Scenes of chaos graced the exercise as thousands couldn’t hold to the wait for their turn.

As the day slipped thousands continued to troop in and the selling point, at Migowi Trading Centre, was parked with people, asking for more.

Representative of Senior Chief Kaduya, who was on the scene, thanked South Africa-based Malawian prophet Shepherdfor considering Phalombe in his programme.

He called the exercise, ‘the great form of humanitarianism’.

In an interview with Nyasa Times, one of the beneficiaries Ruth Mlaviwa, thanked Prophet Bushiri for the gesture.

She said she has  five kids and she has been experiencing serious challenges to access the staple on the market because it was too expensive.

A 50 Kg bag is now fetching about K20 000 but Prophet Bushiri is selling it at K5000.

So far markets have been opened in Ntcheu, Mzimba, Mangochi and Salima. The next markets are expected to open in Balaka and Thyolo districts.

When government fails and someone based in the RSA intervenes. For sure Malawi is in a crisis.

Boma lolamula lalephera kudyetsa ma tax payers ake. Now they are turning to people of good will. Shamelessly they will soon come up with lies to have the starving people vote for them. Foolishly, the starving people will forget and cast a vote for these same thieves. I hope they will miss the boat this time around.
