Poor choice of cabinet so far. Wayamba udyo Chakwera. Why choose from Lilongwe and North only. Fotseki. Inu a UTM dziwani palibe chanu.

Iwe chilima take personal care on MCP vampires. They killed one of their own Jumani when he was showing interests to mcp fortunes. They can also kill you chilima silently. Take care, mcp is a secret nyau cult of chewas.

Well done my Malawian brothers and sisters for demonstrating to Africa and the world what true democracy is about. I may not be Malawian but as a fellow African, I feel very
proud to be able to celebrate this victory for democracy, for justice and for Africa. Mwachita bwino, zikomo kwambili!
