Tuesday, 6th February, 2024

MBABANE:The effects of climate change were experienced again in eSwatini on Monday night as a hailstorm left multimillion damage in the capital city-Mbabane and other areas.

Mitigating the effects of climate change is part of the United Nations(UN) Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs) agenda 2030.

Thulisile Dladla,the Deputy Prime Minister(DPM) whose Ministry is responsible for disasters,had not responded at the time of compiling this report.

But some officials within government alleged that, Cabinet was writing proposals to international organizations seeking funding on climate change.

Reached for comments on Tuesday,Sivumelwano Nyembe,the Spokesperson of the pro-democracy MultiStakeholder Forum(MSF) said, “it seems the country is not prepared for the effects of climate-change” both at national and domestic level.

“We should be receiving the necessary advice even from Government to change the materials including roofing for our houses.But it’s unfortunate that the Government allowed sub-quality building material to be sold in the shops”, said the MSF Spokesperson.
