Keep laughing, nursing is marketable in UK. If they work hard as Agency I hear they can make up to K2million a week. Mid corona virus ma nurse ena are getting between 50 to 100 pound’s per hour even more depending on Agency. Ife kuno tixilimbana ndi k1800 allowance.

I pity any man or woman that laughs at someone trying to better themselves or their situation. You must be a miserable person to find that funny. It’s something to be encouraged rather.

I hope Kaliyati, Trapence, Kenyatta, amzathu akumtundaku uku mukumva zimenezi. To.some, politics are.important.than life. The.belief is that covid won’t kill a Malawian just vecause of that, being Malawian, being black and wanting to.vote amd go into.govt. Now read these articles, 3.Malawians, as black as many of us, others as healthy, have died.in.the UK of COVID. Tiye nazoni, zidze pano nzatonse

Drogba, if we die it will be because of this corrupt regime. Being in Government means assisting ALL the people, using their taxes, osati kumangokhala phwii. This Government wants to keep the billions they have allocated to Covid response in their pockets. They are not conducting adequate testing – the figure can’t remain at 17 for a week when it is known that each positive person infects at least 2.5 other people. THIS GROSSLY INADEQUATE TESTING IS ALMOST CRIMINAL. They also don’t want to buy PPEs, ventilators, etc. They also don’t want to employ university students who are just staying… Read more »

Palibe vuto, learning doesnt stop….. no wonder illiteracy levels and poverty are very high in Malawi because of such backward thinking…learning has no limit and the average age of scientist studying the corona virus in France is 68, still learning it…, Inu muuesa ka degree at 20 years its enough….people in advanced countries get degrees in their teens up to sixties, but poverty thinking here posits degree only early 20s….no wonder we grant injunctions against lockdown….

Burukutu, I totally agree with you. In the West, people continue to acquire degrees beyond 40 years because they believe learning is a continuous process. That is why they have advanced system and research which leads to developed economies. For Africa’s learning is believed to be for young people. By the time they reach mid to late 30s they have stopped learning and depend on kusolola to enrich themselves.

You can go ahead with lockdown you and your family will be safe. What are you waiting for? We don’t have enough food for lockdown we don’t wanna die with both either covid19 or hunger. At the moment we’re trying as much as possible to prevent the spread of corona. They are on lockdown and I think following all provided msgs on how to prevent catching the corona virus . May their souls R.I.P missed by family and friends

Nothing bad to learn at 48. Education has no age limit. He wants to sustain himself & keep his family at his wishes.
His trade of DJ is an old fashion since nowadays no more discos coz the environment is changing technologically. He is in the right track.

Its never too late to be anything one aspires to be. I would encourage DJ to go get his Nursing degree. Chiswa B u really need to know Nursing is a real deal in advanced Countries. Qualified Nurses make way more per two weeks than what most CEOs in Malawi make per month. What did you want him to study? Nursing rocks Bro!

What an insensitive remark. He was a loving father to his children and family. And served for this nation. Even a DJ serves to his community; I can’t believe you actually laughed going ‘kkkk’. May the Grace of our Mighty God be known by you one day. He is in the business of transforming lives in this world and I pray he may transform your tongue to celebrate such development in others lives. Even you thought it was impossible, but he did it! He was a practising nurse – what a great feat and testimony that he followed a selfless… Read more »

Mabvuto, Covid 19 originated from China (incase you’ve forgotten), hence this has been imported into every other country and hard to control.

This is happening worldwide. Mind u a virus is unstoppable just like Aids how it spread was unstoppable. Borders are not a solution since this virus is said to an bacteria. The remedy is to find the stopping medication.
