SKC to drag Malawi leader Mutharika, Muluzi to international criminal court in The Hague

Vice President Saulos Chilima has said he has instructed lawyers to file for prosecution of Malawi President Peter Mutharika and former president Bakili Muluzi before the international criminal court in The Hague over political violence and crimes against humanity.

Chilima – fervently called SKC – said this at Namadidi in Zomba on Saturday during a televised political campaign for the fresh presidential elections.

He is the running mate of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential hopeful Lazarus  Chakwera in the nine party grouping called Tonse Alliance.

Chilima said  failed political leaders are perpetuating political violence to postpone the forthcoming fresh presidential election.

“I have information that among the people sponsoring violence is former president Dr Bakili Muluzi.

“He has paid people to attack me when I go to Mangochi and even kill me and one such person hired to attack me is a Mr Mtenje,” said Chilima.

Chilima said he is now going to the International Criminal Court to complain against politically motivated violence in the country.

In an interview with reporters after the rally, Chilima confirmed that he will file a case at The Hague court.

“ We are proceeding to international court of justice,” said Chilima.

During the interview, Chilima said it is time that the international court deal with President Peter Mutharika, former president Muluzi and for their alleged crimes.

Chilima said the trend of international justice was to make sure that there is no impunity for rulers or government officials.

In his address during the rally, Chilima urged  people to vote wisely in the fresh  polls and bring about genuine change.

He also appealed people not to avenge violence that has so far been seen since the campaign started.

Has CHilima listed the violence that MCP and UTM have perpetrated since last year?

Which violence? Malawians themselves were telling the establishment that they needed change. If Chakwera was perpetrated any violence, your president would have used the apparatus of the law enforcement at his disposal to deal with him. As it is, he saw that Malawians themselves were not happy with. It worked. He now knows that people do not want him hence his delaying tactics in implementing court orders.

APM is planning to exterminate other tribes in Malawi. It is time his instructions to bomb and kill those against him is taken seriously before it is too late. A lot of lives could easily be lost on Malawi in the name of APM.

Chilima is sensible he knows what he is doing. I would have loved if Malawians could change our thinking (tribal politics) come up with developmental manifestos & implement them. Remember our development will depend on the way we think(creativity).

Chilima does NOT know what he is doing. The things he says and the tone of his voice shows a man who is bitter and distraught. ICC si court wamba. It’s jurisdiction does not include petty things that Chilima is talking about.

Chilima, ICC has competent judges that you cannot bribe like Andrew Nyirenda, Dingiswayo Madise, Ivy Kamanga, Mike Tembo, Anacklet Chipeta, Anthony Kamanga

Are you referring to the Banker who tried to bribe the judges? Last time I checked, it was your president and his party who tried to bribe judges. They failed miserably.

This Chilima Dude is crazy childish. Sometimes I wonder if he really is a rt VP candidate. He is a gifted public speaker ofcourse , but men, he overrates himself. He truly believes he is the only annointed one who can solve Malawi problems. He alone, nobody else is capable of redeeming the country from its current mess. Why does he wonna take fellow Malawians to Hague? For what? U cant sue someone based on what u think or hearsay. There is no evidence against Peter here. Anyway, Go ahead take them to ICC. We will also take u there… Read more »
