Health activist slam Malawi politicians over disregard to Covid-19 preventive measures

A health rights activist is worried over continued disregard of deadly coronavirus (Covid-19) preventive measures as politicians continue to hold mass rallies.

Maziko Matemba: Worrying

On Sunday, the opposition alliance and President Peter Mutharika’s running mate in the July 2 presidential election – Atupele Muluzi –  held rallies in various parts of the country despite the government ban of assembly of people of more than 100.

Health activist Maziko Matemba said this was worrying in view of the raging coronavirus.

“They should find better ways of reaching out to the people in view of the coronavirus,” he said.

He said the safety of people against Covid-19 is paramount than politics.

But Malawi Congress Party (MCP) secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka has told a local radio station that it is the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  which started the flouting of the public health regulations which its own government put in place.

MCP and its alliance partners on Sunday Sunday held a grand political rally in Mzuzu.

United Democratic Front (UDF) secretary general Kandi Padambo said his party was observing all precautionary measures when conducting political rallies.

UDF president Atupele Muluzi on Sunday held a whistle stop tour from Liwonde to Lilongwe campiaging for President Mutharika’s reelection.

These health activists are hypocrites. Their main interest is to have inflated figures of those affected so that they keep on feasting on Covid-19 funds and are agents of the lockdown. Only 3 people have died of Covid-19 and yet malaria has killed hundreds in the same period. Because there is no money in the fight against malaria they have stopped talking about it. They will be very unhappy if cure for Covid-19 is found which is against their wish.

How much have they given you???. While the disease is evidenced in other countries, there is no convincing evidence that we have it here.If we did more than 300,000 people would have been dead by now. So stop being a puppet of some greedy politicians.
