zochimwitsana basi!!!!!!!

So so sad

This is a game called the rich and famous. Apolisi 9 died on duty less recognition. Mulli memorial service the rich and famous goes.Ofcourse Mulli will cough 20Million. Does that include allowances for the body guards, fuel for the convoy etc. Economically things are bad here in Malawi and we can feel it. Osangotumizako Minister wa za Business bwanji to save matambala. Just thinking loud.


Don’t worry about the money, it is for them. You do not budget what does not belong to you.

Bondera Bondera

Mulli mulembenso proposal ku NAC nanga sikumenekonos kukakhla Alhomwe ndiye akuti Alhomwe akasonkhana pamakhala chigololo ndichifukwa chake NAC inapereka ndalama. Perekaninso apa nanga sikuli gulu.

Lipirani ancthito


Kukapembedza ziwanda…. Ine ai masalamusiwo!!


Up to traditional dances at sadaka? Zomvetsa chisoni. Anthuni mukuganizawanji? Mapemphere okha kapena makwayala mzoveka koma magule shaaa…


While am not condemning commemorating the life of late Lecton Mulli but am just thinking to say what if that MK20 million was used to construct two school blocks and the donate them to the poor people of Mullis community as part of the charitable legacy of the great son of Phalombe. Coz spending that much just for phwando of one day will be of meaningless impact than something that can be cherished for generations!!


Shaaàaaaaaàa…….mpaka baboon?


This is money obtained from corrupt activities. Contracts that were not honoured, goods not supplied but money paid buy govt in full. Mulli is another Lutepo of the MK92B cashgate. So no matter how successful he might be I can not admire him.

Mwini chipani

Imeneyo timati sadaka ndipo ife aCCAP tikudabwa kuti mbusa Gama ndiye akutsogolera mwambo wa sadaka
