President Peter Mutharika has warned People’s Land Organisation (PLO) leader Vincent Wandale against causing anarchy saying he is the only president in Malawi.
Mutharika said this Saturday during the 10th Mulhakho wa Alhomwe festival which was held at Chonde in Mulanje.
Wandale has been claiming that he is the president of the United States of Mulanje and Thyolo (MUST) which he said will secede from Malawi due to government’s failure to resolve concerns raised by people of the two districts.
Speaking at Chonde, Mutharika said he is the only president in the country and will not allow Wandale to cause anarchy in Malawi through the calls for secession.
“Don’t push me to the limit, I am the only president in this country no one else is. I have had talks with Wandale on the issue and he does not want to listen,” said Mutharika.
He added that his government is working hard to deal with the land issue in Mulanje and Thyolo.
The president also claimed that there is a businessman who is funding Wandale. He did not mention the businessman but promised to deal with Wandale and his sponsor.
“I am asking him to stop now because I will drop on him like a tonne of bricks,” said Mutharika.
On October 26 Wandale was expected to announce secession of the two districts under MUST but was stopped by police.
Unconfirmed reports indicate that Wandale has been arrested by police.
