Ex-Blantyre mayor Chalamanda quits frontline politics

The former mayor of Blantyre City Council (BCC)  Noel Chalamanda said he was leaving frontline politics and will not campaign for any elected political seat in the May 21 Tripartite elections.

Chalamanda: Not contesting

But the former Blantyre City father said would continue  to “offer good pieces of advice” to the youthful  politicians seeking election in various seats.

Chalamanda, who is Blantyre City Centre Ward Councillor,  said quitting politics at this stage is  “the right thing to do” as he  would like to concentrate on things such as “business , school and family.”

A 43-year-old private practice lawyer , Chalamanda, who stood and won on an indepedent ticket said  after much consideration, he has decided not to be in the political arena.

Chalamdana is credited for raising the standards of the Blantyre city when he was the mayor. He was in Jnauary 2017 unseated bu his deputy Wild Ndipo of the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Youth Decide Campaign director Charles Kajoloweka  said  it is sad after such a vital contribution to Blantyre  and progressive politics, Chalamanda has called it quits.

Kajoloweka praised Chalamdanda that he  remains “ an influential figure” of the youth leadership.

Mr Chalamanda, you had all the chances and favour was on your side. But Alas, you did your Mathematics wrongly. People had been advising you to join the ruling party but you ignored. Politics is very good but requires accurate and NOT precise calculations so that you remain on the winning side. All the best my friend.

His noble mind tells him it’s not the right thing to do. Munthu wa umunthu wouldn’t like to be associated with za u cadet/ u savage wa DPP.
But the sad thing is someone with very good potential to contribute to genuine development of not only Blantyre but the country as a whole. But he was hijacked by one impostor, sewage yinayamilanso kununkha mu BT. All in the name of politics and blind loyalty in Malawi. PATHETIC.

HAD IT BEEN THAT THE RULING DPP HAD GOOD TRUCK RECORD, CHALAMANDA COULD HAVE JOINED. BUT ALAS! WITH ALL THE SCANDALS AND THEFT OF PUBLIC MONEY (MAIZE GATE, 145 MILLION, TRACTORGATE, ROAD TRAFFIC, ETC, WHO COULD HAVE JOINED DPP?

Chalamanda does not want to be on the “winning ” side as you are putting it, Ndede. Your so-called “winning” side is corrupt.

Chalamanda wants to be on the principled side.

Noel, I salute you my main man. You ‘ve got my respect

We shall miss you. You are resolute. You knew DPP is not one party to associate with, and have remained independent. I salute you.
