Chakwera decries Malawi govt’s ‘dark deeds’

Leader of the Opposition and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Dr Lazarous Chakwera has accused President Peter Mutharika and his government of lacking of transparency and acting in dark corners on the sale of what used to be state-owned Malawi Savings Bank (MSB).

Chakwera: Blasts Mutharika government’s dark corner meetings

The sale came after government wrote off the loans obtained at MSB, most of which were borrowed by private businesses and individuals who are financiers of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

“It seems to me, that the virus that we are dealing with is not a contagious disease that would have brought banks to their needs in this country. It is a practice, by those in authority that have made the institutions of this land non-functional, when they should be functional at certain times,” noted Chakwera.

The opposition leader pointed out that MSB was “deliberately brought to its knees” by those in authority.

“It seems evident in times of desperation, that is the only recourse that one justifies but it is because there has been a series of decisions that have not been right for the Malawian people,” said Chakwera.

Before the sale, Treasury asked the Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) to issue K6 billion promissory notes to take the toxic loans off the MSB books.

“Ten years ago they said that this bank would have been all right, but what has happened between that time and today corruption and fraud and the fact that we have used public institutions to finance our personal agendas, is what has killed this bank.

“Today, we are all saying that there is sense in having it sold because it has become a liability and heavy burden on government. It is the same people that have led government that have truly ripped us off and ripped every Malawian off,” said Chakwera.

He continued: “We must understand that the decisions that we make today, will make us tomorrow. Every decision that administrations have made in this country, on behalf of Malawians and saying that they are good for Malawians, have brought more misery to Malawians. Look at all the companies that have been sold.”

Chakwera bemoaned that such crucial decisions affect the poor Malawian citizen that pays the price in the end.

He also accused government of Mutharika of disregarding what Parliament can recommend when it went ahead to sell the bank despite the House had recommended halting the process.

“What we are saying in here is that we are telling Malawians that, in fact, Parliament should not even have wasted time talking about this because it is none of their business. What we are saying to Malawians is that we respect other arms of government much more than we respect Parliament,” said Chakwera.

The MCP president state that government was engaged in “dark meetings” on the matter of MSB sale because “dark deeds were intended to take place.”

He reminded the government that it is still governing by the consent of the people.

“We are still responsible to those who put us in office. We cannot just say that we are not arrogant by word of mouth when the actions demonstrate that we are actually arrogant,” said Chakwera.

Another MCP lawmaker Vitus Dzoole Mwale said of the controversial MSB sale: “ This DPP-led government has embarrassed us.”

The Malawian government has disposed of 75 percent of its shareholding in the MSB to Financial Discount House Holdings.

    Any sane Malawian knows that Pitala has failed Malawians.Even the illiterate brainwashed people from his goliyati village in Thyolo are crying like chicken.Pitala alibe nawo ntchito apart from dancing their daughters bare chested showing their breasts during Mulhako’s functions.Palibe chimene chikuyenda masiku ano ndi mzake wa Ben Phiri akumameta punky masiku ano.Kaya zimenezo akumamumeta ndi Dausi ma skills anaphunzira Ku upayoniya kaya?

  6. Rift valley says:

    Malawians were told by one British diplomat, soon after the cashgate issue surfaced, and prior to the 2014 elections, that the future of the country was up to Malawians to sort out. All the signs were there that we wolud not progress with PP or DPP in power as these are one and the same; descendants of UDF. We still went ahead voting the thives into power. UDF’s joining Government proves beyond any reasonable doubt that these are the same people

    And is it any one that DPP gurus are pesturing oDPP into giving their Indian, cum British business people lucrative procurements? This is a contination of Cashgate just as is the clandestine sale of MSB despite Parliament rejecting the proposal and the general public protesting. APM really insulted Malawians by promising an enquiry into the proposed sale only to go ahead before the findinge of the results of the investigations are published. He sure took us all for idiots

