‘Most politicians in Malawi are selfish’- Matola

54

To the question ‘What can you say is the reason some officials are leaving your Peoples Party (PP) to join other parties?’, the party’s General Secretary Ibrahim Matola minces no words to label politicians in Malawi as ‘selfish.

Recently, there has been miscellaneous exodus of top officials from the party as well as wrangles being propelled by debates on who should lead the party even though the party’s founder, Joyce Banda opted to pick Uladi Mussa to be the acting president.

However, some officials have been pushing for Khumbo Kachali to be the leader to the extent that they sought an injunction that stopped Mussa and third vice president Kamlepo Kalua from discharging his duties.

The officials, Salim Bagus, Cliffer Kondowe, Bornwell Kapatuka, Daniel Kaipa and Zeleso Gomani went ahead to seek an injunction at Mzuzu High Court restraining the two from taking their positions.

After this officials have been leaving the party on various reasons. Some of the big names include Moses Kunkuyu who served as deputy publicist as well as Tony Ngalande.

Matola: Politicians are greedy.

But for Matola, the people who have left the party will ‘not’ be missed because they showed their true colors to leave the party because it is not in power now.

On this point, Matola said that the member were not loyal.

”They left the party because they were not loyal at all. Its a fact that most politicians in Malawi are fortune seekers. All they want is be part of a party that will give them positions and money.” Mtola told Capital Radio’s Talk Show program last week.

He then was sure enough to say that the same people who have been leaving the party will come back ‘soon’ saying the ex ruling party will bounce to power in the next elections (2019).

 

PP lost in a poll it disputed in 2014 following which there have been mixed rows over the absence of the party’s founder, Joyce Banda whose homecoming has been talked over and over again.

She has personally hinted on living in fear claiming the Peter Mutharika led government which booted her out of power intends to ‘politically prosecute’ her over her feared role in the infamous Cashgate scandal which took place under her watch.

Mutharika has since denied of having such plans and maintains his government will not net anyone on political reasons as asserted by Banda.

  1. Ur right Mr Matola very few love the people who voted them another problem is on us people,we support silly issues brought by politicians thats why when a politician is arrested poor people go into streets stonning vehicles but when a poor man is arrested politicians ask the police not to release him/her. Its time we change our mind set.

  4. i dont agree with Matola, the truth is PP has no leader period. you can not rule by remote{ appointing people in big position while the founder is away} have a mean convention and fill vacant positions

  6. The truth is that almost 80% of our politicians especially MPs don’t know the meaning of a politician, democracy, and even the ideologies for their parties. What they think of is money, they all want to get rich. They got little brains they get loans just to enjoy themselves, believing to become ministers, people who have got no plans no wonder most of them die poor. It’s not that they are selfish but they really don’t know what they are doing. I can assure you that if a journalist go to the parliament to day and surprise them with an interview in which they have to tell Malawians about their party ideologies, believe you me you will find so many excuses “aaaaah aaaah am not ready come next time aaaaah” others cannot even spell the word me. How can someone who does not not no politics help us. They are there to serve us not their stomachs. Times is now we put up limits we better start looking at how worthy they are before the stand as MPs. They should be there to run the welfare of Malawians other than being on auto search for fortunes. It should not only be money but even then entry point qualification be put at least to a diploma. If not start doing parliamentary proceedings in chichewa. I remember during the sworn in ceremony a certain MP was even failing to say “so help me God” too bad for us

  12. most politicians are unstable,busy looking 4 greener pastures and gold diggers.they join what pple have already started.if things goes from worse to the worst they jump out through an emergency exit and board another party instead of recreating their party. they find good points to back up their motives. the worst thing is that they carry their weaknesses to another party thereby ruining and undermining the parties they join.SHAME.
