The African Magazine Leadership Group is run by… Africans. Google it and you will see. Why are these fellow Africans blind and deaf? On what do they base this award? I’ve seen no statistics or other evidence that would justify it. Were they bribed? Please can we have a Magufuli.


Koma za manyi akupanga agalu akupereka award kwa fisi yu zitha liti. Can’t they see that they r promoting bad leadership. Why didnt they ask us to rate his performance. What development has this idiot brought to the country. Motherfuckers


It is really the West who are contributing to our under development. this is a ridicule to Malawian. Exceptional leadership? hhhmmmm. boot lickers. cry for my beloved Malawi. we are doomed


This is just a way of gaining some publicity for the magazine owners – nothing else! Take this award seriously at your own risk! Everyone is ranking Malawi poorest but someone wakes up and says its leader is impacting lives positively?? really?? A country that is in the “dark” for 18 hours out of 24 hours everyday – someone says its leader is positively impacting on the lives of its people?? Shame on you


Award for impacting on lives of Malawians POSITIVELY? Award for DEVELOPMENT? Do these people who throw awards to others recognize the practicalities of lives and developments on the ground in Malawi? Are awards free for all? Are awards bought?
