President Mutharika: There is light at the end of the tunnel

“This year’s Festive Season is a special one because this year, we marked 50 years of our independence as a nation,” Mutharika said in his first Christmas message to the nation.

He said the festive season was the birth of a new chapter for “our beloved nation, a nation that has to mature. This is what makes this Festive Season a special one as it delivers a big message to us all living in a nation at 50.”

Mutharika said in the spirit of Christmas, he wanted each one to reflect on the big message behind Christmas, adding that it was a call to each one to do better in their respective field.

“It is a call to be a better neighbour, a better brother, a better sister, a better parent, a better civil servant or worker, a better clergy, a better chief, a better subject and above all a better citizen of this country.

“If you take a look at what has happened with our economy which has been riddled by the infamous cashgate, you can surely be with me in the call for a better Malawi. A Malawi that is full of love for one another and our nation.

“We are facing all these economic hurdles because of lack of love for one another. Remember we are in this situation but for a while, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

“Your Government under my leadership will do all it can to ensure a better and prosperous 2015. We are working towards a cashgate-free 2015. Let’s hold hands and work together for a better Malawi.”

    The speech is empty there is no facts and it doesn’t even having the presidential tone giving hope to the frustrated minority citizens who voted for him what a waste and what a shame , this totally nonsense

    There is no sense in speech everyday than in deeds.You keep on telling fruitless ideas without any due action.Mwatondeka Dada lekani waka pasi chinthu ichi pambele vinthu vindafike at its peak.

    Leadership does not necessarily need higher education.Intelligence is for educated people and wisdom is for leaders.Educated people need leaders and leaders need educated people.
    Without wise leader educated people are nothing.Very few are blessed with both intelligence and wisdom.These people are rarely found in political circle because they have both judgements of life.It has proven to me beyond reasonable doubt that APM is very intelligent but no wise.He needs wise people like me though not intelligence enough to be recognized.It more difficult to recognize wise people than recognize intelligent people because intelligent people have papers to show while wise people have nothing to show.

  10. Angozo says:

    Empty speech. There is nothing tangible in this speech as he has not outlined anything to achieve his goals. He is not telling us where we are coming from, where we are and where going and how to get there. What kind of a professor is this who cannot put things in context?

  11. clement says:

    For sure come 2015,Malawi will be better place than before. 16:53:49 will be a shame to MCP and PP salvages after DPP overcome this economic hardship Malawians currently facing.nowadays,these donors are tired aiding poor countries.

  12. Tsamba Likagwa says:

    APM kuchitekete. Continue to inspire us with hope as our dear leader. I always believe in what you say that ” better days are coming”. We love your our President. May the Good Almighty God give you abundant wisdom to take Malawi to the promised land which all Malawians are dreaming about

  13. New chapter means no forex, shame you

  14. Leo says:

    I even forget that we have a president. I have never seen a dormant president like this one in Malawi. Useless, avaricious, brainless, nepotic, tribalistic, corrupt adjectives are endless ti describe IBU. mxiiiiiii

  15. THANKS MR. PRESIDENT FOR YOUR VOICE TO THE NATION, LETS SEE IF THIS WILL BE RECEIVED BY ALL MAALWIANS AND OTHER RACES IN MALAWI,

    LETS LOVE ONE ANOTHER AND TO KEEP MALAWI IN PEACE AND CALM.

  16. Kaligondo says:

    This sounds like the lamentations other than Christmas message. Why does Mr. President look so scared and nervous? It is not easy to run a country especially when God knows what you did to sit on that chair.

  17. The Truthful One from the West says:

    An empty speech. The majority of poor Malawians are barely surviving.

  18. Kenkkk says:

    Thanks for the national love and unifying speech. But just to remind you that it is the “infamous cashgates” not “infamous cashgate”. It seems you have the tendency to forget the other cashgates. So for better 2015, please consider all cashgates!!!

    But most of all we need actions not rhetorics to spur the development of our country.

    Merry Xmas fellow malawians and a hopefully prosperous new year.

  20. me says:

    midnight six mr president
    just go and live another place.put elections again because you fail every issues
    its the better you can do now plz

  21. Are there still malawians who believe in spoken words without tangible deeds. Malawi is lame nation indeed.

  22. Are there still malawians who believe in spoken words without tangible deeds. Malawi have is lame nation

  23. Yudasi Iscariot says:

    A better Malawi is indeed possible but as you have now come to realize this country still needs a push by our cooperating partners and we need to win back their confidence in us. Unfortunately what your wife and mlakho tribesmen are doing with regard to NAC funds is not helping matters. Is NACgate beyond your capacity to solve Sir?

