…wants US$246 million

Mutharika sought the assistance while addressing the 71st Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA.

Peter Mutharika: Malawi needs help.

Over 6.5 million people in Malawi this year require food assistance due to low food production during the last growing season.

The Malawi leader told the audience that his government is currently doing all it can to provide food for the hunger victims.

“However, we need and seek external support of our cooperating partners and multilateral institutions within and outside the UN systems. We still need US$246 million for this cause,” Mutharika said.

He added that if Malawi can get the money, the country will be able to end the hunger crisis.

Mutharika also told the dignitaries that Africa and the rest of the world is suffering from dehumanizing poverty, the pain of hunger, disgraceful inequalities and unjustifiable gender imbalances.

He added that most of the tragedies and challenges being experienced, are man-made and the solutions lie in people’s hands.

  1. Tht is stupidity at its highest fron the president there Instead of trying to come up wth valid solutions to end hunger in our country coz we have all the natural resources in Malawi bt this man can’t see, make easy 4 investor’s n so on. And he’s busy begging! he is Stupid old man

  2. He is a very good president.He thinks abt his country.wat abt mnzakhe Mugabe amatukwana azungu basi khoma kusauka kuli kupweteka dziko lakhe.

  3. apart from natural disaster ,sometimes hunger is the result of regional/district leaders who are not competent enough to supervise efficiency in food management , provision of better agricultural education to their people and that problem of consuming or selling seeds to be planted next season. Magufuri has warned that any region which will declare food shortage, Regional commissioner will have to go.

  4. The donors should also know why Malawians are so poor after clocking 52 years of independence. Mwayamba nanu kupemphetsatu mumayesa njala ndiyamasewera eti.

  6. So they want to add 330million dollars,they shared with his 7ministers.dont ever.just come your self to give the poor your self.this arrogant thieves hv already finished us.

  7. KKKKK, KOMA ABALE MKULUWAKE ANATHETSA NJALA KUTI?? IDAKAKHALA KUTI ANATHETSA NJALA NDIYE ANTHU AKAMAVUTIKASO NDI NJALA LELO?? MUNTHU ANALENGEDWA NDI NJALA NJALA MWA MUNTHU SIIMATHA AI.

  8. He was right, what alternative do you think Malawi can be helped? Malawi needs to be boosted by these big fish Mr. President was pleading to

  9. Until when should we remain beggars till when till when? We have natural resources in Malawi. But the problem is we don’t want to share equally. That is the reason why they demand us to allow homosexuals,lebsians,sex works, satanic the list goes on. If u are a beggar u wil do whatever it takes to please the donor. What suprise me is in Malawi we have less than 20million population. Whereby they are askn $246 million. Then why cant they give every citizen 1million Mk and the rest they keep 4 next hunger. Amayeeee ndalila ine i am being used as a begging tool. That was few month USAID pledge millions of dollars. Why cant we invest to stop begging all the time. I smell the money want to be used to pay teachers and campaign. God is watching u.
