Not everyone is unhappy with Peter Mutharika’s joke in which he urges hungry Malawians to eat Rats and Grasshoppers. Malawi Punch came across a Chinese man Ching Chong who has come in the open to defend the president saying rats are delicious.
” 我不知道為什麼馬拉維並不像老鼠。他們是很好，並作出最好的一餐。馬拉維應該獵取老鼠和殺人。他們很容易煮的肉持續更長的時間。骨頭是甜和頭部比魚更好。,” explained Ching Chong to Malawi Punch.
He also said that “Chinenepetsa Nkhumba sichidziwika”
