It’s an unfortunate incident - DPM
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.
