It’s o ridiculous to c other people traveling to RSA for greener pastures this time around when masses r crying and struggling to return. We understand thers high unemployment in MW but it should be the same in SA as they r even implementing more measures than us. Why opt to suffer in a foreign land when ur home already?? It will only cost the nation more to get u back

Stupid Malawians why should you use uncharted routes in order to beat the COVID-19 instituted measures Malawi is observing. You want to kill more and more innocent Malawians 🇲🇼⛓️
