People’s Party (PP) presidential running mate, I would not be careless with what I say in the countdown to the tripartite elections because it may lead to assumptions that I am childish.
If I were the PP running mate I would not get excited to the point of going out of my way by alleging that Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president the Reverend Dr Lazarus Chakwera left the CCAP out of frustration to join the Assemblies of God Church because he was denied a scholarship to study theology abroad.
How I wish I were the fella that is Sosten because I would realise that being a young and energetic politician with lots of potential, people or party followers would expect to hear issues from me on how I will make a difference as vice-president of the republic should Amayi win on May 20 other than being involved in mud-slinging kind of politics.
If only I were Sosten, I would appreciate that the reason my good ‘ole mum chose me was to bring in a new breed of politics and inspire the youth and not act as a ‘baby’ on the podium.
I would realise if I were Gwengwe that one reaps what he or she sows and if I am failing to live up to expectations now, then people would as well focus on other parties in search of young leaders that they can look up to, and in this case they would rather turn to the likes of Atupele Muluzi and Saulos Chilima.
Surely, I would accept the harsh reality that I am not the same youthful and vibrant politician that people used to admire and respect because of my constructive views and, sadly, I have been reduced to a ‘baby.’
That is if I were the cheese boy that is Sosten, unfortunately I am not the PP presidential running mate.
