Challenging Start

As we drove north to Mzuzu, it was clear that the maize crop was looking good. This, of course, is the staple foodstuff for the country and the government is predicting a 25% increase in yield. This will also help reduce inflation.

But… hasn’t really rained for a week and this unseasonal drought is a threat.

Since then, there has been the catastrophic flood in the South. While not directly impacting on the area where we work, there will be economic impact in about a year as basic foodstuff runs out.
