MCP wants to disturb Mutharika – State House

State House is accusing main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) of working out of frustration to disturb President Peter Mutharika from governing the nation.

Viola:  MCP should focus on resolving their leadership struggle

Viola: MCP should focus on resolving their leadership struggle

Mutharika’s press officer Gerald Viola said MCP just wants to disturb Mutharika for political reasons.

Viola made the comments in reaction to MCP demand to government to release the list of people who accompanied the President and the names of organisations that sponsored them within five days.

The Presidential spokesman described MCP’s demand as “laughable”, saying the party “is just doing this out of frustration. “

Viola noted that MCP always says DPP [Democratic Progressive Party] rigged the vote “hence no wonder they always criticise Mutharika’s government even when it does nothing wrong.”

The Presidential spokesman said instead of “disturbing Mutharika’s leadership”, MCP should solve what he called its internal leadership crisis “as three people are eying for the presidency.”

Viola said the five-day ultimatum is uncalled for and that Mutharika government is not shaken and will continue concentrating on important issues that can develop the country and its citizenry.

MCP criticised Mutharika regarding his two-week trip to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, USA.

But Malawi government argues that the trip was worthwhile and Mutharika attended close to 40 other engagements both on bilateral and multilateral platforms.

Prominent among his many engagements was hosting the High Level Event on Higher Education which is coincidentally a strategy for delivering the SDGs. As one of the six eminent and accomplished scholars who make up the Higher Education Champions, Mutharika reiterated the importance of higher education, and its potential to transform Malawi in particular and Africa in general.

The hectic schedule in New York involved long working days and nights of engaging key stakeholders in line with Malawi’s developmental goals.

From education, health, youth and women empowerment and agriculture to mining, rule of law and social programmes among other thematic areas, the President kept abreast his promise of improving the livelihoods of his citizens. He spoke to these stakeholders with full realization of home-grown solutions in a global context.

United Nations Secretary General, Ban Ki Moon, Kenya President Uhuru Kenyatta, President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda, Prime Minister Erna Solberg, of the Kingdom of Norway, His Excellency Gordon Brown, Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Shinzo Abe, Prime Minister of Japan, Tanzania President Jakaya Kikwete and many others are some heads of state who paid courtesy call to the Malawi leader to discuss crucial issues.

In addition Mutharika met top officials from Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) where they corporately discussed the progress of the Millennium Challenge Account – Malawi, an MCC-funded project that aims at facilitating economic growth through the energy sector.

In between the high level meetings, the President found time to sell Malawi as an investment destination through meetings with potential investors who already have seen the bankable projects compendium that was put together by the Malawi Trade Investment Centre (MITC).

Viola, do you see how the inner faces of people are looking at you? Were you born from human flesh? Did you grow up here in this country, were your parents so rich for you not to experience a little bit of hardship? Have you never been to the villages and noted how God’s creation is suffering? Is your mental circus right to have an average sense of human heart? Are you not aware how Bingu died and you think God can not do it again on this your idiot you call APM? Are you all not seeing the writtng… Read more »

I can see from the discussions here that some of the dpp die hards are trying to shield Peter. They use languages like ‘ tell the president the truth, don’t mislead the president, you tell the president what you think he wants to hear’ you tell the president only good things’ etc. This is all bullshit. Peter knew everything from start including the large entourage and the hiring of the big jet. He was never misled by anyone. His judgement is just too poor for a president. Please change Peter, my free advice. As for Viola outbursts against mcp, ooh… Read more »
