UN to give $13m for Cyclone Kenneth relief

The United Nations is granting Mozambique and the Comoros Islands $13m (£10m) in emergency aid after the second cyclone battered the region in a month.

The UN said the funds would help provide food and water, as well as repair damaged infrastructure, after Cyclone Kenneth hit northern Mozambique on Thursday last week, flattening entire villages.

Weather experts are warning the latest tropical storm could dump twice as much rain as Cyclone Idai, which killed more than 900 people in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe.

It’s estimated the affected region will need over $2bn to recover.
