I will turn Malawi into Germany – Mutharika

Malawi president, Arthur Peter Mutharika, has asked Malawians to give him five more years to develop the country to the level of Germany.

Speaking at Mgona ground in Lilongwe on Sunday, Mutharika claimed that if given another five year term to rule the country, Malawi – one of the poorest countries in the world – will be like German which is one of the world’s largest economies.

“Give me five years and I will bring England or Germany to Malawi. Malawi will be like England or Germany in five years,” Mutharika said.

The Malawi leader also faulted the opposition for “pulling him down” on developmental plans.

He said he focuses on development and not politics as others do.

“I am not a politician, those who are politicians are the ones in opposition, I do focus on development,” Mutharika said.

The president made several whistle stops in Lilongwe where he addressed followers of his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

At Area 23, Mutharika promised that temporary interns recruited in various Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) will be offered an opportunity for permanent recruitment in the public service.



  1. It can not work Peter. It needs a well experienced educated lady like Angela Merkel and at first a school system free for everybody. But I like your dream.

  2. Mmm uncomment anuwyo mmm nsanje basi musiyeni mwana Peter apamulire pangani zomwezo a peter

  3. Mmm uncomment anuwo mmm nsanje basi musiyeni mwana Peter apamulire

  4. Politics is a dirty game, nkutheka kutaya nkhwali powona nkhanga mawanga. Nkosatheka kuti chilichonse chikhale mchimake for just only 5yrs. Aliyense amene mutamusankheyo alindi zofowoka zake. Nkanadziwa sapindula anzanu ku Zimbabwe pano akulura. Zimaphweka pakakhala nzako pachiwongolero…..

  5. Dreams that can never COME true, We’ve been with Mr Peter Mutharika for more than 5 years didn’t change Malawi to Zambia, now promising to changeMalawi to Germany, those are lies without shame.

  6. I’ve never seen a president like this guy…a 1 more term while he did nothing for 5 years

  7. I watched from MBC TV: no one has attracted crowds as he has done. It looks like his victory is becoming a foregone conclusion

  8. Thanks for the offer but we do not want Malawi to be like Germany or England, therefore we will not give another five years.
    if Malawi national team went down fifa ranking or played poorly for the past 5 years under the same coach, the current coach must get fired regardless of him saying if we give him 5 years the team will be like Germany or England , we will say no, just go.
