  1. For your own information the first lady comes from khwisa

  2. I wonder if really the Govt of Peter MUthalika has a good welfare of people at heart. Why always being nepotistic when sharing the Govt developmental cake? Dwangwa- Nkhotakota -Salima Road has been there killing people’s relations for a quite number of year and Govt reaps a lot of MRA taxes thru the same potholed road! Why NOT reconstruct it ? Nkk has its own small beaches but more visitors shun going there cause of the state of the road. Please .Please Your Excellency do something on this road.
    May had it been it was a southernery road could have been on the political list of being maintained?
    Your concerned citizen of travelling.
