Joyce Banda rejects Kaliati’s ‘cheating’: ‘My support is for Chakwera’

Former president and People’s Party  (PP) leader   Joyce Banda has described as rigging, remarks, uttered by UTM  Party Secretary General Patricia Kaliati at a rally in Zomba.

Kaliati made assertions  at a televised campaign rally in Zomba suggesting the former president is supporting the UTM presidential candidate, Saulos Chilima.

But speaking on the sidelines, after a rally she held at Matambala ground, Traditional Authority Mwambo in Zomba,  Banda said such remarks are careless and tantamount to rigging.

Banda was asked by reporters to speak on the assertions that were made at a rally held at Mponda school in Zomba by Kaliati.

She said the PP is going in this election throwing all it’s vote, support and everything that is needed towards Dr. Lazarus Chakwera,  presidential candidate of Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

Banda said Chakwera is the only leader who has what it takes to govern the country at the state it is.

Speaking earlier on during the rally, Banda said  Chakwera is the only God fearing leader who has the vast ability to rescue the country from the state of dwindling economy.

The rampant corruption that has skyrocketed beyond expectation, Banda said, is the cause of failure on the part of government in implementing equitable, accessible and effective service delivery to it’s citizenry.

Before addressing the multitude that gathered at Matambala ground, Banda had whistle stops at Chinamwali in  Zomba Central, Zomba Thondwe and Zomba Ntonya.

She is coming from a northern region tour that saw her stopping over at Kanyama in Dedza South constituency after touring Chitipa and Karonga canvasing the Hi5 and Chakwera vote.

Improved economy, agriculture, health, education, good prices for farm produce, such as tobacco, mining, technology advancement, rural development, and infrastructure development are key in the Chakwera Hi 5 agenda and the People’s Party ideologies.

Banda told the huge gathering converged at the venue that while Dr. Chambers will be busy with government affairs, she will concentrate on working with the rural communities in an effort to achieve a decent life.

“I will be working with chiefs in our projects, we will establish smart villages for all,” said Banda.

The PP leader also emphasized her total commitment in achieving her goal of promoting and transforming  women’s lives through loan acquisition and skills development.

Kkkkk. I don’t know how JB knows qualities of a good President?
I wish I could have attended at least one of her rally before these elections . What is she telling people? My own assessment is that she was the worst. Number one Kamuzu, number two Bingu, number 3 Peter, Number four Bakili, number five JB.

JOYCE BANDA WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT CHILIMA ON BBC IS HAUNTING YOU NOW. DONT BLAME KALIATI. KALIATI SPOKE THE TRUTH.

YOU CHOSE CHILIMA AS FIRST AND BEST BUT HE REFUSED DUE TO YOUR GREEDINESS AND CASHGATE MENTALITY.

GO BACK TO YOUR SPEECH ON BBC POOR SOUL. DONT THINK WE ARE STUPID. AZIMAYI PENA MUMSCHITA ZINTHU WITHOUT USING YOUR HEAD PROPERLY. THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK JB.

YOU SAID WE VOTE FOR CHILIMA AND YOU GAVE VERY CONVONCING REASONS. SO WE WILL VOTE FOR CHILIMA. SHUT UP YOUR CASHAGATE MOUTH.

You guys must be kidding – do you think MCP can win any elections? People are still licking the wounds of MCP attrocities. Lero mukuganiza kuti Amboni za Yehova zikuvotereni Come on! Chakwera thanks for trying. MCP you guys stink blood and have a long way to go. Tell us your role in the one party system and may be we can reconcile. This has never happened.

Chakwera. When u win this coming Tuesday please amend the law wer a sitting president should not waste his time and our money campaigning. Being a sitting president he is already on spotlight n only his party or representative should campaign for him.

Mwejo Abhiti Kazhigeti…rigging is what you wanted to do in 2014 by attempting to rape the election process and stopping vote counting. Stop this typist mentality and respond to the primary school teacher with a clear response. Why parade a person with albinism in the colours of the fake accent ex-reverend? By your own standard this is also rigging.

I will say the truth here. I was ready to vote for Chakwera but he is riding on two tigers. They will definetely swallow him. Ine I could have never have voted for JB . Koma the greedy woman to davnce the interests of her son wazipanikiza mu MCP. My vote is definetely out because she is consolidating power through the backdoor. Then there is Sidik / Abida Mia. Chakwera be warned , Sidik will be a co president. Whatever agreements you guys have made, expect the Mutharika – Chilima scenario. He does not come from the Lower Statesfor nothing.… Read more »
