Speaking to the local press on condition of anonymity, residents from Lapi village disclosed that their chief demands K5000 so that they can be registered for humanitarian support programs.

The residents further disclosed that they failed to raise the money to be paid to the chief, a development that has seen them not appearing on the list of beneficiaries.

Meanwhile Senior Chief Malemia of the district has assured that he is to investigate the matter and take necessary action on chiefs involved in the malpractice.

Nsanje is one of the districts that were greatly affected with drought this year following El-Nino winds. The district was also hit with floods in January 2015.

Malawi government and World Food Program (WFP) have since rolled out humanitarian programs to help the starving population in the district.

Residents are to get a 50 kilograms bag of maize per family each month for 9 months in order to ensure food security.
