Chakwera goes off duty  at presidential holiday resort Chikoko Bay

President Lazarus Chakwera is this week expected to go on three-day off-duty   retreat at official presidential holiday resort Chikoko Bay in Mangochi to have a rest from the hectic presidential duties.

Chakwera and First Lady off to a retreat

State House director of communication and executive assistant to the President, Sean Kampondeni, has said President Chakwera and First Lady Monica, will spend the three days at Chikoko Bay.

Kampondeni said Chakwera deserves the rest, saying it has been a hectic work since he assumed presidential powers five months ago.

By implication vice-president Saulos Chilima is acting president.

He also said the Weekly Briefs will take a break for Christmas holiday.

Kampondeni said the final brief before the holiday will be on December 14 and will return on January 11, 2021.

He said the briefs will now come monthly next year and will be centred on the achievements of cabinet ministers.

Are you running away from the jerusalem embassy mess Mr Lazaro? Your arrogance on jerusalem issue will cost Malawians lives. Are you also aware that government payments have stopped because IFMIS is down? And for the past 5 months, your government has not delivered anything tangible apart from arresting innocent Lomwe people. Are your tired ministers awake? Which practical strategies have you put in place to achieve the 1 million jobs in this year? And with all these hot issues on the table how can you afford to take a nap in the name of a holiday? By the way,… Read more »

Education and MANEB mess. AIP fertilizer mess. Foreign Affairs with SA mess. Bushiri mess. 1 million jobs mess. Truck drivers mess. Gender women mess. Loan mess. Covid-19 mess. Ndiye ukupita ku holiday kukatani iwe Chakwera? Do you even qualify for a holiday after working for 5 months only? Kuyendetsa boma tu siphada. Being a president of the assemblies of God is different from being a state president.

A break from what? What has he done? Nothing tangible, nothing of note. Trash Bolanso joyce Banda. The bar is too low.

This is very good that him as a human being like anybody else needs that break BUT the most important thing is that we are being told. Don’t be like the previous leaders that thought that when they say that they have gone for a weekend, then it would look like they’re weak yet they’re humans. So well done Mr President you deserve time off.

Good Chicobay Statehouse is being utilized by the President BUT the Property should be sold along with the State House in Mzuzu and Zomba for the amount of time they are used and overall expenses to keep them. Put the money to better use in future stay at a nice Lodge or Hotel Resort. Malawi does not need 5 Statehouses for such a small geographical country.

I am very MCP, therefore Laz is my party as well as my country president. Koma ndiye watopa akanali mu gear one. Honestly, atati asiye u president lero, the few things I can say my president wapangapo sindingalodze apart from giving the nation good weekly speeches.
I hope akabweralo, it will be more fire. Project after project, the aged will start receiving the monthly little thing, the reduced passport fee for all NOT for only truck drivers since amayi a geni amapitanso kunja and pay tax pa border,driving licence issue etc

What a mess.

No one asked for weekly briefs,some of us said it that for one thing they are useless for another a waste of time,now we know they are exhausting.

Going on holiday after working for less than a year.

Awatu,if there was no COVID19 he would have got abroad for his holiday.

I will say it again he is material for president.

I will not be surprised to hear he went to meet and hide or strategise with Bushiri.
