APM was a great leader: What we are seeing now is garbage in and garbage out


Mutharika, the great leader

What we need to do in Malawi is to forget and cut out all the rubbish that Chakwera, Mtambo and Chilima used to lie to us about APM and DPP. I am not saying that DPP was perfect, no it was not but for us to insist that DPP was bad on Chakwera’s wacky intelligence is not good for our conversation about our country.

APM was a great leader about and from whom we can learn a lot about leadership for our country if we can remove narrative from Chakwera from our conversation.

I have noticed that there are some people that are still insisting on the Chakwera’s narrative as basis for speaking against DPP despite that narrative being proven hogwash in many ways. The best way of proving this man wrong is to look at what he is doing to see if it is different from what he was accusing APM about and if he is bringing us better outcomes. The fact is that we are seeing garbage in and garbage out.

He made accusations about Albino killings and yet he has a report in his office that he doesn’t want Malawians to see.

He was very critical about the economy and promised that he was going to be the solution but today the inflation is high, there is no forex, no fuel, etc thing that were far much better when we had APM at the helm. He accused the people that were running our economy very well of lying and even arrested them and yet he is failing to provide IMF and the courts with evidence for the accusations.

He talked about nepotism and tribalism and yet he shameless continue to employ his family and filling public position with people from his tribe.

There is more we can write about but the simple reason to stop parading the Chakwera narrative against APM and DPP is that these Tonse people are liars, hypocrites and worse still, all talk but no trousers. Continuing to use what Chakwera was saying as arguments is turning all of us dull and wasting our time and slowing down our progress.

  1. The most unfortunate thing Malawians need to know is that “Chakwera is not a leader nor is he a politician”. He is merely a person who continued dreaming of becoming a head of state just because other capable individuals did it and were successful. He thought leadership was easy and straightforward. At times it becomes straightforward depending on the team you put together to work for you. If you choose GAGA like what he has himself surrounded with, then delivery of any sort is impossible.

    Anytime soon the country is going to ground to a halt in all the services. Right now we are surviving on borrowed finances and time. This was affirmed by the NOCMA Director who said the country has run out of Forex but has enough MK which unfortunately cannot be used to import goods and services. To worsen things, the little there is is unreasonably getting depleted by poor planning by the inexperienced people put together by the Principal. Now because the services and infrastructure were left unattended when this administration engaged their spending gear, it is literally impossible to start rectifying or repairing the whole mess. Every penny they borrow or is collected by MRA goes straight into spending and enrichment. The next thing will be people eating each other due to lack of food. If Chakwera was a politician things would have been alright politically, and if he was a leader at least the economic side of the equation could have been ticking. The person is none of the above hence all the helter-skelter stance all Malawians are subjected to. Day in, day out spending time on Petrol Garages with jerricans to buy a drop of it whose acquisition is being controlled and guarded by the Police.

    Word of solace to Malawians is “Continue to persevere till 2025 for we deliberately chose this calamity ourselves. We embraced a hyena in a goats-skin. Yes, kutaya Nkhwali kuthamangira nkhanga kutsatira mawanga”. Chizungu ndi anyamata oganiza bhoo atigwiritsa fuwa la moto. Awa kutibera sanati chifukwatu anthuwa anali osauka kwa zaka 26. Pano akufuna kusoka zigamba za zaka 26 mu zaka 5, zithekaaa? Your guess is as good as mine.
