Of Kamplepo Kalua’s photo-op and public sympathy pouring in

Kamlepo Kalua: he was found at Kwacha roundabout tied with blue ropes

“You see, the point is that the strongest man in the world, is he who stands most alone.”

Henrik Ibsen

The reappearing of the Member of Parliament for Rumphi East Kamlepo Kalua in the wee hours of  Sundaymorning, triggered an outpouring of public sympathy, with thousands taking to social media, ridiculing the ruling Democratic Progressive Party of playing archaic politics.

Kalua was found at Kwacha roundabout after missing for a week, and according to reports, he was abducted by unknown gangsters for political reasons. Kalua is an indisputable public figure, considering his bold stance on corruption, which is rampant in government departments.

However, his recent actions in the fight against corruption in the DPP-led administration, does not exempt the parliamentarian from playing some dirty politics. After all, he is the top official of the former ruling People’s Party, and his battle against the ruling DPP, started during the reign of late Bingu Wa Mutharika.

For the sake of safeguarding my conscience, I choose not to sympathise with honourable Kalua. My conscience is demanding me to distance myself from this cowardice politics. In fact, Mr. Kalua is desperately trying to buy public sympathy by looking at the circumstances surrounding his “missing” up to the time he was “found.”

One would wonder why the relatives chose to report the incident to social media first, instead of the police who are the rightful agency to do the investigation into the whereabouts of the prominent person. If the comment from the National police spokesperson James Kadadzera, is anything to go by, then it is fair and just to conclude that the lawmaker abducted himself, and his relatives knew where he was during his self-imposed abduction. Since the time he is said to have been “missing,” no relative came to the public to display any unfeigned concern for the missing man, who is indisputably the pillar of the family.

I will not talk about his charming look while in blue ropes; people with a good frame of mind have already made clear analysis on that. The DPP, a party blessed with all characters, could not sink so low as tying their political enemy with blue ropes, considering that BLUE is their colour.

In all this, I see Mr. Kamlepo Kalua, who speaks boldly in public, but feels insecure when he is alone, hence the move to ride on the public sympathy.

As one of the vocal opposition leaders, I would expect Mr. Kalua to display some sort of seriousness, and courage to give the masses confidence that he can deliver, if given a chance to run this impoverished Sub-Saharan African country.

I am not intending to stop Mr. Kalua from providing vigorous, unrelenting opposition to the DPP-led administration’s corrupt practices, but rather to ask the honourable to be serious in his endeavour to be an influential figure in the society. Malawi is a poor country, and its bail-out process, requires serious-minded leaders, not the comedy Mr. Kalua is unknowingly associating himself with.
