PICTURES: Chief Marange’s Poverty In An Area Producing Billions For Private Companies & Politicians

Pictures taken by Farai Maguwu that were posted on Facebook show how a traditional chief in an area that has produced billions in revenue for private companies and the government, lives in poverty.

Can’t their human emotions appeal to their conscience?
