Sad.The Yiannakis are Malawians whose parents settled in Malawi Limbe a long time ago. The first bus stop from Limbe on the Highway was callef after their grandfather who operated a bakery in Limbe sold fresh fish while Trataris was baking bread in Blanryre at Ginnery corner in the sixties. May His Soul Rest in Peace.
