Do Malawians realize that the Burundi and Rwandese nationals that live in Malawi are actually perpetrators of the Rwandese Genocide that have fled for fear of retribution? Malawi is harboring criminals.

What about the role of Kagame in that genocide. By the way, how many people has Kagame killed since the end of the genocide?

In the USA, 2008 people have died of corona-virus in one day. In the UK 917 have died in one day. Across Europe the numbers are very high. The same is starting to happen in Latin America and parts of Asia. So we need to understand that corona-virus is not a JOKE. We should stop just blaming government. Lets do our part.

The countries you have mentioned have more cases than Malawi. Learn to appreciate other people’s work.

In addition, Malawi cannot quarantine people entering the country after its own judge, Kenyatta Nyirenda, ruled against that.

Compared with the countries you have mentioned, Malawi has fewer cases. So Malawi is doing better than those countries you admire. Stop politicizing this.
