Mutharika behaving like ‘dictator’ – Church and Society

President Peter Mutharika has been accused by governance of CCAP Livingstonia Synod, Church and Society, of acting like a dictator similar to the style of his late brother leader, Bingu wa Mutharika.

Mutharika: Accused to behaving like a dictator

Mutharika: Accused to behaving like a dictator and advised to watch his tongue and control his emtoions

Executive director of Church and Society, Moses Mkandawire, told a news conference in Mzuzu that Mutharika is morphing into the intolerant autocrat.

He accused Mutharika of his “emotional and hostile approach” during a news conference he held last week, saying his outburst and table banging were exhibiting that he is increasingly applying autocratic governing style.

Mkandawire also faulted President Mutharika for his foul-mouthing and lack of decorum as Head of State in some of the words he used when he addressed journalist in live broadcast on October 8 while responding to growing criticism of his alleged bloated delegation to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) amid a crumbling economy.

He picked Mutharika choice of words like “nonsense” and then “the banging of the table should not come from a leader.”

Mkandawire accused government of being insensitive towards the suffering of Malawians, saying people are dying of hunger and lack of drugs.

“Such deaths could be avoided if government started caring and looked into solutions to the problems,” he said.

Mkandawire said the President showed similar style of his late brother, Bingu of being a dictator, asking him “to draw lessons from Bingu’s scenario.”

Late Bingu wa Mutharika’s eccentric intolerance went too far forcing mass action.

Church and Society is warning Mutharika not to be posturing himself to lead Malawi to an era of absolute dictatorship but rediscover his own diplomatic manner.

He said Mutharika must have reflected on his approach at the news conference and “regretted it.”

“Use of words such as nonsense or stupid are very unfortunate and they should not come from a leader,” said Mkandawire.

Mkandawire said Mutharika should not be allergic to transparency and accountability, saying Malawians have constitutional rights to demand the same from their elected leader.

“It is not good to shout at people who are suffering. A leader should be with the people who are suffering,” said Mkandawire who is also leader of 16 key civil society organisations under the Civic and Political Space Platform (CPSP) .

Mkandawire advised President Mutharika to watch his tongue and control his emotions when addressing issues being raised by Malawians.

He said the country does not want to experience another July 20 2011 scenario when there are viable ways of addressing issues.

Presidential spokesman Gerald Viola said Church and Society “has a right to observe the President’s leadership.”

Viola however dismissed the dictator tag, saying Mutharika is a democrat and progressive leader.

    if you know maths..calculate their tricks…you will not manage them come 2019.instead of rebuilding Your strength to face them in 2019 ,you are busy with useless accusation..kupepera amalawi.Livingstonia synod..you failed to settle an argument with Nkhoma synod and instead you LIVINGSTONIA thought of sharing akhristu.WHERE IS THE LOVE…IF YOU CAN PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH..we will get peace and love,.

    Malawi cannit develop with such people as Violas who instead of taking criticisms positively we intend to cook them to be atleast in favour of the one we are representing. Are you afraid of losing your position, sir? thats the problem of being poor both in mind and financially, youre good example of worst people that Malawi dont need in such positions for you are the ones destroying the leaders in the name of safeguarding your positions instead of telling the person we are representing the truth…brutes you are there jst ti such them money so that the time he will be going aftr losing mudzakhale muli pabwino such is not good character of responsible citizen, Mr Viola critics made by people are not for you you are not a sieve to remove some message going to the Malawis leader you are their to give him what people who employ your boss are saying. He is your boss by he is our employer ti make myself clear. thanx God bless Malawi

    some litle gymmies are backing peter just to display there cawardness. There is litle development large some of money has been drained. many of you’re blaming or swearing the tumbas for what? open your eyes coros, some of your family are and dying in hospitals yet you’re duncing to his tnu really? We’re looking for political solution not regionalism of hatred nooooooh. I think we should start buy introducing knew system where every region should only be represented by only 1million voters. Now this will bring us leadership not rubbish like peter his region is overpopulated.

    making criticism against govt all dioceses come together with umbrella called episcopal conference of Malawi not the way you are doing. Where’s Blantyre and Nkhoma synods? Kodi atumbuka a Livingstonia ufiti chiyani? Everytime you bring cconfusions why? If you want politics just join with your brand Livingstonia synod party. You even enter Nkhoma synod saying you are following your members. You’re tiresome people in Malawi.

