Mnangagwa Claims Damage Was Done By Unexplained Tremors Which Brought “Foreign Rocks” Before Cyclone Idai Arrived
In a dramatic twist to the Cyclone Idai devastation, President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said that he is going to consult experts to investigate what he said was an unexplained tremor which occurred before the cyclone started.
According to the President, this tremor caused landslides which had hot soil and rocks which are foreign to the affected areas falling down and destroying things.
The president revealed all this at Mutare Aerodrome soon after his arrival from Chimanimani yesterday. Mnangagwa is quoted by state media as saying,
Mutsindo wavakanzwa uchirira ndobva makomo atanga kusundidzira ivhu rinopisa richiyerera nematombo asingawanikwi munzvimbo iyoyo akatozara mahombe ayifamba achitsvanya dzimba, achitsvanya zvinhu zvakawanda asi, asiri matombo anowanikwa munzvimbo iyoyo.
Matombo akabva pasi hatisi kuziva kuti zvinorevei asi tichabvunza nyanzvi kuti zvinorevei. Mvura yakazouya kwatova imwe nguva. Yakazouya mvura ikatutsirawo kuparadza asi zvinhu zvanga zvatoparara kare.
But beyond that, it is quite revealing that some areas which we visited had landslides before the rains came and the local people say there was some sound which came earlier on and a lot of mud began falling from the mountains. Rains began falling two hours later. So, you can see that there is some other phenomenon which we are not quite clear about.
The number of people who have died from the cyclone has now risen to 104 although the number is expected to go up as the military said that 500 people were missing while the minister of local government said that as many as 300 Zimbabwean bodies have been washed away into Mozambique.
