Government mouth piece, the Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) on Wednesday put as the major headline in its news bulletins that President Peter Mutharika is likely to win the 2019 presidential polls.
The state run broadcaster says according to a London based firm, the Economic Intelligence Unit, Mutharika will likely defeat Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera.
The tax payer funded radio attributed Mutharika winning to his “sound development programmes.”
Mutharika himself is on record saying he will win his second term by landslide and that he will be fit and well to campaign for a DPP presidential candidate in 2024 and 2029 elections.
Elections are away in three years time but the public broadcaster makes serious, unverified allegations of corruption against the opposition.
The government sponsored poll comes barely weeks after a reputable newspaper, The Sunday Times published its cabinet assessment which gave President Mutharika an average performance and his cabinet a fail grade.
Government disputed the assessment questioning the tools used to assess the cabinet and the skill of the journalists involved in the assessment.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
