Well done LLCC for a job well done. May I ask that once in a while you should also be patrolling the Gateway Mall to Bunda turnoff bypass as well as most times there are lorries carrying garbage from Area 9 and most of this garbage ends up on the tarmac road which a health risk as well as endangers the life of motorists.

KFC should be fined with no compromise. Ask them to meet all required standards. Deport all managers. BLANTYRE City Council please visit KFC Blantyre I can assure you we have a similar problem. But then all councils in the county should do the same in all food selling outlets. They should feed us shit we need food.

Crooks to the bone. They import chickens instead of buying local chickens, claiming that they are of low standard
