Zomba is a city in southern Malawi, in the Shire Highlands. It is the administrative capital of Zomba District. It was the capital of first British Central Africa and then Nyasaland before the establishment of the Republic of Malawi in 1964. It was also the first capital of Malawi and remained so until 1974, when Lilongwe became the capital. The city is best known for its British colonial architecture and its location at the base of the dramatic Zomba Plateau.
Naisi (or Old Naisi) is a community in the Southern Region of Malawi, now in effect a northern suburb of the city of Zomba. The community lies below the Zomba Massif to the north, which may be accessed via a rough road. Naisi is the birthplace of James Frederick Sangala, one of the founders of the Nyasaland African Congress.
