Chilima to address news conference Wednesday as Malawi govt chokes VP’s office

State vice president Saulos Chilima has arranged a news conference on Wednesday to comment on recent political developments, his office has said.

Malawi VP Chilima: Facing attack within rank and file of DPP

The development comes when the Veep uses personal vehicles for official duties because his official fleet is obsolete and prone to frequent and regular break downs, parliament was told on Tuesday.

Chairperson of the parliamentary cluster committee responsible for the veep’s vote, Lilian Patel said in addition, the office of the vice president has inadequate fleet.

“The ministry of finance should buy the office new vehicles,” said Patel.

This comes at the time when the government has just bought some of the top of the range vehicles for cabinet ministers.

Patel said the principal secretary uses his personal vehicles as well.

She lamented that the office had drastically and consequently reduced the budget.

Chilima fell out with president Peter Mutharika after stories that the veep wants to challenge Mutharika for the position of the ruling Democratic Progressive party.

All this noise is because he wants payback for helping rig an election. its his fault and his rigging tactics that have put Malawi where it is. Stealing an election is evil and we can see by the way he is trying to overthrow Peter and takeover DPP that he really isn’t that different from the rest. Power hungry and entitlement. Anawaliza a Mbendera uyu.

Our country is lacking a leader who truly love it like the way Bingu did in his first 5 years. If SKC is going to address challenges that malawians are facing l can assure you he will be our next president whether as a DPP candidate or independent candidate. l’m wishing you all the best SKC & may good Lord continue showering blessing upon you.