    During these days, I never red any ethnic-based attacks on commentators like Kabwila, Kwataiine , Khanje etc.

  32. The Only Democrat Left says:

    Mutharika is a tin-pot DICTATOR who is also a RIGGER of elections and who is also a CORRUPT thief.
    Malawians know very well that Mutharika is incapable of resolving Malawi’s immense economic problems caused by Mutharika himself, his good for nothing dead brother Bingu and the Indian business community stealing billions from our economy.
    Muthjarika should know that the men in the Barracks are our brothers and feel our pain and suffering.
    MCP now you have a chance of proving to Malawians that MCP is a government in waiting- so oppose Mutharika in parliament not in rallies held in villages and towns. Bring Mutharika’s government to a stand still, IMPEACH the dictator

  37. True Malawian says:

    #23 I wanted to agree with you but alas your bias forbids me. For instance, it’s not true that the UDF did nothing in the North here’s a sample list:
    (i) The high court in Mzuzu
    (ii) Turning Mzuzu TTC into a university, a thing which most people (especially from the North) vehemently doubted Muluzi (UDF) and branded him a failure.
    (iii) Creating a conducive environment for doing business in the country (as a whole) and northern region in particular.
    (iv) The tarmac road from Chiweta to Karonga
    (v) The Luwinga industrial site.
    (vii) Mzuzu Central Hospital (when in the past all the referrals were made to either KCH or QECH)
    (viii) The Auction Floors.
    (ix) Southern Bottlers;

    The list is endless but in the heat of the debate these are some of the developments accomplished by UDF in the North and it’s wrong to say there is nothing that the UDF Govt did there. Remove all the negativities about a particular party or individual and start thinking like a Malawian. United we stand divided we fall!!!!!!!

  38. Ulosi wa dzulo says:

    I shall vote for Peter once again in 2019 God willing for being the quiet president not responding to silly, fault finding question by the Pharisees .

    I shall vote for Zodiak as the best radio that does NOT know financial analysis ie chartering plane to Dubai. Correctly estimated 6hrs from Malawi to Dubai, Correctly estimated $10,000 per hour. FAILED TO MULTPLY $10,000 x 6hours x Mk600 exchange rate totaling to Mk36,000,000 one way. In their multiplication they GOT Mk150,000,000 one way and two way Mk150,000,000

    I shall vote for Mbwenubwenus in annual events for realizing that their kindred Goodal Gondwe has miserably failed the economy as minister of Finance and pressurizing Government to fire him and replace him.

    I shall vote for Chakwera in the annual events for being the only self claimed man of God who abandoned his duty post at the pulpit and hide in the bush of politics for Money.

  40. Sapitwa says:

    This Idiot Mkandawire and his Livingstonia Synod do not understand what Dictatorship means let alone actions that describe a Dictator. Surely banging a table and applying the word Nonsense does not define one a Dictator.
    Nonsense simply means something missing sense in it. It is not even a swearing word as stupidly understood by Idiot Mkandawire and his Synod. Banging a table could be a sign of trying to emphasize a point and not a dictatorial action as implied by this idiot.
    My message to the President is to ignore this nonsense and carry on doing his job. These are the actions of Satanic forces from the church who are agents of MCP in trying to find the slightest opportunity to topple the government. It will not happen mainly to those DPP die hards at all cost.

  44. cnkhuto says:

    Mr Mkandawire, Sir, what you are communicating is very disturbing. When has the President started dictating this country. It is your church which is dictatorial. After all the lies journalists were spreading, you think the president could have been smiling. Journalist are destroying this country through negative reporting. Why don’t they verify with respective stakeholders for truth before reporting. I don’t think you know what you are doing. What you know is to pernalise unmarried pregnant ladies leaving abortions as holly in the church. I don’t think you are good analysts. You have fixed minds that’s why you church is dividing. You cant even solve your church leadership crisis and you think you can drive the country? I don’t think so?

  47. Benford says:

    According the section 35, every person has a right to freedom of expression,section 36 freedom to the press,therefore whatever you say, press will publish accordingly without fear or fever,section 37 access to the information,Malawians needs this bill to pass in the parliament inorder to know what happen in the ruling government.

  48. Telling the Truth says:

    I agree with those who have told Peter Mutharika to stop blaming cashgate and Joyce Banda. Afterall he told Malawians during the campaign that he has the solutions to problems caused by cashgate including withdrawal of budgetary aid. Is he admitting that he has failed? By the way community technical colleges will not fundamentally improve the lives of Malawians. There is very weak demand for goods and services to be produced and supplied by these gratuates. This programme exposes the poverty of DPP policies to develop this country.

