Radio Ergo listeners’ calls this week (26 November to 1 December 2020) were mainly about locusts, as in previous weeks, with the majority coming from central regions. The other concerns of callers to the platform included water shortages, the effects of November’s Gati cyclone, and high prices resulting from the falling value of the local currency against the US dollar. There were also calls about Coronavirus, mainly about people’s symptoms.
The feedback platform is open for listeners to call in on the topic of their choice. We listen to and transcribe the messages received and compile weekly reports, as a way of sharing these local voices among a wider community, including national and international decision-makers and responders.
