“Malawi slowly becoming a Pariah State under Chakwera’s Tonse administration”-Chaponda

DPP legislator for Mulanje South West constituency, Dr. George Chaponda

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Great leaders can be spotted through their questions. This was evidenced yesterday in Parliament during question time to the President when Dr. George Chaponda took time grooming Lazarus Chakwera on the consequences of honeymooning with Israel.

The opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislator for Mulanje South West constituency, Dr. George Chaponda asked President Chakwera about his administration’s foreign policy in relation to his decision to establish a Malawi diplomatic mission in Jerusalem, Israel.

Chaponda, a former foreign affairs minister, said Malawi during the one-party state, dictator Kamuzu Banda took an independent position of honeymooning with apartheid South Africa and decided not to follow what frontline states were parachuting.

Chaponda asked if the position to open Malawi embassy in Jerusalem will lead to Malawi being treated as a pariah state

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) regime is well known for working in isolation with other countries.

The party was once criticized for aiding armies’ rebels of UNITA and RENAMO.

It was during the regime of the Malawi congress party when Samora Machel President of Mozambique was killed in a plane crash when he was coming from a war council meeting with leaders of Angola, Zambia, and Zaire.

On the agenda were South Africa and Malawi support to the rebel armies of UNITA and RENAMO.

The plane crash raises instant suspicious that the apartheid state of South Africa and the One-party regime of the Malawi Congress Party May have been involved.

Several thousand youths ransacked Malawi’s embassy and stoned South Africa’s trade mission to protest the death of President Samora Machel.

At the Malawian Embassy which was a few blocks away from the South African Embassy building in central Maputo, invaders destroyed furniture and burned the Malawian flag.

A slogan written on a wall said ?Banda is a murderer, ? a reference to President H. Kamuzu Banda of Malawi, the only African nation that had diplomatic relations with Apartheid South Africa.

On the Lake Malawi dispute, the mediators were all from frontline states and you could not expect them to support the genuine claims of Malawi on the Lake against Tanzania which was a frontline state.

It is yet to be known if this is what Chakwera wants to turn Malawi into a Pariah State.

A pariah state may face international isolation, sanctions, or even an invasion by nations who find its policies, actions, or its very existence unacceptable.

  1. Actually Malawi, Zimbabwe and Tanzania got involved in that war because they were protecting their economic investments…

    So many countries such Rusia, USA got involved indirectly… and the death of Samora Mash… was not done by Kamuzu as you claim but it is rumoured that Samola decrared war with Malawi and told those countries present to join him to fight Malawi… so SA didnt want to be as gullible as you think to go against Malawi for no reason… SA thought it wise to block that unnecessary war with Malawi that was well coordinated with another European country..
    Do you history search well some countries found it a better solution to eliminate Samora than starting another war with Malawi…

  2. The problem with people like you gullibles…you want everyone’s enemy to be our enemy too.. Malawi cant be an enemy of Israel because some countries are hating her…
