Malawi kwacha rated world’s worst performing currency

399

A report by international financial experts reveals that the Malawi Kwacha has lost about 35% of its value under the leadership of President Peter Mutharika, pinning it one of the worst currencies in Africa.

Malawi Kwacha on a noisedive

Kwacha ‘competing’ for the bottom position

The report, published by US Financial aggregator, Bloomberg, shows that Malawi kwacha is just 2 places from the bottom of the Continent’s worst currencies hit by inflation. Slightly trailing the Kwacha is the Angolan currency. The Kwacha’s namesake in Zambia is anchoring the log.

Since his election in May 2014, Mutharika has presided over one of the worst rising inflation in Malawi, a development the report shows as one factors that has lead to “a slump in investor confidence”.

Value of Malawi Kwacha dropped to its record lowest point this month sending a shockwave of price increases on goods and commodities. Bloomberg also reports that Africa’s biggest economies such as South Africa, Ghana and Nigeria are also dancing to the same tune as that of Kwacha.

But unlike the three countries which are putting in place practical measures to counter rising inflation risks and deteriorating growth, Malawi’s Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe announced that only the miracle hand of God could save the Kwacha from its nosedive.

  26. Peter is de best president so far, since Malawi got independent there was no any president who ruled Malawi 4 two years without any donor support. He is managing only zat Malawi as a nation is facing with so many challenges lik floods, cashgate, shortage of rain and many of them. Malawians we need 2 b patience if we work hard Malawi will not be de same.

  28. Guys, to say the truth here, Peter does not have a clear vision. He will be cloacking two yrs in office this coming May but nothing has happened to our economy. Njala ndiyosayamba. High cost of living and no salary increment. Underfunding in most govt department. Lack of infrastructure. The list is endless yet he vowed during the campaign to get things right once in office yet he has alot of solutions at his disposal. First he could live in one house and save billions of kwacha, he could utilize our minerals and intesfy irrigation farming from the lakes and rivers we have just to mention afew but lack of vision and dyera is what making him stay idle.

    • We getting worse and worse my man, chuma cha Malawi ndicha anthu a m’boma thats why when Peter took over, the first thing he did is to increase the allowance of the Mp’s ,Ministers and ofcourse himself! zachisoni. Vuto laku Malawi ndiloti we only interested with kuti president ndiwakwathu, then we support them in every wrong they do.

  62. Do not point fingers at Peter only this problem commerced after the death of Bingu and its not a one man issue it affects the whole nation and everyone knows that Malawi is the poorest country,so what’s new?You opposition do you mean you can validate the kwacha within shortest period of time?? Mind you Malawi is from cashgate and dont cheat us that if you can get into power things will change that is totally alie !!!!

    • Which lady?Are you mad or not? To govern a country its not easy my friend! That lady steal all the money from government’s account and APM found nothing so let us wait and see rather than pointing out fingers to the rulling party!!

    • Mr Wonderson remember wea dat report came 4rom n i ask u 2go through again.. In jst dis bwana president’s period de kwacha has gone down wth de mentioned %ges. R u sure telling public dat dings dey ok dea… Yes dings can happen dat way,but whz z responsible 2control our kwacha? Whz else 2point finger? If u r comfortable wth de current situation den u hv 2remain mute. I thnk u dont knw hw much people dey suffering. Lets accept dat our leadership hz failed our economy.

    • Mr Gama am not saying that DPP under president APM is doing the best for the people get me clear please we have to give them advice so that for the mean time they can improve rather than talking shit blaming or inciting with words remember Malawi is from cashgate arrear so lets understand the situation untill something vigular happens

    • so what’s wrong @ cashgate, even peter steal alot of money when he was minister of education. so my bro don’t trust politian

    • Mr Wanderson are drank or crazy!? hw long since Peter take over the gvmt frm dat lady? n jst point out chimodzi cholozeka chomwe wachita? u are idiot my friend!!

    • CZ am not drunk but what you must know is that things never change onetime just like life its bit by bit so lets wait and see until 2019 then you will have an opportunity to change the ruling party and see if there can be crucial ammendments from that administration . In my opinion things will be alright with the current administration before the end of next year!!

    • Lucy nothing to urgue here the issue is to respect and advise the current administration so that it can correct their mistakes as soon as possible rather than using solicites words inciting the government it cant help us same applies if you are in love then you discover your partner cheating you cannot say fuckoff one time you sit down and discuss about the incident and if there is no change you can expel him/her.Therefore give chance to APM if nothing changes untill next year then you have right to bull him out of power come 2019!!!

  63. Even zambian kwacha is same. Appreciate wat u av guys .dont compare yours and foreign that will not lend help to you. Issue of currencies is global.

    • #obed dont lie check on SA rand, check on shilling tz , check on kwacha zambia.if u ar n zambia,wats de rate? Zambian kwacha is also in trouble. So dont fight malawi ,its yo country and u need yoself to change the face of malawi not dependg on bazungu and fights within yoselves. Av bin to lilongwe, chitipa, kalonga 3 times in 1992 1995 and 2014 and seen changes .

