Kasaila, Kasakura trade barbs On Times TV: Minister accuses editor-in-chief of being MCP

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Francis Kasaila and Times Group Editor In-Chief, George Kusakula on Friday traded barbs during a live televised programme Hot Current on Times television as the minister accused the renowned writer of advancing opposition Malawi Congress Party’s (MCP) agenda.

Hot current

Hot Current, according to the hosts Kasakula and Brian Banda, is designed to discuss matters of current which are hitting headlines, taking government into task on accountability and corruption.

However, Friday’s edition clearly demonstrated how the programme is losing its professionalism and objectivity with the hosts engaged in war of words with featured guest, as Kusakura failed to control his emotions as a co-host.

Despite starting on mutual note, the programme lost direction as Kusakula and Kasaila engaged in war of words, continuously interrupting each pother’s statements forcing Banda who played the role of a referee to intervene now and then just to cool of the argument that spilled from politics to personal opinions.

While the two engaged in heated debate about the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)’s administration, hell broke loose when Kasaila labeled Kasakula as MCP operative, serving its agenda through his position as media manager.

Kasaila justified his allegations by claiming that Kasakula once contested during MCP’s primary elections for Kasungu South West in 2009.

Kasakula could not hold his breath as he dismissed the allegations, insisting he never contested in any MCP primary elections and demanded Kusaila to do a thorough research on his claims.

Kasakura, who accused President Peter Mutharika’s government of nepotisms and corruption, argued that government has failed to improve the quality of life for Malawians and that that it has no attention to economy.

The sentiments prompted Kasaila to accuse  Kasakula of being political, serving the agenda of the opposition.

“He (Kasakura) is MCP and there is evidence. 2009 he contested in Kasungu under MCP primaries, he failed. And today he has an agenda. Our agenda as government is not to give cash handouts. We are developing infrastructures that will help improve peoples’ lives. Peoples’ lives can’t change through cash handouts. We need to give people infrastructures that will help to change,” argued Kasaila.

Quizzed by the main host Brian Banda to withdraw his allegations, Kasaila stood by his claims, insisting that Kasakula is MCP operative and he therefore can’t be objective.

“If we remove politics, we will be able to understand our national agenda,” said Kasaila.

In his reaction, Kusakula accused DPP government of being a system of liars, arguing in 2009 he was at that time working for The Nation Publications Limited and never contested in any primary elections.

“You ask anybody at The Nation or MCP, I did not contest in the primary elections. During that time I was working as editor for The Weekend Nation,” insisted Kasakula.

Asked if it’s possible to have a Malawi that benefits all, Kusaila argued that it’s acceptable to have opposing views in any system of government and called for mutual agreement between the opposition and the ruling party.

Kasaila during the programme attacked the Public Affairs Committee (Pac) for being political, claiming it has an agenda against DPP.

But Kasakula defended the religious organization, saying it serves the will of Malawians while lambasting government for failing to improve the quality of life for Malawians.

Asked what government is doing to ensure its policies benefit every Malawian, Kusaila said: “We all have responsibility as Malawians to contribute to the country’s development. Even you Times Group, if you won’t pay taxes, is that being responsible? We all have to take responsibility.

He highlighted some development initiatives such as community stadiums and water supply as some of the programmes the DPP government has implemented to improve the livelihood of Malawians.

“Only Malawians can determine if government failed or not, not anybody else who has never been elected by Malawians…Look how bishops write their pastor letters; they analyze the successes and the failures. But Pac in its document, they just attacked government, meaning they have an agenda. You can say whatever bad things against DPP, but the people of Malawi know what is happening.”

Kasaila challenged that come 2019 DPP is going to win the elections, forcing Kusakula to intervene accusing government of taking Malawians for granted.

    IF A CHURCH MEMBER IS A SINNER HE /SHE BLAMES THE PREACHER !

    IN THIS CASE THE DPP
    IS BLAMING THE REPORTER OR WHATEVER THEY CALL HIM COZ THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING WORTHY
    MENTIONING

    EVEN IF A BBC REPORTER OR A VOA
    REPORTER INTERVIEWS OUR MINISTERS THEY WILL BLAME THE REPORTER OF THIS AND THAT

    WHY ??? THEY ARE CONFUSED !

    Kasaila ife sindife zitsiru kapena osazindikira. What do you mean by saying “Only Malawians can determine if government failed or not, not anybody else who has never been elected by Malawians”? Do you mean only those in elected position should be assessing government not the electorate? Mbuzi!!!! Ndimakupatsa ulemu all this time; sindimadziwa kuti ulibe nzeru chonchi. I withdraw my respect for you. Why have you been so much brainwashed by this failed president? Harawara, mwalankhulatu and I can not agree more with you. Kumeneku ndiye kulankhula and you are not the type of Kasaila and Dausi who fail to analyise issues and instead they attack personalities. Zomvetsa chisoni; dziko silingatukuke if we continue keeping such caliber of people in position. Kasaila, Dausi and your president please have a listening ear.

