Kadoma is in an apparent decline that has never stopped since the collapse of the textile industry and subsequent going out of fashion of cotton farming in surrounding areas.The level of load shedding right in the middle of town spells nothing but a death knell even in the middle of government efforts to bring about cotton to life here, once again.
