Auntie Tiwo photo goes viral

It's interesting to note how a photo of transgender Tiwonge Chimbalanga (Auntie Tiwo) before she left for exile late last year was downloaded  from a Facebook account with privacy settings and is now circulating on Facebook by many Malawians who hate her.

The reasons are not known, but the photo is attracting a lot of negative comments since homosexuality is not accepted in Malawi and considered evil and satanic.

Auntie Tiwo was also reported to have beaten up by fellow Malawians in South Africa and hospitalised. She has since recovered and thanked well-wishers for assisting her during those trying times.

I also plan to film award winning documentaries based on the history of this ancient land called Malawi and the mysteries of the Sirius star. this space.
