Desperate farmer must fend for themselves

Desperate farmer must fend for themselves

Niël Terblanché

 

COMMUNITIES in the northeastern parts of Namibia are facing severe food shortages as a result of giant swarms of locusts that are destroying their crops at an astonishing rate.

 

Farmers have been left to fend for themselves.

 

 

Their only recourse against the scourge is to run through their fields in an effort to scare the millions of insects into flying up and away from what is left of the crops.

 

The desperation is clearly audible in the voice of the woman and her children while the destruction is clearly visible in the video clip.
