Chaima is right. How much surface water and ground water do we waste? Plenty! How much lake water do we use? and for what? Only fishing chambo and bonya that you pay for as if it’s imported species from the moon? And sailing Mtendere and Illala twice to three times a year before they breakdown? The Greenbelt initiative was a great idea, but where is it in practice? Chaima is talking about policies, which is very true. But I just wonder if any proposed policy would be discussed in the media rather than in specific forum or through appropriate government… Read more »

Mr. Chaima, thank you for the words. However, let me inform you that the major source of water resources that we misuse or mismanage is the rainwater not the lake. If the country were to invest in multi-purpose dams seriously we would generally do away with the challenges you have observed.

Next time be specific on the policies to review otherwise you sound a novice in your own field.

We should also be thinking of simple technologies of harvesting water within our homesteads to support recharging the water tables. Generally, our houses are designed to throw water away through cemented drains, yet we need water everyday. Therefore, having boreholes is an immediate option with the understanding of water harvesting concepts and what trees to grow because some trees like eucalyptus draws large a mount of water- probably 5 litres a day!

Harvesting water is a stupid idea put forward by short sited people lazy enough to avoid responsibility. With smoke producing industries and dusty roads you end up harvesting dirty water.

In the last paragraph, the expert has rightly said that taps in Malawi have for the past three months run dry. I wonder why he said such words. Here in Mzimba, we have never had water problems and the taps have never ran dry. Does it mean that we are not part of Malawi because taps in Malawi have often ran dry? If you think southern region only is Malawi, then go to hell with your incompetent leaders. I hate you southerners with perfect hatred.

@#4 (Mtumbuka): wrong and unproductive line of thought, my man.
The problem of water supply, mailnly, is a national one in our country. And many solutions advanced are likely to help every part of the country, whether the specific area is currently experiencing water problems or not.

Big up mr Chaima, I agree with you ena amangothamangira ma demo, osabwera ndi mfundo zothandizira vuto lomwe lilipo.

Dziko lino likanakhala ndi anthu ngati inu
