This has however put extra pressure on Malawi government resources as some Malawians in Nsanje also require urgent assistance following floods that has hit the district in the past days.

The Mozambicans are at Phokera Community basechild  care centre, according to Nsanje Disaster Risk Management Desk Officer Martin Chiwanda.

The authorities say they expect the number of Mozambicans seeking refugee in the district to increase as the flooding  situation in Chiromo District is worsening.

Chiwanda has since disclosed that the Department of Disaster and Risk Management Affairs has started reaching out to the flood victims with various interventions in the district.

Vice President Everton  Everton Chimulirenji recently visited and cheered the flood victims in Chikwawa and Nsanje districts.
