Trouble brewing for lying Mutharika: JB sealed Chinese-funded projects in 2013

Peter Mutharika

Liar!

New evidence has surfaced suggesting that Malawi President Peter Mutharika was not being so honest when he announced that he has secured multi-million dollar deals with China.

A report that Malawi24 has seen reveals that all the projects that Mutharika announced yesterday were clinched with China in 2013 by his predecessor Joyce Banda, pinning Mr. Peter Mutharika as a shameless liar.

A report published by Nyasa Times on 4 June, 2013 shows that all the projects that the current administration touted were initiated by Banda, whom Mutharika at some point was accused of politically haunting.

The projects sealed by Joyce Banda which the lying Mutharika parroted as evidence of his dynamic leadership to develop Malawi include the 300 Megawatt Kam’mwamba Coal Fired Power Plant, rehabilitation of Chileka Airport and the E-national identification project.

  3. I prophesy, Malawians will one day become pregnant and delivered from the spirit of hatred and will focus on nation building. Yes, the nation will move forward and not waste their valuable time reading hate mesgs.

  4. Yes, because we don’t want projects stall because of change of parties. To us its not somebody’s name who stroke the deal but its our government!

  5. Mkazi ndakhala naye two years lelo osaudumphA olo kusanza kamodzi,lero a namwino akuti mgodumwa NDE mukuti wamgwetsa mdothi ndimamuna yemwe anamzimbula chifukwa cha ungomwa uja?ah Ah chadza ndiyani

  6. Malawi24, It is no time for politics now. It is no time for campaign. The campaign ended 48 hours before election date last year, 2014. You know very well Madam Banda was already voted out and now the man in chardge is Peter Mutharika. Let us respect him. He is the one on driver’s seat. Malawi is moving forward. We shall not wait for you while you cry, weep, weeping, weeping over spilt milk. Let us join hands as Malawians to develop our country. Keep remembering that there was Kamuzu, Muluzi, Bingu and JB. All these guys had their time. That time is gone. They did what they did to serve Malawi. The ball now is in the hands of Mutharika. Give him time. No Jelousies, kaduka, nkhwidzi, msulizo, njiru. That will never, never help Malawi. Let us join hands for the moment and help people of Malawi positively. Campaign period will be announced by electral commission, once more in 2019. You will vote for a person of your choice. That is what I understand by democracy.

    • This malawi24 is useless they have nothing to write, Joyce Banda didn’t value China in her leadership even Chinese premier failed to visit Malawi when he came to Africa but he manage to visit our neighbouring countries

  8. who cares..?..if at the end Malawians will b whistling in peace then bodza laMutharika lidzapulumutsa..ngati bodza linayamba kupulumutsa munthu that is…

  9. Chomwe Mmalawi aliyense amadziwa ndichoti: DPP ndi chipani cha chitukuko, mukuona ngati a Malawi mungawapusitse pakadali pano. Mmalawi anasukusula pakadali pano,

  13. Kodi chimavuta ndichani kunena kuti zimene ndi kupanga ndikupitiliza zimene anasiya jb,Koma umamva akuthula za dpp yakale ija ine ndimadabwa kwambiri.Koma nthawi zina ndibwino kuyamika zabwino zimene wina anapanga ,ndizosiilana izi inuso tizakuyamikani mkazapuma chonchi munthu umatenga madalitso,mavuto ati mbwee awa kwina amabwela chifukwa chasakuyamika za anzawo nde mlungu Si Jemus amakonda aliyense paja.

    • nkhani ndi yoti masten anapepha thandizo nthawi imeneyo koma sanawapase APM wapasidwano naye atapepha ndiye tinene kuti mwini ndi uti, mbali yanga ndikuwona kuti APM wapasidwa m’malinga ndi pempho lake

  14. I think penapake media people, you have to be objective. JB officiated the opening of the Chirumba, Karonga Barracks houses for the Army. Those houses were built by the DPP government under President Bingu, and yet whilst JB was claiming glory for them inu you never said anything. Anayima pamenepo talking about ho she could’nt sleep and how she wanted so much for them, koma chipanda Phoya kunena in his speech that those homes were Bingu’s initiative, bwenzi pano zonse tikuti amai. Ine i dont do politics, but i think y’all need to get serious with your reporting. Nanunso mwayamba za mijedu

