Chakwera turns anger on MBC

MBC

Slammed by Chakwera.

Opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera is just not happy with the way state owned Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) is doing its work, most of which he says is solely misleading the nation.

In his New Year address, the Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president said MBC is not an independent media platform and is only being used to cheat the nation that things are normal when they are not.

He claimed that MBC has also become a platform where the opposition are castigated when they give vital advice to the president. According to Chakwera, it is sad to note that despite all the un-professionalism MBC portrays, regulatory bodies do not pounce on them.

‘’MBC (Radios and TV) have become a platform where the critics of the government are castigated. This is sad, we tend to wonder why the media platforms under MBC mislead the nation and get away with that,’’ he said.

Chakwera vents on MBC.

Recently, Chewa chiefs stormed MBC where they attacked Chakwera for calling President Peter Mutharika a failed leader.

Led by Paramount Chief Lundu at Bridge View Hotel in Lilongwe, the press briefing was attended by 13 traditional authorities (T/As).

Their statement has been replayed over and over again on MBC and has earned the state broadcaster criticism.

Chakwera has since asked Mutharika to make sure that MBC, Anti-Corruption Burea (ACB) and other institutions work independently.

  1. Chakwera taperekeni solutions to our challenges rather than criticising everything that government is doing. Let me tell you this , ndale zongonyozana a malawi tinatopa nazo koma tikufuna inu otsutsa mutiuzireko boma mfundo zoti lichite kuti tithane ndi mavuto athuwa .Mwachitsanzo ndimamvera radio islamu pamene amacheza ndi Mr Mvura komanso professor Chisi akuakulu amenewa amapereka mfundo zothyakuka zomwe boma lingachite kuti tithane ndi mavuto omwe atigwwerawa osati kunyoza ayi. Ndipo ndimadabwa nanu Mr Chakwera mukati ndinu apostle , mumatumikira Mulungu wake yemweyi wa Abraham chifukwa mkamwa mwanu mumatuluka mau onunkha kwambiri komanso opanda chiyembekezo ku mtundu wa Amalawi. Chimene mungachite mudekhe .

  5. On the issue of a mad man breaking into the State House, is it not supposed to be a fortress? This nutter’s shenanigans will trigger a crazy MP into calling for security upgrades there. Maybe the nutter is a fake. Take him to the Mental Hospital for an examination. Security upgrades will only enable some people to line up their pockets.

  6. Apite kutchalitchi adzikalalikira ameneyoyo.Daily kumangolimbana ndi azinzake.Iyeyo chipani chake chumulephela kuchipanga manage nde dziko angakwanitse kuliyendetsa? Amuthawathawa anthu muchipani chakecho because of poor governance and he is still having the guts to dream of governing the country? No way! Good leadership must start right in his own family which in this case is his party.You can not run a church if you are failing to manage your family and you can not run a political party if you failed to manage properly your church and you can not run a government if you are failing to manage your party.Enough of your noise Mr chakwera.You are not better off.Everybody claims to be a better leader during campaign period but once they get there, the do the same things the previous Presidents have been doing.So its enough of your noise.
