The ambassador however urged the government of Malawi to ensure security of all Japanese people living in Malawi especially those that have committed themselves for enhanced and vibrant relations between the two countries.

What have the demos to do with JICA? I dont understand how people in their sanity can vandalise JICA offices. Does Jane have offices at Jica? Its unjustifiable.
