Reports www.thezimbabwean.co.uk.

Hwange - Business has gone down in Hwange west because of lack of transport due to a poor road network system. Some curio vendors have been forced to close down business because of lack of transport to take their goods to the near-by tourist town of Victoria Falls. The majority of the roads were made impassable after heavy rains pondered the district. Villagers were walking more than 45km to get to the Victoria Falls Bulawayo highway where they would get transport. The affected areas include Chisuma, Sidobe, Monde and Msuna.

Those were not very helpful rains, even though they reportedly "pondered" the district before deciding to strike... :rolleyes:
