HeadlineDec 05, 2023

In Tanzania, at least 63 people have been killed since torrential rains over the weekend triggered flooding and mudslides. On Monday, Tanzania’s President Samia Suluhu Hassan cut short her trip to the COP28 climate talks to oversee her government’s response to the disaster. Since October, persistent heavy rains across East Africa have killed at least 350 people and displaced about a million residents of Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Tanzania.
