Mutharika doesn’t care about the poor, PP blasts Malawi President

Malawi President, Peter Mutharika has come under heavy criticism for failing to consider the plight of poor Malawians as  he travelled with a delegation of over 100 people to the 2015 United Nations General Assembly.

Msonda: Mutharika is insesitive to the poor Malawians

Msonda: Mutharika is insesitive to the poor Malawians

Mutharika on Monday left for United States of America to attend the UN General Assembly’s 70th session which will attract leaders from 120 countries across the globe.

Surprisingly, instead of being considerate to the country’s current economic woes, Mutharika has opted to take on board over 100 individuals with a budget cost of about K350 million.

The revelation about Mutharika’s trip expenditure comes at the time when government is failing to provide medical supplies and food in country’s hospitals due to lack of funds.

One of the country’s opposition political parties, Peoples Party (PP) has joined the country’s citizens in condemning Mutharika over the bloated delegation.

PP Publicity and Administration Secretary, Ken Msonda said it was very disheartened with the Mutharika administration’s way of running this country.

”Malawians are currently going through economic hardships and it seems the leadership doesn’t care,” said Msonda.

”It is undemocratic way of running a country. The DPP administration don’t have the welfare of poor citizens at heart”.

Msonda argued that the country’s leadership is clueless on how to run the affairs of the country.

”It is talking about other government institutions tightening economic belts on expenditure as the country is experiencing economic meltdown whilst the Executive is doing the opposite”.

This is not first time Mutharika has come under fire for failing to be economic when he travelling outside the country; he was once accused of living a luxurious life during his first trip to America as Malawi President.

    Shame on malawian CSOs, church organisations, PAC, shame on you, Evangelical churches including Episcopal conference of Malawi!!!! you are watching all this shit and clap hands. you are not for the people. Amalawi akuzinzika. Look at where the country is going with this idiot!! and you are doing completely nothing!! Adakakhala JB bwenzi pano muli balalaa demonstrating in streets of this country. Useless leaders. We are indeed in dark times. akudyetsani ma bans mukulephela kuyankhula????????sssshhhh!!!!

  2. W. PHIRI says:

    We Malawians forget very quickly. There is a report stating that during the DPP era MK577 bIllion and nobody is talking about this in DPP. Why? Because if one is involved in the issue you tend to overlook as if it never happened. IF you read newspapers from Monday this week you will see headlines about hunger looming in this country. Today when everyone is worried about hunger we go FOR SHOPPING. if you fail to run the department you can not run the whole company.

    Let us feel sorry for our country ladies and gentlemen.

    One day hotel accomodation US $499 = mK289,420 *15 DAYS =mk4,341,300 each person.

    SHAME SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Let the poor take their life in their own hands rather than always looking to government for everything.

  4. kaimvizoyeram'mutu says:

    Nsonda don’t talk like wise man from the east. You were in the government. If you were angels in running government the poor people in the village couldn’t have returned to Egypt after being free from king Pharaoh. This means PP was not a better substitution at all.You performed badly and you are still performing badly as well. All what you are good at is being eloquent like that all the times. Uli mutu gwa ngati uli pa ma ARV treatment. How many times did you defend for JB’s global trotting. Its JB who introduced global trotting in Malawi dictionary.

  5. food for thought says:

    I would like to see proof of this expenditure. It is pointless to make comments on the basis of what seems to be hearsay. Please give us the proof of this expenditure as well as the means by which this delegation of government officials and other stakeholders paid for the trip. This is a government looking for re-election, dumb moves like this logically should and would be avoided. Patiently waiting for confirmation…

  6. saiton phiri says:

    We are tired of this government, let them do as they wish.Let poor people die in poverty and hunger no one cares.

  7. It is some few civil servants that are failing this nation. Not the presiden because he can not do it alone. They were employed to be watchdogs and bell ringers but alas! They have turned themselves into thieves. Judiciary included.

    Kodi ndalama zasakazidwa mwa uve chonchi zikanakhala kuti zidagawida ku zigawo kuti eni zigawo ayendese zitukuko; mbavazi zikanatha kukatapa ku zigawoko?

    Tamverani a Malawi. Boma la chitaganya kapena la federalism kapena la mphamvu kuzigawo ndi lokhalo lingateteze chuma chathu ku mbava izi. Ndizomvesa chisoni kuti a Malawi ena chifukwa choziganizila iwo eni akukana kuti chuma cha boma chizigawida ku zigawo kutenggela population ndiponso kutengela kupezeka kwa natural resources za ku ma region. Apo biiii, a Malawi tipitiliza kulira!

  9. stompido says:

    Am not even surprised with this behaviour,but first of all I shud blame malawians who voted to Dpp due to the works of the late president.Pipo differ and here we are Peter and Bingu totally different,the economy is very bad to all developing countries but its so shocking to take 100 pipo plus to america in the name of bringing forex well we will wait and see if those very same pipo didn’t just go for a holiday of shopping in New york.

  16. my lovely malawo(pc) says:

    It is very pathetic to see the president heartlessly hammering the poor Malawians to suffer such a plight that is deliberately calculated by some other politicians like this Peter.

    bad gvt of lomwes .am a lomwe too mandala athuwa awononga dziko ili bola amayi aja bwanji dollars ,njala mankhwala, security nothing. is working

  18. Telling the Truth says:

    If any Malawian thought that Peter Mutharika and DPP would improve his or her life he or she is mistaken. Peter Mutharika does care about ordinary people. He has sharply increased fees and charges.

    Joyce Banda cleared the mess which was left behind by DPP during Bingu’s time. This time they want to bring that mess again. This DPP is a shit government. These Muthalikas are not good leaders .

  29. Zagwa says:

    Both the president and his vice are too extravagant. Their motivation to lead the country has always been misplaced, no wonder they rigged the election. Look at their encourages… The vice presidents convoy/motorcade surpasses that of the president of rich Botswana. One would understand this kind of behavior coming from the president coz he is past his sale by date, they must be stopped!

  31. Chipapwuche says:

    Anthuwa nchimodzimodzi angosiyana dzina!! PP never cared about the poor. Some of the problems we are facing today are a result of zpP’s failure to run the government. I vividly recall how JB travelled within and outside Malawi almost everyday. She was never in office.. Msonda should be the last person to blast DPP. Nonse afiti nokhanokha… 2019 will try Hellen Singh

    If there is anybody who is insenstive to the plight of Malawians, it’s those who stole billions of poor people’s money, causing this untold suffering. As for me I don’t take Msonda seriously. He is just a mercenary.
