‘Beware of gossipmongers’: Thyolo chief advises Mutharika against breaking ranks with VP Chilima

The only Lhomwe chief who is also a right hand man for President Peter  Mutharika on Saturday stunned people who gathered at Ndata Farm for Bingu wa Mutharika’s memorial service when he took time advising the President that he should be cautions of bad advisors who may be massaging his ego for ill intentions.

Traditional Authority Ngolongoliwa was amongst speakers during the late Bingu memorial service.

He said there were some people who always want to bring confusion and peddle lies said he should guard against them.

“These people will come to you will various pieces of advice but not all will be correct,” said Ngolongoliwa.

Ngongoliwa further advised Mutharika that no advisor should separate him with his Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima.

“If you start fighting amongst yourself it’s very dangerous because what will happen is that your Vice will be going and talking ill of you somewhere and you will also be disgruntled somewhere, but always remain united for your beautiful future,” said Ngolongoliwa.

The chief said the governing party should set focus in serving the people and ensure it delivers.

During the entire speech by the chief, Mutharika fondly known as APM was seen nodding his head agreeing to Ngolongoliwa’s advice.

In his remarks at the function, Mutharika expressed gratitude to the nation for joining him and the Mutharika family as they commemorated their brother, father, son and hero, among other things.

“The family was not able to hold this memorial ceremony for the past three years because the previous government grabbed Ndata Farm from us. We were denied access to this place,” said Mutharika.

“As we renew our pledge on this third anniversary of our loss, we also take pride in the progress we are making in building on his socio-economic dreams towards a better life for all and a more united society,” he said adding, “today must be better than yesterday and tomorrow should bring more joy than today.”

He described late Bingu as a selfless man whose sacrifices made it possible for Malawi to rise from her knees and become the second fastest growing economy in the World after Qatar.

“We are here to remember Bingu who was a selfless man and we salute him because through his determined struggles and efforts, he put our country on the promise of a just, united and prosperous country.”

The President, while asking Malawians to emulate the life of the late Bingu, also assured the gathering that his administration would do everything possible to ensure that they have access to basic services and more economic opportunities.

APM said his brother taught him a lot of things such as never to do anything halfway, how to live a fruitful life as well as never to judge others.

“As Bingu rests, let us do our part so that when our time comes, we should leave a better country than we found it,” he said.

During the event Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Secretary General Ekren Kudontoni called for undivided royalties towards the current President Mutharika.

Kudontoni said DPP will respect only those who helped DPP to take over government during the four way tripartite elections.

    when it comes to issue of VP, let the president decides who to work with. in Malawi we vote for the president not the vice infact we should amend our constitution to allow the president to appoint and fire the vice president at will. What we have now is all wrong and zimakulisa mtima vice president knowing kuti sangachisedwe. Secondly my humble advice to the incumbent VP and those to come is that it is not a must that Vice presidents should succeed to power no. Ndiye osamakula mtima apa ayi.

    zachilendo. Mfumu ngati iyi sindimaganiza kuti ku Malawi kuno ingapezeke. GOD bless u chief. To other chiefs, take this good example. Wise words

  13. Charombanthu says:

    Wise words and advice from this chief. These are the people the president needs to consider for positions of Advisors. He might not have gone through the corridors of institutions of higher learning; but he knows what it means to be a leader from the vast experience that he has leading his subjects. Takunyadilani amfumu… Mawu omanga dziko/mudzi.

  14. Issa Kabudula says:

    Good words from the chief and bad words from Kudontoni – how can the man as a secretary say we will respect those who have helped us? He must retract his words and learn to be the leader. Leaders don’t live on the past, they forge the future.

  15. Dr Moo Tha Leeker says:

    This chief is wise, the first time to hear as such. If there are no misunderstandings between people, things will always be FINE AND EASY. Developments will be speeding like a flowing river, objectives being achieved in no time, peace all over.
    Emulate from this chief other chiefs, where advise is due, advise well.

  25. mfumusinyasa says:

    This chief really loves APM. its these bootlickers that drove Bingu into the ditch then started scattering like mice. If APM wants to know the truth he should always vonsult this honest chief. Tonse tikuonera momwemo but we have no platform nde timangodikira zidzachitike basi. DPP driving on the wrong lane for some time now

  26. Mphangela says:

    Amfumu ulemu wanu .kumeneku ndiye kulangiza osati so called kondwani.wayamba liti ndale ameneyu.akweni mulangizeni ameneyu

  27. From the look of things, I think education and maturity are quiet different emanating fromwhat the chief has reasonably advised the president on mutual relationship between APM and the VEEP . Bravo. Bravo, on T/A for yr fruitful advise. That’s what we call building the nation, not what Nankhumwa has done for ordering the president to institute fresh inquiry on former president Joice. Banda .

  28. zymology says:

    this so called ngolingoliwa shoud immediately get nankhumwa’s position,he deserves to be a minister not this akila entertainer~nankhumwa to hell!

  34. Impi says:

    Fact chief, not za Nankhumwa, very stupid man. Always bringing confusion. JB Project wats that. Malabishi.

  35. Oooh the Chief sees what all Malawians sees and its up to Peter to take this piece of advice or leave it,bravo Senior Chief Ngongoliwa.

  36. wachilungamo says:

  39. Kanonono says:

    These are the people this country needs. You call a spade a spade.

  40. Good advice by the chief to APM and my advice to the chief when you become the adviser to apm you wil 4get this for sure

  41. Trevor jere says:

  44. dyson says:

    Chief ya nzeru

  45. alekekuba says:

    Zoona koma in the spirit of not shielding anyone, can the president follow up on the casgate scandal by Saulos Chilima fully investigated and concluded by ACB?

    Or is this corruption of the highest ranks well shielded!

