Nothing strange ndi mmene zimakhalilaTimes TV and Radio and Zodiak TV and Radio and HRDC were being used for campaign by Malawi Congress party and Tonse alliance. Brian, Kasakula, Gospel and Timothy are now reaping the rewards for their political cooperation.

Bad omen to Chakwera. The last Brian Banda came to state House, it ended in a loss in elections. Chakwera has started very badly and the future is BLEAK!

Zeze, avoid living in the past, MCP led Govt has the most solid political base in Malawi and with the 50 +1 requirement, DPP known for its Lomwelisation policy and corruption culture while in Govt for 14 solid years will have Mount Kilimanjoro to climb to dislodge this Govt. It will take ages for the Northern Region(Tumbukas) to trust and vote for DPP again.

I believe that this is deservedly so. BriN & George put their heads on the block to tell the old establishment the truth. If there are some other few people who have contributed immensely to the changing of regime, these two come tops so Congratulations Brian. All the best. I believe that you deserve it.

So, how many advisors does the president need? What is the role of 33 Ministers and deputy ministers and a legion of Principal Secretaries? The appeasement policy in Chakwera is rather too much. But is chilima still awake? Does the Malawi economy deserve all these appointments? Is this what you meant when you said yours shall be a modest government in terms of positions and the size of the cabinet? Ubwino wake we are all watching the Nonse alliance’s nakedness very very clearly. Good luck!
