Ngati izi ndi zowona kutidi Kondowe sakuzidziwa ndiye kuti he is a trust wealth man.
Koma mafunso anga ndi awa:
1. Kodi majid anayitenga kuti acoount number ya kondowe kuti iye akapange deposit ndalama ku account yo?
2.Kondowe anadziwa bwanji kuti ku account kwake kwalowa 2m? Ali pa sms alert service ya bank yo?

We need saints like Kondowe for Malawi to move forward osati makhuluku opotoza ma hand writing claiming to have alot of worth in the US.Anayiwelenga kuti the US would have been banging on his door for the tax transactions.Tamangonamizani mabulutu apa Malawi okonda kugwadira ndi kupembeza ma politicians for their survival.
