Learners Escape Death As Classroom Roof Is Blown Away

28 October 2020

A whirlwind blew off the roof of one classroom block Catholic Church-run boarding school in Tsholotsho forcing learners to hide under desks.

Sources at Magama Mission who spoke to NewZimbabwe said there were a few pupils in the classroom when the incident happened. The source said:

They hid under desks when the wind blew off the roof. Some of the sheets fell into the class while some were scattered around the school grounds.

The pupils were just seated in classrooms as there were no lessons as yet.

Meanwhile, authorities at the school are appealing for donations from sympathisers and stakeholders to repair the roof before the rains come.

Nearly 20 schools in Matabeleland North have been damaged by weather conditions this month alone while a similar incident hit Gonye Primary School in Nkayi on Saturday damaging the roof of two blocks.

Zimbabwe this year has set aside millions of United States dollars to help people institutions that would have been affected by bad weather.

Meanwhile, some say disaster management skills are a necessity considering the rate at which disasters recur.
