Almost two weeks President Lazarus Chakwera is outside the country without any word amid tropical Cyclone Freddy that has hit hard Southern part of the country destroying properties, killing people.
But Chakwera chose to remain abroad three days after the Cyclone hit hard Malawi.
When South Africa was in crisis last year their president cut short his trip to attend to the crisis.
When Mozambique was in crisis since last week their president Nyusi cut short his trip to attend to the crisis.
Southern region, the rubble, is in deep troubles. May heaven see us. It is scaring now.
We don’t have the roads, houses and electricity to withstand these rains.
More sad, the little harvests we were expecting in the gardens are getting destroyed.
No hope. Being a gentile amidst Israelites is such huddling.
Meanwhile, the Jewish president is enjoying his holiday somewhere with his entourage. Not moved.
At a point, Ramaphosa had to excuse himself from international meeting because his country was hit by blackouts, I mean not a cyclone, blackouts.
We live with them daily. Our president would leave us in national blackout and fly to USA, to us and him, it was not a problem, but to Ramaphosa, it was, worth cutting shot a meeting.
If it wasn’t the rubble affected, and the Jews were in trouble he would have rushed.
By whatever means he would have been in Jerusalem by the 9th. But cares about the rubble.
Perhaps, instead of him finishing his work on clearing the rubble, nature has answered his call.
No leader would be at peace staying in a foreign land at a time his people’s lives are at risk.
Malawi now in Crisis their president and his wife they are enjoying shopping in Qatar while his people are dying.
We are a sorry country with incompetent, clueless, government, sees nothing, hears nothing, knows nothing and does nothing thats Chakwera
