DPP-Kabwila feud: “If you miss the ball don’t miss the man”


If it were in a football match, the Arthur Mutharika Vs Jessie Kabwila case could have been said to have reached a point whereby a Coach commands his troops that; “If you miss the ball don’t miss the man.”

But being in politics what is happening is rather politics of the jungle commonly practiced by failed leaders.

It has been revealed that the DPP government in Malawi irked by the voice of Salima West MP Jessie Kabwila in pointing out the government’s failures and areas needed to improve has spiked on her by cancelling her daughter’ internship in the Department of international cooperation.

The daughter of the fearless Academician cum Parliamentarian-Louisa Angela Kabwila-is a student and research assistant at the United States International University and was doing her internship in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

We have seen a letter signed by Secretary of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Brian Ng’oma, telling the Parliamentarian’s daughter- Louisa Angel Kabwila-that all is over in as far as her internship is concerned. it is dated 2nd March 2016 ref. No. EA/1/3/45.

The letter reads in part: “I regret to inform you that due to limited office space in some of our department where you were also supposed to be attached, we have decided to terminate your internship”.

The letter states that Louisa who is in her 20s  last day of internet ship was March 4 2016.

But Malawians have observed that this is DPP’s way of trying to silence people who talk sense in the country.
“The DPP just want to punish the Female Parliamentarian, who recently was arrested by the Police on trumped up charges of treason but this is something that will put them to shame,” said a Lilongwe based political analyst.

The battle has now spilled to her family because there is no much that the DPP government  could come u from the fake charges given to Kabwira and her accomplices.

“This fight strayed at PAC. This Whatsup story is just a cover up otherwise at  PAC the opposition led by the mighty MCP, clearly put it on record that the DPP government had failed because every sector of government has collapse, it is not working,” said a political commentator in Blantyre.

He added: “Look at the health sector, talk of the finance, education, agriculture, everything is falling apart and njala is everywhere with people sleeping at Admarc depots during this rainy season.”

In her remarks, Dr Jessie Kabwila, who did not want to comment on the matter said: “I just wish they stuck to me, not my child?  They have crossed a line, uyu ndimwana, what wrong has she done.

“Just because she is my daughter then that’s a crime, eeesh! That is not a crime, this battle has now been elevated to another level but I will continue stating that there is njala and they have failed both the rural and urban Malawians because it is so clear that the majority are suffering. It is not only women and children but the whole nation.”

Kabwila has vowed not to relent, saying: “I know this terminstion is another way to silemce me as Spokesperson of MCP, an attempt to punish me for standing up for the starving Malawins, for saying kulinjala kunja kuno.”

Malawians will  remember Kabwila and Mutharika to have crossed the sword of each other during the infamous Academic freedom while Kabwila was a lecture at the University of Malawi while Mutharika was Minister of Education.
