    Look here, the guy has spent 13.5million. He will be in Malawi in few weeks or month. Are you guys going to show him that summer hurt as a class room. God help us. We need real earl childhood class room- with state of the art technology in them. The guy has spent,and is ready to spend more money for the next ten years. and this is what he is going to be shown? Hope not. if the answer is yes.

    You must be joking. Don’t tell us you spent 13.5 Million to build the above ( chilindo) summer hurt, please show us the building?

    Madona left because of mismanagement of money by Malawian. Please give us a break!

    do these initiatives really benefit the most needy on the grassroots?? or they benefit the NGO bosses only?? I’ve never heard about Federer’s foundation in Malawi. Akabweraa mumva wanyanyala a Malawi amubera ndalama zake kkkkkk

  17. The real ujeni says:

    You want a bigger global sports superstar, it doesn’t get any better than Rodger Federer. Not Asamoah Gyan, who is he? Now check how ignorant Tribalists backward Malawians will react to his coming, kuli zii even government officials are as ignorant of a global star. These are the guys who can sell Malawi, attract multinationals to strike deals with Malawi, like Gillette, Adidas, Nike,and other sports drinks manufacturing companies, publicise his coming massively and will reap good things. Sitting phwiii and hopping Malawi will sell itself out there, it will never happen. Let the President give him an audience, this guy is gold.
