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.

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.

Last year the Prime Minister of Israel flew into NY the same day he addressed the UN General Assembly and flew back to Israel the same day in the evening. Our President will address the General Assembly towards the end of next week but he’s already in NY. What is he going to do all these days. A clear indication that our president has no serious business in state house. How else can one explain his roaming NY streets all these days under the pretext that he will have more engagements with world leaders. A poor country like Malawi can… Read more »

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 »
