This stupid Mthalika should not have been Malawi’s president in the first place.

Asilamu Nkhondo

Bring Scottishyard from there


the man is too old to learn. Nothing pleased our president! He was just wondering what on earth a leader could be brought that low. Our friends are ruled by leaders with integrity and they have nothing to hide. We need a game changer in Malawi and that’s Chakwera. That’s the only way forward!!!!

The Parliament where our man can go to is this one, not Westminster in the heart of London. It was only Kamuzu who had the calibre to set his feet on Westminster and address the British Parliament. No matter what you do, you will never match Kamuzu, you are too small (kuchepera kaba). Anzanu ndi awo akuyankha mafunso, paja inu mumazemba, kuopa chibwibwi m’gulu mwa anthu and yet we hear you are a professor. Professor saopa kulankhula kapena kuyankha mafunso.


Kuno kwathu apulezi wo amaopa kudzafunsidwa mafunso mantha akatsakamwe ndi mafunso munfuse Jacob Zuma pa South Africa pa ankapita nthawi iliyonse kukayankha mafunso popanda kuopa kalikonse


All our political leaders fear to be put on the spot and answer questions. APM dodges that. Akakhala Chakwera ndi uyu wathawa kukankha mafunso ku khothi. No way he can stand and answer questions in parliament.


Mukakhala ku Malawi ndiye kukana kupita Ku parliament kukayankha mafunso. Kodi muaona ngati azunguwo mukuwanamiza and sadziwa?


Black man has no sense of self-respect!
