Shang’ombo District Commissioner Lawrence Nyambe says severe hunger has hit the district.

Captain Nyambe said this has been caused by the drought being experienced as a result of climate change.

The district Commissioner said Shang’ombo like the rest of the province, lost most of its crops in the area.

Speaking during the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR), chicken pass on program in Makwelekwele village of Shang’ombo district where he handed over chickens to beneficiaries, the commissioner said due to drought residents did not harvest anything hence the need to use any means in order to save lives.

In God, whose word I praise— in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?
