After Drought, Rain Brings Relief, Flood Damage to Northern Namibia

The rain that fell over many parts of the central north between Sunday night and yesterday morning has brought sighs of relief to the residents especially the farmers who have lost many of their livestock during this year's devastating drought.

The councillor for Uuvudhiya Constituency Amutenya Ndaafa, whose area has been a grazing haven for many farmers from all over the central north, told The Namibian yesterday that Uuvudhiya area got showers and rain was still falling yesterday afternoon.

He said this is a big relief to many farmers who are grazing their animals in that area. According to Ndaafa, many farmers lost cattle because of the severe drought that hit the area.
