Malawi confirms president's death, declares 10 days of mourning

Malawi declared 10 days of national mourning Saturday following the death of President Bingu wa Mutharika as citizens of the southern African country awaited word on who will succeed him.

State-run media confirmed the president's death two days after he succumbed to a heart attack.

The delay in a formal announcement sparked chaotic politics and fears of a constitutional crisis.

    Dazzle, I am so sorry, I lied to you. I don't live in Oklahoma. I know that your ex husband was a drunk and a deadbeat. You are raising Tori on your own and you are beautiful and smart as a whip. Why won't let me take care of you. I can't sleep so I am going to call you. Please don't blow me off.

    Dazzle, answer your phone. Your picture is the wallpaper on my phone but I cropped him out of it. You look so hot in the beach picture with that black bikini and Bo Derek braids in your hair with the purple and pink beads.

    Mitch, you will not be able to fool dazzle. She isn't some naive newbie who is looking for a long distance relationship with a guy. Didn't work out so well with your last little love bunny, did it? LMFAO!
