According to Facebook and other social media outlets DPP Cadets say, there is only one man who will spread rumours about the death of President Peter Mutharika.
That man they write is Saulos Chilima.
They continue to write that Wishing the death of the President is his only option to get into power through the backdoor because everyone knows that Malawians cannot elect Saulos Chilima to lead Malawi.
On Facebook Mutharika supporters write that the rumours spreading now about President Mutharika’s death are Saulos Chilima’s creation. It his way of doing things, an expression of his wish.
They claim that this wish from Chilima is not new, Saulos Chilima has always wanted Mutharika dead so that he can take overpower.
He started plotting against President Mutharika as early as July 2014, barely two months after Peter Mutharika won election in May.
They story they tell is that time, he held his first meeting with some government officials where he expressed his intention to take over from Peter Mutharika before the term had expired.
So, they question, how else would he have taken over (before President Peter Mutharika’s term had ended) other than seeing the President dead first?
In September 2016, while the President was attending the United Nations General Assembly in New York, saulos Chilima formed a secret cabinet. He then proceeded to create and spread a rumour that the President was dead. It was Chilima’s plot to take overpower.
In May of 2019 last year, a few days before Malawi went to the polls, he spread another rumour that the President was dead.
His people spread the false news aggressively on social media, in some cases featuring air ambulances which they claimed had landed at the airport to pick the body of the President.
Then there came the Option 5 plot in March this year. Saulos Chilima influenced the judges to bring him back to the vice presidency. In his plan, he wanted to be in a position where he can orchestrate the assassination of President Mutharika so that he ascends to power.
He revealed this plot at a meeting with his party executive officials in March. In a leaked audio, he was caught telling his officials the Option 5 plot where he wished “the President dead so that I can take over.”
Plotting against the life of President Mutharika is part of his life.
So, this week according to DPP supporters, he is at it again. He told his aides that he was going to spread the rumour once again.
In no time, his sycophants have flooded Facebook with the rumour that the President is dead, that soldiers are at Saulos Chilima’s house providing him security as he prepares to take over as President of the Republic.
But this evil nature against who picked him as his Number 2 in the 2014 elections should not be surprising.
They say Saulos Chilima is a man who does not believe in himself. Put better, he is a man who is too ambitious but who clearly understands that he has no competence at all to achieve his heart desires
So, what he does to achieve his ambition is to summon the wickedness in him to get what he wants. Chilima is an evil man.
Saulos Chilima’s Past History of undermining bosses
This was his way of doing things when he was in the corporate world.
Wherever he worked — at Lever Brothers (now Unilever), at Southern Bottlers and Airtel Malawi — there are stories of how he gossiped out his seniors so that he could take over their position.
Those he worked with report that his rise to any position was never because he had proven himself as a competent. Rather, it was because he had gossiped out his seniors. That was his way.
In politics, he has gotten worse as a schemer who can kill a President if that helps him take over power.
That is what he has been trying to do with President Mutharika.
Chilima understands that he can never win an election because he knows that voters know that he is a wicked man!
His plan has therefore been to come to power through the backdoor, even if it means killing the President.
His aides say he tells them that he has never been in one position for more than five years. He always managed to scheme his way out to the next position. That is why he wants the President dead.
