Solid as the rock: Mutharika speaks tough on Land Bill

144

President Peter Mutharika says he is surprised by calls from some human rights activists for him not to assent to the Land Bill.

In a statement through his press secretary Mgeme Kalirani, Mutharika said the bill was not forced down the throats of legislators in Parliament.

On Monday, Billy Mayaya who is a renowned human rights activist led a group of people who were demonstrating against the land bill.

Mayaya and his group said they are seeing no goodness of turning the bill into law saying people in the village are at the risk of losing their land to the government, hence no need for Mutharika to approve the bill.

Mutharika: Turns his ire on the position.

During the demonstrations, Mayaya also argued that the bill has so many loopholes which need to be looked into and ironed out before taking effect.

However, the state president through his spokesperson said he has been taken aback by the calls from the activists.

The Malawi leader argued that the bill was brought to parliament and was passed by the members of the chamber.

He said this could not be reasonable enough considering that Mayaya is an individual and the law was passed in the bill by a group of people who are Members of Parliament.

  14. The truth is Peter is now going mad.He has run out of ideas of bailling malawians out of poverty. He came to power without concrete polices,why punishing the poor like this?We thought we have the right man but tinangoyimbila mfiti mmanja.God help us,this man is a devil

  17. I don’t know how to run the nation. But my opinion is that this may be a good idea if you deeply understand it. Only that this may hinder the village people somehow somewhere

  18. ATTRIBUTES OF OUR LEADER: 1. ‘CONTACT AND DIALOGE’ DOES NOT EXIST IN HIS DICTIONARY. 2. HIS DECISIONS ARE FINAL. HE CANNOT APOLOGISE, WHICH WAS TYPICAL OF HIS LATE BROTHER. 3. HE LIKES TO ACT BEHIND THE SCENE. THE FEES HIKE AND THE LAND BILL ARE BOTH HIS INITIATIVES. HE PRETENDS TO BE INNOCENT YET HE IS A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. 4. HE DOES NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF POVERTY. I WONDER IF HE EVER HAD HIS SCHOOL HERE IN MALAWI.

  28. Is none of my bizness because am tired to heard stories for this mother fucker President.why always he likes to talk shit,kaki things he must leave to rule us his nanyongo

  29. That is not going to happen. (1) The goverment have’nt put infrustrature in some of the rural area and they want tax. What for? As far as i know the goverment must put good infrastracture eg good roads, health facilites, education etc. Then tax must go to pple who have big bussines and big houses/surbubs not ordinary pple. They must pay 5% the value of the house every year as rates like other countries. #No Tax #Step down mr President u have done enough damage . If we can vote now no one wil vote u.
