Federalism talks take centre stage in Malawi

Demands for federal system of government have taken centre stage with the debate growing day by day with Bishop of the Anglican Upper Shire Diocese, Brighton Malasa  suspecting the calls are not being made in good faith.

The Diocesan Bishop said those calling for federalism have no credibility and that they should not be taken seriously as they are the same “greedy and selfish politicians”.

“It could have made sense if they were new and neutral people,” he added.

Malasa:  Federalism campaigners have no credibility

Malasa: Federalism campaigners have no credibility

But a pressure group pushing for federism in Mzimba led by Dr Bina Shawa has trashed the Bishop’s remarks, saying the calls should be handled in accordance with citizens’ demands.

He said citizens be allowed to decide on federalism other than suppressing them.

Shawa said government should accept there is a wind of federalism and “allow public debate so that the people decide the type of system they want instead of dividing people into proponents and opponent.”

He warned that failing to come out and allow public debate will polarize the country and will encourage enmity.

The CCAP Synod of Livingstonia has said the push for federalism should be national.

President Peter Mutharika has been dismissing such calls as unnecessary . The President has since dispatched his aides to lure traditional leaders  in campaigning against federal government in which sovereignty is constitutionally divided between a central governing authority and constituent political units such as states or provinces.

However. Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya,  has called on chiefs to understand “things” before making decisions.

Speaking at the annual cultural event for Tumbuka ethnic group in Rumphi,t Gonapamuhanya, Msowoya made reference to a biblical story where the Jews chose Barnabas in place of Jesus to be freed from crucifixion.

He said: “When people don’t understand things they tend to make wrong decisions. Even the Jews in the Bible chose Barnabas instead of Jesus.”

“But if they had known that Jesus is the truth and life, they would not have made that decision. Understand first. Do research. If you don’t understand, ask, even if it means asking your children.”

In Europe, most countries run federal system of government  while in Africa, federal system of government is practised in some countries including South Africa and Nigeria.

    i am not a politician hence not selfish as purpoted by the honourable Bishop. but i believe in the call for federalism because of one good reason = PROPORTIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF DEVELOPMENT.

  3. MCHEWA WAPAPHATA says:

    Most of us here are saying the tumbukas are useless then why dont we let them leave on there own. malawianswill never be grateful they have beeen coming too our regions and helped build our beautiful cities and towns but we have really shunned their region when they cry out aloud they are useless aaaaah my foot. come to think of this: new stadium Lilongwe, new cancer hospital-Blantyre or Lilongwe, new university- Ndata new what what lilongwe and blantyre as for mzuni you just evict TTC and University occupies alas they have the reasons to seek federalism worse still secession. ndinu anthu abwanji amalawi even the fisrt proponents for indepenence and democracy were these fearless people from nyikaland whom you call names as you so wish

  4. Kamwanakamchitete says:

    Mr Malasa, What i can advise you is that if you feel a moving air (wind) just know that there are two points of unequal pressure. Visit both points b4 u jump into nasty and ashaming conclusion. Just keep your bribes intact and hidden while already ex[posed to God

  5. Ngoma, Thomas, London says:

    The Cat is out of the bag. Federalism will indeed happen. However, amidst all the huha we as a nation must ask ourselves; is it really the priority at this stage? Will federalism really develop Malawi? This is just another social-political jingoism mirage that will come to pass but economic development will continue to elude this nation. We broke ‘the stupid federation’ but failed to create wealth, we became independent but failed to create wealth, we defeated dictatorship to bring about skewed multiparty democracy but failed to create wealth for this country. We make very good progress on the social political scale axis but zero progress on the economic axis. what every Malawian woman, man and child yearns for is economic wellbeing not all this social political blablabla that leads them to nowhere. There is a secret formula for economic development that can benefit all our people as one but is too difficult for our politicians to grasp. Instead they go for these soft targets…..any kindergarten child can conjure up! We need LOVE in Malawi!

  6. Kabwiro says:

    These northerners are selfish. First it was issue of quota system they went around the globe telling donors to stop assisting Malawi. The quota system is no longer there now they have started again on the issue of federal system of government. If we say no they will start all over again telling the donors not to assist Malawi. But all in all Malawians will suffer. We will not look up to the politicians to help us. Kudzikonda bwanji?