  49. Chinyanga says:

    The issue is not where the criticism is coming from, who vomits it or his reason behind it..The matter of fact is; The leader overreacted & the criticism is worth regardless of where Mkandawire is originally from. Amalawi kumangovomeleza zilizonse bwanji, clapping hands to anything. This habit tends to tame dictators. Should we fail 2 correct where it is due coz our houses arent in order? should it be a burden to criticise coz of our religion even if things jumps out of the pan? really.??
    Of course He is a human being & he gets immotional at times but being able to cool the boiring situation is another outstanding quality of great leader. He was angry from the word go & the briefing was just a total mess..I rest my case.

      CSOs and Opposition politicians should take APM to task over his unbridled arrogance: If he is so rich that he does not need our money, why can’t he honourably resign so that a poor Malawian can have a go at being President? Maybe the poor guy could do a better job? This is the message that needs to be repeated over and over in the Southern Region so that it should sink in that the person they entrusted their vote with is just another arrogant bugger…

I thought the people would have cited with Peter after all the insults from the so called journalists.

  68. charles says:

    The president is a human being like any other person. He is not a supernatural being. He is subject to making mistakes like any other. He has feelings and emotions too. Its not wrong for a person to show his/her emotions. Every human being born of a woman shows his/her emotions at times. However, it is wrong to make conclusions based on somebodys emotions. God has emotions too. He feels happy at times and He also gets angry when we have wronged Him. Can we conclude that God is a dictator because He shows his emotions. The president is therefore not a dictator. He just showed his emotions.

  69. Malawiyano says:

    He is continuing what his brother had left before he died. The cash gate issue should as well be including the MK92bn and MK577bn not hiding and thinking that Malawi is suffering because of the JB MK24bn .
    Malawi sees no future in this dunderhead , four years is too much for this failure , he has now shown his true clolor he had during the brother’s leadership . He is not a presidential material at all , he come poor and he is today declaring himself a mult millionaire , who does know that the Munthalika family is known for stealing only ?
    No wonder his brother lost his job at COMES because of stealing.

  71. Denguzman says:

    Mr. Don’t say APM is like a dictator bt just call him a DICTATOR and his commentor is VIOLA. Viola, mupatse mpata APM. APM, i dont hate u bt i hate the way u re running this govt and if u adviser are telling that Malawian ndi anthu oputsa, u wl regret for the rest of life. APM, U TOLD US THAT U RE A MILLIONAIRE BUT U ALLOW THOSE WHO VOTED FOR U STRUGGLING TO FIND FOOD AND DRUGS. Tsamala weigh ur mouth coz GOD IS WATCHING U.

    Obanda and the Christian –You are very stupid !!!

  73. Utawasala says:

    Problem in Malawi a president is treated like small god. Because of this presidents abuse their positions. They can say any word they want and sometimes even rude to the people who erect them. Malawi is a country that is 100 years backwards because of the behaviour of the people putting leaders to unapproachable status. There is noway Malawi can suffer like this today. Church and Society stand up for truth, stand up for rightiousness and defend the poor Malawians who do not know what is going on. My advice to you is to be people with integrity when it is No, should be a No, and a Yes should be a Yes.

  74. Chiwa chimo says:

    I will give freedom of speech but freedom after speech i won’t guarantee you. Iddi amin hahahaha.

  75. obanda says:

    Moses Mkandawire you can continue fight fellow churches, Nkhoma synod not the government. If you want politics just start your political party, Livingstonia CCAP Political Party (LCPP). Thus why mukunzunza Rose Moyo in Karonga. Yet we have so many Tumbukas in central who are not performing in office.

  76. The Christian says:

    Livingstonia Synod, please put your house in order first before pointing fingures at others.You are a laughing stock of people

    liviningstonia tsopano, wen did u meet the president & advise him on that? evin a church can not be disciplined enough to know that there is always a better channel to advise the president than join crying pple on media! u can tell wat kind of pple make this church, indisciplined ones. wen there in paradise please behave, remember u wil not choose who, how,. shud rule u.kkk

  79. Professor Linton Pamberiii says:

    A Livingstonia first sort out mess in your church. Between Livingstonia Synod leadership and Pitala’s leadership which is more dictatorial? The approach of Levi Nyondo is worse off than Peters approach. You fail to make peace with Nkhoma Synod who are you to condemn Peters leadership? Do you have moral grounds to criticize when you are committing same mistakes in hyper levels.

