GVH Chambuluka: Moving to upper lands

According to Group village headman Chambuluka, who witnessed over 50 percent of his village affected by the floods, said for the whole of last week he has been allocating new lands in a hilly area known as Gungani.

“This is the first time floods have attacked as in 20 years, and we are taking no chances but to move upper lands. We will instead turn this flood prone area into farms,” said the 50 year old chief, real name Loya Nasho.

He explained, out of the 95 households his village had, about 50 families have lost their homes to the floods.

The chief attributed the disaster to the wanton plundering of forests in his area.

“The only challenge will be a school for our children. We used to have Kamiyala Primary School but it is all gone. The wife to the head teacher of the school is one of those that have been killed by the floods,” said the traditional leader.

He added: “Am only appealing to the Agricultural authorities to quickly dispatch seeds and fertilizers for replant, otherwise these floods are a recipe for hunger this year.”
