Kodi ignorance ku Malawi idzatha? We Malawians here in the UK chose to be here and trust me life is much better here. No matter what you say deep ddown you would rather be here than where you are now so just shut up you ignorant git! This is a civilized country and nobody but nobody cares how you earn your living as long as its legal. Ndi anthu osauka ngati inu , ambuli ngati inu amene mumanyoza other peoples jobs. Takhalani konko muzibvutika you deserve it !
