Desk Officer for Disaster Risk Management for M’mbelwa District Council, Thomas Munthali, said about 33 houses in Mabiri, and 20 houses in Ehehleni and Mapanjira have been affected.

“We got reports in the morning from councilors coming from the said areas about the tragedy. We are working to conduct an assessment to come up with the exact figures on the ground,” said Munthali.

Munthali, who is also the local council’s Director of Administration, said his office has also reported the matter to the Department of Disaster Risk Management Affairs for assistance.

“However, we got a positive response such that plastic sheets, plates, maize and pails, are already on the way to assist the affected people,” said the district council official in an interview with Malawi News Agency.

    The North has more poverty than the rest of the country. That is why it was called the dead North.
    However, the photographer has chosen the poorest house to dramatize the effect.

    You call that a house.

    Omwe akulimbana ndi programme ya subsidized malata and cement ndi omwe kwawo kuli nyumba zomvetsa chisoni ngati iri pachithunzipo. If you compare Dowa and Chiradzulu you will see the difference. Ku CZ it’s like all the houses are roofed with corrugated iron sheets and Dowa is the opposite. Koma ambiri a MCP akufuna programme ithe, what poor politics. Wake up and support the programme inorder to have as many people out of poverty!
