A powerful cyclone was set to make landfall in northern Mozambique Thursday, barely a month after a super-storm slammed into the country’s centre, leaving hundreds dead and causing devastation.
The South African Weather Services says Cyclone Kenneth which is expected to hit Tanzania and Mozambique this week, will not affect South Africa.
Another tropical cyclone is expected to make landfall on the coast of Mozambique on Thursday, just over a month after the powerful Cyclone Idai struck the country’s port city of Beira, killing hundreds of people.
A South African court ruled that a Mozambican ex-finance minister held since December on a US arrest warrant can be extradited to either the United States or his home country.
Hundreds of thousands of people are in need of food, water and shelter after Cyclone Idai battered Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
