This is to advise the Nyasatimes reporter from Balaka to stop publicising trivial issues like this one. Malawi is a big society and there are a lot of important issues to be shared and not of this type. Recently, there has been a lot of coverage of negative things about people of Balaka, but they are good enough to be left out of this important online news post, as most of them are trivial and not in the interest if the public.
