Chakwera, Chilima talk of unity in Tonse Alliance: Upbeat to win Malawi presidential re-run

State Vice President Saulos Chilima who is the runningmate for MCP’s Lazarus Chakwera in the forthcoming fresh election, has said that Tonse Alliance, which has been formed by nine parties will ensure to pull in one direction and not breed confusionists.

Tonse Alliance: This dream of a new Malawi is what binds us together

Chilima, who alongside Chakwera successfully petitioned the High Court of Malawi sitting as the Constitutional Court to nullify last year’s election,  was speaking at a breakfast and prayers event in Lilongwe on Thursday.

He expressed confidence that the alliance will win the election and will ensure that  they continue working together.

“We are winning the fresh elections clearly,” said Chilima.

“We have a task to rescontruct this country and we are ready to serve the people ably,” he said.

In his remarks, Tonse Alliance leader Chakwera,  who quit the pulpit as head of Malawi Assemblies of God in 2013 to join frontline politics,  hinted that the prayers were meant for the clergy to pray for them before they begin campaigning.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) launched an official campaign on Saturday last week.

Chakwera maintains that God has given Malawians the fresh election to restore every voter’s power to bring change and enjoy their rights.

He said unity is paramount to achieve the goals.

“We have to understand that leaders have been at the center stage dividing Malawians, we have had  different blue prints but  the country has failed to achieve it because we lack unity,” he said.

The opposition alliance is comprised of nine political parties, including People’s Party of the country’s ex-president, Joyce Banda (2012-2014).

The alliance’s other parties include the Freedom Party, Malawi Forum for Unity and Development (Mafunde), People’s Progressive Movement (PPM), Umodzi Party, Alliance for Democracy (Aford) and People’s Transformation (Petra).

Joyce Banda a cashgate thief, a woman who made a whole executive Jet disappear without trace. Callista Chinombo a thief and Hule who raided Ndata farms while her purported husband lied motionless in cardiac arrest. Chilima a backstabbing womaniser sakhwi. Chakwera Ottawa nkachisi,an alligator at the head of the most brutal party Malawi has ever seen. Mtambo a terrorist who has unleashed violence for a year in the name of demonstrations. What a union of zinyau. You will be unmasked at the ballot. To hell with this alliance!!!

This Duo looks promising. Seems like they can take Malawi to different level. Its really important for Chilima to realize that a Vice President does not have the same powers as the President. The President is a step or two above. So Should this ticket win the rerun, Please Bwana Chilima make sure u stay in ur lane. We don’t want confusions. Do not try to outshine the President. Look at and borrow a leaf from the USA. Mike Pence is way smarter than Trump. He is a very good public speaker and can make a better president than the… Read more »

I feel sorry for Cilima
I don’t understand to be vice all the time. Should chakwera win which I doubt,he will be on the throne for 10years. So Cilima will be on the carrier for another ten years. He will be 57 sorry brazi.
Cilima has fooled his supporters. I wish he stood by himself or with Chikomeni.
MANGANYA and Mia out? Very bad .

Who is a running-mate between Chakwela and Chilima? My question may seem abnormal but it is very important. Truth will be known through actions between the two. How can someone with experience be a vice president to someone without experience in running government? Very funny!!!!!