  7. mcp says:

    Hey! we never cling to northenors to be part of Malawi. I tell u Malawi wl be better off without mtundu umenewu. As for federalism its all about politics by those who know Malawians wl never give them chance to become presidents. Its a way t create small governments which they can get chance to rule. With federalism the game z; there wl be 4 governments, easy fr ppliticians to share. One central government in lilongwe, and 3 regional govermments one in south one in center and another in north. At all cost, gues about administrative costs. However fr ppliticians the best reason z that there wl be more positions to share. Serving pipo! Mmmh i doubt.

    Chayambisa federal system ndi chiyani? nkhani ya cashget yatha sopano ndi federal government. Advisers of APM tengani bwino khaniyi chifukwa wina azakomoka nayo (we don’t want cardiac arrest or Ebola)

  9. Barton says:

    As a democratic state, let us allow this debate to take place but not in one region but the whole nation. Notheren region is not Malawi on its own and can not decide for all of us. We should all participate in this dicussion to make Malawi a federal state.

    Life is a choice and we have to agree to have Northeren State, Central State and Southeren State. Therefore, no one region can dectate the others.

  10. I have red and followed with kin interest on all the issues you honourable people have raised on the issue of Malawi going federal but one thing that leaves alot to be desired is instead of you saying the evil of federalism you are busy talking tumbuka this tumbuka that. If they are uselesss people why do you insist on them holding onto you? You have no aorta to be commenting on what does not belong to you. Just give Caesar what belongs to him. May be you do not know the Northern region and Central region are the Engine for Malawi economy. Mfiti siilumpha manda, this Malasa is deluded. Most of these people saying federal system have been caught with pants down with the calls on the same. His church is one such example operating on federal system but with no restrictions to its members. Some how born early before confined dates.

  14. GRM says:

    Do we have any lesson from the Scotland referendum on independence? Scotish on 18th September 2014 voted no to Independence but still Salmond the first minister though accepting defeat and resigning thinks the issue is not over. He is still hyping up and campaigning for independence even thinking of just declaring independence. Sinkhondo iyi?This federalism debate on national referendum is a waste of time. Do you think achewa kapena atumbuka angawine chisankho Mmanalawi muno?

    1. MLOMWE says:

      KUBERA AND BRIBING TOO MUCH

  15. GRM says:

    Federal government has brought no development in South Africa or Nigeria. Zuma can still construct a massion with government money and Goodluck Jonathan can still left boko haram to tear northern Nigeria.

    I am from the south and i support Federalism with it aliyense akagwire kwao ntchito. Atumbuka ali pankampani pathupa from the chief executive to mlonda akalondele kwao. Mwina nkupeza ntchito ife.

  17. Fred says:

    The best way forward is for malawi to have a federal government as this will decrease the risk of post election violence.
    Each region will be able to develop and hve a leader who dey like,this wil give a chance to people in each region to be part of the national government unlike what we say today were 90% of de pple in government are from de south.
    A federal government does not mean de country will be divided malawi will still be a unity country.
    The only difference is that each region will hve a head who is responsible in the decision making of the region bt will share de sme president jst like the U.S

  18. Zebron h banda says:

    The foolish leaderships, that include kamuzu himself down the line ,instigated this call for secession or federalism..we can’t take these nonsense anymore.you tell us what we should and shouldn’t do.talk of a confused little bishop-possibly an adherant of satanism.

  19. Weniweni Balakasa says:

    Dont call bishop Malasa a man of God. He is a satanic hence he should stop commenting these hot issues.

  20. bristone mabichi says:

    In order to make sure that Jews were perpetual slaves in Egypt Pharaoh ordered the slaughter of all male children.
    The current education system is there to make sure that the north is completely suffocated in education. This is a deliberate move started by the late president, who said sunshine or rain, he was not going to change his stance of quota system. We need a federal system now not tomorrow. We cam start all over again for the betterment of our children, for us it is over but working for our grands. It will be really selfish for any northerner not to accept a federal system. It is enough, I do not want my grands to move through the same vicious cycle. CHANGE IN MY LIFE TIME, …

  21. Black Market says:

    It could help not to devalue your status, if you chose to be quiet on this issue Malasa. It shows you are ignorant on this issue.

