Not surprised.The guy is behind land wrangles involving Bottom Hospital and Simama.He bull dozed papers be awarded to Simama. So too has tax invasion issues with MRA and govt gave him an option to face the law or realign himself with DPP to avoid the wrath of the law.


That makes sense

He is a useless PHD holder.

It is really stupid decision that someone has to make after a Cash in, OK well good luck for your own benefit.

Aise Bikoko we kno the reasons for ur defection. U have been involved in so many fraudulent activities and u are owing MRA over 15million in taxi evasion so u think the best way to escape this is to join dirty dpp which has become a safe home for fraudsters, thieves and thugs. No wonder Uladi Mussa who is answering charges relating to aiding or facilitating issuing of malawian passports to foreigners is contemplating to rejoining the thieves club. U should kno that MCP ikatenga boma 2019 ino all these will haunt u. Mark my words. Ask Reuben Ngwenya I… Read more »

What is the working definition of Government? We seem to be misguided by mixing ruling party and government. Government includes opposition and all development is done by Parliament do not hide personal agendas behind terms such as government

MCP was frustrating the guy that he should not develop the city in the administration of DPP. Bikoko looked at this idea as very stupid and unhelpful to the community. The people who voted for him will be asking for what he has done in the next campaign. What will he point at if Chakwera is barring him from working with DPP admin? If Chalamanda was MCP he would not achieve anything in the city of BT because Chakwera would not allow him to work with govt. Yes, MCP councilors and members made him mayor for a purpose but unfortunately… Read more »

Santana! You have a rotten head, you think in upsidedown way, how can mcp frustrate your Bikoko! The truth of the matter is that Bikoko has accumulated heavy MRA debts not rubbishes you are talking. Why dont you shutup your dirty mouth since cashgate has swallowed you? Nature will deal with you for sure because you always run away from the truth to appease your evil masters


I have never seen a stupid person like you Mr Santana.You are such a wasted sperm.

nanunso asantana ndale zanu zanyansi kwambiri? Do you have evidence to what you are saying? If he is gone into government, who was he close to? Awansooooooooooooooooooo!! Ambuyanuwo akugona nyumba yomanga bola la chipani chiti? Capital Hill buildings za chipani chiti? All this will better be concluded in 2019, and I pray God should take us thru to there!! Mr Malefula District Chairperson for Zomba (MCP) was as pompous as you are and ended up hanging himself chifukwa chokonda chipani mochita nazo khungu, kulephera ndi kuona zina zoofooka zomwe chipani chikuchita!! And your overzealousness shows that you seem to have… Read more »
