Newlyweds Forced To Spend First Night In Stadium For Breaking Covid-19 Rules.
After breaking Covid-19 regulations, a newly wedded couple was recently forced to spend their first night in the cold at an open stadium in Rwanda.
The couple was arrested together with their guests and taken to an empty stadium where they were forced to observe social distancing to avoid chances of spreading the virus.
They were part of 60 people who were arrested over the weekend at the Le Printemps Hotel in Gasabo District during a reception.
Harerimana Gasana Jean de Dieu, the Finance and Administration Manager at the Hotel Le Printemps said his customers misrepresented that they had come for a regular meal and later saw it as a reception after the wedding.
Makungu Thierry, who was serving guests at the bar, apologized for violating protocols and urged locals to adhere to the set guidelines.
The Standard Media reports that Kimironko Sector Executive Secretary, Umuhoza Rwabukumba warned traders and Rwandans, in general, to refrain from violating Covid-19 regulations, reminding them that the consequences will be more painful than complying with the regulations.
In other news, iHarare had reported that following disruptions caused by Covid-19, the June 2021 Zimsec public examinations for both O and A-Levels have been canceled.
Those who wanted to sit in June are set to join the large majority who are being prepared to sit in November.
The decision to suspend the Zimbabwe School Examinations Council June examinations arose from the delays in sitting the public examinations at the end of last year.
The alterations of the standard calendar for education this year caused by schools having to be closed for the first two and half months of this year to combat the second wave of Covid-19 infection also contributed to the suspension of June exams.
