  3. Bwana Chaponda

    do the abused people of people of Malawi, go down with at least three who are large scale thieves. we will appreciate your departure better that way.

  4. I said it once that the State President is the REFEREE of those honourable men in HIS CABINET!! AND I CONGRATULATED THE STATE PRESIDENT FOR THE STRONG WARNING STATEMENT HE SAID WHEN THE CHIEF SECRETARY AND OTHERS WERE SWEARING AT KAMUZU PALACE IN LILONGWE! I, therefore still-more ask the State President as the “REFEREE” to seriously stick or stand to his WORDS in order to save the country’s wealth from the GLUTTONOUS AND DISRESPECTIFUL SERVANTS OF THE MALAWI NATION WHOSE AIM IS TO SATSIFY THEMSELVES AND LEAVING THE POOR PEOPLE IN RURAL AREAS SLUMBERING! REMEMBER THAT IT’S THE MALAWI NATION THAT VOTED FOR YOU AND THAT YOU OWE THEM A LEGACY AT THE END!

  5. Too late damage already done. Chaponda has already doctrined his regionalism and tribalism ideology in DPP government. He left many corrupt friends behind to provide him some tenders

  6. Fired?On what grounds? If all this has to do with corruption then the presedent must also order the Malawi Police to lock him up. Akuyenera kupita ku Maula basi ndipo makiyi amu cell yake akataidwe mu Lingadzi kuti apite madzi ama floods

  7. For those on Free Data.
