Chilima: In talks with Manganya

There have been reports that Chilima and Manganya have been in talks to work together in the next year’s elections.

Speaking to reporters in Blantyre on Thursday, Usi who is a developmental specialist by training confirmed the talks.

“Yes we are discussing with SKC (Chilima) and we are on one mission,” said Usi who is leading Odya Zawo Alibe Mlandu network.

He said: “Malawians must know that we are in talks but it will be premature at this moment for me to disclose what we are discussing. But it is for the good of this nation and nay time we will tell Malawians.”

Usi is aspiring to contest the Mulanje Central parliamentary seat which is currently held by Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa.

Chilima is yet to come clear on his 2019 political route map but has openly said Malawi will continue to pay huge economic costs of moral decadence unless citizens work together towards transformation.

He recently announced his decision to quit as a Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) member and will not seek re-election on Peter Mutharika’s ticket.

Chilima  also stated that he would not challenge Mutharika at the DPP convention, nor will he attend the convention scheduled this weekend in Blantyre.

Dare vote Chilima and see. You will even wish APM had continued. I urge you Malawians to rally behind MCP’s Chakwera. By the way, have you heard of the Mk145,000,000 and what are you making of it? Do you still remember of the guy who bought bicycles, an ambulance and many other items for his constituency valued at over 21,000,000 Mk. What do you make of it?

Dont boooo!!!! Vote wisely!! Vote Chakwera!!! Vote MCP!!!

The problem is Chakwera has paired up with a wrong person, Mia! No more Islam ruling Malawi again. Asilamu mix politics and religion.

I saw a stage for drama where Manganya played running mate to Chilima….How did it end? they almost made it, but oH!!!! try again next time! Baba this is Government, not zisudzo. Too much zining’a cannot address our problems in Malawi. We need direct talk and come out of the bedroom and face the weather!

It is funny that you expect corrupt free Malawi with Chilima. Do you know Chilima? Mafia style guy. Do your research

I can just imagine Chilima, as a president, hiding at State House as the country is burning; once in a while issuing zining’a over the radio (from the state house studios). This man has no gravity, no clarity of message, no charisma, no ability to connect with grassroots level electorate, no serious money or financial backing, no constituency, no credible party to work with. This is why even comedians think they have a chance to work with him (Chilima). He thinks he is a joke.

These two guys should not rush for power or to form their own party what they should do is to join powerful opposition party like mcp and automatically will be part of cabinet ministers of mcp government 2019 ,then come 2024 these guys at mcp convention can contest on party president or vice president thus my advice

Which opposition should they join? The one headed by pastor Chakera is useles. Chakwera has proved to be a failed man. He smells failure. He voted yes for MPs to share that 4 bilion then turned and joined demonstrations against the same thing he supported in parliament. This man is shameless maggot who should never rule this country.

If the agenda is to unseat DPP then you are wasting your time. Those people who know how to analyze events can tell you how the Chilima movement has suffered two technical knockouts on Thursday, 28 June 2018. That was a precursor of what will happen in May 2019.
Muzikanganira u leader of opposition chifukwa the ruling party after May 2019 is already defined and that is DPP. If you want to unseat anybody then unseat MCP as leader of opposition so that MCP becomes a minority party within opposition.

How I wish I had the remote of time so that I could “fast-forward” the political events “pause” where ever necessary and “stop in 2019 after Elections. The twist of events sounds funny and awkward each passing day
