Karoo, SA. farmers experiencing worst drought

Published

Farmers in the Karoo town of Graaff Reinet say they're experiencing the worst drought in more than forty years.
The last time the Eastern Cape town had a downpour was in February this year when it recorded 22 millimeters of rain.
This has forced livestock producers to reduce their herds by between 50% to 70%.
They're now appealing to government to intervene as the drought is crippling the town's economy.
Lerato Thipa has this report.
