MBULI ZILIPO ZAMBIRI. Please don’t take all your information on other countries based on propaganda and brainwash provided by CNN BBC and what other western media all brainwashed people believe in. . Cuba is a black country in the western hemisphere which as Latin speaking people. . Just like Malawi was colonized they were colonized and ostracized by western imperialists. These people have been demonized by standing against imperialism and other forms of so called democracies. Cocaine amalima ndi ma Cubans ? They are just scapegoated mhm. Anthu dzukani and stop believing the propaganda.
