On May 21, Malawians will head to the polls to vote in the general elections. As such, Mary Nkhamanyachi Chilima, whose husband Saulos Chilima is the incumbent vice president and also contesting to be the next president of the country, recently released a music video to campaign for her husband under the UTM party. She sings and raps, and of course pandering to the vast number of Malawian youth.
Although I don’t understand the language, Chilima comes across as relatable and warm. I can’t help but think of the Nigerian equivalence of the this Malawian campaign. What comes to mind, former First Lady of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan. That said, it remains to be seen if Malawians will vote for Saulos Chilima, who has been vice president since 2014.