  24. mona says:

    Declare your demonic assets and then resign you will never bring change but rather shame, the new chapter we Want is your resgination

  25. ujeni says:

    Cashgate if K13bn is now a scapegoat for your failure. You dont miss a chance to mention it. Yet you forget it started with K92bn by your DPP, your MHC houses corruption aquisition and many more. The light at the end tunnel saying which was used by many struggling African states is now out of date, as it was used to hoodwink Africans, but not anymore. Stop using the silly analogue or saying

  26. Mauya says:

    Thank you our president for giving us this hopeful christmas message.National Developmental Action however is all Malawi needs.May Jehovah give you abundant wisdom to faithfully lead the stressed and much exploited Malawi nation lest disaster befalls our Jehovah-fearing nation

  27. Mapwiya says:

    Good message but tell your officials to stop employing DPP followers in all top positions.
    Match your words with action, be inclusive please.

  28. KING SOLOMONS WISDOM says:

    APM.WE WANT ACTION NOT LIP SERVICE.

  30. Issa Kabudula says:

    This is the best massage from the matured leader, together and love of one another we can do moreeee. Tisamakondwe to be called felthy rich when our riches r not of benefit to others, Iam waiting for a good Malawians of the 1980s were full of love and sharing, the today ones r ready for a kill – what is this? May we turn things together to the right direction – happy new year Mr. President.

  31. A better Malawi with your wife’s BEAM stealing from NAC and using crooks to refund the money? This is just Christmas rhetoric. A better Malawi without the judiciary. Please end the strike because there are many Malawians that are being denied justice. It is not only criminals like the Manondos that need the courts. What about mere oaths? What about civil cases? Please end the arroagance of the judiciary who seem not happy with the civil service salary harmonization. That alone is being selfish. Muthalika should also stop favouring his tribe for appointments. Malawi is simply a rogue state without direction. There are no jobs for most Malawian youths.

  32. Its new chapter as thugs are free to rob inside CBD

  35. Padoko says:

    Amen! But above all, reformed politicians. Crooked politicians ruin all our efforts for our better Malawi. Welcome 2015, dawn and hope over Malawi

  36. Gift Kayipa. says:

    Thanks Mr President for a message

  37. shame shame says:

    Mr. President you knew about cashgate and it’s related consequences before you came in office and therefore should already have plans to deal with it. But it is now apparent that you and your team came in completely unprepared and seven months down the line you remain clueless.

  38. ZAMADALA says:

    KAYA KAYA KAYA KAYA KAYA aaaa!!!

    NDAKAIKA INE MWE !!!

  39. Kamwaze says:

    Your Excellency thank you for the festive message. Since the cashgate issue/s are still at the court (sub judice) may we focus on nation- building. How you win the presidency against all odds stacked against you, only God knows. How the majority if illiterate Malawians managed to evade the first eight more good looking faces in the ballot paper and settle for you, only God knows. How you managed to outwit a well-oiled PP campaign machinery that drew such multitudes to their rallies, only God knows. How you managed to sweep under the carpet the economic gains if the previous regime and the nation has remained largely docile, only God knows. How you managed to subdue the ‘holy man’ Dr Laz, inspite of the incessant prayers from all over bombarding the throne room of God, only God knows. How you have managed to stay romance-free for the past 30 years only to surface today in the presidency as a lonely lover looking for a bride only God knows. But sir, spare us the gory details of a year gone by which we all would like to quickly forget for the ills and ill wills it has come to be characterized by. Merry Chrismas to u all and a prosperous new year, or rather, new you.

  40. aphiri says:

    A better Malawi? It can be a better Malawi if u control ur money hungry wife and ur lomwe guys who are competing in buying Mercedes Benz. Indians are bn milked to hv ur favours. Mr president u are failing to control things within ur own country. May be u hv ur next home. By the way 6 days before expiry of assets declaration. Merry Christmas

  41. Mbolo Sidwala! says:

    Za mkutu! Coming from him, its one of those usual political rhetorics. Its easier said than done. I dont think he has the capacity to turn thngs around!
