And in other news… 17/01/2017

Editor’s note

I am sure most of you, if not all, have heard about Cyclone Dineo that is on its way over Africa from Mozambique. We must say our prayers for those poor people and animals in Mozambique, north east of South Africa and Southern Zimbabwe. They are certainly going to have a wet one!

On the news this morning they were talking about safety measures of the upcoming floods caused by Cyclone Dineo, so if anyone is in those areas over the next few days, please take extra care. I am sure we, in Harare, are going only going to get a small amount of rain compared to those more affected. – Sarah

Surviving power cuts the smart way

One situation that comes up frequently in Harare during the rainy season — well, any season, and particularly this current flood season — is the loss of electric power. Now, depending on when the magetsi goes and what work you have to do, you can either call it a day and hit the cocktail bar, or suck it up and get to work.