  3. ndondwa says:

    I personally enjoyed the program ndipo big up Brian & George kuziwamvetsa kuwawa a DPP amatitenga a Malawi ngati zitsiru get out Francis & your DPP nzako ndi uja Dausi anakhaula I like the program ndiye nazoni.

    This is the Malawian version of the BBC Hard Talk. Bravo to Times TV. For us who are fond of listening to the Hard Talk program there is nothing strange here. However there is need for the two gentlemen to know that this ends at studio level. There is no need to take this fight outside the studio. I hope Francis and George shook hands after the program.

  7. kings says:

    Thumbs up George Kasakula, DPP gurus thinks we are puppets, they will face the reality very soon.

    Both are too I motional. These dog fights are good sometimes. They reveal skeletons in the cupboard.

  10. Banda says:

    Ngati MBC imapanga za boma, times tv za opposition. Where is the problem? You want us to be in the dark?

  11. karonga says:

    That is where I came to a conclusion that some ministers in the DPP government are zombies just by looking at the way this Kasaila approached issues. Waste of my precious time indeed.

  12. MCP WENIWENI says:

    Hey Brian and Kasakula, Enafe tinasiya kale kale kuwonera MBC chifukwa cha zopusa zawo. Our Only hope is The Hot Current Program. In fact please, please Make it VERY, VERY , VERY Hot for DPP if you can. Musaopsedwe. Iwowo akudziwa kuti, the moment they stop watching and listening to The Hot Current, then they are out of Malawi. Palibe mfundo imene angaipeze yonamizira anthu kuti adzawa votere.

    Make this Program ,VERY , VERY , VERY Hot for them. Ziwanthu zabozazi.

  13. Harawara says:

    I didn’t watch the debate but from the comments I can sense the mixed feelings of those who did. My takes are:
    1. Political parties need the media to advance their agenda, hence we see MBC serving interests of DPP. There is nothing wrong therefore for Times to align itself with MCP if it does. This is what happens internationally CNN vs Fox. Alliances naturally are formed when values of different organizational match., Russia and Iran; MBC and DPP; If the values of DPP match those of MBC you see congruence. The same might apply to Times and MCP

    2. Does journalism bar its members from expressing their political inclinations? If we stopped all professions from commenting on politics what kind of politics would we have? The media is the eye of political games, they see more and deeper that we do so let them tell us what they see and feel. Journalism text books might prescribe that journalists should not take sides in politics. The reality is the opposite. They too get infected by diseases of mismanagement and corruption spread by those in power.

    3. Debates like those must continue. those with weak minds who cant contain seeing lighting barbs at their masters should not watch them. Politics is most powerful profession because it decides how, when, where other professions should practice their trade. Politics isnt like chess where everyone remains quite, it is like wresting, may be more than wresting because politics do lead to civil wars. The debate was between a force that said things are ok in Malawi and a force that said NO there is poverty, mismanagement, corruption and injustices in Malawi.

    3. Pipo should remember that the concept of democracy is vague sometimes. It says majority should rule yet in our case the majority is the opposition 64 vs 36%. The majority of Malawians 64% did not want DPP to be in power and voices of 64% is louder than those of 36%. This is error that will be resolved by the 50+1 electoral system.

    1. tchingo says:

      am just curious, what will happen if all candidates fall short of 50+1 mark like it happened in the previous elections?
      in other words, will people like Chakwera/APM attain this majority vote? if not what then?

  15. Diffi says:

    Imagine Brian Banda could fail even to calm and discipline kasakula.

    Look at one Wise kasaila gives himself time to listen and then he responds.
    Look then at one vocal, noisy and poor kasakula.
    Shame on you Brian and your boss.
    Indeed Brian is been used to advance agenda of MCP and Kasakula.
    Under the hot current garb, they speak but finally, unvailed and exposed they lay.
    Disperately trying to hide but kasaila is another shooter.
    A sniper.
    You were alone talking thanks to the one who suggested this system of involving other party.
    This has helped us knowing your agendas.
    Next time keep your cards and you dare playing, play well.

