‘Give us condoms’ : Flood victims in Malawi tell government

371

Victims of the floods that occurred in Karonga district on Monday have asked the Malawi government and other stakeholders to give them condoms.

Karonga Floods

Flood victims in Karonga send the condom outcry.

The victims want condoms in order to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS since they expect a lot of sexual activity in the camps in which they are staying.

Apart from the condoms, the victims also need relief items like food, Chlorine, water guard and other related items.

The floods in Karonga occurred after the North Rukuru River burst its banks due to persistent rains that had fallen in the area of Paramount Chief Kyungu.

Authorities say to avoid the swelling of the North Rukuru River due to heavy rains in coming years, there is need to rehabilitate dykes and to conserve catchment areas of the river by planting trees along the river banks.

According to district officials, 4500 people from 900 households have been affected by the floods. The floods have also enormously affected crops along Rukuru River and authorities say 48 hectares of maize, banana, rice and cassava have been established to have been affected.

Zilizonse atumbuka. Atani atumbuka mukulimbana nawowo? Ikhale nyimbo poti apempha makondomu? Inuyo mwalakwitsa zinthu zingati?

  11. Ladies and gentlemen, you are now misled. What M24 has disclosed, it’s just a mere talk. It can’t happen guys. Above all, don’t take advantage of the situation to insult the Tumbukas. If you have a hatred with the Tumbukas, why can’t you just pose rather than talking like that. If it were you, what would have been your reactions. A tumbuka mulimbana nawowo, ali phee, inu mungotaya nthawi yanu kuchita comment zinthu zosadziwika ndi mutu wake.

  12. Kikikiki. …they are so stupid, hw can they ask 4 condoms instead of food & clothes! It shows that we are feeling sorry for nothing!

  13. A Malawi 24 pa fb pa ayesa posewelela sopano, awatu ndi masewelotu awa akuakulu, i ca’nt understand munthu akusowa chakudya ndiye azipempha makondom, azikhuta chigololo chomwecho. Plz tazikhalani serious akuluakulu.

  14. that total baseless issue. nobody in karonga has asked for condoms. we have two radio stations that reports issues of the victims and their needs. we have kachira, blm, macro, kdh, and many more organisations that i believe they are ready in stalk of condoms, and that the victims cant plead assist from the govt. am saying this becoz the places affected by the floods are not far from the main market, and also use the same market dairly. plz dont cheat people.

  15. Lemekeza condom, ndiye Mulungu wako wachinayi…Ku Karonga lemekezani macondom kuti masiku a miyoyo yanu achuluke..wina asakunyaseni apa….kunyoza wopempha condom ndi umbuli wa gee

  16. Kkkkk you pple are funny, asking for condoms what are you preparing for? Njala yoseyi osapempha chimanga bwa!! Chiwewe chavuta kkk. Bola tisaveso kuti kuliso ma homosexuals kumeneko.

  17. No wonder God put punishment in Karonga hence of your stupid thing how could you ask condoms instead of food and other things that can help you

    • Anthuwo azikumbuka za chisebwere m’malo molira katundu mukupempha makondomuwo? Kusowa podyera basi, akapezeka mankhwala matendawa mulira agalu inu

  18. Priority should be food,shelter and clothes then condoms should come fourth. You mean you can need a condom while spending days on empty stomarch,these people seem to go heywire.

  20. People criticise with facts,where people converge because of war,floods or any cramity they are some who may engage in prostition,and this is a fact with any tribe.For one to mention of protection (condoms) from Aids is being very wise.He is fearing of the unknown in such a stuation.Bravo to who so ever mentioned of condoms.

  21. Thupa Ray, anthu ena Malaw yemweyo, sakumudziwa kuti muli mitundu ingati ya wanthu? Nanga ziyankhulo zake, zili motani? Zonsezi, sakudziwa. Ndi magulu aja, a bola kwacha. Ndatsutsa uja amayankhula zoti aku Mzimba si atumbuka. Mzuzu, Mzimba and Rumphi, ndikumene kumapezeka angoni. Nkhatabay, Likoma, Chizumulo, nkwa atonga.

  22. Aa, iwe wabodza. Ukuti ku Mzimba ndi kwa angoni? What type of language do the ngoni from Mzimba and Mzuzu speak? And what type of language do the people of Karonga speak and what about Rumphi?

  23. It is sad that the poor cannot prioritise their basic needs. Ofcourse sex is a need but to prefer condoms over food is worst folly. However i believe they requested food and condoms because with a full stomach sex can be enjoyable

  24. koma inu atumbuka simudzamva ai azanu akudandaula njala mankhwala mzipatala ndizina zotele koma inu m,malo mopempha zinthu ngati zomwe ndatchulazo inu mukudandaula kufuna macondom zowona.

  26. Does it make sense to the reporter? I think the reporter asked for them as he will be there for some time monitoring the situation.

