The MSD has noted that there are some messages circulating on the social media that talk about ex-Tropical Cyclone IDAI affecting some parts of Zimbabwe such as Muzarabani, Mount Darwin, Mutoko; regeneration of Idai and how it will affect different parts of the country.
Of concern are some messages that may have now gone overboard to the extent of misleading the public without making recourse to the Department about the real situation. While we have no problem with social media, we take exception to those messages that become sensational on matters of life and death.
MSD also urged the public to desist from circulating false information and causing unnecessary panic.
