Malawi Hunger: Govt falls on its knees

59

The Malawi Government has said there is need for more humanitarian assistance towards people who have been affected by food shortage in the country.

In a statement released on April 28 and signed by Secretary to the Vice President and Commissioner for Disaster Management Affairs Ben Botolo, government says it needs support to avert the food crisis in the country.

Peter Mutharika: His govt has called for assistance.

“There is need for humanitarian relief support from the international donor community, the relevant United Nations agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations, the private sector as well as fellow citizens of goodwill to contribute towards alleviating the suffering of those affected by food shortage,” said Botolo.

He also assured the general public that all donations received will be channeled to the affected people in the affected districts.

Strong El Nino conditions that hit the country resulted in erratic rains and prolonged dry spells that led to severe crop failure, particularly in the southern region and parts of the Central and Northern Region.

On 12th April President Peter Mutharika declared Malawi a state of national disaster saying the dry spells and floods diminished hopes of a bumper harvest at the end of the 2015/2016 growing season.

  11. It’s just few months gone when Shepherd Bushiri was trying to help the affected souls and the same govt stopped him, yet now what is it that u r crying 4? The big problem is that u want every donation to go through ur stupid pockets so that u do ur magic. If it was ten bags the needy will get four bags.
