Look at him. Gallivanting again when his country is in economic turmoils. Why not send Chilima to minimise costs and the huge entourage which you always take on your globetrotting.

What type of a father who is always travelling when the family has no food, no money in schools, no medicine in hospitals just to mention a few.

this man is a disgrace to the nation and has failed the Malawi nation.

That picture of Mathanyula is not flattering at all. It just validates how retarded he is.. The pants are too short like his brain. When he comes back he will tell us that he had ” high level meetings” with nothing to show for…… my foot! dzuka Malawi dzuka we need a revolution! adzafikire panja Mathanyula!!!!!!


I hear that during such trips the chiefs and party loyalists and others who have no role to play whatsoever during the meeting are treated as Presidential Guests. What it means is that their accommodation will be paid for by taxpayers money but they will also be given allowances while the poor civil servants who have travelled on duty will only be paid allowances to cater for food and accommodation.

I have been seriously thinking that the demise of APM would bring in a big change to our beloved Malawi. Logically, if he dies today’ several million lives will be better off. What’s the point of having one stupid professor ruin the country and economy; wellbeing of humanity mass; not to mention the killings he execute (ACB high ranking officer, poor uni student and so on). Wake up Malawi. This scam bag has to go; and he will go to hell be rest assured. Let us not be completely brainwashed by this useless fucking professor who did not make it… Read more »
