The build-up to London Olympic Games is gaining momentum withÂ the BBC Radio Scotland featuring Frank Chipasula in The Written Word programme, which is broadcasting poems from participating countries.
To capture the Malawi spirit ahead of the July event, the radio on Saturday recited the US-basedÂ former exileâ€™s The Rain Storm.
Read by Nyasa Gurus UK-based member Brave Mnyayi, the poem captures a stormy scene in which one visualises a trek up the Zomba Mountain.
The poem goes in part: Then the road/ Braving the rain/ Slithered between the mountains/Leaving us to marvel and to muse/Where the thin tarmac was leading us.
“The rain’s ability to cleanse is keenly felt in this poem for Malawi by Frank Chipasula,” said the BBC.
A continuation of ancient Greek tradition, the hyped Olympics games in London will run until August this year.
