Happy 2010

Warm New Year Greetings!
What a year 2009 has been:
The Malawi elections of May 2009 were obviously a major event for Malawi. The results, which gave the Democratic Progresive Party of Bingu wa Mutharika a resounding victory in both the presidential and parliamentary elections were a major highlight and completely changed the political landscape... former President Bakili Muluzi was once again rejected in his attempts to return to State House for the umpteenth time...
As 2010 dawns, there is already plenty to chew and discuss....
....the country is in the middle of a heated debate on whether to change the national flag (as proposed by government) or not...
Meanwhile, the drama involving two gay men that got 'engaged' within the last week of 2009 will continue into 2010 as the two men are brought before court to answer charges...
will there be local government elections or not?...
we will be here again soon to discuss these and other emerging issues.
Once more, a happy and prosperous 2010 to all Malawians and all our friends across the world.
