Fire destroys truck
Imagine sitting in an office and suddenly seeing people outside the window running for their dear lives shouting and screaming as if "a tsunami" is after them. When you go to check and see what has scared the "hell" out of the fleeing mob you notice a refuse truck on flames right near three filling stations.
All of a sudden a explosion sound rocks the area as the flames burn of the leaves of nearby trees just like in a movie. There is panic and fear on the faces of many in nearby buildings in Limbe thinking the fire will cause a major explosion and tragedy with petrol/diesal filling stations nearby.
The refuse truck is reduced to rubble as the high flames conqueror while excited vendors scream "the spirits are angry" while running up and down, now brave to get near the pile of ashes.
Smoke is in the air as firefighters still fight off remaining flames inside the truck with calm eventually conqueroring when the main fire is put out.
Tracing footsteps to lead me home
Greetings from the Warm Heart Africa, Malawi.
I'm a Malawian journalist who grew up in many countries including South Africa, Belgium, then West Germany, UK, Washington DC and New York in the US and I love New York.
Trying to come up with the production of my life and by compiling some of my 1000 poems into a book called ‘Tracing Footsteps’ to lead me Home with excellent photography.
I also plan to film award winning documentaries based on the history of this ancient land called Malawi and the mysteries of the Sirius star.
