VP Chimulirenji leads DPP victory parade in Blantyre

Chimulirenji leads DPP victory parade in Blantyre

Chimulirenji clad in blue suit was on the front line together with DPP regional governor for the South, Charles Mchacha and party executive member Brown Mpinganjira.

The vice president was elected together with President Peter Mutharika, the leader of DPP,  who narrowly won the disputed presidential election.  The incumbent leader got 38.57% while his opponent, Lazarus Chakwera, leader of opposition Malawi Congress Party trailed with 35.41%.

Chimulirenji’s predecessor,  Saulos Chilima of the opposition UTM Party came third with 20.24%.

“We are celebrating our elections victory and thank our supporters for voting us in power again,” said Chimulirenji.

Chimulirenji asked  political leaders who contested the May elections to heed the call by President Mutharika to move forward.

“They should accepted that there is only one winner at a time. And one President at a time,” he said.

DPP’s parade comes at a time when presidential candidates for UTM Party and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) are disputing the results of the presidential election, among other irregularities and they are asking the court to nullify the presidential vote.

DPP  is also expected to hold a rally at Nyambadwe School Ground on Sunday in the same city.

Mchacha said the party will assure its supporters at the victory rally that they should not be worried about the elections court case emphasising that the party legitimately won the elections.

Similar parades are also expected in Central and Northern regions of the country.

Very interesting indeed & I have liked the fact that DPP are having these marches cos they’re NOT demonstrations. It is their constitutional right to do so BUT now I think they will learn to respect others too when they’re exercising their constitutional rights as well. So don’t threaten the CSOs when they’re exercising their rights as well.

This minibus callboy mchacha does he even know the meaning of legitimate or even spell it. What bloody nonsense is he talking about…. winning legitimately. Totally an empty drum making illiterate noises. Imagine MBAVAA has all these illiterate n brainless morons in the team who can’t even speak proper english. Malawi is has become a joke in the outside world. Our neighbours are laughing at us. I appeal again my fellow Malawian brothers and sisters to wake up n let’s get together in masses to sit outside parliament state house capital hill and not forget janes houses.

So speaking English is your benchmark to certify one as intelligent? You are sick

Speaking English is not a benchmark for intelligence because it is just a language like Chichewa. However, in Malawi education levels can be determined through this language at times. Our education system used English and we get certified after writing exams in English. Let me mention here also that there can be good English speakers who are not educated but this does not nullify the fact that Proper English is a measure of levels of education in Malawi

I will not comment for obvious reasons but I observe one uniformed security officer tying the shoelace of one big shot. What is that all about?
