Mutharika is only achieving on paper – Chakwera

208

Leader of opposition Dr Lazarus Chakwera has claimed that President Peter Mutharika is achieving on paper only.

Chakwera said this as he questioned government’s claims that Malawi has achieved a single-digit inflation.

Lazarus Chakwera

Chakwera: The claims are just on paper.

Chakwera has said that the claims are just on paper but in reality, Malawians are still facing challenges due to persistent increase in prices of goods on the market.

Speaking in Lilongwe, Chakwera said things under current Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government are just claimed on paper but if such claims can be put on the ground, the sentiments can’t be similar.

The leader of opposition said people in villages are still starving and cannot afford to buy farm inputs hence saying that inflation rate has dwindled is unfair.

Chakwera then stressed the need for Malawi to end its woes using practical approaches unlike just claiming figures on papers.

Government said last week that Malawi’s headline inflation hit single digit in August, falling by 0.9 percentage points from 10.2 percent in July to 9.3 percent in August.

This is the first time in 80 months that Malawi has recorded single digit inflation since December 2011, when inflation was at 9.8 percent.

  1. munthuyu poyamba ndimamupatsa ulemu koma tsopano ndaona kuti satana wakula mu mtima mwake cha umunthu chamuchokera mtima wonse uli pofuna kulamulira. ndi zomvetsa chisoni kuti mulungu akadzampatsa iye dziko lidzakhala pa mabvuto oti tidzakumbukira atsogoleri onse a mbuyomu

  2. Chakwera iwenso ndiye mbuzi ya munthu kotheratu. Kusankha iwe kukhala mtsogoleri wa dziko lathu labwinoli ndiye mistake yaikulu koposa. Ngati zinakukanika kutsogolera mpingo, kuli bwanji dziko? Chomwe ukudziwa ndikutsatsa baasi, nchifukwa chake ngakhale kuchipani kwako kumene zikukayikitsa ngati uzayime pa chisankho cha 2019.

  3. Its a pity some comments about Chakwera here are derogatory and this is not good ladies and gentlemen. Let us treat the honourable man with respect. Ena akuonjeza kunyoza. In as far as am concerned his a good man and I like him. If I speak against what he says it doesn’t mean I should hate him as well. People have dissenting views all the time even pabanja. Let us learn to criticize constructively and not ridicule our leaders whether in government or opposition

  4. “Achieving on paper,” what can that really mean Obusa Ochakwela? Kikikiiiiikiiiiiikiiiii!! Do not confuse Malawians just accept that we seem to be on the right path as a nation and what only remains is for the gains so far achieved to trickle down to the local people. The economic stability is achieved, most goods prices are stable and that inflation is reduced, that’s not a simple issue mr chakwela. When Peter was being voted, the economy was in shambles, kwacha was being devalued on daily basis, so kungoyamikilako sometimes you can not lose anything rather than beating about the bush. What do you mean with your poem ‘achieving on paper’ useless opposition leader, bullshit!!!

  5. @samuel Gordons Chibambo……….the negative comments are not sponsored but it’s a true picture that we love our President……for your information nobody will take over the presidency via ballot box only DPP will………kodi a tumbuka mumaiwala bwanji Kuti MCP inakusamutsaniponi early 90’s kuti musapezekenso Kumwera muzipita kwanu????????? Koma Pano mu nga nga nga kkkkkkkkkkkkk

  6. Asatana okhaokha awa atiuzanji bola akadatiuza za Yesu because only Jesus Christ is my hope and hope for Malawians not a politician.

  7. And some1 has said tht ”chakwera should appreciate apm for he(chakwera) wz given a car as a leader of opposition”. Fella, differentiate sympathy/mindfullnes from constitution stuff. Whether apm wanted t or nt, he jst had to give the devil its due, bcoz its a contitutional matter.