  80. truth says:

    Cashgate was founded by Dpp. Now they are themselves to blame not PP. PP inherited a bombo about to explode and exploded in their hands. But the fact is that they fabricated the cashgate and now still continuing

  81. losco says:

    Too much freedom of expressions in Malawi. No respect to your President, what do u expect from him?

  83. maphwevuphwevu says:

    Malawians indeed are very stupid. Thus why Malawians just wait for hand outs day in day out. Most of people who are accusing Muthalika are the useless Tumbukas. This issue of over 100 people on the UNGA Touragewas very audible in USA than in Malawi. So the president got angry when he was in Ameria. Atumbuka chifukwa chiyani muchita choncho. You complain too much. If you dont know what you insult to the president , it makes him emotional. You are impolite to the president. Don’t hide behind democracy. You are arrogant to the head of state. Kodi kukhala president m’Malawi mkulimba eti, chifukwa ngakhale ngolo yaikazi ija ikatopa kukoka ngolo imalira imvekere mukunditola chifukwa ndine ngolo yaikazi eti. Pano ndi awa madalawa akumvanso moto. A Malawi taonjezatu ndi democracy yathu. At times the speaker present his issue according to the issue on the ground. That was too much. Imagine sending it to UNGA. Remember talking a lot of things against him during UNGA. The president decided not to respond you people but enforced him to do so?

  84. MZomera Ngwira says:

    This country needs a bit of dictatorship. If the President is soft, you have been saying the country is on Auto pilot. And this accusation coming from Livingstonia Synod is not strange. You hate Dpp led government! You have never supported DPP led government. You Northeners learn to appreciate when somebody does something good. How many regimes have gone without developing the Region? MCP led by Kamuzu Banda failed to develop the North and labeled it dead North. UDF led by Bakili Muluzi failed to develop the Region. DPP led by Bingu wamutharika constructed the Chiweta Road, Ekwendeni-Mtwaro Road, Mtwaro modern Secondary School, Constructed Reserve Bank, Constructed modern Nation Bank, Installed road traffic control lights (robots) which your forefathers have never seen Not mentioning Kayerekela Coal mine which has transformed the area beyond recogniton. Has brought big investors like shoprite. Now DPP led by APM is constructing Gender-Edingeni Road. Mombera University is on the cards! What type of people are you who do not know thank you? Usawi chi? It’s only the DPP led government that has transformed Malawi from Nsanje to Chitipa, Mchinji-Salima

    1. M23 says:

      Rubbish from a dunderhead. Chiweta Road was not constructed by Bingu, but Kamuzu.

    THE PROBLEM IS WHY CHARTERING A PLANE WHILE IN HOSPITALS THERE ARE NO MEDICINES AND HE ALREADY SAID MALAWI IS BROKE SO ALL OF YOUR SUPPORTING HIM YOU DONT HAVE BRAINS WHY NOT TAKING THAT MONEY OF CHARTERING A PLANE AND BUY MEDICINE IN HOSPITAL YOU GOT ALREADY GOT BINGUS MONEY WHY NOT TAKING A CENT AND BUY MEDICINE IN HOSPITAL WITH BINGUS MONEY SO YOU MUST SAY THAT YOU WANT TO HELP MALAWIANS THATS A BLUE LIE.

  95. Moses Makoko says:

    I am happy l didn’t waste my vote for him. To be honest, malawians are slow learners. After what we saw late Bingu doing, l wonder what you guys were expecting to see this guy doing different from his late brother!
    Malawi will continue struggling until we go back and start afresh. Do not forget that UDF gave birth to DPP and DPP gave birth to PP. So as long as we are under one of the parties above, we will continue crying and complaining becoz they have one type of leadership. Bola Chakwera’s.

    Wasting our tine with this guy. You church guys led the nation last time when you gave his brother 60 days to resign. Why are you not thinking of doing the same with this clueless man. By the time we realise things will be so bad we wont recover. Imagine Zimbabwe is better off with all the sanctions. These are old people who should retire. Goodall Gondwe and him are no longer useful to this country. We respect old people in this country if they respect us also.in America and everywhere else munthu akakalamba amakhala ndi ukali. Amakhala matenda and there is a medication for that. May be as some suggested he should go for mental evaluation bwdore its too late. Leading a country while mentally sick is dangerous
