Hie, My name is Nqobani Ndlovu. I am a journalist based in Zimbabwe. I just joined this discussion fora.

Hello Busi,

My name is Norman Fulatira a former reporter of a privately owned radio station in Malawi called Zodiak Broadcasting Station. I am now a Freelancer and contribute to a number of news outlets including Barzawire.

With regard to the question at hand, I would take the following with me:

  1. My cellphone - for communication up until the battery lasts. The phone may also be used for taking pictures and listening to the radio updates on the situation.

  2. Small pack of groundnuts in my pocket - this could help me eat whilst running away from the flash floods.

  3. Bed sheet - at least a bed sheet so that I can use in case the flooding prolongs and we will be kept in makeshift shelters.
