Chiefs mobilised to castigate Chakwera: Claim calling Mutharika failure is treasonous

Malawi government on Saturday mobilised and financed the chiefs to dress down leader of Opposition in Parliament Lazarus Chakwera, over his remarks suggesting that President Peter Mutharika and Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) had failed.

Kaomba: Chakwera should have ab audience with Mutharika than washing dirty linen in public

Chakwera, who is also Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president, said recently Mutharika has failed Malawians because for, among others, failing to live a modest lifestyle; failing to make Malawi a secure place for investment; failing to lure donors.

But the chiefs adding their voice to the chorus of attacks against the leader of Opposition started by Malawi government, the State House and the DPP gurus,.

According to the chiefs what Chakwera in his frank talk about Mutharika’s failed leadership  was treasonous.

“What Chakwera did was treasonous but our President is a democrat that is why Chakwera is not arrested,” said Chewa Paramount Chief Lundu.

Lundu said according to the chiefs act: “We serve Government of the day. Meaning we can’t stay put while our leader is being castigated.”

But Chakwera  is defiant that he sticks to what he said that fighting worsening corruption, in the country would require “the kind of integrity of leadership that Mutharika and his cronies clearly do not have.”

Lundu said it was wrong for the leader of opposition to describe the head of state as a failure.

Senior Chief Kaomba of Kasungu said Processor Chakwera should be booking appointment with the President and discuss national issues than communicating through the press.

Some of the chiefs who were present during the news conference include; Nthondo, Tsabango, Dzoole, Lukwa, Mwase, Kalonga, Dambe, Kaomba, Kasakula, Chauma, Chapananga, and Khombedza.

It’s a known fact that these so-called chiefs are being sponsored by DPP. The press conference itself was well funded by DPP. U think we don’t know. Some of those chiefs are my relations and they confirmed to have been approached and sent by DPP after being given tax payers money.

Pointing out the problems of the government is treasonous? l thought these chiefs are educated? Which constitution says the leader of opposition has to seek approval of the chiefs in order to point out the wrongs of the government. What kind of democracy seeks the approval of the chiefs on the correct or respectful language to use, and who said Lundu is a chewa chief? How can he be a chewa chief when he is patron for the mang’anja grouping? Finally, chakwera is not a spokesperson of the chewa tribe or any tribe, he is the leader of opposition parties… Read more »

So pathetic and cheapening to see the whole professor who lived in the USA for four decades but can behave worse than Muluzi. We thought .net would bring maturity into malawian politics.

This foolish behavior of the so called chief is fast making them irrelevant and redundant in our society. I prophesy that a government is coming that will get rid of chiefs in our midst.
