DPP will win with a landslide – Mutharika

4

President Peter Mutharika has claimed that the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) will win the 2019 tripartite elections by a landslide.

Speaking at a political rally at Pirimiti Boys Primary School ground in Traditional Authority Mwambo in Zomba on Monday, Mutharika warned the main opposition Malawi Congress Party to expect a loss in the 2019 elections because there is no party that can defeat the DPP.

He added that the opposition parties in Malawi will cry again just as they did in 2014 when the DPP emerged victorious.

“We will crash them to pieces, we will stamp our feet on them,” said Mutharika.

The president then mentioned the reduction of inflation to single digit and the stability of the kwacha as some of the achievements during his first term.

He also talked about development projects under his administration such as roads and the rural electrification programme saying more projects will be carried out after the 2019 elections.

“We have lined up a number of development activities in the transport, education and health sectors as well as other social protection programmes,” Mutharika said.

He observed that the programmes are part of his government’s plan to improve the lives of Malawians.

Mutharika however condemned critics of the Decent and Affordable Housing Subsidy Programme saying they do not want poor people to own houses.

“Some critics have been saying we should stop these programmes. They are just being selfish. They themselves have two or more big houses and they don’t want a woman who lives in a shack to have just a small decent home. They are selfish. These programmes will continue under the DPP,” said Mutharika.

  1. Mutharika if you want to win you must make sure that your promises is come true in 2018 coz next year we vote. And we need to see cap macrier project in mangochi to start on this year. if you not do that wish means you will never get any vote in mangochi

  2. The reason why Professor dr Peter Mutharika is so convinced that he will win with landslide is because he has realised that voters aren’t interested in holding political leaders accountable (or any other person in high office for that matter). He has realised that Malawians are interested in and respond to rhetoric and empty promises. fortunately for him Malawi is still driven by politics of characters. They loved Kamuzu Banda and so did Muluzi, for their oratory skills and not so much for their ideologies and delivery track records. Today, Malawi is still stuck in the 70’s with its people unable to evolve. it is for this reason that they may just vote for Professor Dr Peter Wa Mutharika once again. This is why he is focusing on expensive rallies just to shout incoherently on what DPP has achieved over the years. Frankly, there’s nothing that DPP has achieved apart from bringing misery to its people. In fact all other political parties before it, have achieved nothing other than spending tax payers money on useless projects. Any one can spend taxpayers money……but it requires wise and morally inclined leader to spend smartly and that’s where Malawi is acutely lacking. I am encouraged though that Malawi is slowly waking up from its slumber and the youth are beginning to question their role in society. We may just get one of the biggest political upsets come May 2019.
