In Nkomazi, the lowveld of Mpumalanga Province is experiencing the consequences of climate change, on Wednesday 21 November 2018 it was the second day of rain fall since September and the rain just stopped the dust and never flowed to any of the streams. The winter was with several rainfalls. The sun is getting warm upto +35 degrees Celsius, it is getting more dry and dusty like winter. People are loosing hope to grow maize as it use to be during this rainy season. Climate change awareness and mitigation majors needs to be speeded.
