One picture from the event shows Mutharika inspecting a toilet. The picture has been shared widely in Malawi and it has become a source mockery for the president.

A Zambian Facebook page posted the image on Monday and claimed that Mutharika was officially opening a toilet.

Many people commenting on the post believed Mutharika was indeed launching a toilet and mocked the Malawi leader saying he was doing the work of a councillor.

“African heads of states. You can’t even delegate over a toilet sure,” said one commenter.

“That’s what I like about Africa. Even a toilet head of state should come and officially open ah Africa,” chipped another.

While one commenter said: “When its campaign time, you opt to officiate anything. Now toilet. Lol”
Several commenters however condemned the page for posting inaccurate information and clarified that Mutharika was actually opening a community college.
