Kaliati says time to stop finger-pointing: ‘Mutharika not to blame for Malawi woes’

Gender minister Patricia Kaliati has told Malawians to stop heaping all blame on the country’s problems to President Peter Mutharika, saying the economic turmoil  the country is facing is an accumulation of factors over the past years since independence.

Kaliati: Mutharika not to blame for Malawi problems

Kaliati: Mutharika not to blame for Malawi problems

Kaliati said this at a news conference Monday in Lilongwe on an unrelated matter.

She said the problem has been there for a long time, saying Malawians were accustomed to handout culture which she said the Democratic Progressive Party  (DPP) government has stopped leaving some people bitter.

“We keep pointing fingers at one person years for 31 years, the government was begging from poor Malawians but now it is one person doing everything,” she said, in direct reference to the one party Malawi Congress Party (MCP) rule, a system that allowed the party to force people donate to the head of state Kamuzu Banda who ruled Malawi with an iron fist for over 30 years before the dawn of multi-partyism.

Kaliati therefore asked the government critics to leave Mutharika alone, saying Malawians should not expect their president to change things just at a pressing of a button when these problems have accumulated for a period of years.

However, civil rights activist George Jobe said the government cannot distance itself from problems even if they emanated from previous governments because, he said, government is a continuity of business.

“The government cannot distance itself from the responsibility, it cannot disown challenges that emanated from elsewhere,” said Jobe who is now the executive director of Malawi Health Equity Network, replacing Martha Kwataine.

Kwataine has secured a job with Plan Malawi, an international NGO.

Malawi is beset with severe economic problems compounded with severe food shortages and the situation seems to be getting out of hand by day as local currency the kwacha keeps sliding fast against the dollar, inflation and interest rates are the highest in recent memory forcing the cost of living up.

    She is a very heartless and silly old cow!!!

  3. crazy stuff says:

    All malawians are stupid except for the ghost, kaliati. A Dpp whore

  4. Saiziyakana says:

    All this is because of the little thinking capacity of Peter Munthalika and the stupid group surrounding him. What Kaliate has said is the thinking of Peter Munthalika and his cabinet. Akuti iwo boma akuyendetsa bwino koma kungoti zinthu sizikuyenda.

    An economy can not tick with nepotism i i have always said this because if you have people put in place based on tribal lines – you get the loud mouths that can not do anything and they expect to keep their job regardless of performance. There is no systems thinking – with DPP – they just lust for power and think everything will be in place.

    People advised against sale of MSB – Peter sold it for reasons we all know – to protect the big DPP gurus with loans.

    As one tribe based on propaganda – muzingonamizana – APM is not a presidential material no matter what you think. Does the education saga come to mind. A failure is a failure full stop. don not delude yourself madam Kaliati – the legendary fool.

  8. mwene says:

    Kaliati, your reasoning is too shallow!!! please direct your speech to other people not intelligent Malawians. Every organization from your family set up has a head who leads. Fingers point at the President because he is head of Malawi and supposed to lead. If the seat has become too Hot for him let him come into the open that he has failed to lead!!! Period!!!
    CLUELESS.

    Madam, should we point finger at mad man on the street? We point at the decision maker for doing absolutely nothing or for making decision that worsen the situation. Problem will come. but a leader must make decision to solve that, otherwise we wiil point fingers.

  11. Ngalamayi says:

    Kaliati should rename herself Squealer, as in Orwell’s novel, ‘Animal Farm’, banned by the Kamuzu during his reign of power: she talks rubbish and expects us to believe it… propaganda! When the people elect a president and his party, they expect them to find solutions even to problems already in existence. And there is more work to do than shaking the hands of (potential) donors or stating that the country’s future lies in the hands of God! DPP should be finding the solutions, not just getting fat on our taxes! Are there any slim members of parliament? I never see them in NT’s pictures!

  12. kau kau says:

  13. Nabetha says:

    I do not understand this kind of thinking. Kaliati is mentally bankrupt that’s why he is saying this.This Peter Muthalika campaigned for the Presidency on the understanding that he wants to improve our economy. He has proved to be very useless. Stop blaming others and act now otherwise just resign . Do not tell us this shit. Stupid woman.

    The way things are, it is you the cabinet and the president. If not you, who else would be?
    I would have expected the following:
    On maize, every resource could have been disposed. Emergency budget to buy maize and emergency set ups at ADMARC depots manned by temporary employees and guarded by the Army, police etc would make this much better. Deliver directly from source to ADMARC. So you mean you have no power to do this???????

    On depreciation of the Kwacha,
    Assemble the economic think tanks from all sectors of the economy for just a week in a big hall. Let them bring their proposals; discuss, interrogate the Reserve Bank Governer and Minister of Finance, find a solution and monitor tightlly. If it doesn’t work due to human resistance, then fireeee!!! Get the willing people to work . Is this difficult to do by you who have power to do so?
    Don’t test our integrity. You can do something to resolve this. It’s time for APM to bang his desks to his ministers and advisors and work just like a Military Commander.

