Callista says DPP thriving on stolen wealth: ‘Vote Chakwera to be president for better Malawi’

Former First Lady Callista Mutharika who is executive member of UTM Party has appealed to Malawians to vote for Malawi Congress Party (MCP) torchbearer Lazarous Chakwera, saying she left  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  after realising that the party is thriving on wealth stolen through corruption.

Callista wa Mutharika: DPP are thieves 
Vote Chakwera: Callista campaining on Friday with MCP torchbearer

Madam Mutharika made the remarks on Saturday at Mtakataka in Dedza where Vice President Salous Chilima. who is also runningmate to Chakwera, held a campaign rally.

” I have come here to urge you to vote for Dr Chakwera and the Tonse Alliance for a united Malawi and a better future. I left DPP because I realised there is too much corrutption in there. Wrongful enrichment has been institionalised in DPP government. Do not give them a chance,” pleaded Mutharika.

She said people should be aware that is the same ill-gotten wealth that DPP is now ditching out as cash handouts to people and chiefs to get votes.

“Those handouts being given to you and some chiefs are left overs from the millions of money they have accumulated through corruption. Just receive the money, its yours but vote for Chakwera,” she said.

Mutharika said Chakwera is a stable and mature leader with a clean record who will unite the country and fight corruption.

“Your vote is a weapon to change the course of Malawi. I took a personal risk and left all the wealth and presidge in DPP to help save Malawi,” said Mutharika.

She said the Malawi Enterprise Developemt Fund (MEDF) loans being touted by the DPP government are a campaign tool, saying MEDF has been there for many years but very few people have benefitted in the country.

Speaking earlier, Member of Parliament for Dedza South Patrick Bandawe said Chilima was a courageous and sefless leader who deserves respect.

Bandawe said Chilima and Chakwera fought galantly in the courts to seek justice for Malawians and won all the cases, something that was unthinkable before.

” You have shown that you are a courageous leader and you fought a good fight in the courts. You are also sefless leader for accepting to partner with Chakwera as runningmate. We all know that you are equally capable to lead this alliance but you allowed Dr Chakwera to lead,” said Bandawe.

He urged  people in his constituency and the whole country to vote for Dr Chakwera and the alliance for a better Malawi.

” In 2019 this constituency had 45,000 registered voters but only 32,000 voted. This time we will make sure everyone votes,” he said.

Before the Mtakataka rally, Chilima held 8 whistle stops campaign meetings in Salima including at Senga bay, Kamuzu road and Chipoka.

Politics based on personal grudges is not for the benefit of the nation. Madam Calister might be an eye witness of what she is claiming and actually a beneficiary of the same. Adyayidya and Malawians were actually complaining but she never stood up to defend Malawians as she claims today. Now that she didn’t sustain her position of influence due to personal and family differences, she pretends to have peoples interests at heart? If her claims are in good faith then let her first declare what she benefited. The Bible story of Zacheus is a lesson. He paid back 4x… Read more »

We said it before that the agenda of this woman is stealing to through bitching and halotry. We knew her since the late 1970s when she was a regular nocturnal passenger in her boss’s Nissan Cedrick. Since the she has never blinked. Pano akufuna amubere fake accent ex-reverend Lezala Nyolonyo. She knows exactly what the country went through with MCP. I tell you compatriots to ignore and shout: “Never Again.”

From the onset madam you told the nation that it’s time for young energetic youth to run the affairs of state and you championed the VP then. Now am baffled to hear you campaigning for am old wolf like yourself. Is it the the youth movement has been shelved or it was just a mkwatimbwi wokumudwa agenda. If Chakwera wins he may do a second term or hand over to Mia to think Mia is stupid remember the play you are the road we travel

The most unprincipled woman ever to walk on the surface of Malawi! you betrayed Malawians our Bingu was on good track and considering his people until the day he married you! We all remember your wedding when your choice of songs for the wedding including SHAURI YAKO which was played when your fellow JEZEBEL Joyce Banda was giving you wedding presents. Do you remember that? It was indeed Shauri yako for a lot of Malawinas and Bingu as you mislead Bingu losing direction making him to host KANDA BONGOMAN for State House parties which you danced and drank wine until… Read more »

Calista you said you want Chilima to be president when you were in DPP and today you say vote for Chakwela. No direction and this is how prostitutes behave. Chilima get advise from wise and respected individuls. She has caused your downfall. Vice to Vice of another one’s government. The biggest mistake Bingu did was to marry a prostitute like you. that is why Joyce Banda never agreed with Bingu on your marriage issue because she new you very well just as she is. Now you are back together. Atabwali sametana!!!!
