Or at least to learn how to play organisedly,” he says, as we drive past a farmers’ market at the side of the M1 highway.

It felt like an art director had been shaping the landscape all along the way from the Chileka International Airport, just outside Blantyre, to the city centre. Right in front of a vegetable stall, seven barefoot kids play football on the dirt; only their ball is not a football. It’s a pumpkin.
