f our Parliament has MPs that makes some of us proud to be Malawians one of them is surely one Lifred Nawena. The former academic is always calm and collected, dropping home truths here and frank advice there.
During the past week he told his erstwhile colleagues in the DPP to accept realities that the train has left the station and they must patiently wait for another. He chastised DPP loudmouths who say the PP isn’t ready to govern, telling them that their problem is that they aren’t ready themselves to accept their sudden monstrous misfortunes.
Look at the way the DPP handled events of that famous day in April. Henry Mussa, Goodall Gondwe and Patricia Kaliati have all owned up to the fact that the sudden death of Bingu confused them so much that they all lost their heads. The problem with the DPP is that they thought - and somehow believed - that Bingu was some god. Like the real God up yonder, to them Bingu was - and would always be - omnipresent.
But one would’ve thought that after the extended mourning period these folks would’ve shaved their heads, so to speak, and start thinking like real men and women again. Look at those characters who rushed to PP only to rush back to the DPP when the spectre of Section 65 begun looking real. And look at the reaction of the DPP politburo. Do these perfectly sane adult men and women who run the DPP really think these migrants are real? It is clear that without Section 65 there would’ve been no love lost between these MPs and the party.
The DPP should have risen to the occasion and tell off these folks because they aren’t real. Their blood already turned orange; they are putting on the cloak of blue for fear of Section 65.
Can those who run DPP not see these things? Have the zizwezwe that confused the likes of Henry Mussa not yet cleared in their heads? And to think that these comedians were entrusted to run the affairs of state...
God save us!
