‘Respect Joyce Banda’ Mutharika told

151

Forum for National Development (FND) has told Malawi’s ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government to speed up the process of providing a befitting and secure house for former president Joyce Banda and to restore her security detail.

In a statement signed by FND Chairperson, Bright Kampaundi and National Coordinator, Fryson Chodzi, FND says the benefits for Banda are non-negotiable because they are provided for in the constitution.

Bright Kampaundi

Kampaundi: JB deserves proper treatment.

“The state president took an oath to protect and uphold the constitution of the Republic of Malawi and our expectations are that he will do so without discrimination, vendetta and ill will.

“Furthermore her return is very crucial to the development of Malawi as so many issues will be dealt with including the issues of cashgate and also delegation to international forums,” reads part of the statement.

In the statement, FND argues that Malawians were happy to hear a beautiful and strong speech during the United Nations trip where the President stressed his interest to have this matter resolved.

FND says: “President Peter Mutharika on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and when delivering a public lecture to Yale University indicated that the former President is free to return home at any time and the government will accord her all the benefits entitled to her office.”

Joyce Banda

Remains outside Malawi.

The forum also expressed sadness to note that recent media reports have gone contrary to the position of the president and there are indications that the government has withdrawn the house that was meant for Banda in Area 10 and there has not been any assurance of reinstating of her security detail.

“The pension for former presidents is a constitutional issue since it is provided for in the constitution. We are of the opinion that such matters must not be at the mercy of the government to be choosy whether to honor or not.

“When government is failing to honor the constitutional right of the former president and provide assurance on her security and accommodation, the nation will be forced to believe that the government is only paying lip service on the return of the former president.

“We will be further compelled to believe the fears that Joyce Banda has raised about her security and safety which are serious concerns for a person of her stature,” says FND in the statement.

  12. How many Heads of State have ruled Malawi since it gained Independence? ? = Five.
    Mention them.
    1.Dr.H.Kamuzu Banda… 1964-1994.
    2.Dr.Bakili a cheya Muluzi… 1994-2004.
    3.Prf.Dr.Bingu Mutharika…2004-2012.
    4.Madam Dr.Joyce Banda..2012-2014
    5.Prf.A.Peter Mutharika. .2014-2015 up to 2019.God willing.

    Among the four Former Heads of State, two were called to the glory of the Lord,; namely late Dr.H.Kamuzu Banda and late.Bingu wa Mutharika.
    And the other two are still with us in the names of Dr.Bakili Muluzi and Madam Joyce Banda.
    They all deserve respect despite their flaws during their regimes!
    No leader is 100% perfect and will never find even one!
    Remember when u are pointing wth one finger the other points back to you. .

  13. Ya.d@s true APM shuld respect JB,coz is aformer president of Malawi & mor’over JB on her 2yrs she tryd to develop dis nation copare to him(bwampin),,If JB was ruling up to now Malawi wuld hav’changed to properity but awa ache Ibu has done nothin up to now,Peter is avisionless leader!!!

  14. Zachamba eti? munthu waba ndalama nde mukufuna azipatsidwanso ulemu? iweyo munthu wakubera kunyumba kwako nde ungalole zoti umpatse nyumba yokhalamo?
    Vuto la a mwi umbuli, joyce banda akuthawa chani? bakili muluzi ataluza adathawa? nde mukati presdent wopuma,nde kuti bakili muluzi sadali wopuma?
    Just zipp ur dirty mouth! amayi anuwo akamazabwera azangofikira ku high court…!!!

  15. In what capacity does she need to be respected? As the ex vice president or what? Malawi has never had Joice Banda for a president, not for once. Whatever you saw her doing after Bingu was done in her acting capacity and not a full president. We did not vote for her, don’t you remember? Go to hell with your bitch!

  16. All Malawians who r lyk me of lower clas ATTENTION: Lets nt waste our tym hopng dat gvmnt wl 1 day consider us noway.lets do wat ever we cn jst 2 earn a livng,leave them wth their potbellies.they wl nid us 2019 & am sure ena osamva akavotabe basi ashi bush it.

  17. Munthu ngati sanathamangitsidwe iye nkumathawa ife tiziti chiyani? Mwina ndi misala mwina chiripo wasunga pa chitenje chake, zidzadziwika ine ndikukalima kumunda.

