Nyasa times your have no skills. That negative reporting is poverty driven. You mean after only 41% passed the whole country you have the guts to write “half failed in prison”. I thought the best was “half passed despite a high failure rate”. Be positive and know when to use negative reporting. It’s high time you journalists start writing good about your country. You are useless to some point coz you always tell pipo bad news than news of hope.
