The citizenry is bitter about many things hence they vent their anger on anything that cause discomfort. Those are signs of frustrations. Even K100 (One hundred Kwacha) can make one kill the other person. The economy has hit households so hard. Any slight misunderstanding will cause trouble.

Malawian prisons need to stop giving meals to prisoners. It is much needed and wasted taxpayers money. Let prisoners pay for their meals or die. Let the money be allocated to health or something that builds the nation.

Introduce the law that heavily punishes any one who destroys houses of others using any form – it must be a number years. Ensure those who kill others get the punishment quickly too.
