Grandpa Sleeps With His Grandchildren In One Room

A 71-year-old Sakubva man is living with his four grandchildren in one room, two being girls making it difficult to subsist and sleeping at work is a blessing to him as it gives his grandchildren more space and room to sleep

These one rooms where build as bachelors’ quarters for males most of whom were domestic and plantation workers in Rhodesia. But now the situation is totally different. The city council still owns the rooms but they are now dilapidated and residence can not fix anything as the council is the only authority responsible to fix any damage. Due to the economic situation the council is not able to do any repairs or renovations to these rooms and hence the deterioration.