  7. Salvador says:

    Dr Chakwera and your fellow opposition MPs..what has your complaining achieved thus far? You and your crew are just crying like small girls instead of taking meaningful action. you mean the whole parliament is toothless and cant do anything on this issue..you that you are unable to mobilise masses for a good course..why should i vote for you again in 2014 when all you are doing is tell us what we already know.. in Greece the leader of opposition has resigned for failing to achieve what he promised his people..we demand better

    fear of unknown,why cant you wait and see what this will yield in the end, if we politicise everything we will end up pointing fingers at one another instead of concentrating to some aspects of activities that can develop our country. the fear of cashgate should not make us to lose our peace just because we think that these people wants to steal our money. Mr Chakwera give your friends a chance, this was innitiated during Joyce Banda administration where were you that time, the PP sat down, scruitinise the thing and DPP did the same and saw that it was something profitable. so lets respect their decision then tidzayankhule tikaona zotsatilazo

    Malawi needs a clean leader
    Osati mbava za K24 billion (PP)

    Come 2019, MCP BOMAAAAAAA

  21. that is why at the national independence prayers, the clergy said let us all as malawians pray for our country because dziko lathu likupita ku phompho. PUSH means P-PRAY, U-UNTIL, S-SOMETHING, H-HAPPENS. Malawi let us PUSH.

  31. saulos says:

    This is time for malawians to wake up coz these the said people of DPP are nw taking malawians as fools and people of NO say in decisions making and this shows true tears of Mbendera when he was announcing PETER MUTHALIKA as a winner of 2014 general elections but always DPP should be remembering that this is not offical posts they are handling its all in the hands of us malawians to keep them or to let them leave!!! Why DPP always you are there to destroy our beloved Malawi?? I curse the day Bakili Muluzi came to knew Bingu coz its all when these fates started… Mulli you r not an Icon and soon all these will follow u again

  32. Politics is all controlled by dark forces. God does not do politics. The minute Chakwera decided to abandon the work of The Lord to venture into politics he personally accepted the dark deeds that go with politics. Besides that you’re saying the truth but I don’t think that your truth will be effective cos it’s being applied on the wrong playing field. Show me a politician who has ever had people’s interest at heart??????? They just sing but they do the opposite. Some other commentators who are also dull all what they can say is a kumpoto this & that. Our problem is not about where one comes from. We had Chihana he came like a Messiah, well principled but he ended up dancing to the tunes of Bakili Muluzi. There were well educated guys from the North in the names of Dr Mapopa Chipeta, Dr Mazunda or Mzunda just to mention a few but some, what good did they do other than dancing the tune of Muluzi. The likes of Robson Chirwa they used to crawl on their bellies in the presence of Kamuzu Banda just to prove to Kamuzu that they’re not worth to come to him on their feet do stop the nonsense of Atumbuka this Atumbuka that. Just think that you’re Malawians period.

  33. x large says:

    DPP is selling banks during the nights, but MCP was killing our father’s our mothers our sisters and our brothers our neighbors during the day, which is better?? the whole country was living in morbid fear, MCP was just so merciless. Persecution was their core business, persecuting innocent lives, forcing innocent souls including pregnant mothers and unborn children to buy party membership cards as if all were MCP members. Today, we still remember that. we’ve not forgotten and we will never forget. There is no difference between Aldof Hitler’s Nazi regime and MCP’s regime. And MCP has not, up until today made any sincere public apology for the wicked atrocities it inflicted on this nation. In fact I wished MCP as a party could have one day been taken to court, disbanded altogether as it still reminds this nation of cruelty of highest degree. Chakwera being abusaa, somebody I thought knew the Bible and hated wickedness is now at forefront leading this wicked party. MCP will rule Malawi again but not in the near 1000 years and Chakwera and Jesse (whose very parents were exiled to Zimbabwe during MCP’s rulership) should know this. DPP is evil yes, I agree but to say MCP are angels is naivety of highest degree. In fact DPP’s wickedness is much better than MCP’s, so shut up Chakwera, shut uppppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. munthu wankulu says:

    gvt has given us reasons for the sale, and the buyer has given us facts about the bank . give us your facts, osangosusa coz u r in opposition. the gvt facts are even justified coz it was initiated by the previous gvt which is in opposition today and have joined mcp in opposition protesting a thing they initiated ………..anthu openga inu, mwasweka mutu eti. fosekeeeeee. if you are justified take legal action instead of just making noise in the media

