PP don’t be ‘crying babies’ – Lucius Banda

Malawi’s renowned musician cum-politician Lucius Banda, who is also United Democratic Front (UDF) leader in parliament, has advised former ruling People’s Party (PP) loyalists to be criticising President Peter Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government wisely to avoid being perceived as “crying babies”.

Lucius Banda: Make constructive criticism

Lucius Banda: Make constructive criticism

Five months in power, President Mutharika has faced criticism from opposition political parties particularly the Peoples Party (PP) and  Malawi Congress Party (MCP) who continue to vehemently attack the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government on governance and economic performance.

But Banda who rejoined Parliament seven years after losing his seat to accusation of certificate forgery, on Thursday appeared to cement his party’s recent political marriage with DPP by offering word of caution to Mutharika’s critics.

“When we  were kicked out of power in 2005 as UDF. We cried and hated Bingu so much, whatever he did good or bad we were just against him. Painfully other parties were just watching us.

“I see a similar case today. So many critics on Peter Mutharika are PP supporters, what they don’t know is; things may be bad in the country yes. But whatever they say many people just think its all bitterness after losing power unexpectedly just like we did,” wrote Banda on Facebook.

He  appealed: “Lets criticise wisely to avoid looking like crying babie.”

His Facebook status attracted comments from PP fanatics including reggae artist, Limbani Banda (currently trading as Limbani Dube) who argued they never hate DPP but instead they love it. Limbani Dube is one of renowned DPP critic on social media as he never hides his love for the PP.

It was of no surprise to see Banda indirectly defending Mutharika considering the relationship DPP and UDF have recently forged following the appointment of UDF’s president, Atupele Muluzi into the cabinet.

PP officials could not immediately comment on Banda’s comments.

Meanwhile, Malawi Congress Party President Lazarus Chakwera  has attacked government for the current high cost of living and lack of financial prudence.

    The soldier for the poor. He cannot see that many people are suffering due to high prices of goods and services on the market. University education’s fees is K270,000 (From K50,000), Passport is K48,000 (From K15,100), COF is K10,000 (from K1,500), Insurance for Vehicles is K58,000, sugar is K500. So the MP cannot see here that it is not PP as a party that is crying but rather majority Malawians, except for Hon Lucious Banda and the ruling class because they do not have reality of sufferings we are undergoing. Hon Lucious, musanene kuti kulibe mame chifukwa muli pamsana pa njobvu.

  13. kyroc says:

    when nearing the previous tripartite elections,pp wanted us believe that two years period was too little a time to transform things. just after months post elections pp wants us believe that the time is enough for improved malawi.this shows that indeed PP is clueless because it is failing to understand simple logic. lucius is right,PP is nothing but just a crying baby.wasala JB,Mpinganjira ndi enanu mudziwanso!

    1. Nkhombokombo says:

      A Bwana Soldier, I don’t really pick your concern on the cries people are putting forward to the current Gvt. People could rejoice meaningfully even being ruled by DPP as it is currently if the could afford buying the basics of living. Take your time one day, stand by the vendors who sell vegetables at the market and look at the buyers’ faces when they are paying for their buy, tears almost breaking their eyelids because the price they are told is unbearable/unaffordable, they pay through their nose. Some like you Soldier, don’t remember when you last went to the market. Your market is Game Stores, Shoprite, PTC etc. where a common man rarely goes to shop. Even the much touted Chambo which used to be the national delicacy has now learnt to perch on top of tallest branches of a tree, we can’t afford. Yet you baby Soldier is happily clinging to the wings of Atupele. Eat well, one day you will need our vote and entry fee to your shows. Crying Malawian.

  29. Hendrina Gertrude Maseko says:

    Which mess are you talking about you faggot @”Zachibwana”? Don’t you realise that things only changed after your Mathanyula president went to State House? The donor community is trying to send you a message that they are unwilling to do business with another Mutharika goon , and you are failing to grasp that .

  31. Mbwiye says:

    Just two or three weeks ago, Lucius Banda was the most intelligent person on earth because he commented positively on federation. Now, he is the most ignorant person on earth because he has commented on APM’s critics. Malawians, which is which? Who should I believe? That is why people think those who advocate federation (which is good) are not taken seriously, because who ever gave opposing views was termed stupid and given all sorts of names. Is Lucius Banda ignorant because he has expressed his opinion? Are opposing views not welcome in Malawi? Is this the democracy which we voted for in 1993 referendum? This is why people think that those who want federation( I repeat that it is good) are doing so because APM whipped them in an election and are not doing so genuinely.

    I have withdrawn the respect I had for you Hon Banda. So! When we complain we are PP? Do you know how we are suffering as a result of the skyrocketing commodity prices? Do you know we are now paying K 48000 for passport? Do you know sugar is now at K 550? Do you know prices in all the leafing shops are adjusted upwards almost every 2 days? Do you know the dollar is now at K500? Do you know that all the DPP sympathizers projects that stopped have commenced as they’re now able to swindle us? Do you driving licence price has gone up? We are making noise because these people told us that the past Government was clueless and we had high hopes not what we are getting now. We were promised the truth about cashgate and what we know so far is nothing more than what we knew before this Government. Honorable you have disappointed me.

  68. The Truthful One from the West says:

    The most ill concieved and ill informed comments by Lucious Banda. Peter Mutharika and his DPP are failing Malawians. The cost of living is skyrocketing. Peter Mutharika and his DPP persuaded Malawians that they have the solutions to Malawi’s problems. Let them solve the problems. Why is Peter Mutharika asking for time to solve the problems? People are sufèring now. There is no time to wait. Bingu wa Mutharika was also asking Malawians to give him time to solve the problems when people were sleeping at filling stations due to lack of fuel. Was Peter Mutharika and his DPP lying during campaign that he is ready to solve the problems? UDF is a spent force that has gone to bed with DPP. That is why Lucious Banda is talking trash.

    I thought you call yourself soldier of the poor. The poor are now feeling the pinch of high cost of living, everything is up, they can not even afford a bag of maize yet when the poor cry out, the so called soldier of the poor scorns them. You are stupid Mr. Lucius Banda. I have followed your posts on Facebook and the most imminent thing from the posts is that you lack education. You expose your ignorance too much, you cant even analyze issues critically, you are empty headed, in short you are a dunderhead. Please don’t call yourself soldier of the poor again because you don’t qualify to be called so. You are just an opportunist masquerading as having the poor people’s welfare at heart.
