Mukisa Emmanuel, i dont really know what yu mean by Malawi FC, if the FC is for Football Club, i thnk thats not a proper name, unless if yo national team plays like a football club. I’m also surprised by the people who refer to the Flames as Frames don’t yu know the difference between a flame of fire and a window or door frame? chirungu chenyu varume, chakaoma
