Mutharika warns Chilima over chartered plane


…Says he knows what was inside

President Peter Mutharika says he knows what was in the plane which UTM presidential candidate Saulos Chilima used on Friday.

Chilima used the chartered plane to travel from Mzuzu to Likoma Island where he held a campaign rally.

Speaking at Njamba Park in Blantyre this afternoon, Mutharika suggested that the plane was carrying suspicious materials and persons.

The plane Chilima used

“I know a plane entered Malawi yesterday without authorities’ knowledge and travelled from Likoma to Lilongwe. I know what happened. I am warning those who have brought the plane, I know who was in that plane and what was in that plane.

“I want to warn you, don’t try your luck because you will regret. Let Malawians vote freely. We should conduct elections freely without anyone rigging the elections,” he said.

Mutharika also claimed that Malawi Congress Party (MCP) presidential candidate Lazarus Chakwera and rights activist Timothy Mtambo have plans to disrupt his government.

He warned them that he is still president of Malawi despite dissolving his cabinet and he will go after the two if they try to carry out their plans.

Malawians will vote for president, Members of Parliament and councillors in the tripartite elections on Tuesday.

Mutharika who is seeking re-election faces strong competition from Chakwera and Chilima.

During the rally, Mutharika was confident he will emerge victorious. He said in the next five years he will continue implementing development projects such as technical colleges, roads, and stadiums with a bigger aim of alleviating poverty in the country.



  1. I wonder how come a plane came in a countly and use malawi airplaces and wethout authorities. What is he think malawians are??. Or our nation still have no right to have a plane. Dzuka Malawi

  2. “A polofesa” tsopano. So you want to tell us the plane entered and used Malawian airspace without authorization? ? ? ?

  3. He is hallucinating. So he thinks Malawians have no right to charter a plane? You need to go old man,you have no support.

  4. Peter is scared of everything around him, including his own shadow and is also trying his best to find reason to arrest Chilima. Leave Chilima alone please otherwise you will bring unrest in the country. In fact Chilima went by road from Mzuzu. He had a rally in Kasungu today, Saturday. Mukomoka nazo izi madala. What will happen when you learn about your losing in the elections? Poor old man, people surrounding you are just using you and feeding you with false ‘intelligence’. Soon you will be deserted and on your own. Bye bye Peter.

  5. Peter is suspicious of everything around him, including his own shadow. What will happen when he is whipped in the elections coming Tuesday? He is desperately trying to find a reason to arrest Chilima. The old man is als being fed with incorrect information by his outsmart
