    We are all proud of you and continue what you are doing. A person who does their work quietly and does not seek attention letting their work speak for them BRAVO amuje choncho ndi umunthu

    Congratulations James! This is a young man who has worked with global billionaires such as Mo Ibrahim the man who brought mobile communications to Africa, he has even worked on the B-Group founded by Richard Branson of Virgin and numerous other Billionaires. Has worked with Former and Current heads of state on communications. I have followed this young man closely and have been extremely impressed with what he has become, a few people I know have benefitted from him in terms of school fees and medical assistance, I even saw the media work he has been doing internationally as he was the first person to break the news internationally of Malawi floods. He is a person who does not seek attention I believe he raised a lot of money and aid for Malawi flood victims. Do not be surprised to hear of more things he has done.

    Congratulations James, if you read this I met you at the World Bank Youth Forum in Malawi where you were the key note speaker. You really inspired all of us.

  4. Paja Peter mutharika wanted to fuck this young boy in the ass. Koma Ntata anaitulukira style and escorted him to the State House for his protection. That’s why a Peter got angry with Ntata. All this suing business is because he didn’t get some ass. Ntata cock-blocked him.

  5. Koma ukamuuze mkulu wako Powell asamangokhalira mowa. Sizimamukhala.