You have betrayed us finally! You good for nothing chimps! Illiterate people! Sons o bitches

  65. Stevie Kaliati we r not only crying bout the Kwacha ts the way that Gwape z misusing the money they way his leading our country so t doesn’t matter ur in his party but think bout ur country my Freind.

  66. bastards busy swearing at the president bring on solutions to stablelise the kwacha. B4 u comment check other countries currencies eg Rand is trading at R16.77 to a dollar from R13. SO wat do u think will be with kwacha in the land without resources eg mines and manufacturing industries? school urselves idiots who swear at the president B4 commenting

  67. I don’t think that will going to have some one else who gonna put things in order now and again we still going to devastating like that

  68. Most of you peoppe think you can repair a country a country in one day, grow up. It needs the collective effort of the people and the government to make a country. Complaining about rain but using charcoal shows the collaboration isn’t in Malawi, yet.

    • Ofcoz yes bt nw we talking of a year en 6 months in office,mavuto osewa y r they(gov officials)silent?pot azibwera mkumatilimbitsa mtima kut mavutowa taika ndondomeko izi nd izi kut tiwathetse,they r busy kugula magalimoto odhula,cabinet en their PS’s ma salary mbweee yet pipo r strugling kupeza chakudya

    • Yung Jay Limbani Kakhongwe yes, we have a shitty government. But, I’ve noticed that Malawi as a whole is a pushover, all our presidents have done little to help us and we know it, we knew it. But we do nothing but complain. We never protest about important matters, nor do we dare defy government or officials in there face. They all know that and take advantage of that. I doubt there will be thousands of people marching anytime soon to protest a bad governance, too much corruption, bad educational, health system, and many more important things we as a people need to address. I can bet you all hell would break loose if most other countries got the bullshit we’ve been getting since independence. Malawians tend to hide in the lie that its peaceful, and god will protect us, and that the world us ending. No, if the world was ending ww1 or 2 would have been a good time to end it, there are children being raped, old people being killed and you call it peaceful. Again, it all starts with us. We have to do something to ensure our own future. John chilembwe set a good example, people like him were plenty back then. Right now we are all sitting down waiting for a miracle to happen. Thats why Malawi will never change

  69. Iiii ndipo inu zomvetsa chisoni kwambiri… Ngati dirham yafika pa 194!!! Pofika Feb ikhala pa 200 zomvetsa chisoni dziko lathu

    • There is no peace in malawi.how can u say there is peace when l have no job.no money.no food to eat .almost everything.people killing each other.others being killed secretly .their is no peace in malawi.

    • So what are you doing about it? Vuto la a Malawife tulo too much. To me as long as we continue being sleepy there is peace. If we feel there is no peace then let’s do something

    • We are the main problem. ..we want everything for free,education, Medication, roads & many more,, Yet our Gvt lilibe zitsime zamafuta, migodi ya myala ya mtengo wapatali, ndye tikufuna przdnt zinthu zizienda cash yake akaipeza kuti. ..

    • If am not wrong the late Bingu tried his best to shutdown the old song of njala every year,Yes indeed sitidziwa kuthokoza, timakhutadi mu january but we faced political climate that changes our mind kukhala amalawi osathokoza,,khomo lanjala silimatukuka ndiponso samabwela alendo kuzacheza…Let us learn how to move forward together wina akawina, Every competition pamakhala number 1, Kaya akhala wa Mcp, Kaya Pp kaya Dpp even UdF, lets try to forgt kuti wawina ndindani, ndale zikatha lets work together us Malawi, atleast we can do somthng better… if not I swear tidzalira mpaka kale. ..

  70. So what’s wrong with that rating yaa we are poorest cont. hence…don’t remind us its like telling the needy that today there is no food what next? Should he kill himself? What are telling the malawians who know it better themselves go to hell

    • Allan I like the person who understand the situation,here in Malawi our government is really poorest and we can’t compare with other southern Africans countries because they’ve mines which they produce Gold,copper, Diamonds and many more,because of those stones its easy to boost their currency,ofcoz thy hv donors but they doesn’t relying on them like Malawians,
      Now thy want the current president to boost currency.. how??? its really impossible as of now..

    • PLEASE READ 0Conel thats what even people of zambia are criticising the Current Government under the leadership of EDGAR CHAGWA LUNGU. sometimes when things are bad it means they are bad ,and a president i just a Human being, Hes not God. people here are blaming the president 4 drought ,now is the president who wil make it rain, apart from that copper prices are too low at the world market thats why zambia has also become unsable and LOADSHEDDING which has been caused by poor planning by the previous GOVTs has affected zambia alot where by 3/4 of mine workers has been laid off…..Despite all the chalenges we are going through some which are beyond our control. Am sory to mention that OUR GOVERNMENT IS CORRUPT…AND IF ANYONE SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT NO TO CORRUPTION AND WHEN THE GOVERNMENT IS NOT CONFORTABLE THAT PERSON IS FIRED. there lets just understand the current staution we are in

  72. Latest evaluation,
    data:
    MWK396.74=1USD (31May 2014)
    MWK713.99=1USD (26Jan 2016)
    From this data you can estimate the loss in value of the MWK under APM’s “watch” to be about 44.4% and is getting worse.
