Many rivers to cross

The heavy rains that have been pouring for the past week have caused the two main rivers, Ruo and Thangadzi to burst and cause havoc to many people living in the area of T/A Mulolo in Nsanje District.
Nsanje District’s Assistant Disaster Risk Management Officer, Humphrey Magalasi said disaster management officers are failing to do the assessment of the damage caused by the floods because most roads have become impassable.
Nsanje District is one of the districts in Malawi that experience flooding almost every year. Efforts to move the people upland in the past have proved futile.
