The Western Cape Department of Agriculture and Rural Development together with Transnet Freight Rail are assisting farmers who have been severely affected by the impact of the current drought in some parts of the country. 

General Manager of Agricultural and Bulk Liquids at Transnet Freight Rail Ulreico Davids said food security impacts the entire country; therefore a train service will be used to deliver food to affected farms at no cost. 

Davids said Transnet Freight Rail has allocated the train service to move more food to Vryburg as well as the drought stricken provinces like Kimberly in North West.

“We have already placed the wagon last week Friday. The train will start to move today until next week Monday in Vryburg and Upington which will then further distribute to the farmers in that area.” Davids added.
