Doing nothing is an option for your information. Read a little bit about the McElvey Theory before you get too excited about nothing. The tiny deposits have been known as early as the late 1800’s but not acted upon because of more weighty considerations. If oil could get any nation out of poverty it should have done that to Nigerians who continue to live in abject poverty in-spite of the obvious abundance of the “liquid”.

Malawi has no option , Licence were advertised, tendered and issued according to the law , we want to run away from reality, it’s a catch 22 situation were we can’t cancel and restart. The reality is that Licence are already issued and if taken to court we can lose Billions.

Muamuar Gadafi refuse offers from Shell and British petroleum, borrowed money and started sucking the oil from the ground and made a lot of money from the oil his government refined unlike Nigeria which is being financially raped today. President Mutharika and the DPP government should not be exited by a meager earning to alleviate the budget and the economy for a few years. Let this permanently change the landscape of our economy and lives of Malawians

Comments number 6 and number 15 have said it all. The war cry now for saving the earth is “keep it in the ground,”


I my opinion, our country doesn’t really have the required capacity of either managing or oversight of such an ambitious project. Our economy wont improve by its implementation but foreigners well only reap from us. Maybe we need a strong political background
