Nankhumwa: Kept people waiting for him for hours

The function could not be started on time as Ntcheu District Commissioner, Smart Gwedemula  and  officials were kept on waiting to receive the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development  Nankhumwa .

Nankhumwa, the strongman in DPP, did not apologise for coming late and keeping people waiting for long  at  the seat of the Njolomole chieftaincy at Mtchakhata.

The new T/A Njolomole has been installed to take over from Frackson Njolomole, who died at the age of 89 in 2016.

The minister could not be contacted for comments. However, his aide said he was a very busy person.

On Wednesday, Nankhumwa also  installed Traditional Authority Kalolo to become the senior chief.

Kalolo, born Guilford Mpinganjira was installed as T/A Kalolo  where  Senior Chief Lukwa represented, His Majesty the Chewa King Kalongo Gawa Undi.

Independent deplomat I think ndiwe wakuba ngati Chimanga Chaponda. Why accusing the innocent leader of Malawians. This was official duty and he Nankhumwa diary it to officially install the chief why reporting on duty late. Rubbish palibe boma apa boma likubwera 2019. Chilima did the same Goodal was very late during one of meeting at BICC. Anthu akuba kudana ndi chilungamo munya muona.


A che Watipa uku ndiye kuzipukuta popanda madzi. Chakwera wake uti amene mukuona ngati angadzawieyo? Kodi opposition mudakalibe mtulo? 2019 kudzakhalatu DPP nyenyanyenya mwa chakwanu leka so that the vocal PAC, CSOs, MLS and Opposition should relocate to where they belong best.

Independent Diplomat

The MCP has never had a foolish leader like Reverend Chakwera in its History. If they do not remove him at the convention, MCP WILL STAY FOR ANOTHER 100 YEARS BEFORE IT RULES Malawi again..


What diplomacy is this? The so called PM has ethos and moral grounds to keep people waiting. Time is money. That must stop athe once


amwene Ochakwela odangolawililako, do your background check event inali yoyamba 1.. mwambo wanji okweza mfumu unayambapo 8? leave Nankhumwa alone!!!!


He should have sent word to alert the waiting delegates that he would be delayed. It is unacceptable and disrespectful. To add salt to the wound, he went on business as usual without apologising to the waiting crowd. People would have used the 3 hours productively had they known that he would be delayed. Reforms must start at the top and in the mind.


This is the creation of MCP. MCP President Rt Hon. Chakwera arrived at 7 in the morning for a function that would start at 1 PM. He is one who is bitter and has unleashed his gang of propagandists to tarnish the image of the minister who arrived at the event exactly 5 minutes past 1. Indeed, politics is a dirty game! But spare innocent people from such mischievous acts bwana Leader of Opposition. I was there and greeted you. A nice man indeed at face value but dirty inside


God has blessed MCP and time has come for malawians to be lead by GOD’s servant. Chakwera chiyembekezo cha ife achinyamata
