MZIMBA--New Republican Party (NRP) President Gwanda Chakuamba has said Malawians aren't interested in the former ruling party because of its poor human rights and governance records.
“No, not DPP, please. People of Mzimba South West and Mzimba Central, I come to join you to celebrate and thank God what He has given us. We can't be talking of the DPP now, everyone knows their record and what they stood for, that is not a party worth to be existing in our country,” said the veteran politician.
Chakuamba, who came as a guest of Vice President Khumbo Kachali at Kalikumbi ground during a campaign rally, said the whole world and Africa celebrated the rise of Joyce Banda which he described as act of God.
“When 9 October comes, it is up to the people to tell God that thank you for saving us from that torturous regime. Or you can tell God he didn't do well to change the regime. It is really up to the people here,” said Chakuamba.
The NRP leader said although he had tried three times to run for the presidency, Joyce Banda and Khumbo Kachali only required devine intervention to ascend to the coveted office, saying Malawians were supposed to learn from the development.
“You hear others scream tell them I tried in 1999 and 2004 but God didn't give me the chance. I haven't asked why that happened, but whole heartedly accepted that Joyce Banda and Khumbo Kachali is that will of God at this moment,” said Chakuamba who wowed the crowds.
Earlier Home Affairs Minister Uladi Mussa also told the crowd that in everyone’s life, there are four stages of birth, death, maturity and all other parties that ruled the country had reached their end in politics.
“The MCP, UDF and DPP can never rule or come again in this country. This is time for Joyce Banda and not anybody else. Peoples are wasting time failing to accept that authority as they are dreaming that they will come again and rule this country,” said Mussa.
Kamlepo: Nothing to oppose
The performance of the Banda administration and its ability to stop the country from total economic collapse should earn her praise and not opposition from any sensible Malawian, says vocal Malawi Democratic Party leader Kamlepo Kalua.
Kalua was speaking at Kalikumbi in Mzimba South West Constituency where he addressed a rally together with Vice President Khumbo Kachali, saying as an opposition Leader he was at the rally to offer political solidarity.
“Why should I oppose Joyce Banda, why should I oppose Khumbo Kachali. Those that know where we are coming from know that we have changed and appreciate. It will be senseless for anybody to oppose for the sake of opposing,” said Kalua who spoke briefly.
Education Minister Eunice Kazembe told the rally that time had come for Malawians to be united and offer solutions to any challenge that they may face as President Joyce Banda and the Peoples Party leadership had proven to be a listening government.
