The Ad-Hoc Joint Committee on Flood Disaster Relief and Recovery says rebuilding houses & infrastructure in KwaZulu-Natal, after the recent devastating floods, will cost more than R25-billion.

The floods, in April, left more than 450 people dead.

The committee’s chairperson, Jomo Nyambi, says they paid the province a visit last week to gauge the overall damage.

Nyambi says there is also a great need for humanitarian assistance to be rolled out to affected residents.
