Anthuwa ngaamdzi. But natural justice will take charge


Namata is a well known thief. We have prosecutors who don’t prepare well. Namata has wealth that cannot be traced. He has mansons everywhere in Lilongwe except at his cemetery where we all end up. We steal as if one day we will not die. Even Pitala is on death row now and that’s why he doesn’t care about Malawi. As for Goodall kuyendera ndodo is a sign of nearing the end. Please make Malawi a better place for young ones inu nkhalamba zopanda nzeru.

Mlovi wapa Nkhata

Thez no justice in Malawi


Our judges are doing this great country and its people great injustice and disservice!
