Gvt Releases Statement on Cyclone Joanina
The government has calmed the waters so to speaks amid fears of cyclone Joanina following rumors on social media that it will hit Zimbabwe soon.
Speaking at a media briefing, Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Minister Monica Mutsvangwa urged Zimbabweans to rely on correct and verified information.
Minister Mutsvangwa said Cyclone Joanina will not hit Zimbabwe as it is forecast to start and end in the Indian Ocean.
“It is understandable that people are anxious after the calamity which befell us in the form of Cyclone Idai but it is strongly advisable that people should rely on correct information sources,” said Minister Mutsvangwa.
The new phenomenon of social media is not an official and authoritative source of information as more often it is replete with rumours, falsehoods and sometimes downright mischief which should be taken with cautions.
She said the Meteorological Department will however continue to monitor for any changes should they occur.
