By Own Correspondent| Education Minister Professor Paul Mavhima has dispelled as false statements alleging that two primary school pupils succumbed to cholera.
He was speaking to journalists soon after the First Lady Auxilia Mnangagwa’s tour of Beatrice Infectious hospital Tuesday afternoon where she was visiting cholera victims.
Said Professor Mavhima:
“Let me also take this opportunity to tell you that contrary to claims that 2 pupils died from cholera, I would like to tell you that this is not true.
What we have is a situation where our pupils have lost their parents. I would also like to tell you that schools are actually safer than homes because at school, we have ensured that there is adequate water and the learners are practising good hygiene because we are teaching them about cholera.”