  16. Kasakula says:

    Kasakula ndi Mbuzi yeniyeni and has no substance in his head, his head is full of mucus

  17. vavlov says:

    The fact is simple – Kasaila is the one who was defending his failing party, so his arguments were simply stupidly in tow of his failing party. Kasakura on the other hand, was drilling the nail even deeper into the comfort of the obedient member of DPP. The truth of the matter is DPP, listen and improve, if do not, you will be severely punished by voters in 2019. You should consider yourselves lucky to have won 2014 general elections, because Mai Joyce Banda was so busy stealing she couldn’t even see what was happening around her. DPP, reform and shape up or pack your bags because 2019 wont be a riggable general election.

  18. Kudzadza Lembwende says:

    A politician forbidding others to talk politics yet every citizen is born political. Here there was no problem with two operatives from two parties talked to each other. Kusaila wanted Kasakura to be his yes bwana kind of host, nay. He met his much and cried wolf. The way dpp is running this country they can’t be sure of themselves. They are always defensive. Kusaila provoked Kaskura deliberately to derail the debate. Brood of vipers.

  19. Mwana Wa Kumudzi says:

    Bravo Brian Banda and George Kapasule. Malawi is in the hands of thieves. Malawi needs serious minded Malawians to deal with with what we are going through as a country.

  20. Tangwena says:

    More fire Banda…. More fire Kasakula…. We cant all be fools? Infrasctrure yake iti??

  21. kings says:

    Vuto la dpp ndi lakuti akungowona pamphuno pao basi osaona kutali. And to advise them is just a waste of time. They will never listen to any voice of reason. Asiyeni adzaziona 2019.

  22. Okawale says:

    Its too early to start talking about 2019 elections bwana concentrate on development issues. Development will campaign for you rather than kumatisokosa pano. See how poor people are now. See how poor and embarrassing our roads are becoming day in day out.

  23. mulopwana mutokotoko says:

    Kasakula is MCP diehard.He works with MCP leadership and drives the agenda of his masters pa Times TV.Everyone who is honest can testify that things have taken the right direction. The Dpp government is delivering on its campaign promises.No wonder it will carry the day in 2019 elections

  24. Jototo says:

    Kasakula akugwila ntchito yabwino ndipo ife tikutha kumanva maganizo osiyana siyana chifukwa cha Times. Zomwe inayenela kuchita Mbc .

  25. Mipando says:

    Boza a DPP . kasakula is an employee. He never contested in any primary election in MCP. It’s really true that DPP is a party of no sense at all. You have miserably failed to govern this country. APM is not a leader but a sign post in the making.PAC is offering a solution to sleepy leadership. Thumbs up PAC!

  26. john says:

    My advice to Times TV is simple; try as much as possible to be professional, objective and non partisan. This program should be aimed at discussing key issues of national interest how as a country we can advance development, good governance, combat corruption, nepotism, quota system, kubera zisankho etc

  27. akanyeqamtsetere says:

    plz kasaila,intensify the attack of these two lads,nyanjaiko and katsakula.the must know that freedom of speech does not mean character assasination of those in power.katsakula clearly demonstrates that he is mcp in nature with his nyanjaiko.a jounalist is supposed to stand for the truth. katsakula cannot declare that he does not see anythin good in malawi if he means to be a professionalist journalist and not mcp loyalist. why dont u feature blunders in mcp sometimes. when deliberately decide to to pick a quarrel dont regret the outcome. now malawi fox know that katsakula, the magalimoto vopuma is mcp loyalist. shame, but dont abuse your position for you will be held accountable for your sins. see now what kasaila has done to you by unmasking you. you are not servin the interests of malawi fox, the nation is convinced that their govt is servin them,their kids go to sch,health centres are operational,roads constructed, civil service reformed, food security intensified,community colleges takin shape,katsakula

    1. Davie Kalidere Maluwa says:

      Many people are lacking these things in their areas boss. Only the Southern region can boast of good roads. Other regions are still behind on this. There is still a lot more to be done. Again the MBC is not sharing its plate to other parties which is also fueling these debates.

  28. Mhesha says:

    Atleast for this particular time George was told right in the face.. .. the guy has been an MCP harbinger for years using the editorial desk of his employer to advance MCP agenda. For Brian ndiye, mmmmm mukudziwa kale.
    Big up Francis!

