Demonstrations not solution to Malawi’s problems – Undule

125

Former rights activist Undule Mwakasungula has said demonstrations are not a solution to solving problems facing the country.

This is coming at a time when some Civil Society Organisations organised demonstrations in Lilongwe saying the current government has failed to solve the problems the country is facing.

One of the social analysts in the country, Undule Makasungula, said it is disappointing that the CSOs resort  to demostrations which are not helping Malawi.

Mwakasungula: Demos are useless.

Mwakasungula said it is always important not to missuse the right to demonstrate and to always respect dialogue.

”The Civil Society in the country want to resort everything into demostrations as part of enjoying their human right of which I think is one way of misusing the right to demonstration,” said Mwakasungula.

He added that taking every issue to the street is not helping the country but dialogue is the best solution to finding lasting solutions to the country’s problems.

The former rights activist further said that whatever action CSOs take they will end on a round table as such they need to review their policies.

  4. Lavulani akudyesanzo ma demonstration nde ndnjr yonkhayo yosover kusamver nd kugwrtsa ntchto maganizo a Malawi ndposo ndkwabwino kukhr nd nfuti ngat amnzathu Ku aluya uko kuombernapo bas aaaaaa za bwino palibe pa Malawi. It’s true our world is on fire more especially our nation Malawi aaaaaaa

  5. Iwe ka undule ngat simunamuone . Bingu kamwalilidwe kake ndinamukoza amkachita matama ake ameneo bwino nazo…umuuze mzakoyo bwino. Kkkkkkkkk.

  6. We learn through mistake that’s why undule is saying demons aren’t solution to the problems the country is facing. He is recalling what he led pple into on 20 July in mzuzu so, that is a sign of confession

  7. Tiuze njila yoti tipange yoti yitithandize amalawi, mesa ukuti ma demos so solution???, kuzitenga ngati ndinu anzelu koma muribe osangokhala chete bwanji?!

  8. A Undule amalimbana ndi Bingu chifukwa samagawa ma barns….koma Peter ndiye wakokolora atsogoleri onse a ma CSO kuwaika mma Parastatal ngati ma board chair ndi ma members…a Undule mkatimo…atsala ndi a Mayaya ndi anzawo ochepa…so I find it difficult to believe Undule ..the man who has just been rewarded by APM for siding with his gvt…I dont even know whether these CSO leaders just want to use us for their selfish gains or not…no wonder a few pple participate in the demos..cos malawians are watching…

    • The other reason apart from this of leaders is that Bingu successfuly instilled fear in most Malawians by killing the 20 people in the first known demos. It will not be easy to carry out demos in large numbers. To me the important thing is if the message was delivered and will be adheared to.

  9. He is mentally ill.people who lost lives coz of him on July. He quited demos at last minute after he was given huge sum of money.he can not tell anything meaningful to the nation

  10. demonstration is our right.. what if there is no dialogue… what can we do if there is no change or dialogue isnt been put in place?

  11. Who said after the demonstration demonstrators expected only one thing… to change? The very fact that people are talking about it one vivid example of success of the demonstration, the other is within state house ….

  12. Mukumunyoza Undule yet ku mseu kunali anthu 20 koma lero usiku ma comment akwana thousand and yet Mayaya ndi anzake anayaluka ku mseu mukanapita kaa kusiyana nkutukwana #Undule# amene akudziwa ubwino ndi kuyipa kwa mademo. Munena nokha kuti anaphetsa anthu 20 so anaona ndipo anadziwa kuti zimakhala bwanji. Experience is a good teacher! Ignore his advice at owners risk!

  13. Malawians are peaceful and full of displain when they say let’s go for demos just know atopa ndi ulemu kulila kwao kungaveke bwanji nanga? a Undule tiponyereniko mukudya mmwambazo dzana tinali limodzi pansi pano

  14. Sure ichi chiundule chizungu chiziwa kuyankhula pakamwa chabe koma m’mutu mzeru chilibe, manje pamene wamwa kamilk nikudya tumapizza uona ngati akudya bwino?Eee?Zoona iweyo utati wabeledwa nipo mbavayo ukuiziwa niye ungayiitanise nikumakambirana nayo?

