Mozambican PM visits areas hit by cyclone Dineo

Xinhua, February 20, 2017 Adjust font size:

Mozambican Prime Minster Carlos Agostinho do Rosario paid a visit on Sunday to southern Inhambane province, which was hit by cyclone Dineo last Wednesday.

Do Rosario was told by the provincial government that it needs around 13 million U.S. dollars for reconstruction after the devastation left by the cyclone.

At least 7 people were dead and 130,000 people were affected by the cyclone in the province.

"We would like to salute the people for their resilient manner. We noticed that our people are rebuilding by themselves," said the Prime Minister.

Meanwhile, more than 1,000 people have returned to their homes, but more than 100,000 people are still living in temporary accommodations such as schools and state institutions. Endit
