Chilima Movement storm Lilongwe, hold rallies
Vice President Saulos Chilima’s sponsored movement was on Thursday scattered in chief M’bang’ombe area in Lilongwe with a strong body language that the veep would be on the ballot paper during the 2019 presidential poll.
The strong campaign team included the outspoken firebrand politician Patricia Kaliati and Bon Kalindo.
Kalindo told the people who turned up for the rallies that Chilima would be on the presidential ballot paper.
“We just wanted to ensure that our arsenal is ready so that when he comes asking for their votes, people should not be surprised and confused,” said Kalindo.
This puts to rest rumours that Chilima might strike an electoral alliance with the main opposition Malawi Congress Party.
Kalindo ruled out Chilima movement turning into a political party saying it might be too late for the elections.
On Friday, the movement hits chief Mazengera’s in Lilongwe as it intensifies campaign to have Chilima oust President Peter Mutharika at ballot box.
Chilima on Wednesday publicly attacked Mutharika’s administration of being riddled with corruption as he announced his resignation from the ruling party, leaving the door open for a presidential run.
He was handpicked by President Peter Mutharika to run alongside him in the 2014 elections on the Democratic People’s Party (DPP) ticket.
“We must give this country a new lease of life. We must clean this country. We must drain the swamp.”
Chilima’s shock move comes as calls ere mounted from within the DPP for him to challenge 79-year-old Mutharika, who has ruled the country for four years.

Winston Msowoya is not from the North. He only uses a pseudo name. He is actually a Mulhako masquerading as a Northerner. The strategy is to appeal to votes from the North which Mutharika will not get this time around! Let Msowoya write his novels just like one Santana. 2019 will show to whom they can sell their novels. Mia is not an Arab. Are you saying that all Yaos are Arabs? Have a life man!
If Chilima will contest during the 2019 polls, he will manage to take the position of the leader of opposition. After the polls, Chakwera will become the president of the nation. Munthalika will be 3rd on the list, Chilima will be 2nd to Chakwera. This will be great for our democracy. If Chilima promotes zero tolerance on corruption, nepotism and other factors that derail our national development, then he will be well placed on the position of the LoP.
kikikiki mukumva bwanji mthupi a Peter Mutharika.
ku mtundu kwathu konse mavoti ako chilima dzatenge
chilima bwela udzatengeletu voti yako
Saulos Chilima ndi chiyembekezo cha tsogolo la dziko lathu lino, bravo Chilima
Mulomwe salankhulalankhula koma chinthu chimodzi chomwe ndidziwa ine ndichoti mulomwe samafuna zaulukhu. Ulukhu wanuwo muzipanga ndi achipeta omwewo.
A Kaliati munazolowera misonkhano ya anthu ambiri a DPP. Mwayambazi zingokulowetsani pansi izi. Tongobwelerani kudzapepetsa. Anakakhala malonda tinakati mwatenga malonda obvunda. Msonkhano woyamba, anthu ake okhawo?
Ada Mesimadzi, Kamela inayang’na ku sanja, kumene kuli a Kaliatiko. A Kaliati ndiamene akuyang’ana kumene kuli anthu, nde sunganene kuti kunali anthu angati chifukwa chinthunzi cha anthu palibepo.
At least people have confidence in Chilima than Peter Mutharika and Chakwera combined. You will be surprised that most DPP and MCP supporters will vote for Chilima as a presidential candidate.
Kaliati wazungulira mutu.