  35. MBWENUMBWENU says:

    MCP president be sober in your opinion, it seems you just want a political mileage. you said most village people (whom you claim to represent) will suffer when the bank is sold. Now the buyers have signed an agreement not to close any branch or agency you are still making noise. in fact the bank is working on improving computer/network system which has been an outstanding problem most customers face, customers visit the bank for more than a week just to access their money coz of network, do you know this? you cant know coz you call it bank yachimidzi, yaalimi and your accounts ali ku standard, national and abroad. So you would wish the ppo to be in such a situation for the sake of gvt ownership…… I doubt your critical thinking, you just repeat the media opinion, kutengeka basi, no wonder your American tongue when speaking english, munthu mchewa ti zaka tochepa ku America koma kutengera chili chonse, your friends have been there for 20, 40 or more years. Give us facts please about MSB not kumangosokosera kuti kwekwekwekweeeeeee, shupit

  38. chatonda says:

    This is the time bwana Chakwera to move around the country telling them through your meetings about these dark deeds. This will help in the long run. Please do not be soft spoken about these thieves but hit and hit hard so that they can see themselves going into the drain and the card…attack, what else do you expect with such arrogance/ People will be angry here and they will act to the best of their ability to male someone learn for the last time.

  39. chibwatiko mbekamachuni says:

    Those that think they are clean, let them cast the first stone at APM.I rest my case

  40. MOG says:

    Pakhalekhale these dark deeds will come to backfire, no matter what. Kuno ndi kunja.

  41. bozwell makaranga says:

    What the DPP govt has done is nothing short criminal activity. These criminal acts are a good way of identifying the character of a government. As Virgill states:
    “From a single crime know the nation”.
    Just by this single crime where the nation’s bank has been looted mobster style is a hallmark of a country governed by wanton thieves

  42. lol says:

    Just to add what Chakwera said, what the government told you about 92 billion cashgate report was all a lie and opposite.

  43. Malawian says:

    Bwampini akutizunza

  44. kes munthali says:

    A few facts not this nonesense from Chakwera

    1. The sale of Msb was approved when joyce banda was in power. Had PP won it would have gone a head with the sale . So all these Mulli business is ma rubish.

    2. Msb was sold though an open and transparent bidding process that was advertised both locally in the papers and also intenationally. Even you bastard chakwera you knew that the bank eas for sell and it was within your right if you had the money you were intitled to bid for it.

    3. Msb was not on its knees as you chackwera would like to fool people into beliving and to try to sell this fallacy shows what sort of slimeball you are.

    4. Banks are in the business of issuing debts( ngongole), even you chakwera have 90 million kwacha debts though the same banks. Banks issue debts then make money though interest on repayments. When people fail to keep up with payments the surities used when issuing the loans are taken by the bank. Thats why mulli has lost his businesses and property to the same Msb…in banking also they is a thing called bad debts its an acceptable part of the business. Only an idiot like you would then question why msb has people owning it money.

    Lastly any senseble person knows that government should not be running businesses. Businesses should be left in the hands of the private sector.
    The role of the government is to facilitate a conducive enviroment for businesses to mushroom. You cant have government companies competing with those in private hands, simply because they have unlitimited access to tax money therefore an unfair advantage over there competition.

    My advise to this dunderhead to to step his game up and to stop sprutting nonses all the time.
    And also get better advisors.

