  8. I am from mchinji myself winning of MCP is not an issue only MCP shoud know by getting 4000 Votes out of 16000 thats what makes Dpp win presidency remember that MCP cant get such votes in phalombe. This is what always puts mcp on disadvantage when it comes to general elections

  9. I SAID IT AND I STILL SAY IT THAT WITHOUT RIGGING VOTES ON 14th May 2914, MCP would be my government administrators, points from unique Malawians still understands much better than these Ndataz.

    • What change in peoples life in economic and social life, has ur dumpy DPP racist government brought to Most Malawians?
      Answer is Holiday kadzanja to America
      Answer is corruption and nepotism
      Answer is no any plans for developing Malawi and Malawians, but rooting Malawi revenues
      Answer is only dividing opposition.
      Kwiya siukudziwa za Malawiyu ndi anthu ache,
      Mtshona kutsogerera eni ache mudzi, si izo tsopano?
      Wamanayo tayamba kubweretsa #Changezisinthe!

    • so you mean all the challenges which the country is facing is because of our beloved party? to me the the challenges,ithink,are because of high adult iliteracy level.we are worth in minerals such soil but you can see that most peaple who are engaging in agriculture are iliterate and facing very high losses due to climate change.so it’s dificult to develope malawi,remember the great depression which happened in USA after ww1,many goverments were overthrown due to this ecomic corrupse
