Mzuzu City Council defies Mutharika

133

The Malawi President Peter Mutharika has expressed concern over the refusal by Mzuzu City Council to disburse the K7.7 million he donated to flood victims.

Confirming the development, Presidential press secretary Mgeme Kalirani said Mutharika “trusted” that the council will disburse the money to the victims.

Mutharika facing impeachment calls

Mutharika goes angry on his donation.

But the council said that they are will not disburse the money arguing that well-wishers already donated money to the people who were affected by the floods.

The council’s official responsible for disasters Felix Namakwa said Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA) donated K20,000 to each household.

“ADRA and other well-wishers have been donating money to them, they got K5,000 later they got K15,000 each household in total they got K20,000,” said Namankwa.

The donation has since led to chaos in the camps with the flood victims threatening to demonstrate if the council continues to refuse to disburse the money.

During the 2016 floods in Mzuzu, six people died and agricultural land was affected.

  1. let’s get the facts straight. The council did not refuse to disburse the money. in fact most receipients have already accessed the money. The council wants to: (1) give the money to victims tat did not benefit from the initial money disbursements. (2) give money to those in camos so they can go out of the camp and rebuild their houses (3) remove ghost victims from the list.
    Let us learn to be patriotic. name calling will not get us anywhere.

Its just unfotunate kuti anthu mumanyoza anthu akumpoto as if kumpoto kumakhala mtundu umodzi wa anthu,kuli alomwe ambilimbili you can be suprised to find them even in the romotest areas there,come September and October you ll see boarding buses to the north and in there large numbers thet feel north bound buses,and you wonder if the Northerners are so bad why do these good alomwes treck there in there large numbers,honestly we hate the Northerners because most of them stand for what they believe and they are not hand clapers,after Malawi is one be it North or where ever,we can have our differences its normal let us toralate each ,our Prezdent gesture cant be appreciated by all but he should not stop doing good,

  10. Ithink abig blame should go to advisors of the president…Why splashing all that money to Mzuzu flood victimz? Now do u see wht type of embarassment hv u guys brought to the head of state… Munthu osayamika ndi osayamika basi.. no matter wht sangayamike….. we hv pple inthe south who are still failing to recover following last years floods… why not giving this money to them and see the form of thank u the head of state will be showered with. Even kuwapasa just aplastic pale they will say thank u….. Zikutinyansa ife kaya…Malawi as anation has more problems that require money and ngati ena ali ndi mtima wa ufiti osayamika osawanyengerera. Ofcourse Iknow amene akunyozawa ali ku blantyre, Lilongwe ndipo kuti achangangawo ndi amene nyumba zao zagumuka ku masasa ndi madera ena. If u guys were really intelligent why did u allow ur azimbwiye kumamanga is such diaaster prone areas?… NOSENSE..

  11. kodi mumafunabe thandizo kuchokera ku malawi?simumanena motumbwa kuti mwayamba dziko lanu,makape anyani zitsiru,osawapasa kumene azaphwekesa kkkk

  12. Last week world bank yapereka 57 million dollar yothandidzila ma flood victims ndiye muipange times pa USD1=MK700x57 million ndi ma billion angati? Nanga bwanji akuwapatsa change chokha zonsezo zapita kuti?

    • U must be from enukwenu or hora.. iguess…. We had floods inthe south bt we never heard of such nosense…. Iblame those who advised the president to splash the money to stupid idiots omwe sadziwa kuthokoza. pliz can u concentrate on rebuilding flood hit areas of nsanje, chikwawa as well as phalombe and atleast u will get athank u whole heartedly with even giving abeneficiary just apale.

    • World bank kupereka last week almost 40 bilion kwacha zoona angawatemere 7 milion? Is not even a billion, where is other money? Bolani othandizawa azingobwera okha basi asamapatse mbavazi

    • Yasimin Mahala Ulije Ur Mind Z Basin On Racism,dont B Flattered With Small Amount V Money.The Donation Z Too Huge.How Can They Gv Them A Change??They Want To Confuz People’s As If They Hav Uz The Whole Amount V Money Yet They Are Corruptv.We Want Dvt In Our Country Not Squanderin Money Anyhow.#note: We Want Malawi To Conect The Oil Pipe Line Route Connectin Tanzania And Zambia For Internation Trade For Malawians Would Beneft Alot Since It Wil B Cheaper As Oil Car Tankers Are Goin To Get Oil From Chitipa Or Karonga.
