GLEN VIEW residents are blaming condoms and worms which were found in one of the tanks behind Tichagarika Shopping Centre as the primary source of cholera.
Health experts however, say the main source of cholera are two boreholes which are in Glen View.
Speaking to H-Metro on the side-lines of President Mnangagwa’s tour of a cholera treatment centre at Glen View Polyclinic and Tichagarika Shopping Centre on Wednesday, one of the residents said:
“In that tank (Glen View) people found condoms and worms.
“The two are the source of cholera.
“The tanks should be inspected because that’s where this problem (cholera) emanated from.
“Many people lost lives because of cholera and thousands have been infected,” said one of riled resident.
Another resident said:
“These tanks and boreholes should be condemned for good.
“The government should also intervene because we are suffering because of greedy people,” she said.
The health ministry has assured people that they are now in control of the situation.
