Mutharika  had fall at outside of Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe during a tree-planting ceremony last week,

The President appeared unhurt following the dramatic fall which attracted social media buzz after the photo was first published in Sunday Times newspaper and also posted on Nyasa Times.

Nyasa Times reported this week that although government officials appeared to be publicly taking the incident lightly, it was a serious security issue that would see those who were supposed to be closely monitoring his movement in trouble.

We also reported the transfer of Mwaliwa as the first casualty.

National Police spokesman Nicholas Gondwa has since confirmed Mwaliwa’s transfer but claimed his redeployment is “normal” should not be linked to the fall of the President.

“Transfers in police are traditional and normal,” Gondwa is quoted by Malawi News.

“Mwaliwa’s transfer is normal it has nothing to do with the President’s fall,” he added.

Mutharika’s fall continues to be a hot subject of social media debate, with some saying there was nothing newsworthy about it as everyone has fallen at one time or another and argued that it showed he was human.

Others however, poked fun of his fall and the incident as embarrassing.
