Suppose that a population, say the people of #Malawi, are afflicted by a variety of intestinal parasite due to their dependence on ground water.

Mabvuto said of the photo above: “This is me with reporters in the #newsroom. We were working on a story about the growing calls within the ruling party to push the current President to stand down." [1/2]

Today is #ChilembweDay in #Malawi, a day to honor one of the country's celebrated heroes.

John Chilembwe was a Baptist preacher who led a rebellion against colonial rule.
