Mutharika’s security aide Chisale addresses DPP political rally, speaks on Chilima Movement

In a very rare twist of events as some members of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)  of the so-called Chilima Movement are canvassing for the presidential candidacy of Vice-President Saulos Chilima and others support the incumbent President Peter Mutharika,   one of the people close to Mutharika and long time security aide and confidente Norman Chisale has warned people in Ntcheu not to be swayed by  what he called frustrated politicians from the southern region who are trying to use the Veep as a bargaining tool and pawn  in their political survival tactics.

Norman Chisale addresses a DPP political gathering in Ntcheu

Chisale: Chilima has not said he wants to run for presidency

Chisale is the Director of Security for State Residences and started serving the Mutharika’s during late Bingu wa Mutharika’s time.

This was the first time ever for  Chisale,  who has a military background,  to addresss a DPP political gathering.

It was not clear in what capacity he was making the address but he informed the meeting that although he does not hold any position in the DPP, he  wanted to address the gathering in his personal capacity after noting that four DPP senior members whom he said all came from the Lhomwe belt are misleading some people in Ntcheu for personal gains.

Chisale comes from Ntcheu.

“These people have thier own issues. And they are putting words in Saulos Chilima’s mouth. They want to use him. If they honestly want to replace President Mutharika in the DPP party, why are they dragging Saulos Chilima into their plan?. Why can’t they choose the replacement from amongst themselves”? wondered Chisale.

The lanky security man  told the crowd that he works with both President Mutharika and Chilima in the Presidency and as far as he in concerned the two individuals work together and their relationship is cordial.

“It’s is these four or five people Patricia Kaliati, Bon Kalindo  and two or three others that are dragging the Vice President name and the people of Ntcheu into thier personal project . Lets not get involved. They should not use us,” Chisale retorted.

Chisale informed the crowd that in less than two weeks time   there shall be political developments which shall expose the so called Chilima Movement agitators as opportunits who have dragged the name of the VP in mud without his involvement in their dealings.

He said Chilima had a great political future in DPP but he feared that there is a conspiracy among some south based politicians to destroy him by igniting a fued between him and his President.

Chisale stressed that Mutharika will be DPP torchbearer in 2019 elections.

The statements by  has left many wondering whether he had the blessing of his boss to make them or that he embarked on a solo project for his own reasons.

Former first lady Callista Mutharika—widow of Bingu who was the incumbent President’s elder brother—sparked the succession debate weeks ago when she said her in-law, 79, should pave the way for the comparatively youthful and energetic Chilima, 45.

Besides Kaliati and Kalindo, several DPP NGC members and legislators, including Noel Masangwi (Blantyre City East and NGC member), Allan Ngumuya (Blantyre City South), Malison Ndau (Ntcheu Central), Paul Chibingu (Mwanza West), national director of youth Louis Ngalande and suspended deputy regional governor (North) Afiki Mbewe have openly supported Chilima’s candidacy.

Other legislators in Chilima Movement are Joseph Chidanti Malunga and Willet Kalonga.

Mlonda stopano. I don’t get surprised why the police are kept in small houses. They back or protect evil politicians and given meagre salaries. You shall remain their mlonda chisale.

Chisale you have spoken well. Let the sons and daughters of Ntcheu know that these are disgruntled bunch of people who are hiding under the name of Chilima. Only Prof. Mutharika knew about Chilima when he picked him. So many political parties in Malawi but none thought of Chilima. We are grateful to Mutharika that he is grooming a future leader and we don’t want spoilt brats to spoil his destiny. Hands off from Chilima, don’t bring sour grapes between them, but one thing is certain the devil will be shamed soon.

Isn’t there any possibility that He Chilima is also among the disgruntled. Why isnt he exonerating himself from what the group is saying about him? Is it not surprising?
