Chiumia says Mutharika remains in charge of Malawi: ‘Democratically elected’

President Peter Mutharika remains in charge of the affairs of the nation as Head of State, says Deputy Government Chief Whip , Grace Chiumia in a clear swipe at People’s Party (PP) leader in parliament Uladi Mussa who made slurs that government is failing to identify the leader of the nation.

Chiumia:  Malawi has one leader and that is Prof Peter Mutharika

Chiumia: Malawi has one leader and that is Prof Peter Mutharika

“Malawians democratically elected a President. The President is Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika. We do not have another president, he is the only President,” said Chiumia, who is also Minister of Youth and Sports.

She said Mutharika is “President for all” including the opposition, “so, you have to respect him.”

Mussa had asked: “Who is leading this government? We are failing to identify as to who, because Minister of Finance is doing one thing, the President is doing another. Who is leading this government?”

Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP )has always claimed Mutharika and his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) were elected on “fabricated results”.

Mutharika won with 36% of the vote, while former preacher and MCP’s president Lazarus Chakwera was in second place with 28%.

Recently, CSO released a 2014 Tripartite Election report entitled: “Election Situation Room: Analysis of the 2014 Tripartite Elections in Malawi” which describes the election as “Neither Fair nor Credible” and among other things calling for reforms in the country’s electoral processes and systems including enhancing the independence and technical capacity of the Malawi Election Commission (MEC) .

Malawi uses the first-past-the-post system where the candidate with the largest share of votes is declared winner of the presidential race.

    U DPP HATERS WHAT ARE U CRYING FOR? ZOPUSA BASI.

  15. Yosefe gambatula says:

    Who told you that Pitala was democratically elected by Malawians.Why was Mbendera then crying like chicken in the midst of night to have given us a raw deal?Why was Spy Dausi running up and down with boxes of matches burning ballot boxes to avoid vote recounting?Why did Pitala win 36% only for the whole of Malawi?Does the 36% the illiterate tea planting people of goliyati represent the whole Malawi?Iwe Chiuma usatikwiyitsepo apa.Ulandilapo vimwekuvimweku.

  16. Mlomwe wozindikira says:

    With a pea brained of people like Chiuma who is abusing the names of big brains like Obama of US,and those are the shallow answers you are likely to get from such a woman.Her head is full of water.Mzimayi wochititsa manyazi.Amafananirako ndi late Kamanya when she used to defend the self exiled woman looking for a sympathy from Malawians that she is a destitute with no where to live.

  17. Mulohmwe wa kwa Mendulo says:

    Agalu inu a DPP ndi galu nzanuyo Pitala Muthalika mumuuuze atipase Malipiro athu,tizikadya mmakomo mwanu?????? Pankholo panu

  18. Mulohmwe wa kwa Mendulo says:

    Chiumia go to hell wth your so calld Pitala Muthalika& his Mapwevupwevu govt,Stupid govt I hav Neva seen, Nonsense!!!!!!!

  19. CHEWA NATIONAL PARTY says:

    R u sleep with Ap mum or u r just stupid

  20. Dr.prof.nyada says:

    Zakusimna depending on how argue on your paper 1 plus 1 can indeed count 11. Philosophers have always always argued that 1 plus 1 is not always two. Get this into it greasy head zakusimba.

  21. Mbewa ndi nchira says:

    This Chiumia minister and her DPP still disputes that fact general elections were not credible. Credible elections do not need laywers to defend it.Fair or correct results can not be taken to court, for what?

    Courts were full of your injuctions, interferring with the counting of votes.

    Do not want worry, DPP will rule this country forever. What matters is whether DPP is performing or not.

  22. Someone is respected with what he or she does if you talk nonsense no one will respect you Miss or Mrs Chiumia no matter your status is, if one is president he needs to respect himself the people who elected him by doing what is a balance of all people, since he stole votes he should have been doing exceptionally well to buy respect unfortunately he is behaving like a farmer of chips or Bwampini how are we going to respect a fool

  23. zimkambani says:

    Law makers where are we with the 50 + 1 % vote legislation? Do not be distructed by the overwhelming events in our country. Focus on nation building and not nation destruction

  24. Rodgers Banda says:

    Mum Chiumia needs a bit of schooling
    Is it true dear mum that a democratically elected president can do what he wishes? Then what the use of MPs? All govt property should go through people’s decision. Dear mum don’t help to build dictator

  25. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Of course the president of this country is Peter Muntharika “The Dog”

    So what?

  26. zakusimba says:

    Musiyeni president atsogolele
    Talk is cheap. Oladi Mussa you can not even add 1+1 akuwuzani kuti ndi 11. Dzingo panga madrass omweo. Mbuli ngati iwe. Amaku USER CHIFUKWA CHOLALATA. Nyanga basi.

  27. Kokholiwa says:

    If you claim that you were voted democratically but what does democracy mean: Rule of the people by the people for the people. Think if you are following these guidlines

  28. mtumbuka1 says:

    Who voted for your stupid mutharika? Are you not even ashamed to call yourselves government? If it was other countries this country could have faced civil unrest thanks heaven Malawians still lives in cocoons that’s why mutharika and Goodall gondwe can trick the whole parliament and lie to 16 million people that he has suspended the sale of a bank only to discover that he sold I hope he will tell you what he will use the money for. I hope parliament will not be sitting phwii waiting for one kamlepo kalua to ask him where is the money.

  29. Northerners that are given ministerial position become boot lickers. They are the ones that sow seeds of confusion in the north. The north is always united but when five to six people are given power it becomes a problem. Grace and Goodall Gondwe are a problem now. Previously we had the Frank Mwenifumbo, Khumbo Kachali, Vuwa Kaunda, Mapopa Chipeta, Mayinga Mkandawire, Enock Chihana, etc.

  32. captain says:

    They even burnt the results to avoid vote recount. If they won they couldn’t hv done that

  33. Psm says:

    Your sentence could finish like: But the international observers,SADC officals, MEC officals, some Malawi CSOsand African Union officials described it as fair and credible despite some few problems exergerated by loosers and pro MCP & PP CSOs
