Army moves in to guard Chakwera the president-elect: New dawn rises over Malawi

Malawi Defence Force (MDC) has deployed soldiers to guard Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Rev Dr Lazarus Chakwera’s according him full presidential protocol including an aide-de-camp as he is set to be declared winner in Tuesday’s election.

Malawi army has new commander-in-chief Chakwera 

Chakwera, who led the opposition Tonse Alliance, is expected to step up and offer a new and more responsive style of leadership.

The MCP leader is destined for the State House after scooping 60.3 percent of the votes defeating the incumbent.

Political analys hoped Chakwera would mend the country’s failing economy.

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world as 74 percent of the population here lives on less than 1.25 dollars a day, and nearly one in 10 children die before their fifth birthday.

The rising cost of basic commodities has added to these woes and the country is also experiencing shortages of necessities such as sugar and bread.

Voters in the southern African country went to the polls on 23 June for the second time in 13 months after the Constitutional Court scrapped a presidential election over alleged fraud.

A new dawn has risen over Malawi, it offers the country an opportunity for a fresh start.

It is sad that up to now, some are still attacking the lhomwe people, please you can say anything about the DPP, but some need to be schooled that some Lhomwe voted for Chakwera and some Chewas voted for DPP. We will not allow castigating of tribes. We were not voting for tribes but parties.

MCP Leader did not scoop 60.3 percent of votes. The truth is that a total of 8 Opposition parties came together as one party, against DPP and UDF, and added all their votes as one hence 60.3%. Its like Civo, Silver strikers and 20 small teams came together to form a team that can beat Manoma.

Why did DPP fail to form an alliance of 12 political parties? Because no one wants to work with alhomwe any more. You’re the most selfish and evil people in the world. Inu ndi ulendo waku Chichiri, Maula ndi Matchaya prisons basi. The game was the same, the difference is how it was played. It is not illegal to form an alliance. Viva Malawi!

MDF do not know their role, I mean MDF is only mandated to keep the president’s diary. Security is the responsibility of presidential guard which is department under police. Why is MDF breaking its constitional mandate
