Since President Peter Mutharika assigned officials from the ministry of home affairs and internal security to relocate the Dzaleka Camp in Dowa district to Katili in Karonga, there has been little progress on the ground.

This is said to be mainly due to resistance by residents in the northern region district.

Senior traditional leaders from Mlare and Ngerenge, under the royal family of Paramount Chief Kyungu seem to have reversed their decision on the project government is preparing to implement in their district.

Accompanied by special advisor for Paramount Chief Kyungu, Mpeta Mwakasungula and over 30 village headmen conducted a press conference recently, to find out why government why government chose Karonga as the district of relocation for the refugees.

"We would like the ministry of home affairs to make it clear on why Capital Hill should implement the project in Karonga, out of 27 other districts?” Mwakasungula asked.

According to the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), almost 27,000 refugees are expected to move from Dzaleka to Katili.

This is expected to be after the construction of such as schools, potable water points and a road from Karonga boma to Katili.

According to the UNHCR Malawi is the only country in Southern Africa that is currently hosting refugees near the capital city, and government would like to address the problem in order to ensure that the refugees are not a posing threat to the security of the country.

    This design is steller! You most certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.

    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Fantastic job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
