Thodi has been deployed to the Ministry of Energy to spy on Atupele Muluzi. They are in an alliance that has no trust. Atupele open your eyes

Elvis Thodi.is a lap dog for Old Age Pensioner President Mutharika.
Mutharika has placed Thodi at Energy to report every suspicions move made by Atupele Muluzi.
Beware Atupele, you will be tarnished by other ambitious politicians in DPP who see you as a threat to the Lomwe empire of corrupt thieves and crooks vying to inherit the Presidency from the Old Age Pensioner.

Mutharika is a nepotist, a tribalist, a regionalist and highly corrupt. Being old age pensioner he cannot hear about the suffering of the poor. Better for him to go and go now as we have a competent and able Vice President. Mutharika for heavens sake go and go now.

no in fact there are hundreds of kalilanis who have no jobs in DPP! Also I am not sure what sort of nepotism this is? Kalilani is from central region and Mutharika is from Southern region! Have you noticed how the Kalilans are hard working people who love their country and like to be productive for Malawi? In fact this is not a party aligned appointment. This man has been in this job with the other presidents in the past! jealous yakutsekani maso! get objective and then you might decide to contribute you your country in a more constructive way!
