July, the month that was then


By Professor Rasha Maga-Phiri

The month of July pours good memories of the Malawi’s founder regime. The month comes soon after bumper harvests that the Malawi leader who had passion for the welfare of his people had inspected sometime in February.

Happy faces could be seen willingly dancing including the famous ‘Mbumba’.. Nobody would stop them showing excitement for the reasons were very clear end louder.

“Good economy and good bumper harvest could give every person a happy face to wear and this reason good enough to remember Dr. Hastings Kamuzu Banda and the good old days.

“This is the man who led Malawians to independence, and invited all the Malawians to unite and indeed made sure that every year he invites the nation to the regional stadiums,” said Nachisale, a Dwangwa resident.

She said that the celebrations spoke louder on their in what situations the Malawians were in, that time.

And a social commentator Rafik Hajat said he sees no reason Malawians hold the same when half of the population will be sleeping in an empty stomach if they fail to catch rats and grasshoppers.

However UP president professor Chisi is failing to understand the cancelations of this cerebrations upon seeing the state President visiting each and every trading centers in the north just last month to independence day. He is suggests that he would have saved that people’s taxes money for this national event.

Another commentator asked the president to bail out the people of Zomba whom he visited last week for the epidemic that has befallen them in Chilema.

“Whilst we are crying to the good Lord to heal our economy and assist us in hunger another blow has fallen at Malosa Nursing College which has since been closed to the unknown epidemic which looks like malaria or typhoid fever, but Zomba DHO is still investigating.

“The president should fund the DHO and the Mission hospital at MAlosa to do what tey can on this otherwise the roads that he is inspecting would be meaningless if we allow the probable road users to die without our intervention,” said a Zomba based political commentator, who chose not to be named.

St Luke’s college of nursing Principal Maxwell Pangani confirmed of the development on Monday, adding that the disease has also been reported from two primary schools in the district.

Pangani said the affected students show a sign of Malaria signs but when tested the results are negative.

“Management has closed down the school to control the spread of the disease to other students,” he said.
