Bright Chipeka - Mulanje

Bright Chipeka is a security supervisor at the Kara O'Mula Lodge in Mulanje. He would like to meet Nelson Mandela and would like to visit England. The most beautiful thing for him is Malawi. He would like his children to be doctors. He supports Man united. He was gob-smacked when I asked him about his children. He said that in all his time working at the lodge no guest had ever enquired about his children. I told him I would try to help him by finding a benefactor through the Internet. He hopes that someone will be able to assist him with the education of his children. If you are able to assist Bright contact him at

Elmerio is a security guard at the Honey Pot. The most beautiful thing for him is the good life he has. He would like to visit South Africa. He would like to meet a Mr Zaayman from Randfontein. His house is made from reeds. The funniest thing he has seen is kung fu movies. He wants his children to be teachers and nurses. He also thought I was loco acbout the AIDS shower question. (I am going to scrap this question and ask about what team they support)

My order is a bit out of sync. Xai Xai was before Morengosa.

Joseph Ramaseli - Ladybrand

Joseph is a Sotho fromLadybrand and I chatted to him on an icy morning (-4degrees Celcius)while filling up in Ladybrand. He wants to meet Ronaldinho. A black Porshe is the most beautiful thing he has seen. He wishes to achieve by helping his community fight drugs and crime. He wants his child to be a nurse. He lives in a brick house and thought I was crazy when I asked him about his president showering to prevent AIDS. The funniest thing he has seen is a chicken eating popcorn out of a bag and the bag being stuck on its head.
