Chinsinga receives death threats for being critical to Mutharika govt: Malawi political analyst

University of Malawi’s Chancellor College political scientist Blessings Chinsinga has said he has stopped commenting on political issues in the country after receiving several death threats from regime operatives.

Dr Chinsinga: Living dangerously

Dr Chinsinga: Living dangerously

Chinsinga said there is a hit-squad that is plotting to assassinate him for being critical to the Peter Mutharika government.

According to Chinsinga, he started to live dangerously after the just ended high-level conference of civil rights and religious leaders and academics, who met in Blantyre under the aegis of the quasi-religion Public Affairs Committee (PAC).

“They are threatening to kill me,” said Chinsinga. “I think some people were not happy with my contributions to my last PAC meeting.”

During the PAC conference, Chinsinga suggested that the country is in deep political, economic and social problems because of “accidental presidents” that have ruled Malawi since the dawn of multiparty politics in 1994.

But the political professor said be believes there is beyond what he said to receive death threats.

During the PAC conference, Chinsinga argued that for the past 20 years Malawi has been governed by “try and error” leaders.

He said the country need political parties which have concrete fundamental political base project where all people will seat together on how could be done to transform this country instead of having leaders who come from a group of people “opportunistically”.

Government spokesperson said Chinsinga invites trouble for himself for always blaming the Mutharika administration.

“The problem with Chinsinga is that nothing good of the DPP government comes from his mouth,” said Mhango.

The government spokesman described Chinsinga’s claims of death threats as “pack of lies.”

He said: “Chinsinga just want to buy cheap public sympathy.”

But DPP has a history of abductions and killings.

    I dont agree with the way the DPP is running government buy I think kunyoza kwinaku ndikoyenjeza based on personal hatred!

    What good has ever come from DPP? APM and his entourage are a typical of a clueless bunch of opportunists hand-picked by corrupt failed lawyers into govt. They think they’re in heaven but living in hell. Only time will tell.

    This is absolutely and extremely true. These leaders that we are having under multi party system of government, the worst in Malawi is getting worse . It’s pity Africans continue voting for such greedy leaders whom in one way or the other have no calling for such a position.

    I feel shame to those who cast their votes into the rivers of dearth, poverty and injustice.

    look at Zimbabwe from a country of honey and milk to the tears of shame with only a hope to God that one day God will bring a miracle of manner and revival for Zim to test the old white regime.

    honest speaking Malawi will never get back to Kamuzu regime even if MCP get back to power as long as we still don’t have the chosen one for the job.
    As per heaven perspective, God has to appoint the leader who ll lead the nation and the people, who ll not just look into his pocket and support his family.

    We are tired of these people who do not have such love for the nation.

    may the living God bring them to justice and punish them .

    Kasiya Wa Kasiya. ….

    This Muthalika Must fall, even donors they cannot help Malawi because of this greedy evil president, this APM is destroying Malawi!!.

  13. Agness says:

    A Chinsinga dont cheat Malawians. You are one of the dull people and have contributed literally nothing to this country. To be honest with you zanu ndikungowrenga zomwe ena analemba mkumatisokosa ngati mukudziwa chomwe tikukamba. Can you tell Malawians kuti chimene mwachitapo apart from commenting things on media ndi chani? Please stop commenting and why chaeting that you are recieving death threat. Honestly mwazindikira kuti a Malawi atopa ndi zopanda nzeru zomwe umanena. Please rest and do something different

  14. Omex70 says:

    You #26, “gurugunya wa gurugunya”or what ever you call yourself, you are one of the most stupid DPP die-hards. Even your nick name shows how corrupted mind you are. You want people to be silent when you and your fellow DPP leaders are destroying our country?

  15. Mlauzi says:

    Gulugunya wa gulugunya has just confirmed that he is a son of a prostitute. His reasoning is really that of a prostitute’s son. YOUR reasoning is poor but understandable coming from mwana wa hule. Why do some people expose their ignorance like this? Chonchobe pepa Gulugunya poti umbuliwo sikufuna analakwa ndi mayi akowo ku BAR. SORRY

  16. and a whole stupid cabinet minister comes out in the open and says that ‘chinsinga invites trouble with what he says about government’, really??? why did we vote for multiparty government in 1994??? a party of thugs indeed. #MATHANYULAMUSTFALL

  17. ufulu says:

    Munadzisankhira nokha boko goliath. These guys are typical terrorists. I will tell you that the worst is yet to come with DPP. We should expect disappearances, torcher and so many atrocities. I will repeat what I said sometime back that Malawians made a mistake to vote DPP to power.

  18. wa k¥ north says:

    Death Plot Plan. Thats it….o yes, thats it. kkkkkkkkkkk.

  19. busiso says:

    I think that is good idea chifukwa zomwe mumakambapo pa za ndale sizothandiza ku mtundu wa amalawi.Timayembekeza kuti muzichita kafukufuku wa momwe aMalawi tingachokere mu umphawi. koma zodabwisa kumangokamba za ndale ndiye mkumati you are contributing some to Malawi shame.

