Malawi President Mutharika under fire over long stay in the US

184

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has received backlash for his continued stay in the United State of America where he went to attend the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

Peter Mutharika on his arrival in the US.

Mutharika addressed the 71st UNGA last week and was one of the first to do so. The Malawi leader was also one of the first foreign dignitaries to arrive for the UN gathering 10 days ago.

But he is still hanging around in the US, delivering lecturers and receiving awards. He hailed the two awards he received over the weekend saying they show that the global community has hopes in the country’s development plan.

However, some Malawians have criticized Mutharika over his extended stay in the US saying he should come back home and attend to the ailing economy.

Social commentator Idris Ali Nassah blasted Mutharika for his unwillingness to come back to Malawi and called on him to take a leaf from other leaders who are back in their countries after attending the UN meeting.

He wrote: “Peter Mutharika of Malawi is still in New York for UNGA. He was first in town and won’t leave until every other leader has left.”

And later tweeted: “Zuma is back Uhuru is back Mugabe is back Magufuli didn’t go Mutharika still in New York waiting for UNGA closing ceremony.”

  1. Please APM make sure that you get your hair cut before returning to Nyasaland. Kuno zinthu zavuta.life is a miserly. You will badly shocked. Kuchigayo, barber shop,4n charging , the list goes on ndi ma midnight activities. What a shame!!!!!!!!

  2. Kodi ku amelekako akudya ndalama zanu?akumwa tea wannyumba mwanu?ayi uchisilu sufunikaayi,ngati mwasowachochita pitani kwa bushiri akakupaseni miracle ndalama pokhalila panu.

  3. Functions of the president: To attend international conferences on behalf of its citizens. When i was at xool ankatiuza zimenezo! So i can see de problem!

  4. Malawi amandilankhulitsa ngati wa nzeru komanso opanda nzeru nthawi zina. The engine of malwi is hardly smelling peace. Problems in malawi are beyond human control. My fellow mathematicians if APM fails to solve malawis problems in many days in malawi how do we think his early coming to malawi may hold the bull by horn. If this is not jelousy then let him stay to his planned time. And for those backing him in investors name let u stop this falancy. Nowhere to invest in malawi unless we root out power shortages,security lickages too much thivies and higher taxes. When one investors is in malawi, s/he shares information. All in all lets find means to develop our homes as the nation fails to develop.

    • That’s why we are poor and we will remain poor if we will continue with this altitude of pleasurising our leaders.

  19. I blame bingu wamutharika, for importing his brother from America to malawi. We were better without this man, who in some regions is called president. Poverty has been malawi’s problem number one, but now they swopping with peter mutharika. When we are not complaining about poverty, then we complaining about peter mutharika. Infact he has become our problem number one now. A day never passes without hearing him, doing the wrong things in the presence of a team of advisors. He needs to be surrounded by fresh brains bcoz his, is aged hence cannot make the right decisions at the right time. He better stay there we will not miss him. Tima allowance watolerato ayambirepo kumeneko.

  20. Nothing wrong with his prolonged stay? Are we sure we are thinking correctly? Magufuli didn’t go coz 19 people died due to am earthquake in TZ. Total statesmanship! We are first to go and last to leave when our economy is on a sick-bed like this? This is a total joke! Total crap!

  21. Let him see his grandchildren. No one can stop this guy and he always follows his nose.. if he cares about u, he cud not repeat this. Man aja alibe pulobulemutu

  22. Tamusiyeni Nyani wathuyu palibe champhindu chomwe akupangapo pa Malawi pano.Stupid Presidency & now we are jst waiting 4 the rain this 2019 CHAKWERA to plough & plant delicious fruits

    • Zoona not Chakwera Koma Pitara because he is very good man, we lack nothing in Malawi now. He is a professor who is bringing water, electricity and cashgate scandals. Yes he is a wise leader and he is a blessing to us . Malawi now is better than all the other times and Pitala is the best president, not the Ibu who doesn’t know how to speak his own language. We have plenty food in Malawi now, zitete and mbewa so we are blessed with our polofesa. Jealousy down please…

  23. Hating The Way Malawians Doing Nowadays.Cant Even Understand.Fond Of Insulting Own Leaders.Not Respecting Them.Other Countries Do See And Hear Our Dids.Thats Why Today Are Delibarately Entering This Country With Demands Of Resources Eg Lake And River.Maybe God Has Left Us Following Open Demonic Acts By Most Malawians.Immoral Cant Take Us Somewhere But Nowhere.
    God Bless Malawi!!
    I Cry.

  24. Zikavuta dziwa nyimbo. Magetsi,madzi,njala etc. Let me stay longer maybe my stress wil go. We are eating pizza,burgers, bacon,lasgne,cottage pie and steaks. We are not coming back. Find another person to take over me. Since i was in position they are lot of problems. Bye bye musandivutitse kikikik

  25. “you cant have agirl friend without an approach” you first meet her,know each other,approach and live freely. how do you expect investors to come here without any formal meet?? UNGA has just ended recently and our Excellecy is now busy finding investors to come to our land,fighing best for our land #NO blame there

    • By now any investor is aware of our numerous challenges and can therefore not dare put his/her £, €, $, ¥ in our tattered, fragile economy. APM is at home now in America visiting all old friends including a meeting with Ken who is just a step into Dpp. All this on our taxes. Poor Malawi.

    • Am rily 3ng pity wit u Mr Ernest coz hw can we attract investors whil we hav serius problem of blackouts??? If Mr muthalika z a wise person he shld hav com 1st in Malawi 2 impriment wat he leant frm UNGA den invit investors.

    • “We dont have electricity but we have resources” We can maximise utilise these resources effectively for the best of the nation. Despiteof this plolonged on and off lights we all aware know that still we have investors investing but at avery low scale,thereby this journey must to be used wisely inorder to have them in large numbers,to share us other ideas and help us where we are lacking as adeveloping nation. #which is which here better between using this journey wisely and beneficiary to meet these required pesonnel on the same or to make another journey in future for the sake of meeting the same pesonnel but on another not this one?? which one is better?? will spend a lot?? and more helpful?? apart from meeting the required people we can also meet oir developmental parteners who can also help to deal and sort out with this electricity crisis which a52year man is failing to sort either to use wind power energy which it can work for we…
