State funded FND hit at Chilima, Callista Mutharika: Demand their resignation

Forum for National Development (FND) which is reportedly being bankrolled by the regime, has asked State  Vice President Saulos Chilima and former First Lady Madam Callista Mutharika to resign from their respective offices.

Speaking to reporters in Lilongwe the Forum coordinator Fryson Chodzi said Callista Mutharika has been receiving salary without going to work as coordinator of Safemotherhood.

“We would like to remind Madam Calista Mutharika that receiving a salary and benefits without work is indistinguishable theft and plunder of public resources. As such she has been stealing from the government and poor Malawians and she can do us a favour by returning the money and benefits she has been receiving if she has to be taken seriously as a person who wish Malawi well,” said Chonzi

Chonzi saidthose who comes with equity must come with clean hand.

“She has no moral ground to hold anybody accountable when she has been abusing the same system.”

Chodzi said FND also finds the continued holding on to the position of the Vice Presidency by Chilima as odd considering how holding on to such position contradicts the message he has been conveying to the public.

“Notably, Hon. Chilima has persistently talking  about performance based reward and remuneration as key for transformation of the country, yet here is a person who will spend the next 10 months being paid and living on state coffers without any performance,” said Chodzi.

He said contradictory, Chilima has time and again accused politicians of ‘personification and glorification of leaders’ and as good as that might sound, himself is reveling within the same personification and glorification as evidenced by how the United Transformation Movement has been coined and formed.

“ The whole movement is all about him. The movement is about SKC. The branding is about him and not a single day has he stood up to accuse the Movement of glorifying him. It seems to us that as he is talking against personal glorification, he is at the same time enjoying the same just as any other politician would.”

Additionally,.Chilima has expressed discomfort by politicians for letting women dance for them yet in all the meetings for his so called movement, women are dancing in glorifying him and not once has he stood to accuse them.

“This is paradoxically a huge contradiction on his part,” said Chodzi.

He said the most arduous thing is that the Chilima Movement dubs him as the ‘Only Hope for Malawi’this is strange and highest order of personal glorification and at worst this is dictatorship in making.”

Most governments, which I assume Malawi as well, have lifetime benefits for former presidents, vps, and their families. If Malawi has this clause somewhere, Chilima and Calista will continue to enjoy the benefits including salaries for the rest of their lives. Both Bakili Muluzi and Joyce Banda still get paid to this day. Chilima has been stripped off all his duties by the undemocratic DPP because he is against them forgetting that he is the president of the country not the Lhomwe party. Why do you think almost everyone wants to be either president or vp? Ask people like Msowoya,… Read more »

If indeed Callista is being paid d without putting in any work then the government should be put to task as to why it is not doing its job by firing her. How many more are ghost workers then. In any case there are so many senior servants who aren’t working but are on full salary. These people either don’t deliver on what they were employed to do or are forever using govt resources to run their private businesses. These include PS. We are all paying the President and he won’t performing.

The FND is simply exposing the government on how it is abusing our hard earned money zomwe MRA ikutifinya daily. Let’s assume Calister was still supporting this government I don’t think tinakaziwa. Ine ngati sindikupita kuntchito what I know employer is supposed to hold on to my salary because I am not working. Again employer is suppose to fire me. Koma here they are trying to push the blame to only madam. As for the VP vuto ndi anthu imwe akufuna abuse yazinthu izipitilira. Now because VP akususa amuyika Pa bench pomulanda ntchito. We know this is very common at… Read more »

Cashgate, I am told, was a term given to monetary transactions where people were being paid without delivering any goods or rendering any service. If indeed one is getting money without working how different is that from cashgate?
Fryson and team congratulations for seeing what opposition funded CSOs are not seeing. Next time tackle the maula house. You are the hope of Malawi from the CSO fraternal.

This is also a dubious grouping, if Callista is receiving salary while she is not going to work, then who is not doing his/her job here? What does employment act says on absconding of duties without a reason? SKC came into power just because of the voters, some people voted for DPP because of the Veep so if you want this dude to resign, then the call has to come from two-thirds of the 2014 General Elections voters, not just a team of three people (Malawi has a population of more than 17million), otherwise let him finish his term.
