MCP says Malawians best judges on who between Mutharika and Chakwera should qualify for mental examination

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has faulted President Peter Mutharika for attacking leader of opposition in Parliament Lazarus Chakwera, suggesting that he  is mentally unstable and should undergo psychiatric evaluation, saying the citizenry should make their own choice who should quality for mental examination.

Mkaka: Did Chakwera lie when he said Mutharika is massaging corruption even at State House?

Mutharika speaking at Kasungu Boma during his road trip from Mzuzu in the Northern Region to his base in the capital city, Lilongwe, said: “I want to write the Speaker that perhaps ‘this man’ should be sent to Kamuzu Central Hospital [so] that his head should be tested to understand why he is speaking that way.

“It is embarrassing that a man who wants to become President of this country should speak so childishly and like a mentally challenged person.”

But MCP second deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka described Mutharika’s remarks as unfortunate and regrettable.

Mkaka told Nyasa Times on Monday that Malawians who have been subjected to untold misery are best judges as to whether Chakwera who is speaking the truth on their behalf qualifies for psychiatric attention.

“We wonder as to who should qualify for a psychiatric attention between the State President and the Leader of Opposition,” said Mkaka.

“Is telling the truth equivalent to mental disorder?  Did Chakwera’s lie when he said Mutharika has broken lies all over him?  Did Chakwera lie when he said Mutharika mishandled the maize export ban?,” wondered Mkaka.

The remarks Chakwera made in Parliament last Monday, which apparently irked the President were: “The fact is that we Malawians are in the unenviable position of having a President and an Executive so incompetent at leading and so insensitive to the suffering of the people they govern that whenever any of us speaks here, we must speak not on behalf of our political parties, but at the behest of Malawians.”

Chakwer also made allegations of corruption and theft and wealth amassed by some Cabinet ministers and aides in his administration.

Mkaka said the MCP president  dared the President with objective facts on his statement.

“Did Chakwera lie when he said Mutharika is massaging corruption even at State House? Chakwera went a step further to give evidence of the rot in the ESCOM generator deal. Instead of condemning this he chooses to keep quiet,” said Mkaka.

He continued: “Well, if telling the truth is tantamount to mental disorder, then Chakwera qualifies for mental hospital.”

Speaker of Palrimanent Richard Msowoya, Chakwera’s first vice-president in MCP, on Friday  ruledthat the leader of opposition’s remarks that “the President is incompetent and insensitive” be struck off the Hansard—the official record of proceedings in the National Assembly.

Mutharika and Chakwera are likely to be main contenders for the  2019 Tripartite Elections .

MCP claimsMutharika won fraudulently against Chakwera in the May 20 2014 Tripartite Elections.

People are talking as if it is only DPP or the President who has seen mucous in Chakwera’s speech. Where do you put the Speaker’s order of not including abusa’s insane speech in the hansard?

Chakwera will never rule malawi

Chakwera will never rule malawi

Chakwera, the dirty new broom which is failing to sweep smartly, desperate to rule, he has resorted to develish and unchristian language, man of collar, slow down. The more you use angry and abusive language the more Malawians are realising that you want power due to bitterness and not necessarily to help Malawi. Hang with your bitterness while Malawi seeks solutions to its problems. After all there is nothing you have said you will bring other than american accent. Your nonsense MUST STOP.

DPP are thieves and the president himself is the prince of thieves as said by the genius Chakwera. This pathological liar is taking us to great sufferings.

The whole MCP leadership is mentally challenged, including its followers. Making blunders out of hate and njala yofuna kulamulira dzikoli. Wait for 2019 when you will know the truth.
