Dausi says Chilima part of corrupt regime: Asks Malawi VP to clarify on ‘band igawana zida’ remarks

Malawi government spokesman Nicholous Dausi has said the the bold statement made by Vice-President Saulos Chilima about rampant corruption in country  is unfortunate because he is second-in command in government and should provide solutions.

Vice President Dr.Saulos Chilima: Stop cheering thieves

Dausi: Can the second-in command explain what his means in his corruption claims

Chilima, speaking on Saturday in Ntchisi district where he presided over Celebration of Patron of Saint: Our Lady of Fatima for Mpherere Catholic Parish, revealed that there’s wide spread corruption, abuse of tax payer’s money and theft, saying time has come for the citizenry to denounce the continued abuse of public resources by some crooked officials.

He said corruption has reached what he called “embarrassing levels” and accused perpetrators of such wicked acts of endangering the lives of many people in Malawi.

Chilima said the stench of corruption is immoral .

“ Izi ndizija mumapezeka kuti bandi yagawana zija chifukwa zanyanya[ immorality can lead to couples split]” he said.

But Dausi , who is also Minister of Information, Communications and ICT, said it unfortunate for Chilima to attack  the administration which he is second-in-command, saying he should provide solutions   to curb corruption, which is a major stumbling block to the country’s investment opportunities.

Dausi said Chilima would best clarify his corruption remarks and his “agree to disband” remarks.

“Ask him to explain that he is number  two most powerful person in the country; so, when you say there is corruption, what do you mean? Are you not part of the same corrupt administration? Ask him, he can speak for himself,” said Dausi.

But a political scientist from University of Malawi’s Chancellor College, Mustapha Hussein, observed that whatever Chalima  is saying has an implication at the popularity of the DPP.

He asked the ruling party to take the Chilima remarks “seriously”.

My personal advice to CHILIMA, you should handle your meetings with Peter very carefully bambo otherwise you risk the lives of your supporters. Make it very clear to your supporters whatever you discuss with the President. This issue will similarly be the same as that of PAC where the demos were cancelled last minute and people lost interest in them. If you know you cannot stand please Dont start issues of impossibilities. MUNGANGO PWETEKESA ANTHU.

Nchilima should not waste our time.
He is being used by Mcp to divide DP
Nchilima should take his instruments and join another band. I don’t even know which instruments he was playing in bpp. Was he a guitarist or pianist? Let him go we don’t need him in fact he was just picked from the streets of Airtel. Shsssss don’t waste our time,you are already finished in politics.You have now finished yourself.

Of course Honourable Dausi, Chilima is indeed part of the corrupt regime and is complicit in the crimes committed by his party. However, the difference between party’s leadership and Chilima is that he has began to find voice hence the denouncement of pervasive corruption. The fact that DPP is corrupt is no longer a suspicion or perception……it is real Honourable Dausi. Just sort it out and back off from castigating those honest citizens (and the VP in this instance) who are just telling the truth. Just sort it out madala.

Anayamba kalaekale kukutsutsani zochita zanu. Chitsanzo,NJOKA SAWETA. Mwambi umenewu simuudziwa tanthauzo lake? The DPP never listened. Instead, the Cadets have escalated their evil activities upon Malawians who voice their concerns on issues affecting our country. Tikaonetsetsa mukuyendera yoti wapakaliyala sayimba belu. Iye ndi vice presiden yes koma , simukumupatsa mpata kuwongoleranawo dziko kuzabwino. Reforms munamulanda and its now losing steam. The boss, who is on the saddle of this bicycle ( Malawi ) is the one Malawians want to see being decisive about the fight on corruption. There is more talk on corruption from the leadership than action.

Right there lies the problem. Why would a whole VP communicate to the masses using miyambi. He should simply call a spade a spade. The reason why he doesn’t use simple Chichewa or English is because he wants to hide under the usual “I was misquoted”. It’s one of characteristic of a coward leader who Malawians should avoid to elect. true and effective are known to be clear and concise in the way they communicate and bad leaders are famous for ambiguity.

Dausi is right. In fact I think Chilima does not respect Malawians. He takes people for granted. It is him who knows who is doing corruption in Government. It is him who should provide solutions. It is not wring to ask people to report corruption. But then how many people have been reported and nothing happened. Chilima should know that he is party to DPP’s political rot. He is inside enjoying the benefits and rights of VP in a poor country like Malawi. He should be the most corrupt person to think that Malawians should isolate him from the mainstream… Read more »
