Liemba serves as a lifeline for Burundians

The MV Liemba is once again serving as a lifeline for people fleeing violence. The United Nations has recently commissioned the vessel to help rescue refugees from the unrest in Burundi and ferry them to Tanzania. It is indeed amazing that this former warship is now serving this purpose one hundred years after her launch. But while it is truly a heroic mission, it does leave thousands of others stranded with out the ship that they depend on for so much.

The bottom line is, Lake Tanganyika needs another large vessel in order to satisfy the needs of the people living there. Preferably one from this millennium.

It is with great sadness that we share the news of Chiwoniso Maraire’s death on Wednesday in Zimbabwe. Chi, Liemba’s narrator, was a rising star in Zimbabwe’s music scene. Her songs, playing and spirit were inspirational, powerful & beautiful. In the film, she captured the ship’s personality and brought its story to life with her one of a kind vocal talents.  We were enormously lucky to have had the opportunity to work with her. We will miss her and send our sincere condolences to her family and friends.
