Kabwila vows no retreat despite ‘living dangerously’

Member of Parliament for Salima North West constituency Dr Jessie Kabwila says she will not be silenced  but will continue to be critical of President Peter Mutharika and his government despite the  torching of her car Toyota Fortuner 2013 Model  last week at Lilongwe Golf Club.

The firebrand MCP spokesperson also has issues with the ruling Democratic Progressive  Party (DPP) as she  has been a thorn in the flesh of the ruling party.

Alongside Lilongwe South-West fellow legislator Peter Chakhwantha Kabwila is on bail for imagined  treason charges  and has to report to police every week .

Addressing rallies in her constituency, Kabwila said he is living dangerously because regime thugs are after her life.

“Some people indeed petrol bombed my car, but don’t worry because it was all political and these people were targeting my life,” said Kabwila.

During the rallies which she addressed at three different places, Kabwila said she will never be intimidated.

The DPP has denied any involvement in the torching of her vehicle, saying it could be the result of some sour grapes e with her party establishmen.

But Kabwila insists she suspects the ruling DPP cadres could simply be making the most of the bad blood with her seniors to fuel the burning flames in a divide-and-rule fashion.

DPP has a history of arson attacks.

During the meetings Kabwira also launched campaign against child marriages.

She encouraged young girls to concentrate on the education.

“Women are not born to be married they can also achieve greatly in their lives, the problem is that if we see a woman or girls we only think of sex or children this mindset needs to change,” said Kabwira.

Kabwila said it is unfortunate that the area has high early marriages cases.

She cited some reports that some girls are even having babies at the age of 14.

Currently Salima district Social Welfare office has rescued 36 girls from the jaws of libidious men and currently 6 girls have gone back to school.

During the meeting, it was agreed to report all the early marriages cases to the relevant authorities.

Child marriages are rampant in Salima because a lot of girls flock to in search of fish from fishermen.

Kabwila said marriage is not a career.

“Let’s change our mindset a girlchild is not a sexual weapon or sex machine,” said Kabwila.

She also accused some teachers for sexually abusing learners.

She is brave and courageous but who is supporting her? It shouldn’t be her voice alone. She is fighting for a better Malawi and other MPs should be joining her. Please let her remain strong!

Umbeta ukukupwetekani chani?Sex was not designed to be a one man show neither to be abusive but people have made it to like for me that is i take sex as the meeting of two souls to meet body needs i.e when you doing with your wife is love making and when you are doing it with a whore its rust.For your information madam sex is enjoyed by two parties that the reason why wina akakhala ndi mauka okanda ndi mamuna wake.Why is sex charged by women not by men is to ensure that mukagule nirma kuti mukasukeko. i rest… Read more »
