A Malawi ndife anthu opusa kwambiri. We all are going to die no matter what we do or say. We should not be spreading such rumours and after all the man is in retirement and is not inflicting pain on us like Pitala or Bingu.

I request you to say “aMalawi wena ndiopusa kwambiri” because we have very intelligent Malawians like you and me who would not think of posting such rubbish on social media. God bless for showing your displeasure with the rumour though.
