The DA welcomes the deployment of SANDF troops to flood-stricken Mozambique where 71 lives have been lost and 80 000 people have been impacted. At the same time, we are deeply concerned about floods in Malawi where 200 people have died and 110 000 have been displaced.
We extend our condolences to the family, friends and loved ones of all those who died in these horrific tragedies in our neighbouring countries.
We acknowledge the efforts of South African troops that have been deployed in Mozambique. The DA calls on SADC to do everything possible to expand relief efforts that will restore stability in these 2 countries during this time of need.
Our thoughts are with the people of Malawi and Mozambique during this difficult time.
Shadow Minister of International Relations and Cooperation
