Alinafe set to release a new collection of poetry

By Emmanuel Moyo

A Mzuzu based poet, Alinafe Kaweche, has announced that she is set to release another collection of poems dubbed ‘In the darkness’ this year.

In an interview, she disclosed that the project name follows a series of suicide cases registered last year amongst the youths in Malawi.
“Last year, I observed that there was a rise in suicide cases amongst the youths in the country and this got me thinking so much that I decided to write about how they feel and I titled my project ‘in the darkness’,” she said.

Kaweche further said she has more plans about poetry as she expects to release more poems and more books.

When asked on how necessary the project is to the country, Kaweche said she hopes her project will reduce suicide cases.
“The contents of my project are craft in such a way that I hope and believe they will help youths learn to handle issues rightly and refrain from committing suicide,” she said.
Kaweche has been into poetry since her youthful stage.
