Fare thee well Atupele, you are a democratic. Let Chakwera borrow a leaf from you. Kungoluza chisankho basi ulendo ku khoti nkumakalira kumeneko. Umbuli sungathe ponamizira kulankhula ngati wa ku America. Mbuli ya ku dambwe ndi mbuli basi?

Zonamiza mbuli zinzanu zimenezi! We know that it was planned by DPP and Bakili for Atupele to open Eastern for manipulation to diffuse Joyce Bandas influence, and that he then will be relocated. But even then, with all the manipulation, you failed to beat Chakwera! Wait for the courts and you will cry real tears of blood. By the way, We are also reopening the almost concluded 1.7 billion Kwacha case

You must have selective memory Mr. Msowoya. Have you forgotten that DPP has sold the country to Indians and Chinese? Batawalala has tenders to supply everything in the DPP government. Batawalala runs dpp. The other mmwenye bribed Pitala Mutharika with K145 million of tax payers money. Do you know that Batawalala charges almost K200, 000 to supply uniform (trouser/skirt, shirt and tie) for one immigration officer? What kind of materials are the uniforms made of? Are they designed by Versace or Prada? Go tell your DPP that we see what’s happening and we’re not stupid! Atupele has failed Malawi and… Read more »

Atupele try get a job in China. Malawi has no need for your nepotistic type of politics. One you get a job in China please call your father Bakili to live in China. Bakili is a man who has done irreparable damage to democratic institutions in Malawi. Bakili is father of corruption, nepotism, and abuse of power. Good riddance to you and your father.
