Rumphi, February 19: A stitch in time saves nine, the saying goes. The main road that connects Rumphi to the rest of Malawi from Bwengu Turnoff has poor drainage system in that some culverts have been blocked and damaged due to siltation as result of heavy rains in the area. The picture shows a damaged culvert which if not maintained soon, the road may be cut by heavy rains that usually fall in March in the area and other parts of northern region. Rumphi is among the districts government declared as disaster areas in the country.
