Police must imvestigate if the girl found in her home mistriously or went on her own, look property distroyed some arrested because of her she must be also arrested.


Hilarious? Is that somebody`s name? This is hilarious! Some of these names are unbelivable!!


Its simple. The guy actual;ly took the girl to Lilongwe to cover himself. Such people, who are also in league with some scrupulous police bosses, must be locked up for good.

Well done girls for beating such human trafficking and kidnapping crime.

RAC and other organisations, since aboma ngachitsilu, must investigate.


Journalist, please tell us more on this because we heard she was texting her friends saying she was in that Mtuwas house. So which is which? We need details one by one.


I need her for a round as well
