Chilima Movement is getting up steam: High spirits at Monkey Bay rally

The so called Chilima Movement, which is pushing for Vice-President Saulos Chilima to run for the presidency in the 2019 Tripartite Elections, rolled its political meetings  at the weekend with a public meeting at Kachere township in Blantyre and mass rally at Boadzulu School Football Grounds in Monkey Bay, Mangochi.

Crowds at Monkeybay for Chilima Movement rally

The grouping which is a breakaway from the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) went ablaze with the inferno of the burning desire for Malawi to usher in a new era of transformative and visionary leadership

The Chilima Movement engaged yet another gear in taking the agenda for a prosperous and united Malawi in 2019 and beyond when it articulated the vision of eliminating corruption , tribalism and nepotism in Malawi at the rallies..

The promoters of the movement took turns in urging the thousands of citizens from all walks of life, both young and old  men and women in equal measure, to banish the vices of arrested development by voting into the presidency Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima in 2019 for a brighter future for all Malawians with promises of employment, high quality of education, health for all and the end to chronic hunger and starvation in an area where the lake is just meters away.

“Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima or SKC is a new hope for change,” said  the keynote speaker, Patricia Kaliati.

And her compatriots before her;  Noel Masangwi, Richard Makondi , Bon Kalindo and Lewis Ngalande; reiterated  the point that in an area blessed with abundant water and natural resources,  it was sinful for Malawians to be thirsty and starving because of lack of clean portable water and famine.

They attributed all this to nothing but self inflicted ills to the lack of visionary leadership which will be brought to a dramatic end under the energetic and focused drive to succeed attitude and track record of competence demonstrated by Chilima.

They emphatically declared that all this season of nightmare will be a thing of the past.

Akweni, as  legislator Kaliati is fondly known,  pointed out that no Malawian will die again because of hospital theaters that had no electricity supply, no infants will needlessly die in hospital incubators because hospitals had no electricity and expectant mothers will never ever again have to be under the threat of losing lives because of lack of midwifery and medical facilities.

Masangwi and his colleagues in the movement promised Malawians that the era of politics of confrontation is coming to its unceremonious end and that united in purpose, all Malawians will join hands and forces to transform the Warm heart of Africa into a beacon of hope and a shining example of a democratic republic.

The movement concluded the citizens’ engagement by urging every Malawian aged 18 years and above to go and register in order to exercise the important responsibility of voting Chilima in the May 2019 elections as President and the leader to take Malawi to a brighter future.

CHILIMA MOVEMENT? IS THAT A MOVEMENT? Chilima is positioning himself as a Presidential candidate. And more than one among many: as a vice President he has gotten a lot of publicity. Mostly as the champion of the civil service reform, which was expertly blocked by the vested interests of the civil service, who were supported by the vested interests in DPP. The President, as usual, did nothing. Otherwise Chilima is known for starting out hyper-actively, but soon being forced into submission to the sluggish speed of our government apparatus (unless there are allowances or lucrative contracts to be had: that’s… Read more »

we’re still in trouble Malawians cause what I have discovered is that every one is after a high position not solving Malawians problems. Ya there is freedom of joining or forming other political parties but as I can see these are same blood they have made Malawi ans to suffer

Nothing new can come from MCP. This is the same party that caused a lot of Malawians to shed tears. This party is actually a murderous club. If they have changed, let them change their symbol. So long as their symbol is Tambala Wakuda, be assured sanasinthe, akangolowa m’boma muliranso.

In 1993, we voted for multiparty democracy and succeeded. Today a Malawian is free to form his or her political party . He or she is also free to join any party. Hence let no one intimidate Chilimas freedom. He is a son of our land. He is a new generation leader. He has a vision for his country. He feels sorry for his fellow citizens who are suffering due to extreme poverty. Poor healthcare services. Poor education facilities. Almost no electricity for the economy to grow. Neglected agriculture programmes. The country needs a young and energetic leader like Chilima.… Read more »

I welcome your movement but i would love you to support Chakwera if you really want a change in Malawi.If you want to form your own party and contest in the next coming elections then there you are not helping the many suffering Malawians in the diaphora.People in the diaphora will always think that it is the same DPP faces.

Though am not a DPP supporter I foresee this bunch of crooked comedians won’t achieve any thing at all. Ata mapulani awa muzingo pemphera kuti peter asazawinetu muzazibibira kwa sabata…. I regret for not voting peter for presidency during the last election, he is a deal. Amadziwa kukhala bwino ndi anthu akadakhala ena mwano mukuchita uja bwenzi mutanyenyedwa kale because peter knew that you want to provoke him and when he act vehemently his venom as a president with a constituition protection by arresting failures, you bring instability among the society……. Mwanya, he is quite leaving you doing your trash.… Read more »

I have never seen zitsiru za anthu ngati inu…happy at the expense of poor Malawians…destroying our country for your selfish reasons – SHAME ON YOU. What has DDP down other than stealing and destroying the country…How could Mutharika say he will develop the country to the standard of Europe yet he failed to do so to the standard of Rwanda – which is on of the fastest developing country in Africa. I live in Europe and feel sorry for my country with people like you…just wasting our taxes that we pay here and you get as FOREIGN AID in Africa… Read more »
