Kachali presents papers, delighted to have endorsed MCP hopeful Chakwera

Jovial, pomp and cheers were the predominant moods on Thursday as former Vice President Khumbo Kachali presented his parliamentary nomination papers for Mzimba South West constituency at Edingeni Primary School in Mzimba.

Initially, the presentation of his nomination papers for the constituency he currently represents in Parliament comes barely days after Kachali endorsed Dr. Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) as a presidential candidate for the May 21 tripartite elections in an electoral alliance with his Freedom Party (FP).

Accompanied by his wife Martha Kachali, the Freedom Party (FP) founder and president arrived at the venue at exactly 02:45pm boarding a black Nissan Patrol V8 vehicle amid the euphoria, singing and ululation from hundreds of supporters who followed his 4-car motorcade.

In an interview after presentation of papers, Kachali said he is confident he will retain the seat considering development activities he has initiated in the constituency.

“I have represented this constituency well. We have water; we have schools, good roads and electricity in most areas. The people themselves are my witness, we just need to continue,” he said.

Asked about his recent endorsement of Chakwera, Kachali who was the Vice President of the country during former President Joyce Banda and Peoples Party (PP) 2-years rule said Malawi needs a change and that change comes with Chakwera and MCP.

“I have endorsed Dr. Chakwera for the betterment of this country because we need to change leadership and I don’t regret it.

“Yes, In 2014 I endorsed President Peter Mutharika, but Malawians can judge him if he has performed or not. But on May 21 we want him out, and he will be out,” Kachali stressed.

For him to retain his parliamentary seat on May 21, Kachali will have to battle it with three other candidates namely Charles Ziba of United Transformation Movement (UTM), Raymond Nkhata representing the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and Jonathan Beza of MCP.

In 2014 Kachale endorsed APM because he expected to get a cabinet post. Having failed to get it, he now endorse Chakwera. He will fail again.

You are probably talking about Nyasatimes Malawians. Who can respect him when not too long ago he despised Malawians “ndimapita pakhomo pa amanu”? He also stole hospital beds from Mponela hospital to his home hospital. Does that attract respect?

Which Malawians? You mean the same Malawians he despised as “ndimapita pakhomo pa amanu? You mean the same Malawians whose hospital beds at Mponela he stole to his home hospital? Never again.

Which Malawians are you talking about? Malawians have not forgotten what he said when he was VP: We remember “Ndimayenda pakhomo pa amanu”? If you have forgotten, we haven’t. He stole hospital beds from our Mponela hospital to his home hospital. That we shall never forget.
