Chegutu West legislator Dexter Nduna told Parliament last week on Thursday that about 100 tourists have been robbed while booked at hotels in Victoria Falls in the last four months.
Nduna urged relevant authorities to beef up security for tourists. Said Nduna:
The Committee on Transport and Infrastructure has done quite well resulting in infrastructure development at Victoria Falls Airport which has seen a rise in tourists arrivals in the resort town. Be that as it may, what has now occurred in the past four months is that about 100 tourists were robbed while booked in hotels in Victoria Falls. If this is not attended to, it will have a negative effect on the efforts done in infrastructure development. This is why I stand to ask that relevant authorities look at this scourge that is about to reverse the gains that the Committee on Transport and Infrastructure has brought to this country.
Deputy Speaker of Parliament Mabel Chinomona urged Cde Nduna to bring up the issue as a motion.
