AT least 11 million children in eastern and southern Africa face hunger, disease, and water shortages as a result of the strongest El Nino weather phenomenon in decades, the United Nations children's fund said.
Severe drought and floods are causing malnutrition and increasing children’s vulnerability to killer diseases such as malaria, diarrhoea, cholera, and dengue fever, Unicef said on Tuesday.
“The consequences could ripple through generations unless affected communities receive support,” it said in a statement.
More than 20 Somalis entered Zimbabwe through the Mozambique border over the weekend in a bid to flee the conflict that has troubled the East African nation for decades.
The Somalis came in through Mariya on their way to Tongogara refugee camp in the Middle Sabi, about 100km from the border. They were carrying heavy bags and had difficulty communicating with the local people since they cannot speak English. “They passed through Zimbabwe Republic Police Rimai sub office and we are not aware of what they were told, but they proceeded with their journey,” said a local man.
