CHINGWIZI
– Victims of the Tokwe-Mukosi floods who are in a transit camp at Chingwizi are saying that they are failing to get food aid from Government and NGOs' because they are required to produce national identity cards.
They said most of them do not have IDs' because they got lost during evacuations. They are as a result also failing to get birth certificates for their new born babies, The Mirror can reveal.
Provincial Minister of State for Masvingo Shuvai Mahofa said she was not aware of the problem but said Government would assist if such issues are raised with her office.
She however, cautioned that the measure could have been taken to avoid crooks who disguise as flood victims in order to benefit from the food aid.
"I am not aware of that but what I can assure you is that if there is any such a problem we will definitely facilitate the process of issuing the identity cards to the villagers," she said.
 Approximately 3 000 families were evacuated from the soon-to- be Zimbabwe's largest inland water reservoir's flood basin and stayed for some days in the open land along the Masvingo - Beitbridge Highway before  they were resettled in parts of the Nuanetsi Ranch.
