of 7 year terms and the ruling party...

weekend papers were awash with what usually happens in Malawi politics more especially in the president's second term of office..
It was reported that one Member of Parliament moved a motion which if passed will increase the current 5 year presidential and parliamentary terms to 7 years..
When I read it my memory raced back to the time of the former president in the multiparty era, Bakili Muluzi, who using some Alliance for Democracy MP a Khwauli Msiska and UDF's Lucius Banda to ask for a third term and the open term... Malawians denied this one then..
Now one Viyazi has already forgotten how UDF and Muluzi failed and has brought up the issue again... My small head is telling me that the president has already started to fear what life will be like after 2014.. The DPP instead of addressing succession problems are busy to yet tarnish their image which has already been done so by quota, diesel and FOREX shortage, electricity and water problems, the Lhomwe thing.
If Malawi voted today....
