Mutharika tells Chilima, Chakwera to join DPP

6

President Peter Mutharika says Vice President Saulos Chilima and Leader of Opposition Lazarus Chakwera have no strategies for developing Malawi hence they should join the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Mutharika made the remarks in Nkhotakota on Monday where he addressed a rally on his way back to Lilongwe from Mzuzu.

Mutharika: let them join DPP

He said if re-elected as president, his government will continue carrying out development projects such as constructing community colleges and roads as well as implementation of the Malata-Cement Subsidy program.

Mutharika warned  that his political opponents, Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and Chilima of UTM, will stop such projects if one of them becomes president next year since they do not have strategies of their own.

“Malawi Congress Party does not have a single plan for developing Malawi. This new party (UTM) cannot also present a single plan,” said Mutharika.

He then invited the opposition politicians to join forces with the ruling DPP in order to develop the country.

“Since you (UTM and MCP) do not have any strategy, come to DPP so that you and me should work together to develop Malawi,” said Mutharika.

In his speech, Mutharika encouraged Malawians to respect each other saying respect is part of our cultural values. He added that Malawians cannot vote for a political candidate who insults political opponents.

During his rallies, UTM leader Chilima has been presenting development plans that will be implemented if he is elected as president in the 2019 elections. The plans include creation of one million jobs and construction of modern houses in townships.

At a rally on Sunday, Chakwera promised to dualise the M1 road from Nsanje to Chitipa and to turn various towns into cities.

  1. Very interesting Malawians, so if someone has a good vision for Malawi, the first thing that comes into your mind is negativity kuti sizingatheke Shame on you. Have you seen the bridge that has been constructed between Mozambique & South Africa? In the region of Kwazulu Natal? Dualise the road, sizingatheke just dual?????? Look at Rwanda just from 2000 when Kagame took over & after genocide they have what they call Spaghetti Roads ndiye inu muli busy kuti sizingatheke. Leaders no vision, subjects thinking in the same line as well no wonder after 54yrs of Independence people are being asked to bring a razor blade when coming to the hospital. The government can’t afford scalpels. Useless.

  2. At a rally on Sunday, Chakwera promised to dualise the M1 road from Nsanje to Chitipa and to turn various towns into cities.

    Chakwera thinks if he can’t lie, he can’t get the votes. To dualise the entire M1 road is not a joke. There are so many areas in Malawi that still need good roads. Why would a sensible politician talk about dualising M1 road instead of creating new ones to reach many areas that have no access roads,

  3. At a rally on Sunday, Chakwera promised to dualise the M1 road from Nsanje to Chitipa and to turn various towns into cities.

    Chakwera thinks if he can’t lie, he can’t get the votes. To dualise M1 road is not a joke. In any case, why spend resources to dualise M1 road when many parts of the country don’t have good roads? He is indeed useless.

  4. Indeed, if vice president (SKC) failed to elect a single structure at his home to benefit his relatives during the 4 years he was in his office, how should this country believe him that he will fulfill his promises? SKC stop this hidden treasure hunting and follow your leader, the HONOURABLE PROFESSOR APM. Even this day you (Vice President) can not still tell Malawians what objectives have been implemented and to what extent in the office you are sitting; but what the only thing we appreciate is that the taxes of poor Malawians have transformed you in one way or another.
    In this struggle for power, Mr President (HONOURABLE PROFESSOR APM) do not fight the people (especially SKC, Chakwera) who are “blind” and too weak to help you develop this country and transform the many poor Malawians. Secondly, Mr President (PROF APM) our Leader DO A THOROUGH CONSULTATION to choose your productive running because Malawians do not want regrets.
