Ex- First Lady Shanil urges no vote for  party that insults women

Former First Lady Patricia Shanil Dzimbiri (formerly Mrs Muluzi) has urged women not to bring back into power a party that hurls insults at women.

Shanil: Those who insult women do not deserve votes

Dzimbiri did not mention the party during a political campaign rally addressed by UTM Party president Saulos Chilima on Saturday at Nsipe in Ntcheu.

However, two weeks ago there was anuproar in social media as well as mainstream news outlets when the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) director of Elections Ben Phiri told a rally in Balaka that Dzimbiri was divorced by former president Bakili Muluzi because she did not impress in bed.

The remarks drew condemnation from First Lady Gertrude Mutharika, the DPP, former president Joyce Banda and others.

“I urge politicians from other parties to emulate what the UTM does; they do issue-based campaign not name calling,” said Dzimbiri.

The director of women in UTM also thanked UTM for promising soft loans to women and the youth, saying this will go a long to improve the lives of the people.

There is a lot of stupidity going on. Ben Phiri did not insult women. He talked about you, Shanil, so don’t draw all of us in.

Shanil, you should shut up because Ben Phiri was right. Banja lomwe unalanda la Muluzi ndi Anne linakukanika. Unkayesa kuti ndiwe ochenjera. Foolish woman.

Shanil sanalande Banja but was in a polygamous union….Muluzi married shanil in 1982 when shanil was a teacher at St Teresa primary school at Liwonde, get your facts straight kungoti Annie was the 1st wife…shanil used to stay at zomba state house from 1994 and only got into the limelight when bakili divorced Annie….as per Muslim tradition shanil then became the senior wife

Shanil analanda banja because there is no such thing as a woman consenting to polygamous marriage. It’s always the man using his money and a miguided woman like Shanil who thinks she is better than the other woman. Anne Muluzi was not happy about Shanil but she had to stick to the abusive marriage chifukwa cha ana. In the end, Shanil banja linamukanika. By the way, naye chitekete Muluzi was left pa mbalambanda with no Anne and Shanil. WHY. Because polygamous marriages bring enormous pain and I dare say – are outdated.
