That’s being too moral mr president but the positions given to the two battle men are irrelevant to their qualifications. Business mgt is not like

Stuypid Malawians. How co you really expect top notch soldiers work as deputy managers at some nondescript parastatals? Where were they trainers in business management? No wonder we will remain the poorest country in SADC. These two should have been rehired into the army, or at worst leave them and earn their salary from home, but sirely taking them as deputy managers is really insulting them.


ena angolandira ndalama but are just home waiting to be posted.its unfair. post or fire muwapase zawo


I like these patriotic soldiers

Msonthi is cunning….He’s dangerous; Malawians better be afraid of this gentleman…


Congratulations John.I like you because you were once avery good football player. Cool but you knew what you were going..


Peter is scared and afraid that Msonthi will release the GAY photos from USA. Mathanyula wayiwona gemütlichkeit kuti yavuta but let me silence the general.


No wonder we shall remain a poor nation forever. These guys are at the center of cashgate and someone rehires them. They have experience in stealing from govt purse and you now hire their expertise. shame
