Torrential rains that hit Masvingo, Midlands and Matabeleland South provinces over the weekend have caused flooding in districts like Gutu, Chivi, Mberengwa, Gwanda and Chiredzi where dams, bridges, crops and homes have been destroyed while many rivers have overflowed.

Many villagers now need urgent assistance, including immediate evacuation to higher ground.

The Civil Protection Unit is said to be in the affected areas assessing the damage and assisting those affected.

Mberengwa West House of Assembly member and Zanu PF parliamentary chief whip Joram Gumbo says it has now become very difficult to access some areas with communication lines also being destroyed.
