SKC the man who changed Malawi’s politics, the story of February 3

Today marks exactly one year after the Constitutional Court nullified the 2019 elections citing massive irregularities and fraud.

Chilima and Chakwera petitions led the court to nullify presidential election

The ruling meant that the election of president Peter Mutharika had been set aside and that a fresh election would follow which was eventually won by President Lazarus Chakwera who led the Tonse Alliance with Saulos Chilima as running mate and now Vice President again

Whether the Tonse Alliance is performing or not that’s a story for another day but the verdict out there is that the country, like a plane, took off with a trainee pilot and we are not sure if we will land or clash.

However, whether you love or loath him but on this day respect has to be given to Chilima. He fought this and won.

While Malawi Congress Party (MCP) was calling for a recount of the votes which was ‘madness’, Chilima fondly called as ‘SKC’ called for nullification and stalemate of the vote to start a fresh election while warning in a letter dated 25 May, 2019 that ” we should not allow fraudsters to continue holding this country at a ransom.”

While people called him all sorts of names and desperate but SKC taught us the power of resilience, faith and the need not to accept the status quo.

Before SKC, the song was that in Malawi once a President is sworn in, nothing can happen to change the outcome.

For today please spare a moment and show some respect to SKC. He is dangerously quite though. Please MCP do not provoke him.

MCP is busy politicking four years to the election – so immature and insecure. Remember that SKC will only need five months to change whatever you are doing now like secretly funding Aford to be political mercenaries.

Chilima , twice has been a kingmaker, taking an opposition torchbearer to power. He did with Peter Mutharika from opposition to power and then Chakwera.

He would’ve still remained in DPP if Kaliati never woke him up. He would still be in DPP if Kalindo had never forced him to smell the opportunity. He would still be in DPP if Calister (Cornister) had never seen him as her way to pull one on APMs kids who she was wrangling with. He was so hesitant to leave DPP. It took him a long while, I mean awkwardly a long while to come out and stare his position after other individuals had finally managed to wake him up to the new opportunity. He is just a pure… Read more »

I dont think the writer of this story believes what he is saying. It looks he is just trying to create animosity between chakwera and chilima, mcp and utm with obvious intentions. And some of the detail is wrong, obviously intentionally. This is an example of journalism without ethics. Such a pity

Chilima is not a king maker, those are just views of those who lack critical thinking muscles. If that could be the case, then he could have been President himself with his utm in power during the 2019 tripartite elections. The fact that he is power hungry is an open secret and its very surprising that after his so called king making on Mutharika he can repeat it on Chakwera instead of, this time, making himself king. Tell me he is a master opportunist, then we will agree. The truth is MCP is a powerful party and could have won… Read more »

Osamabveka chisoti mutu wopanda nzeru. Chilima nde kanyama kanji, ntchito koma kanyamula matumba a fetereza ndi kupanga fizo pa nsanja basi? As rightly stated, how can a sane person be contented to propel others to the presidency? Let Chilima contest once more in 2025 and see how miserable he will be defeated. In all fairness, the blunders Chakwera is making involves both. Remember statements Chakwera made that APM ill-utilised him but he will use his experience; did he mean the nonsense we are seeing now? These two people are working as a pair but their performance and delivery of simple… Read more »

The Fact is that, and nkhani ndiyomveka bwino iyi yakuti SKC ndi Game Changer basi. No two ways about it. Without SKC LMC sanakakhala President.

Let’s focus on developing the country
You, Me,Chilima, Chakwera and them… May God frustrate the greedy…. may God help those that wish this country well to attain their dreams…. May each and everyone one of us do our part to change this country for the better( e.g no corruption, fraud, breaking the law or looking the other way while others are, being accountable, being of high integrity, seeing things beyond tribal lines, operating on merit based standards, general high standards to things etc) for the sake of our children and our children’s children…zinazi tichedwa nazo..

Analankhula kale Ben Mbewe kuti a DPP miseche yomwe amapangira Chilima ndi yomwe inawachosesa pa mpando it means without kuchoka ku DPP bwezi pano DPP ikanali m’boma komwe kwapita Chilima ndi kumene kumapita boma and palibe angasinthe zimenezi that guy is God sent ali ndi mphatso ina yake even Chakwera sanakawina mlandu without Chilima never that guy is an assets believe it or not Chilima is a King Maker and a Chakwera akachita za Pitala nawotso mudzawaona 2025 a kuzisiya if you want to become President stick to him and he will make you a President.

i don’t like divisive stories, leave TONSE alliance alone, this is not time for politicking, its time for fulfilling promises made in 2019 campaign period. since you seem to be chilima’s advocate, please ask him for me, ” kuti free water and electricity connection he promised was just a ploy or a hoax or a fools day parody?”
