Weak opposition allowing DPP to oppress Malawians – Kapito
…Chakwera slammed for ‘dormancy’
Activist John Kapito has blamed weak opposition parties for allowing the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government to rule the country with impunity.
Speaking to the local media, Kapito who is also executive director of Consumers Association of Malawi John Kapito said the opposition is weak and arrogant hence it is contributing to the suffering of Malawians.
He also attacked leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera for failing to act while the DPP government is doing everything it wants.
“Instead of acting fast on behalf of Malawians he is there watching the DPP government to do whatever they want yet he calls himself as the leader if opposition.
“He must know that the position he is holding is not for entertainment rather to help Malawians,” said Kapito.
Kapito continued by labeling Chakwera as Judas Iscariot who is selling his masters, the Malawians.
“Chakwera and Judas Iscariot are the same, Malawians expressed concern over the land bill which the DPP government passed, he was there in the Parliament but he did not use his position as the leader of opposition to help Malawians because the bill favours politicians of which I believe he is one of the beneficiaries,” he added.
The activist also mentioned taxes that Malawians are paying on basic needs like water and groceries saying they should not have been introduced.
