Elderly couple die in house collapse

An elderly couple has been crashed to death to death in Dedza when the house they were living collapsed due to heavy rains on Friday.

Dedza police deputy spokesperson Cassim Manda has confirmed of the incident.

He has since identified the couple as Cadison Mbalange, 80 and his wife Nachilongo Jimmy, 75.

“The house fell on them due to the rains, the house was dilapidated,” he said.

This comes at a time when president Peter Mutharika is boasting that his malate and cement subsidy program of building decent houses to the elderly and the vulnerable is bearing fruits although reports say the program stalled some years ago due to lack of money.

The couple hailed from Mpalala village in chief Kaphuka’s area in Dedza.

Surely the kind of money stolen from government by individuals,business people ang the leadership its self is so huge that if government wanted to secure the elderly it would have done so without anyone feeling the monetary effect on the economy. But they prefer to compensate criminals leaving good honest people suffering.
