Chilima: inspiring young people.

Malawi24 caught up with youth in the Malawi capital, Lilongwe who said that as a young vice president Chilima is a role model to many youths who aspire to be politicians.

In an interview with this publication, one young person, Japhet Banda, branded Chilima as a man and a leader who is a good example in terms of holding highly rated positions.

He told Malawi24 that Chilima’s involvement in sports is a true indication that he wants youth in the country to be motivated by him through various activities.

“Chilima is really a role model to many youth in the country. See how the veep had involved himself in various sporting activities like playing basketball and recently he led the athletics in the first ever Standard Bank 21 kilometres marathon,” Banda told Malawi24.

Another young person, Stella, Manda said Chilima’s active involvement in spiritual activities also back him as a good leader who always puts God ahead.

She told Malawi24 that as a young vice president Chilima would have been neglecting spiritual duties and having excess pleasures but he is different.

“Being a vice president as Chilima is something awesome. Had it been that he is careless and fearless he would have been enjoying worldly activities too much and not even sparing his time to thank God.

“But our veep is different. He is in his 40s but also dedicated to church activities. This is what most youth must emulate. Balancing our busy schedules with praising God as what our vice president portrays,” She told Malawi.

  1. Chilima knows he is beyond the youthful age. For him to be a running mate to APM in 2014, it was to woo votes of those who were youths. Now that he is off this age line, he still has a proximity of coaxing the youths for 2019. I don’t have a problem with him. Next time he will be playing bawo then darts, but not gulewamkulu of course. Life is fast changing. I salute Chilima!

  2. I like the guy very much, simple and down to earth. Politics will always be politics but this guy has his game up. I like him.

  3. The guy is cool..we need to learn from other countries ndale is not always about you going around castigating others…its about interacting with your people and l think he is good at it…Malawians stop criticizing on anything you see or hear that’s why we are lacking behind in anything we do…nsanje too much..

  4. This guy is totally doing nothing apart from feasting on our tax money, today golf, tomorrow basketball, the other day cycling,, nthawi nkumatha. Shame o him

  5. He would be more inspiring if he put the so called reforms into effect, end the current chaos of political adminstration. We have a lot of local sportsmen to talk about while he would be clearing the mess he’s sitting on. Because that’s why we need leaders.

    • just interested on da point of reform boss WHO is the current champion be positive at times. U will b the same kumunena y he is doing that as if is to spearhead that

  6. Kwa achinyamata akuluwa akuyesetsa,koma nanga the VP kodi nkhani izikhala imeneyi? Is he minister of sports? Why mr vp is not given platform in government isue? Why mmangowatumiza mmalo mosayela VP? Is this duties of VP? Beter to be aminister

  7. He should be somebody who fights for the rights of youths, somebody who at all time is able to motivate the youth to achieve great things in life. The ability to mix with the youth by playing basket ball or Golf is different from inspiring or motivating them.

    • Troll.it has been proven that for youth to get motivated one should first capture their interests and likes, most malawian youths like sports so Chilima is doing just that, motivating and inspiring us through basketball, cycling…and it’s working.

    • Kamanga I would like to agree with you but I do believe he’s doing well enough.last year’s population census data states 70 percent of our population as youth.

  8. Some negligible number of the youth and not most of the youth. No need to generalise here, how many young persons get in touch with him when doing his sporting activities. You’re cheating yourself.

    • admiration for what? achinyamata ambiri ntchito zikusowa ndipo ndipo ndi malova iye wangokhala phwiii!!! basi pot amamenya basketball,kumathamanga kapena kumamenya golf ndye basi mwati achinyamata tonse??? za ziii,tilipo achinyamata enafe sitiombera mmanja zopusa ayii,nomwenu mwina,him & atupere muluzi young useless politicians…

    • We did not vote him into that position to be a sportsman.People are suffering in various sectors of the economy due to high taxes his administration has imposed on. Had it been that we wanted a sportsPerson, even our own lady Mwayi kumwenda would have been far much better than this person you call the VP

  9. Thats true, he is really a great man to be admired with many yourths worldwide not only here in malawi. I like his confidence and humility in both politics and normal life, he cares and he understand our problems. He is my super model star, superble to be emmulated!
