Chitungwiza Town Council has dismissed as fake, circulating pictures showing earth movers demolishing houses.
The pictures circulated day following a decision by the council to demolish illegal structures built on land that had not been approved for residential development.
“Chitungwiza Municipality is not demolishing anything of this sort at the moment. These pictures are circulating on social media and what is portrayed is far from the truth,” the municipalty said.
There was a social media outcry pertaining to the circulating pictures with people attacking the Chitungwiza municipality for being inhuman.
