Residents live in fear of bees

The bees, which turned the ceiling of one of the flats on second floor into a beehive, are stinging residents at will.


So unruly are the bees that terrified residents now have to stay in-doors with windows shut despite the excessively hot temperatures experienced in Harare in recent days.


Those hardest hit by the bees are children who have been forced to stop playing games outside the flats after returning from schools or during weekends.


Two weeks ago, a young boy failed to go to school after a bee sting left him with a swollen face. Residents fear the worst if the bees attack children or even adults in their numbers.

Attempts by the concerned residents to have bees removed have been fruitless.


They reported the matter to the Department of National Parks where they were told the Ministry of Agriculture at Ngungunyana buildings was now handling bee removals.


An official said to be a bee remover at Ngungunyana visited Balmoral court and instead of explaining how he could remove the bees, said he was too old to climb into the ceiling.


This left the residents at a loss over how to tackle the menacing bees. They are now appealing to organisations or individuals who may have the know-how to remove bees to call 0772438804 in order to get in touch with the affected families.
