By the look of things, Malawi is fast becoming a totalitarian state even worse than North Korea considering that what happens in North Korea is expected! So we have reached a point where people cannot exercise their rights? The problem is that our authorities are so arrogant and they think that, by the mere fact that they are in positions of authority, then they have the monopoly of all wisdom! How foolish!

Kaya mutiuze ndiinu kuti kodi akati notification amatanthauza kuti chani? Ngati zimatanthauza kungopereka kalata basi mkumapita bola yafika bwanji amavomereza zokambairana? Do people need the police in demonstrations? If they need them kodi pa notification nso umafuna support/cover? Some of these words much as they are in english, they take a legal definition meaning its understanding is beyond the dictionary translation. You cannot just wake up in the morning and say next week i will be on the street. Achita bwino kummanga inde palibe akukondwa ndi blackout koma asamatiseweretse. aziwerenga petition before march coz these people have different agendas and… Read more »