  15. Am still not forgoten when Bingu said no to TAIWAN projects n made ties with China, I am not a Chinese fanatic though as I know they are popuplated home and are making Africa an altenative in the name of Development but a spade cannot be a spoon, lets call a spade what it is Politics is yes a dirty game but when it is played by dirty people my political thats why there are a few that may do good not önly good lies

  16. what is wrong here, they are the projects for the nation, he went there to finalise the deal, the first one was a proposal

  17. MORE FIRE, PEOPLE MUNTHALIKA HAS NOT DONE ANYTHING SINCE TAKING OVER THE LEADERSHIP, ALL HE IS DOING IS TAKING OVER DEVELOPMENTS THAT OTHER LEADERS DID TO BE HIS. HE HAS NOTHING TO OFFER THIS COUNTRY APART FROM LYING AND DOING UCHIGAWENGA. GOD WILL JUDGE HIM ACCODINGLY FOR LIGING.

  18. 1.Electoral malpractice reared its ugly head in Malawi as more votes cast than number of people registered.
    2.But election officials were at a loss when they discovered there were more votes cast than the number of people officially registered. thats why Mbendera cried because the deal went outside the agreed margin of rigging.

    I was hired to set DPP tally centre but I was instructed beyond my control till now none has
    shown interest to force government to inquire or audit the poll results
    Up to now, I have not seen the report yet, if I had, I would be in a better position to comment on the report and tell Malawians how it happened….

  19. I would like the author to tell us why was the announcement for clinching those deals were not made when JB had just done it in 2013 as you claim

  20. Research is better than just talkn out of nonsense, every media can b criticized in its own way but there will alwayz be a sense of truth in the story they present to the public…..those of u who say Malawi 24 r foolish writn this story….why cant you surf the web go to Nyasatimes on the said date and read that article period after that thats when you can say Malawi 24 is full of shit.

  21. Politics in malawi is based on lies,enafe zimenezo tazolowela coz malawians timakondwa wen ppo are teln us lies,zoona sitizikonda.now on tht china deal,whos fooling who?

  22. He is just trying to say that we should tell whatever we want to communicate honestly.APM would have lost nothing disclosing the projects and source of funding for the projects in honesty because that is what we want.Moreover,APM is just there to impliment the national policy regardless of who secured it or when or what happened to it.So bravo mr reporter for reminding the public about the principle of honesty.

  23. Bingu is de 1 who went dea not jb,wat iremembr was jb went to korea to seek job oppotunity for malwians kkkkkkkiiiii,and idont know if my fell had gone,so if say de deal wat du u mean ? U happy wen u see us fighting poor jornalist,wy cant u wring za kumaliseche kwako,fuck u.

  24. What kind of trouble is brewing there? No sitting President has accomplished ones projects!! Sunapite ku school, ndiwe mbuli. Wat kind of journalism is that? Unaphunzira ku ndende?

  25. Kuno ndikumalawi, aliyense amaona kuti iye ndiye olungama, choipa ndichimene chimapita patali chabwino ayi. amthalika anaipitsa mbili ya abanda ndi cashgate kusiya zabwino zimene abanda anachita. amazitama kuti iwo ndianthu koma mbuzi yeniyeni. siizi zayamba kuulika? amalawi ndife zitsilu.

  26. Why us Malawians love always to pull others even they do something good?We ought to be shame by our silly remarks at times.So you are trying to say Peter can never do anything good for this country.Seems life our thinking capacity is always full of jealousy and envy.I guess its high time we ought to live like normal people.

  27. i believe this reporter is a foreigner who need to be deported. Ationongera dziko. Sadziwa kuti this is a government where it is a system when one starts a project it continues till the end though different governments pass with time. Umbulitu nkusadziwa.

