Ku Chawe

KuChawe Inn manager, Sylvester Mtambo, confirmed that the fire began around 1 am and could not say what caused it.

“So far I can say everything in the kitchen has been destroyed,” said Mtambo.

Nyasa Times learnt that fire fighters from the commercial capital in Blantyre were ones that assisted in putting out the fire after the Zomba fire brigade failed to do so.

Zomba City Fire Officer, Rogers Chiendausiku, admitted his team failing saying most of their equipment could not function.

“Our fire vehicles developed faults, and so we had to invite our colleagues from Blantyre,” said Chiendausiku.

Very sorry. That’s an asset for Malawi and our pride. If not already happening, let’s orient staff to firefighting and fire drills.

The fire engine had to come from Blantyre. The one in the City of Zomba doesnt work. Yet the DPP government is more interested in promising useless stadiums.

When did they realised that the fire engine was not functioning? This a must have for the Zomba City and nor Firtuna’s for the mayor and CEO
