    Most people from the north are idiots, I just don’t know what their parents tell them when they are young up there in the northern region

  5. Mwana wa Mfumu M'vonye says:

    Well balanced team, my foot! PP showed their true colors when they were in power, by governing like a cabal. All the important positions were given to northerners, like Kasambara and Kachale; no doubt at the advice of Joisi Banda’s husband. People will never forgive JB for that; this so-called shadow cabinet has no consequence whatsoever. JB cannot erase the grave tribalism she showed when she was president.
    People in Zomba, where JB’s mom came from, and also in Phalombe, where her dad came from were just flabbergasted: she just treated them like twentieth century lepers.
    As far as they are concerned, PP is history basi.

  7. Munya a Malawi says:

    Sometimes I wonder what special is Malawi known for. You just know to castigate people of the north who are well educated than the so called Southerners who are mare idiots , matelala, and what they know better is stealing votes. What is Blantyre City and you can not even compare it with Lusaka and you claim you live in town which town is this. Shame on you.

    The person who wrote comment number 36 should be semi illiterate, and a salvage. Comment objectively, without exposing your stupidity.

    But this CBO known as PP is very funny. PP is simply showing Malawians the ‘Kicks’ of a dead snake (Malunga). Kamulepo Kaluwa vimwembe (Zindevu) ngeti ni prisoner. Shame! If this lady known as Joyce Nyabanda still has got dreams of ruling Malawi, she must wait for Prof Peter to finish his 10 years, and then Rght Hon Chilima also to finish his 10 years and the Rght Hon Atupele Muluzi will also have to finish his 10 years. So Joyce must wait for the next 30 years. Zikumveka kodi inu a Mr Wakuba Kamanga?

    1. Objective no party affiliation says:

      They have taken all their MPs. Don’t you know that PP MPs are predominantly from the North? Akasankha outside Parlament nanga azikayankhira kuti parliamentary issues? Please let us not argue just for the same of it itherwise we are prine ro expose our ignorance. Just as MCP they have no choice but to choose their MPs who are predominantly from the centre. This is different from the State President who is not constitutionary bound to award people if one region

    2. yuona says:

      Kodi enanu mumangolankhula musakudziwa zinthu mmene ziliri? Umbuliwutu penanso siwabwino!

  13. This shows that most of you do n’t know the meaning of shadow cabinet each and every party have that structure whether they will come back or not. And pp is not north so those idiots who writes shit about people from north you better stop unless you were born from a dog.

  14. chonchobe says:

  15. Abiti Mtila says:

    PP will never rule this country. Come 2019, PP itha ngati makatani. Ngati munaluza muli mboma mungawine muli ku opposition????????? Muyisovenge. Shadows forever. DPP for life

    1. Kulinda Mtere says:

      Never say never. Conversely, ask yourself how did it happen that an opposition party defeated a ruling party and against all odds wormed itself into Government. Anything is possible in this Country.

  16. Kabwiro says:

    Atumbuka asangalala poti shadow cabinet ya PP yadzadza ndi wakwithu kkkkkkkkkk

  17. culture of Impunity. says:

    PP well balanced unlike DPP and MCP.I don’t know UDF how will it be,let us wait and see. I think UDF will have sensible and economically cabinet of with no deputies unlike three parties have now.

  22. Joel says:

    I am glad that “Kana-Kotichititsa-Manyazi” is nowhere on the PP Shadow Cabinet list.

  23. Kadakwiza says:

    What a cabinet well balanced. This is what we call a cabinet of national unity. Not this party called Don’t Please People only lomwes shaah!.

    1. The laughing one says:

      Balanced? 3 women versus how many men? At least 9 out of 22 ndi a kumpoto meaning South, Central and Eastern share 13 slots. Zoona, regardless of where they come from Kamlepo, Wakuda and Malani nkukhala cabinet material? Do we realistically expect these guys to steer the country to greater heights? Roy Kachale angatithandize? While PP is in the joking mood mwinanso atengeko Winiko akhalenso mu cabinet yawo. Our so called shadow cabinets are a farce. PP was in power for 2 years, bwanji ankaleka kukhala ndi lean cabinet. Mpira umaphweka ukakhala ku ma stand. M’mene munali m’bwalo munangotiwonetsa matope enieni

  24. Madalitso says:

    Nanga pp yatengapo shadow oti alikunja kwa parliament?

  25. Mwenecho says:

    By God’s grace this could be the next govt. It looks fairer in its selection across the nation. It also comprises of many new and derserving faces. With the God fearing leader as she has always been, this gives me hope.

  28. Disappointed says:

    It is most disheartening that only 5 months or so after general elections people are so obsessed with the desire to be ruling that all they are doing is designing shadow cabinets which can only come 5 years from now! Why can’t you help government with constructive suggestions on strategies to develop this country, achieve zero corruptions through transparency and accountability systems which even those in government will be unable to still anymore….those in opposition will also fail to steal when they themselves come into government. Please force government to put in place such systems that favor no one.

    1. Tired says:

      The purpose of shadowing is exactly for what you are suggesting – to closely observe and straighten where things are bending. Listen carefully to the ongoing parliamentary scrutiny of the budget by opposition through their shadow ministers. Tune in to Zodiak.

  35. Think Tank. says:

    How i wish people asked certain terms mean before exposing themselves in public. It very obvious that the term “shadow cabinet” is in milk way system to some commentators here. Loosely put,”shadow cabinet” means those individuals appointed as shadow ministers of opposition parties are spokespersons on matters concerning those ministries. Example,if like Jessie Kabwila will be commenting on matters of Ministry of Gender and …. This happens in all countries where there is democracy or pretense of it like here. It is there in Britain,US,France,South Africa. In SouthAfrica where ANC has been in power since 1994,the opposition has always have always appointed shadow cabinet though chances of dislodging ANC as of now are very remote. But the opposition still appoint their “shadow cabinet”.

  36. DA says:

    What?? Kamlepo and Wakuda as shadow ministers? They have also sidelined senior officials like Mkandawire. This shadow cabinet is quite sad as it shows how desperate PP is.
