In Life Or In Death, Jb Is Not To Lead Malawi!

On Succession and Constitution Crisis DPP’s Views

joyce banda

Joyce Banda cannot and will not lead Malawi unless the people of Malawi vote for her. Her position as Vice President of the country has been precarious since 2010 when she was fired from the DPP to say that she can automatically take over power upon the incapacitation or death of president Bingu wa Munthalika.

Chapter 111, Section 12-- states that the Constitution is founded upon the following underlying principles relating to governing:

All legal and political authority of the State derives from the people of Malawi and shall be exercised in accordance with this Constitution solely to serve and protect their interests.

All persons responsible for the exercise of powers of State do so on trust and shall only exercise such power to the extent of their lawful authority and in accordance with their responsibilities to the people of Malawi.

The authority to exercise power of State is conditional upon the sustained trust of the people of Malawi and that trust can only be maintained through open, accountable and transparent Government and informed democratic choice.

As Malawi is a representative democracy founded on the principle of elected people representing the people, Joyce Banda’s current position, whatever caused it, cannot be said to be a position of trust. It does not qualify her as one that can constitutionally serve and protect the interest of the people of Malawi. She is not different from Kamlepo Kaluwa or any other person on the streets apart from that she is holding the seat of the vice president.

Section 6– Save as otherwise provided in this Constitution, the authority to govern derives from the people of Malawi as expressed through universal and equal suffrage in elections held in accordance with this Constitution in a manner prescribed by an Act of Parliament.

The words ‘Save as otherwise provided in this constitution,’ leads us to section 83 (3) and (85) which presents two different scenarios whereby one can govern the country apart from being voted into power through an election.

Section 83 (4) –whenever there is a vacancy in the office of President, the First Vice-President shall assume that office for the remainder of the term and shall appoint another person to serve as First Vice-President for the remainder of the term.

Section 85 – If at any time both the office of President and First Vice- President become vacant then the Cabinet shall elect from among its members an Acting President and Acting First Vice-President who shall hold office for not more than sixty days or, where four years of a Presidential term have expired, for the rest of that Presidential term.

Section 83 (4) would have been the way to go if Joyce Banda was still part of the DPP the party under whose sponsorship the president was voted into power and a party that has the majority representation in parliament; if she was still functioning as the Vice President of the country and; if she was part of the cabinet.

Adding to those flaws is the fact that Joyce Banda is a president of a political party called the Peoples’ Party (PP) dully registered with the government of Malawi and has registered members.

Joyce Banda’s political party has no representation in parliament both on the government side and on the opposition side.

During the last by-elections in the north, Joyce Banda’s political party fielded a candidate who lost demonstrating that the people did not have trust in her party and views.

Since her ouster from the DPP, Joyce Banda has travelled the length and breath of the country opposing government.

Joyce Banda did not contest her ouster from the DPP in court nor did she contest her exclusion from cabinet in court to validate her position as vice president.

Under the given circumstances as Joyce is in, to take over power means that we will be starting over  as though we have had general elections when in actual fact  section 83(4) and 85 points at continuity.  She has no clue about what has been happening with government since 2010 and cannot work with the incumbent cabinet as she is of a different political persuasion than them.

With the DPP having the majority in parliament and with her having no one in parliament, there is no way she can expect to do anything that would pass through parliament.

As it is, with all those flaws, Joyce Banda cannot lead Malawi unless she seeks the trust of the people through an election. Meanwhile section 85 is the section that would be followed failing which like Edge Kanyongolo said, the constitution does not have all the answers to our political problem, then parliament comprising of the leaders of the opposition (MCP and UDF), the speaker and cabinet will meet to decide on the next direction Malawi would take.

    Firstly, power and glory be to our God Almighty for allowing the constitution of Malawi to take its course. As for Mr Ndirande Love, I do know that he is reading the raped version of DPP’s own constitution that allowed the late Mutharika to abuse it so that he could pave the way for his young brother. As educated as they claim to be, they could not see the serious damage caused to Malawi and the poor at large.

    A PIECE OF ADVICE TO THE NEW PRESIDENT:
    Please put the interests of ordinary Malawians first before your ambitions and your party and those of your friends.

    Malawians should take the following into consideration:

    (a) Do not allow Presidents taking you for granted.
    (b) Vote for people who can listen and bring about the desired results.
    (c) Stop importing leaders that do not know Malawi very well; I mean people like Dr Banda got the job on a silver platter and then ended up being one of the worst dectators the world had ever seen. The second one, Dr Bingu, also inflicted alot of pain to ordinary Malwians until God said no more. What about the Prof. who is waiting to be one in 2014? Where was he when his brother persecuted defenceless Malawians? Then the big question is; DOES HE CARE?
    (d) Stop recycling the old corrupt leaders from one party to another; try to bring in new blood.
    (e) Nepotism, racism, and regionalism is a cancer that the New leaders should tackle it head on, not only with words but with actions so as to instill the confidence of Malawians (sense of belonging).
    (f) Elected MPs should execute their duties effectively ( should not be yes bwanas).

    SHORT SUMMARY OF THE FORMER PRESIDENTS’ SCORE CARD.

    (1) Dr Banda: Started well more especially on the standard of education and agriculture; but the most devastating memories are dictatorship and unequal distribution of wealth.

    (2) Dr Muluzi: Malawians could freely express their unhappiness without fear even though this slowly changed towards the end of his term. The most worrying factors during his two terms were rampant corruption and lack of food security plans.

    (3) Dr Bingu: Started his first term on a very posive note and this was what Malawians wanted. Food security problem was solved, development projects spread from far and wide (from cities to rural areas). This happened while opposition parties were busy trying to have him dethroned. However, things changed drastically when Malawians gave him the majority vote for second term. Like the previous presidents, he wasted the trust of Malawians by carelessly misusing his power.

