Dr Chilima, which public projects are you touring? Mwayamba zitukuko ziti zoti mpaka zafika poyendera. I thought you were the one fighting the APM administration saying sakudziwa kuyendetsa boma? Lero ukuyendera zitukuko zomwe adakhazikitsa. Why this spirit, the pull down spirit? Lero wakumana nazo ku MCP kulibe democracy. Its autocratic and Chilima can not maneuver in MCP.

Chilima already inspected the jenda-edingeni Rd during campaign, I wonder how many times he will inspect the same Rd before engaging contractors. Instead talking about covid19 thefts, he wants to hide behind project inspections. he has no shame at all.

Waste of time and public resources. So far which report or reform proposals ,made by SKC has Chakwera implemented. Zero. Chilima would resign if he had any honour left in him. Chilima is bidding his time before he call Chakwera corrupt.

I imagine that’s an easy job. Just being driven to various parts of the country to look at projects and tell contractors to expedite the job? I’d love a job like that so that I can tour some hidden spots like Nyika Plateau

Gvt projects should never be personalized, Phalombe dist. hosp. inclusive. This is delaying development in our country. The fact that the hospital was built under dpp doesn’t make it owned by dpp. Dpp is out of government and will never come back any soon.

Chilima has achieved nothing so far, he likes clinging to positions but can’t perform. He is just a talker
