Mutharika jets in tomorrow: Malawians eager to see their president back

Peter Mutharika

Malawians are eagerly waiting to welcome back President Peter Mutharika tomorrow as government has confidently assured the public that he will land on Sunday afternoon.

Mutharika’s absence has triggered speculations that he was seeking medical attention in the United States of America but government earlier this week dismissed the reports saying Mutharika is in robust health.

Peter Mutharika
Mutharika; is said to be in good health and will return tomorrow

The prolonged stay of Mutharika in the USA after attending  United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has not only sparked headlines in local media’s but also in international media outlets such as News24, The Economist, BBC, and Foreign Policy.

“Africa’s leaders are not known for their youthful vigour. So it is not surprising that their absence from the public eye, especially in a Western country with an abundant supply of good hospitals, tends to spark lurid rumours of illness and even death,” wrote The Economist.

“Malawi’s president has certainly been doing his best impression of a missing person having landed in New York on September 16th, Peter Mutharika has not been heard from since the UN General Assembly, which ended on September 26th.

“Malawians have taken to Twitter with the hashtag #BringBackMutharika (a play on #BringBackOurGirls, which was used to rally support for Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram),” the publication added.

Malawi’s Information Minister assured Malawians that Mutharika is enjoying a good life in the USA where he is meeting unknown people for the benefit of the country.

Ndau told BBC that Malawians should stop spreading false stories about their head of the state and that come tomorrow they (Malawians) will see how energetic their president is.

But as a local proverb says, “Nkupha mawa sali patali”,  Malawians are patiently waiting for tomorrow in the afternoon to be briefed on what the UNGA that Mutharika went to attend will improve their lives.

Indeed Malawians have been missing their president for a month now and hopefully by 12 noon tomorrow the road to Kamuzu International Airport will be canopied by Malawians to warm- welcome their lovely head of state.

    1. Nde wat atumbuka aphedwe nanga ajawa olima fodya ali kwathu aja titani nawo? Stupit comment from stupit mind!!!!!!!!!

    2. Raymond Chimbala, its very unfortunate that Malawi has people like you. How can a country develop with that attitude? Do you think the only tribe worthy living is the Lomwes? Have you wondered why Lomwe presidents keeps on dying whilst on the position of the high office. If there is a useless tribe in Malawi, its the Lomwes and had it been Malawi was being led by another tribe, we could have been far developed that this. Even Muluzi was far much better than your idiots, if there are people who dont benefit from education then its you the Lomwes coz it does not differ whether one is educsted or not

  23. Malawi in shambles by a few and greedy people who have reaped this country. His absence or presence nothing beneficial to this failed state. The country seems have no leader who has a pasion to lift up the peoples lives. Cant care the lives of electorates, yet one can leave his office and stay away lavishly while back home people are feeling the pinch. Shame, and so sad!!!!

  26. Which is which. The same page said tomorow night. This very same page is saying afternoon. This same page saying no pple no media is allowed. Now we are confused and curious that we dont know exactly whats going on in the country.
