drought chaiyo.jpgPeople in the Dande valley in Mbire constituency are poised for yet another severe drought as most crops in the district failed due to persistent dry spells experienced in the last part of the season.

In an interview with ZBC News in Harare recently, Mbire legislator, Cde Paul Mazikana, said crops in some parts of the district were completely destroyed leaving some people in need of assistance.

Cde Mazikana said the situation is worsened by the fact that most crops in the area failed due to the same crisis last season.

He added that most affected areas in the district are Mahuwe, Mushumbi, which covers areas like Mazambara, Shange, Madzomba, Bandazi and Kanongo.

He however urged people to remain calm as government will soon introduce the food for work programme.