  22. Malawi says:

    The Anglican Church has one of the best Federal management system where some sections of the Church have allowed gay pastors to minister while others have said no. Some have accepted women pastors while others have chosen to maintain the old ‘no woman’ status. But Anglicans remain one in faith. Anglicans in Malawi should rebuke and discipline this DPP bishop.

  23. John Thomas says:

    Before the current federalism debate, I commented on Nyasatimes that the proper system of government in Malawi is Federal. There are many advantages and of course some disadvantages of this system.
    My appeal to my country folk is that we use this forum to debate the pros and cons rather than name calling. It is a fact that the incumbents favour developmental projects in their constituencies because this is where their votes come from. Because of narrow minded tribal patterns of voting, this rend will never change in our life time.
    I have an alternative to federalism: Change the voting system where a leader should get at least 50% of the votes. Alternatively, the presidency should be a trio, one from the South, the others from the center and north respectively. Decisions by the trio should be made through mandatory votes.

  24. Mataka says:

    Let bishop Malasa not comment on the issues affecting the Northerners because he does not know what the people of the north are subjected to. He should first come to the north and consult the people from the region before terming the politicians greedy politicians, he did not come to the north to consult the people. had he done so he could have known what is in the minds of the northerners.Fancy the whole Nkhata bay S Sch. nobody from NB does it mean student from NB are not intelligent enough? Our bishop respect yourself before commenting on these earthly issues. I and some ordinaly northerners want Federalism but not independence.

  25. FCK says:

    Lets not take Malasa serious he is from south where all this tribalistic leaders are coming from this man of GOD should practice his religion with love otherwise he is lost May the good Lord give him wisdom, federalism debate should be encouraged and as Malawians let take a positive approach to this issue we will find an answer but if we use a hatred approach we will yield nothing am afraid to say if not handled with care it will bring intrigue division in Malawi, I believe we are matured enough as a nation to this issue with sober minds though unfortunately we have people who think they are more superial than the other by putting people of one tribe to every high position dis regarding others i think we have the worst leaders in Peter and Bingu mutharika though we had this during Muluzi at least for Muluzi it was just the beginning, JB never practised it openly at least she preached unity, certainly as the debate goes on we will discover more and that will strengthen the will for federalism hence no one will stop this whether by hook or crook, PETER himself a tribalist can’t stop this and not even fit to coment because he is a bad example same with this Malasa these should keep their mouths shut

  26. chimbwete Kammadzala says:

    Bishop Malasa, pliz sober up man of God. Everybody knows that you serve interests of DPP since the party was incepted. You are failing to manage the diocese coz of this; mediocrity, egocentrism, no confidence in yourself or inferiority complex. You better upgrade your education to think much more reasonable. Over a diploma… Federalism is not bad at all, it is the way to go. Osamangopondeleza atumbuka. May the Lord be with Malawi and her citizens.

  27. peter says:

    It is the leadership that has persistently divided the country and people are responding to that. If we could have excellent leadership no person would be talking of these federalism! Bring in a loving and transformative leader into position and nobody will complain but now we have a very divisive leadership an,d sad to say, the nation will be divided(whether federalism happens or not but people will look at things with nepotistic/’regionalistic” lens)

  28. clement says:

    Those calling for anti federalism are doing so in bad faith. Is Vuwa, Kyungu, Themba, Peter, etc, sane? Let people debate soberly without hindrance. You don’t block debate. What are you afraid of? Malawians will decide what is best for them

  29. Mathanyula says:

    You foolish idiot it was written for Jesus to die for our sins so thr was no other way thn accepting Barbas thn Jesus. Dont misread pipo to follow your foolish was remember wer not fools like you we did go to school also and we knw wht Federal Government is your one of th North big mouth fool.

  30. Unity says:

    Peter Mutharika is Barnabas, Vuwa Kaunda is Judas Iscariot, Kyungu & Themba are Caiphus and his cohort. Mzomera Ngwira is Mathew. Lomwes are Gentiles. Chewas are from the Tribe of Judah while the Tumbuka are from the Tribe of Joseph. Hot debate?

