Mangochi adds voice to the  Joins Catholic Bishops Pastoral letter

By Vincent Gunde

A Karonga based rights activist Lyton Mangochi, has joined Catholic Bishops in Malawi giving up on President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera that for several times, they have engaged him in private meetings, but no change from him.

Mangochi has blamed the voters for voting for a wrong President into office basing on trust that Chakwera being a man of God and coming from the Church, he will rule Malawi in the interest of all but he is not a man of his words.

Lyton Mangochi-.never again shall Malawi go back to one party state….

He said Chakwera and the Alliance of 9 political parties and a Movement brought a sigh of relief to the citizens thinking that he would not run government by himself but the opposite has happened, Dr. Saulosi Chilima, Kamuzu Chibambo and Enoch Chihana all walked out of the Alliance saying greedy is the order of the day.

Speaking through a video clip circulating in various social media platforms, Mangochi has encouraged Catholic Bishops in Malawi to continue siding with their flocks in comforting them from the pain and sufferings in the hands of the MCP.

Mangochi said the MCP led government has proved to Malawians that they don’t have the welfare of the citizens at heart as evidenced with no medicines in healthy facilities, no maize in ADMARC markets claiming that huge sums of money are being spent ferrying people to their rallies for handouts deceiving President Chakwera that people are rallying behind him.

He has advised DPPs Leader of Opposition in Parliament Mary Thom Navicha to stand for nothing but the truth to represent the wishes of the suffering Malawians in Parliament to shame Dr. Kondwani Nankhumwa who for four years, has been clapping hands for nonsense.

The activist said Navicha is the country’s Former British Prime Minister of 1979 Margaret Thatcher to oppose in Parliament any bill which will not be in the interest of the poor Malawians and offer constructive criticism to government as the country is heading towards 16th September, 2025 general elections.

“You are our Margaret Thatcher, Malawians are rallying behind you and will offer you support to stand in Parliament carrying their hopes,” said Mangochi.

He has called on Dr. Bakili Muluzi and Kamlepo Kalua plus all those that fought hard for democracy to come to Malawi to stand up and defend democracy claiming that the MCP government is doing everything possible to instill fear among Malawians for one-party state and dictatorship.

Mangochi has lamented that church organizations and individuals speaking for the voiceless citizens such as HRDC, PAC and Livingstonia CCAP Synod have all been swallowed by the MCP government saying he and Bon Kalindo plus others, are the ones continuing with the noble task to liberate Malawi from the shackles of MCP dictatorship.

He has since advised all those that are dreaming that Malawi go back to one -party state to go to Rwanda and dictate there not Malawi assuring the MCP government that he is ready to be arrested and prosecuted in defense of the country’s hard-won democracy not to die a natural death.