  28. Ndiye zili ndi ntchito yanji kwa ife? Iweyo ndikusazindikira kwakoko ndiye ukuwona vuto, ozindikira tikuziwa kuti ntchito za Boma amapasilana ndi kupitiliza koma umbuli wa inu ophunzira utolankhani mumafuna kunyoza kutukwana pa zinthu zomwe simuzimvetsa chifukwa cha kuchepa kwa xool. Go back to std 8

  29. Billy Kaundas song,Ndani wamanga apa msewu !Ndine ndine pano,ndani wayipisila apa?Nonse ziiiiii osayankha,anakhala bwanji muntha sayamika,bravo APM zimaterezimater bwezi zikoma.

  30. JB means just bullshit,we dnt care about sealing or what so ever we need things happening shame on jb 4 not bringing da funds but the seal

  31. 24kkkkk propaganda,,,are you pp kkkkkk guess what you will never vote for a party which will rule this country,.,,so you wanted the president to remain silent on this good news….to hell

  32. mxi bwanj jb yo amaendesa project ya stadium?pomwe anasaina ndi late bingu,ma project ama power station anasayina oz bingu too inali yama phase awiri,nde ukut chan ka mtolankhan kopanda nzeru ngat iwe,akumakutumani eti?shupiti zako

  33. Yes mr jono we dont care who secure the deal what matters is chithandizo chidike kwa oyenera basi.amayiwo amkagwila ntchito mmalo mwa boma the same as peter.u dont know by now that’ ntchito ya mboma is contnuety?please be proffessonal

  34. Bullshit, JB my foot, we all know what JB was capable of when she was an interim presdent. She had no time to sign any deal with china. She was very busy stealing our money. Ndipo zikanakhala zoona bwenzi atalengeza kale ndi pakamwa pake paja.

  35. Ngati wankulu akuyambitsa bodza nde ana nkuwulula zadziweni kuti munthu yo ngwabodza nthawi zonse… Osaapanga silence atolankhani…cholinga pamawa muzizati project yi tiipatsa dzina loti petulo ngati anayambitsa ndi iyeyo….chilungamo chisamakuwaweni abale anga

  36. The question remains why did China fail to honor her with the said projects. Are you sure China could really wait until today? Remember she is the same person who went to Karonga and said she is the one who negotiated for that project in China the Karonga-Chitipa. Politics at its best, shame!

  37. when someone says it should be Joyce Banda Stadium,people say it was Bingu’s idea and he negotiated for this despite JB having having seen it to be built. Now what is wrong pointing out that JB negotiated for these projects in June 2-7,2013,when she visited China and there are records to that effect? All what APM has done is re-announce the same which had been done at press briefing through a communique read to reporters on her return?

    • Steve,uli ndi vuto ndipo usandipake nalo ineyo. Siutsata zinthu koma kuyenda uchimbulimbuli. Zinthu izi zili muma record. Pitani ku MBC kapena welengani Nyasatimes yamatsiku 4- 7 June2013. Mika Amos, ndakukonda pobweletsa mfundo imeneyi kuti uphunzilirepo mbali yina ya u President. Zambiri zimene mumamva kuti a pulezidenti apanga chakuti si iwo apanga koma akatswiri a nchito zimenezo. Ndichifukwa amapita ndi akulu akulu osiyana siyana amene amadziwa za zinchitutozo. Mwachitsanzo, ngati pulezidenti akupita dziko lodziwa kwambiri za ulimu,kuno ku Malawi akatswiri athu mu unduna wa zamalimidwe amawona zofooka zathu ndipo zkazipeza,amazitumiza kwa pulezidenti ndi amene amanena kuti chabwino. Akatswiri aja amapita kukambirana ndi akatswiri anzawo kudzikolo ndikufotokoza chifukwa chiyani Malawi akufuna kuthandizidwa munjira zoterezo. Nawo akuja amakawuza pulezidenti wawo zomwe Malawi ikufuna nagwilizana zonse. Ndichifukwa chache zikalakwika pulezidenti amasambamo mumanja. Tawona zakusankha kwa bungwe lina momuno.

Azitsogoleritu amafuna zabwino zokha zoyipa amazithawa. Mwamvapo kambirimbiri. Mau anga otsiliza kwa a Stevie,tamadzukani!

