Chakwera’s Hurry to Destruction

BY MZATI NKOLOKOSA

Chakwera: He lost an election, yet he claims victory

The use of Tipp Ex in the 2019 elections was first reported at Chinsapo in Lilongwe on the night of 21 May.

A DPP monitor noted the correctional fluid on one of the centre’s result tabulation tables.  Immediately, the monitor alerted members of DPP Monitors Whatsapp group. They agreed to stay awake and alert all night.   
Some minutes after the Whatsapp alert, three DPP monitors at a centre in Dowa, outside Kamuzu International Airport, noticed Tipp Ex and queried attempts to change figures.  MCP monitors became angry and were about to beat up the three DPP monitors when they ran away to the airport for safety. They never returned to the centre. They called a friend from town to pick them up from the airport.

There are such stories of violence against DPP and UTM monitors in some parts of the country. But there is also good news: MEC officers remained vigilant and MCP’s plan of tampering with results in favour of Lazarus Chakwera, collapsed.

MEC chairperson Jane Ansah’s question, “who gave you Tipp ex?” has not been understood up to now. It is a reflective question for all of us because Ansah is aware Tipp-Ex was introduced by the MCP and her question was meant to help us to think deeply about MCP’s hidden agenda. In addition, her question was meant to inspire journalists to investigate Tipp Ex in the election.

Tipp Ex failed. MCP did not rig the election because MEC systems were tight and staff tabulated results professionally. MEC’s professionalism annoyed MCP so much that the party started drama to damage the elections that were managed professionally, according to party monitors and electoral institutions, both local and foreign. MCP’s demand for Ansah to resign is the work of Chakwera. He is as such. He loves being what he is not.
It is not the first time for Chakwera to behave so. The story of his life shows a man who does what he preaches against or a man who preaches against what he does.

In 2018, the Ministry of Finance disbursed K4 billion development fund to all parliamentarians. Chakwera and his MCP approved the allocation in Parliament on Thursday, 1 March, 2018, and received an amount allocated to each MP. The same Chakwera sent his boy Timothy Mtambo, a well-known MCP functionary, who trades under human rights activism, to organise demonstrations against the development funding. Chakwera joined the demonstrations against funding that he supported, approved and received.  

Chakwera portrays himself as an angel sent from heaven but he is not. Instead, he is a troubled human being ready to shed blood to quench his hunger for power. He has failed to take MCP to victory twice and the next move was for him to resign to pave way for someone else. Instead, Chakwera is clinging to MCP’s presidency, searching for a third term via the court. It is funny, isn’t it? How Chakwera is managing to fool MCP for him to remain the party’s president.

This is a Chakwera who, during a press briefing on 2 November 2018, called Mutharika a “pathological liar.” Yet in reality, Chakwera is that “pathological liar.” He has, for example, been referring to present demonstrations as peaceful yet allowing people from his area to terrorise motorists on Kasiya Road. Some motorists had to pay up to K20,000 to buy their way.

Chakwera is requiring MCP MPs to ferry hundreds of people armed with pangas from rural areas of central region to the capital for demonstrations, a story that journalists have chosen to ignore. This is a Chakwera who asked MEC to release results less than 24 hours after voting closed, saying he had won and “I am the commander-in-chief” of the armed forces. And within 48 hours, the same Chakwera obtained an injunction restraining MEC from announcing results of the presidential poll.  

This is a Chakwera who failed to make an alliance with UTM and lost the election. Now he is fooling his supporters with a post-election alliance with UTM. Doing what he preached against and preaching against what he is doing. And his supporters have fallen for the childish tactic.   This is a Chakwera who, two months before elections, was planning disturbing the elections. Yet he poses as if he did not have such an evil plan with Mtambo.
He is a Malawian but speaks with an African-American tongue. He lost an election, yet he claims victory.
This Chakwera, always wanting what he is not.

    Chakwera is a joke. The guy grew up and went to school in Malawi from class 1 up to his undergraduate studies at Chancellor College. How he lost his mother tongue after a short stint in the USA is anybody’s guess. How many people have stayed abroad from Malawi and have suddenly changed to talk like those in the country they were? Had he studied in Portugal or Spain could he have behaved the same?
    That is exactly what his brother from Kasungu did as well. With him he had to communicate with his fellow countrymen through an interpreter. What is wrong with you MCP gurus? Not surprised with the pastor’s tantrums. He usually puts on an act, donning a coat which is too big for his size, always found in no-mans-land, therefore a political prisoner based on self-esteem syndrome. He should just thank God that he built a house on stolen proceeds from MCP well wishers donations.

    chakwera is a stupid fool, the guy with no direction. all he was born for is to be a leader and thats all he is up to. he is a bad leader who performs badly; i wonder why some fools in a class of tosh backs this crap? he had been at the top of assemblies for good 25 years with nothing tangible, even a mere kindergatten he can’t point to us. he is so stupid. he canningly forced out his potential contenders at the mcp convention with the help of youth league crap to remain the life president of mcp and is laughable to see some empty headed crap defending this rubbish. he is a dictator whose running mate is the swindler of donor funds in the infamous cashgate. don’t be cheated, you lost the elections and apm carried the day. chakwera in his selfishness is killing your party and has proven to be useless. mcp crap are you telling me that the only guy you have to lead you is this crap? gone are days when leadership is one man’s show.

    i think its high time we consult a psychatrist. do you remember the funny story of a so called self aclaimed president of the non existing republic of mulanje and thyolo? i’m sure you know how the story ended? the guy who was over whelmingly supported by winiko and his colonies ended up damping them in psych wonderland with their mouths agap. sỏmetimes these people make us fools ànd its time to have the power hungry politicians undergo psych exams before fully accepting them into the arena. who knows may be we are dealing with another mental candidate who will lead his followers into yet another psych wonderland leaving them arms akimbo ànd kukamwa yasaaaaa.
