Authorities in Shurugwi say work to rehabilitate a section of the famous Boterekwa pass which recently caved in at the foot of the escarpment and formed a huge crater owing to tunnels dug underneath by illegal gold miners is now complete.
Great Dyke News 24 reporter Tatenda Mutero spoke to Shurugwi District Development Coordinator (DDC) Langton Mupeta who confirmed that the road has been rehabilitated
The collapse had restricted the flow of traffic to a single lane on the busy highway as motorists tries to avoid a possible catastrophe.
Last week pictures and videos went viral on social media with some people saying the whole Boterekwa has collapsed however the GreatDykeNews24 crew conducted some interviews with a number of residents who refuted the claim that the whole of Boterekwa has collapsed as seen on social media.
According to sources, the collapse came after illegal gold panners in the area dug a 15m-deep and 7m-wide cross-cut tunnel under the road.
