Namibia’s Worst Drought in 30 Years

Namibia is currently facing its worst drought and famine in 30 years. Many regions have not seen rain in two consecutive years. Although Namibia is twice the size of California and considered an upper middle-income country by the World Bank, an estimated 778,000 Namibians, a third of the population, are either severely or moderately food insecure, according to UNICEF. BET.com takes a look at the impact the drought and famine continues to have for Namibians. Dominique Zonyéé
