This is more than STATE CAPTURE.. Malawi has conmen in government making deals well-known crooks & MONEY-LAUNDERERS in town to defraud and loot the VERY POOR nation they claim to govern.. Akaba chonchi ma crooks akukanamizila kupanga donate ati za NAMAZANE, kuputsitsa anzanthu a chisilamu.
In essence, they are into money laundering. Kenako kumapita ku khoti ati PALIBE mlandu.
In South Africa such crooks are fugitives (Guptas), on the run, but ka dziko kosauka ngati Malawi we are protecting MBAVA.
