So you want to tell us that there is no space to include even a single photo for the guest of honour?

The last picture where it shows a B747 in Malawi Air Malawi colours should not be there. That was a chartered flight used by Kamuzu on long trips to the UK. Its something we should not be proud of at least Kwacha the B737 would have been ideal. Other than that if you didn’t cross his path which unfortunately one would eventually, just if they crossed paths with the Tembos’ he will be remembered.

Malawi will never economically develop. How can she develop economically when she is critically mentally ill? At this age and time she is remembering an imposter dictator who ruled her with an iron fist. Malawians are expecting you politicians to develop this country. Why are we wasting out with useless things? I expected Chakwera to change the politics of Malawi but oh boy I was wrong. Malawi sazatheka.

Let’s respect Kamuzu indeed. He was the father and founder of the Malawi nation, even God The Almighty is aware of this. He shall still be remembered in the History of Malawi, come what may.

May His soul rest in peace.
