I filmed, edited, and produced a documentary on infrastructure development, highlighting several completed projects in Chitipa. These initiatives were carried out by Chitipa Restoration, with support from PeachTree Church.

In 2020, Malawians took to the streets to protest against the election results, which they alleged were tainted by irregularities.
