”We lost a lot of beasts last week due to the cold weather, said village head Timothy Ndlovu, of Nathisa village in Matopo district, Matabeleland South. “We are worried that if the situation continues we are likely to lose more of our wealth,”
Ndlovu said lack of pastures also exposed their livestock to starvation, adding the villagers cannot afford to buy supplementary stockfeed.
One villager, Zenzo Ncube, expressed fears that if the cold spell continued, most farmers would lose their livestock.