  20. Nyoni Zilipo says:

    I sense danger. If the whole mouth of such an intelligent, strong and fearless Political Guru can shut down, if DPP Pangas can slash heads of guards before a man GOD, Lazarus, if ACB senior Officials get slain like Dogs by DPP, who is to liberate Malawians from oppression?. I know Chinsinga as a strong leader who at one time turned tables and chairs upside at Cross Road Hotel when he was demonstrating how useless FISP is to Malawi.

  21. Patrick says:

    I think that’s really true, our country is still struggling because of our try and error Leaders. I agree with you Dr Chinsinga, That’s why Malawians we are still struggling and the poor still getting poor and the richer still getting rich.

  22. Ambuje Apali says:

    Thats the beginning of Dpp fall

  23. wa k¥ north says:

    The problem is that we leave the battle to the same old ppo. How many times have Human Rights campainers called for protests against government’s underperformances? and how manay times have ‘I’ gone to the streets in support of the idea? Lets feel sorry for ourselves watch the backsliding of once “Warm Heart of Africa”¤ But the fact remain the C Chihanas, H Banda, J Chilembwe and many other fallen heros/heroines will not come back to us. Thanks to GOD for keeping the Kamlepu, Bakili, Gwanda and others who hav been in battle fields for their beloved Malawi, carry the massage to your friend about the coward generation left behind.

  24. NILIBE PULOBULEMU says:

    More fire Chinsinga, sangakuphe , tokota anthu amve, iwe ULIBE PULOBULEMU, ali ndi chilonda ndi amene akumva kuwawa.

  25. James mvula says:

    blessings amagwira ntchito yabwino..kungot DPP simafuna anthu anzeru.

    Amalawi dziko lathu zikutivuta kwambiri udani onsewu ndichifukwa cha atsogoleri olephera omwe akulamulira komanso adyera omwe azungulira akulamulawo. Zowona mungamasangalere kumuuza mzanu kuti iweyo uphedwa

  27. gurugunya wa gurugunya says:

    Yes you have to die.Get ready for it. Why Chinsinga should be rudishing each and every bleed of DPP? You did it during Bingu, you remember the results of fire you ignited that led to academic freedom and the infamous 20 July deaths. It was you. You saidthat Malawi should go revolution because it started that likke that in King Pharoah’s land. Look at what leadership type you have brought in Malawi, accidental leader. Even if it was your father who fathered you while your mother was crooking with other men and you tell your father that he is an accidental father, what would happen. You dont correct a wrong vs a wrong. You are stupid. Your plot for death has expired. You would have dead with the 20 July victims. By now DPP would be working without your rotten lips. I can imagine that DPP would be a happy political party in Malawi.

  28. Kenkkk says:

    Jappie, you are real stupid dpp govt bootlickers. Speaking the truth is not bringing himself trouble. It just confirms that this dpp govt considers chinsinga as a trouble maker, hence should be eliminated. It is true that Peter is an accidental president ruling the country by trial and error. What is wrong with that?

    You jappie and your stupid govt gurus should be condemning those threatening to kill a person rather say chinsinga is a trouble maker. What troubles is he making?

  29. mg says:

    dpp are killers, see their history but one day things will change

  30. Marc Gave says:

    we are very much away from real politics , Malawi is not yet a democratic state

  31. KK says:

    We need to find another pastime. The political one has outlived its usefulness.

    Always “DPP ikufuna kundipha x2” and you are still there year after year.

    Find something else to feed your feeble minded followers.

  32. Onceavictim says:

    Inu a Chinsinga your academic role is agaist DPP. Remember the Mukhito Academic Freedom saga. Remain silent or quit Malawi.

  33. Nyolinyoli says:

    Frustrating those in authority won’t take us anywhere as a nation. Criticism yes, but it has to be constructive and NOT destructive. Ngati munthu sakhumudwa pa mau ,munthuyo ali wangwiro, so it applies to every human being with blood and fresh, says the Holy Bible in the book of James. Tizilankhulana mwachikondi pomanga dziko lathu osati kuyankhula mokhadzula ai sizithandiza Amalawi zimenezo.

  34. Nonpartisan says:

    I suggest the only materialistic way to silence the noble professor chinsinga the DPP led government could do is to prove him wrong through implementation of whatever you had in your manifesto other than heartlessly intimidating this genius. Think twice for him to be who he is his family suffered a lot in supporting him so don’t be just full of malice like that. You want him to say something good about your party yet in view of many Malawians including chinsinga there is nothing to ululate! Mind you we don’t demand nor do we request praises from others, we rather do what freely calls for praises, that’s what we call a healthy democracy. Don’t turn Malawi into a mafia state…………you are indeed a very accidental, clueless and inept leader that Malawi has had since creation.

  35. Taweni says:

    Mr Chinsinga believe and pray to God that his grace should set you free where not even thugs, villains and those maquarading as wolves in sheep skin should be exposed. If you read properly from Philip Short’s novel of Banda you will notice that this country has failed the test of democracy. Over 100 university lecturers were detained and sent into exile by the same guys fighting you now. Attati Mpakati , Mkwapatira Mhango, Frackson Zgambo , Chakufwa Chihana, Matthew Ndovi and many others , suffered and /or perished through the same hands. I hope the Lord will protect you as you struggle to fight for a just Malawi.