  45. jcholomandenga says:

    Mr Chakwera as leader of the opposition should stop complaining and tell people what he intends to do about this. or is he saying that as the opposition ,they have no power to stop this happening?. If so , then what are they doing in parliament?.The role of the opposition is not just to complain, but to make sure that government is kiept accountable to the electorate.

  46. lol says:

    Chakwera is talking sense.

  47. lawrence says:

    Even if Chakwera was President, MSB was going no matter what.

  48. Observer says:

    Way forward? Culprits to this crime must be shown the exit and be prosecuted accordingly. Not all Malawians are so stupid.

  49. Howard Kachipanda says:

    Its not sealed. Akudziwana ndi okha okha

  50. Alekeni adzava tsiku lachiweruzo chifukwa chili ndi mathero ake.

  51. Alinafe Nedi says:

    These are people who always make decisions at night. They know that Malawians like to sleep. Six of them gather at night to take over government. They connive with machinery to announce new government when Malawians are sleeping.. only to wake up and see a government being sworn in. They transact at night. They are busy enriching themselves after they spent a whole half of their lives outside Malawi. They are people of DARKNESS.

  52. MSANA WA PETURO says:

    You think the outlet is sealed? The DPP has already stolen quite alot from this and will continue doing so. It has already devised plans of how to do that. PLEASE DON’T THINK BELOW AVERAGE!

  53. wids says:

    No problem selling to a Malawian even if it was 10mk not that stupid woman who donated a whole plane to her south african corrupt friends and now she is in south africa enjoying with her corrupt friends.

  54. Titani says:

    There is this woman called jb who took a whole presidential jet worth USD22million and claimed she sold it and no money has come yet our stupid opposition think this was right. FDH is a Malawian bank and participated in an open tender and the agent of satan chakwera wants us to hate him.please people stop this nosense and go and check at treasury to find out if money has been paid not just make useless and stupid noise. Mpinganjira is a Malawian and he has bought MSB to continue doing banking business. Get the sense you joulousy mcp.useless.

  55. BigMan says:

    Chakwera, you are useless.

  56. I think DPP & pop have cancer in common cancer of looting cash gate started with DPP and PP followed with theirs PP sold the Jet there we’re DPP sells state owned bank. well we are in trouble in this country we need God for a solution and he has it

  57. Dorobuchi says:

    I have a problem taking Chakwera seriously coz of his bogus American preachers’ accent. Seriously, is that all Dr Chakwera has in an accent? I wonder who would take a Yoh for serious Govt business.

  58. yes the outlet is sealed! but do we kno what DPP & FDH owners have agreed?

    All Chakwera is saying is that parliament shouldnt have bn involved in this mess bcoz it seems DPP had already made up their mind to sale the bank.

    Poor malawi with stupid n arrogant leaders.

  59. koma says:

    I HAVE SAID ALREADY THAT JIMMY LIPUNGA THE HEAD OF THE PRIVATISATION COMMISION (WHATEVER THEY CALL IT NOW) IS THE CHAIRMAN OF OLD MUTUAL BOARD WHO OWN FDH BANK WITH TOM. SO IT WAS IN HIS INTEREST THAT THE SALE SHOULD GO AHEAD.
    OLD MUTUAL NOW OWNS FDH BANK, MSB, NEDBANK, NATIONAL BANK THROUGH PLC AND NOW INBEBANK. THE LAWS OF MALAWI DO NOT ALLOW SUCH OWNERSHIP. OLD MUTUAL HAS A BOARD MEMBER IN ALL THESE BANKS NOW.
    WORSE JIMMY LIPUNGA PRESIDED OVER THE SALE OF FDH TO HIS COMPANY OLD MUTUAL. THIS WAS A DIRECT CONFLICT OF INTEREST SHOW AND IT WAS ILLEGAL.
    MALAWIANS LETS WAKE UP AND DO SOMETHING.

  60. mwanamulanje says:

    MCP imafuna idzapeze pobera nayonso ikadzalowa mboma, in America even the reserve bank is not run by government nde ka MSB nkachani?

