Kabwila’s outbursts return: ‘Thieves in govt should return stolen money’

Salima North West Constituency legislator, Jessie Kabwila, is back—being featured heavily in media—and has, for the past few days, called for collective effort from the populace to end the quagmire that has “dangerously” rocked the country.

Kabwila: We cannot allow the thieving to go on

Kabwila said in Point Blank—a Times Television program—that the levels of corruption in Malawi are disheartening and, that leaders should realize that anger is building in the citizenry.

The former University of Malawi (UNIMA) lecturer, famous for her  fight for academic freedom at Chancellor College (Chanco), noted that it is unfortunate that some leaders keep on stealing from government funds at the expense of the poor.

“It is too bad. If that money was equitably distributed to all people, there would be an economic boost in this country,” said Kabwila.

According to her, all those that were a involved in cashgate—the public looting of government funds—should “return the money to government.”

The chair of the women caucus in parliament also said Malawians are not happy, and that anger was building in them which will soon burst.

“There is a revolution coming. And, a revolution can be delayed but it cannot be prevented,” said Kabwila.

In another interview on Zodiak TV, Kabwila explained her recent experience in the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) where she and three others were expelled on insubordination charges saying “there was no need to focus on the past” and that she is now focusing ahead.

“There are people there [MCP] who simply want to disturb and confuse. But I’m not the kind,” she said, adding that was why her constituents call her a ‘machine.’

She said she was born a leader and that if given a chance to run for the presidency she would take up the challenge.

Madam Kabwila, you are very critical, outspoken and controversial in the way you do politics even in your own party! I really hope your MCP colleagues and the people of you constituency can handle this!
Politics in Malawie need peoples like you, there are too many bootleggers around with no other agendas than personal gains!
Keep the focus on the people/ women you serve! This is way I like you!

Hahaha this s laughable. Leaders are calm, composed, intelligent, not abusive, and all these qualities are not there in you. There are good leaders in MCP but on that list your name is not there, sorry for that. Where can you lead people to? To the grave maybe?

The Malawi political terrain is full of looters and as Chilima rightly put it….jails will be full of criminal politicians if they were all to be prosecuted and convicted. There are thieves in DPP, MCP, PP and now UTM. to drain the swamp would involve smartly coordinated efforts but would well be worth it. More funds for Malawi development and clean politics gong forward. No longer would party pushers invest their hard earned money in funding political parties in exchange for ziphuphu and tenders. I would urge you honourable Kabwila to start with your own house MCP.

And how people at Kamuzu Central Hospital are suffering. The money being used on pity issues like buying alcohol could have been used to refurbish the hospital

Kikiki Jessie Kabwila for President!
The plain truth is that she’s forcing herself onto MCP, a Party and it’s leader that do not want her. Ever.
