Be Human may be leaving and writing from outside Malawi, DPP is a regionalistic and tribalistic party. Look at how it fills positions in public service. Yes the DPP Caliphate might win next elections but not the hearts of most Malawians. Winning an election in Malawi does not mean credibility. It might also mean rigging. The Caliphate will at any cost want to remain in power not to serve Malawians but escape justice on cashgate saga. But history teaches us that how strong evil empires can be one day they will crumble.

First term of President Bingu waMuthariza should serve as an example of what responce the nation gives to a government when things are going well. Second term things went sour and the nation complained . The current DPP Government should have drawn a lesson from this . Trying to silence those who are speaking /or trying to point out things that are going wrong will not solve any thing. Rectify the things that are going wrong .Take constructive criticism and use it to solve the problems people are complaining about . Mind you, God sees what you are doing and… Read more »

If DPP can not entertain criticisms,then it is neither democratic nor humane,is indeed inhumane.It is utterly wrong be humane,to say that is a smear campaign against rat eaters dominated DPP,this is perfectly what it is.Worse still,DPP is run by foreign inspired thugs including Mathanyula and his former uncouth brother Bingu.Malawians must now learn a bitter lesson after Banda who himself was a mountebank.These two Muthalikas fit the word because what they have done or doing to our country contradicts their nationality in that,first and foremost,they are unpatriotic leaning to divide our people to their solely advantage,already make no mistake,Malawi… Read more »

DPP – The Democratic People’s Party?????? Rather ‘The UNdemocratic People’s Party’. Criticism of government is part and parcel of democracy.

Ine ndatopa ndi mapologaram a ndale. MBC has abused me for quite long time. Mukawina masankho mumadya nikha ndalama. A sumbuleta pologram ya chindunji muzipanga nokha ine ndatopa. A Malawi mundikhululukire pa zonse ndakulakwilani

KKK those who know the man in the picture during one party rule(1991-1994) when he was a student at CHANCO with attest that he is 1000% pro Kamuzu and for him anything that will bring back MCP is heaven sent and shall use that to settle his agenda. His combination with Chikadya is a combination of a duo that have a score to settle and they will use that media house to advance their agenda! Is he the best opinion leader?? I doubt that the whole state machinery would be waisting its time on these cluesless guys who, because the… Read more »

Mavuto ku DPP akuchulukira, mupha angati? Ngati mufuna kuti anthu akhale chete asakuneneni make things work for Malawians. Kupha anthu or kunama mabodza is not a solution because whether you like it or not mavutowo siatha akhalapobe and people will keep on speaking. This is Malawi for Malawians not Malawi for dpp. Mwatikwana.
