My Fellow Malawians, let MEC do their work…. as far as am concerned if Chakwera wins elections, in 2 or 3 years of His leadership youll start complaining, not that Hell be a bad president but because that`s what you are (complaining on each and every president who comes in power).. same applies to Chilima or Peter.. lather we change the president but not the party… if Peter wins, let him be president untill DPP choose another president which we must vote for..