  15. Uuuuuh! Andule tangokhalani chete apa. Mwaziwa liti kuti ma demo si solution? Tafunani kaye chibanzi chimene anakupasani icho. Apa simungayankhule zanzeru.

  16. But are an eye opener to government which disregards its citizens needs. Its more like your grade 1 kid who can’t wake up early for school on themself. And you telling them, “wake wake, rise up ” , they’ll soon be on their feet. If you don’t toyi toyi or demonstrate against poor leadership of African government, all you get is zero service delivery Mwakasungula we!

  17. Demonstrations is a say meaning of protesting. Does this chappie thing people will cook protests? The aim of protesting is to show that we are not happy wit what is happening. At the end they submit memorandum to those leaders. If they are genuine leaders then they will respond to that matter. So what does this chappie think is the best way forward. Yes dialogue but with who. So Malawi must sit and watch Chaponda stealing maize and thank him. What a pathetic mind

  18. Who said demos is a solution? Demos is just one way to communicate to you fools through action,only that the demos we do in Malawi doesnt change your sturbbon brains!! I tell you Malawi shall rise one day…rising against every creature in leadership now then you shall see humans leading humans

    • But if a few people demonstrating, what does that communicate??? It clearly shows that people have no interest for the demos. We have completly diluted the strength of demonstrations. They no longer carry nowadays. Tiyeni tizingodikira mavoti apa basi

    • thats great from yu bro Glad…we shall eliminate all the crockdiles and Owls on the driving seat…and we will hear news of cardiac arrest, diabetes and and old age from north to south….time will tell.

    • These are words that come from someone born & grewup in a peaceful environment. Take a drive one day across the neighboring border to atleast learn to face a War weapon rather than just talk from the comfort of your home after a few shots of Brandy.

  19. But corruption is the best solution to make us stuck on poverty shame.zimandikhuzatu nsaname,kuziwa kuyankhula chizungu siulemelero.ndangomvesedwa zoti Malawi wangayu ali pa number 6 chingerezi mu Africa koma ndi dziko losaukisisa,ndangodusa ine odi ndiphike doweyu apa.

  20. Aundulee Wadziwa Liti Zimenezi?Let Malawians Know Da Solution Frm U Now,iweyo Kuchuluka Nzeru Pano?Solution Yinakukanika Bwanji Pa July 20 Paja,wachekula Mahala Yamba Kumala Eti Muwe Nasoni! Wemtungulu Fiyo Naloli!!

  21. Iwe Undura wadziwa liti kuti Demo is not solution si ndiwe amene unapangitsa kuti anthu 20 ataye miyoyo yawo then lero udziyakhura zopusanzo ur very stupid go to hell uli ku boma lero ndiye uziti fwiiiiiiiiii ukuyakhulira kuti? Usatichimwitse ndi kuyakhura zingodya ma Zintuwisanzo.

  22. Just a reminder to my fellow citizens of Malawi, it’s we people or I can say it’s we citizens who always suffer when something goes wrong. Remember it’s we the citizens who are in a big pressure to act eg. Doing demonstration will not indeed solve the problems. I will advise you my fellow Malawian’s not to take part when such things happen cause it’s we citizens who suffer and not the leaders. Even if we can do what we can to come up with good solutions but that will not help us cause we are not leaders, they do what they want and not what the citizens want. The most common problem is corruption and the only thing about their pocket. I love you all my fellow Malawian’s let’s be safe and help our families keep going. Politics will not help us, it’s just a rout to those who are in power for getting rich after we the citizens doing a great job by voting for them with the aim of a change in leadership afterwards the turn their back to us. Let God be our guidance always cause them the will never solve the problem cause they are after money in there pockets.

    • We are just hoes or caterpillars-D7s – used in road construction and never to use the road when it has been completed. Malawians for sure lets not die to enrich somebody. Remember they climbed high up on the scaffold of you- the voters- and you can bring them down using the same vote SIMPLE. They are to come back to us to ask for our vote then thats the time to remind them of their arrogance for sure and turn the other way.

