Take a stand on gays: Muckraker on Malawi govt’s ‘reverse patriotism’

Jean Kalirani is an interesting woman. The other day she taught us a strange brand of patriotism when she said we should be looking the other way when people are stealing money from government because hollering against such acts will scare away investors and donors.

Lesbian kiss: Malawi still criminalises same-sex  lrelationships

Lesbian kiss: Malawi still criminalises same-sex lrelationships

Actually, Madam Minister, that is reverse patriotism.

She came back with her strange reasoning. She said although Malawi has asked for nearly US $400,000 from the Global Fund to check the spread of HIV/Aids among homosexuals, one will still be liable to serve the ‘scary’ 14 years in jail when one is ‘caught’ in a tryst with a partner of their sex.

Now, now, now, what are we saying? Will the nearly K200 million be used to bait people into coming out so that the Nyakawa Usiwa Usiwas of this world should have a field day locking them up for a life time? What stupid gay person will come out to access these intervention strategies while they know that they will not even use the condoms for a police van will be waiting outside the consulting room to haul them away to prison?

Or maybe, for she has taught us not to cry blue murder when Aids money is being abused, Kalirani wants her ministry to have idle money that can be abused into funding the launch of a trust and a cultural jamboree with nothing to do fighting Aids?

C’mon, good people, it is either we accept we have gays and lesbians in our midst or continue tantalising ourselves with our God-fearing tag and continue denying consenting adults the opportunity of loving whomsoever they want to love. We cannot eat our cake and still have it.

Those who manage the Fund will be out of their mind to give us money to intervene in a problem we say we do not have. If we are saying there are no homosexuals in Malawi why should we have Aids intervention programmes for a group we do not recognise exists?

  2. lex says:

    God forgive them and give them knowledge to understand the truth of your words,but my fellow Malawians as you are doing that we should also remember john 11:35,and you have to ask yourself that why jesus is crieng

    theese are last days,let those that want to marry of the same sex do it,its not like they dont know the word of GOD they do..satana naye ndi anthu ake…ziwanda,asiyeni achita izo mitima yawo yafuna.pakubwera pa AMBUYE azayankha,we are not their keeper

  5. medrian kaunda says:

    In Malawis case, is there a connection between being god-fearing and being dim? It is about time to wake up and realise that prayers alone does not solve anything, but just lets everything to become worse and worse. DPP stresses the need for prayers to address all their mismanagements, but this is just to keep the people meek and passive.

  6. Malindima says:

    We all know that HIV is contracted through blood contacts. We all know that this is common in unprotected sex whether man with man or man with woman or woman to woman.it the responsibility of every human being to go for testing to know your status and manage yourself.You will never be segregated because you don’t have to go there together with your partner. Why should there be a special treatment for the mathanyulas then?
    Please give us a break on this silly story?

  7. amakhosi mukulugenzi says:

    Having carnal knowledge against the order of nature is an offence in the laws of malawi. And its a sin in the holy bible thus why pipo from sodom and Gommorah perished . Malawi will follow suit . Tizafa ndithu due to the love of money.

  8. Abiti Sipoko says:

    You are right Gomezg anthuwa angofuna azitibowa ndi za gayzi kodi abale ufulu wamankhwala ndi malangizo a edzi ndi a aliyense. Why do you want special attention just becoz kuMalawi kuno sanaloleze za gay?. Pls za gayzo ndi za abnormal ndipo sizoyeneranso kumazikambakamba zingopangani nchibisibisi mwamva!

  9. Devil at its best step!Its k3 which made Iscariot to betray Jesus,now the same money will make some foolish Malawians to betray our country into the hands of devil.

    Ohhh Malawians!!!! Where are we heading to??

    Shame on poor Malawi!

  10. dafuq??? says:

    what a waste of good food. shame

  11. maganizo muganizeni says:

    I have heard a lot of people saying Malawi is a God fearing nation hence cannot condone same sex relationships. My foot! What does this phrase mean anyway? Do you really think that if Malawi de-criminalizes being gay then some people who were gay will become gay? They will always be there whether it is legal or illegal. Do you really think hays will suddenly change their sexual orientation because they have been arrested? As a heterosexual, i am not really concerned about what sexuality choice the other person has taken. If they chose to be gay, I will not a rest them. Let it be between them and their God. Their being gay is not going to affect my life negatively in any way. It is true that Malawi should take a stand about the issue of gays.

