âThe high profile audience which included state president Prof.Peter Mutharika cabinet ministers and diplomats, laughed and laughed up to the end as he poured a joke after another,â he wrote.
He added: âThat was John Nyanga alias Izeki at his best as he performed along side Eric Mabedi, aka Jakobo at the launch of Public Reforms at the Bingu International Conference Centre.â
âWatching the video clip months after the live performance, I found myself in tears of laughter.â
The message is still fresh and as relevant as it was on the day when he gave that grand performance that gave public servants some ” cash talk”.
