I doubt if the ship called Malawi has a Captain. Is he alive or dead? Is he within the country or somewhere? How powerful is Jane Ansah to force a whole president to coil his tail? May be he is not sure of himself, hence he should pave way for others. But for god”s sake not Chimulirenji, who happened to be the first serious blunder that Matharika had made. We need people who can ably articulate facts at international for a. For sure, we need our real Malawi back, not this mediocrity.

Wrong! Wrong! Wrong!
Destroying property is criminal. What if the same happened to your family’s house? The organizers of the protests must set a good example for their followers. If MEC mismanaged the election and all concerned are justified to protest; it makes no sense for protesters to get so low as to destroy property or hurt. Destroying property is the same as mismanaging the election results. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Both are wrong y’all!

What kind of foolishness is this. So you think stealing billions is okay but burning an agry building like that is 3× wrong. Look my friend this country is sick and requires an operation to remove the tumor. It needs to be cut open. So some fresh will have to be cut. People have been dying for the past 5 years of curable diseases because money to buy drugs have been stolen.To stop that property will be destroyed probably life will be lost just like fresh being cut in a medical operation. That is necessary if you have stubborn people… Read more »

The problem is that demos have been infiltrated by thugs now. Most of them DPP THUGS / sympathizers themselves. And these are the ones now looting innocent people’s properties. Azimbuye awo are LOOTING government COFFERS and now they have sent PETTY DPP THIEVES to destroy the good image of demos.
We are loosing property and top DPP gurus and simply don’t care because they are thugs themselves and DO NOT belong to Malawi

Kubwenzela Nkowawa….. inu mudakonza yanzanu office ku BT lero anzanunso akukonzani. Malawi wasopano.

I can see Muntharika soon going. I can see rerun but Muntharika will not be part of DPP next presidental candidate.

I can see Jane Ansa being arrested.

Unfortunately am not a prophet to tell the people in church.
