Umodzi Party’s Professor John Chisi says President Peter Mutharika is an old professor.
He said this at the presidential debate at Bingu International Convention Centre (BICC).
Three presidential are battling it out at the debate. They are Chisi, Peter Kuwani of Mbakuwaku Movement for Development (MMD) and Hardwick Kaliya who is an independent candidate.
Chisi has in the past appeared on state owned Malawi Broadcasting Corporation praising the Mutharika administration so his jibe aimed at Mutharika came as a surprise.
Responding to a question from a fellow panellist on his association with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), Chisi said he is not a member of the DPP but since Malawians elected Mutharika as president in the 2014 elections he found it imperative to work with government.
He added that he will also work with any candidate who will win the May presidential elections
On his vision for Malawi, Chisi said he wants to develop the country saying what the country requires is good leadership.
“I have a vision to take Malawi ahead. We have a challenge with leadership. I am aware of the challenges Malawi has and I have answers. Wherever I have been, I have delivered. I am a performer,” he said.
