Dausi slams ‘politics of inertia’ in Chakwera: MCP blasts his ‘morally bankrupt’ arguments

Government spokesperson and Minister of Information, Communications and Technology Nicholas Dausi has torn apart  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Lazarus Chakwera recent statements blaming the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)-led government for the socio-economic woes facing the country.

Dausi: Chakwera is making mere political tantrums

Chakwera has been on record saying the Peter Mutharika leadership lacks a vision to move Malawians out of problems such as drug shortages, lack of maize in Admarc markets and dwindling education standards.

However, government spokesperson s Dausi said the criticism is unfortunate and unfair.

Dausi said there is a lot that government is doing to resolve all the challenges facing Malawians.

“This is politics of inertia by Chakwera, mere political tantrums,” said Dausi.

However, Chakwera reiterated his recent criticism of Mutharika that he has failed Malawians and pointed at increased corruption within senior ranks of government and State owned enterprises such as Malawi Energy Regulatory Authority (Mera), Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom) and Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) as more worrying.

“The allegations of links between members of Mutharika’s Cabinet and the mismanagement of K236 billion remains uninvestigated and the ministers in question continue to spend our taxes,” said Chakwera.

But Dausi said Chakwera, as leader of Opposition, should appreciate various initiatives government has employed to tackle corruption, hunger, water and electricity problems.

He said Chakwera should come forward with evidence on all corruption allegations.

Dausi said the opposition leader still harbours hatred to Mutharika because he lost elections to the president.

“Ask him to bring evidence, he will not because he (Chakwera) is saying this out of hate and anger for losing the election to the president. What he knows is to say the president has failed when the opposite is true,” he said.

In his year end speech, Mutharika told Malawians that 2017 would be a better year if people adhere to the principles of patriotism, integrity and hard work.

Meanwhile, MCP deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka has attacked the “morally bankrupt” arguments by Dausi.

Dausi the ex MCP secret agent who knows MCP from head to tow. How I wished to see Dausi and Chakwera face to face in a debate. The casualty would be MCP stripped apart by Dausi. We would hear new revelations that even Muluzi as former Administrative Secretary of MCP might not have known. We will see the dirty shocking linen of the MCP.


Mr. Pido u are just as foolish as a naked dog. I dont understand up to date how a man with two solid testicles can stand and say dpp is doing well. Chakwera or no Chakwera Peter has failed us big time. We dont need someone from pakistan to tell us this. If you happen to eat something from these thieves and failures just eat it a Muluzi anati akabwelesa katunndu landilani but dont stand high on the mountain and preach any good about these bustards

Chakwera always goofs big time. Ever since he dished God and ventured into this Money making business of politics, he has never spoken anything commendable. One wonders if Chakwera is indeed man of God because his ever cries from the defeat of presidency has made him a savage who make a lot of empty noise. A real Pastor is one full of forgiveness, humble, loving, uniting and one who encourages peace. But from the look of things, this savage will keep on talking rubbish until he is elected President of Malawi. This will never happen to you Chakwera, because you’ve… Read more »

Chakwera did not lose. The vote was rigged big time, That is why they are failing t govern. Fact; Why swear a president immediately after results were announced? Why the rush? Fact; why did you burn the votes in Lilongwe when vote recount was eminent? Fact; How can everybody vote one party in Blantyre, are their no intelligent people who used their brains. Fact; Why did Mbendera cry before announcing the results, was it not because he had betrayed Malawians and as a christian he had been forced to announce wrong things? Fact; why were votes from very nearby centersto… Read more »
