Shire Valley floods on camera

Malawi Vice-President Khumbo Kachali was scheduled to visit flood survivors in Nsanje on Thursday but he cancelled the trip at the eleventh hour due to deteriorating road condition.

Meanwhile, households surrounding Traditional Authority (T/A) Mlolo headquarters in the district entered the second day in the middle of floods emanating from an overflow of Thangadzi River. According to Nsanje District disaster management official Humphreys Magalasi, this is not just an annual humanitarian crisis but also a human face of how massive soil erosion in deforested uplands of Thyolo are silting rivers in the flood-prone districts of Chikhwawa and Nsanje. JAMES CHAVULA captured these pictures on Wednesday.
