Chinsapato cha Mrs Chakwera

Nyau ndikuzavina kuzavina pamenepaja. Fumbi mbwee. Ndikuzavina azimayi Kuyimba mokweza. Gule ndikuvina kuvina kuzadumpha m’malere. Kuzagwa pansi kuti phwaaa!!! Wamaayooo!! Ndakhalira phwala! That will be Chakweras fate. If he’s careful Chakwera must start wearing underwear. Stop this nonsense of politicising everything or risk becoming like John Tembo. 85% of Malawians are in rural areas and are closely watching. Not his paid vendors, actors and HRDC goons. Real Malawians with real issues. People with no access to even a clinic or health Center. People that don’t eat politics.This is how Bingu won his second term in landslide the people saw through… Read more »

The story about Kaliyeka is all falae. The MP for the constituency Msungama has done a research into these alleged cases and has vehemently rebutted the story.

This is all dirty politics by the nervious and corrupt DPP. DPP is very afraid of the elections and is resorting to scaremongering and trying to block the inevitable, that is getting booted out of the government. This is how the DPP mafia works. DPP cannot win the elections. Only way for them is to use their usual fraudlent tactics. DPP is desperate.

Vuto lothawila school pawindo umamgolemba zopanda pake no evidence just mere innuendo with no substance. A.k.a bullshit theories. Who has time to be faking Corona. Corona is here and and there is no running from it. Some people are asymptomatic(google meaning or let me spell it out for you, it means they can have the virus without showing symptoms or having mild symptoms ) while having the virus. These people can recover without being evidently sick. This does does not mean they don’t have the virus or cannot spread the virus.

Msungama does not know what a research is since he is a JCE holder.You can not carry out a research in 30 minutes,imeneyo si research koma a composition.Msungama Reseach is conducted by graduates and you are not and u will never be a graduate, because you are a fool

Judge kenyata nyirenda should be castrated for opposing every step Government was taking to curb Corona. Aphetsa anthu osalakwa.

Now Malawians are not taking safety measures seriously because of careless remarks and actions of hell-bent people like kenyata, chilima, chakwera and uyu wakukamwa kong’ambikayu trapence. These people must be arrested for commiting crimes against humanity. They are misleading people.

Malawi belong to the citizens

I don’t understand why Malawians you are not putting masks.Kumaganiza guys.Mwina mukufuna kumango nyoza majudge.Your life is important, put on masks please don’t wait for the clueless government to tell you.The government is very happy in announcing the figures and dreaming of lockdown.People around the world are using masks to avoid breathing in the infected breaths from people around them.Thats the greatest solution so far.
