Locusts ravage rice fields in Kailo

Kindu, December 6th, 2018 (CPA).- Travelers locusts ravaged several hectares of rice field ‘’Paddy’’ in Kailo territory, the president of the civil society territorial coordination, Clement Lupaka, announced to the press during an interview on Thursday with the local press. According to Clement Lupaka, these insects are visible on this vast agrarian expanse for several weeks already, before raising his fear to see that this situation could lead to famine among the population.

He warned the provincial Ministry in charge of Agriculture and agricultural sector partners to get involved and stop the ravaging of fields by these migratory insects.
