Chilima sets countdown for  Mutharika’s exit at State House: ‘Malawians will be voting to have  new  president’

Vice President Saulos Chilima is reminding people the number of days left until the end of the President Peter Mutharika’s first term as people go to polls on May 21 2019, upbeat  that there will be leadership change through the ballot.

Chilima: Upbeat to be the next President of Malawi

Chilima, who is  also UTM presidential candidate in the May elections  challenging the incumbent, told a whistle-stop campaign meetings in Mangochi on Wednesday that the writing is on the wall that Malawians will be voting for a 6th Republican President and  Mutharika will join the ‘league of former presidents’.

The UTM presidential hopeful said he was counting down the days to the elections to alert the public of when the reign of Mutharika is over and to act as a beacon of hope for the masses.

“On May 21 all registered voters should go to the ballot and cast their votes for UTM to have a government which will make life enjoyable for everyone, ” said Chilima.

“Go vote for UTM because it is the only party that will give you sustainable growth in the economy and you will have a good life,” he said.

Chilima said the country need to reboot the current administration.

“ The people are suffering, the poor people are getting poorer every day. We have few days to change   for the better with our votes,” he said.

“The power is in the hands of the masses,  you the voters.”

Just like in all places Chilima has been campaigning for UTM, he elaborated what he will do if ushered into power next year.

He condemned the Democrtaic Progressive Party (DPP) for the usual sins of executive arrogance: greed, nepotism and corruption, saying it is worsening poverty in the country.

Chilima told the crowds that UTM administration will replace the scandal riddled Farm Input Subsidy Programme (Fisp) with a programme  for cheaper fertiliser to promote agriculture and ensure  household and national food security.

Fisp is dogged by political and logistical problems and many Malawians have expressed frustration with the subsidy programme.

The programme is increasingly missing its goal of promoting household and national food security through government’s provision of quality seeds and subsidised fertiliser to smallholder farmers.

Chilima said  a  cheaper subsidy programme could best replace the  Fisp programme, which  is not serving its purpose as it is only benefitting a few.

“We need to promote agriculture and end this shameful history of poverty in Malawi. I will announce new prices for fertiliser this month end of April but I can assure you it will be less than K10 000,” said Chilima, who dumped DPP last year  June.

Chilima said  the country need to promote modern farming technologies, revamp agriculture market and invest in value addition to grow the country’s economy.

Point of correction Mr Vice President. You’re still in the cabinet of DPP so you’re also counting your office down to usher the authentic leadership not team A & team B. You’re campaigning using taxpayers money so you’re not in opposition. It’s same scenario with Atupele truly, this stupidity has to stop. My vote is for Chakwera who has shown consistency & understandings the sufferings of us Malawians.

Point of Correction Checkmate, the Vice President is not campaigning using your money. Chilima is not using a Malawi government vehicle. He is using a UTM vehicle, he is USING UTM security, so when you accuse him of campaigning using your taxes, elaborate how he is doing that. It is a worst of time to be thinking of voting MCP a party that has the chance to show in Parliament that it can govern, but it failed, to pass many good laws such as the interest rate cap, the 50+1 law. MCP failed to whow leader, there has been alot… Read more »

I know your leader is a very talented individual. My issue is he’s two faced who’s playing Russian roulette getting funding from DPP to finances your party activities. ( That’s Taxpayers money) His is using the motorcade,Security detail,salary, ( That’s Taxpayers money ) The same Dpp cronies who’re disgruntled are primary in your party lacking moral conviction for suffering Malawi , they’re opportunistic period. Mcp pushed hard 50+1 til MPs were bought to sabotaged & your President was still part of cabinet then & failed to make a stand ….. why now? He failed to address critical issues of the… Read more »

Bravo Nchilima. You are fit to be in the opposition. Usawatenge a Malawi ngati opusa.
You will end up seeking asylum in Mozambique.

MCP inadya za Simbi that is why you supported the corrupt was project. Just to get water from Lake Malawi to Lilongwe, 60 Km it should cost us US$500, million. This can cost US$ 100 million it means US$400 million is for corruption.
