Mutharika is losing power to Chakwera – activist warns

237

The Malawi leader Peter Mutharika is facing an inside rebellion from within government, an activist has warned.

In a Facebook post activist Ben Chiza Mkandawire has said that the government of Peter Mutharika was slowly losing popularity among top technocrats in the country who have been seen to be associating with the leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera.

Peter Mutharika and Lazarus Chakwera

‘Mutharika losing power to Chakwera’

Mkandawire posted after what he claims to have been Principal Secretaries of unnamed ministries who were at Kamuzu International Airport to welcome the opposition leader on his return from USA.

“In plain view, I saw a number of PSs (Principal Secretaries) and senior government officials among the VIPs that were at the airport to welcome Chakwera,” he posted indicating that some officials in government were pledging allegiance to the leader of opposition.

The remarks have come at a time that reports have surfaced alleging that the MCP leader is plotting to overthrow the government of Peter Mutharika which is losing popularity owing to its failure to contain the hunger situation.

When it was put to him if he was alleging that the ‘coup’ being talked about in the online media, Mkandawire was coy commenting but indicated that coups are orchestrated from inside throughout history.

He then urged state President Peter Mutharika to evaluate his power grip arguing he is slowly losing it.

  5. Why are Malawian like your friends in zambia?you hate real change.Malawi Zambia lets try Dr L.Chakwera & Zambia lead the way plz.

    • Kodi osankha ndife. Kodi mungoti achakwela. kuli better people more than him. we do have other leaders who knows better than chakwela. God has given us abundant leaders who are hidden now. but at the mean time it peter mutharika. let us support him until he finishes his job and chooses us another leader. don’t have shall thinking that it is only chakwela . eg the USA has many great leaders at different times and most of them were unknown people. they were rejected stones. even the respected university rejected then and withdrawn (anawawida). u will be disappointed in ur life that may be he might not a leader like ababa but life leader of opposition. have critical thinking mind.

  6. Amalowesa njala simsogoleli nthawi zina amatha kukhala omusatila ache. Let us check up ourselves how we we d thongs b4 pointing fingers or blaming others.

  8. Seriously never compare Chakwera to Peter, Chakwera can be better only that he is representing a wrong party, the party which reminds us bad times 90% & 10% better. I dont know but I do see no one fit to be a president of this poverty country.

  9. Kodi inu mukuwona ngati mabvuto onsewo mukuwanenawa angamalize yekha iyeyo! Ife amalawi basi just except it kuti dziko lathu ndilovutika basi

  16. Who is Chakwera at all,the ex man of God? What can Jonah do to drive Malawi back to its origin if he has managed to run away from the Almighty God? Now is being ruled by adevil and is worshiping agod then he will just finish us, let us wake up and look for agood leader in 2019 if indeed APM has failed us bcoz Chakwela has already angers the one and living God and if we make amistake to take him as our leader then we are in abig trouble

  17. Malawi is one hell of a country. A nation without tangible goals, a nation with lame policies etc. Politicians keep tossing malawians up and down they just stand there and look. Malawi is a nation full of ignorant people and don’t know how to hold their leaders accountable. Malawi will never change, regimes will come and go, it’ll still remain #TheWarmHeartOfPoverty

    • You are right. Politically induced hunger. Through out the year our water flow down to lndian ocean. Poor method of farming, at 50, people still using hoes? They can’t import new breed of donkeys distribute them to the poor on loan, with plows? Lower Shire alone, can feed the entire Sadic, and the so called floods can be used to our advantage, (rice farming).

  18. Achakwere mukuzitenga ngat inu adolo panali anzanu a jb ankapanga ngat zomwezo mmbuyomu mulungu anapanga njila yot awonekele poyela kuti owowo ndiabodza ndipo zinachitikad inunso mwayamba mwalephela kutumikila nkhosa zamulungu lelo mukufunanso kuzunza anthu amulungu musamale akulu ngati mwainu umunthu ulimo mukuyenela kufasa chimene tisanakusankhileni tinaona kuti inu umunthu mulibe koma muli ndi usatana lelondiizitu

  19. Malawian activists,oppositions in disguise,suppose u r given chance to rule Malawi,can u transform this country that everyone can be appreciative?Don’t mislead pipo mind ur businesses.

