MCP supporters in Kasungu as Chakwera addressed them

Chakwera was speaking in Kasungu when he addressed a political rally at Mziza Headquarters in the area of Traditional Authority Njombwa.

Chakwera said it is unfortunate that chiefs are being used as political pawns by  the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)

He said: “Chiefs are custodians of our respective cultures. They play a significant role in our lives as such they deserve utmost respect.”.

Chakwera added: “We will ensure that chiefs are not being abused like the case at the moment.”

Area in the day, Chakwera attended the fundraising event which took place at Mziza CCAP Church.

During the event, Chakwera donated twenty bags of cement and some cash.

He blamed oDPP-led government for the socio-economic woes facing the country.

The MCP president said the present leadership lacks a vision to move Malawians out of problems such as drug shortages, lack of maize in Admarc markets and dwindling education standards.

He maintained his accusations that the leaders are busy enriching themselves through corrupt means and are failing to fight corruption because “they themselves are thieves and corrupt”.

Chiefs are adults and presumed to be wise. If they are manipulatable then they shouldn’t be chiefs in the first place. Honourable even if your intentions are noble, how do you plan giving back their dignity……what does that even mean to the chiefs. These chiefs have gone far down the hole that they wouldn’t know how to get out even if you you lower your helping hand to lift them up from the hole. They’re so used to being pampered by politicians in exchange for votes. Chieftaincy has been commoditised and therefore has become a perk.

Chakwera,restoration of Chiefs’ dignity is not a national priority.What an utter fool? People in Malawi are lacking decent medical facilities,jobs,electricity infrustructures,crimes are intoralably high,tribalism at its zenith since independence some 50 years ago and foolishly you do not talk about it because it is the dreaded Malawi Confusionist Party herein after,the MCP which created this monstrous system in order to suppress the minority societies of Malawi.Afterall,Chiefs have trivial consequences as far as peoples’ lives are concerned.How would you hit at corrupt and thieves while yourself is corrupt and a thief? Where did you get the funds to build your bungalow… Read more »

Please don’t bring chiefs close to the government, these are the people who confuse the running of the government in this country. Tell chiefs to distance themselves from politics otherwise our country is no more interested in these stupid people who are called chiefs.

If he failed to build a school while being Astor of assemblies, if he failed to make it well established, what can he do for the nation. It is not memorisng the chapter and verses in the bible. Some people think Lazarus build Shealfer, no it was done by the American pastor and there was no any contribution he made. This is not about believing in miracles pastor, and your fellow miracle believers who think you can reform a miracle in Malawi. One thing those, those who desert the altar where they made a convenant with The Most High God… Read more »
