Comment:   there is only one sheathing bract visible iso several but otherwise a fine match for H. longiflora. NOTE: The location is most likely correct but the GPS coordinated and QDS are completely wrong for Zomba and place it hunderds of kilometers further North in the middle of Lake Malawi. Correct QDS for location would be 1535AD
