Malawians,when are you going to stop jealousies which have destroyed our Nation? The hatrade I have seen against the Northerners,emanates from senseless jealousies that even led to bloody-bullshit QUATA SYSTEM which had made us a loughing-stock of AFRICA beyond our borders.You will be astonished to be informed that Malawians in diaspora,put their hope on UTM and S.CHILIMA’S brilliant leadership standing.In fact,Chilima comes next to the first Ministers of independence in our country.Malawians of goodwill,we have been crying for able leadership,here we are,we have found the Orton Chirwas,Kanyama Chiumes,Henry Chipemberes,Dunduzu Chisizas,Willy Chokanis,Augustine Bwanausis,Rose Chiwambos and Yatuta Chisizas.Not only Malawians in diaspora… Read more »

LL-KU road section its in a very bad state,almost every month we are losing lives of our citizens here, just a reminder we lost a prominent DPP politician here and today its their supporters. i dont want to remind you of the Tanzanian bus taqwa,myself, and many more who have been involved in avoidable accidents on this road. as much as i appreciate the kind gesture to the bereaved from our president but i feel that stil leaves a gap because he may not come to console each and every family involved in accidents before and after. it would ease… Read more »

The driver was speeding like a rocket. He passed us doing at least 140kpm.
The vehicle had no number plates front or back. No insurance sticker. Four men clinging to the back. It’s a miracle anyone survived. Let’s be honest – this reeks of impunity. Even the new bright blue party vehicle that arrived after the mess was cleaned up had no number plates . Set the proper example and help avoid chaos and further lives lost.

The vehicle had no number plate, therefore not road worthy! You traffic officers, why are you sleeping in the line of duty? And you the journalist, how did you know its Reg. Number as I doubt if these vehicles are insured! Kkkkk

AGAIN!!!
This is the same stretch where Kudomtoni met his fate! He died while involved in road accident while driving a Toyota fortuner. Drivers drive with extra care along Madisi – Bus Road block stretch!

Very sad development. Life shall always remain precious regardless of whose life it is. May their souls rest in eternal peace and wishing the injured God’s favour and speedy recovery.
