Malawians shun uninspiring Mutharika, turn to Tanzania’s Magufuli

333

Newly elected Tanzanian President John Magufuli has become a social media sensational after his approach to work in the neighbouring country.

According to an observation by Malawi24, a section of Malawians on social media have compiled a list of Magufuli’s actions which are proving that he has an unusual approach to business.

Malawians turn to Magufuli

While others have come out clearly that Malawi leader Peter Mutharika who rose to power challenging that he will change the way things are run in the country should borrow a leaf from Magufuli, others have just posted the good works that Magufuli is doing and leaving judgment in the hands of Malawians.

“I hope our President can borrow a leaf,” wrote a social commentator after it was announced that the Tanzanian leader has cancelled the country 54th independence anniversary celebrations. He has ordered that the money is used for other purposes.

According to reports, this is not the first time that Magufuli has suspended meaningless issues for more serious issues.

“He trimmed the number of people going to the Commonwealth summit, he fired the Executive Director of the national hospital after he found patients sleeping on the floor, he told all government officials that there is no flying first class on official trips, he told ministers that there is no need to fly outside anyhow, he travelled by car from Dar to Dodoma for Parliament, he has trimmed the Presidential convoy,” goes a paraphrase of his achievements currently being circulated on social media.

Magufuli’s austerity measures appear to be contrary to Mutharika’s government which has been accused of overspending at a time when the country is going through tough times.

Mutharika’s government has gone on a lip service of championing reforms which are only targeting the poor while him and his cronies live in opulence. At the same time, efficiency is at the lowest with serious power shortages and lack of medicine in hospitals.

Magufuli becomes the second African President to have made Malawians wish they could import a leader. Uhuru Kenyatta was once a darling of most Malawians owing to his social media appearance.

  4. This is good and encouraging not just going for Development rallies so that allowances are pocketed.
    This is not like ‘zinazi tikuwonazi’ having its beginning at the state house and will end there (BEAM), all to pocket more money in their pockets.

  5. Hope magufuli is de true son of Tanzania unlike to our mr ibu he is not true son of ou nation dat’s why he doesn’t care about our belove land hope God will send someone lyk magufuli

  6. While in Malawi the president hosts expensive dinners and banquets in the name of BEAM Trust while garbage still lies in the streets of the Capital. Right now he’s cryng to be bought a jet by taxpayers monet, yet he has boasted of him being very rich. What a shame

    • Its true but the difference is this president is reducing public holiday that can cost spending of public fund instead divert it into cleaning of the country

    • the difference is that ‘Magufuli’ didn’t have a golden shovel nor golden wheelbarrow, unlike our incumbent. everything is a show of power and excellence with Malawi!

    • Kkkkkk #kwizombe when are we going to stop critiszng our leaders for simple things that matters less to National develpment? Coz uyu alibe shovel so dats the difference? They all had 1 idea of keepng the streets clean

    • #my point isnt whether one has a shovel or not but the simple fact that one decides to make cleaning the street extravagant says a lot about where their mentality lies when it comes to how they should conduct themselves as ‘public servants’. take for instance the incumbents response to the floods, these guys had the odacity to include a red carpet and shed for the president and co. yet other leaders elsewhere are in gumboots and overalls visiting flood victims.. my point being detach this taste for exspensive show boating..

  21. He’s trying 2 tanzanians kkkkkkkkkk lol koma m’malawian sazatheka,kungotelo basi ndiye kuti ndiwabwino?kkkkkkk he can do dat &@de same tym a cash gater also its possible ,remember hw JB was foooling u pple,dont b foolz in the world,work together &achieve more .

  22. Akamuna bambo zoona mudziko lake mtengo wa fertilizer mpakana K6,000 kaya wolemera kaya wosawuka athe kugula.Siizi zilikuno wolemera ndi amene akuyamba kuthawa mtengo wa bag ndiye kulibwanji ndi wawuwisi

    • But yet he cant do that,,he only thinks hez too smart to travel by jet with 100 plus number of iddle people while poor Malawians are dying in hospital-Foolish!

  23. Hahaha sizingatheke kuno zimenezi, President wanthu ndi wophunzira kwambiri Professor sangapange zimenezi, kutola zinyalala? masewera eti. timasiila azimayi zimezi adzipanga. ntchito ya Getrude imeneyi kkkkkk

  24. Nothing extraordinary abt wat he did.Whre r d refuse trucks and crew?kkkkkk African politics kkk after ths he becomes d life president cz pple he once picked up litter and thru it in d bin heee?

