For the past few weeks following the death of the first lady, there were calls from various sections of society for the goodwill displayed around the funeral to continue. Plenty people also commented that good would come out of all of it. I was one of those hoping good would come out but somehow I was not optimistic.
Then last week after the Sec 65 ruling, daggers were drawn. Almost all party’s demanded the heads of certain parliamentarians. For me this was the first sign of that goodwill evaporating.
Today it’s that story again – Impeachment. Only this time it’s targeting more than just Bingu!
Now someone point out the unity that Government, John Tembo and others preached about during the mourning period! Where is this madness going to take us?
Someone said two weeks ago that Malawians are like Somali’s. We rise up together, united against a common enemy. Once that enemy has been defeated, we go straight back to fighting each other. One would think that poverty, infighting, greed, injustice and jealousy are our common enemies. I have concluded only death is, sadly!
God save our nation from our real enemies – our greedy insensitive politicians!