  8. Fam, which achievements or endevours r u talking abot?(am jst hearing, ‘chakwera z failing to appreciate grt stuff apm has done bt witout a mention of any’). The fact of ‘failing’ is coming in bcoz of the comparison between wat he said(things he jotted down as his manifesto) against wat he has achieved so far. If he promised 20 things in his manifesto for instance, and has achieved only 4 of them, thts wat otha pipo r calling it ‘achieving things on papers’ Kkkk. And again, if 3/4 of wat he has achieved currently r far from his aforesaid things, then it means he has failed malawians, y? Bcoz we voted for him for wat he told us. So the main issue z abot ‘wat he said against wat he has achieved’, as simple as tht. Apologies for a wall of txt kkkkk

  9. Chitsiru cha munthu,,, do u know wht is inflation and wht it means to achieve this inthe absence of donor support???, iwe ndi nyani kwambiri suzalamula malawi, wachepa nazo,,, upse mtima zenizeni, single digit kkk

  10. Hahahahahaha……like serious Chakwera is on point, I also see a lot of development like Job opportunities, high education standard, the root out of corruption etc all these things I see them on National News Paper, and I usually hear them from MBC in the speech of Mr President. But Practically I don’t see these things, so I was thinking that iam the only one obseving this!

  20. I used to cry thinking I would die of the HIV virus, I never knew there was a cure to HIV until I was completely cured from the virus by Dr Ikuku herbal medicine after suffering from the virus for over 7 years. Sometimes last year a lady posted on this page of how she was cured by this Dr Ikuku. At first I doubted her but I was convinced when I saw others the doctor has cured.I tried the herb and it worked on me. I can boldly say I am now negative after series of tests conducted by different doctors. If you are positive or have any disturbing sickness you can contact the doc now on call or Whatsapp +2348079062707

  21. Palibe azakwanisa kupanga chilichose pabanja koma kupangako pang,ono first yang,anani azitsogoleli am,mbuyomu anakwanitsa kupanga zose zomwe anthu amafuna? Palibe padziko adzatelo kufikila mwini wake mulungu atabwela kudzatenga dzikoli

  22. If your living in a one bedroom glass thatched house how do you convince your family by simply showing them a 5 bedroomed house plan? Convince them by starting the ground work not just on paper.

  23. adha politics ndi dyera zimaenderana,,,,chakwera ndi munthu wabwino kwambiri,ndipo atha kulamulira malawi..NOW..chakwera ndiosiyana kwambiri ndi ma presdent ena azipani zina,WHY.,munthuyi ndi WASANJE,WOFUNITSITSA UDINDO,osati munthawi yake ayi,NDIPO,adzalira mu 19 muno CHIFUKWA,anthu amuzindikira khalidwe lake loipali,CHONCHO,kwa odala ochakwera ndikupasa wina udindowu kut mcp idzawineko osati munthu wongomatsutsa chilichonse koma osaika solution,.,pezani uphungu wabwino kuchokera kwa munthu wankulu j.z.u tembo,,,mukatero muyamba kumuyamikira pitala mzanuyi,KOTELO,anthu muwakopa ndi khalidwe lanuli apo biii aaaata,pitala akhale mzanu mwaumunthu osati paliponse kungomamuipitsa,,,iyeyu ndimtsogoleri wadziko osati za dpp ayi,perekani mzeru zoyendetsera dziko osat hatred paliponse…aaaaa mxwieee.kupusa!

  25. Politicians!, i don’t know who u call yourself, are evil. You’re surviving by poor peoples taxes and you think his Majesty, “WHO I AM” will torelate THIS! you are lost.

  26. kodi inuyo achakwela? Inuyo nde muli zelu zambili kuposa azanuwo? Tiyeni tikaone pa sheffa paja pakuoneka bwanji? Azanutu apalongosola nanga bwanji inu zimkakuvutani? Nde ngati mpingo unakukanikani kuli bwanji dziko.Muziganiza kawili katatu musanayankhule.