  25. Our President here in Malawi is just a Liability..He has no vision at all..He can not learn from his newest Tanzanian counterpart #MAGUFULI#..Its more like we dont have a President in Malawi now.

  26. #magufuli z a leader dat’s y h z alwez settng up gud examples, while APM is a ruler, dat’s de dfernce. mtundu wa muthalika kukhala chovala ndkananyka mu acid nd2

  27. he is good to u but to my side i love my president peter muthakika, no matter what i wil not let him down. l love u my president peter mmmmmmewwwwwaaaaa

    • a man who always feels like he’s in abroad who don’t even care about the poor Malawians and the shortage of drugs in Hospitals,very stupid indeed!

    • nich its not like that dude that’s y in govt there have policies to run all affairs ngati iwe watengera ndale zukuvuta apa we take issues as development is concerned

    • hahaha iwenso mufuna azikupasa zaulere kuzolowera zolandira basi ma ARV ulandire aulere chakudyanso zaulesi basi osangopita ku tanzania konko bwanji?

    • #pasadi don’t b stupite,,, ukamati zaulele nde kuti chani? U think money is coming from your stupite president (Peter)? its our money,,, so stop talking chite like that

    • Kaya kukhala kuzolowera zolandira or not, but the fact is that Tanzania’s president is far more better than ours. He is there to help Tanzanians while ours is there to help himself with the taxpayers money

    • hahaha agalu inu nsipu wobiriwira umaoneka ukakhala patali tauyandikire uone mmene umakudzukira chimodzimodzinso amaiko ena amakamba zomuyamikira muthalika pomwe inu aeni nwakenu mukumunyodza ngati mukupangiramu

  28. He has no human heart; he has no passion…He boasts of having immeasurable wealth yet he plunders public resources. If he had any, he would have brought his wealth and invest here. And he would not have acquired an old MHC house at rock bottom price instead of building a modern house…

  29. Anganya awa ndakana kamuzu techekuja kwaweni wazazuwanji Magufuli kuti ngwamampha.Kumbi kweni ku Tz kulivi asuzika. Zeru wija asani mulindiza Peter Mtalika walemba pa water .

  30. If presidents were imported like equipments, Malawi would have imported Tanzanian Leader to do some patching in the govrnment these locals have failed

  31. Actually we are not independent because white people are still controlling economy. And Malawians because we cant live without begging

  32. Dont be kidding with African leaders amayamba ngati angel but akakhazikika muwaona amasitha zochita so to my side this is not new. Magufulu he just want to give confidence people of his coutry kuti alamula bwino but wait and see mmmh, this is crocodiles.

  33. I don’t see any issue to applause for!would that make sense?canceling anation day of there nation thinking he is saving?hahaha african presidents when they are new in the ruling arena owez wish to prove they are thhe best than there predecessor but they forget one thing readership is of being visionary sharp if not then doom!go to tz if malawi is not conforming!

  34. But how can you respect ur leader while he is a shame publically?? All in all,,, Malawian leaders are full of greedness. Dzianthu dzikuludzikulu,atinso dzophunzira koma nzeru(wisdom) zilibe… Vuto ndi kukhala ndi atsogoleri omwe sadziwa kuopa komanso kukonda Mulungu ndi nzeru zawo zonse ndi mphamvu zawo zonse..

  35. Out of 17million Malawians, muntharika was elected by one person because the other one was crying to show that he has sold the country to …………….. while the other respect figure twisted the laws of the land for him to have bread and batter, as Malawians on the other side were crying due to divetion of their will by this figure who had no mercy.

  36. I wil support peter as amalwi leader,zikakhala za ku Tanzania nawonso they have their own problem,if u find it posble to go dis is de tim b4 it is 2late,de constitution wil protect u,ife tilikonkuno our motherland.

  37. thats a good example of a president who makes sacrifices for the good of his country something that our president peter is failing to show. Imagine the U.S which is the leading economy in the world has only one house for a president to reside while malawi one of the poorest in economy has several houses for the president to reside and almost 5 billion kwacha is spent only on thoze houses. If peter can make a sacrifice to use only one house almost 4.5 billion can be saved which can be channeled into the health sector which is facing alot of challenges lately. Kwathu kunotu mavutotu timawapanga tokha dala unlike kwa anzathu komwe they solve the problems

    • Go and search on the google, it will tell u that the U.S is on number one with its GDP of 17 trillion dollars seconded by china then Japan. on number 6 is Britain with GDP of 2.6 trillion. Make a research braz. i cannot post something i dont have info.

