Activist Simusokwe tells Cabinet ministers Chazama, Jappie that DPP is ‘a disappointment’

Rights activist and executive director for Karonga Youth for Justice and Development (KYJD), Steve Simusokwe, has reiterated that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is “a disappointment,” and has since called upon Malawians to sit back in reflection to elect transformative leaders in next year’s tripartite elections.

Simsokwe: Malawians should vote for a good government

Simsokwe made the call last Friday in Nyungwe, Karonga–at a funeral of  Speaker Richard Msowoya’s brother–where he spoke on behalf of the youths in the district.

A vocal Simusokwe told ministers Jappie Mhango and Cecilia Chazama that the DPP government has failed Malawians.

“Surely, this government has been a disappointment, especially to the people of the northern region. This region has been heavily sidelined by this government,” said Simusokwe.

He cited the quota system as one of the evils committed by the DPP government against the people of the region.

“The system is quite discriminatory. Come next year we will make sure we vote this nonsense out of government,” he said.

Simusokwe who became popular a few years back in making Paladin Africa Limited, miners of the Kayerekela Uranium Mine, over its failure to honour it’s social corporate responsibility said ministers from the north have not been helpful at all.

“Once they are elected they completely forget about their roots. They no longer speak for us. It is very sad,” said Simusokwe.

Mhango and Chazama kept on looking down as Simusokwe spoke, and left in haste after the ceremony.

Earlier, Simusokwe condemned the Msowoya family for not “fully” recognizing the presence of main opposition leader, Lazarus Chakwera.

Chakwera was not given a chance to eulogize Msowoya’s brother, but nevertheless, Simusokwe commended Chakwera for attending the funeral.

Kikikikiki. Activist? Who trains them? Every Jim & jack can just wake up and say am activist. Woo, seems the northern part of the country is full of activists. After the quota system everyone has turned into an activist. This activist is ungrateful man, Karonga has seen development, all you see is quota system. Even before quota system people used to fake districts of origin. I remember during Kamuzu some students were being sent back home from other schools, I witnessed it at a mission school. These gates started a long time ago, may be we missed the name, it… Read more »

Hahahaha akuti akufuna kutchuka basi……………atumbuka opusa. Every mtumbu is now an activist. Let 2019 come faster and they will know that in democratic world, the majority rules. All the mtumbus were quiet from 2012 to 2014 because they were busy eating and robbing us. Even at the climax of the cashgate, the mtumbus couldn’t condemn it cause they had so much in their mouth chewing. If Mutharika were one of mtumbus, they wouldn’t have any problem with him. They are regional, tribal and nepotistic. They have a problem with Mutharika because he is from the southern region, especially coming from… Read more »

EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES SHOULD BE EARNED BASED ON EQUAL PROVISIONS – QUOTA SYSTEM IS NEPOTISTIC, IF YOU WANT TO GO UNIVERSITY THEN YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO WORK HARD.

Stupid activist. Why talk politics at a funeral? By the way, how is Simukowe a rights activist when he does not understand the concept of ‘equal distribution of public resources.’

Is there equal distribution of resources? may be there is that “concept of equal distribution of public resources” but certainly not in Malawi. It will take your sober and objective mind to understand that.

Richard Msowoya is a person you can not trust. He always capitalised on any unfortunate event to attain his goals. He will use Northerners as ladders to reach to his higher points. Immediately he gets there he throws the ladders down so that those who helped him get that high do not come close to him. This time he used his brothers solemn event (death) to campaign for his political survival.
