    DPP is full of a pack of thieves. It starts from Pitala coming down to his boys and gilrs. This is why the currency keeps falling everyday. They are stealing big time to feed their pot bellies. Are people aware that all the money collected by MRA is being abused by these DPP people, using all that money to fund the activities of their party? In such cases someone has the knack to lie to Malawians that the economoy will soon pick up, my foot!
