Lake Malawi

Two men drowned in Lake Malawi on Sunday after they jumped into deep waters on the lake, Police say.

Salima Police Public Relations Officer Gift Chitowe has identified the two as George Nselema, 21, who was waiting to begin studies at The Polytechnic and 31 year-old Maxwell Kaliati, a Limbe Leaf Tobbacco worker.

According to police, the two left Lilongwe on Sunday and went to Lake Malawi in Salima.

“Upon arrival in Salima they went straight to Baobab Lodge at Senga Bay where they hired a private boat from one of the villagers,” Chitowe said.

Lake Malawi swallowed two men.

After getting the boat the two began sailing and when they went into deep water, they jumped into the water without apparent reason. However, they failed to swim to the shore hence they drowned.

According to Chitowe, people in the area managed to find the remains of late George Nselema while search is still going on in order to find Kaliati.

Meanwhile, Police in Salima are appealing to the general public not to go into the lake while drunk to avoid such incidences.

Late George Nselema lived in Lilongwe while Maxwell Kaliati hailed from Kuntaja village, Traditional Authority Kuntaja in Blantyre but was residing in Lilongwe.

    We as Malawians, we ask President Peter Mutharika to send on force leave the seven cashgate concerned cabinet ministers. Recently Malawi Electoral Commission has suspended its top bosses to pave way for justice and this must apply to civil service and cabinet ministers or else Mutharika must resign as well.

    On 29th August 2016, George Chaponda minister of Agriculture and Irrigation was chased and stoned in Mulanje by angry citizens. People started Stoning him and the function was disrupted and Chaponda had to run into his vehicle to save his dear life. People of Mulanje have rejected their own son in his homeland as they consider him to be a betrayer and a cashgate thief. Let us learn hold hands and learn from our brothers and sisters in Mulanje for unity and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    These people are political thugs, they are politically corrupt to finish every little resource Malawi ever had.

    Political corruption is the use of powers by government officials for illegitimate private gain. This corruption include bribery, extortion, nepotism, influence of murder, robbery of public funds etc. This government of DPP facilitate criminal enterprise such as drug trafficking, money laundering, and misuse of government power for other purposes, such as repression of political opponents and general police brutality.

    Above all DPP and Mutharika are influencing bad politics, threat to elections process e.g (Mchinji elections undermined), bribing MPs to pass bills, bribing Judges and authorities in defending them over corruption (Cashgate), favouring them e,g(20 May 2014 Elections), diverting funds for food, health, development and delaying salaries for civil servants.

    In politics, corruption undermines democracy and good governance . Corruption in elections and in the legislature reduces accountability and distorts representation in policy making; corruption in the judiciary compromises the rule of law; and corruption in public administration results in the inefficient provision of services
