All is not well in Kadoma were the City’s youths have desecrated a local cemetery, turning it into a sanctuary for drugs and thigh vending.
This came to light after concerned residents notified the city fathers of the cultural despondency taking centre stage in their locality.
Residents lashed out at the council for its negligence on social media, stating that the council should have taken the effort to fence the sacred place.
In some of the photographs, empty bottles of opaque beer and used condoms are strewn all over the place, which betray the activities that have become common in the cemetery.
Tinarwo Mafukidze (63) expressed his disgust towards the youths who have made the cemetery a hive for illegal activities, such as indulging in s_ex and illegal drugs.
”It is shocking how people can have intimacy inside a graveyard, they should at least show some respect for the dead. During our days it was unheard of that people can have s_ex in a graveyard,” he said.
Kadoma Mayor, Alderman Action Nyamukondiwa yesterday said that the council was moving swiftly to address the matter as plans to construct a security wall were underway.
“The housing department is going to clean up the cemetery and in our 2019 budget we have put money for construction of ‘durawall’ (security wall),” he said.
