Nnesa gives APM jabs for ‘inconsistencies, incoherence’ in BBC interview

Some Malawians have taken it to social media and radio phone in programmes to express reservations on the way President Peter Mutharika answered questions on BBC HardTalk interview programme on Monday, saying there were lots of inconsistencies and incoherence.

Nnesa: We are confused

Nnesa: We are confused

Mutharika said on BBC that cashgate- the looting of public resources at Capital Hill – hit the country so hard and will take time to jump start the economy after donors withdrew their budgetary support.

Speaking in an interview Tuesday morning with Capital Radio’s DayBreak Malawi programme, Mafunde president George Nnesa said Mutharika’s interview on BBC showed the Head of State is clueless on how to improve the ailing economy.

“We are very confused, we don’t know what to do,” said Nnesa in reference to Mutharika’s declaration that Malawi can do without traditional donors who have left Malawi due to mismanagement of their money.

Nnesa said the donors are still giving aid to Malawi through injecting directly into projects instead of budgetary support.

Rumphi East MP Kamlepo Kalua told Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe in parliament to get back to work and be serious in fixing the economy than blaming the infamous cashgate.

Kalua had been showing that the executive arm of government had been extravagant and corrupt which led to huge sums of money being used on senseless budgets citing the purchase of top of the range vehicles for the executive and the missing over close to 200 tractors meant for poor subsistence farmers who were supposed to migrate from hoe farming to mechanised farming.

  1. Let’s pray for our country I have no side on this but what have we done ourselves to improve the situation. Lets take part to improve the situation of our economy for our betterment and the whole country as a whole

    What can Kaluwa and Mnesa tell Malawians. These two are total failures in life !!!! kkkkkkkkkk

  3. Bentby says:

    I have never seen a president clueless as him, everytime he attempted to answer the presenter, his answers were off the mark. He even discredited nyasatimes just to save his stinking fate. Our my village in nkhotakota my family, and the whole village lost their arable land to the commercial smallholder farmers for cane production. But on BBC interview he dubiously ignored it. People are suffering due to his policies. Worthy people are flirting on the heads of poor

    Some of you commenting here are commenting blindly and without thought and connection or any relation to the interview in question. I doubt that you have listened to the President’s interview with Zainab Badawi on BBC. What I read in Mnensa’s argument, and which is what I also got from our president, is that there are a lot of inconsistencies in what the president said. I am in the same boat with George Mnensa, I am equally confused after listening to this interview.

    Shallow argument and news item. The criticism of the president is completely weak – it is just for the sake of it.

    Can I simply just say what a comfort to uncover somebody
    that actually understands what they’re discussing on the net.
    You certainly kno how to bring an issue to light and
    make it important. More people really nneed tto check this
    out and understand tgis side off the story. I waas surprised
    that you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.

    APM please can you address the nation what is happening to the kwacha freefall as economy will make us a failed state if freefall continues. Chuka has to go immediately his policies are proving dangerous for poor Malawians. We need action now before its too late

  17. Nabiyeni says:

    1. Vuto m’boma muli anthu ambiri okuba. One example is the PS for Information who is using a KIA Sorento from Macra on full time basis when the Ministry also provided him with a Prado. Why taking advantage of his position. When it comes to servicing the car macra pays for all the bills. Kunena za fuel ndi allowances collected from macra nde iiiiii khaya kumampenya basi. Where does the funds that the government gives to the Ministry go? If macra has much to spend why not assisting in constructing a cancer clinic where a lot of people will benefit from not only those from the Ministry of Information.

    2. a First lady mukutaya nthawi ndi Beam when the government hospitals are in a pathetic situation. Why not join hands and help by making sure all faulty equipment that can be repaired in the hospitals is attended to? How can you beautify these towns when there are no toilets around? Are we being honest here? We will continue urinating and throwing rubbish all over because out towns have no toilets and our markets have no place where to through rubbish. In Tanzania you can hardly find ntchetche in the markets. Amathila mankhwala a Ministry of Health akumeneko. Beam yanuyo ilibe maganizo ngati amenewa? Udzudzu can be eradicated by straying in all swampy areas. Amai athandizeni amuna anu bomatu lowavuta ili. Anthu akuba mma office mu kaye akati kusonkha towards mulakho nde dyeledyele.

