There has been fevered speculation that some people are trying hard to divide the two and brewing anarchy in the ruling party to advance their political interests.

Kasaila, who is also Minister of Transport, said those dreaming of presidential fissures were “wasting their time” as the DPP administration remained solid.

“The relationship between President Mutharika and his vice president Chilima is very cordial,” said Kasaila.

“Those who are dreaming of a division are wasting their time,” he added.

Kasaila stressed that “there is no room for division”.

His comments comes after influential Lomwe chief Traditional Authority Ngolongoliwa said during the late Bingu wa Mutharika memorial service that the presidency should guard against gossip mongers from splitting 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.

Chilima umayika me badge ambilimbili pa jekete imodzi bwanji? Mbendera ya Malawi, Badge ya DPP kaya chinacho ndi chani? Be civilized. Unamuona President Mutharika atayika zonsezo? Kuchita kukhala ngati ma mendulo a ku keyala (KAR).

Dpp and the word Denial are twins.So you think we care about your lift?We will have other people who can lead Malawi better than time wasters.Zitayani nthawi kukangana gogo ndi chizukulu chake.

Saulosi’s face looks puffed up like chimwana chomanidwa chibanzi.Look closely how Pitala mbyofo mbyofo Nyapaphi is intimidating this boy in his tinted grass.There is alot to it than the eye can see.

Chilima had lucrative post at airtel than rushing for power at his tender age.He doesn’t know that he is swimming sharks.They will do all sorts of things to frustrate you until they find you some little mistakes.Since Chilima wanted to be bed mates with some old crooks in Malawi,he should learn to stand the heat.Most of the Dpp people do not want Chilima on that post.They would rather have their Lomwe homeboy than Ntcheu Ngoni.Limbanazo mphwanga unaziputa wekha.

Chimani. Game

No smoke without fire.. There is no eye contact between the two and that tells it all
