I don;t see anything wrong with the photo. She is not naked as you are portraying her. It is a dress code for netballers. Malawians umbuli kuchuluka zedi.

No, all of us like, actually love (non-romantic) Mwawi. But this is just disgraceful. Is she running a brothel in Australia? She is our ambassador, high profile for that matter. Akusowa chani in life to disgrace herself like this? She can call for a man olo osasamba from back home, azamusambitsa for a partner, mot this. Shame!
