PM expresses solidarity with flood victims
ONDANGWA, 17 APR (NAMPA) - Government will continue to assess and monitor the flood situation through disaster response activities at regional and constituency levels, to ensure that needed assistance is offered to those who need it most.
Prime Minister (PM) Saara Kuugongelwa-Amadhila said this at the 2017 Ondangwa Trade and Industrial Exhibition gala dinner in the Oshana Region Saturday evening.
She said Government will also continue with efforts to strengthen national capacity building for disaster risk identification and mitigation, enhancement of preparedness for disaster and recovery from disaster to ensure that economic activities are not disrupted as a result of disasters.
The affected people in the Oshana Region, comprising 566 people, have been relocated to Oshakati Ekuku reception centre on the way to the Okatana Roman Catholic Mission Centre.
Kuugongelwa-Amadhila expressed solidarity with those who have been hit hard by the devastating floods.
The floods are as a result of this year’s rainy season, as well as the Efundja or seasonal flood caused by the massive inflows from the Cuvelai Delta in southern Angola.
Several parts in northern Namibia continue to receive good rain over the Easter weekend.
