    Iwe political analyst ndiwe mfiti, galu, nyani.

  3. Nyirenda says:

    Dzitsilu dzimanyoza kamuzu koma chonsecho dzikugwila ntchito m’ma ofesi omanga kamuzu, zikuyenda m’misewu yomanga kamuzu.

  4. So you want to tell us that there is no space to include even a single photo for the guest of honour?

  5. Ogo says:

    The last picture where it shows a B747 in Malawi Air Malawi colours should not be there. That was a chartered flight used by Kamuzu on long trips to the UK. Its something we should not be proud of at least Kwacha the B737 would have been ideal. Other than that if you didn’t cross his path which unfortunately one would eventually, just if they crossed paths with the Tembos’ he will be remembered.

  6. Politcal analyst says:

    Malawi will never economically develop. How can she develop economically when she is critically mentally ill? At this age and time she is remembering an imposter dictator who ruled her with an iron fist. Malawians are expecting you politicians to develop this country. Why are we wasting out with useless things? I expected Chakwera to change the politics of Malawi but oh boy I was wrong. Malawi sazatheka.

  7. wacongress says:

    Father n founder of Malawi nation,ntchito zamanja anu timazionadi angwazi,mzimu wanu uuse muntendere

  8. marika says:

    Let’s respect Kamuzu indeed. He was the father and founder of the Malawi nation, even God The Almighty is aware of this. He shall still be remembered in the History of Malawi, come what may.

    May His soul rest in peace.

  9. Malawiana says:

    I hate these people. Basi avala ma jacket kukapembedza Kamuzu. Agalu, anyani inu ndi kamuzu wanuyo.

  10. Disappointed says:

    A gathering of incompetent politicians, celebrating life of a dead dictator. Shame on all of you. We have real issues that we are expecting our MPs to deal with. What a disappointing bunch of loosers! Za zii. F..k all of you!

    The true hero

  23. mpezeni says:

    It got no meaning to Malawians ,kamuzu was bad guy,cruel man.we need money not kamuzu Banda.

  24. Kenkkk says:

    I noticed the kamuzu clan calling itself the Chendawaka clan. That is tumbuka or tonga word/name, why? Just as kamuzu’s sister was called chatinkha, again a tumbuka or tonga word/name, why?

    Think deep about that!!

  26. AGOGOAKWANU says:

    mwina ndiyese inekukomenter za ziii kusowa zochita

  27. Celebrating the life of a dictator,celebrating the life of a person who fed many Malawians to crocodiles alive
    Celebrating the life of heartless tyrant who ruled Malawi with Iron fist`who did not value a human life at all
    And the worst part of it MCP is still using Kamuzu’s face/Kwachaaaa! as their slogan despite all atrocities he committed,
    Does MCP leadership have a clue that the directly affected families are still waiting for a formal apology???????truth should be told Malawians on this day supposed to wear black attires as one way of remembering dark days of Kamuzu and all the atrocities he committed
    ~Lastly I would like to congratulate Atcheya for bringing democracy in Malawi
    Atcheya Woyeeeeee!

  28. Alungwana says:

    He ruled the country with vision like his own property and not like a man on contract

  34. hendrina says:

    well organised event. but how busy were the president and the vice not to attend?

  35. memory chanza says:

    My presonal observation the Kamuzu Day events looks like it full of former politicians and I don’t see the other people in the stands this shows two things,people of Malawi wounds are still fresh on Kamuzu and MCP autocratic rule that it is hard to celebrate the day second people are happy with the democracy which MCp did not have…let’s love our parties but people know more mr chauwa show us the pictures of ordinary people who attended…I see vote of no confidence as people refused to attend

  36. Eish 3 says:

    His Soul Rest in Peace. Awa anali a Ngwazi eni eni osati zathuzi ai.

  37. Gologota wapaMtamba says:

    Zamanyazi kuti kuchiliza cha akulu awo anali konko koma akulu wadziko osapita. Two no azitenga misonkho yathu kukafukula nyasi za achimwene awoke mkukamangira ena. Uzisiya uona ndi dzulo lino.
