    Our economy can not collapse because of these few dollars. Ours is in billions. I think we waste time with these small time crooks while our poiliuticians milk forex big time. You think JB is eating stones out there? You think there are well wishers out there who could care for her for a whole year? Amalawi kugona too much. Let these traders take their money, they worked for it.

    When things started to get out of hand during Bingu era, this type of news was one of the symptoms that things were bad. Everyone, including state House was hoarding forex. Did we nothear hope state hous does not hear of sacks of forex in car boots during JB’s alarm about looting at state House By the way, how did that story end? And now ankolo goes China but could not go Gaborone? Help me understand, what priorities and policies is mu uncle pursuing? Why can’t he let us know where he is driving this bus to. Or is he on a jolly ride in the city?

  16. Malawiyano says:

    It’s their money , this is the only country which gets bothered by people taking their hard earned money outside the country . Just give that money back to the owners. After all who has complained about the money to have been stolen ? You want investers to come and invest in Malawi and you want them to be keeping the valueless Malawi Kwacha , why ?

  19. Mulangizi wa APM pa mthibulo says:

    But Malawi government irresponsibly gave trading rights to all these foreign vendors (the kind of vending that is supposed to be restricted to only Malawian youths), did you not expect illegal forex externalisation?
