I never think I will live long again and am so grateful to Dr sule who help me cured my HIV AIDS last 3 weeks. I was in a great pain so I told one of my best friends; he told me that there is a great spell caster that can cure my VIRUS. I asked him if he had his contact, he gave me his contactl, I contacted him he talked to me and he perform the necessary things and sent it to me through corrier delivery company and deliverd to me at my place and he told me that after two weeks I should go for a test. Which I did, when the doctor told me that am now a HIV negative I couldn’t believe myself I went to see another doctor the result was still the same, I was human on planet earth, so I emailed him and thanked him. Please if you are having a similar problem please visit him/contact him via whatsapp +2348162447651

  18. Aaaah you police be honest sometimes. Do you mean that police never use charcoal in your houses? Are you telling us that your job never uses charcoal? Police be serious sometimes, do you people work with enthusiasm? Why don’t you enforce your laws to those displaying thousands of bags of charcoal along Zalewa road and other charcoalized districts in malawi? Aaaaaah police be serious sometimes. Nde makala mwagwirawo mutani nawo? Muotchanso monga muchitira fodya wa Chamba?

  22. Nice work however we are waiting to hear that ur have destroyed them as you did with the ivory.Osalanda ndicholinga choti muzikaphikira.

  23. Charcoal burners share a 50-50 blame with Timber on deforestation but very unfortunate for the charcoal burners that they don’t contribute to the Forestry Officers personal shortfalls & that’s why they fall prey. Legal or illegal cutting down of trees have the same effect on the climate cos seedlings can not replace fully grown trees. It’s time Malawi started importing wood products & that’s if the ministry responsible & ourselves are really serious on adressing the devastating effects of climate change.

  24. Apolice muziona zomanga zake, nanga makala ndizithu zot muthu akagone ku ndende ? Simumava chisoni? Muthu akhale pabwino angamaonche makala mkumagulitsa? Mutavala zigoba ngati athu ovina ben choncho

  27. people in Malawi are selling charcoal due to poverty , hanger and no job creation .If you don’t have brother in police, army,heathy, education and other posts, have no opportunity.Infact : oppression, corruption is in climax in Malawi.

  32. Well done. It is a worrysome the way the forestry resources are being depleted in Liwonde & Zomba Malosa forest reserves. The beauty scenery of the reserve along Liwonde – Zomba road is vanishing. I hope such forest joint patrols will continue for benefit of the country. But the section quoted is wrong possibly section 68(1) a,b of forestry Act of 1997
