‘ZANU PF Strongholds’ Devastated By Economic Hardships

People living in rural areas have not been spared by the current economic hardships bedevilling the country. Reports suggest that over five million people in Zimbabwe are living in extreme poverty.

Rural hardships have been made worse by the prevailing El Nino-induced drought. Rural folks are therefore terrified by the prospects of impending hunger. A Chihota ward 10 councillor, Nelson Mkwena, who spoke to the Daily News said

People don’t have food; we have severe shortages and really the government must help us.

People are always at my doorstep asking for me to assist but I am also facing the same challenges, but I try to help where I can.

Murehwa ward 9 councillor, Tapfumaneyi Nyamburi also expressed concern with the difficulties his community members are experiencing. He said

Life is hard for most of the villagers and even though they have been coming to me for assistance, crying that I do something, there is little that I have been able to do.

Many people here farm but it hasn’t been enough with the price hikes and most customers will not buy your product if they see that it is high, but the cost of living has risen.

Worse of all we are now resorting to the black market and some are even travelling to Mozambique for groceries because our shops don’t have anything and some things are now even cheaper across the border.

  1. Then why are you voting zanupf back into power?? Voting another party in will help to change things in our country. However if that party is not doing well, people can vote for zanupf back, if zanupf was better than that party.
