The president has demonstrated that he is a caring father, a considerate and tolerant president. We wish him good health in his everyday endeavours as he continues leading the country to respecting human rights and to economic prosperity.

      Do you actually expect them to criticize Bingu (and much of Malawian society which agrees with him) while they’re in Malawi? I hope you’re not criticizing them for not doing so. It’s my understanding Tiwonge is still trying to emigrate, let’s just be thankful they’re out of prison and, for now, safe.

      Here’s a further link about Wednesday’s press conference in Blantyre: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hF6Va3R1oC_sOzauTOl22_b95O1g

      So there are reports that Tiwonge Chimbalanga has dissapeared or at least gone in to hiding after coming out of prison. Now she’s issuing press statements? Which rumors are true here?

      Fierce!!! That is the word that described them. Champions. Walking through a country mob of vandals can only be done with bravery. They are GIANTS.

      No, they probably won’t criticize the laws until they are safe from imprisonment, assault, and death, and I can’t blame them.

      It’s easy to be brave with other people’s lives. Jesus Christ.
