  1. Me wonder of this years lightening is killing two two. Does it means it hate people who are two? I remember here at THYOLO it was heard that two children were dead. Them we heard that a daughter to Muluzi and her friend were also dead. At mikombe T/A Ngolongoliwa it heard twice if not three times. Here at Luchenza a Husband and Wife we fainted leaving a young healthy. Eesh!
