      Iwe Ngoni moti siukudziwa kuti tsankho la DPP ndi Alomwe likuti wawa. In case you do not know there is poverty per head among Lomwes than northerners. This is why in BT there is plenty of cheap labour eg housemaids.. go to Mzuzu and you will have to order cheap labour from the south. Inuyo Alomwe mukulimbana ndi munthu woti mulungu wamudalitsa. tiyeni nazo tiwone m’mene zithere.

  18. Jose' says:

    It is the most unwise thing on earth to make fun of a death. The deceased, Mwenda, should be one of you maTutsi. If you had any drops of brains remaining in your persons, you would feel sorry for the deceased. Has politics overtaken us so much that we can no longer feel for our own death. Atumbuka ombwambwana inu

  19. Alungwana says:

    From Bt to Phalombe at 2am? So sorry for that.

    May the soul of this man rest in peace. For those who dont know, Victor was a video camera man. He used to cover various functions including weddings, funerals etc and on this trip he was assigned by to shoot a video and take still photos at a funeral ceremony in Phalombe(Ana Kachikho). He wasnt anywhere close to being a DPP supporter or whatever. He went there simply to do his Job.

    1. Mtumbuka says:

      RIP Victor, we shall miss you.

    2. Ma says:

      No 16 mmayesa akuti Mwenda was DPP official iwe nde ukuzitenga kuti zoti anali camera man? Tikhulupilire zakhutu zakozo or official police report..

      RIP all dead if you were God fearing otherwise you wont rest in peace in hell if you were sinners…..
