Malawi Hunger: Mutharika insists no one has died of starvation

137

Malawi President Peter Mutharika maintains no single person has died of hunger in the country during the current growing season.

Speaking when he opened this year’s tobacco market in Lilongwe, Mutharika said his government will continue to make sure that no one in the country dies of hunger even though he admitted that there has been extreme hunger this year.

Peter Mutharika: Stuck to his guns.

He further faulted all media houses in the country that reported that a person died of hunger in Mzimba. He claimed   the person was a refugee and he died after he was left alone in the bush.

According to Mutharika, even though the country is facing a food crisis, still there is no one who died or will die of hunger.

“I have been told by the Malawi police service and the intelligence bureau that no one died of hunger in the country although some media houses reported the matter.

“There is also the Balaka case where it was reported that a baby died of hunger as her mother was trying to buy maize at an Admarc depot. Upon doing investigations, this wasn’t true and there is nobody who died of hunger there too,” said Mutharika.

He added that it is very worrisome hearing that some leaders were demanding a one minute silence in Parliament in honour of people who died of hunger.

“This is very a worrisome development, which people? This is total irresponsible leadership and from now am commanding to stop politicizing hunger. Hunger has not been caused by DPP, it is caused by God himself,” said Mutharika president.

He then asked people not to sell their produce to vendors and urged Malawians to unite with the aim of harvesting more food.

  12. Not dying bcoz of hunger doesn’t mean that people had food, but it’s God’s secret. If people would die in hunger conditions or in times of hunger, communities would have lost their values and neighbours surrounding the dead person more especially the bereavements. So is not an issue of standing on a Rock claiming that none has died with hunger, doing that is inhuman.

  13. mkulu ameneyu ndi chibwana akulankhulachi amafuna anthu ammudzi mwake afe ndiye avomereze kuti anthu ena adafa ndi njala? Vuto munthu ameneyu sanabadwe ndi utsogoleri zidangochitika kuti Muluzi ankafuna kukhaulitsa anthu amchipani mwake mapeto ake adakatenga munthu wapadera ndiye lero ndi izi zapota aChewa kuvutika osati masewera kulankhula ngati mzimai? nayenso uyu ofalitsa nkhani wayamba kuusenda mwano aMalawi tili pavuto ndale zonunkha zija ziyambanso ndi mzimai ameneyu kunyoza too much

  14. The problem is that the president is surrounded by people who don’t tell him the truth, people who when they look at the president they automatically collapse to the ground, president is fed with wrong information and he doesn’t even scrutinise it because he is rest assured what his men are saying is a maximum% . We have some people getting STIs in admarc isn’t that death? We have children dying of starvation isn’t that death? Aaaaaaah inu anthu inu muuzeni mtsogoleri zinthu zoona, Malawi will soon reach a point of begging maize and other financial help from some people such as Bushiri and others. We need to be realistic.

  15. Ukakhala pansana panjovu usamati kulibe mame; madalawa akuwoneka kuti zoti anthu mmidzimu akuvutika, ena afa atadya zikhawo komanso ena afa ndi matenda osoweka zakudya alibe nazo ntchito. Next time we will bring you malirowo, mwina ukufuna udzachite ndiwo.
