Songwe Boarder Fire

Razed down.

Operations have been halted at Songwe boarder in Karonga after a Malawi Revenue Authority warehouse at the boarder Post got consumed by fire in the early hours of today.

Witnesses say that the fire began around 8:am and it is the locals who helped officials at the facility to put out the fire, before fire fighters from Chilumba Barracks came all the way to help.

At the moment, the cause of the fire is not known but some insiders say that they fear the fire was started after the blackout that was at the facility from the night of Thursday, something which Malawi24 has not independently verified.

It is feared that Millions worthy of property has been lost but MRA officials are yet to give full details about the fire and projections of how much money has been lost.

Goverment depend on MRA wen it comes to collecting the money wch means MRA has got money so my question is!! a MRA bwanji sakugula zozimitsira moto lets say zimagalimoto zija za fire? bcz each and every warehouse of MRA cud have tht vehicle bcz u keep peoples goods woti agula kunja awononga ndalama zambiri, so anthuwo mutani nawo amene katundu wawo waphya ndi moto?

  4. Why can’t we recognize the importance of fire prevention officer’s and technologies in companies and organisations. We are tied of preventable fire’s which can be stopped before they destroy property. All this proves lack of fire preparedness procedures in organisations ….Please wake up Managers.

  5. i have been hearing the cases of fire accident, since DPP started ruling this country . what exactly happen to this country when you ask what caused fire to reach to that extent of destroying this stuff, they always say it is not known.