  30. Guys don’t play holy. They must have asked for so many things but these medias often write things they know will attract people’s attention. Especially malawi24 is good at that and if you don’t know them better don’t comment. This might as well just have come from one source but they have generally reported as if it is from all tumbukas in question. Learn how these guys make their reports and you will never be surprised what they are made of

  31. Mavuto magwere gadaff, Ndiwe mwana wahule osaziwa mtundu wa abambo ako anagona ndi amuna ambiri mbiri tsiku limodzi ndipomwe anayima mimba yaiwe ndiye ndipovuta kuti uziwe mtundu wako.

  32. In fact, the people of Karonga district aren’t the Tumbukas. The Tumbukas are hailing from Rumphi, Mzimba, Mzuzu. But due to great misconceptions we have towards tribes, we mix the Tumbukas and the nkhonde people from Karonga, as one thing so called the Tumbukas. If you want to know more about the Tumbukas, go to Mzuzu, Mzimba and Rumphi.

  33. Atumbukafe musamadabwe nafe chifukwa the only enjoyment we have know for a long time ndiye ndikuchindana. Palibepo nkhani apa tapepha macondom kuwopa kutenga mimba komanso matenda. Munthu ukaliralira umafuna kusangalala tisiyeni tizichindana

  34. Mr Mayesero little Kachule, anthu simukuwamvetsetsa bwinobwino. Apatu, nkhani ndiyoti, bwanji sakanangopempha chimanga ndi zina zotero zoti ziwathandize, nanga si ndi ma flood victims?

Mmalo moti mupemphe zofunikira, inu mukukapempha condom, anthu pokukuwonani, kodi aziganiza kuti mutu wanu uli bwino?

  35. Houses are sinking there is likely to be malaria typhoid diahrrea and all diseases the fools are thinking of sex and more babies in that misery

  36. misinformed pipo ,someone passed by and gave awareness messages assuring residents dat condoms will protect u against unwanted troubles ,he or she never emphasized dat condoms will only protect them from unwanted preg as well as hiv virus ,so the dummies jus thought otherwise ,and so insist the government intervenes by showering every household with condoms as protection against floods lol

  37. Kumangodziwa kulalatatu ngati inu abwino..chosecho atangoti ma condom asoweletu malawi muno nomwemu mukunyozanu mutha kukhala # kufuna kuyambitsa mademo….dnt try to look holy when u r not

  39. Mmmmiiii, Malawi #24, nkhani isakule, ingonenani kuti: Anthu Omwe anakhunzidwa ndi ma #Floods Akufuna ma Condom”!! Basi, kma mukufna nkhani ikule za zhiiiii!!

  40. These people asking for condoms are all crazy. How can someone ask for condoms whilst the country is experiencing shortage of food? Ndiye kuti pali nzeru pamenepo? Kumangoganiza zomangogonana basi, osaganiza zaku tsogolo ayi?

  41. Hehe Guyz Kumalawi! Munthu Uli Pa Vuto Ukafunenso Condom Yachan? Zangosonyeza Kut Akukhuta Coz Kunena Zoona Chigololo Supanga Uli Ndi Njala Plus Mavuto Izi Zokha Ndie Zodabwisa! Ali Pa Mtendere Awa Njala Ndi Sex Ndi Pallarell !

  42. That is real drama instead of asking things suit to their problems as we know Flood victims can not asking condoms how can they take advantage of their problems ? Condoms to flood victims out of priority

  43. These people are not really asking for the condoms…..Coz they knw if they ask for the food…the government will delay….but coz it is the condoms you will see how quick they will supply☆

  44. Apart from the food, chlorine, water guard and other items, the water victims also need condoms.

    Osangofikila kuti anthu othawa madzi apempha ma condoms.

  45. This is so ridiculous…these victims they are not in real trouble…becoz if they are truly in trouble they would have not hav sex feelings at all…ithink they are joke crackers

  46. kkkk cant wet 2raf kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk north on fleek

  47. these people to me they make sense.it means the other side the government and some other organisaions has assisted them fully but now the condoms are missing.That is why they are asking for condoms so that they can be protected also and enjoy life like any other dudez

    • man you is oky and what these people are saying as well but the question is what image is portrayed there??sex is not need they can live without it. can’t they ask for iron shit or money to rehouse there dagger?? this is some how pointless and shameless

    • don’t pretend to be a child bra!we are all adults let us not lie,if someone will have sex unprotected ,he can build a house but he is HIV positive whose gonna sleep and use that house?so to me these people have got a point to share,but our problem is that we are thinking shallowly we need to change our mindset and start thinking deeply

  48. Koma zinazi mzosekesa ndithu anthu mulipacamp mungamasogoze za chiwerewere mmalo moti muzipemphera ambuye kumwamba kuti zikutherani bwanji? Mmmmh yaweh angoyang’ana ndipo apa palibe mzeru
