Muluzi why Tembo the murderer?

Malawi's most confused political engineer, Bakili Muluzi. After cheating Malawians for 5 years, now he has his tail behind his legs and knows that he cannot stand on May 19th. What a fool!

The opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and United Democratic Front (UDF) alliance has already hit troubles waters from discomfort by staunch supporters of the two parties.

The supporters say that if the main agenda of the MCP/UDF alliance is for the good of the Malawi nation, then the UDF leader Bakili Muluzi should come out in the open and explain to Malawians why he thinks people should vote for John Tembo who was also leader of opposition in the just dissolved Parliament.

Douglas Kamaliza of Chiradzulu says that from 1993 to 2004, Muluzi has always told Malawians that John Tembo is a very ban man, evil and has blood in his hands because of his evil dealings during the one party rule under late Kamuzu Banda such that Malawians should not think in anyway of voting for him as the country’s next president.

“Muluzi has to convince us and tell us what good qualities he has found in John Tembo the same man the Muluzi administration took to court for the murder of Aaron Gadama, Dick Matenje, Twaibu Sangala and David Chiwanga” he said.

The famous Mwanza murder case went in favour of Tembo although people in Malawi still believe John Tembo organised the killing of the three cabinet ministers and Member of Parliament.

“When has Tembo become a good man to rule this country? We can see that Muluzi only wants to use Tembo the same way he used us to vote for President Bingu wa Mutharika,” said Kamaliza.

Kamaliza said that it is sad that Tembo may be thinking of getting any vote from the southern region just because people want to make Muluzi happy.

“Unless Muluzi tells us the good qualities in John Tembo then things may work for the opposition but if Muluzui’s aim is to fight Dr Bingu using Tembo, then he must forget it,” he said.

Hastings Magombo from Ntcheu said the opposition MCP/UDF alliance is not going to go far because Tembo and Muluzi are kind of people who cannot work together. He said the two cannot work together for a long time because of their poor past record.
“The working relationship between Tembo and Muluzi is that of an axe where you only like it when climbing up a tree but after use you throw it away. These two cannot work together because both are big hearted and both of them want to be national leaders as a result this alliance is surely going to fail,” he said.

He gave an example of Italy where these alliances collapse soon after the elections. He said the Malawi scenario may be the same or that even before the elections, the alliance my crumble.

Alfred Jiva from Manase in the commercial city, Blantyre said that during his time in power, Bakili Muluzi snatched all the
property belonging to the late Kamuzu including houses and to make matters worse Muluzi arrested the late Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda when he was critically ill.

At one of the political rallies, MCP president John Tembo said that he was not going to forgive anybody who ill-treated the late Hastings Kamuzu Banda.

Tembo was apparently referring to Bakili Muluzi.

Jiva said that apart from ill-treating the late Kamuzu Banda, Muluzi also showed all his hate for the opposition MCP when he refused the Malawi Police bury the former late Inspector of Malawi Police Service, Mac Williams Lunguzi.

Following Muluzi’s instructions Lunguzi was buried as an ordinary man, a behaviour Jiva said was Muluzi’s hate campaign on the opposition MCP and its leadership.

When he died in a road accident, Lunguzi had just joined active politics and was being tipped to become Malawi Congress Party’s leader.

“If the Malawi Electoral Commission had not stopped Muluzi from contesting the Presidency as a result of the Malawi Constitution, would he have gone to work with MCP in an alliance?”

Jiva agreed with many other Malawians who feel that Bakili Muluzi has not gone into an alliance with the MCP for the good of the nation but rather to get at President Dr Bingu wa Mutharika.

Jiva said the alliance is not going to help Malawians in anyway.

Interestingly, those that are opposing the UDF/MCP alliance including Friday Jumbe, Leonald Mangulama, George Ntafu and Harry Thomson are being threatened by Muluzi not to speak out – Weekend Nation April 18-19, 2009.
