Salomao warns against food shortage in the SADC region

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states have been warned of an impending food shortage as a result of poor rains this season.

SADC executive secretary, Tomaz Salomao, says that the region will experience an overall cereal deficit of 5.5 million tonnes.

Salomao says that, "This will therefore result in an increase in the number of people requiring humanitarian assistance in terms of food and non-food intervention."
