BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Vice President Saulos Chilima on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 made an emotional call for peace, co-existence and unity among Tonse Alliance politicians and supporters stressing that toxic politics will only make Malawi poorer.
“In Malawi there is one President. Full stop. There is only one Vice President, that is me. Let us work together to develop our country. You members of Tonse Alliance should help us develop the country. We can’t be talking politics everytime,” said Chilima at his home area of Nsipe where he received a new police post donated by the Chinese government.
“As Tonse Alliance politicians, show a good example to our followers. Teach them unity. Let us all work together. If the President comes here, let us all go there. If the former President Joyce Banda comes here, go there in large numbers. That is the spirit of Tonse Alliance,” added Chilima.
The Vice President went on to preach peace as the audience remained silent, it was cathedral silence that you could hear a pin drop.
“My concern is that we are behind on development and we cannot be politicking every day. Let us go to work and help our people,” he said.
The police post is a magnificent structure prompting the Chinese Ambassador to call for aggressive efforts to make the police station a model in Malawi.
“This is a beautiful day and I truly thank the Chinese Ambassador for donating this police post to the government. This is a timely donation. Security is a precursor for national development,” said Chilima.
