the TRUTH of the matter here is that the winner of this election is not this one they are congratulating NO NO look at other African countries for one to understand. THE PEOPLE of Malawi are the winner in that failure to perform may draw their wrath. that is absolutely crucial in a democracy. anything short of the genuine will of the people is nothing short of a satanic manifestation of human evil spirit. overally the Malawians need to reflect on the seed of education planted by Dr Hastings Kamusu Banda. The country has very many medical doctors over and above a very big population of enlightened people! others may rather keep an ignorant manipulation prone poverty stricken jobless bunch of extremely dangerous followers deployed as appropriate during political cake sharing.

Let Mr museven learn from what has happened in Malawi. The same wave may happen in Uganda in case the law is not followed during the forthcoming election. Remember a hungry man is angry. Covid 19 has changed the thinking of the people, so the wound may burst.
