A supporter of the Mutharika Government could not hide saying I told you so on COVID-19, He writes, as i had been waiting keenly on the covid-19 address by this current administration, boom my wait was over. The address today by Chakwera was about covid-19, the one that did not exist some days ago as they happily said in their campaign gimmicks. The one they called names on then government to the extent that one of their own by the name of Ulemu Msungama waged war on our frontline soldiers in Lilongwe.
One of the most interesting things was him realizing that the spread has escalated in the past three weeks. Just for the record, these three weeks are the campaign days and also the days the lockdown measure was stopped by HRDC. These said three weeks are the ones that people were being regarded as heroes if they chase health workers when doing their job on this pandemic. The incidents in Mzuzu, Lilongwe and Ndirande just to mention a few.
Mr President sir, you might recall when your predecessor put several measures in place to fight this pandemic. But through your boys you never gave a hand to the success of these measures to the point of using the courts. It was quite clear that your interest was not our good health, but your own interest were the ones that came first at the expense of our precious lives.
Arrogantly we clapped hands when your Vice president and your alliance partner the former president Joyce Banda said there is no covid-19 in this country and that the DPP govt was fooling Malawians.
As a matter of principal, an apology by these individuals is the starting point to your efforts in changing our understanding to this issue that you never told us in the first place. Your silence in time when your voice could have helped this situation is regrettable and quite hypocritical to preach about it now.
