Government hides the truth

If you go to one demonstration and then go home, that's something, but the people in power can live with that. What they can't live with is sustained pressure that keeps building, organisations that keep doing things, people that keep learning lessons from the last time and doing it better the next time.
Noam Chomsky

Power is a drug on which the politicians are hooked. They buy it from the voters, using the voters' own money.

The Mhlako Triumvirate

Tuesday, February 15, 2011


The local and international press (and the Minister of Justice) got it wrong. The revision to the Malawi law was not about farting but about other forms of fouling the air. Nevertheless, it got Malawi almost as much publicity as Madonna did! It even inspired a lesson to be used by teachers of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL or ESL). Teaching of English as a Foreign Language is quite a difficult discipline - I know, because I found it very difficult. I just managed to pass in 2003! To see how complex it is and to find out how Malawian farts have helped in the teaching of English or if you are a EFL teacher who would like to use the lesson in order to teach English click here.
