Mia rules out return to frontline politics: I’m busy farming

Former minister Sidik Mia has ruled out a return to frontline politics and cooled off talks linking him to Peoples Party (PP) leadership.

In a telephone interview on Thursday after reports emerged a section of some PP members had put up his name forward for PP leadership, Mia ruled himself out for that role?

“I am in Chikwawa at my farm. I am busy farming and no politics for me,” said Mia,

Asked if he had heard of the reporting that some PP officials would want to persuade him to rejoin the party he ditches when he served it as its vice president, Mia said he is “switched off” to politics.

“ My focus is on my farming business. I am out of touch with politics,” he said.

Mia continued to say that he has been linked with return to politics even with Malawi Congress Party, United Democratic Front and Democratic Progressive Party but that all are “unfounded rumours.”

“I had my time in politics, as of now let me do my business ,” he said.

PP dismiss ‘rumuors’

Meanwhile, PP spokesman Ken Msonda has said the reports linking politicians into the party’s leadership role are “undemocratic line of the thought and rumours “ which he said are being fabricated by their detractors.

He said th ir political competitors want to divert peoples’ attention from numerous economic and social challenges currently affecting Malawi and “the DPP administration’s failure to address these challenges.”

Msonda explained that PP Constitution stipulates that Joyce Banda is the party President till the party holds another convention in 2017.

“Those willing to re-join or joining the party should emulate Rt Hon Hastings Khumbo Kachali political maturity by rejoining or joining the party as members. Those vying for party leadership should wait for the convention in 2017,” said Msonda.

    When people are at the middle of things that is when they do remmember about the other people.i guess mia has shown to us malawians that he is matured politician and he knows very much about the malawi politics.

  4. Amfumu says:

    Mr. Mia, that’s now reasoning. don’t allow these people to spoil you. They do not want to work as you do but just to steal gvt. revenue.

  5. Che Wanimiliyoni says:

    I dont like Mia’s reason for not rejoining politics. It is childish, false and deamining of others. All policians leave their professions to join politics after being called by the suffering public to transfer their profession success to public service. Was Kamuzu not medicining, Muluzi not businesing, Bingu not economicsing, Joyce Banda not NGOing and Peter Muthalika not professoring when they were called to frontline politics? And you are insinuating their decisions were not in good faith. Come out bwana people want you osavutavuta ngat mukufunsiridwa ai? Let your madam and children do the farming while you keep these DPP guys on their toes. Nobody can tell who will be taking the presidential oath of office at Bingu Stadium come May 2019.

    Ken Msonda don’t waste your time sitting your fat ass on the floor at the Pps office.Mia is making a fortune in Lower Shire in his farming business.Even his cattle is listening to him.Joyce Banda has bolted and will never come back from her self exiled foreignland.She is even seeking asylum to spoil herself from the cashgate loot on her last days.Forget about this Pp thing.Pp is dead as Udf.The two contending parties in Malawi are Dpp and Mcp.Pezani chochita cha phindu A Msonda.Look at how Mia is enjoying at his quadbike while his beautiful Ngenge is following behind.A Msonda ndale za PP sizikutengelani mwina kulikonse.

  7. Moyenda Kachaso Zimwere says:

    Thumbs up Hon Ken Msonda, always there to defend the party.
    I’m not a politician but every time Ken Msonda opens his mouth to speak about something in connection to Malawi politics you can tell this man is indeed a born again Christian cum politician.
    I just hope Joyce Banda sees the good work being done by her party spokesman but knowing African politics such people don’t benefit amadyera ndi ena, look at cashgate issue Msonda is not involved Joyce amadya ndi ena aboza akuba. SHAME! MUGANIZILENI MNYAMATAYU AMAI!

  15. MULHOMWE WANKULU says:

    Much as am not a PP Supporter nor DPP but i totally agree with Mr. Ken Msonda that these rumuors are fabricated by DPP government, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, just to parry away the wrath of people due to problems that are haunting Malawians. Could you please DPP stop that nonsense ASAP!!!! You are trying to disturb MCP as well but you wont yield any positive result, inuyo muzingoonelera UDF’yo basi kamba koti ikumayendetsedwa ndi ka Baby (Atupele). Buuushit zanu!!!!!

  16. Charombanthu says:

    Thumbs up to you bwana! That shows maturity on the part of bwana Mia. Osamangoti ka-ka-ka munthu watopa. Leave the stage for the younger generation who should also show their political dexterity. After all, you can still contribute to the economic development of the nation by what you are doing there in lower Shire – farming…

  24. Kanthu Ako!! says:

    He would be the best candidate, just switch the letters in his name and he becomes Mai, that is what Malawians want aMai.

  25. Chiri Ndi Mutu Chiri Ndi Nzeru says:

    Hon Mia: that is civilisation. If all policitians could think like you we could have a better nation.

    Malawi can be served in a variety of forms not just through politics. Iam impressed with your farming business. And I am wishing you well.

  26. Zagwa says:

    I wish it were true that you want to stay in your cattle farming and not considering to rejoin politics, because that is what you are good at seriously BUT, knowing Malawian politicians, this is probably a lie and within a few weeks we will hear that you are the VP of the PP. What an underdeveloped, mediocre nation!

  27. Let it rain says:

    Thats fantastic Mia, continue with ur farming. Politics is dirty game.
