The Environmental Management Agency says it is working with City of Mutare to ensure clearance of drainage systems, curb cultivation on steep slopes as well as streambank cultivation to avert flooding incidents in the city. EMA provincial manager Mr Kingstone Chitotombe warned residents not to cultivate in these areas and preserve the environment to prevent disasters during the rainy season. Several residential places in Mutare were last year affected by flash floods resulting from a combination of poor maintenance of the drainage systems and cultivation of mountains surrounding the city.
