Malawi Government dismisses calls for Mutharika to resign

The Malawi Government has spit fire on opposition People’s Party (PP) after the party’s president Uladi Mussa called on President Peter Mutharika to step down for failing to solve many problems that this country is facing.

During a political rally last Sunday in Mchinji, Mussa mentioned problems such as lack of water and electricity in most parts of Malawi, theft of drugs in public hospitals, poverty, depreciation of the Kwacha, and low standards of living which he said are happening because of too much corruption in government.

But government spokesperson who is also minister of information Malison Ndau said Mussa cannot claim that government has failed yet during the PP regime the situation was much worse than this time.

“I am surprised to hear that People’s Party is making noise calling on Peter Mutharika to step down from office yet when they were privileged two years to rule this country after the death of late Bingu wa Mutharika, all they did was plunder all the money in office and used it in their interest,” said Ndau.

He added that all the problems this country is facing  were caused by the People’s Party because when DPP was going into office there was no enough money to run the country and it took DPP government to source money for things to be in place again.

At the rally, Mussa also told the gathering that if government fails to address the problems, Members of parliament from opposition parties will boycott the next Parliament meeting slated next month.

He then requested people in the district to vote for the PP candidate in the by-elections slated for November first this year.

  • The fact is that there is no investor who can come to malawi where there is no power and water. Even the so-called Zero-Aid budget cant work. Another BIG LIE is the Malata subsidy program. I hate all malawians proffesors. Big embarrassment to its citizens

  • yap! I think that can be the best solution for now, as am saying we are staying 18-20 hrs a day without electricity, look inflation, Interest rates how about the stock market? Even big business are crying hear this bakhresa milling company in Blantyre has ordered its workers to stay home on Monday’s because the machines cannot run on power. The company, whose backup generators consume almost 5 000 litres, may be forced to close down because its market is equally hit by the power cuts, look at this some welders have start working at awkward hours to cope with the blackouts. We are living in a hell. He must go, so that we can see something else..

    But why is it that Uladi Mussa always asking the President to step down for failure to solve peoples problems yet himself has failed Malawians many times starting from when he was Minister of Agriculture? Was it not him who was stealing fertilizer subsidy coupons meant for the less privileged and sold them in Kasungu. Is it not him who benefited from the Cashgate money with Joyce Banda? If I were Uladi Mussa I would shut up and say thank you DPP for not putting me behind bars!
