New lovers paradise discovered in New Marimba and Mufakose. Couples find new hangout spots as rules are relaxed. The lockdown has forced many couples to stay apart but as the country continues to ease their lockdown rules, things are seen ‘improving’ on the romantic front.
When H-Metro visited the area yesterday, couples could be seen practising social distancing amongst themselves as they spent time together in ‘park.’ The open space between New Marimba and Mufakose has been turned into a lovers’ paradise where couples hang out as most recreational places have been forced to close due to the lockdown.
The Covid-19 induced lockdown has seen malls, movie houses, and other recreational facilities shutting their doors or operating unusually which has prompted these young couples to become innovative on how to spend time together. Most of the couples that H-Metro saw, were taking advantage of the secluded area to fondle each other and kiss in public which is probably what they were missing during the strict level one lockdown.
Life in lockdown has been tough on many relationships of people living in different suburbs as there are numerous roadblocks and travel restrictions but as the restrictions continue to be relaxed, lovers are reuniting.
