Cos Chiwalo says life is back to normal
Veteran musician and former Alleluya Band leader, Cos Chiwalo, has said the team is happy to be home after end of its two-weeks quarantine period upon arrival from Italy.
Chiwalo and four other members including deputy band leader, Gertrude Naluso, spent 14 days at Kameza in Blantyre on quarantine.
“Our families welcomed us very well and things are back to normal. However, we also asked for another week here before friends and others start visiting us. It is just to give ourselves a breather,” Chiwalo said Monday.
He said their families knew they were back from Italy and that they were in Blantyre but did not know where the precise place of quarantined.
“I would like to say it again that let us all follow the necessary precautionary measures in the fight against coronavirus. To God be the glory for being with us and at the same time protecting us. I am also happy that there is no coronavirus in the country and I call on the government to continue sensitising people,” Chiwalo said.
Alleluya Band tours Italy every year where they hold performances in different cities aimed at raising funds for different projects at Andiamo in Balaka District.
However, this was a different project altogether as Chiwalo and the other four went for language training.
Naluso said relatives and friends were happy to see them although others heard different stories.
“A lot of stories came up and some of our relatives had the feeling that we were ill. So, we are happy to be back home and now able to live that normal life,” she said.
