How much is vertiver money to be talking about? ACB is useless. You fail to deal with real issues. Arrest Chaponda first you idiots. If it is capacity challenge in your organisation, then I think it is serious.

Generation of Vipers

May be the DC is being targeted because he is from the North


He is purely DPP but ngulube is a thief way back when he was in nkhatabay


Ichi ndi chindere chikulu. chithamangitseni chirute kwawo kumpoto. Chatisausa chomene ife ku Mangochi. Tikuchikhumba yayi. Tachikana


never in the history of the world has Malawi been subjected to disaster called cashgate, an embarrassing exercise carried by government officials, who are suppose to care and serve the nation,…….
I ask god ,God who takes life of a man ,a day when life is sweetest,

True. ACB should stop investigating minor cases while serious cases involving dpp politicians are just idle in their offices. I fear this Nguluwe might be in affiliate to a certain oppostion party, thus his arrest.

Go for money that matters…. follow MK236 million, maizegate and the like not change mukulimbana nachochi.