  38. Ubwino wake #ATUMBUKA ku Tanzania ndi kwanunso muyende bwino…….mutisiyire Kwathu kuno ku Malawi…ife mavuto anatiyanja kichokera nthawi ya #Kamuzu, #Muluzi, #Bingu #Abiti pano #Pitala….mbwenu.

  39. Nzeru zapelewera apa if i like magufuli what Malawi will gain? if i disgrace my fellow Malawian for a foreigner what will i gain? Its better seek plant &weed within Malawi than to admire a neighbours garden who has just planted linda madzi adutse

  40. Mr ibu salabada zamavuto anthu koma zake zokha.paka kuonetsa mtembo wabraz chifukwa chofuna mpando, kumusintha dzina at daniel phiri. ndye angawelenge zaife

  41. Amaneyu akamaliza term yake ku Tz azatitsogolerenso ku Nyasa kuno, mwina tingazaone kusintha. Vampire alipoyu after five years azaona kolowera we cant continue with him.

  42. Mbuzi Ya Ntola Nkhani, Za Ku Tanzania Kumafaniza Ndi Malawi. Machende Ako!! Iwe Mwana Woipa Eti? Nthawi Zonse Basi Kumangokamba Za Mutharika, Umafuna Azikuuza Kuti Iyayi Ma Plan Anga Ndi Otere? Anthu Ambiri Sakuuza Ma Plan Awo Ndipo Sumawafunsa Bwanji?, What Can That Do With Mutharika? Shupiti!! Kikikkk( Mulli Style).

  43. Thats very bad. What’s wrong with Malawians. We need to love our own President and our own country. Our President currently, is Prof. Arthur Peter Mutharika. Lets love him by giving him necessary support.

  44. Enanu ur coming from poor back ground family,komaso there is rich families in dis country did u ask ur parent wat happened ur family to b poor,so plz u must think b4 u open ur mouth.

    • you can be rich materially,but your friends are rich intellectually.Thats why they are able to express themselves.Remember the pen is mightier than the sword.

    • iwe mmene ukuonekeramo unabadwira kwauphawi zed. go to hell wit ur foolish comment an we will mit dea. ukuona ngat ndimakolo ose ovutika anachita kupangira dala? mind da way u open ur mouth dude

  45. PROBLEM OF YOU THE WRITERS YOU FAIL TO PROMOTE YOUR OWN COUNTRY YOU SALE OTHERS ENVY AND JEROUS FERMENTED IN YOUR BRAINS, HIPOCRITES
    YOU DONT RESPECT YOUR DIGNITY YOU ALWAYS HAVE EGOCENTRICISM LIFE SYLE
    YOU NEVER DREAM ANYTHING GOOD FOR YOUR COUNTRY
    EVEN IF MALAWI ENCOUNTERS CALAMITIES YOU TWIST YOUR SHOULDERS AND NEGLECT THE FLOODS, THE EVIL WINDS OF DIFFERENT NAMES
    CORRUPTED AND EVIL MINDED AUTHORS WHO PLANT COOKED BEANS AND RIP NOTHING
    LOTS ARE HAPPENING THAT TAKE AWAY OUR RESOURCES IN THE NAME OF SAMPLES UNDERGROUND BUT YOU ARE QUIET YOU ONLY SEE ONE PERSON COZ OF BLOODY MONEY YOU WILL NEVER SUCCEEED TILL YOU STOP BETRAYING YOUR COUNTRY.

  46. This is typical of Malawians, we are easily swayed by things even though we have little information about the real issues on the ground.

    When Uhuru Kenyatta rose to power, many Malawians were bdy decorating their walls with Uhuru’s shares from facebook, yet back in Kenya, people are frustrated with Uhuru’s pilicies.

    Now its the Tanzanian president…Ask Tanzanians about their president and they will tell you the real truth about him, not some Malaiwan who is located over 1000km from Dar.

  47. Magufuli appears to be naturally born as a leader with blessings from the creator. Ours is man made with blessings perhaps from the devil. Doesn’t care if a villager suffers. He wants his status to be respected and be seen to be above all living Malawians. We have a problem.

  48. Do you know the meaning of shunning as compared to advice or comparison? Your English, reporters of this page seems very shallow, misleading!!!! mukapange journalism
