    Kodi enanu mumanodziwa kutsutsa basi?? Inuyo mwapita ku maliro angati pa moyo wanu kapena kumene mwalephera kupitako?? It’s a shame that you just criticise for the sake of doing so without finding out facts behind such changes. Grow up Malawians. Kodi Sata wanuyo anabwera kumaliro a mbwiyathu Bingu??

    President Mike Higgins, you are welcome to Malawi. I suppose you should have started to attend the Presidential Burial of late President Sata tomorrow in Zambia and then come here.
    My condolences to the Christians across the globe for the untimely death of Dr M. Munroe and his wife and the all who were on board of the plane. Its so so sad. We have lost a father, leader, Pastor the world looked up to. We have lost and heaven has gained with words saying WELL DONE THOU GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT. May your souls rest in peace.

    It is okay for them to come to our country freely while to their country very much impossible!!! Secondly, please no more missionaries from that country as they are racist and don’t take local vocations . They protect their own and don’t trust the local vocations.Next, they need to get visa before landing in this peaceful country. Most of them think that Malawians are stupid because we are some how polite people.

    Si Izo mmati sanapute ku maliro a Sata can’t you see we a have a visiting head of state here just becoz anatipatsa fuel pa maliro basi you Malawians muziganiza musananyoze

    This shows how disorganized this administration is. You mean no one remembered that the president of Ireland was coming when the state house issued a statement that APM was going to attend President Sata’s funeral???? This is a total mess!!!!!
