Chilima has not tested Covid positive,  callous propaganda dismissed

Vice President Saulos Chilima has  not tested positive for coronavirus  as rumours on social media seem to suggest as government machinery has dismissed the callous propaganda.

Grief stricken Chilima following death of two cabinet ministers and other senior political figures

Nyasa Times has verified with government spokesperson Gospel Kazako as well as spoken to the Veep’s spokesperson Pilirani Phiri that indeed Chilima is well and has been in the office today.

“Ignore what is circulating on social media. The Vice President is well and fine,” Phiri said.

“Actually, he has already taken up the directive that the President has made that Dr. Chilima leads a ministerial task-team to review Covid 19 guidelines in order to respond effectively to the pandemic,” said Phiri.

During a national address on Tuesday, President Lazarus Chakwera directed that the ministries of Health, Homeland Security, Education, Civic Education, Local Government, Justice and Information to work together with the Office of the Vice President to review Covid 19 guidelines and recommend any amendments to be made to the guidelines.

Minister of Information also said Chilima has been taking regular tests of Covid-19 and his latest one in last 48 hours came negative.

On Tuesday  Malawi lost Local Government Minister Lingson Berekanyama and Transport Minister Sidik Mia to the virus pandemic.

In his address,  Chakwera said 6000 people have recovered but close to 50 people have died in the past 10 days.

The President has reminded the public to adhere to Covid measures, saying “each one of us is not safe.”

SKC needs to be healthy and fit. We pray for his healthy and the Laz Chakweras health. These are our leaders and may God protect them. Yes we didnt vote for them but being Presidents their position is a national one beyond party lines. Plus as human beings or tisiyane zipani we need to respect and wish each other well.

Don’t be scared Nyoni by those who are crashing you, you are talking the truth, only that truth pains. This idiot was really discouraging the former government in its noble efforts to combat the disease, power hungry for nothing; now look how brainless they seem to be in almost everything. Look also at that briefcase political party HRDC’s echoes that government should put in place complete lockdown, very laughable, lockdown today because it’s their government?

Hate it or take it but it's a fact

Whether Chilima is has tested positive for Covid or not, it’s immaterial. He is a human being like all of us. If he has tested positive, let’s pray for his quick recovery. If he has not, let’s encourage him to stay safe. This is a no joking matter gentlemen. Losing two senior Cabinet Ministers in a day is nothing more than a calamity.

If Hamdan arafat a.k.a. baby chilima has not tested positive, then God is not fair because chilima is the one who encouraged people to hug each other because covid-19 is fake. Lero anthu akufa ngati nkhuku because of chilima’s careless remarks. Kulankhula kwandithendithe sikwabwino. Naye chilima afe ndithu. Fotseki zake.

You maybe surprised that it would be you dying or your relationship dying of Covid-19 and not Chilima caz u can’t dictate to God what He should do. Death is beyond your control.

Its a pandemic, anyone can get it. Why all this excitement as if we are children with immature brains. If he got it chances are he would survive it just like the many that are recovering.

Sober up!
