This day in history: President Mutharika dies for the first time

534

In 2012 on 5 April, rumours started making rounds that the Malawi leader Dr. Bingu wa Mutharika had died.

People on Facebook started posting of strange events that were happening at the Kamuzu Central Hospital. Among other things, government officials and the first lady at that time Callista Mutharika were seen running up and down at KCH. Radio broadcasts were made but most were cautious.

Bingu wa Mutharika

Bingu wa Mutharika died today, in 2012

Behind the scenes, current President Peter Mutharika was busy forcing doctors to resuscitate his brother although he had been told in no uncertain terms that his brother had passed on.

Mutharika’s death came days after Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua had said that a leader in Southern Africa would die. Joshua did not mention any name but he had indicated that the death would be sudden.

Mutharika’s death was indeed sudden. He died in a meeting with one of his female ministers. Other people close to him had later said that he was in good health when they had met him that morning. His death was later established to have been a cardiac arrest. It was said that his heart failed.

Despite that Mutharika was dead, the government officials including Malawi’s current President Peter Mutharika agreed that he had to be flown to South Africa for medical attention.

In the evening, MBC aired a statement that Mutharika was sick and had been flown to South Africa for specialty attention. In the next days however it would announce the death of Mutharika.

Strangely when the body of Mutharika was brought home, the dates of his death were unstable. It was once registered as 7, 6 and of course 5 April, meaning Mutharika had 3 days to die.

This day in history is not just the day when Bingu wa Mutharika died. It is the day when he died for the first time, he will die again in the coming two days.

  24. He was once a visionary leader, especially in his first term; but he turned into a tyrany and a big thief in his second term. We will remember him as a visionary tyrany leader, unlike his brother who is complete empty headed. Kkkkk!

  25. The writer is right. Authorities at the time did not want the nation to know that Bingu had died so they concealed it until doctors in South Africa certified it.

  26. “president mutharika dies for the first time” are you kidding me right now? Do i need to point out whats wrong with this sentence or will you just correct it

  29. he was the type of good leader who cannot be forgotten by anybody with sober mind.i miss him a lot because he was a visionary leader who cannot be compared with anybody who has ever ruled this country. we never had parliament building before and our parliamentarians had to be meeting in the state house dinning room.he built it.we never had our owm mra building,he built it.all his predecessors failed to construct chitipa -karonga road,he did it.he constructed the magnificent university (must).he built bingu international conference centre,5star hotel,he cleared and constructed tarmac roads in local areas in towns.he managed to remove all the vendors in the streets which was a tall order.the list goes on.no wonder he was nicknamed the genuine ngwazi. may his soul rest in peace

    • Bingu was a visionary leader only 8 yrs in power he managed to put Malawi at at a high level interms of tight security, infrastructural developments, food security , stability of Kwacha, honouring father of the nation Dr H.K Banda ,food security the list is endless. In my opinion he was indeed 85% good leader may his soul rest in peace.

    • &i didnt see the question mark reuben.to mr mboga,if you see most of the buildings in town,they were built in the era of one kamuzu banda.he built the M1 road from north to south.if u mean what u are saying,lets draw comparisons between kamuzu& bingu interms of infrastructure dvt.malawi has never attained required security levels.i can mention names of people who died under bingus era.i was also a victim by the way.i was ambushed in february 2012.on food security,i think u are referring to the FISP but if anything,bingu did nothing to ensure food security.the green belt initiative didn’t work.u’ll agree that FISP has been a thorn in the flesh of our economy.check the IMF directives,subsidy ndi ya ma president osazindikila.praise to JB for automatic fuel pricing mechanism.bingu was probably a worst performer
