Corporates that pledged assistance towards post-Cyclone Idai reconstruction in Chimanimani have been urged to honour their promises as a lot still needs to be done to restore normalcy in the area.
Access to schools and markets for agricultural produce is still a challenge in Chimanimani’s Tiya community, owing to the bad state of roads.
Said a villager, “We survive on farming, but we are facing challenges in transporting our produce to the markets.”
Another added, “We have a school across the river, but our children cannot cross the river because there is no road and no bridge.”
This has seen Chimanimani East legislator, Honourable Joshua Sacco encourage corporates that pledged to assist in reconstruction efforts to honour their promises.
“As you are aware government has done a wonderful job for this community since the aftermath of the Cyclone Idai. However there are a number of roads that need to be attended to since the majority of the roads rehabilitated are the main one that leads in and out of the district,” he said.
Meanwhile, government continues with reconstruction efforts with the latest being a classroom block at Tiya Secondary School.
