Chakwera demands opportunities for every Malawian, denouce tribalism

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera who is also Leader of Opposition in parliament on Sunday took a swipe at government for peacticisng regionalistic, nepostim tendencies, saying he does not believe in tribalism himself.

Chakwera: I don’t believe in tribalism

“I don’t believe in Kusankha Mitundu [tribalism], no! We are all Malawians and let’s live in harmony like Malawians,” said Chakwera on Sunday at a poltiical rally he addressed in Ncheu.

“ Let’s respect each other and love each other. It’s not about where you come from or whether you’re a man or a woman. We are all Malawians, and let’s develop this country,” Chakwera told a mammoth crowd.

“If one section of society is being segregared, things cannot work. Democrcay should be manifested in how we treat each other as a people who belong together,” Chakwera said.

During the rally attended by the party’s Members of Parliament (MPs) and the National Executive Committee, the pastor-turned-politician said it was disheartening to see people of the same tribe dominating key positions in the current government.

He said it was heart-rending that the DPP led government was failing to tarmac the Tsangano Road in the district as a result of sheer regionalist grounds.

“The Tsangano road needs to be upgraded because this is a rich agricultural area. We need companies that can process our produce here so that we stop relying on imports,” said Chakwera.

On industrialization, Chakwera accused Government for its failure to add value to tomato and Irish potatoes.

“Processing these things can help improve the economy of this country by among other things creating jobs for our youths. We can add value to our produce, a thing that can subsequently result in farmers earning more from their labour,” he said.

Chakwera  lamented lack of proper mechanism to ensure farmers in the country have access to organised markets for their produce.

Olo pagulu nditha kuloza ndipo nditapatsidwa mwai nditha kugwila kuti president wanga ndi uyu. 2019 ikuchedwa bwanji. I cant compare Chakwera with uthers. My prayer: MCP musalole ena kukuyambanitsani. You are the hope of Malawi.

The High Priest Chakwera,when did you know that there is tribalism in Malawi? And what prompted you to denounce the evil incarnate today? For your information,this animal tribalism started soon after the Cabinet Crisis on the 9th Sept.1964 hitherto.Chakwera,as the former man of God,you have to say the truth that this is part of 2019 campaign to the Northerners whom had suffered the most in 32 years your obnoxious MCP had been in power.Honestly,the people of the North will never forget the MCP’s intentional atrocities against the Northerners come hell come high water!!!!!

Chakwera was not in politics that time but Dausi was, Ntaba too so if you say something that happened before Chakwera joined politics then ironically you are referring to people who were in MCP then but are in DPP today . Now you can’t cheat us northerners MCP has new people and all bad and old recycled politicians are in DPP and other parties.

Dr Chakwera, what is the best calling in life? Calling to be a man of God or calling to be a politician? At first, were you really called to serve God or you were seeking fortune? If you were indeed called as man of God you would not dump the divine service for dishonest and cheap politics. You have lost charisma and respect you used to have as a reverend. You are just greedy.

wasting time and whatever the case Kaliwo will never sell MCP like what UDF did to DPP.
Atupere and his father Bakili sold UDF in order to run away from MILANDU YA KU COURT.
This time no disks are heard from Bakili. WALEMBA mmadzi KALIWO.VIPHWENENE IFE TOTO.

It is confusing to see Kamuzu’s head as a party President on the cloth. I am wondering Chakwera is hiding behind the dead.