    8-)say whatever you like,that won’t change anything.HE is the only man knowledgeable enough to transform this landlocked,poverty striken nation into a more better diversified economy.if you look closely at countries like China and India,you will be suprised to see that their successes did just happen overnight or by just pressing a red button.Well,to the contrary,it took decades of hardwork,dedication and love.now,this folk has just a year or so in office and you want to feel every little he makes.hell,no.MALAWIANS lets be reasonable.Mind you..poverty eradication works only when folks work together for the common goal by breaking barriers that arise due political,ethnic or simply religious backgrounds..!!NEVER KNOW WHAT You Göt till its surely GonE..PEACE….

    Not that Malawi can do any better. Remain the poorest County. Inu Bambo Mnesa musatinyanse. Let the world no you are foolish. You could not drive your own father in your cars. Your father had to walk distances to get transport. Your wife telling your father, old man to wash his own clothes when visiting you. I feel to slap you on your face. Your father died as he suffered much of your toucher. His spirit will torment you forever and you will never be voted for any presidency. I pitty you and I know you. Kukhwima chani

  22. Bwande says:

    Listening to the interview, one would conclude the president has no idea of what really the problem is with Malawi. You wouldn’t be proud to be Malawian at this point with such a clueless leader

  23. xxx says:

    Owen, I know you can do better by expounding on your article otherwise its hanging ad confusing at the same time.

  24. ben says:

    Goodall should stop blaming cashgate for everything, it is your job as Finance minister to fix the economic crisis, look at inflation out of control, kwacha is on freefall heading to be the next zimbabwe dollar. If you have run out of ideas please resign let someone else try as we are going nowhere at the moment with economic recovery.

  26. Truck says:

    Welukani Mbwiye mukapitirize tchuti ku Ulaya katengeni ka green card kanu you are sleeping on the job.
    PAYE tax payers want to send you on unpaid leave you are a big liability APM. We do not see why we should say we have a president when you can’t work for us eversince you started. The amount of fuel spent on those vehicles could have brought us water. A25 we have no water, I have never taken a shower, I cannot turn on the water heater because the element will burn. Candles, makala and water a pa chitsime characterizes my life as a graduate in the millenium era. What an insult. And every month I pay over half a million in PAYE. I deserve a working president not the slumbering one.
    I counted the vehicles that were on your return motorcade over 120 vehicles making us wait in the rain 45minutes kuti inu mudutse, Zantchito kapena za show??

    BAMBO THATS WHY YOU LOST IN THE ELECTIONS. YOU RUSH TO THE PAPER INSTEAD OF GOING TO MUTHARIKA AND SHOW HIM WHERE HE IS FAILING. PITY

    The President we have in APM! kikikikikiki

  30. Bingu says:

    State of hopelessness is what one can describe Malawi today. You work hard day and sometimes night to try and make ends meet but the more you want the ends to meet the more they stay apart. I still want to draw you back to the campaign times when most of us talked like prophets that APM is not material enough to take us to the land we wish to be. He demonstrated lack of transformational leadership qualities in a mere ministry. Don’t tell you me that you could expect any miracle from such a man. We need a person who can carry the whole nation with him in times of trouble. A leader who can provide confidence and assurance that can make people work. When a leader says we dont need donors today and tomorrow he says we can not do wothout donors, that leaders is inconsistent and not fit to lead a poor country like ours. Peter is one such leader who does not believe in tapping from opposing views. Why can’t he call for a crisis indaba with various stakeholders and chart the way forward. I can say it without fear of contrandiction that the challenges we have in this country are too big for the proffesor. He should stop being self centred and engage people. There are very able citizens in this country who can assist him better than his highly politicised cabinet.
