Opposition official tells govt to reverse decision to have Malawi mission in Jerusalem

An opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) official has told the government to reverse its decision to have the country’s foreign mission in Jerusalem.

Sheikh Imran Mtenje, who is DPP regional governor for East, said the government would be stalking Muslims in the country if it goes ahead to open an embassy in the disputed Jerusalem.

Palestine takes Jerusalem as its future capital city.

“Malawi should not be fuelling the enmity between Israel and Palestine,” he said.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Eisenhower Mkaka recently said the government is going ahead with plans to open the embassy in Jerusalem despite both the international and local uproar and criticisms.

During the same news conference, the party’s spokesperson Brown Mpinganjira said the Tonse Alliance government has not delivered on any of its campaign promises but is using state machinery to intimidate DPP supporters.

Mpinganjira, who was accompanied by party National Organising Secretary Chimwemwe Chipungu and Administrative Secretary Francis Mphepo, said former president Peter Mutharika’s bank accounts remain frozen although he has not been charged by any competent court and that to date, Mutharika does not have a government house or government vehicles as provided for by the laws of Malawi.

Mpinganjira claims all this is aimed at killing the DPP.

Fear not, go ahead. God of Abraham Issac and Jacob will crush out any obstacles. Our God is more powerful than that of Evil. Western Jerusalem belongs to Israel not other way round.

For a first it might be more important to sort out the existing Malawian embassies with professional and helpful staff and put systems in place that work.. The buildings in Brussels, Berlin and London can also use a face lift and some serious renovations.

Shouldn’t DPP and our Muslim brothers and sisters engage some Arab countries, such as Saudi Arabia, which have realised that ignoring Israel is a waste of time and have, therefore, decided to establish diplomatic relations with the Jewish state?
What I read from this is DPP fanning Moslems led violence. Fortunately Malawians know DPP’s weaknesses and will not take kindly any moves by the party to disrupt Tonse Alliance government’s efforts to build new Malawi.
