JZU Ready to be 2nd Vice President

Without beating about the bush MCP President and Leader Opposition John Tembo on Sunday made it crystal clear that he will accept the post of second vice president if offered.

As a government of unity, the Malawi constitution empowers the President to appoint a second vice president from an opposition party.

"I will accept the position if offered and work with all my dedication to help develop our country," said Tembo in an exclusive interview with zodiak online.

"Of course this would not mean that I will quit MCP but as an indication of willingness to work together as a country. I am happy with the current government it believes in consultation and at the same time it is a listening government".

Since President Joyce Banda was sworn in Tembo has met her twice where it is believed that consultations on recent appointments were made.

"I have met her twice and I am happy that we now have a President we can talk to but I can not tell you what we discussed," said Tembo.

He said President Banda is proving to be a great leader and that all stakeholders must come forward to help her.

"Who knew that Zambia or South Africa could give us fuel? The previous government worked as an island made enemies will all our neighbours," said the Leader of Opposition.

"Also look at the cabinet, a combination of people from across the board with great capabilities."

He said he was also happy that his son, John Tembo junior, has been appointed as deputy High Commissioner to London.

"For the past years my well qualified son could not get a job, his crime being that his father is Leader of Opposition. As a people we should not live like that so I am happy that finally this government has given my son a job," said Tembo.

Tembo also paid tribute to Bernard Sande, newly appointed High Commissioner to London, as a great career diplomat.  - Zodiak Online

You old man, what you want is to reap us off, and we fully know that. Please keep on cheating others and not me.

Obaba tsopano kumeneko ndekubwera. Thanks for the appreciation on good developments ever made by the president. Indeed even myself I was quite overwhelmed to here that even Guebuza himself could make an offer of food stuffs and diesel for the funeral ceremony a thing which only manifests that JB is a good leader and I hope with fresh discussions on inland port something good will come up. Obaba akakupatsani u 2nd veep muthandizeni mayiyu basi komanso mukapitilize kunenapo pamene mwawona kuti sipali bwino kuti Malawi apite patsogolo.