  27. He is nothing, i hate mcp with they old fashion,,,do yu think that dictatorship will rise again from died,kamuzu he wasn’t a malawian ,,,

  28. If chakwera looses 2019 I will not be surprised. He has no any constructive criticism. He doesn’t commend where it is due. E.g inflation rate declining to single digit, APM going to UN with only 19 members , these fiscal disciplinary measures are positive move to help preserving gvt coffers.

    People are also aware how gvt is striving to bring back economy to the right track. But he doesn’t even offer support. its easy to critique when you are outside gvt.

  29. This idiot known as Chakwera even give us anything but he’s very very poor Mia is rich than him,so Chakwera will you please shut up,we’re tired of your stinky mouth…

  30. When I want to construct a house I first have it on paper. And I mobilize the materials and the construction begins. Chakwera is aware of completed paper work of most projects in Malawi but he isn’t wiser enough to note that paper work won’t be turned into infrastructure in a day, that paper work on reforms won’t be fulfilled in a day. If he was wiser he would have engaged himself unto the projects because they will smoothen his path if he gets into power into 2019. He is too blind to note the reduction of inflation from 24% to single digit 9.3%, the massive reduction in interest rates. He is too blind to take note of the infrastructural development across the country. He is busy frustrating Salima-Lilongwe waterway just as MCP also did with the flamboyant current millennium challenge electricity project 7 years ago. The electricity project would’ve finished in 2015 and Malawi wouldn’t have blackouts if only MCP wasn’t crazily greedy. MCP is too jealousy to appreciate the effort by DPP. BY THE WAY WHAT DEVELOPMENT HAS CHAKWERA SO FAR DONE IN MCP?

    • Amwene ndipo mwalatsa!!! Andalewa chilichonse amalowetsapo ndale basi, ndipo akupanga Dala kuti nkhani ya madzi kuchoka ku Salima-lilongwe ilephereke becoz akudziwa kuti anthu aku central region azindikira kuti boma lomwe lilipo ndilomwe lawabweretsera madzi osati iwo ngati otsusa!!!!!

  31. What do u mean mac carthy? Whom are u compairing him with? Are u admiring the position? Stop metioning and critisizing the way the president is rulling,just convince the voters to vote for u election to come fullstop.when u are against someone,don’t even calls his/her name because u will make his name heard than u’rs.get wise mac carthy!

  32.

  33. Hahaha yesterday it was the president is doing nothing,while a day before yesterday it the country malawi is ruled by educated surveges,now its mutharika is a chieving things on paper ,interesting ,Mr president that road in your constituency is on a paper?That car which u were given by government to a opposition leader is on a paper?Learn to appreciate inorder others to do the same to you.Go and seek advise to Mr Tembo i hv never heard him speaking just like wat u are doing.Even if its failing achieving things should we say everything is wrong.why do u behave as if u stay in uk that u can not talk to ur fell president,why cant u make a day chart with him advise him wat to do not just everyday same issue of failing to achieve as if the world is ending tomorrow.I trusted u from beggining u joined politics but am loosing hope that everyday its an issue of a president not achieving this n that.As a leader but also a child of God learn to appreciate and recommend others for the sake of respecting what the bible is talking about.
    Dont worry u will see the physical achievements in due corse stay focused.

  34. awa angofuna potchukilapo ngati iwowa adakanika kuyendetsa mpingo waanthu 50 ndiye angakwanitse kulamula dziko ayi inu basi zikhalani ku opposition konko mpaka day yobelw yesu

  36. Chakwera should learn to give credit where it is due and critique where necessary but if he pokes holes in any achievements his counterpart registers then he risks being branded a castigator who wants to score some political points by belittling his opposition’s scores when others out there are appreciative of what his adversary has achieved. He should concentrate much on winning the majority of Malawians favour and that’s gonna win him votes. Being dubbed “Otsutsa nzabwino zomwe” will be detrimental to his campaign to lead this nation. This is a tricky kind of world he got himself into, -politics, and he should dump some bickering that goes with it. He has what it takes to win the residency and should not spoil it by mere theatrics largely practiced by traditional opposition cadres. The.world of economics is crazy because it favours gains on the paper and not on the persons amd thats why ypu find economists living a life that gets people to call them oumira. Economists would rather have more money in the bank than in the pocket and what Malawians want is the latter because of the rampant povert amongst a larger population here That’s my opinion anyway and i might be wrong and perhaps right

