Nsundwe generation. The wisdom of chewa elders. Violence. Suicide. Killing of innocent women suspected of witchcraft. Zamanyazi kaganizidwe ka achewa. Even Lazaro Chakwera, mkwiyo is written all over his face. Shame.

This is the problem of not having a proper Land policy, proper Land records.
Mafumu akhala akugulitsa malo kwa anthu obwera, amene ali ndi ndalama leaving Malawians without land.
Unscrupulous employees at Ministry of Land have been selling one plot to two or even three different people, faking Title Deeds.
This needs to be addressed urgently.
Put in place a proper Centralized Land records System to curb this fraud

This is not fraud – just attempts at land grabbing.

Am not supporting what those people did but it could have been fair if heard part of their story also, the problem in Malawi is poor people don’t have a say always u only listen to them during campaign for general elections

Ntchito za Timothy Mtambo zayamba kumuchitira umboni. Lilongwe walero ndiameneyo. Mtambo replaced dialogue with violence and this is what Malawi especially Central Region and Northern Region shall reap. Next time we shall hear that Mtambo’s house is on fire….and that shall be a good development so that Mtambo should know how violence feels like.

The seeds of violence were sown in our youths and society. We have a very unpredictable citizenry.Dont even try to reason with the Msundwe generation otherwise you lose both property and life

Bentby from Chigunda Dwangwa

we can’t be talking about 1 million job with these savages. H.E Chakwera need to step up and draw a line against this primitive actions. the culprits needs to be arrested slapped with strong punishments. this must stop, its not good for our labour force, its not good for potential investors…..

Pure madness. Surely a few people from the village benefit from this place in terms of employment. Tourists or visitors are meant to feel safe. You would not want people trespassing whatever differences you have. Send them to jail.
