The United States Embassy has responded to accusations going around that the United States government is conniving with Malawi Congress Party and its leader Lazarus Chakwera to oust President Peter Mutharika.

US Ambassador Virginia Palmer targeted by Malawi government agents

In an interview with Malawi24, Edward J. Monster, Public Affairs Officer at the U.S. Embassy said the accusations are a total fabrication.

“The accusations are completely false.  The U.S. and Malawi enjoy a strong and productive relationship and we intend to continue working closely together for the benefit of the Malawian people,” said Monster.

The accusations, first published by a pro-government online publication, started when Chakwera went to the US where among other things he toured various states and attended a prayer breakfast in Washington DC where US president Barack Obama was the main Speaker.

Almost all Malawians that Malawi24 has monitored have however taken the coup plot allegations with a pinch of salt, arguing that the accusations are a propaganda by government and agents of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) intended to divert attention from the numerous problems Malawians are facing.

  1. It’s better to remain pocketless, eating gaga wt denje while I live in peace other than having lots of large full pockets while am a slave. These rich devilish american cockroaches are used to do that. Ask Egypt, Lybia, Iraq, Afghanistan. I tell u. They wl destroy us. They will use us then leave us in rugs. Asowe, I hate them.

    • good question cornie kasongo..here is a government machinery& there are people we call leaders whose main responsibility is to champion policy making.after we’ve chosen them,then they tend to forget that they are stewards,they are making policies which are not pro-poor.they are arrogant,dont hear our concerns.its simple to undrstand that we need someone who is patriotic,one who knows exactly what to do to move this country forward,not try &error.in a nutshell,a good policy maker will turn things around.peter doesn’t seem like one

  19. All because of politics of food. DPP chose as it’s insignia maize cobs on a blue background. That there is no maize in Malawi means that the DPP ceases to exist as well. Wake up Malawians. I am really shocked that one quasi reliable online publication in the name of NYASATIMES decided to throw reason to the dogs and went on to publish the fake story. NYASATIMES has disappointed me.

  20. DPP is inciting for itself the wrath of Malawians. DPP thinks that it’s very witty than any other person. This is very unfortunate and I’m very very very very bitter myself.

  21. That’s is a cheap propaganda coming in by DPP government through Nickolas Dausi. DPP has failed to run the government and this time the whole system is confused they just want to divert people’s attention from real issues to useless issues .

    The whole nation knew already that the story has been faked by DPP government machinery through Dausi .
