This is a fucking joke; we should look into voting procedures and identify any irregularities. Remember what the husband did rigging elections. The culprit was involved in voting; oh shit, anyone heard that there will be such election? Most of all you stole NAC money and without reasonable doubt she wants to steal again. Do you have conscience; I can’t comment of kind hearted


What about the K73m collected by JB foundation through abiti Namaloko? I see those commenting for BEAM to refund NAC are not mentioning about this other thief and those NGOs that also stole from NAC. Muluzi wa agalu ndi umozi and galu ndi galu ngakhale wina angakhale okoleka chi nsalu pa phewa wina nakhala wa Gay onse ndi agalu basi!
