  8. Anawo anali ndi magazi ochepa kale ndipo analinso asanayambe kuwathandiza anthu mumachulusa zokamba mukadwala madotolo ake amakuthandizani ndi omwewa nde mukuwanyozeranji

  9. the twins have died due to the inavailability of blood(group O rhesus negative which is scarce) before surgery NOT during the operation! it seems anthu ambri mukungo commenter osawelenga nkhaniyi bwinobwino…

  10. Amayi pepani ámálawi enafe tinabwadwa oģwirá ntchito anaĺi omwewa mpaka pano tiĺi nďimoyo añakamwalira ķu uķ simukanatokota chonchi shame palibe munthu amapanga moyo only god emweyo atothoze banja loferedwa i proud to be malawian

  11. Eish,,we don’t have enough equipment in malawi for serious operation,on top of that the doctors are not often dealing with kind of operation that need well trained doctors

    • its nt the doctors’ fault. the operation did not take place sir & this was because of blood (group O rhesus ,negative which is scarce)..the babies died of cardiac failure due to severe anaemia (don’t trust this site

  12. Tipaone bwino bwino pamenepa amafuna ayesele kwa anthu timayesela kwa zinyama. Izi zimayenela kunja izi akanakhala mwana wa munthu wa m,boma bwezi ataba za misonkho yathu kupita kunja koma popeza ndi osauka mwapha osalakwa musamale

    • nt the doctors fault cause anawo amwalira cfukwa cha severe anaemia before the operation…and the blood that was required is O- which is scarce…so maybe MBTS fault

  13. Bwanji osatumiza kunja? Inayamba itakhalapo successful operation yoteleyi kumalawi? Mmafuna muyeselepo chifukwa ndi wosauka.koma the gvt spends millions on nkhalamba zofa kale

    • I don’t understand wen u say “nobody ever deserve to die” bra, death is there, wheather we like it or not, the pair u ar talking about was just lucky, just like here in Malawi, there’s also another pair somewhere that survived the same operation, wat if the operation of that pair u ar talking about was a failure, do u think pipo of that country would stand on top of the mountain and accuse the doctors of incompetency?, its a complicated operation we ar talking about here, its life or death

    • these twinz deserved to die than leave a miserable life, Im against this part coz once you are born,you deserve to live regardless of your physical ability.Its only in our country where everything is awkward.I dont mean we wont die but circumstances sorrounding your death is what we are talking about here.Sorry my grammar is not ok…english is not my language.

    • Nyapapi iwe bakha tokhwetokhwe kaligondwe gokhwiro iwe wandikiya kwambiri,,They deserve to die.what if those innocent children you were the father and someone saying those how would you feel ? instead of feeling sorry for those innocent soul because of poor management in the hospitals of Malawi and what you to know is that when the doctors want to take a serious operation that they always make sure that every thing is set ,not as what they are saying blood shortage…Poor malawian we will always be killed as cockcroaches ,,these greedy politicias are out there enjoying with their families our on money not donating for this operation to done by experts who know their work not these trainees…Am really ANGRY with you for your heartless words *#-+ Mtumbo wako matongo ako uli ndi ana koma iwe ?mwina umadya maliro eti?? Gojo iwe umakudziwa kubala ?? Mutu ndi machende ongodzadza ndi MAMINAwo moreover Machende amako galu iwe kuzolowera kumwa magazi eti nde upite ukatenge matupi a anawo ungochita ka Braai ukhwasule munthu opanda chisoni Phwala lako mboli yako Olivian Oliva Twist Pagone …

  14. Stupidity is writing your comment based on recent comments or based on a story of some headless chicken of a journalist, who said the kids died cuz of an operation cuz they were not operated… I repeat, the operation did not take place.

  15. Maybe its Gods plan,this is the first case in our country.if God says tdy is ur tym to die ,no matter hw many qualified doctors are infront of u,but u wil surely die bcoz its ur tym
