HEAVY RAINFALL IN MALAWI

HEAVY RAINFALL IN MALAWI

The month of February has been painful to bear to some people living in some parts of Malawi. February is regarded as a difficult month already as it is the time that many people experience challenges in terms of finances. Coming from the celebrations of Christmas and New Year, people struggle to be feeding their families with many bills at their disposal. It is already farming season, hence farm inputs have to be purchased. In addition, schools are also opening and there’s need to take care for the school fees of the children. The demands of living become too much to bear with as the salaries of many citizens appear to be low.

 

Unfortunately, when we started this year, we were confronted with cholera outbreak which has claimed many lives already and still does. Just shortly after, heavy rains caused damage in most parts of Malawi. Some areas have experienced hailstorms and floods which have damaged some houses and crops. For example, in Kasungu (in the Central Region) some tobacco and maize fields have been destroyed. Two people died in Mzimba, the Northern Region of Malawi, when they were washed away by running water around Enukweni river. Some houses got submerged in Machinjiri – Blantyre, the Southern Region of Malawi, and ended sweeping away part of Machinjiri road making it impassable to reach the township of Limbe.
