Country’s Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima this afternoon visited victims of Mzuzu heavy down pour which occurred few days ago.
In his remarks, Chilima assured the victims that His Excellency Prof. Peter Mutharika’s govt is in control and all those affected will be assisted accordingly.
He however, took a swipe at some authorities for sleeping on the job and not doing enough to avert disasters. He instructed Escom to liaise with the council and cut down all ageing trees along electricity poles.
At Kaning’ina one large tree fell on a house completely dwarfing it down but luckily there was no one at that time. He also urged the council to relocate those that have settled in swampy areas .
