Lost banana capital
There was drama in Limbe the other day when City officials in a cat and mouse chase with food vendors with goods along the dirty streets confiscated this bunch of bananas from a woman hiding behind a tree squashing them on the ground with their shoes.
The woman broke into tears saying she had lost capital and expected to buy "ndiwo" vegetables and dried fish for her evening meal with her son. Friends trying to calm her down also ended up crying. It is illegal to sell food in the streets but in produce markets, shops etc.
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 Sapitwa and the Sirius star.
