Where are the helicopters that Kamuzu,Muluzi and Bingu used to use. Pitala and his wife have been disturbing us a s motorists for some time now. Does it mean we are poorer than the Kamuzu Days. This is because dpp is busy stealing like Jeff wa Jeff says in her conversation with another thief Nankhumwa. What is cheaper to have a convoy of 21 vehicles and policemen lining up all the 320 km. We are a shithole country or we have a shithole leader.
