Monday mbalimbali: #MalawiFloods edition

19 January 2015

My new year’s resolution was to at least post weekly to haba na haba,* reviving the “mbalimbali”** posts — what others might call “miscellaneous” or “links I liked”.

This Monday’s edition focuses on the floods in Malawi, which began earlier this month and continue to wreak havoc, particularly in the southern part of the country.

* Clearly, as we are almost three weeks into the new year, I’m already failing at keeping this resolution.
** In Chichewa/Chinyanja, mbalimbali has a number of meanings/translations to English. In addition to meaning “around (the sides)“, it can also mean “various” (as could siyanasiyana).
