The rehabilitation of infrastructure damaged by the incessant rains earlier this year has begun in Umguza district with some areas that had become inaccessible now reachable.

The rehabilitation of the damaged infrastructure started off with major roads which include Bulawayo-Victoria Falls highway and has gone further to roads linking remote parts of the district.

Umguza member of the house of assembly, Dr Obert Mpofu said rehabilitation is progressing smoothly adding efforts are being made to secure land to relocate people living along Umguza river who were affected by the incessant rains.

“We are always on top of the situation when it comes to government programmes we are looking at the boreholes now the roads the clinics the villages that were affected by the incessant rains, schools we have bought the roof and we want to put the roof back so that children are not affected by this calamity,” he said.

The incessant rains destroyed schools, bridges, roads and homes in most parts of the districts which include Nkayi, Tsholotsho, Lupane and Binga with some of the rehabilitation projects being undertaken by the district development fund.
