Approximately seventy families have been moved to safe havens in Chimanimani District amid the expected Cyclone Chalane which is expected to hit some lower parts of the Manicaland Province especially the Chimanimani District and Chipinge.
At least ten ZUPCO buses ferried members of the Chimanimani community especially those who were still living in tents to St Patricks Nyanyadzi High, Lydia Chimonyo High School and Mutambara High School of which all are boarding schools. This is to ensure safety of people on the expected cyclone Chalane which is expected to move from Beira in Mozambique to Chimanimani. These people were carried under the strict guidelines of the Covid 19 restrictions. Government under the Civil Protection Unit had to find low places were these families were going to live until it was safe to go back to their homes.
Yesterday as each family settled they were given a 20 litre bottle to fetch water, a sanitizer, a face mask and tissues. They were all put at the classroom area to avoid them in the hostel area where school children left their belongings. In a report yesterday Mr James Ngoma said the center of Tropical Storm Chalane is expected to make landfall near Beira today. The public has been urged not to cross flooded rivers today. The Ministry of Transport is also there monitoring road networks and fixing problems where there are challenges of vehicle movement.
