Government has stepped up mechanisms to improve on accountability on the assistance being given to support Cyclone Idai victims.

The Minister of Labour, Public Service and Social Welfare Honourable Sekai Nzenza said government welcomes the assistance for the Cyclone Idai victims highlighting that measures have been taken to ensure there is transparency in the distribution of the donations.

“Mechanisms are now in place to ensure that there is accountability and transparency on how the donations are being distributed. More assistance is trickling in,” she said.

The Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Senator Monica Mutsvangwa saluted those who offered air services support for quickening the response process, among other services.

Minister Mutsvangwa who is Senator for Chimanimani said given the challenges to access the epicentre of the cyclone, helicopters became a necessity.

“It is important to work as a team in the efforts to mitigate the effects of disaster. We are happy with assistance including the provision of helicopters to rescue people and deliver basic provisions,” she said.

She urged Zimbabweans to continue working together in order to be more effective in assisting cyclone victims.
