President Peter Mutharika of Malawi is urged by the Parliamentary Committee on Agriculture to officially declare a state of emergency as the food crisis hits the country.

According to the committees chairperson Felix Jumbe, Malawi will face severe food shortages and must immediately call for International help. Food is already scarce and hard to come by in Mangochi, Machinga and Salima. Children and senior citizens will be most affected and the government must do something now!

“The only quick solution to the problem is for the government to confess that things are not good in the country and that we require assistance from different organisations and nations.”

Just last year, Malawi was declared a disaster zone following floods that killed over 200 people and left thousands homeless.
