We are spending our weekend this week and serenade into Mother’s Day next Monday in serious cogitation, self-introspection, self-assessment, self-examination and self-critique. Since such brain-splitting work requires a certain measure  of  Yoga-like concentration, we have elected to be in what the indigenes still call Tcholo, the only district in Malawi to have produced two brothers…

We, Malawians, love football or soccer. We love watching the beautiful game although there are a lot of ugly tackles.  When our teams, some domiciled very far away from our country, win, we celebrate. When they lose, we commiserate. We love the football players, too.  Professor Abiti Joyce Befu, especially, loves Ronaldo’s thigh and Messi’s…

The reaction of the enemies of our mighty party was expected.  We have apologised, not because we were wrong but upon reflection we realised we had touched a live Escom wire. However, deep in their throats, our enemies know that our Hophmally Makande was right and drove the point home. The Holy father and leader…

Our leader of the delegation, Professor Abiti Dr Joyce Befu, also popularly known as MG 66 and MEGA-1, has convinced us that we should defect from the United Transformation Movement (UTM).  As you already know by now, we, Professor Abiti’s subjects are no push-overs.  So, it took the professor a lot of cajoling, pampering and…

Our esteemed leader of delegation, Professor Abiti Dr Joyce Befu, also fondly called MG 33 or MEGA-1, has directed that we attend Sunday’s second launch of the United Transport of Malawi, sorry, United Transformation Movement (UTM), in Blantyre, the city that is smarting out of darkness. Last week, we braved the cold weather and attended…

After visiting Chitipi in Lilongwe, we decided to proceed to Chikwawa on the road to Mchinji to spend a few hours there and buy some cabbages, tomatoes and all those green things people diagnosed with heart problems eat. When we got there, we decided to visit a barber shop first because Alhajj Mufti Jean-Philippe’s head…

Last Thursday we met at Chitipi, in Lilongwe, and held a convention where our leader of delegation, Professor Abiti Joyce Befu, MG 66 and MEGA-1 went unopposed.  She will lead our delegation until she decides to call another convention. We make this declaration with our eyes upright. Professor Befu is the delegation, and the delegation…

Mission accomplished. At Area 30, as the Police Headquarters are called, we delivered our petition for a delivery of an operations vehicle to Sharpe Valley Police Station.   Additionally, we handed in a letter from the people of Chintheche who are appealing for police protection against killings and midnight abductions there.  We hope Inspector General Jose…

After dropping off Traffic Sergeant Ujeni of Sharp Valley at the accident spot, our leader of delegation and expedition, Professor Abiti Joyce Befu, MG 66 and MEGA-1, commanded us, like all great leaders do, to travel to Lilongwe via the Golomoti Escarpment. Alhajj Mufti Jean-Philippe LePoisson, SC (RTD) tried to argue that our initial plan…

There is always a time when a hardworking and seemingly tireless caring mother must sit down, pluck the breast out of her lactating child, rest against a mud wall and doze…
