    In Zimbabwe, a state of emergency has been declared in affected areas after homes and bridges were washed away by the floodwaters.

    A further 71 people are said to be missing and the death toll is expected to rise when the floodwaters subside.

    The Charles Lwanga Secondary School in the mountainous district of Chimanimani has been closed and the army has been deployed to evacuate the 200 trapped pupils, according to the Department of Civil Protection.

    More than 100 houses have been damaged in the town of Chimanimani, which was cut off on Saturday, according to Zimbabwe’s information ministry.
