Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president and leader of the opposition Lazarous Chakwera visited  affected people in Kauma Township in Lilongwe  after a ferocious storm wreaked havoc and affected some 1 100 families during a downpour soon after midnight on Friday.

Chakwera also comforted the family that lost a 10-year-old girl Shakila Banda through electrocution by a wire that was exposed during a storm. The girl was running toward safe shelter after her family’s home was damaged.

A man was also killed when a wall fell on him.

The MCP president said he was “deeply touched” with the death of Standard Five pupil Shakila and the havoc that the storm has caused in the area.

And former minister Ken Kandodo on Monday donated various relief items to the affected people at Kauma.

Speaking during the handover ceremony, Kandodo said: “I live near Kauma  in Area 43. Kauma people are my neighbours and I had to render support to my neighbours.”

Some of the items which Kandodo donated included; cooking oil, maize, maize flour, plastic buckets, blankets, and relish.

Member of Parliament for the area David Bisnowaty commended Kandodo for the assistance.

“I hope more people will come to assist in order to lessen the suffering of the people here,”

Malawi’s Vice President Saulos Chilima on Sunday visited some of the hundreds of displaced families.

Chilima who was accompanied by his wife, Mary, and Lilongwe City Council mayor, councillor Willy Chapondera, said government would send assistance and has appealed for international aid, especially shelter and food.

Department of disaster were also distributed plastic sheets but there was chaos as people were scrambling for the relief items.

Malawi’s Meteorology Department said climate change had brought on extreme weather patterns.

Two bodies, including that of an infant, were found floating in the river near the commercial capital Blantyre, police said.

Police said they were still looking for the body of an elderly woman in the Shire River, Malawi’s largest river.

    Chakwera, Kandodo, Bisnowarty and all who joined hands to bring our brothers and sisiters something to eat and sleep in or on. I hope all those going into those areas will emulate the gesture by going there with something in your hands, not like what the first team did by going there empty handed. Baba a Chakwera and your team God bless you all and reward you all

    MTIMA UMENE MWAONETSA APA BAMBO CHAKWERA NDI A KANDODO NDI UMENE TIKUFUNA A MALAWI. MCP TIYENI TIYENDE MMAPAZI ANGWAZI ENI ENI AJA. KEEP IT MCP

  11. Paul Macmillan says:

    Peoples Party should watch out its members who joined the party from MCP.
    These people have decided to go back to their old party.
    Rumours in the central region that George Zulu, Ken Kandodo Banda, Dr. Chris Daza and unidentified woman have been going around coaxing PP members to join MCP were very strong resulting to expulsion on George Zulu as Deputy Secretary General last year.

    If what PP Publicist said is true “cleansing time in PP” the party better do it quietly before those contemplating joining MCP do more damage to the party.
    Muzamva nkhwangwa ili pamutu.

  16. chatonda says:

    This is what we need from our leaders. Kandodo should have been MCP because that is where he belongs naturally. He is a good man but joined bad people. Thank s bwana Kandodo and MCP president for considering visiting and assisting the affected people.

    2. Wodala says:

      Why praise only Chakwela when others were even more generous? This no politicd. It is about people’s plight. It has nothing to do with MCP.
