Chilima out of cocoon

CMC is strongly horrified by the level of state of Political arrogance and negligence demonstrated by Chilima in his Statement through a Press Briefing that took place on July 1, 2022.

In a press statement made available to The Maravi Post signed by CMC Executive Director Phillip Kamangirah observes that Chilima’s action was to divert Malawians attention from serious matters against corruption to his personal and political satisfaction.

“We are of the view that the core of the briefing was not aimed at meeting the prospects of Malawians and instead, it was simply destined to deter the public devotion from his alleged corruption involvement.

“We were preordained to believe that the Press Briefing would be on matters of national importance as sued earlier, to the contrary, the Vice President blatantly attested to the nation that he is a liar,” reads part of CMC statement.

Kamangirah adds, “In his statement the Vice President claimed that in the Alliance Partners agreement, all things shall be done in consultation with the partners of the alliance. However, it is on record that all Alliance Partners had a meeting at State House last week and one is compelled to ask as to whether the issues he raised during the Press Briefing were agreed upon or not.

“Nonetheless, it is clear that the matters were never discussed at the meeting and this undoubtedly tells that the Vice President is not an honest man. He has ascertained to be in marriage with intellectual insanity and dishonest,”.

He explains further, “We re-count with great tremor having noticed that Vice President is running away from responsibilities by focusing on 2025 elections instead of telling Malawians the truth about his alleged involvement in corruption deals.

“This is taking Malawians for granted and a serious demonstration of naked leadership that is associated with grave pretended political counterfeit. It is sad to mention that instead of focusing on issues that Malawians are going through, he instead and pinpointed much on the 2025 elections which would be more advantageous to his personal interests. This is hypocrisy of the highest order revealed by the Vice President”.

“It is further shocking to note that the Vice President could for once imagine that the Alliance Agreement can rule superlative over the Constitution of Malawi.

“We call upon all Malawians to rally behind the Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) in its concerted effort in the fight against corruption,” concludes Kamangirah.

During the press conference Chilima demanded removal of presidential powers from being prosecuted on criminal matters.

Chilima also disclosed that Tonse Alliance set one term for him and Reverend Lazarus Chakwera.
