The government has pledged to assist families who lost their homes to heavy winds and rains that were experienced last week.

This came up during a Zanu PF Masvingo provincial executive meeting that was held at the party’s provincial headquarters this weekend.

Over 70 households were destroyed by the strong winds and rains experienced recently, leaving families desperate for shelter.

Zanu PF Masvingo Provincial Chairman and Minister of State for Masvingo Province, Cde Ezra Chadzamira said they will visit the affected families on Tuesday to handover money and other basics.

“The government will give $1000 to each of the affected families and as a province we have some goods that we will take to Chingwizi,” he said.

Cde Chadzamira also assured the province that there is enough maize to be distributed in drought prone areas.

He said the government will ensure that all rural communities have enough food.

Focusing on youth development, Cde Chadzamira urged them to come up with viable projects noting that the government will assist them to set up their businesses.
