… Long live Lilongwe Chat!
I say this because the original, one-and-only Google Group has been shut down. It was apparently reported for illegal content recently and Google promptly suspended the group. Of course, that was never going to be the end of it. The administrators have set up a new Yahoo Group.
If you’re not a Yahoo user already, it’s a bit of a hassle to have to create a new login or link it to your Facebook or Google account. But it’s a relatively small price to pay to find that desperately needed BREAST PUMP.
In any case, don’t worry because Best of Lilongwe Chat is still up and running. No signing in required 🙂
I’m especially looking forward to another SIGNS OF CLIMATE CHANGE weather forecast for January!
The wrath of Google
You’ve not truly settled into life in Malawi until you’ve joined 2 social media groups: Lilongwe Chat and Malawi Breaking News and Gossip.
LL Chat is a Google Group where people post for all types of things. From lost cat to vehicles or chickens for sale. It’s like the Craigslist or Gumtree of Lilongwe. Coincidentally, there is also a group for Blantyre, called Blantyre Chat, funnily enough!
Malawi Breaking News and Gossip is a Facebook page. The more observant readers will notice that the URL for this page is actually …/MalawiBreakingNewsAndSports. Presumably Malawi sport wasn’t as interesting or popular as Malawi gossip! MBNG is really beyond words to describe in my limited vocabulary. Its posts range from marriage or affair notice to sweeping political opinions.
Which brings me to the Best of Lilongwe Chat. Very simply, it’s a blog showcasing the highlights of both these groups! Check it out. Submit your favourites. You will not be disappointed!
