Kalilani’s car crash near Jenda

Although details of the accident were still sketchy, Kalilani confirmed he  was out of danger and would be able to return to work immediately.

“I was travelling for official duties to Mzuzu and was in the company of my wife, Carol,” sadi Kalilani.

The presidential spokesman said  there is no need to worry as  he is in a stable condition.

“We sincerely thank the community around the accident spot. Police, health personnel and State House colleagues that came to help us,” he added.

Mgeme take care please. You are in the wrong direction. Komanso ngati simusamala mudzafa osauka. Umutsiyatu mwana wako Umunthu and sister for issue

Some are saying it is God punishing Mgeme for insulting Chakwera or the opposition. Some are looking at this accident as the work of the other DPP gurus who do not wish Mgeme well. Others are saying it is because he is an atheist. All these are just wishes of the opposition devils. Accidents are there to remain with us. Mgeme survived an accident and you say God is punishing him. What about Tenthani whose accident resulted into death? God loved him? These comments are the indications that anti-DPP DEVILS will not stop crying for spilt milk. The 2014 loss… Read more »

Tikukufunilani mafuno a bwino mbale Kalilani.


An accident is an accident, fellow Malawians let’s stop associating people’s accidents to witchcraft or staged accident always.
To my brother Mgeme Kalilani, God loves you brother Mgeme.
But if it is true that you don’t believe in Jesus nor the existence of God, then I plead with you brother Mgeme to immediately change your thinking.
This is God who has saved you from this fatal accident.

Dear Mgeme, Start soul searching now. You have demonized a lot of innocent lives. You have tarnished the image of many to the powers that be. It is high time you turned to God and repented. You have a loud mouth that is also a calculating liar. I hear you are an etheist, you are the funniest idiot that God ever created. Who the hell are you to think God does not exist. Do you then think that it is your devil that has saved your life in that accident. I want to know if empty bottles of Carlsberg lite… Read more »

Most Malawi roads were designed and constructed in the 70s, 80s and 90s for instance when road design/construction technologies were at their infancy as compared to those of today. For instance today’s design on curves for adequate super-elevation to counter centrifugal forces based on various parameters like speed, curve radius, curve length etc has improved tremendously. Most existing highways here Malawi were designed and constructed to design speeds of 80 km/hr and yet vehicles today operate at speeds exceeding 140 km/hr on an 80 km/hr road. As a result, accidents will invariably happen, notably on curves. I do not subscribe… Read more »
