Colourful qualifications BUT the problem here is the appointing authority in Malawi always uses such bright minds for their crooked ways.

I used to respect this brilliant guy, I don’t know much now if I’m still doing that since the finger that has pointed him has a half nail,might be just used to facilitate the other side of the finger to cover a half nail, if not be careful this guy is gone ( swallowed )by the same finger that has appointed him. The end of Mzati Mkolokosa.

Mzati is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Cruel person. He can do anything for money. Cadet to boot. And bootlicker.
