Mulli so nde ndi nyemba ya uku yayitali ija. Politicizing everything.

wa ku Mitchesi kuja!!!!
wa ku Mitchesi kuja!!!!

Simply put, those castigating the whole Mulhakho, on this forum, at this juncture of Mr. Mangulama’s death, and even suggesting that the death is predetermined fate of the leaders of Mulhakho wa aLhomwe, are simply ignorant individuals. fate regarding death? My foot!
Inasmuch as they have no sympathy or substantial contributions; they vent their personal frustrations at any opportunity; very inappropriate when the main subject is death of a good citizen. A very good person, who many or all the abusers never even met. Shame!


tHE first Patron of Mulhakho, BIngu died of cardiac arrest. Its national chairman dies of cardiac arrest. Kodi ndi matenda a Mulhalho kapena kudya gondolosi kwambiri alomwe? Chenjerani mutha nonse. Someone does not approve of this grouping that is dividing Malawi.


May The Soul Of Our Beloved Father Rest On The Bossom Of The Lord
