Reporter was very unprofessional.


So sad May Their Soul Rest In Erternal Peace

Happy Botha

How I wish the reporter stated more facts 1. How did the children find themselves all in the car 2. Can we assume its a family car? Car was stationary & unlocked ? Such good stories should be answering reasonable questions that may arise! I beg to move.


These are malawian reporters. Cashgate and political reporters


This sir is not a good story but rather a tragic one


This story doesn’t add up. Where was the car, at home? How did the children get into the car? So the parents didn’t even bother about the whereabouts of their children for 24 hours. Strange.


Man Chiko! your observations are quite clear,one can not understand how this happened,mmmm??
