Kkkkkkkkk. Kodi atcheya achira msana? Obviously hoping kuti DPP ikawina with Atupele being vice president basi malandu watha? Koma yeeeeessss! I doubt it though. Ma judge a pa Malawi awonetsa kuti chilungamo ndi chilungamo basi’tu. Ngati bwana Mr Atcheya Bakili Muluzi munaba or simunabe, the courts must still look at your case and judge it against its merit. Interestingly a poor local villager akaba nkhuku amamangidwa mwamsanga-msanga. Atcheya akaba ma billion, ayi ndithu – mpakana 20 years asanalowe mkhoti. Selective justice?

Good people. Bakili was the worst president in the world. He was inept and very corrupt. Most of the local companies were sold under his watch. That is why he is still answering corruption charges today. How can a patient recently evacuated treatment in South Africa campaign for political party? DPP instead of helping the many stranded Malawians in South Africa chattered a plane just for him. As a patient and using our taxpayers money he should be ashamed to campaign for DPP. Rumour has it that he corruptly gave land to Petroda for Petroda House and his son for… Read more »

MCP will have to be ruthless in its criticism of Bakili Muluzi’s corruption and misrule otherwise Muluzi is capable of introducing confusion amongst Malawians. Bakili Muluzi is the father and mother of the corruption, tribalism, regionalism and nepotism that we now see in Malawi. A bad rotten egg Muluzi.

Bakilil single handedly introduced corruption in Malawi. He found a beautiful country with good infrastructure (hospitals, electricity, water, roads, a strong Kwacha to name a few) but starting with him, then the Mutharika’s you have run the country into the ground. So a BIG NO. It is not in the best interests of the people of Malawi to be governed by these same 2 families. News flash for the older Muluzi. Malawi of 1994 is not the same Malawi you want to talk to today. People listened to you then, but have since seen the devastating damage you have done… Read more »
