Zambézia: Famine leads the population of Morrumbala to eat water tubers

The people of Morrumbala and the administrative posts of Megaza and Chire are feeding on aquatic tubers to satisfy their hunger. The scenario is due to low agricultural production as a result of the effects of the El-Niño phenomenon.

According to the local chief, Francisco Balança, the situation occurs in the towns of Pinda and Chire-sede, where the population uses an aquatic tuber, locally known as nhica, for food.

The head of the town of Pinda said, as quoted by Rádio Mocambique, that the region has had a shortage of rain for more than two months, affecting agricultural production.
