Covid keeps Vilipanganga Movement poetry sessions off

SEUNDA—We have to wait

Vilipanganga Poetry Movement, which made a fast drive with its poetry sessions attracting the attention of poetry lovers, is currently on a break due to Covid.

The movement’s chairperson Yankho Seunda said Monday that they would have loved to be running the sessions but they cannot due to the pandemic.

Seunda said the last time they had a poetry session was last year, when one of their members Rodwell Lumbe launched his album titled Mtsitsi.


“We had hoped that things would normalise by now but the situation is not good and so we have to wait. We know people have missed these sessions but we just have to wait and, once everything is okay, we will come back,” Seunda said.

Vilipanganga Poetry Movement holds its sessions every Wednesday at Kwa Haraba Art Gallery and Café in Blantyre.

Since its inception, the poetry sessions have given a platform to poets to showcase their talent.


“At the moment, we are just conducting writing sessions through a Whatsapp group we created. To the group, poets send their poems and then we perfect each other. Through this platform, we also share ideas,” Seunda said.
