In his brief speech in Lilongwe at Malawi Square, President Chakwera said time has come for Malawians to go beyond their dreams and make them come true.

He promised that together with Vice President Saulos Chilima, they will be servants of the people not rulers and restore the future of the country’s generation.

“Both Chilima and I, with your help, will have a government that serves, inspires, listens and not shout. A government that fights for you and not fight against you, “said President Chakwera.

He has since pledged to run Malawi towards the path of Tsogolo Labwino.

“What use is freedom if you and I are a slave to starvation,”he said.

Chakwera committed  to deliver, saying he had a blessing from God to govern the country to the best of his ability.

“I am duty bound by God and all of you to give you my best,” said Chakwera a former preacher who headed Malawi Assemblies of God before joining frontline politics.

He also offered an olive branch to political competitors, saying he wants to be a President of all Malawians.

“I want to tell you that this new Malawi is a home for everyone whether you voted for me or not,” said Chakwera.

He continued: “Trust us and make this win, a win for all of us. Those celebrating should be celebrating with humility,” he said.

Chakwera is now set to make key appointments to his administration.

I hope you guys live by your testimony. People have cried for change. And change has come despite the wrongdoers putting in fight and obstacles. People have elected you to serve not to boss over them. Please review all institutions of government. Nepotism has to go. Tribalism has no place in our country. Wrong doeers have to face the full force of the law. Governing by consent should be the order for the day. People should not leave in fear of their own government. Selfishness and greed has to go. There are many talented malawians who are rarering to go.… Read more »

I absolutely feel you but Quite frankly I lost hope in Malawian politics. A close look at the MCP is mostly ex pp and dpp. So please explain to me what they will do differently. I believe Mr Chakwera is a man of integrity but he has too many crooks in his camp. However All we can do is pray for him that God helps him through these 5 years.

The nation will judge you after 5 years, then will be the turn of Chilima who will also be judged by the nation his 5 years and may be re-elected based on that judgement.
