It is Malawi's financial and trading center and, with an expected 1,068,681 residents, will be the second biggest metropolis from 2015[update]. Unlike the Malawian Lilongwe, the island's main town, it is sometimes described as Malawi's trade and industry capitol. This is the capitol of the southern region of the state and the Blantyre district.
The Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), the country's state-owned channel and operator of one of Malawi's TV stations, is based in Blantyre. Stadthaus, College of Medicine, Malawi Polytechnic and Kamuzu College of Nursing, constituting universities of the University of Malawi. This is also where the Malawi College of Accountancy is based.
Blantyre is in a rather unorthodox position with Mount Soche, Ndirande and Chiradzulu Mountain surrounding it, consolidating the Michiru Mountains Conservation Area. One of the oldest cities in eastern, mainland and south Africa, Blantyre dates from before Nairobi, Harare and Johannesburg and has the longest historical and culture legacy in the area.
Chichiri Museum is located next to the Chichiri Citizen Centre office and is a precious property of the town. The Blantyre Town Centre has a collection of eight historical landmarks, mostly historical structures. 6 ] The Municipal Assembly has designated two places for inclusion as protected landmarks and another 23 places for examination to determine their suitability for inclusion as protected landmarks.
The biggest trade and industry capitol in Malawi, Blantyre is located in the Shire Highlands and geographic center of the southern region of the nation, 35 degrees eastern of Greenwich Meridian and 15 degrees 42" southern of the equator. It is classed as a "National Downtown " within the country's six-level system of municipal centers and is the southern region's territorial administration seat.
There are two main kinds of stones from an old cellar complex, a product of a trial that took place in the later Precambrian era some 500 million years ago. Its largest formations consist of pyrroxene granular stone which occupies more than 50% of the urban area from the north-west to the west and stretches in two small ribbons south in the west of the town.
Syenite has a share of about 40% in the south, west and northeast corners of the town and also in the shape of dispersed small intrusion in the pyroxen granular stone cobbles. Situated on the east side of the east side of the East African Rift Valley, Blantyre creates some striking fault lines within and near the town, making it vulnerable to earthquake events.
Most of the defects and the associated areas of deep subsoil run from the northern part of the town in a south-western sense and are potentially groundwaters. The Blantyre Municipality is situated in a rolling area with a diverse landscape from about 780 to 1,612 m asl.
It has three principal topographic characteristics that have a great impact on the town' s development: the hill, the plain and crest, and the river's dewatering system. Its most striking and dominating feature are the large number of mounds that can be found in all parts of the town. These are the springs of several river and stream flows that emanate from the town and form a system of nine different catchments:
Likhubula, Lunzu, Mombezi and Khombwi, which dewater the north part of the city, and Mudi, Chisombezi, Limbe, Luchenza and Mwampanzi, which dewater the central and south part. Köppen-Geiger classifies the Blantyre region as a subtropical region, more precisely as a savannah region (Aw) and is strongly affected by its position in the subtropical region and altitudin.
There are two different times of the year (three real seasons) in the town. It is generally chilly with average temperature ranges from 19°C (May to July) to 26°C (September to November) per month.
It is the business and industry capitol. This is by far the most important factor in town' s economic activity and has the greatest multiplying effect on the town' s population. It is Malawi's center of industry with many production sites. It has eight declared industry areas: Makata, Ginnery Corner, Maselema, Limbe, Chirimba, South Lunzu, Maone and Chitawira.
Makata, Ginnery Corners, Maselema, Limbe, Chirimba and Maone are still in development, while South Lunzu is not yet in use. The Chirimba Industry Area is called a heavily-industrialized zone, but it is the least advanced in the number of sectors. In addition to Makata, Ginnery Corner is another busy location, followed by Limbe and Maselema.
Chirimba and Maone are the least developed of these. The Chitawira and Maselema are classical samples of lightweight industries. 11 ] All developed areas are situated on the shores of the most important Blantyre creeks. Situated between the Mudi and Nasolo brooks is the Macata Industry Estate, while the Ginnery Corner Industry Estate is on the Mudi River.
