Speaking to Eye Radio, Kuk appealed for quick humanitarian intervention.

“The civil population in the area are really affected by the flood that has displaced local residence from their villages. They have left their area and now they are residing in an open environment. Where there’s no shelter, no food, no clean water, no saucepan, no jerrycans and other basic needs.”
