Speaker Chimunthu Banda: Qutting politics

In their salutations, Mutharika, Labour minister Henry Mussa, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secretary general Grazeider Jeffrey wa Jeffrey recognised the presence of Chimunthu Banda.

Mutharika was on Saturday officially opening Mangochi Community College, the 12th since the DPP led government started constructing them soon after Mutharika was voted into power in 2014.

Chimunthu Banda, who once was the most powerful in DPP, was once secretary general of the party, went under political underground in 2013 after Mutharika floored him in party primary elections for the presidency.

He was the only candidate who challenged Mutharika during the party presidential polls and Mutharika far much beat his only rival in the election

Chimunthu Banda claimed the party election were rigged in favour of Mutharika, claims Mutharika denied.

The former speaker  did not vie for a parliament seat in his home area in Nkhotakota.

These are tough times Bwana Chimunthu. Join the looting while the going is good. It’s only two years left before sanity returns to Malawi with a new government.

A Chimunthu sopo wayamba kuvutatu? It is hard to survive outside politics my brother. In politics one can steal public funds and still remain a free person. You can create bogus contractors and abuse allowances ad so on. All this at the expense of the ordinary Malawian.I hope you now know what Malawians mean when they say they are suffering.



Joku joku

That will be the ONLY stupidity move Chimunthu Banda can do in his lifetime as he will be dumped like ALL the VPs in Malawi.Indeed it was rigged in favour of MUthalika of the southern Malawi hemisphere for the Dpp was afraid that if Chihuman take lead then the Malawian Residency will be back to Central Region of which the Southerners don’t want to happen as per Bakili Muluzi’s words that the southerners want to rule MORE than MCP
