Rains back with bad news.

According to Utumbe, the villages that have been hit hard include Kalumbu, Kailedzi, and Nyamula.

“The hailstorm started at exactly 2 pm which brought down roofs of several houses in the three villages,” said Utumbe.

Meanwhile, the chairperson has appealed for urgent assistance to the victims as the situation is very pathetic.

When contacted to comment on the situation, District Civil Protection Officer for Nsanje Humphreys Magalasi said his office is on the ground assessing the extent of the damage. Currently, the victims are in dire need of food and shelter.

During the rainy season, Nsanje usually receives heavy rains which sometimes leads to floods and displacement of people.
