Aford-Chihana hits at bankruptcy of leadership in the fight against corruption

Alliance for Democracy (AFORD) party led by Enock Chihana has  taken a swipe at the Peter Mutharika led administration for failing to tackle corruption decisively.

The criticism has been made by first  Vice President Reverend Precious Chisi days after the country’s vice president Saulos Chilima took a swipe at his own government when he presided over a Roman Catholic Church ceremony in Ntchisi, a move that has further divided the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

The Aford veep was speaking when he was receiving Samson Ben Bato who is a shadow legislator for Ndirande Malabada in a move which is likely to make AFORD have representation countrywide other than its erstwhile northern region stronghold.

“AFORD is the only party in the country which is clean and corrupt free which if elected into government in 2019 will rid this country of corruption which is retarding meaningful development,” said Chisi.

He further said AFORD is the only clean party in the country which Malawians can join which can redeem this country from the economic turmoil and crisis if people can move together with the party.

“Come 2019 we are geared to end rampant corruption and put an end to the quota system of selecting students to public universities and we will allow every student to be selected on merit. We will also make sure that the country should eradicate power blackouts and shortage of medical drugs in the country’s hospitals,” said Chisi.

On his part the shadow legislator for Ndirande Malabada said he knows AFORD as a party and its leadership of Enoch Chihana was duly elected by a lawful convention and not the other camp led by Frank Mwenifumbo which he said  wanted to highjack the process.

“As far as I know there are no divisions in AFORD led by Chihana. The other so called camp is not recognized even by the party’s constitution because they absconded the lawful convention which was duly convened,” he said.

He said he is saddened by the country’s slow development progress and that it is high time the country elected AFORD so that the country can move forward.

We Malawians should learn to read or hear the message that our fellow Malawians are articulating as opposed to focusing on the person delivering the message. Do us on the content……if it is shallow then put your argument across but do not dismiss an otherwise good message by attacking the carrier.

Chihana and Mwenifumbo,what you should bear in mind is that,the spirits of Orton Chirwa,Kanyama Chiume,Dunduzu Chisiza,Yatuta Chisiza,Rose Chiwambo,Chakufwa Chihana,Lutengano Mwahimba and,many other patriots will haunt you for your opportunistic sellout.This gives ammunitions to the die-hard tribalists from the South and Central Malawi.This is not the time to fight for your own interests instead of fighting for millions of suffering Northerners and their brothers from the two Regions.This agrees with other Malawians that Northerners are not yet ready to lead the Nation if they can not lead their own Province.The Present political pandemonium in the North,is enhanced by power struggle within… Read more »

Mwenifumbo failed to change anything in people’s party, DPP, AFORD, which he once left and join other parties what new think can he bring from people’s party and DPP into AFORD? The only senior position he has held is youth director in DPP cadet


Mwenifumbo did not do any convention the man only appoint his leaders at his house area 49 . Yesterday we experienced another appointment of vice how can such big position be appointed instead of being competed at convention? Mwenifunbo is a joke

AFORD is one of the first parties I think its about time they are given chance. Their fight against one led govt was splendid. They can really do something


DPP has failed miserably and AFORD leader is correct corruption has worsen


This is very Ha ha ha from AFORD – Chihana. Late Chakufwa Chihana (mhsrp) promised to reveal corruption in UDF highest office and went to meet his maker before doing this. Baby Chihana should not waste space. We want to hear new agenda from AFORD – Mwenefumbo.


AFORD-Chihana you are the best experts in corruption. Your bribes failed to sway AFORD-Mwenifumbo.
