Why raising that much,is it because of prophet Bushiri’s character but a winner is a winner,even doubling the amount hundred times people will still pay.


uku ndiye kukaniza kwa uchi intellectual. Govt on move of sourcing money>>>>i see


no more hire


Kuganiza kwa quota system uku.


is part of service reforms or to prevent ,stoping others to hire the security?if it is the betterness of police so much so good if it is for political, expect security breakdown in Malawi


Well, this is an emotional decision. What about city and district councils who hire the same police and are struggling to pay at MK500.00 per officer/person. Now MK20.000.00 per officer/person will be beyond reach for most councils. Lets refrain from making decisions influenced by emotions and politics, but be based on facts and reality


Kkkk Pay later has been put in a bin! Why now?
