Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said his government has identified land to relocate people displaced by Cyclone Idai and those in areas prone to natural disasters.
Mr Mnangagwa said the government was pooling resources to build houses for those left homeless by the cyclone.
“I am grateful for the commitment and perseverance that has been exhibited towards restoring disrupted lives of our communities which were affected by Cyclone Idai,” Mr Mnangagwa was quoted as saying.
The head of state said he was meeting with chiefs to make sure tradition is followed in moving people to new areas, the paper says.
“We are moving people from places that they have traditionally belonged, where their ancestors are. We should make sure we follow tradition. We should not trample on people’s traditions,” The Herald quoted the president as saying.
