Malawi VP Chilima roars for change: Moves Zomba rally with emotions

An emotional, spirited and energetic Malawi Vice President but turned opposition Saulos Chilima delivered one of his best ever political speeches that could fall in the categories of Martin Luther King with ‘I have a dream’ speech, moving the crowd at Gymkhana ground in Zomba with emotions.

Chilima: Change is coming 
Chilima: Change will not be stopped, so help Malawi God!

Earlier, Chilima held whistle-stop meetings in Zomba and here he addressed people at Jali

It all started with former president Joyce Banda, praying that political opponents must spare the life of Chilima, saying “his mother, the late Elizabeth Valera Chilima wanted the best of his son and her soul will not rest in peace if others are busy plotting to kill her son”.

As he took to the podium, SKC, as Chilima is fondly known, told  Banda that ” your speech made my eyes moist especially because you reminded me of my late mother.”

Taking it from there, Chilima said unlike others, he is in this campaign on his own and with alliance partners not “my father who organises thugs for my political opponents. I don’t have a father who works for what position I should get in life.”

This was a thinly veiled attack on President Peter Mutharika running mate Atupele Muluzi, described by many as a daddy’s boy who has never lived his own life.

For a while, Chilima unpacked Tonse Alliance manifesto but at the end he delivered message to President Mutharika, warning him that he will not stop change by trying to undermine the judiciary.

“After the 150 days that the courts gave, we will go to court. You will not intimidate us. This country belongs to Malawians. We will defend this country g. We will not fear at all,” said Chilima.

Chilima then went into a prayer that moved every one and made others shed tears as shown on television.

“I know there is almighty God in Heaven. And I pray to you Lord, remove our Poverty, Fear and Cowardice. We give this country back to you to redeem us. No matter how long the night may be, a new dawn awaits us,” prayed Chilima.

As he wound his speech, Chilima took out a Malawi national flag and in a loud emotional voice told the people that as Malawians they will be bound by the flag.

At this time, the crowd became quiet with emotions. It was Cathedral silence that you could hear the drop of  a pin.

He then asked everyone to stand to sing the Malawi  national anthem further sparking emotions.

Soon after the speech, social media went viral calling him a patriot and energetic.

“This is the leader. A leader who gets angry on my behalf. A leader who cries for this country. A leader who is passionate for this country,” wrote Thandi wa Pulimuheya.

Malawi is scheduled to have fresh presidential elections before July 3 as ordered by the court, Parliament meeting in Lilongwe will set the poll date with Malawi Electoral Commission proposed to be June 23.

If Chilima continues with the same spirited speech of hope for Malawi, then he is headed for victory. The Zomba rally gave the people of Malawi hope. I wish the people of Malawi peaceful campaign. Malawi the warm ♥ heart of Africa.

Our Dr Saulos Kraus Chilima is a political asset to Tonse Aliance, he will bring more than 1 million votes to the 1.8 million votes for the God fearing and cool man Dr Lazarus Chakwera. Imagine with this type of SKC ‘s strong speech in the Zomba Eastern Region, the eighty year old Peter Muthalika is inactive, busy sleeping and drinking “vinyo”. While the dad’s son, Atupele is making empty noises about the MK9 billion elections legal costs claim. Who is to blame, between the MEC management poor foresight and inefficient at its best and the MCP/UTM legal Team that… Read more »

I am a cadet and religiously hated SKC. A friend sent me a clip of his speech yesterday in zomba. I forced myself to listen to it for over 7 times. I have with my whole heart joined UTM . The Vice president loves malawi. His speech spoke of a person who is so passionate about his country. I have been in the blue camp because of Kindwani Nakhumwa . I wish these two worked together . Malawi will be different. SKC you have my vote and of my whole family and village in lomwe belt where I come from.… Read more »

Some idiots in the country are so confused and totally biased by insisting that APM is a caretaker President and yet they are the same people who were in the forefront demanding that Saulos should revert to being VP soon after the pronouncement of the kangaroo court. My question is, in what capacity is Zeze VP and why not APM since they both served together in the previous government? Does the matter only affect APM and not Arafat? Other lawyer’s interpretation of the law says ‘one can be known as The President after being sworn in’. Was APM not sworn… Read more »

This boy is supposed to be the President. Cadets can say whatever but his speech at gymkhana was the best. It reminded me of Kamuzu.

Chilima is just a cunning theatrical guy. He had a plan this day, let me move the unsuspecting Malawians. Got a flag just as he does with bags of fertilizer and then with passion managed to deliver an epic speech. I bet he has nothing left up his sleeves in as far as his theatrical prowess is concerned after pulling this one. My concern now is the reception. I fear mediocrity in Malawi is here to stay. This is simply an act by a propagandist and if this affects your ability to reason through his points all throughout then you… Read more »
