Dear ladies and gentleman
Well, my name is Emmanuel Mavunga, born in Zimbabwe on 25 December in 1973. I am happily married to Mejury Mavunga and we are surviving with four boys and two girls who currently stay in South Africa.

In 2010 I established a road safety initiative which I registered under Zimbabwean law after I had realized the upsurge in the rate of road traffic crashes and increased human suffering on the roads due to non compliance of road traffic regulations, negligent driving, and the use of dangerously defective vehicles. Coincidentally In 2011, on the 11th of May the United Nations launched the Decade of Action for road safety 2011-2020. It took me from 2010 to 2014 for me to receive approval from the Zimbabwean Ministry of Transport to trade in the sector of road safety and driver enhancement.

What then happened is in December 2014, I made an application to the Malawian High Commission in Zimbabwe through Mr. Francis Mponda who was swift to identify the need for such an initiative in Malawi, who then referred  me to the Traffic Safety Council of Malawi for further dialogue. Mr. Mponda took only three days to accept my idea and arrange a meeting with his Malawian counterparts. I salute him (Mr. Francis Mponda) for such active thinking.

My meeting in Malawi was fruitful, and I am scheduled to establish a life saving initiative in Malawi that will focus on educating all road users from pre-school children to the elders and persuade them to become conscious participants in road safety rather than waiting for Government alone to craft road safety solutions for them.  Road safety is a basic human right and also a basic life skill. 

I should have established in Malawi by now but there have been a number of financial set-backs on my part that have delayed the swift establishment of this life saving initiative. Roads as the backbone of communication have left many people crippled for life and the amount of grief that is experienced by losing a family member due to road traffic crashes is too much to bear. 

In brief that me and my mission to save lives. This is just a hint. I have a lot of work to do for the people of Malawi. Yes I am from Zimbabwe but the warm reception that I received from Mr. Francis Mponda at the High Commission has served as my firm foundation for my project.

Thanks to you all and I am happy to join the team.

Best, best, and very best regards

Hi there. I am not sure what position you will be able to secure because i am not yet in Malawi. I am actually planning on relocating from Zimbabwe to Malawi to embark on a life saving road safety mission. I wish i could furnish you with detailed info but sorry i have only been in Malawi for only one week but hey, I love the country. Its sooooo peaceful and remember where there is peace there are good chances of success.

Stay blessed and please feel free to keep in touch

Best regards


Thank you. I will call it ROSPIM which means Road Safety-plus Institute of Malawi. Sorry for the rather late response I had gone out for a feasibility study in a number of provinces in Zimbabwe. Thanks


My name is Grace Mkwapata, born Malawian and i have stayed here all my entire life. I am a student at the University of Malawi, The polytechnic and studying Journalism. I am new here, hope we all have a nice time together.

Thank you

Welcome aboard madam.

So how is education treating you so far. are you enjoying what you are studying?

Identifying problems and coming up with tailor made solutions is the way to go. thumbs up.

Hi there!

My name is Lawrence and was an expat in mostly Botswana (Gabs, Kaserne and the delta) Zim and Zambia and the Caprivi! As from that introduction one may be able to see that I travelled that area quiet extensively as a Hotel and Lodge manager!

I moved back to South Africa, Johannesburg and opened a very successful pub in four ways, initially four expats but it outgrew that category and eventually became a free for all! Lol!
I sold the pub, bought a very quaint restaurant in Mpumalanga where I managed to get myself divorced 
And ended up losing the restaurant!

With that mournfully morbid intro, I realised that my happiest times was whilst I was an expat and in the hospitality industry! Hence the desire to get back into it!

On my travels I found Malawi to be a beautiful country with a people that were very intelligent and wholesomely happy! Hence the interest and again desire to relocate there!

I have applied for rather a few positions and am waiting for responses, hopefully positive, but thought I would start to get involved, even in a minimal way with the expat community up there before I just "pitch up"!

Hie... am interested with the Idea.... am owning a school in malawi and am willing to take that initiative.



My name is Desiree Mwachande and I am a South African. My husband is a Malawian. We were going to make life happen in SA but Home Affairs upheld his papers and he had to return to Malawi in August. We have been separated since and now I want to join him in Malawi, I'm passionate about empowerment and would love to help communities empower themselves to recognise their potential and to restore confidence in the downcast.

I'm a teacher, an administrator and an entrepreneur. I don't have a job there as yet but I am coming on holiday on the 5th December and will be looking for a job. I will also be scouting new possibilities to establish my passion of community development.

My husband is from Lilongwe and I will be living in the city. Should I be blessed to find a job, I will not return to South Africa for a couple of years.

It will be amazing to meet other expats.