  22. Mngoni says:

    Haha haha. …….but as a leader we expect him to work out all these problems……do you mean we should sit and watch…..Madam a kaliati. ….
    We have entrusted all of you with power to lead us…ngati zakukanika basi just resign ena alowemo with this age I believe it’s purely nonsense for cabinet ministers like you to threaten and and pretend all is well…..malawi is not ticking and it’s all because of leadership. …Our leadership does not know how to solve problems but busy making pry promises….ngati za kuvutani enafe tilipo tikhoza kukuthandizani even with free consultation dziko ndi latha and we are not happy to see it retrograde in and backsliding while our counterparts are progressing!

    Think about it Honourable….We will not stop until you do the job that we put you all i that office for. Just to remind you….We need food…boost agriculture please, boost the economy, create employment opportunities, create conducive environment for business people…..Both small and large, we need infrastructure development and of course corruption to be dealt with.
    I rest my case…..

  28. Winston Msowoya says:

    In the first place you have to have manners,you are not dealing with your late corrupt and arrogant tyrant.In fact he is the genesis of all the bad things we are going through today.People are pointing fingers to your brothers in law because he is the Head of State,he has to feel the heat from the voters who are disenchanted with his egregious leadership.Do not think that the present Malawians are zombies of the 1970s.If they do not point fingers at him,who else must they?Given the present political and economic disaster,he is the one to blame for peoples’unprecedented sufferings.You just shut up and enjoy the remaining loots from MK557billion.People are desperately in need of food not your brightened ambi face.You don’t even have respects for your voters,anyway,very rarely prostitutes have decorum.What goes around comes around and if you are bright enough,you know what it means.

  29. Bololo says:

    No one forced you to campaign to run this country.
    You made so many promises during that time and even prepared a manifesto, all the while proclaiming that your party was the solution to all our woes.
    To come back now and blame others for your failure to implement your so called manifesto smacks of the hypocrisy and dishonesty our stupid politicians are synonymous with.
    Shut up or put up.
    If you can’t stand the heat get out if the kitchen.
    Sounds like admission of failure right there.

  32. Bibo says:

    This is real arrogance being vomited by uneducated minister who doesn’t deserve to be in cabinet.Cabinet needs Technocrats not fake politicians who rant,bark,and hallucinate.

    The economic woes prevailing in the country are not a result of Dr Banda’s weird economic policies,NO. They are a result of kitchen policies of all our democratic leaders from Bakili to Peter Mutharika.As for the Mutharikas,they all have a common demonic problem of Lomwenizing government.Therefore,Kaliati’s seemingly pre-emptive defensive comments stem from this paradox of Lomweism and over confidence to govern better while outside government.She is protecting a tribal pride and not a universal pride

    Before they came into power,they blew different trumpets from different fronts propagating a message of emancipation from poverty, lack of security, and social development, while putting JB to ridicule .The fact is at this same time when JB was ruling, she scored a satisfactory score despite her government bleeding from similar problems as Peter Mutharika ‘s.

    What Kaliati is talking is pure rubbish and exposes lack of leadership in DPP. From day one you take over government, you are responsible for all problems as the father of the nation,no excuses. After all, Malawian s were promised a rosy situation under the second coming of DPP. The problem is Kaliati and company cannot take the blame because they don’t feel the problems and are inhumane.They don’t. deserve another term because they are pretenders in government.

  33. peter must fall says:

    Yes Akweni its not time to point finger @ presint but to take action to impeach him. We dont need excuse here. if we take long to chase him, like his brother BAGS of foreign currences will found again @ palace. Now is the time this leadership must go. In Jesus name!!!

  44. Toad says:

    What wisdom can come from that rotten mouth of kaliat. She is demonic, a breed from biblical Jesebel. Shame on you. If you register success it becomes a song. But when things go abnormal you disown the blame

  45. Mateyu says:

    Kaliati ndiwe mbuzi mano kunsi, galu weniweni. You are saying that because you are getting everything on a silver platter. People are not asking for handouts but they want maize in the ADMARC where they can buy. If it is not found in ADMARC, then vendors should be given a fixed price which the common man can afford not the skyrocketing prices we now have. People are spending nights at the ADMARC waiting for maize to be delivered for them to buy. You may say Kamuzu ruled this country with an iron fist but things were in good order as prices of goods were regulated and the same countrywide which is not the case now. Now Mathanyula is ruling with a banana fist aliyense akugulitsa mtengo womwe wafuna which your Mathanyula president is just watching and sitting phwiii while people are suffering and dying of hunger when he could order a fixed price for a bag of maize. If you think by shielding him from failing in his responsibility, he will marry you then forget it. He is married to Kamafupa Gertrude. Since Mutharika took the reigns of power things are not going on well. We read of children dying because of eating poisonous cassava due to hunger. As for forcing people to donate things to Kamuzu, it was people like you who were telling people to donate those things to the president. Maybe you do not know, most of the things that were donated to Kamuzu were in turn given to hospitals. Now patients are also staving as their food ration is reduced. Medicines work in unison with food not on an empty stomach. There are people who cannot afford even a bag of maize. Do you mean it is bad to give them handouts? Those handouts were given mostly to the needy and not everyone. Today even those who are working are finding life unbearable. One cannot go into the shop with K10,000 as s/he would come out with just a few things which was not the case during Kamuzu’s time. Now whose fault is that? Kamuzu’s or Mutharika’s? You are a stupid woman. Civil servants underwent training for 3 to 4 years and others have worked for over 30 years but hardly reach K200,000 per month as a salary. Yet you ministers receive millions for the temporary job of no training and what you do in parliament is even worse than kindergarten kids. Instead of discussing the bills, you end up calling each other names and quarreling for simple matters. You are a very clueless woman. It is better to keep your wide mouth shut than speak the nonsense you are saying. If a family has no food, who is to blame? A neighbour or the father? Mutharika failed to run a ministry and even failed in the University Academic Freedom saga ndiye to rule a country amayesa masewera? Tell your president to resign now, now now! together with all of you and Goodall Gondwe as you all have failed us Malawians and you are all useless. You give civil servants retiring age yet you people work until kufika pomagwa ndi kumina. Talk is easy for you but action zero. Kuchikamwa koipako. Mxiiii!

  46. msewu wa boma says:

    During the shortlived tenure of Joyce Banda, Kaliati was one person who always had a snide remark against the government whenever she encountered journalists. One that pained me the most was the remark she made about maize prices when they rose under JB: “Sizimene m’mafuna zimenezo, kuti chimanga mudzigula pa m’tengo wa…” I really hope Zodiak could replay that clip now. It was said with such venom that cannot be conveyed by the written word.

    Fast forward 3 years, the same thing happens and she has the audacity to say these problems started with Kamuzu? Kaliati should know that what goes around, comes around. The midnight six badly wanted to get back into power and their wish was granted. But as they say “…be very careful what you wish for, because you just may get it”. If the DPP cabinet does get its act together fast, things are only going to get much worse

    Your honorable, Mrs Kaliati, please do not add salt to our injuries! We pay you and His Excellency millions of Kwachas to find solutions to our problems! And if you cannot find the solutions then please for goodness sake , just resign!
    Lets we forget Madam Kaliati was firing on all four cylinders just less than 2 years ago when JB was president, blaming JB for all Malawi problems! Now that Kaliati and DPP are in power, the president is not to blame?
    Being a religious person am sure she may have come across a verse in the Bible which says “do not judge for you will be judged also”. Our judgement is that DPP has failed Malawians and the best the cabinet can do is to keep quite and solve our problems!
    There is actually no need for the government to peddle lies of coups or regime change, just give the people food, medicines and improve the economy, then every Malawian will be on your side!! A Malawi sitifuna zambiri, mukukanika nokhatu!! Ingotipatsani nsima basi nkhani yatha, musataye nthawi ndi ma useless press con!

    Dpp za bingu was much better, he was an economy engineer, this DPP is not the same they need to change Chuka and Goodall, Chuka was appointed by JB, so he is pro PP, so he wants the kwacha devalued so people shoud be angry with DPP so PP should win the next elections, Goodall the fact is he is too old let him go i dont think he is now capable to run a finance minsitry on his own, Bingu was the economic engineer now we have seen Goodalls true colours on his own he does not have the knowledge to turn Malawis economy as everyday it is getting worse.

Again, suppose the economy was ticking wouldn’t you heap the praise on the dolt president? Foolish woman! you sound to underestimate the office of the presidency. Certainly, you can’t take away the president responsibility from this. Clueless!

    O…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….O
    More often than not, people confuse the most talkative people with the most wise or intelligent people. Koma ngati pali munthu wina opanda nzeru mu DPP and mMalawi muno nde ndi uyu Kaliati yu.

    If the ministers of Finance or Agriculture or Health or rats or whatever, are not performing; APM is to blame for failing to choose the right kind and/or failing to give guidance to these ministers or act when its obvious that these people are as useless as they came.
    You see, while vicissitudes are an inseparable part of life or country or an economy; a president’s actions or inaction can either amplify or reduce them.

    However, since APM came into power, there has been an exponential growth of problems because of his actions of taking no action when its needed; thus conveniently placed for all blame.
    Also, if the period a president has been in office is too short to make a change, at least he/she is expected to give hope. But APM has miserably failed to even inspire hope or show that his govt is doing something in the name of some plan of some sort to clear the mess.

    In short, only a fool thinks that a captain is not to blame if a ship sinks despite several warnings from the people on board, that the ship would sink.

    Stupid. Then you are irrelevant. Get lost. If you can’t address our problems then why are you there. You are a waste of time . Aren’t you the same guys who told us to vote for you to better our conditions and lives. I am really bitter. These guys are stupid. If you can’t get things done then quit you fools. People are dying and you are saying we should not hold you responsible. Useless government is what you are. Peter as president needs to take responsibility for our problems including accepting responsibility for the death of the innocent souls nyasa times is reporting. That’s what leaders do. You take responsibility when things get bad or for failure and share success when such is attained. That’s what happen when you have pretenders running government. Those of us who have worked with Peter are not surprised. He is inept as simple as that.

    Take it or leave it this is the worst government ever in the history of Malawi.
