Resettlement hurdles for Tokwe Mukosi victims

Displaced villagers in the Tokwe Mukosi flood area still face mammoth hurdles. The Minister of State for Provincial Affairs in Masvingo, Kudakwashe Bhasikiti , said the government had identified land some two km away and wanted to ensure that it would be ready for agricultural use by the end of the year.

But most of the people awaiting resettlement left their homes with very little and will require a lot of support to restart their lives. Government has been struggling to provide for their upkeep with the majority of support coming from churches and NGOs.

“We have identified permanent places where new schools will now be built. We have got people and companies who have taken up the challenge to build permanent schools and government is also putting up its own structures,” said Bhasikiti.
