Cyclone Idai: Appeal for US$40.8 million to provide life-saving assistance - UN in Mozambique
Passenger carriers with routes in or to the centre and north of Mozambique are complaining of low passenger numbers and difficulties getting through even after the reopening of the Lamego – Nhamatanda section of the N6.
The passage of Cyclone Idai rocked communications with the centre of the country. The section between Lamego and Nhamatanda was reopened last week, but passenger carriers say there is still a shortage of passengers.
In addition to the lack of passengers, transporters say that transiting the previously interrupted section takes on average 30 to 40 minutes, creating some inconvenience.
Mr. Pedro and young Armando in the report below were waiting for the vehicle to take them to Beira on Saturday morning and expressed some concern about not knowing the state of the route to their destination.
There were only about 20 passengers in the 56-seater buses travelling to Beira on the day this report was filed.
