Chief Refuses to Vacate Flood Prone Areas
NSANJE: Group Village Hadman Sambani of Traditional Authority Mlomo in Nsanje has declined to sign an agreement to have his people relocate from floods prone areas.
However, all other traditional leaders livening in such area have put pen to paper to allow their subjects move upland.
Ironically, Group Village Hadman Sambani’s area was among the heavily affected by recent flooding.
“I cannot sign the document to have people relocate because in the first place as far as we are concerned we are not in the prone area,” said Group Village Headman Sambani.
However, Assistant Disaster Risk Management officer for Nsanje Mr. Humphrey Magalasi has confirmed that the area of GVH Sambani lies in flood prone area.—Zodiak Online