  23. sikuti kulakwa koma kufuna kupeza njira ya anthu omatilamulira pazomwe akutilakwiya vote yanthu isakhare chiphinjo kwa iwo ndikumazuza miyoyo ya malawi wo anapanga iwo kukhara pamene alipo ndiye demo ipitilire basi enanu amenewo ndimantha kuwopa kumangidwa osamagona amalawi tazikani vote yanu igwire ntchito basi pamenepo

  25. ngati KULI MBUZI YA MUNTHU NDIYE MWAKASUNGULA.WAYIWALA KUTI UNKALIMBANA NDI BINGU.NGATI ANAKUSEKA PAKAMWA BWANJI OSAWASIYA AZAKO NAWO AZISAKE.We are in a consolidated democracy and demo is one way of keeping in check the powers of executive arm of government.If you want dictatorship go to hel

  26. yapanopayi iyambireso ndi masukulu wapolice akangolowerera kaotcheni ma kitchen a maoffice awo a police basi ndekut zikuyenda bho, popano tiyambitsaso ya fees mst falls again

  27. chofunika apa tonse amalawi tipange mademo okwiya kut Malawi yonse wakwiisidwa ndipo sulution yake ndi kuotcha ma office a boma koma osapeleka misonkho ai

  28. Oooowwowohoo amwakasungula amenewo????????? Mizimu ya anthu twenty ijatu njokwiyabeeeeeeeee mungaganize kt sitikukumbuka !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  29. Who is speaking mwati. Is this the same man who was behind the demonstrations in Malawi before he began eating bans. Shut up your mouth sure. Better be silent than speak scrap.

  30. What else can you say today yesterday you were in the forefront after being sconed given a post in one of the parastatals eat the scone you have become wiser

  31. Already the demo organisers are ashamed with the turn up but they cannot swallow their pride and admit it. This is a clear sign that demos are no longer crowd pullers. Shame on mayaya, Tsembereka and Trapence for disturbing the streets of Lilongwe. Never do it again or you will only make DPP Govt more and more popular. If you think am lying what do you make out of the poor patronage?

    • Which Thyolo are you talking about? Am also from there and DPP is a darling. You will suprised come 2019. The opposition is surely lobbying for impeachment cos they well know that DPP is invicible, if I may school you.

    • The reason why Demos fail is that even people like Sembereka comes as an activist when people know for sure he is a politician and failed miserably on PP ticket in 2014. Malawians arent fools and they know the way out not being told what to do by clueless activism just for personal gains.

    • chipani cha mcp ngakhale 2019 atatenga Trump ngati candidate pa general Election mcp sidzawinabe mpaka yesu kubwera kudzaweruza apo bii chidzathetsedwe ndipo ndikamamva dzina loti mcp mumandikumbusa kumangidwa komangira mikono kumbuyo ati (nyakula)mcp opposition for ever

    • with such type of thinking even dialogue can achieve anything. Looks we are happy to see our leaders eat our wealth while we starve. Cry my beloved Malawi. Aundule amadziwika kuti akufuna kutola chikwama. Let us see him soĺve the problems by dialoguing.

  32. Considering the number of people who turned up for demos, it was very less. i totally agree that is not a solution. The best one is dilogue and contact with all the concerned parties. Demos objective is achieved after long term and sometimes not.

  33. You know what Mr…Demonstrations is inner anger of Citizen of the Country to show those who are in Charge. That thy must take actions of what is happening….so i believe it woks if you hear what are thy demonstrating for…

  34. Mwakasungula is right,the only solution is for Malawians to kill all people involved in corruption.Thats the only solution to stop people from indulging in corrupt activities.Lets take the mob justice way,lets kill chaponda,Ben Phiri,Paul Mphiyo,Uladi Mussa,Nankhumwa and others who are very corrupt by stoning them.There and then we shall make Malawi clean.
