…tells Chakwera he will never rule Malawi
Malawi President Peter Mutharika who has managed to steer the public debate away from his United Nations General Assembly spending has taken a swipe at the opposition Malawi Congress Party claiming they did nothing in the 30 years they were in power.
Speaking at the laying of a foundation stone for the Lilongwe bypass road in the Capital City, Mutharika challenged that his DPP government is visionary when it was compared to the opposition MCP.
“They were in power for 30 years and they did nothing,” said Mutharika. “Now, they are jealous because we are doing things that they failed to do.”
Mutharika went on to challenge that it was because of their failing to deliver in the 30 years that they were in power which would make them keep remaining in opposition
“These people who failed to deliver for 30 years will keep being in the opposition and they will never rule this country,” said Mutharika in his mockery of the extravagant Chakwera.
Lately, the MCP has been challenging that they win the 2014 elections because Mutharika is failing. Their calls had gathered momentum after it had been revealed that Mutharika had spent over K300 million in a trip to the United Nations.
However the situation has changed following revelations that the MCP leader in his capacity as leader of opposition is using a brand new car amounting to K80 million while his deputy who is the Speaker of Parliament purchased his at K90 million.
The road bypass which is expected to ease transport problems will be built with partial funding from the Africa Development Bank.