  12. Bwampini says:

    Being poor will make us decriminalisation of love-making with animals like dogs etc in the nearing future. Money can create everything. If you say NO to what money wants u 2 follow, the world heaps you problems

  13. Gomezg says:

    Koma ine sindimanvetsa akamati ma gay akufunika uphungu wapadera wa hiv and aids, kodi mesa uthenga wa edzi ukamalengezedwa umapita kwa aliyese posatengera kuti amagonana bwanji?

  14. Inu opembedza m’bona musamare Mulungu akhoza kukukwapulani lero lomwe musamakhale ngati munazilenga nokha osamasewera ndi YEHAVA.

Chomvetsa chisoni nchoti anthu onse akumenyelera ufulu wamagay anabadwira kwa mamuna ndi nkazi dziko laMulungu kopanda global fund apeza njira zina zothandizira kuthetsa HIV. Nkadzaona mamuna atabereka mwana kulabour ward nzavomera kuti homosexuality is God’s plan apo bi magay akagwere uko kuzithaphwi.Palibe anabadwa ndi u gay koma psychological thinking.Mufufuze kuti inayamba bwanji and the reasons behind it AMalawi osamangotsatira nzopusa zomwe

  16. But why should we lose our national identity of a god-fearing nation to mere lustful sodomy behaviours and money???

  17. ğyu says:

    Abale isn’t patriotism being misused in this article? what exactly is patriotism and how do the minister’s statements become reverse patriotism? tatambasulani pamenepa Mr muckraker?

  18. Kenkkk says:

    The gays aids disease is no different from other peoples’ aids disease, so there is no need for them to have a special pot of money to treat their aids disease. All people gays or not who have the aids disease should go to hospital, basi, palibe zosankana.

    If the money is for promoting safe sex, again the same message applies to everyone, gay or not. After all the govt doesn’t recognise the existence of gays, they are still illegal!!! So how do you get money for an illegal or banned activity?

    What we don’t want is the govt starting to steal aids money through the back door of the ministry of health. We are watching you!!!!.

  19. Achimidzimidzi says:

    In this case government can be forced to legalize homosexuality, so that the sexually challenged people come out in the open and be assisted accordingly.

    However, its not good to justify pervasion in the name of human rights. Because if someone rude will marry a goat or dog it be his rights.

    Mind you, our men are excessively abusive and one day you find that you are three wives but second wife is your own dog and third wife is you house maid.

    What a pollution! Big corruption of man kind.

  20. Mauricio says:

    You seem to be confused between acknowledging the existence of homosexuals and criminalisation of the homosexuals. No one has denied there are such confused people in Malawi. It’s like chamba smokers: We acknowledge they exist but it remains a crime to be found smoking it.

  21. Hoveliwa says:

    The God’s creation can’t be faulted. Procreation is the catchword. Think how ur dick is dovetelled and how lady’s organ is designed not otherwise. Don’t entice me with ur alien culture. Kagwere uko. Unabwadwira from ANUS. Mbuzi

  22. We don’t need dirty money in our country, this country is god’s fearing nation you devils please leave this nation in peace.

  23. Chakumudzi says:

    Tingozisiya mmanja mwa chauta ndi amene adzaweluze

  24. EYE WITNESSES says:

    Dicksonnyirenda ndiwe Galu wotheratu. Malawi is not God fearing nation but the Majority of Malawians are Christians who fear God. Religion is not about God but believing in what one believes to be his/her savoir. So the constitution of Malawi offers freedom of Religion. Me as a sena ma sevoir is M’bona period and I cant be persecuted. The same applies to those that believe in other savoirs and those that are non believers. Nde enanu musamatisokose ndizokuti Malawi is a God fearing nation. Bring other facts against the gays not religion.

    1. Achimidzimidzi says:

      Big misunderstanding, whether M’bona is your savior or you take snakes as your savior that is your god because you worship M’bona. So as a matter of correction Malawi is a god fearing nation, in this case we are referring to your M’bona or snake.
      Unless M’bona doesn’t have powers to be called god, then am also wrong.

      Mind you constitution is not a nation, its a mere document of laws. Nation refers to people.

  25. The Stand is: Homosexuality is a CRIME in Malawi..PERIOD.I dont know wat else to say.

  26. Malawi is a God fearing country and it is an abombination to God by seeing his holy people putting themselves into this stupid issues. God wasn’t became madness even a single day by creating a man as well as a woman by giving the opposite sex. Let God be God for evermore. In Jesus name a men.

  27. Ahlomwe Ahlomwe says:

    Govt of contradictions. That’s what happens when you hire a govt through the backdoor.
