Chakwera threatens Daily Times

83

The news involving Malawi Congress Party President (MCP) Lazarus Chakwera over mismanagement of public resources at Parliament has taken another twist as party founders have threatened to dismiss Times Media Group Managing Director Leonard Chikadya.

According to a local online news outlet, the party is certain that the institution has some journalists who are Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) sympathizers and who are working to demean Chakwera.

Lazarus Chakwera.

Chakwera: Remains angry.

The local paper has further divulged that Chikadya should be approving publication of negative stories about MCP and Its leader in any of the group’s subsidiary brands.

“Among the named journalists are Deogratias Mmana , Gregory Gondwe and Charles Mpaka.

“The family has been informed that some journalists at Times Group are being used as mercenaries for monetary gains to degrade the brand of Chakwera and MCP through the newspapers. This has angered the family who in turn have asked Chikadya to do something or face the chop himself, ” he said .

Recently, Chakwera, Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya, and his two deputies were accused of using vehicles worth MK 300 million at a time Malawians are lamenting of the current socio-economic downturn.

Times group also brought out the issue involving National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) condemning Chakwera for funding demonstrations against DPP.

But some political analyst have said that these stories are intended to cover up and divert people’s minds from Mutharika’s United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) saga.

Times Group, is owned by the Kamuzu Banda family and it publishes three newspapers namely: Daily Times , Malawi News and The Sunday Times . It also has Times TV and the newly bought Times Radio.

  6. I think Chakwera and Richard are threats to the government because its not on for the whole government which budgeted and allocated funds for the purchasing of those cars to the speaker and his deputies, leader of oppositon and other people who have not been mentioned here. Those are their benefits and they deserve it and why only mentioning the two instead of all including the two deputy speakers? Is it because they are from government side then they are angels, why do you want to fool Malawians on issues that are just straight forward and you are busy making noise of Chakwera and Msowoya dont you know that you are making them famous and celebrities? Instead of implementing development project basi daily tizingomva zimenezo mpaka MBC TV kuononga ndi nkhani zimenezo, musatibowe nazo please we are tired of that please.

  12. you Malawi 24 don’t twist stories, I have read carefully your article and there is no quotation which says Chakwera threatens the media, it is the family of kamuzu. Please be straight forward don’t dent the image of MCP leader. Is Chakwera the owner of Times TV?

  15. Your title is misleading Malawi 24! Nowhere is it mentioned in your story that Chakwera threated Times Group. Avoid sensationalisation of issues please……

  16. No one is an angel indeed. So Chakwera should not intimidate the media. The media is there to reveal the concealed evil things that politicians are doing!

  17. atolankhani muziganiza bwino musadapange chiganizo choulutsa nkhani zomwe mwalemba. Muzikumbuka za udindo wanu chifukwa nthawi zina ndinu mumayambitsa mikangano pakati pa anthu.
