South Africa: 443 lose their lives in the KZN floods and 63 others still missing

The death toll in the floods in KwaZulu-Natal has risen to 443, with an estimated 63 people still missing. Premier Sihle Zikalala announced on Sunday that ongoing inclement weather was slowing rescue efforts on the ground.

Speaking at a comprehensive briefing, Zikalala said systems were being put in place, relief funds were being audited and all forms of looting of this money would be averted.

“We have learnt during Covid-19 and no maladministration, corruption or fraud will be tolerated. All funds will be used prudently and nobody will be allowed to use human suffering and misery to line their own pockets,” Zikalala said.