  61. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Just by going through the records the following companies were also victims of government decisions and some people lost jobs. MSB is not exception
    1. UTM/ Stage Coach
    2. David Whitehead & Sons
    3. Malawi Railways
    4. MDC
    5.Cold Storage
    6. MIPA
    7. Pressbarkery, PTC, Chipiku stores
    and many more

    Since MSB is done, next will be MHC. its abused as well

  62. Mapwiya M says:

    Malawians lets just shut up.We dont know what is good for us, Tili ndi mantha a uchitsiru and these politians are taking advantage of us. Lets wake up.

  63. Alex Likoswe says:

    Since the MSB issue is under the bridge now, Parliament should be asking the question of usage of proceeds of sale. There is need to put this money into tangible assets other than consumption .

  64. Chimani. Game says:

    Malawians go in the street and start burning up shops and you will see results.if u just sit and complain online this idiot will think u are truly damn

  65. big boy says:

    We want our money from peter and mulli back. The president should not think that we dont know his steps. We are malawi! This is our only country. We cant have another. Some of us are in early thirties while they are in their late seventies. Akuswa phale poti athakale. One word to mr peter mutharika or whatever he calls himself is that this money you borrowed from msb behind mulli will surely be paid back. We are watching you.

  66. Matako says:

    Any fool can rule Malawi country populated by fools who confuse being stupid with being peaceful. How can we allow Mbendera and the police to install a government which never won the election? Why are we Complaining about MSB? What did we expect from A PM and his gang? No pain no gain we must take up arms and fight this evil government. Why should one tribe monopolise all positions in the public service? People let’s wake up and liberate this country.

  67. White Rabbit says:

    If this is all opposition has to come with them they may as well not be called “opposition” but rather just admit they are in on dpp’s plans.

  68. Lobodo says:

    But the American accent that Chakwera has adopted makes it very difficult for most of us to take him seriously. It’s like we have asked a Yoh to lead the opposition. When you listen to him talking, you are put off even when he makes valid assertions. Is it true that Chakwera can only speak in that manner? I always switch off my radio/tv when he starts speaking. He talks like these bogus TV preachers. Most likely the people who follow Malawian politics more closely are serious guys who wouldn’t enjoy Chakwera’s accent.

  69. Optic Computer says:

    Any action, or indeed in action, by government that goes against people’s rights or will, calls for demonstrations. Malawians must go to the streets; it is one of the democratic rights. But because we fear the police (in a democracy), I bet no one will. Marching to hand in letterattes to DCs is a waste because Pitala will simply flush them in the toilet. Make vigils, and he will know that we mean business.

  70. Rodgers Banda says:

    If lawmakers are silent then our country will be doomed. Lawmakers do something
    We voted you into power to build Malawi not to destroy.

  71. Nivindele says:

    Chonde ed Mitole, bweretsa isis kuno ku malawi. We don’t need muli, pita, mwanamveka, chaponda, Ben (collectively known as mlakho brothers). Chonde asilamu tithandizeni

  72. Kukaya wa kukaya says:

    WE NEED A REVOLUTION IN THIS COUNTRY. WE HAVE PUT STRANGERS ON THE STERLING WHEEL.

  73. tsetsefly says:

    DPP is the biggest national liability. A team of armed robbers with no development agenda other than self enrichment. A govt that glorifies wrongs. Mwanaveka messed up but was picked for a ministerial position. Well, you are lucky that Malawi is full of boot lickers and hand clappers who support witches even when evidence is clear that they are robbed of their money.

  74. Now they will sell all members of parliament ,selling process still in progress in dark corner with the buyers.

      Don’t be silly. Most Malawians who love their country have been greatly dismayed by this mafia-like sale of MSB. And for DPP there are many ways of stealing public funds, for example inflated contracts given to related parties so it’s stupid to suggest that the one and only outlet for plunder of public funds has been closed.

      Anyway, karma is a bitch. APM will pay for this recklessness one way or another. This matter is far from over…
