Mchacha rewarded with Cabinet appointment for slut-shaming women

The overzealous ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) regional governor for the South, Charles Mchacha, has impressed  President  Peter Mutharika for his foul mouthing of opposition UTM party and slut-shaming women associated with it as he  has  now been appointed Deputy Minister of Homeland Security   which also includes Department of Disaster Management Affairs (Dodma).

Loudmouth Mchacha gets appointment as Deputy Minister

The Cabinet list released by the Office of President and Cabinet and signed by the Chief Secretary to the Government Lloyd Muhara shows that Mutharika has appointed  Mchacha in his 20-member Cabinet after a reshuffle on Wednesday.

Mchacha, who is also Thyolo West legislator, is returning as deputy minister after he once served as deputy minister of finance  at the same time he  was sitting his Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) during the tenure of late president Bingu wa Mutharika.

But his appointment now comes hot on the heals of his rant that all women who are not in DPP, but with other parties particulary the UTM, are ‘mahule’ (whores).

Mchacha in his recent outburst on Sunday in Ndirande during a DPP rally addressed by the party’s vice president (Southern Region) Kondwani Nankhumwa, attacked members of Vice President Saulos Chilima’s UTM as thieves, promiscuous and satanic.

He has not been reprimanded and has miantaied that being a whore is one of the criteria for joining UTM.

Commentators have said  Mchacha’s  appointment in Cabinet is the highest symbol of approval he  has got for his loudmouth.

Posting on Facebook, commentator Idriss Ali Nassah wrote: “ It’s now clear that the nonsense that Charles Mchacha spews is actually with the approval and encouragement of his boss, President Peter Mutharika.

“Just days after labeling all women who legitimately exercise their right to support a political party of their choice as ‘prostitutes’, Mchacha has been awarded with a ministerial post. In Mchacha, Peter has found a useful idiot. The appointment is also a signal that the DPP has decided to abandon any pretense of decency and values.”

Nassah continued: “With no more ideas left to give, the panicky President has morphed into a shameless phallocentric who subscribes to, and approves of, the politics of vulgarity, misogyny and violent hate.”

Other have accused Mchacha of acting against the current  national discourse  about encouraging women to meaningfully participate in politics—and that  turning women’s sexuality into a weapon against them is scaring women away from participating in politics.

In the new Cabinet, the other  two new faces are Phalombe East member of  Parliament (MP) Alex Mailosi as Deputy Minister of Defence and Chitipa South MP Welani Chilenga.

Mr Muheya just do us a favour & do a little bit of investigative journalism to find out if Mchacha indeed wrote on his own MSCE? 8fenso it’s not certain teachers who sat on his behalf. Check it thoroughly the answers are written all over in the sky.

As various commentators have always stated about APM, our President is clueless when it comes to leadership. You remember that leaked phone conversation between Jeffrey and Nankhumwa where the former was asking the latter to drop Henry Mussa from cabinet? At first it was Ben Phiri as the power behind the throne, now it is Nankhumwa. This cabinet reshuffle is the handwork of Kondwani Nankhumwa. Clueless, incompetent APM just rubber-stamped it. De jure, the most powerful man in the land is APM; de facto it is Nankhumwa as things stand at this moment.

In all this demeaning of women the questions that some of us are asking are ” where is Emie Kaliya; where is Seodi White , where is PAC, where are the two episcopal churches : Catholic and Anglican ; where are Livingstonia and Nkhoma synods, never mind Blantyre synod and PIM; , where is MAM ( Muslim association of Malawi; where is the donor community who are ploughing so much resources into women agenda and discourse while they fold their hands when the same woman are being demeaned ; I can go on and on. What has come abundantly clear… Read more »

Demeaning of women is happening in our houses and communities. We often forget this. Mchacha is product of the mysogynistic and bigoted society we live in. In fact, most of the people (men) demeaning women everyday are doing worse things than what Mchacha is saying. Stop sensationalising political issues.
