Swarms of 80 Million Locusts Show Up In 9 African Countries & Persian Gulf – End Times?
News Ghana reports:
Locust swarms are spreading throughout east Africa into the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the Persian Gulf, a UN spokesman said.
“Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda have been affected, with one small swarm reaching the DRC,” said Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. There has also been significant swarm movement in the Persian Gulf.
“Hundreds of thousands of hectares, including cropland and pasture, have already been affected by the ongoing widespread breeding,” Dujarric said.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) warns that immature swarms — the most voracious stage of locust development — will emerge at the start of the upcoming rainy season, which is the most important planting season for some of the worst affected and at-risk countries in East Africa.
In a tweet, the Executive Director for the UN World Food Programme warned that if countries “do nothing” now, they will be forced to spend 15 times more money to feed the 13 million people “devastated by the loss of their crops and livelihoods.” “Which do you think is a better investment?!,” Beasley wrote.
The current swarms of locusts are the most serious outbreak in decades, affecting Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Eritrea and most recently, Tanzania and Uganda. The locusts could fly into South Sudan, a country whose population is already struggling with high levels of hunger. The swarms are extremely large, in North-Eastern Kenya, one swarm was measured to be 37 miles long and 25 miles wide.
FOX News reported that this is the first time since 1944 that the insects have made an appearance in Central Africa! Could this be a sign of The End Times?
