Nankhumwa’s big mouth vomits again: Cut the Chaff

Remember that day when Information and Tourism Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa opened his mouth and told journalists that he had delivered to the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) video footage from State House closed circuit television (CCTV) showing the then president Joyce Banda meeting Cashgate suspect Osward Lutepo in what Naknhumwa implied linked the two to the conspiratorial looting of billions at Capital Hill?

Nankhumwa

Nankhumwa: Business as usual, remains blue-eyed boy to President Mutharika

The ACB quickly said they had not received any CCTV footage while Nankhumwa insisted he had dispatched it even as some strong voices pointed out those CCTV cameras at State House have not worked in several years.

Up to now, only Nankhumwa knows where that elusive video is, probably still on its way to the anti-graft agency, who knows! But we are still waiting for it to surface.

Then there is this latest rumbling about the late president Bingu wa Mutharika’s death, which Nankhumwa now links to some ‘JB’ hit squad.

President Arthur Peter Mutharika (APM) — the late Head of State’s brother — has since disowned Nankhumwa’s claims, saying he does not believe in gossip.

Ouch!

But that is not enough Mr. President. In a normal country, Nankhumwa would not be a Cabinet minister by now after the shameless remarks he uttered at Ndata at the sombre function meant to commemorate the life of the late Bingu.

Two things would have happened by now: Either the President would have fired Nankhumwa on the evening news on Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) the same day or Nankhumwa himself would have resigned.

But because this is Malawi where everything is business as usual despite the President telling us or lying to us that his government is business unusual, Nankhumwa — who appears to have gone underground after the embarrassing episode — will remain minister and a blue-eyed boy to the President.

But truth be told, Nankhumwa is an embarrassment to the nation and the President and these are the people who will destroy APM just like some people did to his late brother.

I am calling him an embarrassment to the President because, come to think about it, if Nankhumwa tells us that Bingu was killed, does it mean that the Information Minister is confirming that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) flew a dead body to South Africa?

Does he also confirm that that Bingu was declared dead at Kamuzu Central Hospital (KCH) on April 5 2012 and not on the 6th or 7th as the DPP insists he was taken alive to South Africa?

Secondly, if Bingu was killed and the last person to be with Bingu or I should say the one who saw Bingu collapse under her watch was a DPP MP, is Nankhumwa telling us that she should be questioned in connection with what the minister says was the Bingu ‘killing’ or was she the hired hand?

Thirdly, why did Nankhumwa not tell the President or the people at Ndata that the defunct newspaper he was holding in his hands was linked to the party?

And was it necessary to utter those words inside a church? As far as I am concerned, that was in church because the Catholic Church was conducting mass right there! Isn’t this an embarrassment to the Catholic Church?

And what does Nankhumwa want to achieve? Joyce Banda is already done and dusted.</p>

All we want from her is to come home and answer some very difficult questions, including whether she played any role in Cashgate.

So, when you bring this madness, aren’t you giving her ammunition to tell the world that the current administration is all up for persecution not prosecution?

Nankhumwa must spare us the national embarrassments.

And again in the first place, why did Nankhumwa speak at that function? In what capacity or role? In a normal situation, was it not the Vice-President Saulos Chilima who was supposed to ask the President to speak in terms of government protocol?

And talking about the Vice-President, we all heard the sound advice from Chief Ngongoliwa telling the President at the same function to stand guard against those telling him to start abandoning his deputy. This is a mistake the DPP should not and must not repeat.

It is unfortunate that it had to take the chief to say this in the wake of speculations that all was not rosy between the two, but it would have been better if the President talked publicly about his unity with the Veep just like Uhuru Kenyatta has done in Kenya — demonstrating strong leadership and publicly announcing his confidence in his deputy William Ruto.

This is what Uhuru wrote on his Facebook page: “…I expressed my confidence in Deputy President William Ruto and those wishing to see squabbles between us will be disappointed… Tell them there is a new generation of leaders whose approach is different.”

Show me a great, strong, business unusual leadership and I will show you Uhuru. Show me mediocrity and recklessness and I will show you Nankhumwa.

  10. Charombanthu says:

    Good and valid points raised by Ephraim in this article. How I wished the DPP spin doctor responded to these points. Is Nankhumwa implying that Bingu died here in Malawi??? I thought these guys informed the nation during that midnight (6) press briefing that he died in South Africa. Which is which now?? What do you want the nation to believe? Let Bingu’s sould rest in peace…..

    Do you people know the term”energy draining”? It is when someone has taken over your power or energy from your body whether by magic, vampirism or by manipulation. If you feel self-irrelevant or less important when you meet certain people know for sure that they took or drained your body energy in one of the above mentioned ways or the other. Those who do not believe me conduct your own research about body energy draining so don’t wonder if you see Peter shivering when he sees Nankhumwa or Ben Phiri they took away his energy he is alone.

  13. Eden says:

    I like Nankumwa very much.Go deeper so that we should know more about D phi phi.All these are not coming from him.he is just a loud speaker.We have heard about CCTV,Bingu died in Malawi and not in JHB.next is ………

  14. John K Black says:

  18. I thought Nankhumwa is govt spokesperson. Meaning he speaks what his bosses have agreed? I think we should blame those he was speaking for. They know exacly what they are telling the nation. I believe after graftting their names in police cells they want to blackmail us that they are very innocent. But Ntata knows everything about these ppo. Nankhumwa, pliz we are fed-up by the lies yo bosses send u to tel the nation.

  26. tuvitwana says:

    I REPEAT, NANKHUMWA WILL collapse COZ OF OVER EATING. TOO FAT FOR A MAN, I DON’T THINK HE’S HEALTHY

  27. dingiswayo mpezeni says:

    Chubby faced Nankhumwa is too dull.With this type of politicians you can’t expect Malawi to go very far.No wonder the standards of Malawi are going down each and every day.Why Pitala tolerates such nonsense from Nankhumwa speaks so much of what a leader he is.

  28. Chifira says:

    Mathanyula is very weak as a President. He lets Nankhumwa and Ben Phiri manipulate him. Thay have him wrapped around their little fingers. These two men will be responsible for Mathanyula’s downfall.

  29. ADE says:

    YOU SHOULD NOT BE WORRIED ABOUT NANKHUMWA, HIS BEHAVIOUR TELLS US MORE ABOUT HIS BOSS. AFTER SUCH A BIG LIE ABOUT CCTV AND CLAIMING THAT BINGU WAS MURDERED, THE PRESIDENT STILL FINDS HIM SUITABLE. MWINA ZIMENE AMANENA AMAMUTUMA.

  30. Julius Phiri says:

    If Nankhumwa is having valid evidence why not go to court and stand as a witness .He demonstrate gossiping spirit .He want to twist peopel ‘ s thinking .honourable Minister please take proper channel if u believe your stories are true .

  31. Guley says:

    Nankhumwa is too fat he needs to start jogging . that look is not good for a man
