as long as the information on the papers is correct, then the money is not fake…… according to one “Attorney General” Honourable Kalekeni Kaphale.

So funny. I am cracking with laughter 🙂

Clever and well thought.

Can someone tell Kaphale to come and read this?

Kaphale should now know that providing misleading information in courts to sound clever in defending the obvious will only set misleading precedence.

But according to the Attorney General’s argument on fake tally sheets during elections case, if the notes have RBM governor’s signature are not fake. Kikikiiii, poor souls in Malawi.
