State House accuses Chilima of delivering a pack of falsehoods

The presidential press secretary and spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani  has faulted Vice-President Saulos Chilima for accusing  President Peter Mutharika of failing to curb political violence as the country moves towards the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections.

Kalilani: Let him be factual

Chilima, who is also president of UTM Party registered after he severed ties with the governing Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) last June, told a news conference at Bingu International Convention Centre in Lilongwe that DPP was sponsoring political terror.

But Kalilani said  Chilima  fell short of providing evidenceof his claims.

He accused Chilima of exploiting the violence for political gain and described his statement as a pack of falsehoods.

“I don’t agree that the President hasn’t condemned violence. He has strongly condemned the violence on several occasions on rallies and issued a strong worded violence. It is an unsubstantiated claim that the violence is being perpetrated by DPP cadets.

“No one has even identified those arrested in Mangochi as DPP cadets. Let him be factual or challenge what the police have said,” said Kalilani in quotes reported by The Nation newspaper.

During his  ddress that had people glued to Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) television and radio that aired it live, Chilima also challenged Mutharika’s claims that opposition parties have hired election rigging experts.

But Kalilani also said the President was within his rights to warn masterminds of the alleged vote rigging plot.

Kalilani said Chilima “cannot tell the President what to do. The government machinery will pounce on the rigging plot when it is necessary”.

Ironically, after being declared winner of the 2014 presidential race, Mutharika is on record to have dismissed his predecessor Joyce Banda’s claims that the election was rigged, telling British Broadcasting Corporation on May 22 2014: “I don’t see how an opposition party can rig elections.”

There was not falsehood in whatever Chilima said about the weaknesses and aloofness of Mutharika. He is not an effective and efficient leader. This man is not fit to be even a school headmaster. I don’t understand how he could lead a nation while before as Minister of Education he failed to rise up and sort out the dominant Chancellor College freedom of speech saga. He is a President in name only.

Your thinking is completely erred. Chilima has no IT degree. The man has an economics degree. Do your research and get your facts right

Arafat Hamdani Saulosi Chilima wasted the time of the republic using very arrogant and uncivilized language like “kuti ndale sizamabebe” is garbage from an opportunists, or President akuchita zachibwana. This is the bottom of ghetto language defining his deep-rooted arrogance, impunity and disrespect of others. Mwana ngwachibwanadi uyu. Bebe wonunkha mkaka.

All people working and who once worked for dpp are stupid. Chilima is stupid for failing short to condemn violence against a poor man who was beaten and poured used oil at at Malangalanga in August 2018. Chilima was showing off his catapult on the way to Mangochi. Brian Banda and George Kasakula condemned this but we took it lightly. Coming to dpp these guys are thugs. Chilima mention illegal number plates with “ana agogi” as a way of running away from police. Soe thugs put dpp regalia on the mirror to intimidate the police. This Kalilani and Alamu Pumani… Read more »