  29. Malawian Mwanavava says:

    Brian Banda and Kasakula are right. DPP has taken us First Class Citizens of this beautiful country Malawi for granted. They are using ignorance of rural Malawians to advance their agendas of stealing from Malawians. Under DPP Malawi will never develop, under DPP Social services will continue to go down, under DPP no donor will come to support our budget and country, under DPP we will never never move forward. DPP has no heart for Malawians but their own bellies. Just look at how they are handling the Corruption issues in our country? Look at how selective the Malawian Law is applied to less privileged Malawians and Malawians of opposing views? Is DPP doing any tangible development, in fact not even a single development? Go to our hospitals;you will rarely find medicine, Ambulances were grounded many years ago. Food to patients is no longer there in our hospitals. Check where patients are sleeping at Queens, Kamuzu, Mzuzu Central hospitals, Look at how things are now at Nsanje hospital where this empty head Kasaila comes from, go to Neno where this no facts talkative Minister Dausi comes from? Malawians it’s high time we stop to get satisfied with pretty issues and handouts during campaigns but rather we take our leaders to task to develop this country. It’s unfortunate that DPP says we are lazy yet Malawi is being developed by ourselves not government. In fact it’s an insult to tell us that we are lazy, we work hard in our fields and yet you can’t provide affordable fertilizer. We are working so hard to build Malawi yet you can’t provide affordable cement like our neighboring countries. We are working so hard to buy second hand cars from Japan yet you can’t provide good roads, we are working so hard to own things yet you can’t provide security and our hard earned money and properties are stolen every day by you Kasaila in Government and your friends like Chaponda and the Nankhumwas’ and the thugs you are terming in your party. Brian Banda and Kasakula keep up a good fight of fighting for Malawians. DPP HAS FAILED BIG TIME IN THE HANDS OF PETER MUTHALIKA. We wish Kamuzu had lived long, we Malawians wish Bingu of first five years had come before Bakili Muluzi and in fact we wish even Joyce Banda was the president today, rather what we have now. Malawians it’s high we wake up and fight for our country. These retired people who are ruling are here only to enjoy their pensions at the expense of poor Malawians. Just go visit Chipata in Zambia, Mbeya in Tanzania and Tete in Mozambique, you will indeed believe that these old and retired forks are here to enjoy their retirements. Leading a country is a very serious job which needs serious minded, young and energetic person. I CRY FOR MALAWI

  30. Richard Soko says:

    DPP and Kasaila you have proved to thieves. You think citizens from other political parties cannot get jobs in Malawi because they are not DPP. In 1994 we removed MCP and Kamuzu because of that. Now you through DPP and.APM want to bring back the single party dictatorship?
    Sorry.not in Malawi again.

  31. Malawian Mwanavava says:

  33. ovaha mbwiyanga says:

    A Kasakula you are a big embarrassment in 2014 you also thought MCP will win. I told you MCP has no structures in the South. Chakwera still thinks Malawians will vote for him because he is a Pastor. Shame on you. Popeza nanunso your agenda is to enrich yourselves not to serve poor Malawians. Zusiyana pati

    Cadets you are also DPP what’s the issue by being MCP?

  35. chizo says:

    pano programme imeneija ikumanyasa sikusangalasaso.

  36. Atate says:

    I trust many private media houses except Times Group. You see, the biasness that is portrayed by Times has reached unprecedented level. Times and MBC are actually two sides of the same coin; one talking about bad things about government while the other talking about good things about government. All these media houses should borrow a leaf from how Zodiak conducts it’s business; presenting issues of national importance from all perspectives. Kasakura is nothing but a diehard MCP operative masquerading as a journalist.

  37. mwanawamkulu says:

    yes media shud act as watch dogs…bt mr kasakula is driven by emotions in his arguements…he wants to fight every thing that the other side has said even wen its true,no wonder one cud easily assosiate him to mcp…. programm z nva exciting…he shud stop bein a co-host.

  38. ichocho says:

    Kasakula and Brian are part of the opposition…. everybody knows that period.

    your program has lost truck boys

  39. zondiwe says:

    It does not matter if Kasakula has political preferences. Why is government failing to convince him? Government needs to respond to the direct queries that it is facing like corruption and nepotism. How does one defend these evils? They will cost the ruling party come 2019.

  40. Vuto says:

    This program siyabwino, I would suggest inu a DPP don’t attend this program anymore coz both Brian Banda and Whoever Kasakula ndi a Mcp and ndiyosapatsa chidwi kwa ife achinyamata, let Dpp finish their term and come 2019 fight for it to win then mudzakoze zomwe dpp ikulephera

  41. Ineyo says:

    I could not believe what I was hearing from this interview. This minister is very dull and very shallow. If this is the caliber of ministers/politicians in Malawi, then we have a big problem. This minister is a reflection of the president himself, given that the president appointed him.
    Today is a sad day. We are in trouble, BIG trouble.

