Chakwera finally moves to Kamuzu Palace 

Kamuzu Palace

President Lazarus Chakwera has now moved into a 300-room Kamuzu Palace, the official residence of the Malawi Head of State.

His Special Assistant, Sean Kampondeni, has confirmed the development.

The delay to occupy Plot Number One was caused by renovations that were being undertaken at Kamuzu Palace.

His moving to Kamuzu Palace comes a month after his election.

Since his election as President of the country, Chakwera had been operating from his private residence in Lilongwe’s Area 6.

The Persian-style brick-built palace, dominating a hill above Lilongwe, is part of a 200-acre estate which includes a school and a supermarket. It was built in 1975 by former President for Life Hastings Kamuzu Banda, known for his luxurious tastes, but he stayed there only briefly.

Kamuzu’s successor, Bakili Muluzi, himself criticised for over-spending, refused to occupy the palatial residence , calling it an “obscene extravagance”, and lived in Blantyre.

The State House then was housing Parliament until Bingu wa Mutharika had moved in and later Joyce Banda who renamed it Kamuzu Palace and Peter Mutharika continued to live in it until he was evicted by Malawian voters in the fresh presidential elections.

Landlocked Malawi is one of the world’s poorest nations; most of its 18 million people live on less than $1 a day.

Abusa Ayala mphasa ku state House as he continues to be in a state of topsy-turvy. Tulo too much Chakwera. When shall he tell us where to buy the universally subsidized fertilizer? When shall he tell us where to line-up for the 1 million jobs? When shall our grannies begin to get the K15,000.00 per month? When shall we start eating three times? Where are the bullet trains? When shall the salary for civil servants be raised?

This is just a waste of resources. Why move into a 300 room mansion? For what?I know previous Presidents did the same thing. But is it really necessary? What are we (as a Nation) benefiting or achieving by housing the State President in a 300 room Mansion? Please turn this building into something else. It could be a Hospital, Presidential Hotel, Military and Govt offices or University. No single family needs to live in this Mansion.

That’s why people will always fight for this position and sooner or later him Chakwera and his vice will start fighting because Chilima is looking forward to occupy this beautiful mansion. Remember I wrote on this same page that as long as Chakwera and Chilima are from different political stages oneday they will differ and this will cause them to easily split. Mostly alliances politically does not work positively any mistake done from any side will can cause conflicts. This I write on this day the 1st of July 2020 and give it time of 6 months from now things… Read more »

Jamax don’t make me laugh! Now you have become a prophet, you can even prophesy? Kikkkkkk looks like you are not aware that these 2Cs are for real! You sound two sides of life, you sound like an idiot! By the way, when did you started recognise Chakwera as a leader in this Country? Oh come on! Is it not the same Jonah you insulted here in the name of being you as a Christian? And again your prophecy is rebuked by those who believe in oneness! To hell with you! I told you that I will be following you!

Can you imagine? What is wrong with Chakwera to go and stay in that House? After all it was built by Kamuzu.

Beautiful that Dr Chakwera is in the Hastings Kamuzu Banda Palace (the HASKABA PALACE) Whatever Bakili might have said about the palace he is yet to free himself from the corruption millstone around his neck. His appetite for monies is a story from the sixties

Residential facilities for Malawi presidents should be reduced to one and others be changed to either higher learning institutions or hospitality facilities.

Let me correct you Paul Chamdimba Malawi is not the poorest country. Look at how much Chisale stole from Malawians. The search is not done yet. We are yet to discover more from these DPP thieves.
