Should Mutharika successor come from Thyolo? Who can pair with Chimulirenji: Have your say

In  four years time, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will have no choice but to choose a new person as its presidential candidate because President Peter Mutharika will have successfully completed his  constitutional two terms of office. As is always the case during times like these, there are names that are being  thrown in the air as possible candidates  to take over from Mutharika to be DPP leaderand the party’s torchbearer in the 2024 General Elections.

Ben Phiri:  Minister and Thyolo Central MP
Thom Mpinganjira: FDH boss
Kabambe: Reserve Bank of Malawi Governor

Among the names that are coming up are Minister of Local Government, Ben Phiri; former MP for Thyolo Thekerani,  Dr Allan Chiyembekeza; and  Reserve Bank Governor, Dr Dalitso Kabambe and FDH Bank owner Dr Thom Mpinganjira.

The common thread about these names is that they all come from Thyolo District where President  Peter Mutharika also comes from. His late brother, President Bingu wa Mutharika also came from Thyolo. Now the question that comes up is: should Malawi have another President from Thyolo?

In the case of eventuality like Mutharika decides to retire before the appointed time, state Vice President Everton Chimulirenji shall have to take over. Who, among these Thyolo ‘candidates’ would make a good Vice President?

Its a big NO! Mutharika should not be succeeded by another Lhomwe and not even another Thyolo homeboy for that matter! Eish! Alhomwe atikwana amangwetu, tione zina! Since 2004 we have had enough of Lhomwe rule, Malawi is for everyone and not Lhomwes only. As Malawians who want peace in this country, let us not vote another Lhomwe in 2024. This will help the Lhomwe tribe to find ways of surviving without government positions and contracts!!They should taste life outside government tidzaone kuti Mulhako uzizayenda bwanji!!

Very well as it is happening, this issue of succession in Dpp, will be the end of Dpp. Ask me why? That’s how UDF collapsed. There will be hand picking!
