I want to differ with one Hinya that most of the cash gate culprits are from the north. Is Lutepo from the north? Is Leaonard Kalonga from the north? Is Phwiyo from the north? Is Wyson Dzinyemba from the north? Is Maxwell Namata from the north? Is Gofrey Dzanjalimodzi from the north? Is Caroline Savala from the north? Is Sithole from the north? Was late Treaser Senzani from the north? Please lets sober up when we are commenting on issues. Lets use facts not emotions and or regional hatred.

Mr. Nansongole is not Lhomwe. Being a Malawian you should know that there are a good number of Yaos in Chiradzulu.
