Hi Tse!

That's correct! Lilongwe is the capital of Malawi with a population of over 800,000 people. It is near the border of Malawi, Mozambique, and Zambia.

That's 1 correct answer for Tse.

I'll be posting another question in a little bit...

The correct answer is Bingu Wa Mutharika. He was just reelected this year by a landslide.

Beetlemess is credited with the right answer since they were the first person to post with the correct answer.

The first person to get three correct answers will win the book smile So anyone can still win this!

CURRENT SCORE:

Tse - 1
Beetlemess - 1
