By Jane Mlambo| Two years after Chimanimani witnessed one of the worst floods in history when Cyclone Idai ravaged the area and some parts of Chipinge, a portion of the road linking the area to the rest of the world has collapsed leaving locals with more questions than answers over the quality of work done.

The locals blame the constructor (name supplied) assigned to rebuild that portion for engaging in corrupt dealings selling cement meant for the road to locals at very cheap prices.

Now that part of the road between Chimanimani District office and Skyline has collapsed due to incessant rains currently being experienced in the country.

According to Chimanimani residents, one person died when a vehicle plunged into the collapsed road.

“We have more questions than answers for Masimba Holdings. One life lost just because of greed and corrupt activities. Truly this company must be held accountable,” one resident posted on Facebook.
