A photo of a vendor washing his veggies in sewage water has gone viral. It is not clear whether the photo is from Zimbabwe or some other country.

Zimbabwe is currently battling a deadly cholera outbreak that has so far claimed 30 lives and left over 5 000 others under treatment.

Chairperson of the inter-ministerial committee on cholera Minister July Moyo said the health sector requires at least $51 million to assist a projection of 50 000 patients while local authorities require at least $6 million to be able to revamp sewer and water reticulation infrastructure in hotspots of Glen View and Budiriro.
