Kadzinja said over 60 households wer eaffected translating into about 600 people.

“The government is doing its part but I would like to ask other well wishers to come in as quickly as possible. The situation is not good,” said Kadzinja.

He said apart from food and other relief items, there was need to stock Bangwe clinic with medical drugs as the facility does not have enough medicine in stock yet the rain victims need medical assistance.

Kadzinja, a clinician himself who runs Dalirani clinic in the township, said clinicians at the government run clinic do not have basic medicine and pleaded with well wishers both individuals and organisations to help the victims with the medicine.

The Monday rains caused havoc in Blantyre blowing off roofs of Bangwe Catholic Church building and Makhetha Health Centre building and the flooding of Limbe stream caused extensive damage as FDH Bank and some shops were forced to close for business on Tuesday.

Officials from Blantyre City Council and Blantyre District Council said Wednesday they were yet to cost the damage.
