The Republic of the Congo is currently facing the most severe crises in the country`s history as a massive locust swarm spreads around the country leading to a famine. An old African proverb says “When Brazaville gets a cold, Kinshasa sneezes”. In order to prevent the insects from further spreading around the region, the world community needs to act immediately. The Republic of the Congo therefore urges the world community to provide immediate aid in the form of pesticides, food packages, medical staff etc.
