This is absolute idiocy by MCP supporters. Seizure of imported goods is common at MRA! They have good reasons for that, why not ask them to speed up the process if the container has stuff that is required immediately?
What has this to do with party supporters? Why all this interest? Who gathered the innocent supporters to the industrial area, Kanengo? For what?
You people keep surprising us. Are these really T-shirts that people should die for?

@phillips wangs: @Peace is NOT ignorant about Malawi politics, as you put it.
He’s just frustrated by ignorant people who put their lives on the line for issues they simply do not understand. In other ways, the overzealous and less informed are used by the biggies, worse than a ganyu.

If don’t live in Malawi just shut-up. Come to Malawi and the moment you arrive at the border/airport that’s when you will get to know the nyusensi called MRA. If they were professional , I wouldn’t have a problem. If they were impartial, no problem. Unfortunately them and their police friends are not. Osamayikila kumbuyo zopusa. Otherwise nanuso ndi opusa.

Why impounding MCP T-shirts when DPP don’t pay for all the imported party goods? Check with MRA. DPP goods come in the name of the president or the first lady who are tax exempt and the t-shirts, bicycles get released pompopompo wi5hout paying a single kwacha.. Wake up Malawi!
