Chadzamira Lied About Cyclone Idai Casualties In Bikita?

Ezra Chadzamira
Contrary to a statement released by Masvingo State Minister Ezra Chadzamira- in which he pointed out that three people were killed by Tropical Cyclone Idai, the department of Social Welfare has said in actual fact eight people died as a of the natural disaster in Bikita District.
Chadzamira said only three people died as a result of Tropical Cyclone Idai.
Impeccable sources at the department of Social Welfare said Chadzamira could have been misinformed about the figure.
“I think the Minister was somehow misinformed about the actual number of people who died in Bikita District.
The actual figure is eight not three, so I do not know how he(Chadzamira ) arrived at the latter number,” a senior Social 
Welfare official told yesterday.
“We got the figure on Tuesday so I think the Minister was misinformed,”added the official.
