Chilima told a mammoth crowd in Mwanza where he held a political rally on Friday under the banner of UTM that there is a plan by the ruling party  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government to assassinate him.

“Actually, I have seen one of the assassins at Tsangano. When he saw that I have seen him, he disappeared. Let me warn the intelligence agents and the Home Security ministry officials that I know that I am their target for assassination but they will not succeed, these are amateurs,” he said.

Chilima said it was a “fact” that he and UTM top brass are on a hit list, but said the source of the information was confidential.

He told the police in Lilongwe that they should not write him over the matter, saying he will not respond to the letter.

“I have the list of the assassins and I have shared it with my friends so that if anything happens to me, they should know who have done it,” he said.

The UTM leader said he has credible information that the DPP has hired assassins from within Malawi to assassinate him through poison, staged accident or bullet.

“People like John Chilembwe shed their blood for the good of Malawi and I am ready to die for my Malawi. They can kill us and eat our flesh anywhere they want. After all, they are known for killing those with dissenting views,” he said.

Chilima also said he is vying for the presidency in order to stem graft, nepotism, tribalism, regionalism, cronyism, favouritism, plunder of public resources, arrogance and impunity.

He received an outstanding ovation throughout out his speech.

Wapenga uyu. He knows that he is going to loose but at the same time he is failing to engage himself in a reverse gear for fear of his followers.

Mr Chilima, As much as I criticise how you are doing things I don’t condone killing anybody. I am a Malawian and every Malawian has freedom and the right to participate in the development of Malawi in the way they see fit. when it comes to presiding over Malawi, and I want you to note here that presidents don’t rule Malawi they direct Malawi, They are not Kings they are servants of the people! You can preside Malawi as long as your intention is to help Malawi and it’s people and it is right that this should remain Malawi’s choice.… Read more »

Thus why the wanted you to resign so you be vulnerable! The had a motives all along reducing the security details. If they can burn UTM vehicles you bet they will kill you cause they don’t wanna lose and face jail thus the point! The corruption is far deep then Malawians think in Dpp led govt. if the big man is on it hence thugs reshuffled at homeland security leaves a-lot to be desired. Dpp is the new ISIS!

Saulosi, Saulosi so you saw your would be assassin and let him go scot free? What a missed opportunity to get political mileage out this incident. If it were me I would have apprehended him and bring him on the mic to confess and tell the whole world who sent him. But your acting the Jesus method by letting the would be betrayer, Judas, kiss you is fruitless because Jesus was certain about his resurrection while you will go for good.
