  1. malawian courts. are so poor at making decisions,,I guess these are the same judges who approved of burning the Ivory instead of finding a way of using the materials in a positive way

  2. Ma court akumalawi ndiokàikisa momwe amapangira ziganizo zawo..!! Osangondipatsa ine bawa-yo bwanji olo ikanakhala ya expire ndkanaona kut ndipanga bwanji..!! Kufuna kutukwanidwa etiii…..

  3. … useless cruel magistrate..! these people were arrested and given a community service as their punishment. so destruction of their commodities is a double punishment for a single crime committed, was it not fit for consumption? were they expired? … charge the magistrate for office abuse……..
