Mutharika to be accompanied by MCP?

Nation newspaper (16 May 2012) carried a story on the sports page which indicates that some football officials in the central region have been taken to task for allowing DPP women accompany their Acting President, Peter Mutharika, to CIVO Stadium last weekend.

I am baffled to find out why this issue is being blown out of proportion. Since when did it become a crime for a political leader to be accompanied by his/her supporters?

Show me a day when- John Tembo, President Joyce Banda, Peter Mutharika, Kamlepo Kalua, Kamuzu Chibambo, Mark Katsonga- will walk alone with party stalwarts, and I will in return show you a bird without wings.

Could someone explain to me what these so called football authorities are thinking to raise such a “shallow” argument.

Did they expect MCP women to flood CIVO Stadium when it was Peter attending the function? Wasn’t it during the same weekend that Vice President Khumbo Kachali attended the belated Labour Day celebrations at the same venue. Who came with him? PP supporters, I am made to believe.

My conclusion on this matter is that, some people become nervous for nothing. You mean somebody could be fired for letting DPP women get into CIVO Stadium?

Malawians, are we this “naively cautious” to think that just because the government has changed then everyone affiliated to the old regime ceases to be a Malawian with all the privileges and rights of a legitimate citizen?
Let’s stop being unnecessarily political. Some of these issues are trivial and they can pass quietly.

So, I believe
