It is clear, even to primary pupils that political campaign ended once we unanimously ushered in the new administration in the name of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP). Having given them the mandate to run the country, all what Malawians would expect is nothing but turning their dreams they touted during the campaign into reality.
I must admit here, if education is a prerequisite for sound leadership, DPP would produce wonders. It is a party full of people with an assortment of degrees. Surprisingly, the party has let some “good-for-nothing” officials controlling the affairs of the party. No wonder, one Saulos Chilima who proved to have the gift of the gab, thought it wise to discipline the party zealots in public at the so
called development rally in Ndirande. Kaliati and company should take what the VP said with a pinch of salt.
I would want to tell you DPP gurus, that castigating Reverend Dr. Lazarus Chakwera will bring nothing to the people who are suffering in villages. Your accusation that Chakwera left the pulpit to join politics to advance selfish ambitions is not holding water. After all, people would wish to be ruled by man of God as compared to an atheist.
One DPP outspoken lady reached an extent of saying, “I will start preaching after politics”. Are you trying to imply politics is for evil minded people? You mean DPP is for only evil minded people?
Come back to your senses Madam Kaliati and your company. Your empty speeches during the so called development rallies, are increasingly bringing the president’s professorial title into disrepute. Yes, whatever, you speak has a blessing from the MG 1, we firmly assume.
As Maggaret Thatcher once said “I am in politics because of the conflict between good and evil, and I believe that in the end good will triumph.”
I’m also made to believe that the same driving force, could prompt Reverend Chakwera to join politics. And again, attacking his personality just shows that the man has something special which
threatens the incumbent.
We know pretty well that Chakwera is not ruling the country, so if something goes wrong, Malawians will not hold him responsible. If Chakwera criticizes your administration, he is doing that as a citizen and politician who is able to differentiate between good and evil. The best answer to his criticisms is just doing the needful.
Honestly, I always feel sorry for your accusations because they are always devoid of clarity and reasoning. Your critics seem to use the brain, and the mouth is just an outlet, while your accusations are just unnecessary noise from the esophagus.
Who told you that politics and God are incompatible missed the point! Why did you call Bishop Mark Kambalazaza to give a prayer at your rally? Your answer is as good as mine; asking God’s presence. So I don’t see any problem for a man of God to join mainstream politics. In fact I regard you political leaders as people who carry an incredible weight of responsibility not only as a steward of our nation and its resources, but as a steward of God’s desires. That is why I insist, your feeding frenzy on “Laza” is all Greek to me.
We have been struggling as a nation; political leadership has been a problem, but I believe that with men of God joining the race, a fresh approach will prevail and we will advance peace, stability, equality and prosperity as these are the people who are acquainted with the God’s desires.
And for sure, they will see people as God see people, they will rejoice at the things that make God rejoice and their hearts will break with the things that break God’s heart.
The Bible clearly states that, “For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.” So if God chooses leaders, can He fail to choose people who served him diligently to lead His people? That is why, I conclude by saying that baseless and wild accusations against the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) President Lazarus Chakwera, is in itself a mark of a failed
leadership on the part of DPP.
