Kabwila christen Mutharika’s SONA a tweet while Musowa dubs ‘speech of points’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila who is also the party’s Salima North West Member of Parliament (MP) irritated the government side in Parliament on Wednesday when she described the 25-minute State of the Nation Address (Sona) by President Peter Mutharika on Friday as a “tweet”.

Kabwila: Mutharika speech was just like a tweet or Whatsapp message

Kabwila: Mutharika speech was just like a tweet or Whatsapp message

A tweet is a post made on the Twitter online message service which has a restriction of 140 characters and nothing more.

In her response to the President’s address, Kabwila called the President’s speech “a shockingly short” like a Whatsapp message and trimmed down to an “empty” tweet that failed to satisfy Malawians.

“What they heard was what can be described as a Twitter message and at worst maybe a WhatsApp message not a State of the Nation Address,” she said.

Leader of the House Francis Kasaila accused Kabwila of making disparaging remarks against a Head of State.

MCP president Lazarus Chakwera who is also leader of opposition also described Mutharika’s SONA as “zero plan” speech.

But Victor Musowa, a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) MP for Mulanje Bale defended the President for delivering what he said was a” speech of points and facts” within the shortest time.

“Mr Speaker, Sir, there is a Chichewa saying that goes like kukhalitsa pamsika sikugulitsa kwambiri. Martin Luther King, Mr Speaker, Sir, once said, a good presentation and indeed a good speech is not measured by its length. Mr Speaker, Sir, you do not need to have the whole Bible of words to convince the people you are speaking to,” said Musowa attracting applause from government benches.

He said a good speech, according to Martin Luther King,   is actually measured by the quality of the content.

“Mr Speaker, Sir, what His Excellency is actually trying to emphasize and I have already emphasized is the ability for someone to rise above party colours, party politics and read the presentation from the President and see where we are today and see where we are going. Mr Speaker, Sir, being in opposition does not mean opposing all what government is proposing,” Musowa said.

He requested parliamentarian across the board to “rise and support the vision” that has been set by President Mutharika in order to developing the nation.

“In turn   our kids can in future come forward and say congratulations to our fathers and grandparents because you did a good job.”

    A MCP sazalowanso m’boma sitidzaiwala za nkhanza zawo ndipo a chakwera apite khosa zawo zikuwadikira anazibera zija sangakhale president kuchokera ku ubusa ayi ndipo makomenti awo siochokera kwa mtsogoleri ayi.

  4. Captain Mediocrity says:

    I wonder if anyone here actually remembers what was stated in the SONAs of old. I sure don’t, and they were long and disjointed. Is it that the longer the speech and the more of it that we don’t understand, the better the speech??

    By the way, this opposition of ours needs to go back to the drawing board. Raising issues as though they are the common folk who simply say “it was bad, it’s crap, waste of time”, are you seriois!!? Leave that to those of us who are outside looking in, this tactic of yours only loses you support. Join the conversation and back up your reasons as to why whatever it is you see as a failure by the govt can be identified as such. Simply telling us that it is like a whatsapp message only tells us APM’s speech was short, and as the case seems to be, no one cares that it was short.

    Go to these institutions of higher education. Clarity, synthesis and structure is what matters in one’s work. Writing pages and pages does not necessarily mean you have done well. Those are silly secondary school beliefs that are also false. Bvuto la school ya pa malawi, ndimeneyi, kuloweza nkupanga upload pa page mu exam zonse zomwe wawelenga (even irrelevant things). Get serious malawians.

    1. The Analyst says:

      Inu ngati simukukumbukira ndi mavuto anu amenewo ndipo ife asatikhudze iai. Maybe you did not pay attention or didn’t even listen to it at all. Koma ife A DPP ndi UDF tikukumbukira each and every word said by the great APM in the SONA.

      For example, he said . . . mmmm ….um…..I mean . . . . eeeeee . …. aaaaa… paja di what did he say? . . . eti nanenso cant remember . . .

      I think nobody remembers indeed!!!! Not even APM himself.

  5. Prophet Bashiri says:

    Koma. DPP is a desperate gang.

  6. Kangaroo says:

    Talking too much does not mean you are making sense. The most important thing is the content in the speech. We have seen people talking the whole day but doing nothing eg mama Joyce, but what did she deliever? I urge u Kabwira and your party to go for quality not quantity

  7. AFANA says:

    Chipani cha abusa. Ngati mukulalata muli kunja kwa boma nanga mukadzatenga bomali, tidzakhala anthu ife?? Mai samalani polankhula. Zipatseni ulemu.

  8. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

    It seems Ms Kabwila-Kapasula is in a game of one-up-man-ship, with oChakwera, as to who will insult APM the most and the worst. Substantial criticisms of APM’s (boma ilo) speech could be done without the belittling.
    This approach, if anything, is putting people off MCP; rather than attracting support. Is MCP really serious about winning in 2019?

  12. nthandalanda says:

    The name Musowa speaks volumes of what you are. What vision did the president put forward to us? People will listen to him but won’t take action because he is a failure in everything.

  13. Ine ndipo ndaona kuti ndinasochela, APM sakutithandiza olo pang’ono akanakhala kuti malemu amunanga a WEBSTER THOM amachita chonchi sibwenzi atamanga chipani.
    Pano ndikunena momasuka kuti Chakwela ali ndi mphanvu zochuluka kuposa Pitala,ndipo Chakwela mosakaikanso atenga boma,kuli konse nkhani ndi ya Chakwela.
    Olo kukakhala zochitika pomwe pali Chakwela ndi APM emwe amakumakhala ndi Chakwela,zamanyazi.
    Getu nayenso m’malo moti azitifunsa ife akuyelekedwa,akutisala kuywala kuti ife tinagwila ntchito yaikulu kumuthandiza APM kukopa anthu koma nzachisoni kuti chipani chalowa pansi.
    Chakwela atenga boma mosavuta.

    foolish president,,,,an idiot.

