  1. zachibwana zanuzo plz spare lomwe tribe sikuti mukakuta muzilimbana ndi alomwe bwanji??? kukhala lomwe ndichifukwa? mukasowa mfundo its better to be silent rather than fueling tribalism….we all malawians wheter yao ngoni mtumbuka lomwe etc we belong to moter malawi….ndikupusa kumalimbana ndi alomwe mwamva??

    1. malawi is not being ruled by lomwe as tribe but only a person from lomwe tribe and infact he is a malawian. Malawi as a country does not belong to any tribe…is for us all whether lomwe, yao ngoni, tumbuka, sena etc are malawians and we need to respect each other…mtundu onse wa alomwe usanyozedwe just coz one of us is a president…all challenges faced in this country are affecting everyone including lomwe…blackout is for all, drug shortage is for all,and what have u…dont treat lomwes as we are not suffering together with other tribes….if our attitude will be that of sidelining other culture malawi will not be abetter place for us all…kukhala mulomwe kusakhale chitonzo kwa wena…palibe mtundu wa anthu mdziko muno omwe uli more superior than the other…no one tribe which is more intelligent than the other….tiyeni tikone45d5i89op[]
