  1. Guys tazilankhulani chichewa na nagari mukudziwa kuti mawu omwe mufuna kulankhulawo kapena Ku posita pankhope yam’bukuli muyiphike bwino nkhani yanu sikuti izi mwanena apazi

  2. I saw the incident with my eyes, it was an emgcy landing at nkk old airport and up to date it is still there.

  3. Pane crash -lands? The second part is clear. Plane crash land, not a “dash” and plural “lands.” Because it is as if it’s a verb somehow.

  4. Wake up friends, seriously open wide ur eyes, when ever u see a plane like that flying around in Malawi, call th game reserve department immediately, these guys ar poachers, they’re there for Rhinos, they Kno that its so easy to kill Malawi’s Rhinos bcoz there’s no even a single security in Malawi’s game reserves.

    These guys ar running away from south Africa to that side, they started long tym, the Rhinos ar dying that side, I’ve got some white friends who always talk about Malawi’s Rhinos, they Dont pass through airports bt they use their own farm planes & helicopters, to fly wth them without being searched, remember, 1 Rhino horn z too much teleshede, am serious.

  5. It Sims u dont now hw 2 use eng words very wel mukayambireso sch form 1 bcoz u hav bn usin’ words dat don’t suit 2 de scen eg;

  9. This plane didn’t crash. it was jst an emergency landing. Don’t confuse pipo. (plane crash lands in nkhotakota) wat doz it min? Doz it mean it Crashed then landed ……………ha ha haa

    1. Dictionary meaning “to land (an aircraft), under circumstances in which a normal landing is impossible, in such a way that damage to the aircraft is unavoidable.”
