This is a common mistake politicians make. Don’t be fooled by this small snake called Atupele. He is already in talks with Pitala and now he is also engaging Chakwera. Be careful MCP. Atupele is an opportunist and right now he is taking a gamble. Eventually, he will go where the wind is blowing.

The MCP think they can win the presidency, but Malawi has turned into another Zimbabwe where rigging in the general elections is the order of the day. We got to change our political system by moving away from Unitay… Read more »
