Chakwera says relationship with Chilima will not be complicated

President Lazarus Chakwera has said his relationship with his deputy Saulos Chilima will not at any point be complicate, saying their main agenda is to reconstruct the country.

President Chakwera and Vice-President Chilima: No worries of complicated relationship

Chakwera’s Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leads the nine-party Tonse Alliance  led government while Chilima leads the UTM party the largest partner of the alliance.

Chilima is on record  has having hinted that the presidency of Tonse Alliance would be rotational among partner parties.

But Chakwera,  in an interview in Tiuzeni Zoona talk show on privately-owned Zodiak Broadcasting Station , said the candidacy in the next elections would be tackled “when we get to that bridge.”

He said the focus now should be how the country can clear the rubble left by past regimes.

Politician-cum-commentator Humphrey Mvula said it would be too early and a distraction to start speculating about whether Chakwera will be the presidential torchbearer again in the next elections or what will be next move for Chilima.

Their alliance looks more organized. Am sure they have already agreed on such issues. It was very critical to talk and agree about it. However, the problem would arise if either of them diverts from that agreement. It should be in black and white, definitely. Malawians will still be able then to know who is who. Simple. Some disgruntled people will try by all means to saw hatred between these people. Remember how together these people braved the embarrassment of sitting on the bench outside our courts. Together. Am sure they deeply and soberly talked about this president issue. If… Read more »

The relationship btwn President Chakwera and his Vice Dr Chilima holds the tonse alliance. Any friction btwn the two can prove to be futile. It is my prayer that the two remain remain royal to the pact conditions for Malawians to trust them beyond. Malawi the warm heart of Africa 🌍. God bless.

Bwana Chakwera. Already signs are for all to see that the relationship is very complicated. And the by-election in Benghazi will open up the wounds for all of us to see. As will the other by-elections which will see PP loosing top leaders. Wait and see.

Even before the signing of the coalition btwn MCP and UTM people had to talk according to what they were thinking, so today . Even chilima was asked who was going to be the torch bearer of the tonse alliance? His response was whether it be me or chakwera believe in us . The same as this they knows what is going to happen after this five years term. Why rushing things journalists

The Tiuzeni zoona program on Zodiak Radio Station, if am not wrong is done by Daniel Mababa, and mostly it is done through a phone call. I have been following this program when I was home in Malawi and here as well using online listening, this program is none other trash to the people who has the truth. Because the program requests the truth but it doesn’t have timing. I’m saying this because it looks like the program that needs those who are frustrated with circumstances not those who have plans in life more over to the President who have… Read more »

Wawa, koma ndiye kukwiya komeneko? See, Journalism in this country is based on thinking not reasoning! What is happening in this country is that, we don’t see the change but other countries are managing to see and they are asking themselves if they can be able to be like Malawians. Now here we are some one bringing useless division in the name of Tiuzeni zoona!afuna aliyese aziganiza ngati mmene iyo amaganizira.

The problem is the President instead of working in the office trying to sort out a horde of problems dogging this country. He is busy going on a private radio to do a PR stunt. He is no longer in the opposition now. Tell him to find something better to do with his time. The problem is that he has never done any dirty work in the offices like his friend Chilima. This is time for working rather than running around doing media briefings for nothing. Let’s see if he is capable of working by finding solutions to problems of… Read more »

Are you joking or what. He should have said I am busy. I do not have time for that. It just shows that he has too much time in his hands which he does not know what to do with. Did he address any pertinent issue concerning this nation during the interview if you say there was a need for him to do that. He is talking too much. He should just shut up and do his job.

You must be joking right. He could have said no. The problem is that he talks too much and has a lot of time in his hands. He should focus on resolving the problems of this country.

That is what Mutharika’s supporters used to say in regard to Chilima. By the time they realised they had tamed a vicious snake, it was too late. If Chakwera does not address this issue from the beginning, you will see what is going to happen. Chilima is called a vicious snake for a good reason. Burying your head in the sand will not resolve this existential issue.

Nobody is forced to listen to the programme even you Kaitano. People do it at their own choice. By the way tiyeni tidzingolemba mu chichewa mmalo molemba chingerezi chothyoka. Mulekeni Daniel agwire ntchito yake ya utolankhani. Kaya ndinu a Young Pioneer Bola mungokhala chete because you are writing trash, idiot.

Just shows you that the president does not make decisions based on principle but rather than based on the circumstances which is why he is always flip flopping from one goal post to the other. His party’s constitution says that you can only be party president for 2 five year terms. Here he is talking about the people who will bend the constitution to suit his ambitions. Chilima is just an employee for the president to fulfill his desires nothing else.

Your argument on MCP constitution on term president is from uninformed position

Can you tell us your informed position. You seem to know more than me. Even if the constitution says he can stand again. He should have stated it openly that he is going to stand again. The problem of playing hide and seek with other people’s lives. He thinks that because Chilima managed to humble himself for the sake of this country then he is stupid to the extent that he can stand again without consideration for his sacrifices. This is the same culture we see even in offices people think that because you give others a chance then you… Read more »

Tell us your informed position. You seem to be know. Even if the constitution allows him to stand again in 2024. He should have come out clear that he is or isn’t going to stand. What is wrong with that. The problem is that he prefers to take positions based on circumstances. And he thinks that because Chilima allowed him to lead the coalition for the sake of this country he is stupid and does not deserve the position himself. This is what happens even in offices people think that because you humble enough to let others be in front… Read more »
