Peter Mutharika is not shaken

66

Despite incessant pressure from Civil Society Organizations ( CSO’s ) demanding President Peter Mutharika to step down, the Malawi leader is not even moved, Malawi24 has established.

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader continues to gain momentum from his party gurus who are up for gains.

President Mutharika’s ‘one and half term’ in office is very disappointing due to a series of economic flops and the general mal-governance of the country.

Among the several economic woes is the rising cost of living, the acute shortage of drugs in government hospitals, and increased black market foreign exchange premiums.

Mutharika’s resistance is also hit by further nominal depreciation of Kwacha with the short term he has been in the office.

Mutharika: Remains unmoved.

Added to these economic woes is the systematic violation of Journalists rights.

Mutharika’s displayed autocratic leadership style and his fiercely antagonistic relationship with the Media during a press briefing held at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe on his United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) trip.

The challenge facing Malawi’s president, is to find the right combination of policies and Advisers that will put the country back on a path for sustainable growth. One such approach is to systematically undo the several “policy follies and get lid of other party die hards.”

President Mutharika also continues to fail to downsize domestic public borrowing (a principal source of loss in foreign reserves), review current tax laws to alleviate its burden on the poor and progressively phase out exchange controls.

Also,at Press conference Mutharika, incited by his spokesperson, Gerald Violent, brandished local Media purportedly containing a list of people that comprised the Malawi delegation. He said the list had more delegates; not 115 as the American Embassy was quoted to have revealed.

However, Mutharika seems not to be shaken with the pressure adding spice to it is the 15th October, Civil Society Organisations (CSO’s) meeting, led by Centre for Human Rights (CHRR) Director Timothy Mtambo.

Mtambo tore Mutharika apart by trashing his anger while refusing to be silenced.

Mtambo further described the President’s loss of emotions as “un-presidential and worrisome”. Mtambo faulted Mutharika for being “too emotional and hostile” describing his outbursts and table banging as a flagship of an emerging autocrat.

“The president lacked decorum in his unguarded emotions as well as insensitive and irregular remarks towards his critics. The sole purpose of his flare was to threaten his critics to stop holding him to account. This is a flagship of an emerging autocrat and it is very worrisome after the country has long-achieved democracy.

“The public is interested to know why, amidst the country’s prevailing economic doldrums, the president took a costly volume of delegation to the Assembly,” Mtambo questioned.

On the other hand, the Church of Central African Presbyterian (CCAP) has warned that Mutharika may be become a dictator when he does not listen to his critics. Church and Society of the Livingstonia Synod of the Church of Central African Presbyterian said during a press conference that Mutharika “was inciting violence” in his reaction to reports that he took ‘a village’ of 115 delegates to the US for the UN General Assembly which resulted in government wasting over K2 billion of public funds.

The Church warned that the country is likely to experience another bloodshed like one that occurred in 2011 should the president continue with his authoritative rule.

“President Peter Mutharika adopted hostile approach that should not come from a president leading a democratic nation. He showed signs of being a dictator like his late brother, Bingu with the use of words like ‘nonsense’ and the banging of the table. He was inciting violence by fueling anger among members of the public that could lead to violent protests. We should not experience another July 20 bloodshed” warned the Church

Additionally, opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) through it’s publicist, Jessie Kabwila told Malawi’24 ‘ that there was no need for the opposition to be threatened and hinted that the Malawi leader has failed Malawians and such needs to quit from the post.

Spokesperson, Jessie Kabwila demanding her to apologize to the nation for what he termed as ‘lies’, before he also railed at the media.

Mutharika has also been accused of falling to start a probe into an alleged 577 billion Kwacha ‘Cashgate’ that occurred between 2009 and 2012, a development which analysts believe is meant to hide his late brother and President Bingu wa Mutharika.

  15. I first blame the election gurus.these people took bribes and sadly turned malawians to a wrong direction.secondly it is a waste of time again to be focusing on resignation.we can change the government later upon time.but for now lets improve our lives from whatever little we left with.lastly the president should remain quiet.knowing he is responsible for some messes.