  32. EDDY BANDA says:

    FEDERALISM IS THE ONLY WAY THE NORTHERNERS CAN BE EMMANCIPATED FROM SLAVERY. PETER HITLER MUTHARIKA IS A KILLER, THUG, LOOTER, TRIBALIST, AND MANY ISMS THAT HE PRACTICE TO PUT DOWN THE NORTHERNERS. HE IS PLANNING GENOCIDE AGAINST THE NORTHERNERS. LET THE DEMONSTRATION TO DEMAND FEDERALISM OR COMPLETELY SEPARATE FROM MALAWI GO AHEAD. IF HE SPILLS BLOOD OF OUR PEOPLE THAT WILL BE DECLARATION OF WAR AGAINST NYIKA PEOPLE. WE WILL FIGHT UNTIL NYIKA PEOPLE ARE FREE. DOWN WITH SELLOUTS AND FORWARD WITH NYIKA PEOPLE STRUGGLE TO FREE OURSELVES FROM THE BONDAGE OF SLAVERY. ALLUTA CONTINUAAAAA!

  33. Brian Bande,BBA(Accounting) UEAB says:

    This pressure is from Joice Banda and her party mates.what these northers should know is that government of malawi gets alot of taxes from south & central.kamulepo kalua has been close to JB when she suddenly ruled this nation.if pp wants to reclaim the gvt,they shd wait till 2019,if they can manage to beat DDP.APM akudzaimansotu.He will scoup all the votes in north.You, cant u appreciate gvt wants to build Mombera varsity in Mzimba?

    1. mboma says:

      idiot, MUST is in thyolo but those studying there all are from centeral and north those from thyolo are still plucking tea, building mombela university doesnt mean it is a northern varsity, its a natinal varsity, and who said tax come from south and cneter??? which economics is that?????

  34. Mbolo Sidwala says:

    The Bishop is a lunatic, go to hell! What credibility are talking about? Can you give us your credibility if its kuchitana ndi amuna okha okha! At least that’s what anglican bishops are known for all over the world, supporting gays and lesbians! Rt Hon. Speaker, that’s talking. Let the chiefs ask, even if it means asking their “children,”- amvenso maganizo a anthu awo.

  35. Uziwa-Uziwa says:

    Federal system will not assist you stupid from north . Let me assist you though you call urself big brains. Pliz pliz pliz you stupid pple choose SELF INDEPENDNCE. That way ur first president will be Kamlepo kalua and vise president to be Mzomera Ngwira. I bet that it will not even two year before start fighting bcoz all of u you are foolish pple

  36. johnM says:

    Malasa should concentrate in speaking the word of God and not get embroiled in politics.

  37. kenneth mashaba says:

    a malasa mwadya chi sikono, ndani sakudziwani inu ku nkhani ya zolandiralandira!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  38. nikisi says:

    Bishop Malasa is administering a diocese which runs on a federal structure among several dioceses decentralized from the large ANGLICAN church headquarters in Westminister,London. Likewise,there is nothing wrong for Malawi to decentralize its powers from the the capital,Lilongwe to autonomous regions such as North,Central,East and South provinces.
    Malasa needs to grasp what federalism is all about,it is not dividing the people but decentralization or devolution of powers from central authority to autonomous provinces. The examples are many,ie USA, UK,Nigeria,and South Africa just to name a few. Uk recently about 20 years ago devolved its central powers from London to Wales,Scotland and Northern Ireland provinces. Can malawi not do the same?

  39. Joe wa Kalunji says:

    Yes, Mr Speaker, you are quite right that our chiefs should make decisions from an informed position even if means asking their children. But have those who are purported to have the so-called wisdom and knowledge including you Mr Speaker, given such information to our chiefs in the first place ? Furthermore, I do not think the chiefs have made any decisions on the issue regarding federalism or is it secession. The chiefs have simply spoken their minds and not necessarily representing the views of those they exercise their authority on. Here is a clear example of why I make this statement. When the the chiefs in various parts of the country called on their subjects to give the PP regime another lease at plot no. 1, did the people follow that? I think you know the answer. Your assertion may have carried weight it was made during the pre-independence and early years of independence not now.

  40. Matata says:

    Malasa go on i support

  41. More fire guys. We need it. Tribalism is marginalizing other tribes. The Northerners are being taken as lesser people and yet they are the most productive than Lomwes and Yaos. The Chewas run the economy through tobacco and other crops and yet Lomwes and Yaos who do nothing apart from being thieves and domestic workers look at them as lesser people. It’s either indepence or federal system.

