Chilima joins Mutharika to open Malawi tobacco market

President Peter Mutharika and Vice-President Saulos Chilima were together in mark of unity on Monday during the opening of tobacco market at Lilongwe Auction Floors downplaying fears the relationship of the two will be sour  following remarks by former first lady Callista Mutharika bashing  the Head of State and luring Chilima  to contest in the 2019 Tripartite Elections as presidential candidate for the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

However, Chilima displayed loyalty and respect to President Mutharika  in body language as he joined him at the function.

Callista, the former first lady, who is widow of DPP founding president and former head of State Bingu wa Mutharika, has been making disparagimg statements about President Mutharika and his henchmen which she calls beasts of prey  who were messing up his administration.

The former first lady dropped a bombshell last week when she threw her weight behind Chilima as DPP presidential candidate in next year’s elections. She described Chilima as the hope for a better Malawi and his youthfulness could steer the country in a better direction

Chilima has not commented on the matter.

But by the reading of the situation on Monday, the Vice President will comment on the matter and is still sticking with President Mutharika as the winning ticket.

Chilima is a master of deception. To know chilima you need to read 48 laws of power never outshine you master and Art of war then you will understand this gentleman. You might think he is untested but he is the guy who can listen. Look at his character then make your judgemet. He knows it is extremely difficult to win the hot seat while out of DPP he aint stupid. He is very smart.

As Malawians we do not know Chilima yet because he is too much hiding behind APM and the DPP part. As one of the comments has said the guy is too afraid of making any political move. He has no political agenda of his own. He has nothing that he believes for himself. We have political leaders like Julius Malema in SA who everyone knows their line of thought. They speak openly and with audible voice pulling large clouds of people to their side. Malema started that while he was in ANC and he did not allow anyone to speak… Read more »

Let Chilima not allow fools like Callista to make him lose the VP position. Starting one`s own party is not a joke. The same people encouraging Chilima will be laughing at him once he has lost such a lucrative position.

Well, those who are asking, Chilima will not lose his VP position constitutionally but politically. That is significant because he will not be able to function the same way he is functioning now. He will be a figurehead VP. It will mean he will have to either start his own party or join another party. Ask Joyce Banda, Cassim Chilumpha and Justin Malewezi how it worked for them. They all ended up being the losers because they ill-timed their presidential ambitions.

Chilima is smart and knows what he is doing. Akufinya pang’onopang’ono.In Malawi you can not fire the Vice President. He can read a petition against his own government, call it corrupt but you can’t touch him.Chomwe mungachite ndikumulowetsa mu NEC ya DPP basi.Apo bii akumvetsani kuwawa simunati.

That’s what’s is expected of Chilima…..mantha ali thoooo! I am sure he must have urinated himself in his pants when he saw the whatsApp message and heard the radio interview. Chilima isn’t a seasoned politician and he would be eaten for lunch by Peter Mutharika. In fact the whole DPP is so fearful of Peter. If you a fly on the wall observing their meetings; all you will hear is……..inde bwana, inde bwana. Peter has never spoken to or addressed party leadership with respect, for exactly the same reason. These so called party leaders have been reduced to children with… Read more »