    • Stevie Patrick and Mika Amos,please read a posting in today’s Nyasatimes. The President has cancelled his trip to India and Hon Chaponda will lead a 10 man delegation of OFFICIALS. It is these officials who are experts in various field to be discussed there who would have not been mentioned but the president if there will be any negotiations in anything. The president would have just signed and make news on MBC.

  38. Kodi Chitukuko Chimenechi Chipindulira Joyce Banda Kapena Peter Mutharika?Mesa Chipindulira A Malawi.Malawians R Looking For Development Osati Zausilu Zanu Mukulemba Apazi.Ndalamazo Sizinabwere Mu Nthawi Yake Joyce Bandayo Bwanji?Anatani Kuziitanitsa Asanachoke.Zopepera Basi.

  39. I wonder what kind of humans are u, people osafuna mtendere, u happy when people are fighting, ine i strongly believe theyr foreigners/refugees within malawi24 and their sore puporse is to bring our country because honestly whether deals were sealed by kamuzu or chakwela to us that doesnt count, the most important thing is to see those projects changing the lives of poor malawians#gobacktoyourcountriesyourefugees

  40. Ndiye vuto ndichani wina wasigner wina walandira kaya wina watani atolankhani ndinu odanisa kwambiri chifukwa chake kadzikoka sikatukuka kanachula anthu omangopanga matukutuku pachilinchonse

    • The problem is we make alot of noise when things are attributed to other people. Example. The new Lilongwe stadium people made alot of noise that it should be named Bingu or JB. Then we started going historical as to who started or negotiated for it. This is why people was to put it straight that JB negotiated this latest episode.

    • mr adrian bern don’t accuse the journalists if you don’t mind why the president is misreading us that he has secured a deal in stead of saying the Truth. dont you know that news were all over that the chines govt will build a multmillion dollar electricity project dont just be one sided look into things before showing your stupit coments

    • Mr Adrian you must a fool. Socrates was killed because he was making claims many people deemed as misleading in which case the first guy to doubt Socrates would have got likes like you just did but the truth is that they ‘the people’ were in fact wrong! Your comment is full of hate towards the Journalist who has just presented the news as it is!! People like you are destroying Malawi so much mpaka 50 years of Independence koma you cant point out any major achievement! We are still fighting the same hunger Bakili was fighting!

    • With the noise the PP borrowed government was making just zingwe za ng’ombe ndiye izi sanakatisowetsa mntendere just appreciate that APM is making strides what namaloko did was to steel our money through cashgate I think opposition is just their to talk wayawaya azungu akuti anakangofika kuti ndinali ku China azungu andiuza kuti andipatsa 1 trillion kkkk

    • Jb is a useless bitch kuti muone bwinobwino akuti anaikw miyala ya maziko a chitukuko yopitilira 200.nde ndikumati zonsezo amati akapangila kuti hahaha, makape a JB.

  42. Palibe chovuta chachikulu nkuyangana kuti chitukuko chipindulila ndani. This is poor reporter ndinkona anthu amati mumakolozela ziwawa mmalo momanga malawi. Ma journalist apamalawi andangosanduka ma poltcn 4 gate there profson wrk.

  44. Hey u crazie mad stoobled people, have you ever thought of writting a positive story on your page?

    • Palibe chanzeru apa ena mwamaproject womwe apasidwa ndalama eg community colleges ndi minfestal a dpp so how can someone tells us kuti ndi jb. Mwina aliyense akudziwa kuti nthawi ya jb ubale waife ndi china wunasidwa zedi.

  45. It doesnt matter who clinched the deal as long its for the benefit of Malawians.Lets hope they wont cashgate it as Israelmore Ayivor said “The bedrock of corruption is the attitude of selfishness.we pray hard these politicians should think of everyone else not themselves.

    • Ati report in Nyasatimes. Kuthandauza kuti analengeza. Vuto lathu ndikuyiwala. Apa pasavute. Aimbileni aku Chinese Embassy ku Information Section. Akudziwitsani. Apo ai funsani ku Foreign Ministry yathu ku Capital Hill atulutse chikalata(communique) chimene chinatuluka atangobwera JB kuchoka ku China mu June 2013 kuti chinati chiyani
