Chilima absence raises eyebrows as leaders congratulate Chakwera at his house

Eyebrows have been raised on social media over the absence of State Vice President Salous Chilima among leaders who have visited Malawi Congress Party (MCP) leader Dr Lazarous Chakwera at his residence to congratulate him following unofficial election results that show that he has headed to be declared Malawi’s next Head of State.

Chilima: To remain as Vice-President

Social media has been awash with pictures of leaders meeting Chakwera at his residence at Namiwawa in Blantyre on Thursday and Friday to congratulate him and plan events ahead.

Some of the notable figures who have met Chakwera at his house is former president Joyce Banda who leads the Peoples Party which is among the 9 parties in the Tonse alliance.

Speaker of Parliament Catherine Gotani Hara has also met Chakwera.

“Should we start reading too much into these events and the absence of Chilima at these meetings at Chakwera’s residence?” queried Steve Malamula on his Facebook account.

During campaign, Chakwera on several occasions promised to end vitimisation of the Vice President which has been prevalent in the past regimes.

Chakwera said he would work with Chilima “as partners” and that he would be Deputy President with specific duties.

“DPP failed to properly utilize Chilima. He is a performer and very capable person. In our government, he will be at the core in implementation of our promises and champion reforms in government,” said Chakwera during a political rally at Njamba Freedom Park.

Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC) is yet to announce final official result and declared the results.

Kuzolowera taking presidents as semi as semi god’s.
Take the new administration as business unusual.
Chilima is workaholic, he is busy with transition arrangements.

In his chivalrous humble Spirit Chilima not being at Chakwera’s home for congratulatory celebrations would make sense because he wanted to focus the lime light on his boss elect Chakwera and his hard earned victory at this time as well!

Useless article indeed. Chilima was also at his home and people went to congratulate Chakwela at his home, they would also have to go to Chilima’s house to congratulate him why should Chilima go to Chajwela’s house. This I snot a family affair its a political one. Once they establish their hierarchy and a central office you will see them working hand i hand as Ngumbi.

For sure useless article. What exactly did you want Chilima to be doing at Chakwera’s residence when he is being congratulated? Rubbish do not mislead the people’s mind.

I don’t think there’s an issue here. A phone call is enough while they are concentrating on bringing back sanity to gov.

He does not need to physically go.They are both winners and I don’t think a day goes by without talking to each other.
