Atsogoleri a HRDC akufuna Pulezidenti Peter Mutharika achotse paudindo wapampando wa bungwe la MEC a Jane Ansah ndi makomi-shona ena onse kuphatikizapo akuluakulu ena aku MEC. Ndi nkhondo imene mpaka pano siinathe.

Kuphatikizapo apa HRDC ikufuna kuti a Mutharika asayinire msanga mabilu amene Nyumba ya Malamulo inagwirizana wokhuza kayendetsedwe ka chisankho.  Mabiluwo anapita kwa a Mutharika masiku apitawa ndipo akuyenera kuwasayinira pasanathe masiku 21 kuchokera pomwe adawalandira. Mwa zina mabiluwa akawasayinira adzathandiza kuti dziko lino liyambe kugwiritsa ntchito loti wopambana pa chisankho cha pulezidenti azipeza mavoti oposa theka kapena kuti 50% + 1.

Ngakhale mneneri wa a Mutharika a Mgeme Kalirani ananena kuti mtsogoleri wa dziko linoyu akuunika nkhaniyi, a HRDC akuti a Mutharika akuchedwetsa kusainako ndipo iwo tsopano angoganiza zopita ku nyumba za boma nkukachita mbindikiro.

Pa msonkhano wake waposachedwapa pa bwalo la Njamba mu mzinda wa Blantyre a Mutharika anati atopa ndi zomwe bungwe la HRDC likuchita kaamba koti iloli “silili pa mwamba pa lamulo.

“Kuno ku Malawi kuli boma. Ndikuwauza a HRDC kuti ndatopa ndi zochita zawo ndipo pano sindilekereranso zopusazi. Nthawi yonseyi ndimakhala chete chifukwa sindimafuna kuti zomwe zinachitika pa July 11 zija zichitikenso nthawi imene mchimwene wanga anali pulezidenti.

Zimandikhuza kwambiri. Koma pano sindilolanso kuti anthu ena     abweretse chisokonezo,” anatero a Mutharika pa msonkhanowo.

Ubale wa HRDC ndi boma la a Mutharika wakhala uli wa gwede-gwede kaamba koti mbali ziwirizi sizitha kukambirana pa zomwe zikusokonekera. Masiku apitawa apolisi anamanga atsogoleri a HRDC – a Timothy Mtambo, Gift Trapence komanso a MacDonald Sembereka. Izi zinachitika a Mutharika atangonena kuti salekeleranso a HRDC kusokoneza mtendere womwe wuli m’dziko muno.

Atsogoleri a HRDC nawo akuti sangaope aliyense chifukwa iwo zimene akuchita ndi zoloredwa ndi malamulo a dziko lino. Mwa chitsanzo a Timothy Mtambo, omwe ndi wapampando wa bungwe la HRDC anauza wailesi ina m’dziko muno kuti iwo apitiliza kuchita zionetsero kaamba koti akufuna chilungamo chioneke.

“Kupita ku nyumba zaboma kukachita m’bindikiro sikulakwa kaamba koti nyumbazo ndi za Amalawi. Ndi misonkho ya Amalawi. Ngati china chake chinga-tichitikire Amalawi akudziwa anthu amene angawaganizire chifukwa akutiopseza kuti tisachite mbindikiro. A chipani cha DPP [Democratic Progressive] anawalola bwanji kuchita zionetsero?

“Komanso a Mutharika ndi pulezideti wa DPP yokha kapena to-nsefe? Apange zinthu ngati pulezidenti wa dziko osati wa chipani chimodzi. Ife sitisiya kuchita zione-tsero mpaka zomwe tikuona kuti zikulakwika zitakonzedwa,” anatero a Mtambo pa wailesiyo.

Pa zionetsero za HRDC masiku apitawo Amalawi anaona m’mene mabanki ndi mabizinesi ena anatchingira malo awo a binzinesi poopa zachipolowe zomwe zimatsatirapo zionetsero zikachitika. Sukulu zina zinafika popereka tchuthi pa tsikuli poopa mkwiyo wa anthu ochita mademo ndi zipolowe.

Tingayende bwanji?

Zaonetseratu kuti kupikisana komwe kukuchitika pakati pa boma ndi a HRDC komanso zipani zotsutsa boma sikukupindulira aliyense. Amene amapindula mwina ndi aupandu amene amatengerapo mwai pa zionetsero nkumaba katundu wa anthu. Pamene mademo kapena kuti zionetsero ndi zololedwa ndi Malamulo oyendetsera dziko, umbanda umene ukuchitika pa nthawi ya zionetsero ndi upandu – ndipo uku nkuphwanya malamulo.

Ambiri tikunena pano akulira chifukwa bizinesi zawo zinathera pomwe anthu ena aupandu anaswa malo awo abizinesi nkuba katundu yense. Ena galimoto ndi nyumba zawo zinatenthedwa pomwe anthu ena aupandu, mu dzina la mademo anawachita chipongwe.

Mwina mbali ziwirizi zitakumana maso ndi maso kudzakhala kosavuta kuuzana chilungamo. M’mene zikukhalira pano, palibe chomwe Amalawi apindulirepo pa mkanganowu.
