    • Ni mimi says:

      It’s because God with love made us that way. And we love it by the way, I wouldn’t want to be any other color.

    • Midori says:

    • Doreen Esther says:

    • Doreen Esther says:

      Thùy Linh Pham, do you even know you skin colour/complexion?? Go stand under the sun you will change into a different colour… are you a chameleon?🤷‍♀️ We are dark but come rain,sunshine,snow we remain the same and recognize ourselves. How about you???? We are poor because your forefathers and yourself are still stealing from us. The phone or device you used to share you nonsense has a mineral that stole a 6yrs old child’s joy in Congo. And you are here showcasing your identitilessness.

  • my93vr4 says:

    we don’t care

    • Merciful says:

      No one told you to care

    • Mystery Man says:

      Who are you to speak in someone else’s name.
      You have no right to that.
      Some do care if the situation for innocent people is going to change or not, do not speak in the name of those.

    • my93vr4 says:

      @Mystery Man we still don’t care

    • highly favored says:

    I guess there’s no coronavirus in Malawi

  • arambaii meitei says:

    Great speech but after some months, he will also become king of corruption

    • bill tev says:

      Give him a chance Africa is changing

  • D J BLACK says:

    In the beginning they will start working but the western leaders will start warning him and that is where he will start the corrupt life

    • Luso Langa says:

      D J BLACK Actually the UN representative to Malawi was already taking side of the corrupt President we did not want in the entire process. But when they saw that Malawians did not want the former president they changed. These international bodies and western countries support the corrupt government and don’t care of the plight of the people.

  • james mani says:

    Praise the Lord God bless president ♥️ Love from India

  • Mmetla Mosimane says:

    African leaders speak better English than European leaders

    • Fahad Faraj says:

      Is that important? Its just a sign of mental slavery

    • Shepy Shepy says:

      That is all they do before they loot.

    • Mr. .T says:

      No need for English. .Europeans speak their languages my friend. ..they are not silly

  • Tapiwa Lexis says:

    They can create more jobs by bringing in more tourists 🙏🏾! Make Malawi more modern and Fun and develop it ! Just like South Africa or nigeria and Ghana.

    • Mercy Banda says:

      Well said , thank you

    • Dunzy says:

      When you mean tourists, they shouldn’t be Chinese. These guys are scavengers who hate Africans.

    • Quetzalcoatl says:

      Not just tourists but also adding value to raw material. Instead of producing raw cotton turn some of the cotton to textile etc. A GDP per capita of $367 is unacceptable in such a modern economy. The president is either corrupt or low IQ if he can’t get the GDP per capita to $3000 in 20 years. It’s as simple as having a plan for the economic development and get the people organized. It’s about leaders showing leadership like kagame in Rwanda, whose GDP has increase by a factor of 2 since 2010 while malawi GDP has fallen below Rwanda despite having highervpopulation and a higher GDP in 2010. He is a horrible president.

    • Mercy Banda says:

      @Dunzy I had to laugh🤣🤣, yes not them .

  • JJ IMgos says:

    Another one bites the dust!…The Chinese government will soon engage Malawi on joining the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) a mechanism aimed at fostering development around the world………Check out the recent news about the railway line in Kenya!…..surprise…it’s illegal!

  • Lugubriously says:

    What a remarkable speech.

  • Ali hiji iddi says:

    Malawi 🇲🇼 💀👹🔥❌❌❌

  • Quetzalcoatl says:

    The GDP per of capita of Malawi is $367. The man has failed already. if you can’t get your gdp per capita to around $5000 will all the resource around you, you should just back down. This president is clearly either corrupt or low IQ.

    • Stanley Tinga says:

      You’re typically an idiot with no sense of economic insight. You think stating GDP per capita without a complete evaluation of Malawi in regards to natural resources and its history of economics since 1890 makes your argument hold water? Malawi is roughly 100,000 km2, with a population of 18 million. The country is hampered by lack of natural resources or a coastline, a huge setback for its economic development. Its geography which was carved out by the British in the Berlin conference is mostly to blame for its woes, and its low amount of natural resources is also a blow. Your arguements on IQ still reflect that you belong to the dregs of civilisation. Argue with facts, not your emotional convictions.

  • anc Ayre says:

    Don’t let bill gates in there !!! Or China ! They will end the good days !!! Protect yur children ! Keep yur country Christian ✝️

    • highly favored says:

      I’m sorry to say it’s too late. The Chinese have already infiltrated the country. Gates Foundation is already thee with Rihanna giving free immunizations to children and most of them develop some type of deformity after takimg them.

    • Mercy Banda says:

      @highly favored on my God this is shocking. Anyway but it’s not too to be strict and check closely what’s in what they give to children. Corner their organisation in Malawi

  • Jasper Etale says:

    Lest we forget. Remember Frederick Chiluba in neighboring Zambia. History repeats itself but who learns?

    • highly favored says:

      That was Zambia, this is Malawi

  • Harrison Etuku says:

    Kenyan politicians can you learn from Malawi.. Where anybody anywhere can lead the nation, forget about,your founder father’s history… Churches can you take the lead now?

  • Susan Diane Howell says:

    “For every one that asketh, receiveth; and he that seeketh, findeth; and to him that knocketh, it shall be opened.

    Or what man is there of you, who, if his son ask bread, will give him a stone?

    Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

    If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father who is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

    Therefore, all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them, for this is the law and the prophets.

    Enter ye in at the strait gate; for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, which leadeth to destruction, and many there be who go in thereat;

    Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

    Wherefore, by their fruits ye shall know them.

    Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father who is in heaven.”

    – 3 Nephi 14:8-21, The Book of Mormon

    Is there no Corona cases in Malawi?social distancing is out of the door.African leaders with empty promises

  • etos butch says:

    All this foreign media should stop labeling Africa poor countries. African leaders should invest in human resources ,Malawi is endowed with large reserves in uranium bauxite and rare earth minerals. Where is the money from uranium mining? Corruption and western collaboration is destroying the children of Africa.

  • Simswills Banda says:

    Indeed,we people of GOD we prayed and prayed for quiet a long period asking Him to give us the ‘THE GOD FEARING PRESIDENT ” so that the poor Malawian citizens must be protected and respected then enjoy the fruits of Malawi,which had been for a long time enjoyed by very few people, “Two families” as well as one province,of two tribes. “OOOHH GOD YOU ARE INDEED A LISTENING GOD, Be with Dr.Lazarus Chakwela and his vice Dr.Saulos Chilima to focus on developing Malawi in all four provinces without favour so that we may truly see the new MALAWI,” THE WARM HEART OF AFRICA ” Which our first ,father and founder of the Malawi Nation, late Dr. HASTINGS KAMUZU BANDA laid a foundation of many developments. However since his death, there’s nothing we can point being done in our poor Malawian,apart from corruption, murder of Albinoism, self enrichment, driving of most expensive cars in Africa by the two families ” MAUL UZI and MUTHALIKA’s. Whilst Malawi has very poor roads,people living without food, jobs,no good hospitals,Doctors, Teachers,Soldiers,living very poor live due to poor salaries. We need to see our youth starting being employed than flocking to SOUTH AFRICA, looking for better life. IN JESUS’ NAME FATHER WE HUMBLY HONOURS YOU… AMEEEN
