    #NZIKA, IF U LVE IN SOUTH AFRICA, THERE IS A PHONE NUMBER IN THE STORY WHICH YOU CAN CALL AND YOU WILL BE TOLD WHOM TO CONTACT IN THE AREA YOU LIVE. YOU ARE NOT SECLUDED

  4. aNAC dola munapatsa mabungwe la Mathanyula ndi Nkhwangwa yake tengani gulilani makondomu apite kwa anzathu akukhala m’mathenti kamba ka madzi osefukila chifukwa m’matentimo AZINGOPWALANA mapuleni EDZI inkela ntsogolo. Iyi ndi ngamo a NAC…………On a rather serious note, to you all brandishing your FWE FWE FWE misplaced hatred for Tumbukas. For once why don’t you accept the superiority of my PEOPLE over your slumbering central and southern region tribes. Malawian history testifies openly that Northerners are far more civilized than you people. So, swallow your pomp and pride and give us the respect we deserve for we have contributed much more than you to the upliftment of our nation.

      Shut up! Galu iwe, ikufuna anthu ayabe kudana ndi kuyamba chipolowe chifukwa za nosense ukukambazo zo sankha tribes. Fotseki. Osayambitsa chipolowe. Tonse ndife a malawi, ti thandizane pamene pali mavuto..

  5. Ambiri mwa inu aphwanga ndakuwonani nanunso mukufunika chithandizo dziko laeni mukukhalalo. Tangobweranikoni, kapena tisonkhe pang’onopang’ono tizakutengeni. How can the multitude of you raise a meagre 1300 Rands towards a colossal mishappening that has begotten us?

Always yes as longer the leader is from your region or tribe.

  25. Chithandizocho kuno ndiye chikupelekedwa.koma please musayike mau aja woti “wa nkachisi amadya za nkachisi”.

  26. Real Patriot says:

    Kodi iwe Mbuli Fathara you seem to have so much hate for Tumbukas?Are these problems in Malawi made by Tumbukas?Is this incompetent govt led by Tumbukas? Are these massive siphoning of Nac funds for your outdated culture made by Tumbukas.Why cant you just admit that the Nepotistic Lomwe govt has failed to run this tiny impoverished country.What they know is to rescue their outdated tribal grouping.Stop blaming Tumbukas for your incompetency or try Tumbukas and see how Malawi will change overnight as another Taiwan in Africa.Just remove your blind loyalty and vote for competent people and forget about your tribal affiliation.Leave Tumbukas alone.The failed Pitala is your Lomwe grandfather.

  27. mpimpa says:
