Kamlepo fires warning shot to Malawi President: Ready to be ‘victim of heartless enemy’

Outspoken Rumphi east MP and Peoples Party (PP) Vice President Kamlepo Kalua says he is ready to be a victim of a heartless enemy – ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) – and A ready to die for the benefit of the people, saying the government’s crackdown on opposition and critics will not silence him to speak about the country problems on economic and social issues.

Kalua – one of the politicians who campaigned against the fall of one party dictatorship and championed democracy in the country – made the remarks at Masintha ground in Lilongwe when the PP led by its acting president Uladi Mussa conducted a mass rally on Sunday.

He claimed to have information that himself, Ken Msonda and some Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials are on a target list by the ruling DPP)to be silenced with trumped up  treason charges for being vocal in criticizing President Peter Mutharika’s government.

“If we continue with the way they are running this government and expect to threaten us with treason charges once we criticize them then am ready with treason, I am not afraid and I have never been afraid with anybody,” charged Kalua.

“ I was not afraid with Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda who had the military, police and the young pioneers at his disposal and arrested me three times, I was not afraid with Dr Bakili Muluzi during the third term bid who arrested me eight times plus surviving assassination attempts whilst fighting for his (Peter Mutharika) brother (former president late Bingu wa Mutharika) to rule this country and I was also arrested by the DPP government for saying ‘kangwazi‘ so I can’t be afraid with this leadership [ka APM],” said Kalua .

The self-proclaimed revolutionary politician maintained his point at the just ended Public Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting in Blantyre where the opposition delegates gave president Mutharika 30 days to solve the current problems facing Malawians or should resign.

“What we are saying is that if he fails to solve these problems within 30 days, then we should have a National Transition Committee for 90 days just like it when we were going into a multiparty era then there should be elections and this is not tantamount to organizing a coup. If they kill me today then they will follow me very soon,” said Kalua.

He said if Mutharika will not resign after failing to restore the economy in 30 days there will be unprecedented protests.

“I am going to have a lone match to parliament to petition the speaker on this and if they want me to put on a military uniform then I will do that,” said Kalua with a serious tone.

He also took a swipe at the police saying they should not be involved in politics as there role is to maintain peace, law and order.

Speaking earlier,  PP secretary general  Ibrahim Matola challenged government that they are ready to offer transport to ferry maize from where they are keeping it to their constituents.

“They have been claiming that they have enough stocks of maize but we are wondering why there is none in Admarc depots. Let them tell us where they are keeping it and we are ready to offer free transport to our constituencies so that people should have access to it, we can’t just be talking when people out there are dying of hunger,” said Matola.

Earlier before the rally, armed police officers started dispersing people sayingf the party’s communication to the authorities was with conflicting dates.

It was after the discussions with senior police officers that they were allowed to hold the rally.

It was attended by members of Parliament and  senior party officials from all the regions like Ken Msonda, Ulemu Chilapondwa, Halima Daudi, Clara Makungwa, Beston Majoni, Lawrence Mpofu and Samson Msosa among others.

    Having survived those arrests does not mean that you are a stat my Brother Kamplepo- call yourself lucky. Each government has its own approach to treated nkhutukumwe ngati iwe,. What you should know is there are ruthless people in DPP and you can even regret the kind of punishment the APM administration may give you – it may be worse than Dr. Banda’s. So don’t take things for granted. Akhoza kukuphulitsa machende ngati Mugabe kuti usadzakwatenso pa moyo wako wonse. Boma simasewera, kapena usamaganize kuti amakuopa.

  17. Ada Kamlepo Kalua! The work “AFRAID” goes together with the preposition “OF” and not the “WITH”. This is my contribution otherwise these other things that you Kamlepo Kalua are insinuating are the sort of things Malawians cannot accept because APM and DPP were democratically elected and they will run the government till 2019. Mark y words, APM and his DPP came into power through the ballot. JB is outside the country after causing the economic crisis that the country is facing now through Cashgate. You, PP, MCP, CSOs through PAC are busy putting in place mechanisms to topple this legitimate government. But because the Word of God exists through Romans 13, no weapon shall prevail to unseat APM. My Jesus is alive!

  18. The Partriot says:

    This guy run away to the USA because he and his brother were afraid of Kamuzu, now he wants to bring terror to us?
    Honestly , people, this guy is the worst leader we have ever had! He does not inspire and he wants the country to burn for him??
    Come on people,we do not deserve this kind of leadership!
    No matter how much violence he or his cadets unleashes on us, we are going to survive him! Age is on our side, he does not have age on his side!
    Kwa anyamata omwe mukutumikila zoipa, please be reminded regimes change pangani zoti amene mukuwatumikila akadzachoka m’boma anthu adzakumvereni chisoni! Dont burn bridges, be visionary!!! Muziishosha!!

  20. Namacheni says:

    Kwazulu is cheating Malawians to say Kamlepo is better than Muthalika. All of them have something in common. Muthalika was in USA during Kamuzu rule. Kamlepo was also outside in South Africa during Kamuzu rule. Kamlepo was a coward who ran away to RSA.

    proven right Malawi will progress well with dictators and not soft minded people by the way is APM a dictator? search me. those Americans who are funding to mess your own country have nothing to develop the land they are just working on repairs and maintenance but why are you failing to figure out this shallow minded man? Matafale wrote that there is no winner and no looser. all we wanted was Africa and now we have Africa then why black against black?

  25. mukhwiyo mwarulha says:

    Look at this guy who calls himself a politician.Your nonsense speech does not hold water.You think you can make this government collapse.You think the people you are despising are not loved by God? You think you can rule this country? Where were you when cashgate was taking place.Mwadyaidya mwakhuta za cashgate and you come here to fool people? Look at him!

  27. Alfred says:

    President uyuyu ndiye wolephelerauja tinkanena, instead of solving peoples problems by providing them with basic needs (chimanga promoting agriculture) he starts arresting people on false allegations. You know what if people have food and does not have money its ok because they will survive but no food people will die wo! Osanyanya bwana. Who do you think will give hope to hopeless Malawians. Stop intimidating people. Please advisors give proper advise to the president because he is out line. What he is starting will not take him anywhere instead he is worsening the situation.

    APM cluelessness has reached alarming levels that no any effort can effectively defend him. He is simply a simpleton

    This Kalua guy: he likes to delve into his personal history too much, attempting to graft himself into relevance in the current political picture. Aaahhhhhhh. He needs to tone down the self adulation. He seems to be a spent force, and is more than keen to remind the rest of us what he did in the past.
    APM has thick skin, and he can take heavy hits or punches. Criticize all you want, and that is part of democracy. But to advocate for a “coup” is another beast all together. And the law is pretty clear on that; regardless of who the chigawenga is, he/she should face the LEGAL (CAPITALS FOR EMPHASIS) consequences, regardless of status. That is how it is even in the countries Kalua admires, like the USA, and UK. No hiding in sewers, like a rat: be brave, go to he Police and surrender, Ms Kabwila-Kapasula. Malawi as a whole is NOT a small version of Chirunga campus, where students and teachers just follow like sheep. Tinachenjera masiku ano (Malawians are more like goats than sheep, these days)
    These political “kids” or novices, like Kabwila-Kapasula, have opened up the hornet nest, so they should be able to deal with the hornets! Politics is not for the faint hearted.

  34. I’m ready and well prepared to join you in a full MCP youth league uniform, Pitala Mathanyula was in USA when Malawians voted for freedom of speech and association, He must fuck off to USA nobody invited him to come to Malawi.
