Biography of Paul Mwenelupembe
My original name is Paul Mwenelupembe, I come from a very small village called Muyeleka at Ngara in Karonga district. I was born in a family of seven children and am the first born. I have moved in many schools, I have an O' level Certificate, and a Diploma in Land Administration, obtain at Natural Resources College(University of Agriculture and Natural Resources) , Malawi.
I started writing when I was just a little boy, but this art was agalaveted after I hard written my O' level(Malawi school certificate of Education) at Mvera Army Community Secondary School. The reason is I started teaching on part time basis at Combat Support Battalion, Mvera. My teachings were not limited by any class, I had to teach all classes starting from Form 1 to Form 4; and standard 1 to stardard 8. My favourite subject was Mathematics in teaching other than literature.
So I came across a certain standard three simple poem. That was the beginning of my full time writing in the year 2004. I also write short stories, in short Iam fully vested in Literal work. Besides, Iam a member of Malawi Writers Union.
Currently Iam working as a surveyor in the ministry of lands housing and urban development, under the department of surveys, based in Lilongwe, capital city.
I really enjoy my work besides my art.

The Desperate Woman
She stands there, dripping saliva
She is sick and going wirry
She reampts slowly like a tortoise
Leading down to the loo
And back into the thatched house
She was, and has anew born
On the mat, striped palm leaves mat
But why is she
