…ranks Mutharika an average President
Former head of the Safe Motherhood Initiative who is also the head of the Nurses and Midwives organisation of Malawi Dorothy Ngoma has chided her replacement in the position, Callista Mutharika.
In an interview with the media in which Ngoma was commenting on the current socio-political situation, Ngoma found an opportunity to hit at Callista who happens to be a sister-in-law to current President Peter Mutharika.
When asked how she would rate the performance of her successor, she did not hide her displeasure with the former first lady. Ngoma said that she was better than Callista under whose watch there has been silence on Safe Motherhood issues.
“There used to be chiefs, like Kwataine, who were very active in issues of safe motherhood but where are they now?” she asked mocking the reign of her successor.
She further commented on the reign of Peter Mutharika. She said that the Mutharika regime was mostly failing the health sector.
Ngoma cited the decision by the government to recall fresh nurses it had deployed and it’s failure to provide food to patients as cases of failure.
When asked to rank Mutharika, she said he is an average President who would get a 4 out of 10 in an exam.
