Is Cyclone Aid Only Reaching Zimbabwe's Ruling Party Supporters?

Zimbabwe's ruling Zanu-PF party has refuted claims of partisan distribution of food aid to victims of Cyclone Idai in Chimanimani and Chipinge - the worst affected areas after the deadly tropical cyclone ripped through the province leaving a trail of destruction. Affected villagers have accused ruling party officials of politicising the disaster relief by donating food to their supporters only.

People in Chimanimani complain to senior army officials in charge of a temporary camp set up after Cyclone Idai that food is not reaching them.
