The government says work to rehabilitate infrastructure destroyed by the devastating floods in Matabeleland South Province is underway while various strategies have been put in place to assist with relief aid.

This came out during a visit by a delegation of foreign military attaches accredited to Zimbabwe in Gwanda this Monday (today).

The visit that was organised by the Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) gave the attaches an opportunity to have a better understanding of the country.

They were drawn from Mozambique, Angola, Namibia, Malawi, Botswana, Botswana, China and Russia.

The Minister of State for Matabeleland South Province, Cde Abednico Ncube spoke of the devastating impact of the cyclone induced floods and the work that the government is doing to redress the situation.

The delegation was also informed about the vast investment opportunities in the province particularly in the areas of agriculture, mining and tourism.

The visitors had the opportunity to visit areas such as Ntalele in Gwanda North where rehabilitation of road infrastructure is underway.

The rains destroyed 37 bridges, 8 dams, 12 boreholes, 400 homes and 200 hectares of crops as well as schools, clinics and roads.
