Someone said that its time now that the President of the Republic of Malawi His Excellency Dr Lazarus Chakwera should sign a death sentence penalty because of such stupid issues taking place in different places of Malawi. Kill the murder immediately after proven guilty by reputable court. This is too much now.DISO KU DISO element. You are giving too much jobs to hospital personnel instead of concentrating on other deaceses
