Disbelief to see Kasungu market in ashes

Property worth millions of Kwacha at Kasungu market has been destroyed as fire reduced the shops to mere smouldering rubble.

The cause of the fire is yet to be  established.

The incident follows another recently where Lilongwe Area 18 market, Tsoka Flea Market and Mzuzu market were also destroyed.

President Peter Peter Mutharika instituted a ministerial committee to look into the occurrences and come up with lasting solutions to the problem.

after all the finger pointing what do we have for those affected.

Chakwera the fireman of Nyau Party is the one behind all this. Machesi ali thoo mmanja. This pastor of yours simply wants to make campaign at burnt markets one after another. Next time mr fireman chakwera will burn his very podium.

Shame on you MCP president! How can you stoop so low setting markets on fire only to rush there as a sympathiser. This is hypocrisy of the highest order, stop this madness bwana Chakwera.
