On Wednesday, Zambia officially handed over a donation of US$ 20,000; 300 tents; and 5000 blankets.

Principal Secretary for Disaster Management Paul Chiunguzeni thanked Zambia for the gesture, saying it was timely.

“You have shown true spirit of being a good neighbour.  The assistance of tents is timely because it will help us free the schools that are being used as camps so that learning doesn’t get affected for long,” he said.

In his remarks, Anderson  Banda of Zambia’s Disaster Management said acting President Guy Scott intrustructed them to make the donation.

He said Malawi shares a lot with Zambia and it was proper that they made such a donation.

Torrential rains have wreaked havoc across Malawi, which has reported at least 200 deaths and many more missing, with 200,000 displaced.

    Zambia really cares about Malawi but I’m sure some minister is crying for that $20000 right now. Ba Zambia it should also be easy to remove that $20000 when a building is needed to be reconstructed

    Bongololo, you only need an extraordinary thinking to act extraordinarily. It can never happen today. It is a process that can take more than five years. In fact, every African country has its own problems and Zambia is not exceptional.

  14. Kanonono says:

    We have always said that Malawi and Zambia deserve to unite and form one nation. There is no reason of having two different countries that are both full of Phiris, Bandas, Kaundas Msowoyas, Chewas, Tongas, Kwachas etc. You only need two leaders (as opposed to rulers) who will be able and willing to sacrifice the sovereignty of the countries for the general good of one united and strong state. Julius Nyerere and Abeid Karume did it and to-date, Tanzania (Tanganyika and Zanzibar) is a united and very strong nation.

    1. Bongololo says:

      I don’t think Zambia wants any part of the problems in Malawi. Own your problems Malawians and deal with them as a sovereign nation.

  15. o says:

    Thanks Zed. All the best to the whoever wins your elections.

  21. Hebrews says:

    Bravo Zambia! I think some people should learn to really know that the biggest rule in the Bible is ” LOVE THY NEIBOUR” You have helped Malawi before and during the demise of Late Bingu wa Mutharika. May God bless Zambia!

    Zambia has helped Malawi since time immemorial, when will Malawi help Zambia, no fat chance, Malawi is too poor to stand up, the country is suffering from mulnutrition and lack of leadership. Robbers paradise it is
