  4. Chitungwiza council should attend to that sewage before a disaster happens, they must value people’s lives, lets keep our country clean and health

  10. Great pictures, but the caption on the first one is incorrect and borders on exaggeration. I have counted seven officers, yet the caption claims there are dozens. By implication, we should be seeing at least two dozen officers, thus twenty four. Lets uphold intergrity even in small matters.

  11. Thank you for the swift correction, but good manners and professional ettiquate demands an acknkowledgement.

  12. This is happening because of sanctions,Britain and its allies,kkkkkkkkk!

  13. We all cry blaming government, forgetting that govt is people like you. Even if we give you the chance to run you can fail as well. God is the answer guys.

Sei vasina kuti zvaskuda mwari. .??????Mukai vana Live..

  14. Only God has justice. Let’s pray for Devine intervention from the ever living God. What is impossible with man God can do.

    1. Ana Live musangoti Mwari, Mwari pese pese mhani when you can see that this rot is an act of man. Hapana Mwari paachadzika kudenga to fix our roads, to fix burst water pipes, God works through people. We cant just fold our hands and wait for miracles to take place, we should do something then God can join our initiative
