  1. Dear MNN,
    Thanks for this summary of the news from several parts of the world. Kindly, let all the gallant people of Malawi know that in Uganda, lives are getting worse. There is a man called YOWERI KALAMBO MUSEVENI who raped the country in 1986 and has since refused to go thru peaceful means. As usual, we the victims of despoticism are doing everything in our power to bend his back.
    Please sign our petition. We can sue this man in a court of law outside Uganda ofcourse. We need numbers to attract the attention of international lawyers.
