I will not resign, I am here until 2024 – Mutharika

364

Malawi President Peter Mutharika has defied calls for him to step down saying he will rule the country beyond 2019.

The president has challenged that he will defeat his opponents in the 2019 presidential elections.

Mutharika has been under pressure to resign since last year as critics pointed at his failure to end corruption and improve the country’s economy.

Mutharika rebuffs calls to step down.

At the all-inclusive Public Affairs Committee (PAC) conference, some delegates called for Mutharika’s suspension.

But responding to the calls in Phalombe on Tuesday, Mutharika said no one can remove the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) government from power before the end of its five-year term.

He challenged that even at the end of his current mandate in 2019, he will defeat his opponents at the polls.

“There are some people who want to remove this government, they are saying that I should step down before 2019 that can’t happen, ndizawanyenyanyenya (I will defeat them),” said Mutharika.

The president also accused his critics of ignoring the positive impact the DPP has made since retaining power in 2014.

“Others say that there is nothing which we have done, Perhaps they are blind that they can’t see that we are doing a number of works,” he said.

Mutharika was in Phalombe to lay a foundation stone at the construction site of the Phalombe District Hospital and to officially open Phalombe Teachers Training College (TTC).

Speaking on the hospital project, the Malawi leader asked Malawians to have patience since such projects take time to be completed.

    • thats your accessment mr Allan but that is not what most people think. no.where is he irresponsible ?. mind you the president is like a grandmaster. he cant be everywhere .change your mindset .dont expect what govt will do for you but what yourself will do to your govt.irresponsible for bringing back donor and international organizations confidence including IMF and world bank ? irresponsible for making sure that there financial stability including inflation ? .irresponsible for distributing resources both human and financial which has resulted in massive harvest ? and so numerous to mention .keep quiet if you dont know anything or maybe you are an Mcp brainwashed person full of hate.or you are in diaspora ?

  32. The probiem for malawi is that we dont have strong youth groups to demonstrate against this shit lets wake up and stand together this is the best time before time we want the youth

  39. To say the truth dzikoli silikuyenda bwino mpaka mufike 2024 bwana tikomeleniko mtima pelekani mpata kwa wina mwina atha kukwanisa kukoza zinazi

  40. Bigman is not lying he deserve to b there until that time,if some one dream of being apresdent then he must go and ask mizimu yakwao if it is true,even myself i dont see the proper candidate to compete with bigman,the rest zipwete zokha zokha.gud lucky u hav my vote.

  41. APM is right they are afraid of losing again. Their thinking is if he won whilst in opposition what more when he is in government. The truth of the matter is these people are not benefitting from DPP in terms of cash, positions, recognition, and many more. PP govt used to give them something when they cough but not with APM. So they are afraid of another five term of not being palm oiled whenever they criticize. They are not patient

  42. Well you beta keep some dollars in the spare room b4 you go down, coz people ain’t laughing to that crap.Just like Zimbo mgabe nkhakamila za Robert izi!!!! 2019 out!!!!

  43. Wamuyaya wamuyaya

  46. Mmmmmm I know that all of u are human beings!!!!!! This country ite ‘ll never charge if we are bussy of put another president ….. I know that nothing we ‘ll change abt it bcoz 10yrs is not more that he can make things to see wth ur eyes #nothing change malawi

  47. Mmmm bwampini dont swear ciz its pipo who put u in power and it will the same pipo ro take you down through their votes after all theirs no development under your leadership

  48. Lol….i was jst going through the comments. I think the small survey conducted by afribarometer its results might be true. Most citizens doesnt like you Mr Now President.

    • dziwani,go & check all news zokhudzana ndi mukuti president wakwanuyu,or itakhala nkhani yabwino bwino uzapange check ma comments as put it ka simple survey u’ll see that anthu uyu sitikumufuna ndipo ngati enawa akumatsutsa za afrobarometer zija mmmmmm,kaya..kkkkk

    • Always social media votes favours the opposition… Mind u more voters are not on social media so let us just wait and see 2019.. This kind of guessing is what is keeping others denying up to date that they lost 2014 elections..

    • But the world’s changed George Laisani. Almost every youth is on a certain social media eg FB. What do you think in each and every village of about 4000 people and out of it 2000 are youths and out of 2000, 700 are on social media? NB: atlst each and every young person is close to each other in terms of friendship. ***food for thoughts****

    • Yes! tamuuze munthuyu dziwani,kkkkk,vuto ndiloti anthu akuonadi ngati mmidzimu anthu salinso pa social media,& ma radio ali mbweee,ma canema osayamba,anthu akumadziwa chilungamo cheni cheni pano osati zongowanamiza pa ma state propagandawo..NB,afrobarometer survey yawo sapangiranso pa social media,they do go kumidzi mukunenako,kusiyana ndi ija apanga a dpp voice ya pa social media ija,ija mavota makadetii ija..

    • #George laisan,iwe wekha sukuona.masiku ano youth inazindikila and mwana amatha kudzudzula kholo akachiona cholakwika kwa iwo.ndipo amalolera kusiya kholo nkukakhale kwa azace.why akuziwa chabwino ndi choipa.ine wa dpp ndipo voti yanga ndikuilila mpakana pano.ndipo sindingalole kuvotelanso petala.wekha uzichita kuwona.mawa kholo likuuze ndikugulila pensulo osagula mpaka kalekale kumangonamiza.ndi zija mwana amangoyamba kukaba kapena kukapemphetsa.ndibwino kutsata chipani chomwe atayimile munthu wachinyamata.tatopa ndi nkhalamba zakuba izi.

  49. Its gonna be wasted votes again, you’re the first president to fail in his first term, you’re first president to close universities for a year, you’re first president to shield his corrupt minsters, you’re the first to fire teargas to the pupils, you’re first president to abduct and arrest opposition leader for critises your poor leadership, voting you is huge mistake

  50. Let’s ask God for long life first, Mr. President. 2024 is a long way to go and we cannot grantee that me, you and those will see the dawn of 2024. God may have other plans!

  51. In which country? Enough is enough…you are not our fist president, there were other’s before you and we are waiting someone to take the same seat through our VOTEs to do his part also we are NOW FADE! UP

  52. If you will not resign on your self you will face the music come 2019 cause we can’t keep on watching our country going down like that

  53. Hahahaha!!but true talking how can resign while its not MCP or PP who put you in dat hot sit,its not even Chakwera who put you so shame on them,its on votes who will remove APM

    • which vote will put him outside sanjinga? dreaming. from day one he has been campaigning.what do you think of malata subsidy. fertilizer subsidy. community colleges and food for work or cash transfer program. from nowhere you think Dpp power base will leave him.study ndale za pamalawi.the more you criticize or hate him the more you invigorate his support. watch and listen to his supporters.you think out of blue people of Dpp will for vote mcp.you re joking.