Situated on the Naperi and Chirimba rivers, the Maselema and Chirimba areas are located. Malawi's biggest arena is located in the country's capitol, Lilongwe, which was completed in 2016 and can accommodate an expected 70,000 in population. It is home to the Malawi Flames, the country's international soccer squad. Malawi's second biggest arena, the Kamuzu-Stadion, which has an expected capacity of 60,000 spectators, is located in Chichiri.
Privately owned vehicles and vans that have fully superseded the bus as a means of transportation in the town. Mini-busses, an important part of most of Africa's towns, leave from the early morning while the last few bus and coach operations usually end at 19:00. Located mainly outside the city's top resorts, Mount Soche and Ryalls, the cabs offer Blantyre inhabitants an alternate means of commute.
Rail transport contributes significantly to the city's position as Malawi's most important trade and industry centre. Central East African Railways, formerly Malawi Railways, is based in Limbe. The route goes via Blantyre to Nsanje, near the Mozambique boundary to the south, which links Malawi with the Mozambique harbours of Beira and Nacala; Mchinji, near the Samibia-Boarrier; Salima and Lilongwe; and between Nkaya and Nayuchi on the Mozambique boundary to the east, a distance of 797 kilometers (495 miles).
19 ] There is a railway terminal in Chipoka on Malawi Sea from which Malawi Railways ships call at other seaports in Malawi. President Bingu wa Mutharika put into service in September 2007 some of the engines sponsored by the Thai authorities that will enable Blantyre's passengers to travel to other parts of the state.
Previously, a state-subsidised train travelled three days a week from Blantyre to Makhanga and to the Mozambique frontier near Nayuchi. There are buses from the Wenela and Wenela stations to Lilongwe, Mzuzu and other towns in Africa such as Johannesburg and Harare.

They are provided by the goverment, the city administration, evangelistic organizations and the business community. There is a broad spectrum of higher and higher level curricula, mainly in the Chichiri-Ginnery Corner (Malawi Polytechnic, College of Medicine, Kamuzu College of Nursing, Blantyre College of Health Sciences and Malawi College of Accountancy), Telecommunications National and SADCC Multi-Country Learning Schools, Technische and Police Schools, and Blantyre Teacher's College.

Among the International Primary und Saint Andrews International High School, Central High School, Nyasa Junior Academy, St Patrick's Primary School, St Patrick's Academy, South End Secondary School, Phoenix Primary School, Hillview International Primary School in Limbe und Kalibu Academy.
There are both preventative and preventative healthcare systems in the town, which are provided through a hospital and clinic net spread across different parts of the town. Eighteen community centers are run by the District Office in conjunction with Blantyre Municipality and the Bangwe, Chigumula, Chilomoni, Chirimba, Limbe, Ndirande, Manyowe, Masala, Mapanga, Misesa, Mzedi, Nancholi, Nkolokoti, Ntenje, Ntonda, South Lunzu, Zingwangwa and Civic Centre Cities.
A number of centers are operated by faith-based organizations where individuals receive healthcare and those belonging to legal entities/companies (serving their employees), such as ADMARC, Malawi Railways, Portland Cement, Lever Brothers, Tobacco Processors and National Seed Company of Malawi. As part of its liberalization policies, the town has built many privately run medical centers and hospital buildings (including the Blantyre Adventist Hospital and the Mwaiwathu PVT Hospital), which supplement the few finite old institutions.
Most of them provide outpatient care, the few incumbent ones both. In addition to the municipal healthcare service, many urban dwellers regularly use missions clinics located outside the town, as long as they are part of the city's healthcare system (Mlambe Hospital and Nguludi).
Furthermore, old-fashioned practitioners (herbalists) and old-fashioned obstetricians have an important part in the healthcare of the city's inhabitants. There is no healthcare system in the town. There is a great deal of work in hospitals and long lines are typical of ambulatory work. It has an approximate overall clinical community of between 25,000 and 28,000 people per clinic[data required], and the least populated areas are those with over 40,000 people per clinical centre, in comparison to the proposed 10,000 people per clinical centre.