  42. DOBO says:

    Though I haven’t watched the programme in which Kasaila and Kasakula allegidilly traded varbs,I like that programme for two reasons: 1. The programme is so hot that it exposes the. real characters of people involveld just as Tough Talk on BBC.2.The prigramme exposes weakiness and strength of people and institutions they present. Now coming to what Mr Kasaile accusing Kasakulla being of MCP ,it s not strange to hear that from Kasaile for two reasons I have discovered from the mindset of people from Southern region and Malawians in general.1. Most people in Southern region think that any person coming from Central region is a supporter of MCP .2. Most Malawians in geneneral think that when you express political opinions against the Government you labelled being for the opposition and if your opinions are against. opposition you are labelled being ruling party. Even our leaders are also adopting such silly mindset.Am 100% sure that what Mr Kasaila said about Kasakula being of MCO is coning from the two mindset above not that Kasakula contested in MCP primaries but actually because either his opninions are against the Government or because he is from Central region.You know,most times politician statements target weak minds.It totally illogical to say somebody belongs to certain party now for being a contestant in primaries of that party.I see no logic in that.You can not say Mr Dausi,and others who contested as MCP. sometimes back are still MCP..That is totally missing the dynamics of politics..In politics things and people do change with times changing.. The political MCP of those days is not the same or the DPP of 2009 can not be the same as DPP of taday .Never!!!

  43. Ekzie says:

    U complain if your party DPP is being spotted on wrong doing,
    And again you use MBC to attack opposition but Times TV is giving u headache.
    Simunati, stop your nonsense approach on things that matters such as improving economy, remove Tax on water,
    There is a saying ” Madzi ndi moyo” then u r putting tax on it, u want people to die????

    Am just a concern citizen and not affiliate to any party.
    I won’t vote again for the entire of my life, just wasting my humble time standing on queue for the whole day.

  44. Kasakula Exposed says:

    Well done Kasaila for exposing Kasakula the MCP politician masquerading as a journalist. Some of us are professional journalists we would not engage in unprofessional conduct of the likes of Kasakula and Brian Banda. The duo are so obsessed about towing party lines to an extent that they have thrown journalistic ethics to the dogs.

  45. Alfred Minjo says:

    Thats why George himself is a corrupted guy. It is true he failed in the primaries for MCP party and akukana chiani? Komatu lero ndiye wakumana nazo ndithu. How can 15 people resign in Times group if all were rousy. He is an MCP operative. Brian, we also know which party you do side. Your questioning was not healthy. You were siding George….don’t forget what Ken Msonda told or educated you on his last interview with him. Whatever you are doing will atleast haunt you one day my brother..

  51. Bingiza says:

    Kasakula is too emotional for a reporter, let alone Editor.
    Kasaila’s accusations or revelations, whatever they were, were too personal, childish and immature for an Honourable Minister.
    Brian Banda, please stick to issue that can help in moving Malawi forward.

  52. Drake says:

    As much as I enjoy watching Times TV the unfortunate thing I have noted
    is that this media house fights the DPP government, they havent said anything
    good about the Government. This media group belongs to MCP and we should
    not expect to see any balanced reports or something positive

  53. Phsyatangu says:

    Anthu akalephela kutsogolela mdichoncho,aliyense woyankhula choose ndi mdani wawo.

    Times imapeleka mpata oti Dausi,kasaila ndi ena onse a Dpp omva maganizo awo,koma MBC simachita zimenezi.

    Honourable Minister,Kasakula can never and will never talk good about DPP regime. He is one of those with political leaning with another party. It is no wonder that their profesionalism will be compromised one day. Of late, we have seen the media circle being against the goverment of the day. Is it what you were taught at the media institution? This is just a reflection of what they are. A man of knowledge uses the words with restraint but this is not the case with the media. Be reminded that,if no one can completely avoid foolish words,then in one sense our speech is a lifelong exercise in damage control.

      Just like MBC radio and MAC TV does….zaukape basi

  56. Chingwe cha mbuzi says:

    Times can do better. Kasakula is not a broadcast journalist. He is a great embarrassment to the journalism fraternity for his “I know it all”! It is high time that The Times Group invested in more training for its Editors.

  57. It is true Brian Banda and Kasakura ndi amene akupangitsa kuti enafe should lose interest with programmes of Times

  58. changolimba says:

    Everybody knows that Kasakula is an MCP operative. We know he meets Chakwera regularly for briefings and advice. He is in the inner circle of Chakwera’s machinery. Pansi pano palibe chobosika. Little by little the truth will be known and muyaluka nazo izi.

      Zimatero zikakhala kwa mzako. ….MBC imatani….the same sh*t…

      2. tchingo says:

        either way it is a shame and mockery to journalism. Kuba ndi koipa basi even if everyone is doing it. we have pathetic journalists at both the MBC and Times. they fail in matters of ethics.Period.