  46. he says:

    THE CHIEF WAS ADVISING APM NOT TO GROOM ATUPELE AGAINST CHILIMA FOR THE PRESIDENCY

  47. mbadwa ya Mangochi says:

    That’s wise words from from a wise King, a man who really loves APM unlike all those who are busy creating unnecessary political tension that will only work to the disadvantages of our nation and APM’s leadership at large. I wish if my president was sitting more often with the likes of Ngongoliwas if he wants to build a good leadership legacy that will echo across the centuries long after he is gone… Totally in support of Ngongoliwas wise advice.

  48. Denguzman. says:

    Bravo Ngongoliwa. Watch out gossgpers ur days are numbered coz all we need in our country is peace and love.

  49. Denguzman. says:

    Bravo Ngongoliwa. Watch out gossgpers ur days are numbered coz all we need in our country is peace and love. Amene muli mmaudindo panopa ziwani kuti maudindo anuwo anthu enanso anakhalapo .

  50. Tiyeninazo says:

    Ku opposition Ku Wawa kkkkk .mutukwana five years….

  51. Dr Titoh says:

    Silence is a gorden ,speach is silver

  52. DOBO says:

    Unfortunately,I haven’t listened to the wise chief’s advice because am no longer interested in listening to MBC radio and tv. I think it was very good advice and the chief really know the typical Malawian.Most Malawians are fond of giving opportunistic advices to those people from whom favours will be gained .This is big underlying problem not only to president but also at the workplace,church,mosque,etc.Most advices to high ranked people turned out to be lies This problem is like cancer destroying unknowingly until advanced stage.The chief knew what he was talking about because among the speakers he was the only one who spent more time with typical Malawians in typical Malawian setings in practical ways not from books.

  53. Getu says:

    Amfumu God bless you did not know kuti a liponso alomwe ena anzeru ngati late Bishop Zuza. It’s only fools who will ignore your wise counsel

  54. Mr presedent mveran malangizo abwino ngat amenewa Mfumu yamzelu.

  55. john says:

    The Chief said it well.Ben Phiri and Chisale are bad advisors to APM.Am happy Ben Phiri is no longer sitting near the President but now sits next to Mukhito and the rest of State House staffers.Thus where he belong.APM keep it up

  56. wise chief but never listen to the speech

  57. Achimidzimidzi says:

    I wish this was the only story representing the anniversary, I wouldn’t angry. And surely, I would congratulate and join APM. After all, APM is not Angel.

    However, the very last paragraph of this story is a very sad ending.

  58. Mdikasambi Msazafulu. says:

    The only Lomwe chief who is abit wiser than other lomwe people like Nankhumwa an educated savage. Nosense creature.

  59. Mulukunuwa maluku says:

    Dpp,s kudontoni and nankhumwa are spoiling our beloved and reformed party bwana APM take heed of chiefs advice

  60. Miseu folo says:

    The Chief was spot on! It’s true the President should really be careful in sieving the advice he gets. Some people are bent on causing a rift between him and his VP SKC. All chifukwa cha Mitima yoipa, yansanje ndi ufiti waku khwapa. APM and SKC are good together, they are a perfect match, they compliment each other! Akakhala pauwiri pawo za bwino koma mfiti zina sizikondwera zinayamba kumukhomera VP ma 6 inches, zinyau! Ndiye tu dzulo Mfumu Ngongoliwa yakuikani pa dzuwa! APM and SKC keep together! Musamvere anthu opusa amabodzawo akapasule! May God protect both of you!

  61. Ngwenyama says:

    My beloved A P M pls take what this chief is said ,we love u and we will help u

  62. chipembere says:

    Big up our chief…… auzeni zoona.

  63. Mapyiya says:

    Ndiye mlomwe ameneyo wamva kanthu ameneyo ,sangangoitulutsa imeneyo

  64. Sokosi says:

    The Gossiper number one to the President is Dausi. He is ill advising the President using Chisale who is his close friend. Peter Mutharika minus these gossipers = an excellent leader.

  65. Bertha says:

    Good chief all the chiefs in Malawi should emulate his bold stand in advising the government

  66. Wanganyewanganye mtumbuka says:

    Our APM & SKC Please pick this piece of advice. Let LOVE COAT & LEAD BOTH OF YOU. We love you osati zinazi.

  67. Nkhombokombo says:

    Ngolongoliwa(Chief) is a clever chief who can sometimes see the direction of the tide. SG is power hungry and myopic, his utterances are equaled to those of Nankhumwa. They don’t know the game of “You today, me tomorrow”. These guys are an embarrassement to DPP. People nowadays turn off their TV sets when its time for DPP’s rallies. These people,(KN and EK) have turned DPP to dpp a Phada game field. Watch out! People are watching! The learned people at times can olso be looked upon as Clowns. Dr Banda went to School and had many reputable degrees but ended up being a dictator and so too Pro. Bingu.

  68. Alufeyo says:

    APM will not break ranks with SKC as long as the VP stops playing his dirty marketing tricks by undermining his boss. Chilima must understand that he has no office and that he performs duties delegated to him by the president. Unfortunately Chilima and his Africaner must realise that there is one president. The reforms are not a one man show and their success depends on APM.

  69. Yesaya Dziko says:

    I would wish APM should have good advisors if he has any at all. Check MSB sale and paying off bad loans. A mfumu akunena zoona.

  70. honourable says:

    The T A Ngolingoliwa is a gentleman, he spoke and other pple were not happy with his speech. They looked down. Bakili muluzi is fake, i saw him laughing when Nankhumwa talked nonsense.lets hope u ve heard wat ur chief said

    1. So you wanted Bakili to weep when Nakhumwa talked his garbage?
      You are the fake one,Atcheya is genuine and happy man obviously he don’t get intimidated easily
