Cyclone Guba

Cyclone Guba flooding still haunts locals

Virginia Pijai, a women’s leader from Numba village in Afore, Ijivitari District in Northern Province said locals dread another similar disaster during heavy downpours.

She said many lessons had been learnt from the disaster, which claimed the loves of 14 people from their village

Pijai said villagers have begun making gardens and building homes away or on higher ground from the rivers and waterways.

However, this does not erase the fear of another flooding disaster.
