Chakwera vows to resign and let Chilima rule Malawi if he breaks law

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera who is  pairing with the country’s estranged Vice-President Saulos Chilima for opposition grouping of nine parries called Tonse Alliance has challenged Malawians that he will be ready to resign as their leader if successfully voted into power amid the presidential rerun, once caught breaking the supreme law, the Constitutions which he will take oath to defend.

Chakwera made the remarks on Tuesday 9 June, 2020 during a mega rally Tonse Alliance held at Maganga ground in Nkhata-Bay Central, Traditional Authority T/A Mkumbira saying he will be devoted to respecting the rule of law.

In his sentiments, Chakwera assured Malawians that his government will safeguard the Constitution of Malawi by making sure that no one infringes it upon his sworn in as the country’s state president since no one is above the law.

“Nobody should be above the law, that is the supreme law of the country so we must respect it thus I will make sure that we don’t abuse it. No body will be allowed to do that from my team.” He explained.

Chakwera then said that his government will use the Constitution of Malawi to safeguard it’s people’s livelihood so that good living standards should improve for everyone.

He said:” We want to respect our rule of law so that we protect the rights of people in the country.”

Delivering her speech, Joyce Banda who is the former Malawi’s state president claimed that the government should return all the funds which have been aided by various organizations to assist in the fight against the deadly Corona virus COVID-19 pandemic as they are not being used for the intended purpose.

Banda raised the concern as she alleged that there are no cases of COVID-19 yet in the country such that the government is only taking advantage of the outbreak for it’s political interest.

She said: “We are hearing news that there is Coronavirus outbreak in the world, we thank God for favoring our country as we don’t have it here, they are faking it.”

Tonse Alliance is holding political rallies across the country to sell their manifesto in an effort to usher their presidential candidate and running mate to form the next government amid the officially set June 23, 2020 Fresh Presidential Election FPE by the Parliament of late.

Chakwela ndimufiti
Kukana zodzasiya udindo zaka 5 zikatha
Akuwona ngati sadzalakwa
Udindo wake ochimwitsawu
Chakwela ndi chitsilu kale
ndiye akudziwonjezela UCHITSILU
Polonjeza zomwe sizingachitike
Chifukwa choufunitsitsa udindo

When Tambala wakuda akafinyidwa pakhosi mpeni Ukunoledwa . It squeals just like this. At this point Chakwera and Chilima will do anything, promise anything to gain power. Kugwada pansi, kugwila mbendela, Orton Chirwa Is the founder of Mcp.. kuyamwana matchabwada. Anything literally. Power hungry basi.

What Chakwera is saying is that SKC will still remain as VP in both of the terms if they succeed. Otherwise, aziyendera choti, ” Chikagwa nditola”. This is politics, u think Chakwera can leave that position, muiwale ndithu, noway he can do that. In Africa, it doesnt happen. Akunama amaneyu!!

Peter Mutharika can not waste time campaigning when he knows pretty well that he won the 2019 presidential election which was stolen from him by the corrupt Judges. He knows that he is going to win again without conducting rallies

Eya that’s a good question. Dpp and UDF are like Real Madrid in champions league. They know how to win. Strategy beats what Chakwera is doing that’s being amateur. Watch this space. Apm doesn’t have to do debates or run around. Have you ever seen an advert saying come buy a Ferrari? A Bugatti? Special
Offer? Strategy my friend

Genocide Malawi, Malawians are not happy with the current leadership which is surrounded by a batch of crooks both in Lilongwe and Blantyre.Its only God’s grace that Malawians are still alive otherwise we needed Federal government in this country. One unique article one should follow is that since the death of Dr Banda the country has been ruin by Alendo hence no body dares about the people of Malawi. Many have left the country but disturbed due to corona virus attack.
