YOU ARE STAYING AT BELVEDERE : RETURNEES TOLD


The 65 Zimbabweans who returned from the UK have been told that they will have to stay at Belvedere Teachers College.

The government said it had failed to secure alternative accommodation. Labour and Social Welfare Secretary Mr Simon Masanga yesterday said Government was now working on availing borehole water to the returnees for drinking, adding that the college already had running water from the local authority.

“The institution had running water, but what they wanted was borehole water and we are in the process of getting that sorted,” he said.

“However, today we will organise bottled water for them. Since we could not secure accommodation for them at the UZ, that means we will have to work with what is there. They will have to stay at Belvedere Teachers’ College, after all this is only a temporary arrangement.”

Mr Masanga said those intending to get their personal blankets and linen from their relatives were free to do so, but no interaction would be permitted between them and their relatives.
