Chakwera showing traits of a dictator – Govt

58

Malawi’s political atmosphere has been turned into a blaming ground as government has hit back at leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera for criticising the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.

In a statement released Wednesday, government has claimed that Chakwera has an appetite for anarchy and dictatorship which is a threat to democracy.

Lazarous Chakwera

Lazarus Chakwera blasted by DPP.

These sentiments follow a statement that Chakwera had addressed to the public faulting President Peter Mutharika’s government describing it as the most “corrupt”.

Chakwera further called for action on reports of corruption among top government officials. He added by threatening to boycott parliamentary sessions if Mutharika remains silent on controversial issues in the country.

Reacting to the statement, government through its spokesperson Nicholas Dausi has faulted Chakwera arguing that the MCP leader was calling for a revolt.
“Dr. Chakwera’s appetite for dictatorship and anarchy as evidenced by his express desire to sabotage development and Parliament business unless President Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika breaks some laws is menacing threat to our democracy.

“Government is further concerned that Dr. Chakwera has called upon the Head of State to break the laws of the Republic by undermining the independence of and interfering with the law enforcing agencies such as the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB),” reads part of the statement made available to Malawi24.

The statement further disclosed that probing government officials as demanded by Chakwera is arbitrary use of power, something Mutharika would not allow as he is a peaceful democrat who respects the rule of law.

  2. Chakwera whether is wrong or right the issue is President of the nation in his integrity or as him the President is responsible to make sure that ACB is doing its job or investigating cases respectively and follow strategies and the President is responsible to make sure that Malawians are satisfied how ACB is doing its job.So if we are accusing Chakwera of requesting the President to give orders to ACB to investigate some Ministers we are wrong.What Chakwera is trying to mean in this issue is.President is the voice of all Malawians instead of all of us Malawians going to ACB now Chakwera gives honour to the President that’s why he requested the President to ask ACB to do what Malawians want ACB to do.

  14. Chakwera is right because minsters are hiding huge amount of cash in their houses, we should support Chakwera regardless which party we are, theft can not condoned, looting is a huge problem in the country even chaponda was not alone, every minster is stealing from his ministry’s, don’t expect some one from heaven to expose these thugs

  17. Mr Chakwera, what we want is Electricity and not your foolish personal desires. I am a Malawian who is failing to make ends meet because of high PAYE tax, I decided to do some printing business in order to but I do not have electricity which has made my effort useless.
