Vice-President of the Republic of Malawi, I would come out of my shell and speak on widespread talk about my fallout with my boss, President Peter Mutharika.
If I were the Veep, I would appreciate that there would be no harm in coming out in the open to speak about the state of my relationship with my boss just when government public relations machine has left Malawians guessing.
Oh yes, if I were the Veep I would realise that keeping silent on such a sensitive matter can have far-reaching political and personal consequences.
If the speculation is just a classic exaggeration by rumour mongers, I would put it on the record, saying “Folks all that buzz about a silent spat with my boss is imaginary and we are cordially co-handling matters of the State.”
Yes, Right Honourable Chilima, while silence is said to be golden, I would realise that it depends on particular situations.
That is if I were Saulos Klaus Chilima who cryptically told us that nsato saweta and to stop tolerating mediocrity. But I am not that youthful Veep who rides MG 2 . n
