Torwood health disaster

Residents here are living in fear of the imminent health disaster posed by the poor condition of ablution facilities in the area.

Houses are constructed in such a way that families of up to eight have to share a dilapidated toilet with no efficient flushing systems. Many of the residents use bucket latrines.

During a press conference held in Kwekwe, Health Minister Henry Madzorera bemoaned the situation.

“There is need to go beyond just expecting the MP to do something on the problem in Torwood because he has failed in the past two and half years he has been in office. The people there live in fear of a real outbreak of cholera or diarrhoeal diseases,” Madzorera said.

Residents who spoke to The Zimbabwean said the constituency House of Assembly Member Isheunesu Muza of Zanu (PF) had turned a blind eye to the crisis .

“We have tried to push our MP to do something but he has ignored us,” said one resident.

Others accused Muza of misusing money from the Constituency Development Fund (CDF).
