Chakwera: Mutharika’s helter-skelter pursuits not inspiring to the nation

Chakwera said Muntharika speech was only descriptive without its prescription, as only telling problems without solutions, a thing he says leaves Malawians with alot of questions on how the outlined problems will be solved.

“One of the things you have to bear in mind is that the President has acknowledged that we are still in a bad shape as a nation,” said Chakwera.

He noted that the narrative has not changed for the past two years.

Chakwera said Mutharika did not put convincing remedies on the table and therefore his speech was empty.

He gave an example on what Muntharika said that his government is concerned with the continuous ill treatment of elderly people, the  killings and abductions of people living with albinism but in his address he did not provide solutions or any message of hope on what his government is doing or will do to end the malpractice.

Chakwera said what Muntharika has done is a repetition of his speeches and recycling of issues .

“All I see is the  description of ailments of this country but there is a little prescription,” said MCP president.

The leader of the opposition maintained that ubetween the promises of the President and the dreams of Malawians, he chooses the dreams of Malawians.

Dream with Malawians

“I choose to dream with Malawians of a presidency for the people, not for the government. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country where farmers make more money from their crops than traders. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country where government salaries are paid punctually by the order of a system, not tardily by the orders of a President. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country whose cities have tarred roads and landscaped sidewalks, not dirty roads, potholes, and bushes.

“I choose to dream with Malawians of a country whose cities are secure by night and clean by day, not littered by day and feared by night. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country in which the power of the sun and wind are harnessed through technology to extend the power grid to every Malawian home by 2064.

“I choose to dream with Malawians of a country in which handouts for votes are illegal. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country in which there is no State broadcaster to poison Malawians with propaganda. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country in which mechanisms of governance credibility, development equality and democracy security are guaranteed by the Constitution. I choose to dream with Malawians of a country in which foreign aid for the government is a memory, employment for young people is a [not] luxury, prosperity for all is a destiny, and security for communities is a reality…”

This is easy to say. But Chakwera does not have ideas on how to get there. Read


English must be spoken like it is: English. And thats inclusive of pronunciation, tone and so forth. Its not Yoruba, Chewa or some languauge called Lhomwe! Chakwera is one fellow who knows when to speak in English and when to speak in Chewa. Hes so eloquent in the language he opts to use, and there are many such languages. Chakwera ndikawawa!


Mutharika’s brain is full of rusting that’s why he is dreaming till now instead of fulfilling some aspects was promised before.shame on dis government full of asleep people


Tazaro kwake ndikutsutsa chilichonse ngati simkudziwa amalawi. Even boma lichite chanzeru kwa lazaro ndi mbola. I dont trust this guy.


Mau a Mulungu amati okumba dzenje agwelamo yekha, ogubuduza mwala umpwinja yekha komanso oboola khoma njoka imuluma yekha. Miyambo 26:2 ndi mulaliki 10:8. Zikomo kwambiri achimwene Lazalo. Gudu show. We are watching


Sometimes quietness when hunting helps to catch the hunted unaware, he did better not to mention the resolution because some of you are still doing campaign. Its not surprising that you will lack the plan to disturb the system to achievement.

Bravo mr president don’t let them know because they are also the ones which will run to donors to block your way to aid with envious stipulations.


Mr Leader of Opposition don’t think that you can fool Malawians with those rhetoric . Those are dreams tell us the realities you have done.Any level headed Malawian can not be moved by such utterances.


Chakwera is better


To show that the speech was empty thats why his trusted minster was sleeping while he was addressing the nation


Ku parliamentko ulendo uno mumuchite impeach peter, a malawi tasauka ife, tili pa mavuto olapisa. President opanda chisoni ngati uyu sizinachitikeponso dziko la pansi pano. President amayenela kuonesetsa kuti anthu ake akudya bwino ndipo mitengo ya zinthu zofunikira monga…chakudya, madzi, magesi zikhale zotchipa. Boma limayenela kuchita subsdies zinthu ngati zimenezi kuti anthu azikhala ndi moyo wa thanzi. Chonde ma mp a opposition gwilanani manja munchotse munthu osaganizila anzakeyu . . .