    • Can you clearly point out what the government has achieved and then juxtapose it with unfair criticism from chakwera? Or you are just going by the tiring cliché of constructive criticism from the opposition without any back up points

    • Inflation has declined to a single digit on paper my friend go and tell the people in the village about your economical terminology they won’t buy that. Let things change on the ground not on paper cause some small headed people like me will think it’s just another political sentiment.

    • If government satisfies the people’s needs exactly the way they want, will it succeed? Politicians have rhetoric that makes sense yo them. You go in the village and hear what the people want government to do for them and tell me which government can do that. Chakwera is not in the hotseat yet and he can speak as he pleases but practical and theory are two different things. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and what you see in the villages you are talking about bears testimony to that. Malawi will always be poor whether you acceptitor not and not even Chakwera can improve the situation. You should not lie to yourself that politicians are thesolution to poverty NO. Poverty has been theresince time immemorial what I hate so much is politicians trying to get people to go up in arms by pointing at their misfortunes and blaming it on their adversaries. They should win the presidency by doing a good and effective campaign that will get the people to entrust them with the job. Our politicians have this habit of criticising whatever the opposite camp is doing even if its for the good of the populace. This goes for both government and opposition. If the opposition supports government they are termed soft. If they give constructive criticism you find the ruling party attacking them. Both sides should learn to understand each other to serve us better. Its a pity I don’t see that happening now or ever because most of our politicians are a greedy lot and want just to use us to get up there. Thats the plight of Malawians and not the poverty

    • My take on ending poverty is not through politicians but my brain and limbs. The Biblesays in Genesis says from your sweat will come your food. Nowhere does it say we should go around with a begging bowl. Sadly our governments have to beg and borrow just to keep the boat afloat. Politicians should just play their games and not drag the poor into their fights and when they get their way dump them mercilessly. Nobody wakes up in the morning expecting someone to come and use them NO. Enough is enough. Mwadya okha ndi abale awo akalowa pa mpandowo ife nkumakhalabe pa zero pompaja

    • I quote Genesis 3 verse 19 “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken; forduat thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return”. It would do better to start from verse 17. WORK

    • Kanundu politics nadi development they go simultaneously,if leaders are clueless like what we have,they claim achievement, but what’s on the ground

    • You are right boss, only that you are advising ‘puludzu’ type of people who may not see sense in your piece of advice. But that’s a good observation and well narreted piece of advice

    • Munthu amene anali wopephera akayamba kuba amakhala mbava yosanva chisioni #nothing new with Judas chakwera behavior

  37. A Chakwera munakanika kukweza mpingo wa Assembes of God kufanana ndi Catholic ndiye mukuganiza zolamula dziko masewera ntchito???? Ha ha ha ha ha……..you’ll remain in opposition 4ever ask JZU…

  38. kkkkk wayamba kuona sopano kuti mutharika akuchita bwino hope akatha kuwelenga papepalapo apitanso pa ground akaona zomwe mutharika akuchita hahahahahaha hater alwys failer

  39. A Chakwera ndi ndaninso inu? Mukudziwa chani inu? Mwangokhala ndi moyo wadyela basi, I swear wit my life simudzalamula Malawi, Chipani chanu anthu anotopa nacho ndi nkhadza zomwe chimadziwika nazo

  40. Ndimatha kupalasa njinga nkulinga udapalasapo so don’t talk too much God is watching. A good leader must always help in solving problems but not like Wat you are doing.

