Muthalika says DPP will rule Malawi for ‘another five years’, predicts landslide victory in 2019 polls

President Peter Muthalika, who is also the leader of the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP),  has on Friday told Malawians that  his party would win 2019 election and rule Malawi  for another term  five years  term.

Early campaign: Mutharika on political whistle stop in Zomba

Muthalika made the remarks in the Eastern City of Zomba during a  political rally he held on Friday.

“Despite you didn’t gave me more Members of Parliament during the 2014 elections, I know that 2019 my party will take all the ten seats here in Zomba,” said Muthalika‚ to the applause of the assembled supporters.

He said 2019 elections will be a “landslide victory for the DPP.”

Said Mutharika: “Remember that DPP won with a landslide in 2009 and I am assuring you that this will happen again in 2019 whether someone want or not.”

Minister of Local government Kondwani Nankhumwa also dismissed crticis for accusing the President  for kickstarting campaign of the 2019 general elections.

Nankhumwa said Mutharika is not addressing political campaign rallies but development rallies.

During the rally Muthalika assured the Zomba residents that his government will bring different developmental projects such as a Shopping Mall.

He said it is DPP which changed the old capital Zomba into a city after it was declared municipal by the Malawi Congress Party (MCP).

DPP  edge  against opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) is attributed mainly to the demographic advantage that the Southern Region – the base of DPP and its alliance partner UDF – has over other regions.

Parties in powr always have significant election advantages due top State resources but in politics things can change so quickly.

MCP spokesperson Jessie Kabwila said there is low public confidence in the Mutharika-led government due to the economy and  that the ruling party was increasingly becoming clueless on how to govern.

“These (DPP) are inept and callous. They don’t care about Malawians. They are just deepening the politicisation of State resources at the expense of national development and unity,” said Kabwila.

She said DPP should not be having the fantasy of 2019 poll victory ,  saying the opposition has also be strategising on winning the Southern Region vote.

Mayi Kabwila, APM is the next president from 2019 for 5 years. Mark my words. Even if APM does not get a vote in the centre and north, which to me cannot happen, still APM will win by a landslide.

Ten years of another DPP regime under Peter Muthalika?A day dream or what? In the first place,he is illegally ruling the nation after bogus last elections which was brutally rigged by Muthalika and his mafia gangs.NDATA and CASHGATE SCANDLES will ever remain in the hearts of the beleaguered Malawians just as the MCP still remains in the status of dinasours for the atrocities and bloodletting of innocent Malawians.Worse still,Malawians regard MCP and DPP as most atrocious,corrupt,tribalistic and nepotistic hence,still people hate,suspicious and irreversible.It is Muthalika and his unlettered mobs who have damaged the Party’s reputation beyond repairs.Corruption has become legitimized… Read more »

If it remains as it is, then what will be the reason for changing government? I totally see nothing. In my view, even if it appears as if DPP has done nothing as of now, I think there is something that is being done which if we wait we will see the fruits. The good effects of the reforms that are happening now cannot be seen right now, there will be time but I believe the DPP has taken a right direction. The positive impact of the roads constructions that are taking place now cannot be enjoyed right now, there… Read more »

Unfortunately in life, you can spend years building something and yet destroy it in a matter of seconds and that is the status quo for DPP…They may have done somethings right but it’s their mistakes that speak volumes to the people of Malawi. It’s how you treat me as a person that will resonate loudly in my heart…DPP does not value the concerns of Malawians or seem to relate to the hardships Malawians are facing or suffering and whether they start to campaign now and try to spin the angle to paint a positive picture for the party to secure… Read more »

If he wins again then as Malawians we haven’t learnt anything from the past but I believe people are waking up and will not tolerate mistreatment from any head of state and that includes the current government.

Signs of #Dictatorship and #Rigging……underline whether someone want or not…the president meant whether with your vote or not….Whether the will of people wants it or not… Whether MEC wants it or not…DPP will win 2019 elections. God send us Moses the one you sent to Egypt when your people where in the brutal hands of Pharaoh.
