Muvi Wa Chilungamo critical of Chakwera’s speech in Blantyre

By Vincent Gunde

President and Commander in Chief of Muvi wa Chilungamo Revolutionary Party (MRP) Bantu Saunders Jumah, has condemned President Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera’s speech made in Blantyre that some people in Malawi are demeaning him.

President Chakwera said this when he opened a Cancer Hospital owned by business magnet Dr. Thomson Mpinganjira saying although they are demeaning him, he is busy fighting corruption and distributing food to the vulnerable Malawians.


Jumah has assured President Chakwera that there is no one in Malawi demeaning or insulting him saying all Malawians respect him as Head of Government claiming that he is being honored by his title holders such as His Excellency Dr. Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera not Lazarus.

Speaking through his face book page followed by millions of people in Malawi and Africa, Jumah said Malawians are only reminding him to live by his own words, to fulfill the promises he made for the country to move forward.

Jumah said for President Chakwera to be told that he has failed to fight corruption, he is a liar, he is not a man of his words, treating his Vice President as a trash, he has over borrowed over K10 trillion in just 4 years, he promised to resign in 2 years if he fails to deliver, that is not demeaning him or insulting him.

He reminded President Chakwera that in 2019 the country’s poverty level was 53 percent and in 2024 it is 71.3 percent, Catholic Bishops referring Malawi as Bagamoyo-a country of no hope to be freed and man-made created hunger crisis, is not demeaning or undermining him.

The MRP President said Malawians have lost trust in President Chakwera as their leader and many are regretting to have voted him into power challenging him that he cannot account for K10 trillion borrowed in 4 years pushing the country’s national debts to K13 trillion.

“For Malawians to trust Chakwera, he should exercise transparency, accountability and efficiency, if he has missed this, Malawians cannot trust him, K10 trillion gone with nothing on the ground,’ said Jumah.

He expressed his great concern that President Chakwera has for 4 years not seen utilizing the office of the Vice President claiming that Dr. Saulosi Klaus Chilima is being seen to be dormant and is being treated as a mere Minister in public functions.

Jumah has asked President Chakwera to explain to Malawians whether they have the Vice President or not, claiming that Minister of Local Government Richard Chimwendo Banda has taken over the roles of the Vice President in public meetings.

The MRP President  said if the office of the Vice President has no future in Malawi, the Republican Constitution must change other than using the same Constitution where there is a clause of the Vice President.
