Chakwera, Chisi trash Mutharika’s address

Leaders of opposition political parties in the country say President Peter Mutharika failed to say anything new on the challenges affecting the country when he held a press briefing in Lilongwe.

The leaders, Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and John Chisi of Umodzi Party said they were not impressed with the statements Mutharika made during the briefing.

On his part, Chakwera said the Malawi leader’s statements were full of obvious stuff.

He also faulted Mutharika for failing to communicate to Malawians about his health suggesting that it was the real reason he overstayed in the United State of America.

“I think the problem is lacking a bill of Access to Information, once it can be implemented in Malawi, we couldn’t have problems like this.

“Several reports of Mutharika‘s health were made in such way that people were prevented from accessing information about his delay in US,” Chakwera said.

Speaking on the same issue, Chisi said he was not impressed with the speech arguing that there were no convincing points and the Malawi leader did not include hot issues of national interest.

Chisi further said as the father of the country, Mutharika was supposed to love everyone and not shouting at people over death speculations.

“I am not impressed with where he said all the blame should be put on him. The whole idea of having people in government is to share responsibility and as the president was away there was communication vacuum that is why people speculated.

“Government is not a one man show, it goes with working with other individuals but here the president is acting like we are in a dictatorship government,” said Chisi.

He further hit back at Mutharika for claiming that the opposition parties in the country do not speak, saying the Malawi leader is not willing to listen and has never called them even once for discussions.

Chisi also claimed that Mutharika’s statements just brought some confusion to Malawians and left them with unanswered questions.

    my name is Joy Bwalya and this is a testimony of how i got cure from HIV/AIDS, i have being suffering from hiv/aids for the past five years without the expectation of being cure, i was on ARV, despite the ARV i was not comfortable and there was nothing i could do because i knew and i was told by my doctor that there is no cure for HIV/AIDS, my dream of getting cured came to past, one faithfull morning my son came to me and told me about what he saw on net of how someone was cured through the help of dr Abumen herbal medicine, i was advice its not real that there is no cure but something keep telling me to contact him, of which i later did and the cure was sent to me with an instruction on how to use it which i did accordingly and went for a test, to my greatest suprice the result was negative i could not hold back the tears of joy running down my chick my doctor was shocked, i thank God that am finanly cured from hiv/aids, DR Abumen is an herbal specialist that can cure hiv/aids, you can contact him through his email which is (doctorabumen@gmail) com or whatsapp his mobile number is +2347085071418.

  • If that was the same old story like 4rm last time. Then what is a point of repeating it again and again when we dont see action. We dont rely on press conferences but action. This conference was a damage control about long stay in America and health issues. To me its just promising pple what they were promised again and again. The question now is when and how are we going to reach the those promises? In a democratic nation anyone has a right to speak out now than later when thing are worse and say i knew that was going to happen.

  • The whole president saying fwefwenfwe pagulu?mmmm this boy must b s**pid….

  • Kkkkkkkkk Malawi and African politics, the meaning of opposotion well understand even if its ryt. Will take you those years of Bakili Muluzi, Mcp was the same, Tembo was driving the mcp truck and it was all opposing. I dont think they dont see goodies out of wrong but still every thing got to be opposed, maintaining opposition side. I dont blame them either, they follow their great opposer… God say dont do it, he came and say mmmm He said this not that. So i dont blame Mr Chakwera, maintaining the opposition side, everything got to be opposed…. Politics, i chose to live my life fightng for my livity not here and there games, Tamachangamukani plz…

  • CHAKWERA AND CHISI ARE LOSERS ,ENTITLED TO TRASHING “REASON”. THEY BOTH HAVE NO PRESIDENTIAL OR LEADERSHIP QUALITIES . WHAT ELSE DO YOU EXPECT FROM THEIR MOUTH ? NEVER STOP MOURNERS FROM FULFILLING THEIR DESERVED OBLIGATION.

  • I totally agree with the opposition parties about Mtalika’s long stay in USA address speech to the nation.
    I didn’t heard more about how he marketed Malawi’s social and economical woes affecting Malawi and Malawians.
    I didn’t heard more on how Malawians were promised by Mr. Ndau, that he is in a good healthy, but making and dealing with Malawi development issues.
    I didn’t heard from Mthalika for himself on how he missed Malawians with his new development of Malawi issues in America.
    I didn’t heard moire from Mtalika on how he can make Malawians trust him again as a true, transparency leader who doesn’t not lie to them.
    His long absence really affected more Malawians minds that , where are we going with this leadership of DPP?
