  3. Eee , ””Mzipatala mulibe mankhwala, boma lalephera””’* Ndizimenezitu!!!! Vuto si Mutharika, kumpalume, Kalirani, Ntaba, Mpassu, Ntafu…..Muluzi…. Ai.. Kuba anthu ogwira ntchito konko!

  4. I dont think that will end so long as these people are paid less to support their lives n families. Drug stealing+few employed+less educated n experienced+low wages= poor health services+incompetent n uneager employees+ more death in hospitals.

    • Two wrongs do not sum up to right. Kuba ndi kuba. It is an offence. Salary ndi salary! We all sign employment agreement forms with conditions of services and renumerations. Stealing will never, never justify low wages/salary. Stealing is misconduct in civil service and bleach of one of ten commandments in the holy bible.

  5. Selfishness must die there……asabwelenso our country don’t need people lyk these we are already in trouble.
