*Never came to school
*Soldiers refused to give them food & transport at Skyline saying no permission
*Teachers walked back to school to get food

*Dining hall & dormitory damaged by landslide on Friday evening killing three people (2 students & security guard)
*Slept at school on Saturday thinking soldiers would come
*Walked to Skyline after running out of food

*Soldiers refused to help them at Skyline, had come to transport dead & said no command to transport students/teachers
*Waited in the rain whilst soldiers had tents & trucks, so decided to walk to Seminary 2 were they slept on Saturday evening


*After soldiers refused them food, teachers went back to the school to get stale food and charge phones, came back Sunday morning
*Went back to Skyline on Sunday but soldiers still refused to help them.


*Later on soldiers said they will travel with teachers & leave students but they refused
*They walked 3km in frustration & that is when soldiers helped them with transport
*Wanted to go home but soldiers took them to Chipinge


*In total there were 172 people at St Charles Lwanga (158 students & 14 teachers)
*They saw the false reports that they received help whilst they were at Skyline
*Initially refused food from soldiers insisting they want to go home
