Tumbuka Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe U-turn on Mutharika endorsement

A Tumbuka Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi has said he is reversing his decision to endorse President  Peter Mutharika’s  2019 presidential bid, saying Malawians will decide according to their conscious when the country goes to polls.

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi: Reverses endorsement

Chikulamayembe  endorsed Mutharika during the rally the President held in Rumphi last week at Bolero, after laying a foundation stone for the Rumphi-Nyika-Chitipa Road.

The Tumbuka Paraount chief  said Mutharika will win the election without hurdles.

But Chikulamayembe has reversed his statement in an interview, saying  he remains  apolitical, and his  endorsement has been reversed.

“I am not telling people to vote for Mutharika. I am not a politician and I would not be one. Chiefs are supposed to be apolitical,” he said.

Chikulamayembe said chiefs should give equal ground to politicians to campaign freely and let their subjects make an informed choice to vote wisely in 2019 elections.

Art another public rally which Mutharika held at Mpherembe, Inkosi ya Makhosi M’mbelwa V of Mzimba  said Mutharika  is one of the few leaders who have done a lot in the country; hence the need for people to vote for him in next year’s elections.

Honestly Chiefs are leaders trusted to guide and administer justice. His changing statement can further confuse his villagers to choose a wrong candidate in the 2019 tripartite elections who will not be development conscious, appealing to the unity and loyalty at party as well as country level. It is a disgrace that we still live with chiefs who cannot stand up and fight for the freedom, be it economic or whatever you may call it, of the Malawi nation and citizens. UTM is no better choice for Malawians because it has been formed by people who are desperate for money… Read more »

Our small gods never sit down and plan their speeches. The sad turnaround is a disgrace to any reasonable ruler. This institution of chiefs in Malawi adds no value to our societal development it benefits our political elite to go into the electorate for votes. There are the conduits in canvassing for votes. Chiefs siphon a lot of funds from these filthy fat cats whose only intention is self aggrandisement. So these illiterate chiefs won’t stop engaging in political prostitution namely Lundu Mbelwa Chikulamayembe Kaomba and the political brat Kyungu

We have liars like the UTM. We have thieves like dpp who are stealing through the very same projects they have been launching. That is why the roads are substandard and develop potholes within a year. Look at the roads Kamuzu built.They still stand today. You can cruise 180 km/hour. Mchinji road, mwanza road, Salima road from lilongwe. Alamu Pumani Mwakula has proved to be a thief. Chilima should try again after 10 years. He has to go to seminary to become a saint.

Is this chief slowly becoming demented? or he is just a flip-flopper and unprincipled? or simply say was he hoodwinked by the power of the khaki envelope offered by Mutharika? What is it that chiefs see appealing in Peter Mutharika, from personality to policy substance and his overall performance? Peter Mutharika is not a good leader for the following reasons: 1.lacks honesty and integrity 2. doesn’t inspire others. 3.lacks commitment and passion. 3.is not a good communicator. 4.lacks decision making capabilities. 5. lacks accountability. 6. Doesn’t know how to delegate and empower others. 7.lacks creativity and is not innovative. 8.has… Read more »
