Kabwila: Kaliati needs to go for an IQ check

The call was made by MCP spokeswoman Jessie Kabwila at a news conference held in Lilongwe on Wednesday.

Kabwila accused Kaliati of making crass remarks against leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera at a ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rally in Thyolo at the weekend.

She claimed Kaliati who spoke at the rally attended by President Mutharika and beamed on tax –funded MBC television, referred to Chakwera as a biblical figure, Lazarus who was raised from the dead, and should wait for next life to govern Malawi.

Kabwira appealed to Mutharika to consider cabinet reshuffle and drop Kaliati, saying her conduct will “decampaining him.”

The MCP spokeswoman said Kaliati need to go for “an IQ check.”

Said Kabwila: “Can she [Kaliati] hold a ministry if the best she can do is to insult people?”

Kabwila said DPP is resorting to insulting political opponents because they have failed to govern and that “they were not the people who were elected by Malawians.”

Presidential spokesman Gerald Viola has since dismissed the call for cabinet reshuffle, saying it will not be entertained by President Mutharika.

Viola also backed Kaliati, saying she was only expressing her concerns and opinion.

He countered Kabwila by saying that the MCP spokesman is the most foul-mouthed politician than Kaliati.

This Kabwira and her fellow UNIMA lecturers treat us as their class babies who have no say in whatever they speak. They want to accuse and their accusations go without any critique whether true or false. They think APM is just as dull as JB, who can easily get twisted in his mind. Soon after JB took office the class of Kabwira’s (with her 4 stupid lecturers + stupid CSOs) ordered JB to remove Kaliati and Mukhito because Kaliati was answering to their ranting and the guy summoned B. Chinsinga on his stupid lecture he gave the other day in… Read more »
