Activist applauds Chakwera’s timely declaration of state of disaster

Governance and human rights expert, Undule Mwakasungula says President Dr  Lazarus Chakwera’s declaration of a state of disaster reflects a proactive move by the government.

In response to the escalating challenges posed by El Nino weather patterns, President Chakwera on Saturday declared a state of disaster in 23 out of the country’s 28 districts.

In a statement, Mwakasungula described the action as an indication of the administration’s commitment to prioritising the well-being of Malawians while addressing the increasing impacts of natural disasters.

“Firstly, this serves as a key step in mobilising resources and assistance to mitigate the adverse effects of El Niño,” Mwakasungula said in a statement.

According to the governance expert, by formally acknowledging the severity of the situation, the government could leverage both domestic and international support to provide immediate relief and long-term resilience-building measures for affected communities.

Mwakasungula has since called for unity among all political leaders.
