Just in: Malawi President Mutharika returns home this Sunday

Peter Mutharika- UN

Peter Mutharika: ‘Lost but found’.

Malawi President Peter Mutharika returns home this Sunday, a revelation that has come in the wake of trending speculations that he had fallen into coma.

A press statement from the State House as signed by State House Press Secretary Mgeme Kalilani the Malawi leader had after attending the 71st United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) and also attended to various government businesses.

This had delayed his stay in the US, and reports had been going rife that he had died.

”Mutharika will on Sunday 16th October 2016 return to Malawi from the United States of America (USA)” the statement reads in part.

The president left Lilongwe for New York on September 13 2016.

On Monday Government said it will arrest anyone spreading reports that Mutharika is ‘dead’, saying the stories are bringing fear and panic among Malawians.

Meanwhile on Twitter the hashtag #BringBackMutharika has been trending as people have been calling on the Malawi leader to return home.

Reacting to reports of Mutharika’s return, social commentator and journalist Idriss Ali Nassah said the Malawi leader owes Malawians an explanation for his extended stay in America. “Now to explain what he has been doing all along, blowing poor people’s money in America,” tweeted Nassah.

Government had also announced last week that Mutharika was to return home over last weekend, a promise that did not come to pass. This forced people to run a social media campaign in demanding the exact whereabouts of Mr. Mutharika.

 

The hashtag was picked up by international media.

Others started making jokes over Mutharika’s mysterious disappearance.

  • Hello friends my name is Mathew Maketho I was one of those millions of people around the world suffering from HIV/AIDS and and i was healed through the help of DR Abumen I was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS in 2010, I had no hope and felt useless. All these negative feelings quickly suppressed my body immune system and my body started to deteriorate quickly with physical signs of rapid weight loss, my story began to change for good when i met DR Abumen through a woman’s testimony, he sent me an herbal medicine which i took for some days, after taking the medicine according to doctor’s instruction I went to the hospital to get my blood tested for HIV/AIDS. The doctors were amazed when my first blood test result came back negative. They asked me to go back again for another test, which I did and the result came back negative. The doctors could not believe still,To cut the story short, “DR ABUMEN HERBAL MEDICINE HEALED ME COMPLETELY WITHOUT A TRACE OF THE DEADLY HIV/AIDS VIRUS IN MY BLOOD” am so happy, am sharing this to the world to save some lives, believe me there is a cure, you can contact DR Abumen on his email address doctorabumen@gmail.com and you can also call or whatsapp his number which is via +2347085071418.

  • I really feel bad to be part of a this nation called Malawi. A nation full of illiterate citizens. citizens who do not do anything for their nation but expecting the nation to feed, educate, treat, pay, etc for free. The citizenry that does not forget a polling day, let alone accepting presidential results! citizens who do not wish well its president, but ulululating on death rumor of the death of their president but frowning and gnashing teeth when hearing the perfect health of their own president. the citizens who cherish corrupt leaders, poor planning leaders, vocal leaders etc. a citizenry fond of tax evasion, smugglers. citizens who sabotage, pirate, conspire,backbite etc. when shall the education system bring a meaning to these fellow malawians? welcome back Mr president.

    • Meanwhile what are you doing so differently and progressive?

    • Cosby, I have done my part and am doing it even now but details cannot be put on this forum. with all respect to you sir.

    • I am in agreement with the comment

    • So far iz there any benefit that govt can get frm what u r doin?

    • Likewise Gilbert, was just trying to see if you’re not just another Malawian who is a specialist at pointing out our problems but offering no practical resolutions with their own work. With all due respect.

    • Well spoken sir, big up Gilbert Goliath-phiri

    • we love our elders +our country thats y we pay tax es kuti azisangalala,,

    • Citizens full of negative attitudes for there President! We will never prosper even if we can change this regime still others will to support him accordingly! We gonna keepon insulting our President but nihil we gonna gain!

    • Mr Ephraim Banda, I said details of what am doing cannot be given here. however, I can tell you that as am speaking am having some people on my monthly wage bill for my businesses. these people are employed by my business not me! I just own the business hence creating a service and providing employment as well as giving tax (paye and income tax) to the government!

