New regional governor for south, DPP’s Charles Mchacha says Chief has right to react

Sawali presented the warning at a developmental rally President Mutharika held at the Balaka Primary School ground on Monday after he officially opened Balaka Admarc Cotton Ginnery.

T/A Sawali advised the President to maintain his calm and always keep quite and let his subordinates fight the battle for him.

“Don’t be shaken by those who say bad about you. It only pains us and now let me assure you Mr. President, we will be the one’s fighting back on your behalf. You should not answer them back just concentrate on developmental issues” said Sawali attracting ululation from the DPP followers present at the rally.

“I am behind you because I was employed by you and nobody else” he added.

He also blamed some Malawians and opposition parties who are saying the Democratic Progressive Party has done nothing since returning into power in May 2014.

According to Sawali, DPP has done a lot including the introduction of community colleges among other things.

DPP regional governor Chalres Mchacha said the chief has the right to defend the President from “irresponsible criticism.”

On his part, Mutharika said he will not fight back but warned he will hit back at opposition and other critics if they go beyond.

    Mr president musamale ndimafumu mukafuse muluzi samafunaso ana mpusisa chondechonde samalani a president

  4. Sapitwa says:

    Every party followers support their leaders at all cost. Three days ago we heard Menyani supporting his Master Chakwera on his dictatorial habits similar to those of Kamuzu. He never confronted his boss but instead blamed some alien external forces aimed at distabilizing his party. PP bootlickers are defending their woman President for making appointments without any consultations.
    All these defenses are in the good name freedom in Democracy.

  5. Chakwanuleka says:

    Mafumu azikhala anthu opita ku sukulu. Mbutuma ngati izi sizingathandize dziko. DPP has miserably failed to run this government and the chief should have been the first one to see this. But illiterate as he is, no wonder.

  6. phwaks says:

    Mr President, this chief is one of the crazy supporters that will have your name dirtened. Remember your brother’s supporters who promised to fight on his behalf. You neither the Ndyomba chief can dare to fight Malawians. I have warned you ooooh!!!

  7. Khanyuwani says:

    What good can come from a mdyomba of a chief? Alahandulira…Muhammad anasulura. A stupid dyomba trying to appease an imbecile one-toothed he goat masquerading as president, o shame.

  8. mphatso says:

    empty tins make a lot of noise

  9. Angoo says:

    Where is the Law Society grouping. The chief has to be summoned to court for insinuating violence.

  10. Kadakwiza says:

    Malawi will never develop if we have people like Sawali. Mr Sawali seems as if he is staying outside Malawi. This chief called Sawali is useless he will not help us.

    Dziko lino ndilitembeleledwa. Amfumuwa akudyana ndi Peter. Mathanyula at its best.

  12. Getu says:

    Community colleges??? How about important issues that no one wants to discuss:
    – 3 million people are facing hunger
    – Malawi Kwacha is plummeting downward at an alarming rate to the dollar
    – Malawi economy is in shambles
    – Health care is in the toilet
    – Cost of living is extremely high

    I can go on and on

  15. HPB says:

    The chief’s remarks are regrettable. Such utterances remind one of the Kamuzu days when a government was not supposed to be criticised.

    As a country, the meaning of democracy has not taken root.

    One wishes the President had corrected the chief and told him that the government welcomes criticism because it is there to serve the people. He should have even gone further to tell the people that the Constitution provides for freedom of speech, and that government is of the people, for the people and by the people.

    Sadly, instead the President issued threats to “deal with” the opposition. What is meant by ” dealing with”? Why not positively respond by saying “I will prove them wrong” by doing this and that and appeal for unity to solve the many challenges?

  16. me says:

    If I was the president, I would erase this chief from my friends list. Your friends tell you the truth wether good or bad. Your enemies encourage you even when you make mistakes. Peter muntharika should be very careful with such people

    iwe sawali ndiwe chitsiru, Galu ndipo mbuzi yotheratu ngati APM yomweyo. chitsiru chanucho chilibe nzeru momweso onse omusatira iye ndi zitsirudi.

    mbava yanuyo yachitapo nchiyani?? Azungu amenya nkhwangwa pa mwala kuti ndalama sangapereke mumanja a mbava zonse za DPP.

    bwerani kuno Ku Nyasaland (northern region) muzayetsele kukuwa motere. muziderera anthu atulo akumwera komweko. kumasatira chigewenga (APM) NDE kuti inuso ndinu chigewenga

    Oh poor thief… sorry ‘chief’! Just that there is a thin line to distinguish ‘chief’ and ‘thief’. ha ha ha… It was Malawi at 51 last year. Now we are getting to Malawi at 52. You mean we still tolerate this shit! Listen, we are backwards because of these morons called ‘chiefs’. Nice to hear we have slowly started to stop them in our villages. Sooner we remove them in our villages the better.

  19. Evans says:

    …..very SAD!

  20. issa Kabudula says:

    Am on the side of the chief – the Malawi people got the problem of not appreciating their leaders and you are expecting the leaders to work hard in bringing development?
    Its high time as Malawians to start working together in development – time of politics is over till 2019, this is development time.

    Every outing of the president is money – every talking is money, for peters quiet diplomacy is part of economy and we must appreciate him. The president earn high allowances when they are to leave the palace and come out to the public – he is avoiding that, appreciate him and so is Chilima, young and intelligent.

    They TA is on ARV drug , he lost his second wife and a step daughter as well who he was screwing . He like young children which he has employed at his Mtchesi Filling Station , he is busy abusing these under aged children . Can the human rights guys pounce on him please ?

  22. phiri kumtengera says:

    nde uchitsiluwo zimenezi zikhale zonena a TA? Mukukhwewa dzamba mmakokamu eti?

    Mafumu kudzinyozesa bwanji! Ndalama imazunguzadi munthu ndithu.Afumu kukhala agavanala a chipani kkkkkkkkkkk

  25. Phillip Samuel says:

    stupid T.A.he know nothing but steal coupons.

  26. Nabetha says:

    I’m sure that the TA didn’t mean what he said at the rally, in fact he was mocking his boss that since he came to power the only noticeable development he brought is the useless community colleges.

  27. Yobe says:

    The chief is mad take him to mental hospital where there is no drugs and ask him again

  28. wilfred ziba says:

    very funny, is the chief telling me that once the president leaves office he will also resign, critics will be there no matter how well the President may perform, you have to know that we are living in a democratic period and you can’t take away people’s right of speech, to the President, hitting back at your critics no matter how beyond it maybe will help nobody in Malawi, you are a role model please just continue acting like one, those close to you are just thinking of maintaining there jobs by feeding you will bad ideas, there intention is just to please you so in return they can pocket a fat cheque for there families. they think of no one but themselves. You are a good president and I believe you will turn the economic crisis we have around, don’t forget to call God in every plan you have for the better of Malawi. Am not a politician am just after making this country a better place to live again.