  18. which vision ur talking about? distributing goat waz that a vision?truely truely sir that waz not a vision but trying cover sinister things she had done during hers reign.oky

  19. mbulizina zakumalawi zimangolemba zaumbuli president ndi ntchito ayenela kulandila ulemu simunthu wamba ,mmalom0ti mupange tsogolo lanu mmataya nthawi JB kuno ku SA ndimunthu wolemekezeka kuposa ku Mw kulichani. muluzi aali ndi nyumba kuno ku SA

  20. She was far much better than this clueless mtchona .Malawi was far much better during her time and God favoured us than what is happening now. Surey to live in Malawi now ndi kulimba mtima. It is like at war.

  21. munthu ovutika ndiovuta!calling Dr joyce banda all sorts of names but ifeyo olo kungotipatsa ganyu yodzala kumunda tikuba mbeu,yophunzitsa tikuba choko,in all various positions theres katangale;do we remember the scarecity of fuel,sugar,forex,the quiting of major donors and many others.

  22. Do you mean that JB atafuna sangazayimeso pachisankho? Nanga Bakili Muluzi angazayime pachisankho kenaso ngati President? Apa JB siopuma koma Muluzi ndiye opuma. Chinaso JB ndi mbamva yayikulu mu cashgate ndipo zomwe anabazo zinakwana mwamva amenewo alowele komwe kuli Lutepo basi. Ulemu ukhale kwa Muluzi osati Nasimango wanuyo. Ngati ndalama zomwe anaba anadya ngati tomato waku Lizulu ayambe gain yophika thobwa basi.

  23. Kodi pochoka kuno mayiwa linali vuto losowa pokhala eti? Zomba maximum prison ilipo abwere msanga, achitetezoso alipo. Enaso ankapatsilana nawo masaka andalama aja akawapezaso komweko

  24. Kodi security amapeleka munthu kulibe ? Anapatsidwa nyumba anayikana nde mumafuna ankakamize ? Kodi podikila kwawo alibe nyumba yoti angamakhalemo ? Atachoka ku statehouse ankakhala kuti ? Sindinamvepo ine kuti former president wapatsidwa ma benefits atathawa dziko lake lomwe

  25. I always wonder. Did cashgate start with JB or Bingu? Many people all they say is that Amayi adaba ndalama what about the 61 billion kwacha that Bingu stole? Is that not an issue anymore? And we should be thanking JB for taking the bold step to prosecute cashgaters. I would like to see that everyone involved pays for their sins be it DPP officials involved or Amayi as well. Tisamangoti Amayi everytime ngati kuti she is the only one who is involved in this disaster tchulaninso enawo. Moreover how do u give the presidency to someone who has no desire to settle in Malawi? For all we know, the current crisis might be because he is stealing the money and keeping it outside this country. Musathamangile calling someone Devil as if u know that the one u have around is an angel. He might prove to be worse than the Devil. Watchout……… Komanso enanu mukungotukwana apa, what u don’t realise is that mukungoonetsa uchitsilu wanu anthu opanda khalidwe inu. U think anyone cares. Mind your language you adolescents pali matured people pano and its a public forum. Say things that can help bring people together and not divide them. Thanks.

  26. You guys of forum for national development your stupid!!fuck you guys!!. Why should you worry about some one who is out of malawi and she is got everything?.Why don’t you worry about those who are starving of hunger?.Joice Banda is got alot of cashgate money,she can use that money to do what ever she wants,stupid donkey!!.

  27. We have crucial matters of national interest to be looked into not individual interests,,,,who is this FND, kupanda nzeru, mukatero mwamudyera Joyce, besides you want the government to provide all you are suggesting to somebody who doesn’t exist in Malawi?

    • Then what has your reply have to do with enriching an ordinary Malawian? Is it a constitutional matter for JB to go hiding? And is it like wise for government to give accommodate and what have you to the non-existence? Who is accomodating and offering security to her now, where she is?

  28. Ndizoona malamulo akutero kuti president opuma ayenera kulandira ma benefits ndithu. Popeza Si lamulo la mulungu koma anthu. Koma pa maiyu lamulo imeneyi boma lingochita ngati sakuliona. Chifukwa zake anatafuna kale za Money gate zija.

  29. kod joyce ndi president wopuma kapena oluza? mwanena kuti opuma amayenera kupasidwa nyumba ,security etc, bt jb siwopuma koma oluza, komaso hw can she gt those thing while she is not here in malawi?

    • oky,,,, @ T Max ,,,,, they saide opuma osati oluza, jb ndi oluza osati opuma,,,, komatso palibe amane anamuvotera kuti akhale president,,,,, angothokaza ifa ya bingu!

