The Durban Port manager Moshe Motlohi told Reuters it was still too early to assess the extent or costs of damages to sub-Saharan Africa's largest port, which is a key transit point for commodities such as maize. TNPA has also managed to contain containers that had blown into the bay.

'Ukhozi is one of nine new tugs being built for TNPA, but the first of two that will serve at our port alongside some of our older marine vessels.

This comes after severe storms in Durban wreaked havoc at the port, unberthing ships and blowing containers into the water on Tuesday. "We will continue to monitor the situation closely via Port Control and the Harbour Masters' offices, and will keep stakeholders updated".
