In what could be a sign of bad omen, a windstorm hit Bulilima district last week and destroyed solar panels at a San community irrigation project funded by First Lady Auxillia Mnangagwa.
According to NewsDay the panels were used to run a water pump to water vegetables tendered by the San people.
The windstorm, which hit Bulilima last Wednesday afternoon, left a trail of destruction in the area, including the solar panels sourced by Mnangagwa’s Angel of Hope Foundation.
A team led by District Development Fund officials went to the scene on Thursday to assess the damage and make repairs.
Bulilima district coordinator (formerly district administrator) Nyasha Majonga yesterday confirmed the damage, but said the problem had since been rectified.
“Yes there was some blowing off of solar panels, but as I speak to you, the problem has been rectified and it is business as usual,” Majonga told NewsdayNewsDay.