    1. Malawianmom says:

      WITH THIS KIND OF MENTALITY NO WONDER NORTH CAN NEVER MAKE IT. ARE WE TALKING ABOUT YAO OR LOMWEZI HERE.

  42. Chitete Zikambani says:

    I think you are in a wrong way can you go back to church and preach the words of god to the christian always a preacher if he goes in politics it seems he is lost may be ( Ntchito itavuta anangolembera ku Sembe asanave maitanidwe ambuye Malasa wusasokoneze anthu amulungu tikamakuwonani timati ndine wodzozedwa ndi ambuye) be careful

  43. Mphalive says:

    A few greedy people indeed. There is no such a thing as demands for fedulo in the North. The stupid fedulo was brockeng long ago by badada Kamuzu!

  44. Amalawi chenjera. Andale alingati satana. Amabwera ngati wabwino akukuganizira zoyipa.even north/centrol and sauth zitagawika palibechizasithe chifukwa anthu ake ndi amodzi.angofuna njira zosithira moyo yawo.kut aziba bwino.

  45. Kadushu says:

    i think the Church should be the last to comment on this subject to avoid dividing its members. for the people of the North who are advocating for this change i would say you are just wasting your time you need to convince the South and the Central to support your idea if anything to go your way but to the look of things it is only the North advocating for this. for us to change to this system of Government we need a referendum which in my view you may not get the needed numbers to change the System. so i would advise that focus should be to the two regions if you want the change.
    Livingstonia Synod please advise your members

  46. Leave this to the public as it happened with referandum and maltparty, avoid passing the ruling, but however Bishop Malasa is not sealing the idea, he is forcusing on greedy and selfish politicians, but to him in the way he has put FEDERALISM is a welcome idea for it will not divide the country and Machinga/Liwonde, Balaka, Mangochi, Nsanje, Phalombe, Neno, Namwera will be developed to the to-days stardards.
    Lets understand this word FEDERALISM AND TAKE IT, AVIOD THAT OF DIVIDING MALAWI TO BE A SEPERATE COUNTRY.

  47. Patrick Manase Phiri says:

    Wayowoya Msowoya. The government needs to conduct a referendum and get the populace views.

  48. Allie says:

    Bishop Malasa has the right to speak and he has support from us from the south and more over he is the Bishop of Anglican church not pentecost church.. if this issue of Federal is really from people of North why now why Hon.Ngwira. Ife aku south sitikupanga nawo zimenezo Malawi will remain 1 not 2 or 3 or 4 no no no . lavuta apa ndi dyera basi mumafuna zabwino zonse zikhale zanu inu

  50. Kanthukanyeka says:

    Dont tell people to go and do what, they also have rights to express their views, so if you aint have anything to say, pliz just read and keep quiet until you have one. Malasa speak as much as you can, so that we can understand before we speak and take action.

  51. mboma says:

    This guy is confused, i thought those who are running this country are the same people who rlooted billions in this country during first and second term of DPP??? why didnt u warn the poeple that dont vote for DPP they are the same people who made us sleep in filling stations???????????????????? chawonekela kuti he is fake a pastor who has scorns in his mouth go to hell devil!!!!!!!!!

  52. mboma says:

    This is a big idiot cheating as a pastor, who are u to dismiss this debate, how much have u been paid idiot????????? infact the people who will go to hell more than secular people are pastors!!!!!!!!

    A Malasa mwadya kale chisikono cha DPP. YOU ARE VERY STUPID.

    First critically analyze why people now are calling for federalism? I suspect rampant nepotism, tribalism and regionalism being orchestrated by Peter Mutharika is core precursor to the federalism calls. You being “you”, may be you don’t feel this rotten and stinking malpractice. As a man of Gof I expected you to be rational rather than being judgementaland taking sides as you have shown. THINK TWICE. Otherwise you are a perfect fool to the core

  58. Wananga says:

    A Bishop, mwadya zingati? Your duty is to pray to God. Is this what God told you?

  59. Tilipo says:

    Let love lead. Allow fedalism. People who cry have a reason. If leadership had wanted one Malawi there would have been fair treatment for people in all regions.

