The past six weeks have seen Malawi hit by the worst form of violence, lawlessness, and anarchy since its Independence. Timothy Mtambo led these.
But, the question in many people’s minds is – who is this Timothy Mtambo?
Timothy Mtambo was born in Burundi. Mtambo’s family later emigrated to Zambia, where he did his schooling. Mtambo then migrated from Zambia to Malawi. Revelations are that he settled in Chitipa. His strange Chewa accent is a testimony of the roots of this foreigner.
Mtambo became a “Malawian” through automatic citizenship grant. Automatic citizenship is attained after living in the country for seven years.
Mtambo’s early life represents that of a petty criminal who used to hassle to survive. Mtambo will do anything for money. As a youngster, he had lots of run-ins with the law for fraud, theft and other criminal activities.
In Malawi, he found the NGO sector a lucrative industry where he can make a lot of money. Mtambo chairs the Human Rights Defenders. He runs the CSO together with the woman beating drunkard Billy Mayaya, Gift Trapence, and Charles Kajoloweka.
But HRDC has not been an ordinary CSO. It is a mercenary CSO selling its service to political parties. Its job is to organise demos that put pressure on the government about political issues the opposition fail to win in parliament.
MBC revealed in a leaked recording between Mtambo and Chakwera that HRDC is a political pawn of the MCP. Mtambo was plotting to disrupt elections through violence, but he failed. Leaked emails from Saulos Chilima confirmed that they were also in a payroll of the UTM.
HRDC has got nothing to do with “Human Rights”.
To the unsuspecting public, HRDC is presented as a “neutral CSO”, but it is not. The “neutrality” is only a bait to draw people who get unknowingly used for political purposes. Especially a regime change agenda.
Who can show us any issue related to “human rights” that HRDC has ever pursued?
Mtambo also gets paid to fight for the legalisation of homosexuality and gay rights in Malawi. He wants to plunge this God-fearing country into a pit of wickedness and immorality.
Many peace-loving Malawians need to ask themselves some serious questions about what is happening today.
Why would a patriotic Malawian be happy to burn and destroy people’s property? Why would someone organise violent demos about a matter that is already sitting in courts?
Mtambo does not care. He does not care if Malawi burns down to ashes as long as Chakwera and Chilima pay him.
When there is nothing left of Malawi, Mtambo will go back to Burundi. Or he will emigrate to another country to conduct his mercenary trade. Many indigenous Malawians do not have any country except Malawi.
Timothy Mtambo has no patriotism or patriotic duty to this country. He has always been hopping from country to country.
All Mtambo cares about is the money he can make from the donors. He is a man driven by greed! All he cares about is how much he makes from Chakwera, and Chilima to organise their demos. He is a mercenary!
Next time you see violent, lawless demos that want to destroy our peace – remember that is the work of the greedy Burundian National.
It is the work of a man who will not care to see Malawi destroyed, as long as gets a few million kwacha he gets paid. That man is Timothy Mtambo.
