Muslims in Malawi pray for good rains.

Paramount Chief Kawinga has called upon Malawians to surrender the problem of dry spell to Allah rather than using traditional rituals.

The chief said this on Thursday at Nanyumbu headquarters during special prayers which were organized to seek Allah’s intervention on the prolonged dry spell which has affected many parts of the country.

He said Machinga has also been affected by scarcity of rain hence organizing the prayers.

“The problem can be solved by collectively asking Allah to forgive and have mercy on Paramount chief Kawinga added

He then advised people of other denominations to emulate what Muslims have done.

The prayers have been held a week after the state president called upon Malawians to pray for the rains.

Meanwhile Ministry of Agriculture says approximately 215,000 hectares and 618,000 households have been affected by the dry spell.

Ministry’s Public Relations Officer, Osborne Tsoka said 270,000 hectares and 720 000 farming families have been affected by fall army worms in some districts.
