A villager in Chimanimani identified as Tatenda Zhambe said:

We are now being guided by the stench to recover our relatives. There are a lot of people buried under these huge rocks and mud.

We call on the government to bring sniffer dogs as quickly as possible. I lost two sisters and we don’t know where they are.
