Mutharika says Malawians are ‘too cold’

237

President Peter Mutharika has hit out at Malawians for being too “cold” to each other saying they are only warm when interacting with strangers.

The Malawi leader was speaking in Thyolo where he presided over the elevation of Traditional Authority Ngolongoliwa to position of Senior Chief.

In his speech, Mutharika said the country does not deserve to continue being called a Warm Heart of Africa because its citizens have stopped being friendly to each other.

“Can we seriously say we are the warm heart of Africa? Or we are warm to strangers while being cold to each other. We need to stop castigating each other if we are to have peace in this country,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika: Malawians are too cold.

The president also subtly hit back at people calling for his resignation saying they are opposing for the sake of opposing.

Said Mutharika: “The problems we are facing are for all Malawians and are also being faced all over the world. We can only overcome them if we work together and love one another.”

On the maize crisis, Mutharika insisted that the staple grain is available in Agriculture Development and Marketing Corporation (Admarc) depots across the country but it is being stolen by unscrupulous people.

“How can one steal maize so that other people should die? Is that wise? That is stupid,” said Mutharika and promised to make a statement on the crisis.

On Ngolongoliwa, the Malawi leader praised the chief calling him a “dictionary” for the Lhomwe people and said he was loyal to Mutharika before he became president.

“When we were in opposition some people were talking ill of me saying that no one in Thyolo wants the professor, but chief Ngolongoliwa remained loyal to me,” said Mutharika.

He however warned chiefs who beat people and grab land from them that if they continue to do the evil acts he will give them a “holiday”.

  8. i also watched and listened to his speech closely just like many others.I thought there were some areas in it not really important at that particular time but somehow he was spot on.A good example was about a flag that costs K850,people still want it purchased by the leaders. In other words he meant most of us if not all of us want everything for free.Education, Health Care etc

  9. I agree with him 100%,Malawians are bad to each other no wonder we are still poor.We can’t just give the blame to our readers.First let us remove the Poverty virus in us then Malawi will develop.

  10. May Government make a plan to fetch Youth to South Africa through the Minister of labour to pay a visit with the aim of seen how people are workiing. Most of the works are hard and people are sereos working hard to survive. Kuno mupeza ati Bambo, Mai ake aujeni zuwa lonse mu show, pabawo, pamowa zuwa lomse. Mavuto atha bwa? Anthu ngati amenewa ndiamene amangotukwana chifukwa alibe nzeru afuna President wa ma handouts

That’s acollect malawi is no more warm heart of africa because instead of looking our problems that we are facing in our country we are busy to blame apresident that it can’t help us to solve our problems what we must know is not only malawi is facing trouble but most needed thing is unity,just need unity to work as we are all malawians to not see your race,religion or party this can bring some changes

  28. I had the chance to listen to the speech. He gave very good reasons why malawians are “cold” and not “warm”. Ndi zifukwa zomveka bwino kwambiri kwa omva mwa umunthu. But the problem with we malawians, we politicise everthing. Ndale zinabwera mochedwa kwathu kuno, kwachuluka mbuli zophunzira.

  34. From the president’s speech, he did not specifically mention who is cold and/or from which region. But reading the comments here, one would easily identify these people…starting with their original region to the party and tribe the belong to. Truth must be told, however, that these people are very few and thinks if Malawi falls, they will eventually become Americans. Lets join hands addressing the problems our beloved country is facing regardless of our respective political, religious and tribal differences. DZIKOMO

  38. We are still a warm heart of Africa, if there’s a change then its you who has brought it. You have brought hatred amongst malawians and u xpect them to love each other. Malawi is more divided now than it was bfore u became president. You allocate most of development to the south the region u come from. You claim to be a billionair but you cant share what you hav with the needy. You make a number of promises but u fulfil a few. How i wish malawi was divided so that each region shud hav its own leader. I dont hate you but i hate ur policies.

    • Abwana thank you for your writing and its really true this educated brute has brought alot of hatred among malawians.Just imagine Mulhako wa Alomwe.whos money is financing that? Taxpayers .This is the worst president Malawi will ever produce.

    • You mean we work together to develop the south? While the rest of the regions are suffering. I hope one day God will give us a neatral leader who will develop malawi as a whole. Inu mwati population yathu ndiyochepa i want to inform you that cape verde has a population of just over 600,000 pple but they are a standalone country and their economy is better than that of malawi with 15,000,000 pple.

  40. The majority of the Malawians are from the hands of the late His Excellence president Kamuzu Banda under one party system. It did a lot of damage that people were afraid to express themselves. Now is democracy and people had no workshop to understand what multi party system is about and how to address important issues politically. Fear and ignorance make the majority of the Malawians cold as the President has said. Don’t expect the new president will change that, it will take a long time but unfortunately the moral of many people today is just a disaster and it is as if there are no churches. Malawians must support their president unconditionally.

  47. If the president himself offers cold shoulder to the problems affecting the country, what then do you expect of the citizenry? Answer me mr hypocrite coz you are talking about your own character.

  48. We Malawians It Shows We Hav Forgoten Whre We Ar Coming From,wher We Are &where We Are Going,we Need To Ask God For Guidance,let Us Stop Pinpointing Each Other.

  49. Yeah the President was just right indeed M,alawians are completely too cold to each and just on this everyone can agree with him. Timakonda anthu bower more than fellow Malawians. Kudana too much . Lets change our behavior to cope back as the old warm heart of Africa!!

  50. Pitala , how can join hands to work together with inferiors, yet you dpp bustards you regard yourselves as serpents, untouchable,unadvisable,uncompromtsable, uncofrotable, etc etc. How many times have Malawians have asked/ advised you to change your crooket, and dubius way of handling issues of national conern, was there any single time you bothered io listen, agree with, and follow what genuine Malawians are advising your administration to do?
    About maize crisis [shortage] in all Admarc markets across the country, please be honest, don’t blame other people no, but you be saiing your scrupulous dpp crooket people including yourself. Honestly, you dpps are terrible,and merciless.

  51. THE PROBLEM HERE IS NOT THAT MALAWIANS ARE NOT FRIENDLY PEOPLE THE PROBLEM IS THAT IF THEY TRY TO ADVICE THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PRESIDENT YOU DONT LISTEN ANY PEOPLES ADVICE THATS WHY PEOPLE NOW ARE TIRED
