“Through the banner, ‘NSSA for Good’, we have availed the two facilities to the government as our humble contribution towards this national cause,” Manase said.
Ekusileni, a brainchild of the late Vice-President Joshua Nkomo, has been lying derelict since 2004 after it was shut down shortly after opening its doors.

Previous efforts to re-open the hospital have been unsuccessful.
The Beitbridge hotel was formerly leased by the Rainbow Tourism Group (RTG) who shut it down in 2016 following years of successive losses.
So far, eight cases of COVID-19 have been recorded in Zimbabwe, with one fatality.
The Health ministry has reported that the seven active cases are of patients with mild COVID-19.
