GILE, that’s how I get my life, I get these men who are obviously not satisfied with their wives in bed, who are longing for something that is missing in their homes to build me a beautiful home, run my business and that’s how I end up driving a high-end car, and life is beautiful, that’s how I get a life .

so you mean it will be only these people rotating and recycled to take up diplomatic posts? Malawi is full of rubish, if a husband is a minister expect a wife to be a diplomat or any hih ranking position, fuck this country of muggots!
