Chakwera says DPP underutilised Chilima: Upbeat to win Malawi fresh elections

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful representing the opposition Tonse Alliance, Lazarus Chakwera  has urged Malawians to vote for him as the country next leader , saying election victory will inflict final blow on the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  which he said underutilized his running mate Salous Chilima as State Vice President.

Chakwera speaking at Njamba

Speaking to a multitude of people  at Njamba Freedom Park in Blantyre on Monday, Chakwera said Chilima is hard working and a star perfomer but was deliberately underutilized by the clueless DPP.

“DPP failed to properly utilize Chilima. He is is a performer and very capable person. In our government, he will be at the core in implementaion of our promises and champiom reforms in governemnt,” said Chakwera.

This was in direct reference to an announcement by Chilima earlier that the Tonse Alliance entails that apart from being Vice President he will also be the Treasury czar  and champion of reforms in  government.

Chakwera heeped priases on Chilima,  saying he has a track record of performance in the private sector and ably spearheaded public reforms as Veep before the role was taken way from him.

“Chilima has a track record of perfomance as well as energy and zeal to deliver,” said Chakwera.

He said Chilima will be at the forefront in implemeting promises such as one million jobs to the youth, cheap fertilizer at K4,495, loans to empower women and the youth, removal of connection fee on water and electricty, among others.

Chakwera blasted those in DPP-UDF alliance who are trying to pin him against Moslems,  saying he is religious tolerant as evidenced by the presence of Sikik Mia, a devout Moslem, as MCP deputy president.

Chakwera appointed Mia as his runningmate in the 2019 elections.

Speaking earlier, Mia said it is false that MCP will abolish Islam as his presence in the party signifies that the alliance is not for any tribe or religion.

“I am a muslim and a sheik and I am here in MCP as deputy president. I am fully behind Dr Chakwera and the alliance. I am not going anywhere. What others are spreading about abolishing Islam is false,” said Mia.

He said UDF leader Atupele Muluzi, who is DPP-UDF alliance runningmate, run away to China when Chakwera, DChilima and Malawians were fighting for electoral  justice at the courts.

UTM Vice President Micahel Usi advised alliance partners to remian united even after taking over government saying any divisions after victory will anger and disappoint Malawians.

Not that he was under utilized. The guy talks too much and within 5 mins he will have forgotten what he just said. Usually, empty tins make a lot of noise. He did that in the presence of APM who immediately saw his shortfalls and put him in his right place. Abusa is excited by the noise. By the time he will be realising the craftiness in Zeze, the damage will be difficult to reset.

Yes for sure was underutilized for sure.

Chilima knows and is connected to more mwenyes then APM is. I can vouch for it.

Look at the new hotel to come soon opposite X-Roads in LL we know how the deal conspired when Mr Chilima was at Airtel. All I have to say is BMW.

Chakwera is spot to say SKC was underutilized in the mafia dpp administration. Get what he is saying please not what your dull head is telling you

SKC is a trained economist and marketer. This is in addition to his PhD in Business Administration. The guy can add great value in improving public service delivery in the country! 😂😂
