Central Region Chiefs Breathe Fire Against Chakwera’s Crocodiles

By Daniel Namwini, Mana

Central Region chiefs have condemned the violence perpetrated by Malawi Congress Party after the announcement of the May 21 2019 presidential results which showed that President Peter Mutharika was the winner.

The chiefs said MCP’s violent acts after elections was a clear demonstration that the party does not embrace democratic principles and that it has not changed from its past history.

The chiefs further condemned the party for invading the Capitol Hill arguing that doing so was out of ignorance because Capitol Hill is for civil servants and not politicians.

Addressing a news conference yesterday, leader of the chiefs, Senior Chief Kaomba distanced the Chewa chiefs from MCP’s brutal acts.

“MCP should not claim to be Chewa and the Chewa cannot claim to be MCP,” said Kaomba who was flanked by other Chewa chiefs who included Tsabango of Lilongwe, Nthondo of Ntchisi, Mwansambo of Nkhotakota, Makwangwala of Ntcheu and others from Dedza, Mchinji, Salima and Kasungu.

The chiefs asked MCP president Lazarus Chakwera to desist from violence and remain calm and wait for the outcome of the electoral court case which the party has filed. The chiefs further said MCP’s demonstrations were sub judice as the matter is in court.

On his part Makwangwala said: “Demonstrations retard development as people cannot go work or their businesses and children cannot go to school.”

Taking his turn, Tsabango said MCP went overboard by invading the Capitol Hill and flushing out civil servants. He described the act as uncalled for arguing that Capitol Hill is for civil servants and attacking them would affect government operations and the common man.

On his part, Mwansambo said terrorizing the country is not in the best interest of Malawians as the country is known to be God fearing and Warm Heart of Africa. He said the country should be striving to protect its good history of keeping peace known all over the world.

MCP president declared himself Commander In Chief during the vote counting when he slightly led in the votes when Malawi Electoral Commission gave first results after counting from about 1000 polling centres out of 5002 centres.

MCP supporters went to the streets and invaded Capitol Hill on Tuesday and further demonstrated yesterday in some parts of the central region including the Capital City.

The party is disputing presidential election results. According to MEC official results Mutharika won by 38.57 percent while Chakwera 35.41 percent and Saulos Chilima of United Transformation Movement 20.24 percent.-Mana

    Good on you Chikefs! This is mature Leadership on your part. My suggestion is that Chakwera needs to be replaced by a more mature and more able leader . MCP ought to be doing better but the reason why it is not doing well is because its leadership is totally destructive as we can see!! He is destrying MCVP even further.

    Malawi Voice or Lomwe Voice?

    Za bodza zonsezi. You just gave these so called chiefs khaki envelopes and they will say literally anything you tell them to say.

    Poverty is so endemic in Malawi that we use some of these useless chiefs like that.

    If the elections results were handled professionally I do not believe Reverend Chakwera or SKC would have gone to court.

    APM lost this election but MEC led by its Chair and other daylight thieves stole it and gave it to APM.

    Unfortunately this country seem to be cursed.

    It seems malawi voice online news is owned by Mutharika’s family. Your too biased. Azanu saziwonetsela ngati momwe mumachitiranu.

    I agree with the first comment that Lazaro must be replaced with immediate effect for bringing shame to Malawi Crocodile Party.

    Ungwelu, Please spare the Lomwes from this fracas How do you relate us to Malawi Voice. Let me inform you that am a Lomwe by tribe and I don’t regret. I am not a politician and I fend for my family and am not poor. Please once again spare the tribes of Malawi.
    concerned Lomwe

    In total agreement with the latest comment above,ungwelu must be myopic and tribalistic,how would you add up your senses and involve the Lomwes in this issue?You mean up to now you don’t differentiate btwn tribes And politics? Even if you could drag the lomwes into this fracas,would you compare us with the tribe of chakwera?Would you be comfortable to compare mutharika and chakwera in terms of maturity and discipline?

      So you think that Lhomwes are more superior than Chewas? Really? There is no tribe which is superior than others koma Chakwera is a summa cum laude type. Mutharika has not demonstrated that he is smart compared to most Lhomwes I know. I know lots of Lhomwes who are smart but Mutharika miserably failed as a minister of foreign affairs and minister of education. To tout him as creme de la creme of the Lhomwes is doing a lot of injustice to the Lhomwe people.
      In America everyone who lecturers/teaches at a university is given a title of a professor. That is why even Obama is sometimes referred to as a professor but he does not really care about it.
      This guy is just luck to say the truth and he is not good enough.
