Mutharika blasts Chakwera: ‘MCP is a very brutal party’

President Peter Mutharika has blasted   opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president  Lazarus Chakwera for  using the plight of people with albinism for political mileage.

Mutharika:  Hits back at Chakwera

Speaking  at a whistle-stop tour  at Shoprite Roundabout  in Mzuzu on Tuesday, on return from Mzimba District where he commissioned a multi-billion dollar water Project, Mutharika said his administration has already started putting in place measures to protect people with albinism.

“Let us stop violence against people with albinism. We have already adopted a tracking device to protect thousands of people with albinism in the country.

“And we have a programme to put 43 albino youth into boarding school, to protect them. We are also including people with albinism in the Malata and Cement Subsidy  programme,”Mutharika said.

Mutharika, however,  criticized Chakwera who faulted the President for “sleeping on the job and being a coward” that the MCP leader is seeking cheap political popularity using   attacks on people with albinism.

He challenged Chakwera to  share his solutions with government than wait for three more  months until May, before providing solutions that could save lives of Malawians with albinism.

“There are some people who are politicizing the issue of people with albinism. Some people are saying that they have a solution for this issue , if  he [Dr Chakwera] has  a solution,  why not tell us now than wait for three months until May?

“ Alibe mfundo  [They are clueless].  You must stop this nonsense,” Mutharika said.

The President, also,  labeled  members of the opposition  as “clueless” on the development of Malawi for failing to respond to his calls to collaborate with the government in providing solution to Malawi’s development woes when he extended an olive branch after taking office in 2014.

In his re-election plea, Mutharika  also  labelled MCP as a brutal party that will kill  many people if voted back into power.

“MCP is a very brutal Pparty. If you vote for them on May 21, you will be choosing to go backwards.  On May 21 you can either choose light or darkness. MCP is clueless and if you vote for them, you are choosing darkness.  All  we are asking for is five more years so that we can continue these development projects that we are already
doing,” Mutharika said.

Before  President  Mutharika took the stage, Transport Minister Jappie Mhango promised Mutharika  massive votes  and a landslide win in the Northern Region in the May 21  Tripartite Elections.

“ Mr President, you will get all the votes here in the North. Others tried to hold a rally  here but they have failed because there were only a few people,  ”  Mhango said.

The meeting was also attended by DPP leaders including Presidential Advisor on Youth Affairs Simon Vuwa Kaunda, Minister of Sports Grace Chiumia and, Chiefs including; Traditional Authority  Kabunduli of Nkhata Bay, the representative of Chief Chikulamayembe of the Tumbuka and throngs of DPP supporters.

At the whistle-stop, the representative of the Tumbuka  Chief Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe,  praised Mutharika for  equitable distribution of development projects in the country and not sidelining the North.

President Mutharika who also announced that his government is scheduled to commence construction of  administration  houses for the Mombera University  in Mzimba District,  said that he will stay in the Northern Region until Saturday 9th March where he plans to commission several development projects including; the Karonga Water Supply Project and NkhataBay Water Project.

Mr Maliseche was shocked to observe that dpp has been rejected in the north and that research indicates that MCP is leading in the north.Out of anger and paranoia he decided to personally attack Chakwera who was not there when Dausi and Henry Mussa the former MCP youth league chairman were brutalising pple.This song has bn overplayed and won’t win u votes coz what is fresh in the mind of pple is the killing of albinos, Njauju murder, Chasowa assassination and the July 20 massacre of the northerners by the dpp regime.

And Buleya. He deliberately created a security system of past killers Jose, Dausi and Mchacha. Even the committee which was formed to discuss issues of people with albinism, the head is Ntaba past MCPdirty man.

Clueless is tantamount to lack of action on Albino killings. Failed squarely.

Are the cadets under mchacha who are terrorizing and maiming innocent people MCP members? . The 17 people who were massacred in July 2011 were they killed by MCP ?. Was chasowa killed by MCP ?. Was Issa njaunju killed by MCP ? . Are people with albinism being killed by MCP ? Come on old man. When you live in glass house don’t throw stones because people may retaliate ndiye paja simuchedw kulira threatening land tones of bricks on them. Mzimu ya abale Athu albino will haunt you. Mwapha ochuluka
