I JUST WANT TO SHARE ONE MESSAGE WITH MY MALAWIAN COLLEAGUES. POLITICS IS NOT A QUICK WAY TO GET RICH! STOP LYING TO YOURSELF AND YOUR COUNTRY. ID YOU HAVE A POLITICAL IDEOLOGY WELL AND GOOD STAND BY THAT IDEAOLOGY BUT BECAUSE ALL THE NAMES ARE RECYCLED IA SUSPECT YOU THINK YOU WILL IMPROVE YOUR LIVES BY GOING TO DPP! JUST GO TO THE VILLAGE AND START USING YOU LAND DILLIGENTLY! THAT IS HOW YOU GET WEALTH!

Leave them these prostituting hyenas. They will disappear come 2019. Dpp must have bought them for heaven and earth sums if you consider msonda’s previous comments.
