According to the state news agency AIM on Tuesday, Casimiro Abreu, deputy director of the National Disasters Management Institute (INGC) revealed the latest figure on Monday.

The previous figure for fatalities released a week ago was 117.

Abreu warned that the death toll could rise in the coming days, since more lifeless bodies are being discovered as the flooding waters recede.

He said that the province worst-hit was Zambezia, where so far 68 bodies have been recovered.

Abreu put the number of people affected by the floods at about 150,000.
