D.D. Phiri: “We Malawians are lucky to have overseas friends who are writing about Malawi and its people. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Society of Malawi and its latest journal has just come out. From the editor’s note we learn that sister journals which used to exist in Kenya, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe have long ceased to exist. Malawi’s is still active. Malawians have a lot to emulate and thank those who have shown much affection for this country all over the years. Much valuable knowledge about the nation that was getting forgotten is being preserved through the journal.(…)
“Fellow Malawians, here is a magazine with the stuff to chew and swallow. Buy the journal or join the Society of Malawi. Know yourself though its magazines and lectures.”
