Unfortunately we cant postpone elections as presently the country has no president. The acting president days expired (60) on April 3, 2020.This problem will be tackled after July 2. Fortunately sufferers get cured without proper medicine 14 so far.25% rate not bad!!!

It appears everytime NTCHONA sees red, covid-19 cases goes up. Only hope for him to try and run away from judgement day. Only down side for him this time is DZANJA LALEMBA KALE KHOMA.

This is a shame, why not give PPE to these health workers? Why should it take strikes and infection before government provides some protective wear for the dangerous work being undertaken here.

I am just waiting for my friends Mkhwezalamba and Chodzi to go to court to stop the elections. If they haven’t learnt anything from the Supreme Court judgement they will never learn at all. The ones that are sending you will not pay for court charges, APM has been ordered to pay from his pocket, not from our money anymore. Watch out, don’t be fooled by politicians.The injunction you planning to get will easily be vacated. Don’t follow the footsteps of HRDC – Trapence and team had a strong case to apply for an injunction to stop the lockdown.

These thugs are doing everything to make sure that elections are not held.Unfortunately, sane Malawians will not stomach nonsense. The elections are too far away. Let’s vote first and then revert to the pandemic. No matter why you will do, majority of Malawians (50%+1) want elections except for 38% that don’t want it.

Japie Mhango is really having a good time announcing Covid 19 cases. The larger the number affected the more he gloats. Have you, by the way, introduced quarantine facilities at entry points? Because some of us think you deliberately let through track drivers, after taking their particulars so that they infect more people to suit your diabolic strategies for deferring the coming 9 July 2 fresh election.
