– Three people fishing along Runde River in Mwenezi were marooned for 24 hours by rising floods and had to be airlifted to safety by an Air Force of Zimbabwe helicopter.
The incident happened last week on Sunday.
Chiredzi District Civil Protection Unit (CPU) chairperson Clara Muzenda, confirmed the incident and said the three were at the confluence of Runde and Tokwe rivers near Mupapa area on Saturday, when the rivers suddenly started flooding.
Two of them sought refuge at an oasis and one of them climbed up a tree. The CPU sought assistance from the Air Force of Zimbabwe on the same day but a helicopter which was dispatched on Sunday morning managed to rescue the trio after spending a night on the confluence of the two rivers.
"I can confirm that we received a report on Saturday morning that three people from Mwenezi were marooned while fishing in Runde River. The villagers have since been rescued and they were airlifted to safety by a helicopter from the Air Force of Zimbabwe and they are now safe as we speak.
"They were fishing and there was a sudden rise in the tide forcing two of them to run into an oasis while the other climbed up a tree. We urge villagers to be wary of flooding and avoid staying long periods along rivers during this time of raining," said Muzenda.local news
