A section of Malawians have unleashed venom on Malawi24 following reports that President Peter Mutharika has chartered a private jet on his trip to Malta for the Commonwealth Conference.
After Malawi24 revealed that Mutharika, despite outrage that followed his extravagant spending at the UN where he had chartered a private jet, some Malawians took time to dress down this publication for making the revelation.
“Did you want the President to take a bus, what is wrong with you Malawi24?” asked Twambirire Nyirongo in reacting to the post.
“Sometimes people think that if the President uses a taxi or minibus to go abroad then the economic challenges will change overnight. It doesn’t work just like that,” wrote Saulosi Kachitsa.
Others justified the decision to charter the jet claiming it was because the government of Joyce Banda sold the Presidential jet.
“When you were selling the private jet did you think the President will be travelling using a wheelbarrow or he has wings that he can use for flying, stop abusing our intelligence Malawians,” wrote Ruth Chidule.
Meanwhile others have said Mutharika is still extravagant despite saying that he is doing reforms to save the country.
