Rumours on major social media platforms suggest that Zororo Makamba is the second victim of Covid-19 and that he is in Intensive care unit.
Zororo Makamba is Director and Co-Founder of Eleven Dogs, a digital media and broadcasting company. He is the current host and Executive Producer of Point of View with Zororo Makamba and is the second son of businessman James Makamba.
Official reports say that the 2nd victim is a 30-year-old man who recently travelled from New York:
The patient is a 30-year-old man who returned to Harare from New York via South Africa earlier this month.
He then fell sick and self-isolated until he went into respiratory distress on Thursday and was rushed to Harare’s Wilkins Infectious Disease Hospital.
A leaked Whatsapp chat revealed that Zororo recently travelled from New York and is in ICU because of chest problems.
[22/03, 10:34] : Socialite Zororo Makamba son of James Makamba is the second confirmed case of Covid 19. He was recently in New York it’s unknown how many people he has interacted with and infected
This thing is very serious and we urgently need to do scenario planning
[22/03, 10:34] : It’s true. His girlfriend Nyari Mutezo is a dentist. She attended to someone who then tested positive. Zororo is in intensive care. He has a pre existing condition in that he had a tumour in his chest that was removed. I think that’s why it had affected him badly. The whole Mutezo family is under quarantine
Maybe it’s just a coincidence or fake news doing rounds on social media as usual. But what we know is that Zororo Makamba is 30yrs of age and likes travelling a lot and recently got back from New York.
