Mozambique PM to visit victims of cyclone Dineo

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Mozambique’s Prime Minister, Carlos Agostinho do Rosario, will on Sunday visit thousands of residents at Inhambane and Gaza provinces, following tropical cyclone Dineo.

Cyclone Dineo hit many residential areas in the southern parts of the country hard this past week, leaving seven people dead including a toddler.

Houses and infrastructure was destroyed, and more than 700 000 people were displaced due to high water levels.

The Prime Minister will be accompanied by delegates from government and emergency services personnel.

The visit by the Prime Minister seeks to come up with plans on what could be done to meet those affected half way, so that they can re-build their lives.

National Emergency services director, Mauricio Xerinda, says some of their officials are still on the ground continuing with rescue operations and they are not yet able to determine the extent of the damage caused by Dineo.

Meanwhile, wet weather continues to persist in some parts of Mozambique.
