Mutharika speaks against regionalism

32

President Peter Mutharika has hit at critics who accuse his government of sidelining the Northern Region Malawi when providing funding for projects.

Speaking on Tuesday when he was commissioning Chitipa Water Supply System, Malawi’s first citizen described people who branded Northern Region as “Dead North” as leaders without vision for the region saying the northern part of Malawi is supposed to have meaningful developments.

Mutharika said his government is not neglecting any region since it is evenly spreading various developments in all regions including the Northern Region.

The president mentioned the construction of new Mzuzu Airport at Lusangazi among others as projects aimed at developing the region.

On the newly opened water system, Mutharika said the facility will alleviate water challenges in the district.

“I am aware that people could go days without accessing potable water due to failure by Northern Region Water Board (NRWB) to provide water,” Mutharika said.

He then asked the residents of Chitipa to take care of the facility so that it should serve its purpose.
Mutharika also appealed to the Arab Bank for Economic Development in Africa (BADEA), which co-financed the project with Malawi government, to consider financing other proposed projects which have potential to uplift the welfare of Malawians.

  2. There is no black politics without regionalism, race or tribalism. Tell me if I am wrong. When the president is chosen or elected in his own political party to be the torch bearer and how come the ruling mate comes from the other region? What criterion or strategy is used to pick him or her? When Bingo picked Joyce in 2008 over Chimunthu, what reaction was with the entire nation? He backed his decision by saying Joyce is from Nkhata Bay but just married to southern region.
    Muluzi > Malewezi
    Bingo> Chilumpha
    Joyce > ???????
    Chakwera> Mia
    Etc. There is no way Malawians should be blinded especially northerners.

  7. Kkkkk really. When 6 July celebration is in Mzuzu the government doesn’t have money. But this year suddenly the money is available. Jeffrey told the nation that no president will come from northern and nothing was done. The list goes on. If that is true then prove it. Definition of stupidity is knowing the truth but still believing in lies. Same mistake but still using the same method. Having ministers from northern to blind us when you know deep down that nothing will be approved when proposals brought before your desk. Responding in a polite way zikapezeka ndalama. Why now? When did you realised that? Don’t stress we know the truth and the same truth is the worst part you don’t want to here.
