Tell Malawians what Electoral Reforms Bills are – Chiefs

109

Chiefs in the country have said that it is important to tell Malawians what Electoral Reforms Bills are before pushing government on the matter.

Prominent chiefs such as Ngolongoliwa , Kyungu , Kawinga and Lukwa have accused Public Affairs Committee (PAC) of pushing government too much without enough public awareness on the Electoral Reforms Bills.

Senior Chief Ngolongoliwa

Senior Chief Ngolongoliwa: Has faulted PAC. 

In a petition to the Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya and President Peter Mutharika, chiefs led by Paramount Ngolongoliwa asked the speaker and president to hold the tabling of the bills to pave way for more public awareness.

According to the chiefs, Malawi cannot afford a 50+1 presidential election system because of the economic hardships affecting Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC).

Themba Mkandawire who is lawmaker for Blantyre City Centre received the petition at the august house on behalf of the speaker.

The religious grouping PAC has slated 13th December as the day it will hold peaceful countrywide demonstrations because government failed to table the bills in parliament before 29th November, 2017.

  7. Lot people in our country re illiterate education wise, then politics came while the majority were still uneducated. Today Chiefs re begging the Parliamentarians to go and teach their people about ” Electoral Reforms” b4 they vote into ” Law”. This is good signs from the Chiefs of understanding the ” Constitution”. Therefore, we need to support our Chiefs, inaddition to: Parliament must visits the people and teach them the real function of this house.

  8. This trend has been practiced since slavery days but change still happened.

    During Muluzi regime when there was a task force of Chiefs which included Inkosi Mberwa, Kaomba, Lukwa and others who were used to campaign for third term.

    During one party regime mafumu were used to campaign for one party state. They denounced multipartism.

    During slave trade some chiefs were selling their people for salt, sugar ndi zina

    During colonialism, some chiefs were procolonialists.

    Change is coming and its inevitable…

Komanso mafumu ake adyera ngati amenewo who wud take them seriously. These pple love money alot and hopefully dpp is behind all this move. Tell those greedy chiefs that if politicians can manage to loot billions of govt money, how wud they fail to provide money for elections.

  23. Insane…. It also means they don’t know their roles as chiefs…because as custodians of the citizens they r in wrong positions…don’t take chances…u r making them lose their integrity.. The more u r savaging them the more the citizens suffers…this is unpatriotic.

  30. Pathetic Chiefs! What is your business in politics? So you are sent and used by politicians like MOPS in houses? You are foolish idiots! Go home and attend to problems of your subjects! Zimikhanjo zanuzo zikutinyasapo APA!

  31. Our Chiefs are political and there isd no iaota of truth left in them. In fact we need to start to choose chiefs based on ones knowledge and not blood reslationship becase they have become a liabilirty to Malawi

  32. People try democracy, money,quarter system, federation, freedom etc.nou you are busy with electoral reforms bills koma mtendere ukusowa mu njila zonse.samalani inu ili ndi dziko mutha Nazi iziii

  33. Useless!. Malawians are very intelligent. The moment bills are discussed in Parliament,they learn.
    The present system was also said to be difficult to understand before 1994. But we learnt and voted.
    How many financial loan bills passed on behalf of Malawians have been explained before tabling?

  34. I agree with them PAC ili pa changu kwambili…First akanapita kaye kwa anthu kuwaphunzitsa ndikuwafunsa ngati akufuna ma electoral reforms…M’mene ndikudziwila in 50+1 mu mayiko mwina ikubweletsa zisokonezo kwambili

Mmene amati akugulitsa msb amkati apanga consult pamene ayi, Msb ilikuti lero? Amene mukukananu, tayesani kukhala pa neutral position. Because mawa mudzakhala inu mbali inayo ndipo you won’t regret.

  35. there has been extensive consultations made and the chiefs are aware about the Reform Bills; but it’s taking too long to have the bills presented in parly; our chiefs: don’t pretend today!
