Ramaphosa is visiting various communities in the province in the midst of the floods.

“What is painful is that a lot of people have died. Their homes have been destroyed, streets, towns and this church has been destroyed. So we said let’s go to the areas to see the damage ourselves in order to see how the government can help,” Ramaphosa.
