The affected families where taken to Marongora camp site near Makuti by the Civil Protection Unit. A visit by this newspaper to Marongora showed that the evacuated families are living in crowded conditions with almost 15 people sharing the same poorly ventilated room without enough blankets.
“We were just brought here after the floods in the Mana area where we stayed but here there are not enough facilities to take care of our families,” said a Mr Kiliwali. Most of the evacuated are families of Mana pools employees. The tourist venue situated along the Zambezi valley is prone to floods.
