Mutharika insists Malawi is on track

Peter Mutharika

President Peter Mutharika has reiterated that Malawi is on track. Speaking when he met the media yesterday to brief them on the benefits that Malawi is expected to get from the India-Africa summit, Mutharika declared that things were fine in the country.

“This country is not chaotic, it is not collapsing, it is not failing,” said Mutharika to the members of the Press after accusing them of portraying a bad image of the country.

‘We are on track’

“The way some of you write, one would think nothing is working in Malawi,” said Mutharika.

The President also declared that Malawi is not broke. This is despite the country failing to hire doctors, provide food in hospitals and supply essential medicines in hospitals.

“Some of you say that I said that this country is broke, let me tell you that we are not broke and we can never be broke. This country has never been broke and has never ever defaulted on loan repayments,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika then urged journalists in the country to report positives about the country.

In his seemingly angry approach towards the media, Mutharika lost his cool on a Capital FM journalist for asking him a question that he felt had already been addressed by the minister of foreign affairs, George Chaponda who represented him in India.

The IMF declared Malawi off track in its recovery route and is reconsidering extending its credit facilities to Malawi. It is expected that the IMF will be reviewing Malawi’s economy in December. President Mutharika has challenged that the country will get a green light at the next review.

    1. Ngati ili nfundo imeneyo bwanji timasankha president m’dziko? That maunduna you are talking about are under President, so what so ever nduna is doing president knows about it, nduna ikaba president knows about it, for thoz nduna to stop stealing president must take actions about that,

  3. Peter z stupid mad man nd samadziwa kuti akupanga chani cz alibe mzelu shame on bakili muluzi he z the cost of dis.

  4. Bakili muluzi lead us to all this.i’ll never gonna stop blaming a chair.

  5. Uyu ndi Bwampini osaiwala paja mwaiye chomwe amadziwa ndikukwata nkhalambayo basi palibenso. Zoti amalawi tikuvutika alibe nazo ntchito iye musiyeni timuonetsa ameneyi…….. MDF

  6. Mr Kalisinje sorry for your comment. Actually I don’t blame you, but the one who mislead you to that curved road. Thank you.

  7. How do you expect someone who gets anything (food,house,water,electricity,even transport)free ofcharge to speak?For him there is nothing wrong Malawi is on track.He does not even know the price of 1kg packet of sugar.Shameeee.But dont wory God is watching and He will save us.

  8. Malawi sazatukuka kamba koti chilichonse timalowetsa ndale. Stop politicising things for example mmalo moti tipeze njira zothetsera mavuto muli busy kulimbana ndi president. SEPARATION OF POWER: WE have three powers on malawi which is: Executive. Law makers and judicialy. Meaning let the judicially do their job withoit any interfiarence from anybody. Law makers (MP) there job is to make laws and ask the executive difficult question on somethings which looks improper not begging for development. CONCILLORS their job is to make sure that there is development happening in his/her area. Make sure pple have water, clinics, schools and so on. MAYOR: on his own is a provision or regional president he suppose to have his own management in that management he must have person resiponsble for roads. Someone responsible for water and sanitations and someone for hearth. In so doing you will see that there will be any region which will luck development coz every district is maling money on its own and developing its own. How and where to get money? Good question, through the revenue that collected every day in the market and monthly or yearly those fund should be used to mantain whatever mantainance or development needed to be done in the district. Whatever money collected in lilongwe must be used to develop lilongwe. Monet collected in blantyre must be used to develop blantyre and so on. Not you want to maintain a toilet in lilongwe market you asking money from central government no. In so doing the may should be busy everytime looking for resourses to bring money not just sitting in the office enjoying coffee waiting for monthend to get a payslip. Another thing lets copy the way our friends doing in other countries, we have a public radio in malawi put a special program name it TICHITENJI OR TITANI. in that program give the community or malawians a chance to fone in and express their view out of 100 ple who can fone you find that 50-40 of them they have helpfull point. If we can implement this facts ineed am telling you malawis porvety will be history. Thank you all

    1. munthuyu ndiosamva akamaletsedwa kuchita zinthu.Amazungulira kumbali kukapanga we are voiceless .Akumachita zomwe akufuna. kodi who signz on behaf of we. ithnk ndiwe 1 of them 100% GREEDY

    3. everything here in malawi is politicized ,dere’z no wei malawi can move forward n come out of dis mess unless de whole system has changed diz guy has failed not necessarily becoz dey r not capable bt becoz dey jst wanted to enrich themselves ,luk at wat he seid, he has dat he has moe dan $8 million in his account zili zabhoza nde muziti ankafuna chani ,kufuna kuba basi aziti ndinali ndi dolla kale ine ,these guys are crooks ndimbava basi anthu osanva ..

  9. Somebody must be a crazy foool .his administration removes almost o subsidies eg unima etc.increases taxes only 4 deir only valid reasons and nw everything ts going upward ……w@ a crazy statement

  10. What do you mean when you say Malawi is not chaotic,it is not collapsing and is failing? Mr president are you mad? So its true if they say, its easy for a person to forget the colour of the car he is using, Peter you can’t see what challenges malawian pple are facing now coz you are on hot seat,your time will come when you will see that you were a useless, nonyntic and stupid leader, ask Bakili muluzi he will tell you.

  11. The professor is now justifying that he is indeed confused and incompetent just as other politicians are putting it. The other day he said the economy is bad after 3 days u say things are on track.
