It’s an un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent - DPM

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

The Deputy Prime Min­is­ter ( DPM) Paul Dlamini de­scribed the havoc that left many peo­ple with no roof over their heads last Fri­day’s storm as an un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent.

The DPM was speak­ing yes­ter­day at Mobeni Mat­sapha Es­tate dur­ing his visit to the af­fected places and peo­ple. Dlamini said the storm was an un­for­tu­nate in­ci­dent as it came at a time when the na­tion has prayed for rains so they could plough fields.

“The na­tion has been pray­ing for rains not this dis­as­ter.

This is a dis­as­ter as it was not a man made sit­u­a­tion,” the DPM said. He men­tioned that he was lost of words to say to com­fort those who were vic­tims of the dis­as­ter. He then passed words of com­fort to all those af­fected.

He said gov­ern­ment was still look­ing into ways on which the af­fected peo­ple can be as­sisted. He said he re­ceived a call last night in­form­ing him about the dis­as­ter caused by the storms which hit hard the Manzini re­gion.

The DPM then ac­knowl­edged the Na­tional Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Agency for their swift re­sponse in pro­vid­ing wa­ter and blan­kets to some of the peo­ple af­fected. At Mobeni Mat­sapha Es­tate, there was no wa­ter and elec­tric­ity es­pe­cially in the flats.
