Flooding in Tanzania

A relief effort is underway in the commercial capital of Tanzania, Dar es Salaam, following flooding caused by three days of heavy rain.

At least 20 people have reportedly been killed and thousands made homeless.

The Tanzania Meteorological Agency says the rains are the heaviest the East African country has experienced for more than 50 years.

Daniel Dickinson asked Philippe Poinsot, the Country Director of the UN Development Programme, UNDP, about the latest situation.
