Oppah Muchinguri says Zim on High Alert For Earthquakes

Water and Climate Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri has said that the country is on high alert for earthquakes due to the increasing frequency of earth tremors. Speaking at the 2018 Parliamentary pre-budget seminar in Victoria Falls, Muchinguri said:

Zimbabwe is being revisited regularly by seismic disasters (earthquakes). We have had 50 seismic disasters so far since last year and we need our scientists to begin looking into these issues so that we are able to come up with policies to advise on how dams and even buildings would be constructed.

In the past, earthquakes were not a concern but now regularly we are experiencing these in the Zambezi Valley. There is a possibility that these seismic disasters can be of high magnitude destroying infrastructure and causing deaths
