Youths in Malawi’s northern districts of Karonga and Chitipa have honoured Speaker of parliament Richard Msowoya as the only leader who is “politically mature” as well as a freedom fighter for northern region.

The district’s youth representative Steve Simsokwe cited Msowoya’s resignation as the minister of education in 2009 during the late Bingu Wa Mutharika’s administration due to the quota system, being in supportive for federal system of government as well as sticking to his party as major contributing factors to the honour.

“He has always been fighting for our welfare as the people of the north in different scenarios such as quarter system,” said Simsokwe.

Simsokwe further described other politicians, traditional and religious leaders as the fortune seekers and that their silent on the issue of federalism is one of the evidence that they have been muted.

“As for other politicians, traditional and religious leaders we have already lost trust in them because they are financial seekers that’s why they are changing parties and decisions now and then, for instance they are now silent on the issue of federalism which many of them have been calling for and its only Msowoya who has stood for us,” Simsokwe explained.

He said the youths have prepared to crown the speaker with an award soon after the current sitting of parliament and that his behaviour is strongly translating the goodness of his party the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

In his remarks, Msowoya thanked the youths for the recognition and has pledged to continue fighting for the welfare of the region as well as the country as a whole.

“Am happy with the initiative because this shows that my people, region even country are pleased with my work or commitment and I pledge to continue with it,” said Msowoya.

Support him




Lets work together for the benefits of the people not selfishness, make our Malawi a place to live in, give me support as am coming to unite us all, stop pointing fingers and embrace one other

I totally believe and agree with this observation. Many northerners , learned or not are not principled. Each bait they fall for it and bite it. Most are selfish and only fight for themselves even if they are old and have nothing to lose they still want to be popular and use their intelligence by scorning the few northerners who stand up for the people. If for once borrow a leaf from the Jews we can make a big difference. Even if were denied the opportunity to rule because of our minority status but we can and will always be… Read more »

Written like a true mice-eater. Good job!

The formular to get DPP in opposition permanently was when Msowoya partnered with MCP for northerners to support the Chakwera/Msowoya team but northerners missed it big time. Let this be a lesson in 2019.
