Speaker Richard Msowoya MCP betrayal regrettable  

The only man who really benefited from MCP's 2014 election is the Right Hon Richard Msowoya. Now the speaker seems not to be showing any appreciation and is increasingly becoming ambitious. Sometimes it is good to accept reality. With all his resources and authority as a speaker and MP for Karonga Nyungwe, he still could not win a councilor seat...

Tall order to do list for Malawi’s DPP if they are to win 2019 election

This is what DPP must do if they are to win 2019 elections. Correct the mistakes of Bingu Wa Mutharika. Arrest all the ministers that stole tax money from 2004.

DPP boys propaganda amateurish: Case of laying wreaths during Chilembwe day

Today, the country is commemorating Chilembwe day. As is the tradition, a ceremony was conducted at the Providence Industrial Mission (PIM) in Chiradzulo today. President Peter Mutharika was in attendance so was MCP President Dr Lazarus Chakwera. The suprising thing was that the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) tabloids run by notorious DPP boys Martin Nkasala and Chance Chingwalungwalu were at...

Juliana Lunguzi: Come on Malawi, we can do better on Cholera!

I have learnt with sadness that we have this far, four known deaths from Cholera. The saddest thing about this is that beating cholera, unlike other diseases, requires no rocket science. Simple, day to day hygienic practices like washing hands before and after eating and after visiting toilets, covering food, washing fruits and vegetables thoroughly before consuming them and instituting an...

Z Allan Ntata’s Uncommon Sense: MALAWI’S CORRUPTION ACCOUNT (MCA)

If you take the time to think about it carefully and dispassionately, then you must come to the conclusion that what is surprising is not the fact that the United States government finally decided call time OUT on funding Malawi’s unrepentantly corrupt government, but the fact that it kept faith with it and continued to fund it for so...

Talking Blues: PP’s messy mess and all that glitters

From inception, chances that People’s Party (PP) would stand the test of time looked slim. Founded by the de facto alternative during Democratic Progressive Party (DPP)’s 2009 to 2012 reign of bad laws and terror, PP quickly attracted motley opportunists. Sadly, rather than benefit from the demise of former President Bingu wa Mutharika, PP turned out to be the biggest loser. You...

Malawi legal queens Habiba Osman and Aeysha Itimu trimmed to size: ‘Legal opinion is not a sacred commodity’

It has pleased two women lawyers, one of whom is a prominent activist figure and the other an upcoming, to suggest that sharing legal opinion on Facebook is childish and an act of show off to the world that one knows law. For the avoidance of gossip, the women are Habiba Osman and Aeysha Itimu. These women are not average...

George Kasakula: Malawians will not replace set of thieves with another

There is a pervasive self-serving view, almost some form of arrogance, that you see in the opposition parties these days. The mistaken view goes something like this. Because the DPP administration has messed our lives big time through poor governance, nepotism, incompetence and corruption, among other evils, then it is almost automatic, a done deal, that come 2019 Malawians will...
