Timely warning to Malawians from Sierra Leone

Omar Williams from Sierra Leone has this to tell Malawians:

I don’t think you guys know what you are playing with. You can call each other names and laugh about it now because some support DPP and some MCP or UTM, but, when you end up inciting hate here as I read through your posts here and a real civil war starts in your country you will regret what you are doing now.

Your religious and political leaders are trying to divide you between political lines and you are helping them do that rather than standing up and say we are all Malawians never mind our tribe, region or religion. That’s the only stand that will save your blessed nation. The foreign powers pushing the government to take certain decisions will abandon you when you start killing one another and reject you from running to their countries so be careful.

Our 11 year war in Sierra Leone was not even based on religious or tribal difference and see what we did to our country. The worst conflicts are those based on tribal and religious differences. See Central Africa, Bosnia, South Sudan and Rwanda. To have a better knowledge of this, please watch the documentary/movie called _”Hotel Rwanda”_ or _”Sometime in April”._ My heart bleeds when I read what you guys are saying because I know what this will lead to. _*You will be the losers all of you whether Christian, Muslim, Chewa or Lomwe.*_ Stand as one and save your nation together because you have only one Malawi that has the potential to lead Africa.”

That is a great article, mistakes from the past should not be repeated. We are greatfull that other countries care about us, and receive their positive thoughts as en encouragement to do better. It seems some people are skilled with machetes in Malawi, cutting vulnerable people for body parts, so no need for sofisticated weapons to start a civil war (Rwanda), may God and the people of Malawi prevent us from this disaster

It is unfortunate to be such damn brainless person. Do you think all countries that experienced wars were inherently warmongers? They were peaceful even more than malawi. But as situation worsened anthu ena ananyasidwa and got to the point of having nothing to lose . Their lives lost value. Imagine if you cant get a job you qualify for just for being of particular tribe or region . So malawi like all other countries can breed outrage in its people and drag them to a point where they feel that they have nothing to lose . Do you remember skc… Read more »

I am waiting for the civil war. There is a good reason they call it ‘civil’. Whoever came up with that name.

Civil war will be good for Malawi. Some people are taking things for granted. They think they own the country and everybody else is a tenant. DPP, thugs, afikapo and behave like cult leaders, drug mafias or tobacco farmers, we are all their servants, they can decide what part/ size of the cake to give us ( quote one lunatic Mphepo). They give influential positions to each other, win all government lucrative contracts, send their wives/ sons/ close relatives to embassies, they can loot government coffers as they wish, etc. Civil war should really come otherwise some people will continue… Read more »

Thanks so much but it’s our sincere pray that this does not happen to us here in Malawi – Malawians do not know how to fight/shot with a gun they like fighting with a hoe in their gardens, our differences are not all that big we just diffetr in politics and we tolarate each other in our religion everyone is free to go and worship at any time and at any place and we only feera God/Allah our creator. We do not easily accept foreign taboos or beliefs those that turnish the image of GOD/ALLAH e.g same sex marriages and… Read more »

I must agree. Politicians do this because it benefits them. Some people may take lightly, unfortunately others may not. We are all Malawians and outsiders view us as such let us learn to love and respect each other. no tribe is superior or inferior to the other. if we unite as a people and refuse to be divided by politics, media,religion, tribe etc Malawi can benefit. United we stand.

We thank him for the concern but Malawi has not reached that state. The problem are the old people in DPP who think they will die while in government posts.

Malawi will never have a tribal War. Even in the USA political parties are strong in different regions, Republicans predominantly in the South, Democrats in East and West coast. Stop spreading these false narratives, all over the world people vote based on regionalism, it’s unfortunate that our regions are divided based on tribes.

I feel like refusing to hear this message is just that we are close and very close to what the guy has said, that’s how it started. Is Malawi America? Americans are rich than Malawians, so the fight may start from here as we speak. Choose to ignore but this is true. I guess you are a Cadet.

This is just a wake up call,off course we are all malawians but with different feelings,views and ideas reading to the above comments people have contributed alot that we are far from that extent…but to consider on how some are becoming arrogants,selfish and greed you can think they never mind whatever it can come in future and even they admire that in other country they have war which they think it also be here….in our country politicians are the ones that spoils us by creating and using our beloved youth to cause havoc in our street in the name of… Read more »

Ku Rwanda pano akupatsana ulemu chifukwa anatibulana. Palibe akukulira mtima nzake. Kuli chitukuko ngati Europe. Otherwise DPP THUGS think they own us, are supernaturals, are a chosen tribe like Hitler, they cannot even respect the law of the land

Civil wars don’t just start from nowhere. In the case of Rwanda, the problems started from the time of the Belgian colonial era. There were three or two genocides before the 1994 one. For Sierra Leone the writer has not given reasons for the civil war. Malawi has a history of strong political views but with peaceful transfer of power: in 1994, 2004, and 2012. No person will be willing to die just to see the corrupt leaders of DPP remain in power…
