Beitbridge Houses Destroyed Hours After Being Commissioned By Mnangagwa

Beitbridge Houses Destroyed Hours After Being Commissioned By Mnangagwa

Four of the 28 government staff houses commissioned by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in Beitbridge on Wednesday suffered roof damage during a storm just hours after the official ceremony.

Strong winds blew zinc roofing sheets from a nearby house onto the four properties, causing damage to the asbestos roofing.

The incident took place at around 3 PM after Mnangagwa had left for a ZANU PF rally at Dulivhadzimo Stadium.

Zinc roofing sheets from the neighbour’s house, identified only as Ndou, could be seen lying near the new houses commissioned by Mnangagwa just a few hours earlier.

Faith Tamirepi, a tenant at Ndou’s house, told ZimLive:

The roof was partially blown off during a storm and our property was soaked.

We picked some of the roofing sheets at those new houses and we’re just waiting for the owner of the house.

She said no one was injured.

President Mnangagwa commissioned the 28 new houses which are part of 52 built so far to accommodate government workers in the border town – Zimbabwe’s gateway to South Africa.

Good evening

@damn, there is not yet full genuine devolution. Some of the things zvinofambirwa kundovhurwa I think should be done by sabhukus like zvibhorani, houses by Minister of State, but Minister of housing wat wat anenge aripo as guest of honour, road reconstruction by Minister of transport, n so forth

Look abroad, Presidents of China n Russia rarely talk or commission those small things. Pavanozonzi vataura even Americans would want to know kuti kwanziyi.

Next door, in SA Ramaphosa haangonzi ataura.

Yours truly

Remember this is Zim, European, American or South African politics may not be applicable in Zim. That commissioning of houses got the President close to Bietbridge folks, its being practical, he showed him what he can bring ti the community and then he is going for a rally to promise them more. Thats Zim politics, stay connected to the people, small things matters, if he (ED) can make time for those small things surely they can make time vote for him.

Remember all those who say they don't like ED are the ones who enjoy the sound of sirens of his beautiful motorcade😎