    • Mr Nthala, which taxes are you referring to? you mean VAT? Vat is a consumption tax which depends on availability of disposable money! if a country depends on vat then it is dead! we need to have income taxes from the profits realized from production industries (which create goods and services) for export hence creating wealth for a nation! PAYE is another poor tax which just work as a revolving fund especially in malawi in which the highest employer is the government! which taxes do you expect that can give you quality free education, free health care, subsidized water, subsidized electricity, subsidized farm inputs etc?

    • Etiiii amwenee,,,
      congratulations for such a wonderful comment blaz,,
      Long life is your portions.
      Ndakunyadilani

    • Mr Gift, thank you very much

    • What a compliment ! I’m inspired with your arguments guys, keep it going I might lean a thing or two from your compliments. #with all due respect.

    • could you kindly please describe yourself cos it seems as if you have alot to describe about real Malawian characteres

    • Mr Kokoriko, am a true malawian and I shall never cease to be one. the only thing we know is to praise our third enemy (envy) mentioned in our nation anthem.

    • Mr goliath wot u v said z clearly the fact bt the problem z how cn 1 survive f the govt z nt gvn gud services to ts ppo.or inuyo u r saing u gat a company how cn u go thru ngat boma silikukondan owez kukutchajan zimisonkho zitalzital.anthu2 sakadalongolora f govt official wre open teln ppo whre our father is ,why spending mo tym thre,why working thre and yet we gat lots of stuff to be solved by him.thank u mr goliath

    • Kkkkkk following! kazifusani mafusowo bwana Gilbert akuyankhani.

    • Peter Muthalika is not presdent is just symbol

    • Welcome back baba Mutharika we love you Mr President.

    • Mr Ephraim Banda, when we say government we mean citizens (you and me inclusive). government does not make money. citizens make money. if we the citizens are not producing where do you think the executive shall get the money? first of all we as citizens should always know that any decision I make (being it good or bad) is for us! if for example, I choose to buy things out of malawi then am taking my tax to the other country which doesn’t give me education or health care! the government is not a business entity but a resource mobilize and allocate entity for the citizenry hence depending on production of its citizens. we work, government collects and allocate.

    • Mr Fishani, I hope you need to meet your lawyer on that comment. he may advise you to withdraw this statement since it sounds treasonous. it befits illiterate dudes so if you are one of them, therefore, you don’t fit in this argument we have here. I pray to you with all due respect

    • Mr Phiri much has been said already but am suprised to see where our nation is heading to..Imagine the speculated issue is true would the nation of malawi hv medicine in hospitals,power all day,extinction of hunger,water flowing in our taps throughout the year,our budget trippled etc.Do you think this can happen just overnight?If i may ask why do feel good in writting issues that wont bring you food on your table.why do we seem to hv forgotten our role as citizens of malawi.why do we support and promote evil in our country..much we are enjoying the freedom of speach but i suggest its too much to wish someone dead i dont think that can change anything.How would one feels when the news that he or she has been dead,how would relatives feel.children etc.Remember our president is a human being just like you and me sometimes he also feel bad when such speculations are all over.and i think this is wrong.If we want our nation to be blessed just like other country lets take envy away from us and hv time to pray for the nation otherwise we may spend years and years on the same point coz this is not what God asked us to do as his children.

    • Mr Lomoliwa, you are very right! malawi is not poor and has never been and shall never be! when a president suggests best way of running the government affairs you find some cizitens sabotaging! imagine the issue of paying for primary education and raising secondary school fees (to me) was a best move! today we say universal free primary education but schools are demanding 1000/term as development fee and parents are paying! this fee could have been formalized and being used by the government. however, you heard a certain MP standing and quashed it while his children are learning in first world schools running away from poorest education in public schools! on power do you remember that malawi was denied a grant to improve power because Bingu denied to arrest albashir? even the efforts we make as malawians are failed by fellow malawians in political positions (opposition) and civil societies just to fulfill their greedy advances.

    • Welcome my president MAY THE GUD LORD BE WITH U ALWAYS

    • Ok mukuwopa kumangidwa eti

    • Mr Timothy, an arrest is sweet if you stand for the truth. Cowards are never truthful but pretend as not knowing the truth. we are just putting facts together. If these facts sum up to an arrest then let it be but if these facts are to your contrary opinion then reserve your convictions sir.

