Dausi says Chilima should now resign as Malawi VP: Accuses UTM of foul-mouthing

Malawi government spokesperson, Nicholas Dausi, has asked State vice-president Saulos Chilima to abdicate from his Constitutional position following his attacks on the government of perpetuating corruption and nepotism.

Dausi: Let Chilima resign as Vice-President 

Dausi urged Chilima to joining the ranks of opposition parties in the trenches of electoral battle for State House in next year’s polls.

Dausi said it was ironical that Chilima is talking about corruption now yet he remained quiet for the past four years.

“If there is corruption, let the Vice-President resign from government so that he remains holy as he claims. In civilised democracies, if a minister is against the policies of government, they resign, why is Chilima not resigning?

He said the Vice-President should resign if he is serious about corruption.

Chilima has openly declared war against the DPP and President Peter Mutharika who he is accusing of maladministration.

He has warned that he will soon spill the beans about shady deals the current administration is allegedly involved in, including in the procurement of Escom generators.

And United Transformation Movement (UTM) secretary general Patricia Kaliati has shot down the resignation demands, saying Chilima will stay on as Vice-President, a position elected by Malawians after standing on the ballot with Mutharika in 2014.

“Dr Saulos Klaus Chilima will not resign until 2019 because he was chosen by Malawians. They are sponsoring people to watch football on the days we are having our rallies so that people do not patronise our rallies but they have failed,” Kaliati said.

Dausi said DPP is not amused with Kaliati and people in the movement for their “foul-mouthing”.

He said UTM doing salvage politics of insulting the DPP.

“They insulted us at Masintha and they went to town with no respect at all,” Dausi lamented.

UTM is a splitter movement  from DPP which is touting transformational change.

Honourable Dausi, if you think that by Chilima resigning as VP, DPP will have an easy ride, then you haven’t been paying attention. In fact Honourable Dausi, that’s the least of your problems. DPP has 10 months to start delivering on its promises of 2014 and to decisively deal with corruption starting your own senior members otherwise UTM will have an easy win come May. The only way you can fight his messaging is for DPP to act on the very agenda on which UTM will thrive (corruption, nepotism, cronyism, tribalism, regionalism, unethical leadership, lack of independence on law enforcement… Read more »

Y calling Chiliza to resign ngati kuti alipo yekha amene asakugwira ntchito m’malawi mumo.Nde ma civil servants ngati muzipatala nawo awuzeni apangenso resign chifukwa akungokhala kusowa zipangizo.Mpatseni ntchito Chilima tione ngati sagwira.Mesa ndizokonza kusampatsa ntchito yoti agwire.Muziwa munthu nkulinga utayenda nayo.Chilima DON’T resign.

U r not getting the point bro. Chilima is not asks to resign becoz he is not working only BT becoz it will be hard for him to work with the gvt he doesn’t trust & which he is against with. Politics aside, do u think is logical to work with the group f pple you are up against with?

The fact that Chilima does not want to resign is evidence he does not stand for change.

Chilima is a failed VICE PRESIDENT of the Republic of Malawi, Who during his tenure of office failed to stop corruption or bring the culprit to book..having failed to stop corruption he is busy stealing tax payers money by receiving salaries for the job he has failed to do.

Bwana you should know better. Your President is that one running this ship which is sinking, Chilima has jump out. If you acknowledge that there is corruption, lets start with the President. HE HAS FAILED!! Chilima couldnt do much. They even took him out of the Reform Program, why? The President has ultimate power. MALAWIANS NEED TO STOP BEING STUPID, DONT VOTE FOR THE SAME OF BINGUS 1ST TERM OR TRADITIONAL ALIGNMENTS. OUR COUNTRY IS GOING DOWN THE DRAINS CAUSE OF THIS AND NO INTELLIGENT BEING CAN DENY IT.

PLEASE LETS HOLD POLITICIANS TO ACCOUNT. WHEN THEY ARE CORRUPT,

Dausi is missing a point, what needs to happen is not Chilima to resign but for the DPP and their prince of thieves to stop stealing without shame from the poor malawians. Thats all what needs to haappe mr dausi!

Mr Dausi,accusing government it does not need someone to be in opposition parties only,NO.Even if he or she is in government as long as they is something wrong he/she can accuse or oppose it.Stop having old types of politics of being a hand clapper even on a wrong thing Mr Dausi.Thus why we are saying leave these modern politics to NEW GENERATION.