  62. Kadakwiza says:

    Kamuzu Banda divided Malawians. He hated people from the Northern Malawi. He killed all languages and made chichewa as a national language. Bakili also favoured the south than other regions. Came Bingu the same story. Joyce Banda tried to unify the country, but the people from the south hate her for that. Joyce Banda was the only hope for Malawians. Now this man called Peter Muthalika has divided the country completely. Now its time to make it official. Federal type of government is the answer in Malawi. People of the north want companies, and development which they have been denied for the past 50 years.

    1. Bristol says:

      As far as people are looking for development, people should know that companies choose where to and operate their companies. There are many people from the north who have companies in centre and south. If the same people could be encouraged to open companies in the north, I can assure you that development will come up north. People should not just be emotional about feudalism and put should tell people clearly about the benefits of this system compared to the one we are currently using.

      1. Master says:

        companies choose where to operate because they follow where govt established its headquarters, its the duty of govt to create that platform, northerners have big companies in south and center because they expect return on their investments, govt has so far created good business platform in the south and center hence companies and even international organization follow that trend, u dont build or invest where u will make losses my bro,a good example is when bingu was presidnet during his first term he orderd that he will be working from office, and that office was capital hill, do u know happened therefater??????? most companies migrated their services to LL, more development started coming in LL, i can tell u that now LL has outgrown BT, that is what north is saying, when capital city was Zomba, LL was just the sam as Lilongwe but since it was turned into capital city, development has outgrown all cities, and when kamuzu said capital city has moved from zomba to LL, do u see anything tangible u can point now apart from what was built there when it was capital city its govt that dictate that stimulus?????????? chanco, Maneb, parliament building were the best projects which Zomba benefited when it was capital city, northerners want the same stimulus initiated by govt my bro in mzuzu!!!!!!

    2. Mwana wa Mfumu M'vonye says:

      Are you kidding?
      Your beloved Joisi Banda was one of the most divisive presidents ever in Malawi. She ruled with a cabal from the North; with her husband, Kachale and Kasambara at the helm. Everything was for the North. And unfortunately, some Northerners begun to believe that they owned the country, based on their influence on that clueless president.

  63. Alungwana says:

    I dont know if federalism means division or unity. I only know that other countries have the system at work while others have a system like ours and it works too. I also understand that during the introduction of multiparty in Malawi, Dr H. Kamuzu Banda our only great and developmental greedy_free president told us that ‘matipate ndi nkhondo’ in defending his autocratic rule.

  64. chunga says:

    Abusa tilekeleni ife zinthuzi. Fed is coming and coming to stay.

  65. Du Mwama. says:

    Malasa, you can cheat your congregants and lead them to Gehenna but not Us. Your doesn’t have any impact on our yes to federalism. We know the sidelines the Northers have experienced. Is better to listen to disgruntled politians than a fallen pastor. NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER SECESSION OR FEDERATION ARE HERE TO STAY.

  66. Habaku says:

    Malasa himself is not neutral.

  67. Bupe says:

    Views expressed by Malasa are not necessarily of the Angiican Church!

  68. Wawa says:

    I work closely with Malasa and I have always known him and can give proof that he is not just a Mutharika blue eyed boy, but that he jumps at every opportunity to make blood money in the disguise of being a Bishop. Paja malemu Bingu ndi amene anamukweza ku mpingo wawowo ndiyetu he fights tooth and nail to promote the Mutharika DPP even when its wrong. Mzake wa choncho ndi Rev. Alexander Maulana yemwe adachita ngozi kumahule ku Mangochi mwezi womweuno.

    It is a high time you should come open you man of a devil and declare yourself that you are half politician or an NGO.

    Some of us we don’t want to hear the name of your church because it is the church which is practicing gay . You are a full time gay , your body appearance just shows tells us that you will never stop blessing gay marriages.

    Your church should just be converted into an NGO in order to promote gay and to discourage fenderisim in Malawi.

    I DONT THINK AT THIS POINT IT WILL BE APPROPRIATE TO LISTEN TO THE VIEWS OF AN INDIVIDUAL. JIM AND JACK BECAUSE SO MANY BRIBES IN DIFFERENT FORMS HAVE BEEN CIRCULATED TO DIFFERENT PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT POSITIONS !! WE NEED TO GO BACK TO THE PEOPLE FROM GRASS ROOT LEVEL TO HEAR THEIR VIEWS ON THE SUBJECT MATTER!!
