Goodall, Jappie solicit chiefs support for Mutharika’s second term

Some traditional leaders from the north have given their unflinching support for President Peter Mutharika’s presidential second term, saying  he needs to finish off some development projects.

Goodall Gondwe: Mutharika deserves second term

The chiefs from Chitipa and Karonga said this Saturday night after a marathon meeting with Finance minister Goodall Gondwe and his Transport ministry counterpart, Jappie Mhango.
“The president has done a lot in the past four years. He still has more work to finish,” said chief  Kyungu.
He said the traditional leaders are satisfied with Mutharika’s style of leadership which he said displays maturity.
Kyungu however said this was not politicking and the traditional leaders were not backing Mutharika in the political struggles in his Democratic Progressive Party.
“As leaders we have an important role to play in informing our people to make the right choice on issues that affect them,” he said.
He however could not say whether the traditional leaders would work with vice president Saulos Chilima should he win the party polls

Vindere imwe what is the role of chiefs these days? A chief is no longer valid and we do without them. Disputes are settled in courts. This dpp government is stupid.

kyungu does not represent people from Karonga. He is in short a puppet of Mutharika and one that has betrayed our beloved northern region big time

Goodall and his fore-fathers have a reputation of ONLY VALUING their own selves (bellies) than anything else in society.
The story around Ekwendeni area is that Goodal’s father then working with the white minority government had ABSOLUTELY no problems at all seeing his own black compatriots suffer, being tortured, humiliated by the colonial power for as long as his welfare & that of his kids (now Goodall)) were nice and intact
So hstory now just repeating itself.
Shame on selfishness!!!

The Royal prostitutes should not be condemned for aligning with the ruling DPP. Whitewashing the DPP through chiefs is the best strategy for the grand old guy but will it save the DPP? Tata Kyungu was in exile during the reign of Dr Banda he needs to repay himself by engaging in trickery the DPP crumbs are the best for our chiefs we thank them for fawning to the DPP

The Law prohibits leaders from escorting their followers into voting booths……………………………………….!! How will this be made a reality? Nthawi yathu ino, ndi mfumu iti inganame kuti anthu angaimvere? Kodi a ndale bwanji amaganiza ngati ana?

Soliciting Chiefs support? Support ya chani?

Mafumu idyani ndalama zokubazo, koma you’ll never manage to follow us into the voting booth…………………………. kuti Peter wanuyo should win!! A Kyungu nso ni chindere chakufikapoooooooooooooo……….. chomeneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Goodall, Jappie and their Stupid Chief Kyungu tsopano. Presidents are voted into power by the citizens and not through boardroom negotiations. The issues who should represent DPP as presidential candidate does not involve chiefs, this purely party matter why involve chiefs. and that chief commenting on this is not wise all. Are chief members of the NGC for DPP? do they participant in voting for leaders in DPP?

Am always proud of my Chief Chikulamayembe very wise leader, you never find him in such uncalled for meetings. Sawira tchindi zikulu zikumwenelerani. Mfumu ya vinjeru.
