EMA Environmental Planning and Monitoring Officer for Manicaland, Ernest Marange applauded stakeholder participation; especially fire management courses by the Fire Department saying it has gone a long way in curbing fire outbreaks by 75%. The 2021 fire season destroyed 62 hectares of land where as only 23 hectares of land have been destroyed by fire this year.