  20. I fail to understand this statement as it makes no sense at all in the context of our democracy.

    President Mutharika can’t lose power to Chakwela, who is the leader of the opposition, in the middle of the president’s mandated term of office; that will be a coup, contrary to our constitution. The president cannot lose power when influential bureaucrats cozy up to Chakwela, as that is not how we confer power from one individual to the other in Malawian politics.

    The statement is factually incoherent and delivers a distorted view. The correct statement could have been that the president is losing influence amongst the elite…and that cannot be loss of power as he can only lose power at the ballot.

  21. Kodi Chatsikayo Adzakhala Ndi Currency Yake ?Ngati Akulephera Kuyendetsa Chipani Ndiye Angayendetse Dziko?Tingomuuza Bushiri Abweretse Miracle Money Kumalawi.

  22. Only GOD will fix this. you are blind never judge dpp by failure it came through back door don’t forget and i witnessed something set already for 2019. our wish may to vote them out but that vote turns to be their algebra which the authorities will buy it. you may need to reform elections laws and its drivers first or else they want give room to a strange goverment that would investigate and faultify them of what happen last year. it’s not dpp’s fault but corrupt MEC officials. I have evidence enough

  23. Aaaa Aaa? Osadikila Kuti Muvoteredwe? Akukupopani Ndindani? Komadi Ndinu Munthu Wopemphela? Aaaayyyiiiii Achakwela Ngati Muli Munthu Oganiza Dikilani 2019 Basi ! Simungasinthe Malawi In 2days! Komanso Nkhanza Zija Simunasiye? MCP? Aaaaaaaaaa!

    • Litata mukunenalo ndi mmene ali,he has managed to accomplish almost everything that u can not even match him at 0.00 digit.inuyo opanda litatanu ndinu ndani pamalawi pano?ife sitimakudziwani.musamakambe za chilema cha munthu popeza zanu zitha kubwela ku ukulu.

  24. what I know APM is the current present and the man in charge, even if you talk of hunger in Malawi we all know that last year we had floods all over Malawi. Work hard and provide for your families rather than pointing fingers on government because what I know when there’s hunger in a country people can have money and fail to buy maize but here in Malawi there’s maize and if you have money you can buy

  25. Kodi they are still many idiots who are still supporting the current government ndi mmene zinthu zasokonekeramu u still doesn’t see anything wrong malawians are all fools especially lomwes

  26. Don’t judge that Chakwera will never rule Malawi, are u God urself? You may ignorantly try to punch out Chakwera’s growing popularity and declare that he will never be Malawi President, but take note that God always sides with God fearing pple like him to be leaders of pple. He is growing popular each and every day but u ignorantly don’t know that God is causing all that. U can scandalize, judge and try to conceal his popularity but will labor in vain becoz what God has blessed is blessed for good and all and nobody can stop that. God himself install and demote leaders on his Timeframe. 2019 u may vote for APM again but if God want Chakwera to be president u will vote in vain, so judging is the responsibility of God not a person like u.

    • Wise commenting. God side with His ppo to rule other ppo. Infact when ppo say ‘Chakwera wil never rule this country’ that’s when God is making more ppo to rally behind Chakwera.. I used to say MCP wil never rule again, but now God changed my thinking, and now I see Chakwera reigning Malawi and the country wil be the most blessed one in Africa within 2 years.

  27. Mmm guyz our GOD is calling us,,,praying is much better than political,,,lets keep on praying,,mwina we will enter in the kingdom of God,,,endless,,,,,,

  35. Is it a crime for PS to welcome the opposition leader?Malawi 24/25 do you believe one can be on power without been voted for….then you are taking malawians for granted.

  38. That’s just what you want to tell us today?? Chakwerah n his dirty mcp will not even rule this country. God has cursed him n the rest of the members of the party. He is so greedy that he wants his friend n the entire Malawi to bow down to him for his silly words,,,,,,,,, I can see a silly MCP supporter trying to punch his/her keypads on my comment,, shame to you. That Yona of yours will not rule us. He betrayed God n God shall betray him too

  40. All the Politicians are crooks. Non of them is good. Just imagine a Man Of God turning to be a Politician instead of a Politician to b christian, dyera. Vuto we do change the President but the rest are always the same crooks. A President is not government but People

    • Read the Bible – men of God running the affairs of the people. It’s not a sin to be a politician. It’s man who has turned politics into what it is today. Men of God, not croocks, must run this world – don’t you think?

    • ..and for your on information Politics started in the church, and it was brought to Africa by the same churches..so in short wherever there is church there is politics and the opposite is true..
