‘Don’t Push me to the media’ Mutharika tells Malawians

251

Malawi President Peter Mutharika maintains he does not want to be dragged to the press to address the controversy surrounding his trip to United Nation (UN) meeting.

The development comes amid calls from different stakeholders for the government to clear reports on the number of delegates that Malawi had at the meeting.

The media has been verifying that Mutharika took along with him 115 delegates when only 6 were invited.

Mutharika hit hard by local media.

In demand, the stakeholders called for a clear explanation from the government through the president to address the media on the matter.

However Mutharika through his state press officer Gerard Viola said the President does not want to be pushed to media.

“The President does not wish to be pushed by Civil Society Organizations (CSO’s) or any person to address the media. A press briefing will be there whether in Lilongwe or Blantyre and a chance will be given to ask questions” said Viola.

Viola further trashed calls from CSO’s that Mutharika needs to refund the money that he used for the trip to UN meeting.

“Does the CSO’s not know hat there is UN general meeting each year?.To whom should the President refund? questioned Viola.

Media Institute of Southern Africa (MISA ) Malawi chapter chairperson Thom Khonje has described the development as worrisome following a promise by Mutharika to address the media before it is too late.

  26. Mr president seems he doesn’t think at all it same applies, if you don’t have food at your home yo have to tell your neighbour maybe he may end up helping you so for him to say we must not be publicising our poverty its like he dont know what he is talking about.He is a day dreamer

  27. Stolen Malawi, with her big headed leader. Every evil he does is justified by cross relating with evil of the same kind previous leaders made. However evil is never justified before God.

  28. Mbuzi Za mabungwe Inu;anagulitsa Ndege Uja Anali Ndani? You Were Pushing The Government To Sell Malawian Jet Without Thinking Of Tomorrow.Now,ur Blaming Boma Kut Likusakaza Cuma.Mutakhala Inu Mungapite Wa Pansi Ku Amereka? Mnzacidziwikire Kut Amalawi Ataya Cikhulupiliro Pa Inu

  29. Mr President, Seeming You Are Blind By Saying That You are Doing Everything To Develop This Country. How Can A Development Concious Leader Carry 100+ To Shop in US While The Locals Are In Dire Need Of Food? Utility Providers Are Currently Suffocating, Schools And Hospitals Have Lost Public Trust, How Can He Carelessly Say That He Is Doing Everything To Develolp Malawi? The Fact That We Are Idoh Does Not Mean That We Are Appreciating His Leadership. Sooner Or Later Malawians Will Standup For Their Long Violeted Rights.

  30. Amalawi ena pakholo panu ndithu. Bwanji mumaganiza ngati afinye?? Do u think the head of state can sit down with his ministers thinking to destroy the country?? Dont u knw that it is a world economic crisis?? Even if u gona be president what can u do?? Nothing! Indeed he is tryn. Enanu mukubowa kwambiri. Critisizn everything. Shupiti.

Ndikuwuzeni, Anthu Amene Amakuwuzani Kuti Muzitukwana Mtsogoleri Wanuwo Kuno Kutati Kwayamba Nkhondo, Sakakulandilani Kwawo. Malawi Lets Love Our Leader And Our Country. Kwathu Ndi kuno. Tidzafela Kuno. Don’t Be Cheated By Socalled Exparts.

  32. who told you to vote for him,mulupale ameneyutu mpaka 2015,limbikani kugwira ntchito basi nanunso mupange zanu,kulimbana ndi ndale ndikungotaya nthawi basi,bwanawa dzina adapanga kale,DPP WOYEE!!
