Education is just a process of living in life you can study engeneering but sometimes u might find yourself being business manager one day so don’t judge others so quick, do some reseach about this

alick fwaya nkhatabay boy

I want to read the book first and am very happy coz nkhatabay veterns are also icluding like aleke kadona phanda banda orton chirwa and kadondo


The boy is okey and is dreaming in color although he is a water resource which I believe will not help him much because it seams he is focusing on other fields…………

I have not read the book but I believe he has read and made reference to other literatures and did thorough research on the same.
Good job boy keep it up.


When smone does good we have to appreciate so Mfana keep up!!!!!

This is the beginning young man. By the way, do seek wisdom and guidance from big Malawian writers and historians like DD Phiri, Steve Chimombo, Emily Mkamanga and others. Congrats
What became of Bingu’s book which was extravagantly launched at the AU in Addis Ababa and here at home. I remember the Mullis, the Mota Engels bidding millions for it. Are our Universities using it?


Herve, you can as well contact him. Can’t you?

Hervé Cheuzeville, you must be very stupid or colonial in mind. Who should contact who??

You could have written a book based on your field of specialisation. You are doing water resource management, why writing on politics and history where you are obviously less informed? Anyway, its a challenge worth taking.
