Drought Hits Sesfontein, Namibia

Crop farmers at Sesfontien continue to endure the harsh effects of drought as the springs at the village are drying up, according to the constituency councillor.

Sesfontein Constituency Councillor Klaudius Kaujova said: “The main spring from which farmers get their water is drying up due to climate change. I urge farmers to be patient, as we need to explore other avenues on how to get connected to different entities that can come to their rescue.”

Currently there is nothing much government can do to intervene due to the recent budget cuts, Kaujova told New Era.