    • Mr Phiri i understand yo side of the story, but have u done survey on another side as well. Ok what is the duty of the citizen. And what is the duty of the goverment. Does the citizens know their rights very well. Lets not sweep dusty under the carpet. As citizens they work hand in hand with goverment. Lack of transparency is also a turma in this country. The poor get poorer and the rich get richer. Have u seen any goverment offical children going to goverment school? Why? A goverment school 4rm standard 1 to 8 with 3 goverment teachers. What do u call that? They cant even drink water 4rm the water board but rather buy imported still water. Why? As far as i know. Pple in Malawi are not lazy than other countries, but the goverment dont embrace them. I have travel the world 4rm Africa to Western countries. The rights of poor Malawians are not respected. The goverment of Democracy must embrace right to education,right to justice,freedom of speech etc. All this only favours u and me who have fat bank account. If i can ask u right now. U find that yo kids go to a private sch. Its easy to talk but to act. I am not saying pple must rely on hand out. But the goverment is their duty to meet them half way. How can u build an expensive stadium to praise someone’s name while teachers are not paid? For me i dont have a problem i have work myself up. but i feel for pple 4rm the ground. On campaign they promise the world but once they are in its just excuses. Ukakwera pamsana panjovu usati pansi palibe mame. If someone raise a better point than them. Instead of cooperating they are busy planting and manufacturing a criminal case to block his voice. Action speaks louder than words.

    • ua comnent was fyn at first kma chakumapetoko muzaganizenso kumene timadikila boma kut litipangirezambili koz u and i all collectly we invest thru unwilling to pay tax

    • Mr Mkandawire, thank you for your comment. I have a question for you. much as you have said you have travelled, may you answer these simple helpfu questions 1. in the countries you traveled (which are richer than us) did you find universal free education and free health care? 2. In those countries you visited did you check the criminality of tax evasion? 3. in those countries did you observe their strongest tax ie is it VAT or PAYE or income tax? 4. Today and kamuzu day when was malawi economy healthier (hint: kamuzus era was better) but why primary education was paid for? 5. did you study the history of all those countries you have admired here on their progress hence did they graduate to this status through our present philosophy of consumption? 6. If. you compare the quality of education in those countries with ours is the gap even comparable? 7. Haven’t you sacrificed at some point to reach where you are today? just to ask a few.

    • Madaliso, I cannot get you precisely. However, on tax it has not to be investing unwillingly. our country depends much on consumption based taxes (VAT and PAYE) not production (profit based) taxes like income tax which is very vital for the nation. This means the more industries produce the more these industries make profits and the higher the taxes.

    • Kodi tikanike kufunsa kuti where is our president? After all ndalama zomwe akuwononga kumenekozo ndi misokho ya amalawife nde musatitseke pakamwa mwamva ndi zomwe anapitira zinatha kalekale. Ndipo ur saying malawians dont do anything r u sure we dont do anything or your just talking. Ndalama zomwe wapitira kumeneko wazitenga kuti if we dont do anything?

    • aiso boma osalikila kumbuyo apa,myself can c tht there z sense of undstandng between us kma mosapta patali wth the case KALIPOLALIPO cz an2fe tkulumidwa bas nkumatiuzirapo talumidwapo!

    • Now i knw y ur talking that way u dont even stay in malawi munathawa chani ngati mumalikonda dziko lanu. And how many yrs hv u been in SA? What hv u done for ur country so far?

    • I was once inspired by late bingu’s speech he said malawians are yet to know the meaning of politics and what it meant to be politician.most pple easpecially malawians think politics is just a way of making someone falling down just like what happen in foot ball.Back to a discussion i see no issue kuti ngakhale kuti munthuyo satisangalasa then he or she amfe,that means we do not love each other.Remember also that whatever comes from our mouth can bring either blessings or problems.such examples are these..prefering someone to die and feel better without even hving conciouse on those speeches.Its realy sad and how i wish that spirit is not in our country.

