President Emmerson Mnangagwa says the country’s special forces are doing all they can to carry out rescue operations in areas affected by cyclone Idai.
Speaking upon his arrival at the Robert Gabriel Mugabe International Airport in Harare on, Monday morning, after he cut short his trip to the United Arab Emirates, President Mnangagwa said the country is deeply grieved by the loss of lives and the destruction left by cyclone Idai.
Meanwhile the death toll from cyclone Idai has risen to 82, with other victims still missing.  Local Government, Public Works and National Housing Minister July Moyo who is leading a ministerial delegation that is assessing the damage caused by the cyclone in Manicaland, told Star FM News that it is difficult to ascertain numbers of those missing as communication between rescue teams has been made difficult by power outages caused by the destruction of electricity lines.
