In an interview at Skyline Junction yesterday, 3 Infantry Battalion public relations officer Major Exavier Chibasa said more bodies of Cyclone Idai victims were being recovered each day.
He said some of the passengers who were on board the Trip-Trans bus what was swept away at Skyline were also recovered. Chibasa said member of the Cyclone Idai rescue mission will remain on the ground to accord the deceased a decent burial. Said Chibasa:
Although the actual number of bodies recovered is still to be verified, over 145 bodies have been recovered in Ngangu, Vimba and Rusitu. Three bodies were recovered in Nyanyadzi today (yesterday). The three were identified as the passengers who were on board the Trip-Trans bus what was swept away at Skyline. All areas that were affected by the floods need visiting for evacuation purposes. Our members will remain on the ground working with the local communities to accord the deceased ones a decent burial.
Chibasa said yesterday they airlifted supplies to affected boarding schools whose supply line was cut after bridges were washed away by the floods.
