The Kasunga city in Malawi is famous for the tobacco production and is also regarded as the “tobacco capital” of the country. Tobacco farming is an important occupation of the Malawian farmers. During the month of May, June and July, tobacco farmers gather in Boma to sell their stock of tobacco. Tobacco is being widely sold during this time of the year and the farmers also spend a lot of money after earning them at this time of the year.
