Farmers blame climate change

Some farmers in most parts of Balaka have cried foul over the sudden change of climate in the district. One of the farmers, Eyes Dilli expressed his sadness when Get Up Stand Up Project Coordinator, Henry Goster visited his maize field which is in Nankhombe Village.  Dilli 64, said that although he has replanted five times in his maize field this year due to erratic rains, he is very worried that this year he will not harvest as he expected.

“Although I go to work, I depend on farming since I have a big family to look after but because of the change of weather, it seems we will have low yields this year,” said Dilli.

The Project Coordinator said that now that rain has started coming again, there is hope that some farmers may get something out of their fields.

During the visit, the Coordinator also inspected Dilli’s cotton field. Dill belongs to the Andiamo group.

In the Dilli’s family, there are  thirteen members. These include grandchildren. He works as a Chief guard at Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust.
