The high-density suburb of Ngangu in Chimanimani which used to be a hive of activity with traders bringing wares from neighbouring Mozambique and farmers supplying markets as far as Harare has been devastated by the effects of Cyclone Idai. The Cyclone struck the area with heavy rains and violent winds. Both homes and livelihoods were destroyed, leaving residents seeking refuge in collective centres such as churches, schools and shops.
