Why is my blog called Chiperoni? And who’s hiding behind the nickname Nchenga?

Chiperoni is a kind of drizzle rain in the Shire Highlands.

Nchenga or mchenga means “sand” in Chichewa. Shortly before I set up my new blog, I heard a TV talk show in Blantyre, where people were complaining about bad TV reception. One lady called the show to say “All I can see is nchenga nchenga“. i.e. it means something like “blurry image”…

I’m an African blogger.

Proudly African.

i've got about 2000 similar snapshots....
