heavy rains being experienced across the country, Gokwe, Matebeleland, Mashonaland east being included on the list of affected areas.

In an interview with one of the residents identified as Cheza, he told this publication that its history, it has never been experienced in Mafakose admitting to shifts in seasons and mismanagement of waste by local authorities for failure
to clear all drainage systems in the area.
This is not mormal for human life, “Kutogarahana iri mumaoko,” said one resident identified as Ruvimbo.
Mufakose has not been spared by allocation of land to home seekers whom some were allocated in wetlands by land
barons and political gig wigs at the same time not constructing required standard structures which are being inspected.
