  15. What’s the chief saying on this. This act sometimes does not give you respect. We r suspicious on what you have done to Chiwaya. Have you sold this woman’s land or else, what. If not you have to tell Chiwaya what it takes to be a human being. In what Party are you inn Chiwaya? do you have party leaders, are they literate? Think twice. Inu kulanda malo mzimayi ndiye mumati akanakusekelerani? akanakutchulani mngelo? munayenera kutchulidwa mfiti, chiphazi, demon, sadamu, Idi Amin, Adolf Hitler ndi ena otere. You deserve that.

  18. I hate dis dog wat u called chiwaya wat he knows is drinking beer n womanizing…….if I would have a gun I should kill u barstad

  19. Wina aliyese amene amalanda ayeni ,pamakhala chinthu chimozi chimene amadalila monga akakasuma ine ndikahonga(chuma) akakatokota ndikankhoma (hamala) maiyu sanalakwe chifukwa ndichemene wawona iye kuti maniwa akudalila uthakati,Apolice ntuluseni maiyo akasamale ana ake ,ndiufulu wake kuteteza malo ake ,ndili ine olo chikwanje chikanaoneka

  20. A malawi Kodi chilungamo mwabisa ndi malamulo?

  21. Idont trust this media…After all nkhani ya malo its everywhere in all the courts across the country all because of overpopulation.. ..We hv cases where some people in some districts are even pushing for rellocation of District Council offices claiming malowo ndi amakolo awo afuna azilimapo….All what am trying to say is because of overpopulation everyone is panic about land issue.. so this woman cant be spared…Mr chiwaya is a decent man and can not sacrifice his position as an mp inthe coming 2019…. For those of u who dont know ku mangochi central he commands respect hence he doesnt hv areplacement who can match mr chiwaya….

    • Sizikugwirzana akulu b soba minded in mw we dont want oppressors and anthu ngat achiwaya akumapeza mita yozuza athu coz cha mbuli ngati inu blind loyalty tawelengaso pa milandu amusegulila mayiyo ngati pali wokhuza za malo no mata how strong n popular he z bot as a leader samayenela kutero av u eva been arrested?????

    • Dafenately… Unless u tell me mr Chiwaya grabbed land from the woman then Ican side with this woman…Yes the charges could be due to her reaction bt if Hon. Chiwaya has wronged the woman why cant she file up an application @ the court….To me issues of land one can not make conclusion based on listening from one side or just because someone is shading tears..No….Its acommon issue these days akagulitsa malo ndalama ikatha mkuona ogulayo akuchitapo develop mtima wa msanje umayamba…This is practical in malawi…So Yes blind loyalty because Idont judge issues based in morale or what majority are saying….bt rather getting deep into genesis of the story….

    • Decent man akakanike kukhululuka??? Awadi ndi che Yassin basi… Case iyi ikuchita kuonekeratu kuti Chiwaya ali pa khate nde mkona wakomza kapamsi kuti mmayiyo amangidwe awopsezedwe ndi polisi kenako azitaye bt sizabwino Imagine mayi wamangidwayo akadakhala mai ako ukadamva bwanji? This Malawi is still poor couz there is still people who got Nyasaland brains. This is part ov MW culture iwe galu, iwe mbuzi’ iwe mfiti, choka apa iwe chitsilu, awa ndiwo mayina omwe timatchurana tikakwiyitsana even you Yassin, you can agree with me bt have you ever seen winawake akukasuma pa nkhani ngati izizi? So why this man? The answer is that akufuna polisi imuthandize kukhala kumbuyo kwake pa izizi zowonekeratu kuti zalakwikazi. In Sha Allah Mulungu azakhara judge day one and palibe yemwe azaponderezedwe tsoka lili kwa uyo wa mphamvu zotsala pamsi pano.

    • Can u read this story on nyasatimes and then compare to this article…Iquite agree with u guys the misuse of power on the side of the Hon.Speaker cannot be ruled out.However, unless we hear the otherside of the story then we can be in aposition to take astand…. .and in acourt of law judgements are not made based on favouring on who shades the most tears….No…Hon.Chiwaya knows the implications of getting ur voters arrested…..

    • Iyayi si zoopa koma kukamba mwatchutchu Chiwaya akufuna kalunda kuchokela kwa mphawi,wakahonga ku police kuti amangidwe komanso aopsyezedwe ndicholinga choti chiwaya atenge malowo poti ni nduna komanso wachuma,koma akuiwala kuti osauka ndi amene anamukomela mtima pomunsankha kuti afike pali iyepo,koma nthawi izakwana

  28. Chiwaya are you mad ? We didn’t elected u to steal from poor pple but to help them, thus y we will never voted you to rural Malawi again bcoz of you had hearts.leave the poor woman alone

A Word 2 U Mr Clement Chiwaya “u Crimbed High By De Scafford Of The Pple, Now U Wax Urself With Wings Be Careful With Heat…. What A Cruel,shameful And Unsympathetic Politician !!!

  33. If Mr. Speaker stand his roots on arresting(laying charges) upon this woman he is definitely a full grown “Wizard” I repeat he should take responsibility of his action towards the citizens.

  34. osalanda malo kwa amphawi kamba koti muli mchuma mukanakhala ndiziwalo zokwaniratu mukanavuta inu ngati mukulanda minda muli chikhalire nanga mukanayenda mukanalanda ya anthu angati ? Bwenzani munda kwa mwini

  35. There will be always a difference bwtn the rich and the poor.Honourable Deputy Speaker must humbly leave the land that belongs to the poor woman and buy another one

  36. Those of you that have followed this story must have facts. Chiwaya started building his filling station a long time ago. When Kampira approached Chiwaya on land issue Chiwaya asked her to consult the people who sold the land to both parties to resolve the issue because the buyers would not manage to solve the problem. That’s when Kampira a common prostitute at Maldeco started calling Chiwaya names. It’s unfortunate that people want to tarnish our mp who we love a lot for his humility. You should see Chiwaya when he is in his constituency. The fact that he holds a position in society people should not insult him. He has his dignity
