Midlands Civil Protection Unit (CPU) has dispatched an investigation team led by the Environmental Management Agency (EMA) to probe Mnene mission and inspect its sewer disposal system amid revelations that the Lutheran Church run institution could be the source of the cholera outbreak in Mberengwa.
Mnene mission had earlier been fingered as the possible source of a cholera outbreak that recently hit Chomubobo resettlement area in Mberengwa after samples taken from the river which is the main water source for people in the area was discovered to be contaminated.
It is suspected that raw sewer from Mnene mission might have trespassed into Mnene River and contaminated water and affected its downstream.
Mnene mission is in a high lying area from where the river flows.
