Masangwi congratulating Usi UTM fallen leader Saulos Chilima never said a word about the position of his party in the Tonse Alliance.

Triephornia Mpinganjira Initially, this project unveiled its winners every fortnight and was scheduled to announced the last 18th winner in December. However, in a statement released today, Mpinganjira says she has made some adjustments to the unveiling process aimed at making the project more efficient. “We reviewed the project, and we found that our plan of unveiling winners every fortnight is cumbersome because we have to introduce two links every month. This resulted in thousands of excellent applications, which we could barely accommodate because we could only consider one winner out of all of them. “Furthermore, we have several programs in the offing, and having this one run until...
