ANC CHRIS HANI REGION STATEMENT ON THE FLOODS ACROSS THE REGION

The ANC Chris Hani Region conveys its most sincere sympathy to all families, communities and businesses that have been badly affected by the floods that befallen our Region. Our Region experienced heavy rain falls that led to flooding, damaging and loss of properties for households, businesses and community facilities.

The ANC continues to receive updates about the developments of this situation from the Chris Hani District Municipality and the affected local municipalities.

We commend both the Chris Hani District Municipality and local municipalities for their swift response in evacuating all affected people to all community halls as holding places of safety.

As the leader of society, the ANC is doing its best in mobilizing all stakeholders to come on board in giving a helping hand to the affected families and homes. We are further calling on Good Samaritans to come forward in aiding the affected communities. Communities are further urged to be patient and exercise caution during this difficult time as roads and infrastructure have been affected, as we have seen some power outages in certain parts during the heavy rains.

Roads and bridges have been highly affected as some have collapsed, let us practice high vigilance during this time.

The ANC Regional Office is already on the ground providing a soup kitchen for the victims, food parcels, clothes, and blankets. As part of our Letsema Campaign, we are mobilizing all ANC structures across the Region to roll their sleeves and volunteer their services and helping the affected families and communities.

The ANC will continue to monitor the situation and respond accordingly.
