And look here, chakwera has already abandoned his Hi5 agenda and he is now selling chilimas manifesto, what a puppet he is. In 5 years chakwera will have been outsmarted already.

Chief Justice Nyirenda should be ashamed to want to continue working when he has accumulated so many leave days. Akukakamira pa mpando chifukwa chiyani? Akubisa chiani? Kufuna ma allowance kapena. SHAME on him.

how can a judge objectively judge on something that concerns his boss. A separate body should have heard off the CJ and not the HRDC.

The sin the judges committed is the ruling against tippex election, Akanapanga zokomela bwana tippex pitala sakanathangisidwa waku unexpected holiday eti? Mchitidwe uwu ngoipa uyenela kutha Ku malawi. And moreover u boss Peter Mutharika wakwachani awa anapita Ku school Kuti akhale a judge komanso ma president Ali ndi five years 1st term in office and a chance of having in the second five years if voted. Peter Mutharika mustn’t forget that being there isn’t permanent sir please.
