The World Toursim Organization (UNWTO) has sent message of condolence to the people of Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique following a fatal hit of cyclone over the weekend resulting in over eighty deaths in these three countries as reported by the BBC.

In a message posted on its official pages on social media the UNWTO said “ With great sadness we have heard the news from #Mozambique????????, #Malawi ???????? and #Zimbabwe ???????? regarding the victims and destruction caused by the tropical cyclone #Idai…Our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to the people of Mozambique, Malawi, and Zimbabwe”.

A tropical storm has swept away bridges and homes in eastern Zimbabwe, killing at least 24 people, officials say.

Cyclone Idai cut off power and communications in parts of Manicaland province on the border with Mozambique. Some 40 people are missing.

People fled from their homes to the slopes of mountain and were waiting to be rescued, but strong winds have hampered helicopter flights.

In Mozambique, where Idai made landfall on Thursday, at least 19 people died.

Flooding across the rest of the country had already killed nearly 70 people before the storm’s arrival.
