The ruling People’s Party provincial chair for the eastern region, Samson Msosa says President Joyce Banda has all the hallmarks that she was into power by God to rescue Malawians from the suffering which he says were inflicted upon them by the Democratic People’s Party (DPP) administration, saying “only God” could remove her from office.
Speaking during the rally at Mvimbo in the area of Senior Chief Makwangwala in Ntcheu district where President Banda was donating maize to the hunger-stricken residents, Msosa said the activities which President Banda is carrying out to assist the people attest to this.
“For example, yesterday the President was in Balaka doing the same and today she is here. There was nothing of the sort during the past administrations. This demonstrates that it is God who voted for President Banda to govern the country,” said Msosa.
Msosa took a swipe at former administration of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and the United Democratic Front (UDF) saying they were only stealing from people and cheating people respectively whenever they were conducting political rallies.
“During the MCP administration it was the people who were giving cattle to the president while during UDF rule, trucks loaded with maize were returning with maize without distributing to the needy. This is the opposite of what president Banda is doing,” said Msosa who held a similar position in the UDF when it was ruling.
In her speech President Banda also concurred with Msosa, saying it was indeed God who voted for her.
“I have done a lot to assist people thorough Mudzi Trust. Ask people in Ndirande at Malabada and Misesa, Chisitu in Mulanje, Chiwalo in Mphalombe, Malaka in Nsanje, I have built houses for the needy there,” she said.
Banda said she will still be visiting and assisting the needy by providing them with whatever they may need.
She said those who are speaking against her good gesture towards the needy are just doing this because of panic as “they have nothing to offer Malawians.”
