Mr president you have done well to stop these weekly briefings as you were becoming unpopular on each week you deliver your speech. You were exposing yourself too much and that gave chance to your detractors to punch holes into your personality and administration. You were being hanged by public opinions. Exit Chakwera enter apongozi ( Kampondeni) as he has announced he is resuming his weekly briefings.

After 50 plus years of independence and to still be in this group it’s a shame. Malawi needs to be on crush development program. We need to set a prosperity path that the future generations will always remember of what this generation did. Thus taking Malawi from the depth of poverty to the peak of prosperity.

Malawians need to clean their conscience to reach a goal. Most Malawians are double faced and you will never process as a person or a country.

Least Developed Countries (LDCs). The other definition and category would be countries with people with an IQ of lice.
