The ascendancy of President Joyce Banda brought joy to the African continent, the whole World and it remains for Malawians to appreciate its huge impact, New Republican Party (NRP) president Gwanda Chakuamba has said.
Chakuamba, who was a special guest of Vice President Khumbo Kachali at Kalikumbi ground in Mzimba South West constituency alongside Malawi Democratic Party (MDP) president Kamlepo Kalua, told the ruling People’s Party (PP) campaign rally that the country had been saved from the jaws of the DPP.
“I come from Nsanje, where all the waters of Malawi go to. I am here to join you to celebrate, eat and enjoy with you as we appreciate what God has done for this country. Others talk of DPP, I say No No not DPP again, we have had enough misery,” said Chakuamba who kept the crowd laughing all the time with his jokes.
The veteran politician said Malawians need to thank God for all the opportunity that has risen through the Presidency of Joyce Banda where all parties could work together and find solutions to common challenges that the people face.
“It is up to us to say thank you God or say God we are not thankful for the huge change and salvation he gave us. We cannot continue to pretend we had a great savior in the previous regime that went. If we cannot thank God then I don’t know,” said Chakuamba.
‘Nothing to oppose’
Kalua on his part said there was nothing to oppose in the country after the administration of President Banda had brought all Malawians together to be able to be constructive and develop the country.
“It would not be right for me Kamlepo Kalua to oppose President Joyce Banda or Khumbo Kachali. Peoples will laugh at us and ask us to go to Mlowe and sit down,” said Kamlepo, shouting his trademark ‘tchwee mwana tchwee!’
Taking to the podium was also PP’s powerful orator, Home Affairs Minister Uladi Mussa.
Mussa said the MCP, UDF and DPP were no longer in position to return into power as they had failed to listen to Malawians, saying the PP’s inclusive government was meant to ensure that all Malawians are heard.
