Mutharika dresses down ‘talkative’ Joyce Banda

166

They will never stop to exchange venom in what they say and if this is anything to go by, then Malawi President Peter Mutharika and ex leader Joyce Banda will keep not seeing each other eye to eye.

Mutharika has taken time out of his arduous schedule at the Commonwealth Heads of Governments Meeting in Malta to blast former President Joyce Banda saying her continued stay in foreign countries has nothing to do with victimization or retirement benefits.

Peter Mutharika

Mutharika: Joyce Banda in insincere.

Last month, the former president shocked her followers when she revealed that her long anticipated return will be delayed due to serious security concerns following Malawi Government’s delay in providing her a secure and decent house.

She was scheduled to arrive in Malawi on Tuesday, November 2, 2015 through Chileka Airport in Blantyre.

Banda who left Malawi after losing the 2014 Tripartite General Elections has twice hinted that Mutharika is her greatest political enemy and that he is after her life.

But in a dramatic response, the Malawi leader has advised the former head of state to come back so that she can assist in the identification of a house of her choice.

In a post on his official Facebook page, the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) leader said claims made by Banda are insincere and aims at denting his image toward donors.

“I wish to inform the public that numerous claims purportedly made by the former President Dr Joyce Banda that she is failing to return to Malawi because she is being denied retirement benefits, including accommodation and security, are insincere.”

“Government has duly provided to Banda the requirements of a retired President as stipulated by the President’s (Salaries and Benefits) Act,” reads part of the post.

Banda;Complained of ill treatment.

On Banda’s gratuity, Mutharika said the former president has already received a tax free lump sum amounting to K30 million comprising MK12 million and MK18 million as gratuity in her capacity as former vice president and former president, respectively.

However, Mutharika admitted that the former president is yet to start receiving her monthly pension which he says is currently being processed by the Director of Pensions at the Accountant General’s office.

According to Mutharika, Banda was also offered several houses to choose from in some affluent neighborhoods of the capital city but she rejected most of them.

Mutharika also said Banda has been provided with seven police officers in accordance with the President’s (Salaries and Benefits) Act.

Banda has consistently said she is entitled to a salary, a house in a safe and secure place, and personal security detail but claimed that all of these have not been provided since she left office in May 2014.

She earlier indicated that despite government’s refusal to her claims, she has continuously requested the government to respect and uphold the rule of law by providing her the benefits.

  11. Which donor can be convinced by what you have said. These are just personal issues. Talk like the live president of Malawi. We need maize, and not Banda!

  12. Ukakhala pa mpando nkumazunza anzako zimazavuta ukatula mpandowo. Amaiyu analibe chifundo mpang’ono pomwe pom’manga nzakeyu. Lero ali nje-nje-nje kuopa kuti akalawako ku udzudzu ukulu-ukulu uja. Ayi bwerani kaya kunotu nkunja.

  13. We have to be objective on these things. Why would a person run away from her own country and talk a lot out there? It’s not to do with a house guys. Muluzi has been here in his own house. Joyce had a house and his husband is in a house. Why would she make all excuses for simple issues. Please let her come and face his critics and prove her innocence on everything that happened in her reign.

    • Ted Chiyembekeza i like your so much.Bakiri Muluzi stole money but did not run away,he uses the money within malawi.But look at that bitch,she stole billions from the government and run away,and she keeps on making noise there.If she did not do wrong why is she not coming back?.Fucken shit Joice Banda.

  14. THE MOST HIGH GOD WILL SORT OUT VERY SOON, when we are living in this life we should not limit our focus to power of man.We should know that Malawi’s population is approximately 17 million people. Our God will NOT allow the people of Malawi to continue to suffer,they have suffered for long time.Malawi is under the grace of God,within short time we are going to see the good things The Lord has prepared for His people in Malawi.

  19. i wonder how much security should be accorded to Jb?? why cant she come and claim for that?? DR Bakili Muluzi, Justin Malewezi and Khumbo Kachali are enjoying the same benefits of government security. DR JOYCE BANDA is indeed talkative to dent the image of APM. What i observe now is that she is afraid of her wrong doings while ruling this country. She was a big mafia in hustling tax payers money. abwere kuno kumudzi will claim for her benefits and will also be arrested to answer her related charges. if guilty will go maula prison college. “nobody is above the law”

  20. Security details Banda is talking about is different from what you think…Joice want to be secure from cashgate case and its following prosecution

  21. Malawi, this is our 4t…………. Bingu’s death, made us to shed tears of joy, chanting , singing… appreciating God that ooh no!!!!! Long at last Malawi is free again

  29. I humbly agree with our president,what I know for sure is that Joyce Banda is trying to paint black APM,if I was her JB…i would come back and see I will be welcomed or not than keep on seeking refuge in foreign countries….I now agree with my grandfather who once said ‘anthu ena sacita manyazi ndikupempha’ ndaonera JB

  30. I was ARRESTED just because i dressed like a DPP supporter during her leadership and i saw Mutharika kuvutika kupita ku court just bcoz of her so today muziti she deserve to have security.
