    There must have been very serious rift between clive’s camp and the board camp but at last Clive’s camp has prevailed, although the Minister is trying to down play the issue.

    Clive is a money monger, he wants a pound of fresh from a company without any flesh at all.

    K248 million and staying at lodge at the cost of K72 million is really outrageous. I thought president Sata and PF govt pride themselves as the govt for the poor. How on earth will they justify their agreeing to pay the man that much? Mr Chirwa should also live with the fact that since he agreed to help the country, the are centain sacrifices that he has to make. Really his conditions are way too much. Can the govt justify this?

    We voted PF in order to serve money not to pay people huge sums for the job that even myself can handle. People come on, Mark chona and prof Saasa are not dull to do the things Chilwa is accusing them. Chilwa must go.

Research to date has not confirmed if natural beta-carotene consumption from foods such as fruits and vegetables. That’s pretty decent for a breakfast that could last you for much longer than a box of the chocolates any time soon.