  30. So do you want the Govt to go where she is and respect her there? First you have to invite her to come back to Malawi, the we shall respect her here.

  31. Nthawi ya bingu no donors, nthawi JB donors wos available, ulamulilo wa piter no donors, WHY? Stupid DPP and the followers.

  32. Achina muluzi anayamba apita kunja komwe amakapasidwila zofunikila zawo ngat president opuma? Iye chomwe anachokera ndchan oipa athawa yekha abwere azapasidwa

  33. Do u think we dnt knw? We realy knw dat its ndilamulo kt pulesidenti wopuma ayenela kukhala ndi nyumba yabwino,security etc! Why she choose to stay kunja pamene zinthu zomwe mukunenazo ayenela kupasidwa kuno ku mw!! Akabwela azapasidwa.

Mukutsutsanu ndiumbuli umene ukukupangisani,,inu simumadziwa kuti zili mmalamulo a dziko lino kut former president ayenera kupatsidwa nyumba yabwino yokhalamo,salary,security & other benefits by the Government..so mumati abwere mMalawi muno yet nyumba yoti azikhalamo+security ya boma sanapatsidwe?,,,mwamuyesa kut ndimun2 wamba olo ali former President?

  35. The lady need to be respected ,she is not an ordinary citizen, Even if we compare two years of Madam Joyce Banda and the one year of Peter Muthalika you will agree with me Joyce Banda had a vision. Peter Muthalika is there as a person who doesn’t know his right or left. We can’t call Peter Muthalika a leader.

    • if u know nothing just shut up your fuckin mouth,,, ulibe data,,, can u compare JB’s tenure to APM ‘s?,,,, whose tenure had 100% support from the donor community and who z doing a big job while having tough time economically???,,, i feel pity for u for your silly and headless thinking

    • Thats the point mr,,peter is useless and a toture to Malawian citizens,there z no spirit of leadership in him and we don’t know where z he taking to this nation by the end of his tenure in office

    • Anthu osusanu. nzeru mulibedi aaaaa tiziti nokhaa simukusiyanisa joyc nd peter…joyc anangoona kuluza but she is better dan this fool peter …..chizeleza peter winu uyo

    • Enanu simumaziwa komwe timalowela ndi jb mwina mavuto alipowa akanakhala azaoneni kuposa pano. Jb atabwela analandila suport from donors ndipo anamupasa chilichonse koma kumapeto kwake anapezeka kuti ndalama zija wasolola yekha mpamene amapezeka kuti waluza zisankho. Mwina wanzelu watolapo wezi koma iwe chizeleze khala chomwecho ndikhungulakolo

    • Ineyo zakuti Mrs Cashgate JB anali ndi vision ndikukana kwamtuwagalu. Vision yake yakuti mwina iyeyo azakhale mai olemela kwambiri koma osati kutukula dziko lino. Mbamva yayikulu ndiyopanda manyazi iyi iyenela kunyongedwa basi.

    • Why do people only talk about cashgate yomwe atleast JB herself revealed to the Nation kuti there were full malpractice and misusing of Public funds ?
      Ambiri omwe adaba ndalama adali kale mu Dpp coz it started soon after kusintha kwa ulamuliro from Bingu to JB.
      And most of those people vowed to work with her chonsecho they were on enmity whilst she was aVP.
      92Billion, plus cash found in the State House is an indication that cashgate started with the DPP.
      And believe u me JB can’t be arrested over these cases coz they afraid she might reveal more secrets concerning the DPP .
      Remember they once worked together and amadyera limodzi!.
      Dpp and PP is a disgrace to the MW Nation. Period! !!

  36. What is the mandate of this organization? How is this issue to do with National development? We need to be serious citizens.

  37. Kkkkkkkkkkkk makape a forum munthu wakuba ameyo.abakili muluzi alipo ndipo akukhala kwao opanda chovuta.Naiyeyo akuthawa chiyani imbwa ameneyu pamodzi ndinu FND.

  38. Inunso a FND mukuwonetsa kuti Joyce wakufumbatisani. Kodi asanakhale pulezidenti amakhala kuti? Iye angobwera, akuwopa chiyani mpakana Zaka ziwiri ali moyenda?

  42. What do you mean when you write words below her picture to say that half a trillion was uncounted for the time she was a president ?

    DPP is now trying to run away from what they had stolen from the taxpayers money and put a blame on JB.

    • Comments like these from Emmanuel Boss Devis show someone with brain full of mamina. If he has brain at all. Or shows lack of knowledge of what is law and what is constitution