    Mayi J.B was put on that position by the votes of Malawians not bingo. If him the no more guy(bingo) had a grudge with JB and decided to fire her because she refused to take the crap from him. It was not Malawians who fired her that you must know for sure.

    The guy I mean the no more guy (bingo) the truth be said ,him bingo where ever he is, he must be banging the tables like no body’s business. I hear they give you one minute to relive your whole life. He must be blaming the kachasu all the way.

    Constitution states the vice president of Malawi shall take the reigns for the remaining term. If cabinet doesn’t want her tough luck for them, because people know that JB is the vice president of Malawi not for dpp ,bingo made it clear. Separation of power is here. She was fired in dpp thus where bingos power stopped. Because party and government are two different entities and the two shall not mix no matter what. What did bingo do he mixed them up. Big mistake.

    The result is this ndirande conjuring up quotations in the constitution to appease his conscious. If you are not happy with mayi JB. Tough I am happy with mayi JB. New blood and gender at the same time. Malawi is lucky to have her,not the former two bastards.

    This is a totally misguided article. The national Assembly of Malawi does not fund a vacant office. Just during the midyear budget review parliament increasing funding to the office of the First Vice President Joyce Banda. That action alone, not anly validates, but also consolidates the VP’s position. It is mere wishful thinking for the DPP to expect that VP JB will not rule Malawi, when it becomes necessary. I am not interested in Polictics myself but I feel sorry for the DPP top brass for, within a flicker of a moment, they find themsleves without power, and completely helpless. Bingu himself failed to get rid of JB as VP because he had no such powers. It is only Malawians who can get rid of her through the ballot, not otherwise. Her firing was from the DPP not from the Malawi cabinet. Right now since we have proof that the president is incapacitated, she is the head of cabinet and the head of state. The DPP has just shot itself in the foot BIG TIME!!!

    DPP is not “Malawians”, its just a party in Malawi. We have all learnt a big lesson. The VP must be swon in as a matter of urgency. To God be Glory for ever, Amen!!!.

    The DPP manoeuvrings to try to change the consititution is to say the least shameful. But even if they tried to do that, who will sign for its approval into law???

    If what you guys are saying then why did Bingu himself not relieve her of the Vice presidency? I am sure it is because he understood that she was an elected official that could not be removed even by the president himself so all he could do within the confines of the constitution was to not delegate work to her.
    Let her serve out the rest of the term and if the Malawians do not approve of her then she wont win.

You want it or u dont JB is Malawi’s next president.

      Zimene ukukamba ndirande love is utter nonsense. The vice president was only removed from the party and u and me now pretty well that the vice president of the land is Mai Banda. If u agree on that then what does the constitution say in chapter 8 section 87? It doesn’t say anything on parties. Yes there will be succession crisis in DPP (as to who will read the party) not the nation the constitution is clear.

    This is lunancy at its best.

    1. The sections quoted all support Band’s Presidency
    2. Nothing has been said by the constitution to say the vice president should be DDP
    3. Very childish to say that Banda has not been attending cabinet meetings. You chased her because of differences of opinion over isiues. Further, was kamudzu attending colonial cabinent meeting. Was Muluzi attending DR. Banda’s cabinent meetings. It is not DDP but the constitution
    4. Look you are now putting yourselves in position of the courts. If you have problems with the interpretation of the constitution go to courts not talking rubbish.
    5. Kaliati and your colleagues what you should know is that the office of Vice President and President has a composite vote. This is why bingu could not kick out Banda. In summary, She is an elected leader in a General election. You remember she was sworn in together with Bingu
    6. What is important is not DDP having majority in Parliament but the constitution. If you want to block bills for the sake of it, then you are not patriots.

    What a lame interpretation of the constitution. Can you tell me how is “trust” defined is the constitution? A vice president need not to come from the same party as the president which effectively means the party argument is irrelevant. Statements made by Kaliati and friends are seditious against ones own president and there is a precedent for that. Check watergate scandal. Bingu formed his own party after he won on the back of UDF and the constitution is silent on that just like JBs case. The sooner people realise the writing on the wall the better for them. Peter may not even stand in 2014 if he is not careful. Ask mw why.

    There is nowhere in the constitution that mentions the affiliation with another political party being an obstacle in the take over of the position of presidency.

    Joyce Banda was never removed from her position as Vice President. Bingu indeed pursued this but thankfully, the consitution itself protected her and this never passed.

    There are no ‘flaws’ or ‘downfalls’ unless otherwise specifically stated in the constitution, and you know this yourself. Otherwise the consitution would simply be a book of suggestions and not rules to be followed to the letter.

    Section 83(4) is very clear. You may wish to know that nowhere in the constitution is it stated that the vice president can only assume power if she belonged and/or belongs to the ruling party. It’s not a matter of being DPP, but it’s her state of being vice president that she is to attain the presidency without any hindrance. It’s high time people like you understood the spirit and principle of our constitution…

    Ndirande Love, it is people like you together with this cabinet that want to cause havok in Malawi. In case you dont know, the office of the vice- president is not vacant. Secondly, Joyce Banda was not fired by the people of Malawi but one man, Bingu. So the issue of trust is irelevant here. You can try to twist the constitution but in the end you can not change it by wishing it. Be contented, you have ripped Malawians through this government, I guess it pleased God that there should be change. One word of caution to the cabinet ministers who held a press briefing tonight is that what you want to do will lead to the loss of many Malawians. However, in the end you too will face the music. Look around the world, all dictators have not ended well. Trying to run the government unconstitutionally will not take you far, if there is one thing that we have learned from regions around the world. If you love your families and the people of Malawi and if you fear God, you will do what is right. May God protect Malawi and may His light shine upon it in these dark hours
