Mutharika barnstorms Lhomwe belt again, cools off from Chilima movement attacks

President Peter Mutharika on Tuesday had a second whistle-stop political campaign tour in the Lhomwe belt to drum up the  dwindling support for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) as the rebellious Chilima Movement is giving the President a run for his money.

Mutharika was supposed to go to Mathambi in Mulanje but rains prevented him from proceeding with the tour therefore he had to detour to Phalombe where he had impromptu rallies and the final stop was Chiradzulu.

The political tone on the messages to the people by Mutharika has changed from confrontational to strictly campaign, marketing the President and the DPP ahead of the 2019 polls.

So far, Mutharika, secretary general Grazider Jeffrey and regional governor Charles Mchacha have avoided mentioning names of the Chilima movement following a backlash on Saturday.

The Chilima movement is penetrating in the Lhomwe belt, the DPP stronghold in the south.

EEKikikikiki these are not bright signs for DPP. Mr Chilima will drop the final straw on the back of the party in 46 minutes time today. Mark my word as I write this. Is this the reason we are in blackout in order not to hear the message

Has MEC declared the campaign or its its just phwanyaphwanya? Maybe MEC is toothless as well

Did you need any proof that DPP is a lhomwe party? Mutharika is spending sleepless nights. But power is slipping away from him. They can’t think of any other person from somewhere to be the leader of DPP.


Is Chakwera from the Southern or Northern region? Why hasn’t MCP chosen a presidential candidate from the South and the North. Stupid argument.


Well just as AFORD is a tumbuka party, UDF a yao party, MCP a chewa party. so now shut the fuck up!


2019 bomaaaaaaaa tikunyenyanyenyani


she looks miserable.




Too little too late!