  41. First appreciation from Chakwera to Mutharika since 2014 tripartite elections…. You can’t only see that things are rosy but a survey must be conducted which the paper is used so that all the analysis should be shown…

  42. Chakwera ndiye ndani?? Munthu osayamika ngati uyu sindinamuone, all the time chomwe amaziwa nkunyoza basi….iwe unachita chani ku assemblies nthawi yomwe unali president minus kuwabera akristu ako ndalama?

  43. Talk is cheaper but action is louder than word, so what about you Mr Chakwera because ur good in talking and opposing everything and l respect dat just because its ur job as opposition reader u have to oppose if u can’t Oppose which means u won’t be Opposition reader they can replace you,l am not Surprise to hear such opposing words from you bigman dats ur job,even if DPP can do right thing u cant say congatulations unless u must move from opposition to be government chief whip its how u can crap hands to de government ndi zopusa zomwe momwe achitira ena

  44. inu achakwera nthawi zonse kumangonyoza inu mwapangapo chani chomwe mwachita poti sumunakhalepo president wadziko mufuna mangonyoza nzanu basi ndinu achitsiru ndithu

  45. Kkkkkk chipongwe kobasi, koma akunena zoona coz mkuluyu momwe adalowera m’boma kwa ineyo palibe chitukuko chomwe ndikuchionapo mwina kwinaku

    • Ife Ndye tikuona aise,but what i’ve seen is even atapanga chitukuko chapamwamba you and your politics minded you won’t appreciate it bcz you hate him

    • Mr Ofatsa travel a lot around Malawi and see what the government is doing. You can’t judge a person failing if development projects are not happening in your area. Blame your lazy MPs which you put in the seat. That’s why many people die poor coz they fail to prioritize things if you travel to other districts you will notice that people there are far much behind than where you are coming from and the government is setting priorities in those areas. Even your Chakwela knows that. Just travel and make your own assessment that talk rubbish

    • Apatu ndikufotokoza chilungamo coz sindingaloze zomwe wapanga ngati sindili kuziona, ndiye sinkhani yakuti iweyo upezelepo mwayi yonyozela ine chifukwa chakuti ndaima pa chilungamo

    • Even atapanga chitukuko you won’t appreciate because mumadana ndi president that is why country won’t go far,so Mr whatever you call yourself go to hell,we don’t need to change president like shoes…

    • Bwana Ofatsa,nzosatheka kuti inuyo musawone kalikonse kabwino komwe president wachita.Mukatero mwanama.Kapena muli ku joweni eti?

    • Mudzitchulatu zomwe wachita, wachita chani chanzelu iyeyu? Popeza ineyo sindili kuziona, kodi kapena mwina chitukuko mukunenacho mukunena chakuba ndalama zaboma mkumalemeletsa pa nyumba yawo?

  46. Iyeso osangotha mawu apa chakwera unapanga chani ku mpingo? Unangobako ndalama za mpingo even ndi kachitukuko kamodzi kokha osapangako nde ungayendese dziko? Mavuto okhaokha

  47. This is a PAINFUL truth, its like you have a distinction in Engineering, but failing to deliver on the ground, failing to apply theory to come to practical,thus what Muntharika is doing.

    • Koma akunena zoona nanga peter wapanga chanzelu chanji chiloweleni pa mpando umenewu undiuzeko iweyo coz kuno kwathu anyapapi amenewa palibe chili chonse chomwe akuchitapo moti 2019 kuno ku salima sindikudziwa ngati mkulu ameneyu adzaone Mp

    • Koma or zitavuta bwanji MCP siyingadzawine ma mp anuwo mudzakhala nawo ku opposition . Ngati adakanika Kamuzu , Tembo ndi Gwanda osawinapo munthawi yamatipate uyuyu sizingatheke koma poti anthu a mcp ndinu aliuma mumalota zoti tsiku lina mudzawinapo koma dziko lidasintha ili palibeso zobwerera mmbuyo.

  48. Kod inu achakwela inu ndye ayani inu mwaba za mpingo uko kmaxo mwalephera kuyendetsa boma ndye mkumat muyendetse dziko? Hhhhaa zochititsa manyaz izi
