Cyclone Chalane is dead, threat to Malawi is over

Weather experts say the destructive Cyclone Chalane is dead. This means its threat to Malawi is over.

Nkhokwe: Chalane is no more a threat to Malawi

According to Jolamu Nkhokwe, the director of Meteorogical Services and Climate Change, the cyclone has died down in Zimbabwe.

Earlier predictions showed that the Tropical Cyclone was set to hit the country in the past 3 days after landing in Mozambique on Wednesday.

There were fears of flooding in some parts of the country as the Cyclone would have brought heavy stormy rains for 7 days.

Disaster Management authorities already deployed search and rescue teams to flood prone areas in readiness for the weather hazard.

Nkhokwe has revealed that from Mozambique the Cyclone moved to Zimbabwe instead of Malawi.

According to Nkhokwe, the Chalane low pressure system has now moved to Botswana, implying that Chalane is no more a threat to Malawi.

He however states that ex-Chalane low pressure systems continue to strengthen the Inter Tropical Convergence Zone and Congo air mass over southern Africa thereby enhancing rainfall that can cause flooding in Malawi.

Our poor experts, when will we be able to trust you? Always telling us lies. Are your equipments loaded with latest technology or you are using our village oracles (maula)?

Emmanuel means God is With Us.

Do we have weather forecast experts in Malawi? If you are failing to give us accurate information on simple things, can we really make big things like cars, computers, etc? People are saying that they do not want a covid-19 vaccine, can we make one here in Malawi or Africa if we cannot accurately predict weather?

Mr. Nkhokwe a president statement alone is not enough. You need to organise a press briefing so journalists can ask questions and get answers on behalf of ordinary Malawian. Cyclone is very serious matter and it can’t just end up with a mere statement. People took your word very serious;y and they have to continue doing so, otherwise they will lose trust and their defiance will cause loss of lives and property next time you come up with a similar warning.
