Malawi Party Card?

    To all:

    Has anyone here ever in their lives actually viewed one of the party cards JWs in Malawi were so harshly persecuted for refusing to purchase? I am talking about the whole card, not just the images reproduced in the 1975 Awake.

    Even better, does anyone here have access to one of these party cards or images of one that they can share?

    This could be crucial to some rather important research currently underway. Any help is much appreciated.

    I could not find any such images on the web. I even searched through the official website of the Malawi government: and still had no luck.

    Best wishes on your project.

    Perhaps Ray Franz could help you?

    Thanks Gopher and Changeling.

    Those cards are rare as hen's teeth, at least outside Malawi they are. I really need one of those things (both sides) from the Banda era. I doubt Ray F has one, but have contacted him just in case. In the meantime, any help finding one of these things is most appreciated.
