Death toll rises as Tanzania reels from flooding, landslides

The death toll from floods in northern Tanzania following torrential rains this weekend has risen to 63, officials have said. Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa said in comments broadcast on television on Monday that the number of injured stood at 116 people. Landslides had destroyed half of one village he visited, he said. “We are here in front of bodies of our fellows. We have lost 63 loved ones. Of the total fellows we lost, 23 are men and 40 are women,” he said during an event to bid farewell to the bodies of those who had died in Hanang district, northern Tanzania. The flooding is the latest example of extreme weather that has devastated East African countries such as Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and South Sudan, with hundreds of people killed since the region’s rainy season began in October. President Samia Suluhu Hassan, who was attending a United Nations climate summit in Dubai, has said that she will return from the trip early to attend to the crisis. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.aljazeera.com/amp/news/2023/12/4/death-toll-rises-as-tanzania-reels-from-flooding-landslides

                  This is a horrific experience for Tanzanians and the world as a whole. Effects of climate change do not respect borders or sovereignty of nations. Let us ensure such things will be left in the past

                        Good that Samia Suluhu first availed herself to attend the summit and make her committment towards solving the crisis,it's unfortunate that we are losing lives every now and then due to this menace.