    • Look mr Phiri we cant compare America with Malawi. Basically we need to use what we have in wisely way. If u look those country pay tax,rates,vat which is used to improve infrustracture. Not to be used to campaign politically. We have lot of donors pumping billion time to time. But u wil never hear the breakdown of those funds. For example we have less than 20million pple in Malawi. Few month ago the USAID donated almost 146million US $. So if u divide that money. How much each person will get or use. The problem is not paying tax but how the tax and donations is being used. And as a matter of fact, Malawians are being used as a begging tool 4rm donors. Even we can double tax it will varnish like a neddle. I am quiet convienced that if that small amount we have if we can use it wisely by investing in long term projects like education, agriculture etc we can put Malawi on the next level. The big problem is Mismanagement, nepotism, corruption and dictatorship. Right now the president overstayed the trip. How can u convience investors if in Malawi we have lack of electricity,skills and mode of transport. They is not transparency in this currenty goverment. Ok if the goverment say they dont have funds, so who have funds. Where are they going to get those funds. Lets agree that the funds are misused here. Donor have lost faith and pple have also lost faith as well

    • Mr Mkandawire thanx alot mukutiimilira mu debate ino kmaso fuso lomw ndlakut kd kukadakhla kt gvnt z doing gud that an2 sakuva kuwawa akadayankhula?z going 2thoz hu r backing up ths ukindly gvnt&iknw 4sure most of us r backing the gvnt bcz ululu omwe amalawi ambri akuva enawa sakuva nao nang c thy r livng gud lyf&thy r the 1nz filng thr stomacs wth our monies aimlesly wth the gvnt,xo osamattseka pakamwa tkamayankhla pmwe zkulakwka,BIG UP MR MKANDAWIRE!

    • @ Wilson Bomba i know how it pains to go bed empty stomach while some is telling u to work hard. If u look the ones who are supporting this whole thing are benefiting funds indviuals. While i am embracing equal and everyone must benefit. Ana ambiri mumidzi alephela sukulu kamba kamuchitidwe yoipa ngati uwu. Their kids are at Wits, Oxford(USA) thats why they dont care. Ine ngati kholo i wil never buy a newspaper while at home my wife dont have salt and soda to cook okra(terere). Everytime they announce bugdet and nothing is put into action. What do they budget. How can u put stadium at first priorite while civil servant is not sure when he wil get his salary. They want to impress the world with something that we cant afford at the expense of poor citizen basic right. Makolo mumidzi akugwira chitukuko for free(kuomba njerwa,mchenga,myila etc. NGO akuthandiza by providing cement,metal sheets etc. But when come to goverment to provide teachers, DOLOLO. And blame pple that they want handout. Anthu alima mbewu zawo kuti muwapezele msika wabwino DOLOLO. Time for campaign idatha kale. Hope this coming elections mudzawalonjeza milato ndimsinje yomwe. Yes Dr Kamuzu, Dr Muluzi, Late Bingu they had some weakness at other things, but this is just a disaster. Munthu kuyankhulani bwino next day amangidwe amaneyo with treason charges. And yet someone is saying we dont appriciate.

    • Which presidents are you talking about ? These Fools ?? Shame !!!

    • Amalawi ndi anthu osakonzeka man,kuwapatsa fertilizer wa ulele kapena ochipa kuti alime akhale ndi chakudya chokwanira akugulitsa fertilizer njala ikayamba kuwafinya adzitukwana boma.mmmm mankhwala boma likuononga ndalama kuitanitsa kunja mankhwala anthu ena akuwaba kukagulitsa ku Mozambique,ku Zambia ndi ma private clinics mankhwala asowa nzipatalamu aziti boma ndilolephera.Lero akufuna kuti President amwalire akuwona ngati alowa wina ndiye ziyamba kuyenda,boma likugwira ntchito usiku ndi usana kuti zinthu zikhale bwino koma ena kuchita sabotage chitukuko cha boma ndi ma plan a boma kuti boma lowoneke lolephera.Amalawi ndi anthu opandadi mapanti ndakhulupira ndithu ndipo malawi ndiyo kaikitsa ngati ingadzatukuke.Welcome back Mr President I Love you so much,God bless you with more years to Rule us in JESUS Name..Amen

    • Big shout to u mr #mkandawile. U represent us

    • Hold it there @ Sherperd that is the problem yes. But if Malawi can put rules and laws on food security that wil never happen. Eg if they introduce loan to fertilizers and seeds to those who are willing then paid back after harvesting time with an agreement. I am sure all the maize wil be in Admarc. But the problem is the market price which discourage farmers. The farmers wil have their Union which wil discuss price with Admarc. Not Admarc demanding how to buy our maize.

  • welcome Our president

  • Was he on leave or goverment trip. And the question still remain, why taking so long? Hope all the answer wil be revealed by sunday. Otherwise finally.

  • Ok. Muwuzeni kut kuno anamuphatu anthu alimoyo

  • Nice journey mr pres….
