Chakwera says ready to rescue Malawi from thieves and cashgaters

Leader of opposition in parliament Lazarus Chakwera is on a crusade to unseat President Peter Mutharika during the 2019 polls, saying problems rocking the country can come to and only if the Head of State and his Democratic Porgresive Party (DPP) is out of power.

Chakwera: We have thieves in power

Chakwera said this during a political rally on Sunday during a political rally he addressed at Msalura Primary School ground in Salima.

“Malawi is facing unprecedented economic, social and political problems. These problems cannot be solved by the current president, he is not capable of finding solutions to the current problems,” said Chakwera.

The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president cited a number of public thefts like maizegate, the suspicious of the procurement of maize from Zambia as an eample. “He is failing to deal with the matter decisively. He is failing to arrest Dr Chaponda (former minister of agriculture),” he said.

Chakwera said grand corruption, fraud and theft of huge sums of public money has happened under his watch and yet he has done nothing to control the situation which he said is now escalating.

“This is why Malawi is failing to develop, we have weak leadership which needs to be voted out of power in the 2019 elections,” said Chakwera.

He said once voted into government, the MCP would deal with all the problems facing Malawi including having a concrete solution to ridding the country of corruption and fraud.

“MCP is ready to rescue you from thieves and Cashgaters. In 2019, we are prepared to save you from a bunch that is wishing this nation bad.

“We are not turning back. We are determined to rescue this country from thieves who are ransacking it at the moment.”

During the rally, about 73 members from various political parties, including the People’s Party (PP) and People’s Progressive Movement (PPM) announced their defection to MCP.

    I most recently wrote a piece in nyasatimes pertaining to Chihana and Rev.Chakwera in which,I disapproved the two Parties forming a sort of unity ready for 2019 battle.I therefore recant my assertions.The reason I have written this piece to you ,is the fact that as we are nearing the 2019 general elections,all Parties concerned are brushing their shoes.I and my colleagues in diaspora,are worried to the extreme the activities of UDF with bed-fellows MUSLIMS the providers of financial assistance.First and formost,we are in the present situation with Muslims or Islams working hard to establish their roots in our country and region.Regrettably,this situation had been created by Atupele’s father Bakili Muluzi who opened the gates wide for Muslims to come into our country as their strategic future plans to flood Southern Region of Africa with Islamic provocateurs.It remains that ISLAM is a cult bent on spilling blood and destruction hence,we can not afford to fold our hands we are seeing this in Nigeria where innocent children,mothers,old-people and the rest are victims of Islamic blood-letting,in Somalia,there is no government for the last 15 years,we are seeing Syria falling apart for no good reason atall and on the whole,the Middle East is sitting on the volcano ready to explode.For your information Mr.Chakwera,Malawi is singledout as stepping stone towards Southern Africa where Islam is not a factor.What our politicians can do now to halt the inflow of Muslims in our country,is for the progressive political Parties like MCP,AFORD AND PP to join hands to block UDF and DPP unholy alliance.Finally,I have to apologise for my unthoughtfull comments in my previous piece.We have agreed in principle in diaspora to support AFORD and MCP ALLIANCE comes 2019.MY PHONE NUMBER: 011-780-462-6203 and wish you all the best.

    Pakati pa MCP ndi DPP mbava ndani? DPP yomweyo kuti wawawa

    Lazarus Chakwera had not benefitted from the church now he is going for it in politics. What made him desert the church? It’s all about money – to get rich faster. Galu ameneyu akuyesa tonse a Malawi ndi Zidzete. We can see your intentions – Munthu wadyera iwe.

  7. Moya says:

    There are no tangles in MCP. These are mere problems man made by the DPP.

    MCP is only solution to problems ……DPP failed in it’s last 5 years and they have failed now.

  8. Semani says:

    Mr Chakwera just tell people that you are ready to be a big chief to prove to you in 2013 you was busy with Joice Banda and you was backing her when people were demanding her to tell us a bout first cash gate in parliament finally we heard from Mphwiyo kuti munadya nadzo anakugulirani makaka atambala wakuda. you failed to do it m’ machalichimu what about money from Account No 1 lastly politicians are the same don’t cheat us again we are matured enough now

  9. ho go go says:

    you have my vote hon chakwera tired of these thieves

  10. Ngalamayi says:

    So let’s hear more about this ‘concrete solution’. Words are cheap but a plan that will work is more difficult to find and follow. This is what the electorate want to hear: too many years of politicians describing the problem but coming up with no solutions. How will disenchanted donors, investors be persuaded to come back? Corruption and mismanagement are not eliminated overnight.

  11. John Black says:

    Chakwera is not getting specific. He just says: I will do it. he does not say how.

    1. Trace says:

      Explaining how can be suicidal. Remember DPP is waiting for any chance to pounce on ideas or discredit them. Do not underrate this philosopher. He knows what he is saying and doing. His message has not changed: corruption is killing this country and his agenda is to firmly deal with corruption. If he reveals the culprits will develop cocoons.

  12. Pido says:

    which chakwera? You mean the one who is failing to sort ou wrangles in a poor party like MCP? The one being accused of misuse of power in mcp? LAzarus Chakwera who speaks more than he should? I have a feeling the man is simply too power hungry that he can do literally anything to get into power. Malawians are no longer blind. Search me if the landscape will change in 2017

    1. chucks says:

      You have fed too much on propaganda. The misuse of power is propaganda. Have you asked yourself why he wins every court case? Courts can not be as biased as the DPP run MBC. Sometimes learn to search for truth independently. Some of us have and we know that everything we hear about Chakwera is just a sign of DPP losing sleep; otherwise looking at the attacks on him, he should have been arrested by now. Wake up and smell the coffee!
