KwaZulu-Natal Floods in South Africa

As the death toll continues to rise in KwaZulu-Natal following the devasting floods, the African Union Development Agency-NEPAD wishes to extend its deepest condolences to the Government and people of South Africa. AUDA-NEPAD stands by the South African people during this difficult period that has seen the displacement of thousands of people, the destruction of property and infrastructure, as we all as the unfortunate loss of lives.

The staff of AUDA-NEPAD extend their heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and friends during this time of national mourning. Indeed, we cannot truly count the cost of the loss in KwaZulu-Natal province, nor underestimate the effort that will be needed for the rebuilding and healing processes.

However, while acknowledging that we cannot fight against nature, we wish to entreat all South Africans to keep their hopes alive in the face of this national disaster.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Government and people of South Africa, and we remain hopeful that the strength and resilience of all those affected will be a source of inspiration as the Government continues with its relief efforts.
