From the wall of Hope Mezuwa: The case of SKC, be great at whatever task

The country’s vice-president Saulos Klaus Chilima (SKC)  may not be your preferred political player and you may not even like him. But you surely can learn a thing or two from him.

The same energy, drive and motivation he exuded when he sought the presidential seat, he continues to showcase it even when the best he can get is only the vice presidency.

At COMESA, last year, he rode a tractor in the rain, did push-ups in Mzuzu and knelt down at Likuni. We probably thought he was too desperate to become Malawi’s president.

This year he lifted a bag of fertilizer at most of his rallies, hoisted the national flag in the famous Zomba speech, bent his knees before an audience in Mangochi and traveled far and wide in Malawi. Desperate for Vice Presidency? I don’t think so.

It’s about doing your best in every task you are given, big or small. Strive for excellence in every step of the game. Saulos Chilima is a winner. Lazarus Chakwera is a great leader; he saw a winner in SKC way before alliances were a must! He said it in parliament back then.

SKC Vice President of Malawi for close to 6 years I am yet to be convinced he can deliver beyond squabbles for power. Politics of casting others yes the man has delivered but what about his performance record as Vice President Zero he has nothing to show.He has not even uttered a single sentence of what he has done in the last 6 years.

Chilima has one problem. He does not want to build from the ground and be an opposition leader for 5 years. That will cost him a lot. You can’t work alone. It’s energy draining and unhealthy. He needs to re-build his political party from the area, branch, Constituency, District and regional level if he will have any chance of ruling this country at all.

What exactly do you mean when you say he does not want to build from the ground? What should he have done that he has not done?

SKC is a President material in the near future. He has made his mark on the Malawian landscape and people acknowledge his presence which will stay for long.

Losing politicians are afraid of him 🍞

Oh Yes, let the truth be told, Dr. Chilima is quintessentially African statesman, a consummate professional, who strives for nothing but excellence in every facet of his endeavours. He is the man we should all emulate and be proud of as a nation. While Malawi was on the verge of being declared a country beyond economical and political restoration, when most of us became comfortable with the title ‘ the poorest country in the world’, God has shown us His greatness and mercies,by providing us with Dr. Chakwera and his leadership ‘buddy’ Dr. Chilima. These guys ( Dr. Chakwera and… Read more »

Point of correction Chilima was identified by Prof. Mutharika not Chakwera. Chakwera is only an opportunist.

Of course, Dr. Chilima was understandably discovered by APM, everybody knows that. We all know that APM disowned Dr. Chilima, and started ill treating him by subjugation and suppression, and subsequently SCK ( could not breathe) and had no other choice but disband himself from APM. I have applauded Dr. Chakwera for rediscovering the multiple and unique talents, and exceptional characteristics that Dr. Chilima has, and conceptualised the plans to work together with him, for the ultimate and maximum prosperity for our beloved country Malawi. I have to repeat that Dr. Chilima is indeed a treasure to Malawi, a consummate… Read more »

He’s a very courageous and intelligent man of integrity.He is indeed the transformer,we’ve seen together the budget which the finance minister has delivered in parliament,all because of Chilima.All of sudden the government will reduce fertilizer from K20 000 to K5000?Why now?Because Chilima has spoken the real story how the government must run.

Well written and balanced… The writer has really been able to describe Chilima with no add-ons, just who the man is. We are certainly heading for the great future for every Malawian.

Chilima is a Man and a half and I’m not surprised that he is an achiever. The guys sets goals and achieves them no matter how many beatings he encounters. Chilima is already developing Malawi before he gets the top job. Fweteleza watsitsidwa ndi a boma Kamba komuopa mwanayu. Even as an entrepreneur you just need half of Chilima’s courage and focus to be a millionaire. Big up Chilima big up

Chilima has a great work ethic and focus. The man literally has led the formation of a party from scratch to a Presidential contending party in just over 1 year that is growing daily. He has brought change to how campaigns are conducted in Malawi not only with the impressive branding and marketing communication, but especially in the content on the political message. Just listen to him when he is delivering his speeches, the audience literally hangs on every word he says. Malawians have learnt their rights and what expectations they must have because of this new way of political… Read more »
