Cyclone Idai Victims Buried In ‘Tomato-box’ Caskets

Victims of Tropical Cyclone Idai are being buried in rudimentary caskets made from tomato boxes.

A Facebook user has castigated funeral assurance companies for not giving back to the communities in their hour of need. In a post made on Tuesday, the writer says:

Burial of Cyclone Idai victims in Chimanimani , honestly using tomato boxes . Nyaradzo, Doves etc cant even donate cheap coffins . What crime did we commit as a Nation.

This in a province where diamonds were first discovered😢😢😢😢😢😢😢
Funeral companies, Nyaradzo, Doves, Moonlight your hour of need is now…. Plough back to the economy

When everyone is donating the little we have, where is doves, nyaradzo, moonlight and other funeral service providers. We don’t need expensive coffins, the basic ones will do

Vakomana musadaro so kuisa vanhu mumabox ematomati shuwa 🙆🏾‍♂

  1. these are lies , no one was buried in tomato boxes, ask those who were or are on the ground, people lets not play with the life of people.

  2. The commentator of Facebook clearly doesn’t appreciate the situation in Chimanimani which was inaccessible from outside.
