Lack of clean water and sanitation systems have been cited as key drivers of cholera in Zimbabwe.                       

A public health specialist, Dr Prosper Chonzi said cholera in Zimbabwe is largely caused by sanitation and sewer reticulation systems.                         

An emergency physician, Dr Vivek Solanki weighed in saying the causes of the disease in Zimbabwe are also a human nature arising from contaminated food.

Zimbabwe Medical Association (ZIMA) past President, Dr Shingi Bopoto said cholera is an ancient disease which exposes the limited adaptation to modern water systems in Zimbabwe.

With the government having already established a ministerial taskforce for Cholera, hopes are high that long lasting solutions will be implemented.
