In Malawi, 23 people were killed in floods caused by incessant downpours across the country.
In a statement, Homeland Security Ministry today said that 11 people were also missing with around 110,000 affected in the floods. Twelve districts, all in the south of the country, had been blighted by the deluges.
The rains also hit transport links with two major bridges submerged, cutting off access to Malawi’s second largest city Blantyre. Malawi defence force and police search and rescue teams were working in collaboration with the Malawi Red Cross.
