Good Friends, I wish to congratulate our beloved President His Excellency Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika and my successor, our new Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima. I would like to sincerely thank our former President Dr. Joyce Banda, for giving me the opportunity to serve Malawians as their Vice President. Let me also thank all Malawians for...

Just like Peter, the late Bingu was also rejected by nearly two-thirds of Malawians in 2004. But he turned the rejection around with his powerful inaugral speech. With that epoch-making speech, people who voted for him (UDF-ers) started loathing him; those who voted against him embraced him. That speech had everything, detail, clarity, hope et al....

The contentious Tripartite Elections are now over with the release of official results and declaration of the winner by the Malawi Electoral Commission (MEC). Professor Peter Mutharika was “declared” the winner and has since been sworn in as the President of the Republic of Malawi. This is the reality we must all come to term with, whether we do...

Perhaps, with hindsight, Ama was not exactly confused when she expressed reservations on the conduct of the just-ended tripartite elections. When his voice broke at the beginning of his epoch-making speech late Friday night, I do not think it was only in deference to the soul of the young boy who was needlessly killed in post-election violence in Mangochi....

Fellow Malawians; Today at 6.15am, I called the President-elect, Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika, who has since been sworn in as the 5th President of the Republic of Malawi. I called to congratulate him and to wish him well. As you all know we had been given a hearing at the High Court in Blantyre yesterday. Three issues were presented for determination...

As the governing People’s Party scratch its heads over its jarring loss in last week’s controversial presidential, parliamentary and local elections, the role played by the West in propping up the Banda regime should nudge Malawi, which turns 50 this year, to move in a direction that will bring about true economic independence. That is all there...

Critics say she was politically naive, failed to deal convincingly with Cashgate corruption scandal, and was too often absent “I learned that leadership is about falling in love with the people and the people falling in love with you. It is about serving the people with selflessness, with sacrifice and with the need to put the common good ahead...

My fellow Malawians, If truth be told, the current political impasse is as a result of a rude a wakening by some quarters after noting that another Mutharika will be our next president. To them, they thought Malawi was not ready for another Mutharika hence using every trick in and outside the book to rob Mutharika of his victory. I say to them that...
