“We are here for Malawians. Malawians should be encouraged that they have an opportunity to speak to their leaders through Zodiak Broadcasting Station.
“We have an obligation to speak for Malawians yes but Malawians themselves who are feeling the pain, those who are happy with other things, those that feel some things are not being well handled…Those Malawians should speak for themselves,” remarked Chakhaza.