  36. ellias says:

    Am i wrong to say we are still in one party state? These threats are the same we experienced during kamuzu era.

    Lord have mercy

  37. ineyo says:

    And foul mouthed Jappie Mhango says Chinsinga invites all these problems for himself because he says nothing good about DPP. on the other hand Jappie says all that Chinsinga is saying is is a pack of lies! Kodi galu ya munthu yotchedwa Mhango Jappie akutinji?

    Kill us all but you won’t kill justice. Opportunistic politicians are what we have in Malawi including you Jappie, Dausi and Kasaila

  38. Nachika says:

    DPP Zikwanje Government! I totally agree with you Greencardless Malawian, you have said it all. From the look of things, all Malawians are on their knees praying. I cry for my country Malawi with its leaders who are greedy, corrupt, murderers, thieves, selfish, liars, haters looters of Government money.

  39. Kadewele zandiwombole says:

    Don’t worry chisinga the true shall prevail God is in Control.if you get assassinated we will follow up.nawonso azafa

  40. peter says:

    The government spokesperson did not help matters by pointing fingers at Chinsinga instead of assuring security! What a shame!

  41. Omex70 says:

    I pray to Almighty God to save this country from the hands of this notorious party called DPP. This party wants everyone including God to fear and respect its clueless leaders. Sooner or latter God will do something to remove these thugs from the face of the earth.

  42. Dziwapo says:

    Chinsinga analysis yake imachita kuonetsa kuti he is for MCP. Palibe chimene anayamikirapo government. Hussein amachita kuonetsa kuti he is for UDF. I like Chunga, Dulani and Thindwa anthuwa alibe mbali yawo yeniyeni these are true analyst osati Chinsinga

  43. Nyaphaphi says:

    A DPP chonde omwe munapha aja akwana, Chasowa, the July 20 victims, Issah Njaunju and without forgetting those we do not know. Koma Chinsinga yekhayu mupeza naye mavuto ndipo muvutikadi. This Jappie Muhango is a total idiot. Is it a crime for someone to comment on what is going on in his country??? After all he’s more educated than most dpp thugs who call themselves ministers and the like. Please stop this madness, people chose multiparty in 1993 because they wanted to be free. When we were voting for multiparty in 1993 your so called Mr Ibu was in America and do not know what people went through, and perhaps that’s why he’s failling to govern this country.

  44. Njati says:

    Dont kill this nice professor please

  45. therere says:

    at first i was respecting Chinsinga but now after academic freedom he is biased in his reporting, he doesn’t see anything good from the government always critical instead of giving solutions

  46. Flamingo says:

    zinazi a Malawi tidzinena zoona a malawi, we are very good at kuyipitsa dzina la munthu wina. Remember Kabwila, he was up in arms against Mutharika and it turned out it was because of her affiliation to MCP not really for the good of Malawians. Dont be fooled with these antics!

  47. Nadothi Gagula says:

    Mr Chinsinga trust your God, believe in you God, your security is in the hands of God. God knows everything because Malawians are now tired with these threats.

  48. Greencardless Malawian says:

    WHY IS THIS DPP GVT ALWAYS QUICK TO KILL? LORD ON THIS MATTER I CLAIM YOUR WORD THAT THOSE WHO LIVE BY THE SWORD SHALL DIE BY THE SWORD. I ASK OF YOU MY LORD TO REMOVE FROM OUR NATION ALL KILLERS, AND WITH THE CORRUPT, PLEASE DEAL WITH THEM LIKE YOU DID WITH ANNANIAS AND SAPHIRA SO THE NATION OF MALAWI CAN PROSPER AND ALL GLORY GOES TO YOU. NOTHING IS TOO DIFFICULT FOR YOU MY GOD, YOU ARE ABLE TO DO EXCEEDINGLY ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL THIS THAT I HAVE ASKED OF YOU. PLEASE REMOVE THIS CORRUPT GOVERNMENT AND BRING IN PEOPLE THAT WORSHIP YOU IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH. THOSE THAT WILL SERVE YOUR PEOPLE HONESTLY AND EARNESTLY. BLESS MALAWI ABUNDANTLY MY GOD, CREATOR OF ALL THINGS, THE ONLY ONE WORTHY OF HUMAN TOTAL WORSHIP!

      Amen!

  49. Umziya says:

    Your best security is God. Worry not after all atsogole ndi iwowo pompano uwawona

  50. wakumwela says:

    This govt is very bad though am from the south , all these tricks are masterminded by dausi. but mind you God is watching you , one day you will regret and it will be very painful . God is not their uncle. chilungamo chikuwavuta a DPP. Chinsinga was actually referring to all political leaders starting from Bakili who really spoiled this country Mbuli yeniyeni and now akulimbikitsa Mwana wake kuti akakamile ku DPP. ALL THIS MESS is from UDF Party

  51. Nyamwaka says:

    The only way to deal with these threats is have your own security. These guys are murderers. That is why even political parties should meet these thugs with force. Don’t trust the police. Thugs who bombed Rafik Hagat’s office, Sembereka etc are still walking free.
