Cyclone Idai (Weather)

Not surprisingly, the incredible death toll from Idai is being put down to “great corrosion of the state’s ability due to corruption”.

The report says the local government failed to warn people in rural areas - while "The internal capacity to respond immediately to disasters like this is zero, and the result is that with every new day, the list of the dead is updated.”

I travelled through Africa 30 years ago - at the time i thought i was travelling through the last days of the undeveloped world and by now those countries would all be modern societies. In fact nothing has changed - maybe it's even worse
