Your extension doesn’t represent my views. To me and my experience, there was a huge difference between Kamuzu and MCP.

Looks like the burglars are testing if the defense is on it’s guard. Therefore, they decided to visit the Deputy Minister of Defence. That’s a message that some people are sleeping on their job . If was Chakwera I would have thought many times about the state of security in my country.
