Village Head In Mulanje Fears Extended Lean Period
A Traditional leader in Mulanje has fears that the impact of Cyclone Freddy on agricultural production will result in extension of the lean period.
Village Headman Sonjeka of Traditional Authority Mabuka whose village was devastated by the disaster told Zodiak Online that all the crops have been washed away by the floods.
He said this when the Development Aid from People to People (DAPP) distributed cloths to 244 households at Mpala camp.
“Our crops, houses and other valuable property were washed away leaving us destitute,” said VH Sonjeka.
DAPP Project Coordinator Preston Yohane said they have targeted 2000 CycloneFreddy displaced households in the three districts of Chiradzulu, Mulanje and Phalombe.
"We have also targeted 24 officers at Muloza Police Post who lost their property during the disaster," said Yohane.
He has valued the whole support at K20 million.
