Muluzi congratulates Malawi president-elect Chakwera, VP Chilima

Malawi’s former president Bakili Muluzi has congratulated President-elect Dr Lazarus Chakwera  following his victory in the presidential elections.

Muluzi to Chakwera: Congratulations are in order

Chakwera defeated incumbent Peter Mutharika with 58.57% of the vote in Tuesday’s  court-sanctioned fresh presidential poll.

For the first time, the winner needed over 50%  of the votes to avoid a run-off election

The new president is expected to be sworn in on Sunday.

Muluzi reportedly phoned Chakwera to congratulate him and has also delivered a written message.

According to a statement, the former president said he wishes Chakwera and vice-president Saulos Chilima “all the best as they take the mantle of serving the people of Malawi.”

For the re-run, Chakwera obtained the high-profile support of Vice President Saulos Chilima, former president Joyce Banda and  other small political parties including former human rights firebrand activist turned politician Timothy Mtambo.

Bullshit Muluzi your son under your guidance and advise has been saying ‘this is the worst conducted election ever’. You sadly are the cause of our nation’s suffering and poverty.

I concur with you Dr. Fletcher Phiri.
Bakili Muluzi sold and destroyed all that Dr. Kamuzu Banda left.

Malawi has been in abject poverty, with extreme and appalling levels of dilapidation mainly because of Bakili Muluzi.

On another note, I must say that I remember you Dr. Fletcher Phiri. We used to meet at your office in Hammersmith around 2006, at the NAZI project workshops.

Muli bwanji Wawa?

I wonder where you are nowadays, but I am still in North London.

Thanks for all the support and guidance you used to give us.

May God bless you.

Isn’t this the same Bakili Muluzi who made it sure that the presidency should not leave the Southern region? Atupele would have paired with Chakwera but because Muluzi did not want Chakwera to be president because he is from the Central region he advised his son to pair with APM, his fellow southerner. His son would have been state veep if it were not for the regional card being played. Khawu. Wagwa nayo Tcheya.
