Bwana Chilima mwatilankhulira bwino ife ma civil servants . Kale kunali lamulo lakuti civil servant asakhale more than eight years before promotion. Zinatha kale zimenezi. Anthu akungolira no wonder poor performing civil service because promotion is only for wakwithu.

It might sound patriotic and democratic for the so- called Vice President Mr.Chilima to admonish his fellow leaders no to oppress Malawians.But he did not fire the salvos against his fellow leaders including his boss,for exploiting the overwhelming poor of our people who can hardly feed their families day in day out,while the leaders plunder government coffers for their own agrandisement and self interests.Mr.Chilima,please get educated.


I believe Mr Chilima knows better about oppression in malawi. 1st government can’t reduce call charges though they are highest ever. Malawians are paying alot of tax money to companies that don’t reach government coffes.Please Mr act now you’re not late.Oppression is at worse.


What is the connection between oppressing the poor and this funeral? I don’t understand, can someone assist me please?
