  1. That is what we call serious leadership. The Malawian leader listens to advice and can see where decisive steps have to be taken.
    It’s a direct opposite of what has been witnessed in Zambia where ministers abscond from parliament and others are preoccupied in tribe-driven fight over the presidency, all this at the expense of their official duties and no disciplinary action is taken against them. Shame!
