  1. Whch part of Blantyre has been hint by floods? Osamatinamizapo apa kodi ife timakhala kuti? Kambani kuti nyumba zina zaonongeka cz of heavy storm. Storm & floods r 2different things..wagwan ć u?

    • Do you even know Blantyre? Those are pictures of Limbe just before pa hardware. Limbe is in Blantyre if you didn’t know. In case you are trying to get technical, a place is flooded when it is submerged in water and I dunno about your eyes but those cars are half way submerged.

  2. Chofunika ndikukhala wochenjera chifukwa ano ndimasiku omaliza. Komaso yesu ananeneratu zamasiku omaliza. Chonde zinazi ndi zizindikiro za masiku omaliza.

  3. This has also happened in Mzimba; The reality is that we are ignorant of who to involve to help us out. Stop fighting one another & let God’s intervetion eradicate such an overwhelming problem. Politics have got nothing to do with this! Be knowledgeable to avoid unnecessary perishing!(Hos 4:6; Isa 5:13)

  4. Amalawi tizasiya kupusa liti mwagundika kuphoda ma profile pic flag ya france manyazi mulibe?? Nanga ku france akuziwani inu aphude aliyense opeperanu mwafasa kupenta ma profile anu kumbwambwana mxiiiiieeeew

  5. some people are wondering what the limbe flooding has to do with dpp.Sukulu siitha. Pse read this with great understanding: The cause of the flooding has been established to be bad drainage. Every construction project is supposed to be inspected by gvt inspectors, and unless you tell me otherwise, we still have a dpp gvt. As simple as that.

  6. Force majoure (acts of God)no one can completely avoid it zimaonetsa ukulu wake wa Mulungu kupanda izi kuchitika we can easily forget HIM nyengo ndiyake anayikhazikitsa kale no suprise to HIM Jesus prophecy of last days osati iyayi mitengo kulibe,amanga kuphiri , just imagine first rains only more disaster its Elnino rainy year more is to come

  7. Deep concerned about the victims but not surprised, I invite you to come for exemplo to kanengo in area 28 and look at the drains, all are blocked with rubish and city council do nothing about it.
    Last year we had a lot of property damaged because of that and this year more can be expected … if no action.

  8. Blantyer is almost a plateau than the lower shire, why the floods? Change of times – People from lower shire should donate relief items to the victims in Blantyer as the bad weather is not predictable; Last year it biow off roofs of Lilongwe’s Area 49 Dubai area; Lets kneel down & pray for God to protect us during the rain season;

  9. hahahaha inu limbe mwaidziwa lelo chaka chilichonse pamenepo ikamagwa mvula pamatelo ndipo sipokhapo in limbe pali malo angapo,mmalo moti muudze anthu asamale chilengedwe mukukamba za ndale,mvula imaononga kumene MWABADWA LELO KODI?

  10. Well……….am after BCC, they, with their friends frm the police, were busy burning fuel all day everyday chasing pple doing illegal vending, all in the name of cleaning the city, well u forgot abt making the city safe. Poor drainage i hear is the cause of the floods?*
    GOD is with us

  14. Many places are being visited by earthquakes, fire as well as flood, so that we may see that GOD’s judgement is @ hand.. Chofunika ndikuchita chifuniro chake… Yehova akutichenjeza & kutilalikira kudzera mChilengedwe chake..

  19. Nkhani Ya Ngozi Za Madzi Sizikugwirizana Ndi Zandale.Kodi Mudzasiya Liti Uchitsiru Anthu Okokoloka Nzeru Inu. Apa Palinso Kugwirizana Kwanji Ndi Andale?
    Yehova Anakupatsani Udindo Wosamalira Chilengedwe Koma Mukukanika Kusamala Nokha Ndiye Ndizimenezo Anthu Akutaya Zinthu Zofunika Mpaka Miyoyo Yawo. Pokha Pokha Anthu Ayambenso Kuchita Monga Mwa Udindo Wawo Ngozi Zachonchi Sizidzatha Ayi.

  21. If not mistakeni, it was last week when we heard that Disaster what what Management was telling the nation that they are more than ready for floods or whatever. Just waiting to see them how they gonna help Bt and those in the Mzimba who affected by storm afew wks ago.

  23. Ku malawi kwagwa vula yambiri yaononga zithu mukuti we have sin against God, ku south Africa vula siku bwela misinje yauma mi popi madzi sakutuluka akutiso its punishment from God. Eeee munthu alibedi pabwino.

  24. Did we take advantage of the 12 months since the last devastating flooding to heal our soil, plant trees, build swales, mulch our fields, build water harvesting tanks, dig banana pits, construct check dams, and diversify into seasonal cropping systems which include both water-loving species as well as drought-tolerant ones? Or, did we continue to cut down our trees, burn the landscape, hoe up vegetation, and ignore our compacted, depleted, and sun-baked soil just waiting for the rains to monocrop another wall-to-wall crop of chemically-dependent maize? Humans have a moral responsibility to be good stewards of the earth. When we learn how to care for our Mother, we quickly discover that she takes care of all our needs.

  25. Thank you almity God that you have given malawians water to drink in other countries there total flames of heat wave which is bringing disgrace and fear of their lives.

  26. Ndikamati namalenga sakugwilizana ndi ulamuliro wa ulipowu ndye muziletsa yetu amatha kulanga ana chifukwa chamakolo ndinena ndinu munasakha zolakwika inu

  27. even south Africa many people are homeless because of storm let us pray for them and wish them well because tomorrow it will be us or one member of our family. when people are affected by natural disasiters dondt mock even laugh them moto umayaka kumene kwasala tchire Mulungu akukuona.

  29. Imagine here in Bangwe people constructing the houses mphiri,mitengo were all depleted therefore the runing waters are demolishing houses on their way,fences are falling down.Its indeed pathetic,Escom ndiye atiuza chiani kaya.

  30. what does this have to do with DPP is dpp your God does dpp controls the rains, i think the one who accusing mbendera must be very stupid #climate-change havent you heard about this term koma ndekuti mumakhala kumashamba kwenikwenitu mukadali muumbuli

  31. Komatu Odziwa zanyengo tilinao. Bt why??? this is to show that Gods Knowledge is mans he? Now I know. Malawi needs to humble urself b4 Almighty God. We hav sinned against God! We need to ask 4 forgivnes. Machimo afika kumapazi kwa Mlungu. Wakwiya. Tichitileni chifundo Yeheva.

  32. ‘Government is assuring Malawians that it is more than prepared to deal with El Nino effects’. Jeremiah Mphande, spokesperson for the Department of Disaster and Preparedness said in an interview (Nyasa Times November 12, 2015)

  34. Wait a minute… I find this reporting to be sensational. Heavy flooding…really? Let’s be careful how we report please. This one is a haven storm which has brought flash floods…, please please let’s inform people in the right way!!!!

    • Well, the trajectory of reporting then should state what is the state of affairs now; when it comes to the HEAVY FLOOD level, then the reporting should state so. I’m not seeing my statement changing really after the fact, it will have been so anyway. In any case, I think it was more significant to report about the devastating storm than the water flowing because of poor engineering in Limbe. The many houses that have had their roofs blown away, not washed away, should have been the center of the story. But I’m not a journalist anyway

    • Ndikukonzeko pang’ono galu iwe, unene kuti pepani bambo anga and then upitilize zakuthako zakozo, mwana opusa onyoza bambo ake iwe but the problem its not you but you fucken bitch-mum thats a problem #fuckYou

Koma popeza agalu ndi agalu basi mukhala mukuimbira m’manja agalu omwe akukulamuliraniwa mpakana mudzafa. Zitsiru
