“I blame the current administration for neglecting covid-19 preventive measures during the campaign period,” said Nankhumwa
However, Nankhumwa asked President Chakwera’s administration to tighten the fight against Covid-19 by among others buying testing kits and putting tough preventing measures.
Recently, President Chakwera called upon Malawians to join hands in the fight against covid-19 in the country.
