MAPUTO - Mozambique is bracing for yet another cyclone.

Kenneth is expected to hit northern Mozambique and southern Tanzania on Thursday.

 

It's not expected to cause the kind of devastation brought by Cyclone Idai.

But the heavy rains are likely to hamper the recovery from Idai.

The city of Beira was almost completely levelled by winds and flood waters in March.

Beira became the centre of a cholera epidemic afterwards.

At least 1,000 people lost their lives in Mozambique and Zimbabwe with close to two million people left in desperate need of aid.