  15. chatonda says:

    The Mulanje Bale fool is not educated at all hence quoting Martin Luther very wrongly. He has not read the speeches by Martin Luther at all. Unless there is another Martin Luther from Mulanje Bale that we do not know.Idiot. Kabira knows the stuff and we totally agree with her response. Keep it up JK and leave fools aside. Here at Chanco we have all Martin Luther’s speeches but no where can one find what the MJ Bale fool is talking about. Shame.

    1. Zidura Ntengo Undigwere says:

      Nanu a Chatonda, mulibe manyazi kuitama Chanco eti? Chanco ndi chani masiku ano?
      Get real. You are saying Martin Luther, when MP Musowa referred to Martin Luther King. FYI Martin Luther and Martin Luther King are different people. Completely of different historical times.
      You just showed your true understanding based on Chanco education, or lack thereof. Others would say umbuli baasi. Asa!

  20. chingolopiyo Genuine says:

    Oh my God! Can Jessie please improve her image. She doesn’t look like she is an MP or has been a lecture. Munthu uyu amazola mafuta a nsasi kapena. Please people of Salima take her somewhere so that she can improve. She has short hair and she fails even to comb. Musowa, well spoken. The quality of the speech is not measured by the lenghty or pages it should cover, but by the quality substances it contains. Even Chakwera should know that it doesn’t need to preach the whole day for people to be convicted or to be blessed but by the content of it. When speeches are long people loose interest to listen and they even miss what has been said.

  21. King Jaffe Joffer says:

    A State of the Nation address can not be done in 20 mins. What Mutharikha did shows that the man has no clue whatsever what the office he is occupying entails and notoriously lazy . He is employed to dose and snore at State House. He doesn’t get any reports from his ministers nor does he supervise them. He does not sit down to craft plans on how to save this country from total collapse and be a competitor on international stage. Maybe because his body is here while his soul is in America. It appears he prepared that shambolic speech at dawn of the same day it was delivered. All along he was day dreaming thinking about which when to buy a personal jet. This man is a calamity of a president ranked lowest in our history in this order: HK Banda, Bingu, Joyce, Bakili, the Chakuamba triumvirate (when Kamuzu got sick), Peter Mutharikha.

    I don’t think we are serious enough to talk of tweet, whatsapp in the august house. You are wasting tax payers money chonde ndapota nanu.

  38. SONG says:

    Mulanje Bale MP shame to you. If Njauju was your brother could you enjoy such a brutal murder, why the president did not tackle about that. There are many pressing issues that president is sitting on without providing answers to Malawians. This is bullshit. You support him because you are all Lhomwes and useless lhomwes for that matter.

  41. Kwende says:

    Which good job, Musowa? Will they congratulate you for having a one-toothed, visionless old bull for president? Your kids in future will truly laugh at you!! Kusowadi chonena eti as per your name suggests. Peter Mathanyula is the worst president Malawi has ever had. Education does not erase stupidity in a person ndawonera Mathanyula.

  48. maganizo wa maganizo says:

    mayi wosasamba uyu ,amandibowa

  49. levelheaded says:

    At least its a tweet that contains developmental programmes, a framework on how to overcome the current economic crisis and programmes that will elevate the affairs of majority Malawians. From you Kabwira what we hear from your stinking mouth is trash that leaves a lot to be desired.

  50. Pido says:

    Kabwira is a woman who thinks using her tongue. I can best liken her to a night hooker who looses nothing from her speeches. I wonder what kind of people are teaching our children in the university if Kabwira is anything to go by. To me, she is as empty as she sounds. Mwina ndi uhule unangomulowelera galu ameneyu

  51. Kabwira is a nagging woman. She is now running short of senseable contributions in the August House.

  52. Koma uli iwe says:

    A Jesse kabwira is just optimistic …. Thats normal @ strategic level to put it like that….. Kwina tizimasulira how to achieve our goals.. The president is there for us….. Ife tinaziwa kale…

  53. Uyu ndi Kape says:

    They are twitter addicts indeed

  54. The Analyst says:

    Koma Kabwira uyuuuu!!!

    So uncultered is her mouth that you can hardly believe she is a PhD holder.

    So inconsistent is her mind, one wonders she once was a University of Malawi lecturer. Then one quickly relates why the standards of education have gone down.

    So devisive are her words, you can hardly belive she has friends or family.

    So disrespectful and piercing are her sentiments, you wonder how she was raised n brought up.

    So unthoughtful are her remarks, you cant belive she is some party’s spokesperson.
    Then you begin to wonder how she became that party’s spokesperson. But you quickly stop wondering when you realise that every dog has a master.

    So hostile are her sentences, one continues to wonder if she has a husband, then one stops to wonder when one realises that such a mouth cannot tame a husband hence conclude that she has none. Not even a good-for-nothing quarter husband.

    Pa bench ndipopweteka.all you can do to attract attention is making unnecessary noise.sungasiyanitse behavior ya anthu awa ndi mayufi akumapanga ma phokoso pa facebook

  56. Achimidzimidzi says:

    So our MPz are getting allowances for debating the length of president’s opening speech.

  57. Wadyera says:

    Hahahahaha empty tin makes a lot of noise so Kabwira wants the President to be an empty tin. Mind you he is a Professor a learned man better than you Chanco whole who got title because of having sex with your lecturers. No wonder you are HIV positive today.
