We will not be silenced by Mutharika outburst – Mayaya

A leading human rights activist in Malawi has cautioned President Peter Mutharika from shouting at Malawians as if there were his own children, saying instead he is accountable to them.

Mayaya: Malawians will always prevail

Mayaya: Malawians will always prevail

Billy Mayaya, renowned for organising peaceful protests, said the intimidation would not stop Malawians from voicing their concerns.

“We will not be silenced. Malawi is going down the tube and he is busy gallivanting around the world instead of showing leadership,” said the fearless Mayaya.

In his press briefing on Thursday in Lilongwe, Mutharika flatly ruled out slowing down on global trotting on expensive chartered luxurious presidential jets, defiantly saying before December, he would be up in the skies heading to India and England.

But Mayaya said this type of arrogance, intolerance and insensitivity to national issues shows this is not the type of a leader Malawians wanted.

“At the end of the briefing, am convinced we don’t have a leader who can talk to people who elected him. He tried to make sense out of nonsense out of the advice his so called advisors gave him. All he ended up doing was showing his true colours as an arrogant person,” said Mayaya.

But Mutharika said Malawians should understand that the office of the president, the highest in the land needs respect, irrespective of the occupant.

“Do you want your president to be at the airports for 10 hours? Please respect the office of the president. I want to help you and I want this radio to tell me how I will be travelling to countries overseas. I don’t want your money but I want to help you,” he said.

    Billy Mayaya is the most attention seeking I know. He is positioning himself for 2019. He will stand as an MCP candidate, just like Jessie Kabwila did. She fooled us that she was an activist for academic freedom, yet she stood for MCP in 2014. Bily will do the same.
    When APM was quiet, Billy and company accused him of being arrogantly silent.
    Now APM has spoken, Billy and company are accusing of being arrogantly noisy.
    Billy Mayaya is educated, he should tell us which country in the world has ever developed through demos? America? Britain? China?
    Billy, tell us how did America deal with the “occupy the streets demos”? If Malawi does the same to your demos you will be calling on APM to resign, yet you did not call on Obama to step down.
    Malawian’s ignore Maya and concentrate on developing your own lives.
    Don’t follow “Billy”!
    You will end up “Silly”!

    Billy Mayaya is working for his political future in 2019. He will stand as an MCP mp. This was what Jessie Kabwila was foing, masquerading as an activist to gain political ground.
    When APM was not commenting on anything Billy Mayaya and company accused him of being arrogantly quite.
    When he has spoken Billy Mayaya says APM is arrogantly shouting at Malawian’s.
    Mayaya is one of the greatest attention seekers I have ever known. His strategy is yo maje as much moise as possible to be noticed by MCO and hence position himself well go 2019.
    Any one who will who to Mayaya’s demos eill simply be helping Mayaya’s future political career.
    The lives of Malawian’s will not be changed by demos.
    Billy Mayaya you are educated, tell us did America, Britain or China develop through demonstrations?
    Tell us what really has caused these countries to develope. China is not even democratic.
    Tell us how did the American government deal with the “occupy the street” demos. Don’t lie to us. We saw the pictures on TV. If police in Malawi do the same thing to your demos what will you say? You will accuse them of using too much force. You will call for APM to resign yet you did not call for Obama to resign, Malawian’s don’t follow “Billy”
    You may end up being “Silly”!

  10. Akamanga apa ndiye mwafotokoza monveka bwino. Tiyeni amalawi tikhale anthu ochenjela. Tisamangosekelela zina zilizonse zomwe munthu wakamba pomaopa kuti ndi presdent. Tiyeni timuuze ameneyu kuti dziko ndichinthu chantengo wapatali .

  11. Peter’s arrogance makes him think he will be changing suits in his grave. His body will be embalmed otherwise it will rot. Every arrogant human being should know this. There is no less human being. His status can be better but he shoukd respect our taxes.He has to respect Malawians whether poor or not. The campaign was based on alleviating poverty.

  13. Inu musatinyanse apa, zauchitsiru! mukuona ngati malawi wa lero ndi malawi wa dzana ndiwofanana? stupid! do you think tingamangokumverani zilizonse, ngati muli ndi ma personal issues with the President dont use malawians, fotseki! get lost!

  14. zathu.zomwe says:

    spare the poor Malawians from this nonsense, we’ve had enough of this tendency of trying to persuade Malawians to go against their leaders. I think the president was angry with this type of people who feel their voice is more important than the rest of us. Don’t use the name of Malawians in trying to achieve your personal goals, otherwise I don’t see anyone who can transform the country overnight if APM decided to resign. If Malawians are not satisfied with his leadership then the best way is to wait until 2019, otherwise Malawi has never had a leader who was respected after Kamuzu, and Kamuzoyonso it was just out of fear. It’s good to be patriotic but that has to be sincere. Let’s love our country, it’s the only one we have, nsima is our first food not politics.

  15. cole j says:

    Speak out the truth Sir much needed at this pivotal point when current leadership lacks integrity, authenticity, accountability. Malawians are in hurting in silence in the name two faced politicians. Fearless # servant leadership # no more lies #

  16. George Kamanga says:

    Malawians will never be intimidated by dogs like APM & his diehard. His late brother did the same but he went to the grave as rotten dog killed by toddlers.

    APM outburst should never scare you. His days are numbered. The cash he stole which was meant to uplift lives of many poor Malawians is haunting him. kubwebweta uku kusonyeza mizimu yomwe yapita kulichete yakwiya chifukwa ndalama za mankhwala iye anabisa kunja. APM umwalira ngati bingu.

    Maxon Mbendera, Kenyatta Nyirenda and Saulosi Chilima musafatse inu moto ukuwotchani ndi kukupyerezani ndi nkhanza yomwe mwawachitira a Malawi osalakwa popeleka boma mwakuba kwa galuyu (APM).

    Mumamputa dala kuti akapanga react mumpezere zifukwa? What kind of a nation is Malawi? Where were you Mayaya when Joyce Banda was I can’t stop flying around distributing chickens? So because she was sharing you cashgate money it wasn’t arrogance? CSOs are destroying our country due to greed. The opposition is equally doing the same. Ati ‘president atule pansi udindo’ kwinaku dovu liri chuchuchu kuti awakhe akatula pansi. Is this really for the good of Malawi? Lord help our leader

    Billy Mayaya ndi wa MCP.Kaye kuda ngati chokozera. Nanu dikirani ambusa anu akadzala president, mudzasiya kusokotsa. Zimatero. Survival of the fittest.

  20. chivwamba says:

    Or anthu a church where are they now. I think its PAC. You have deserted Malawians when they need you. Undule did a good job in his days. Mtambo wake up. This President and his DPP are going to kill us. Dr. Chilima do u see what u did to Malawians. You think God will forgive you? You led the rigging of the elections? This man needd to go ASAP

  21. ineyo says:

    A Billy ine ndimadabwa nanu. Kodi mumayankhula izi poti mukudziwa simudzakhala president? Inuyo tangoganizani muli president mungafune muzikhala pa airport 10 hours? President office really need respect. I may not like Peter but the office deserves respect

  22. PHILLIPS CHISAMBO says:

    We told u Malawians that u elected a brother of a corrupt and a corrupt himself! Were you really Malawians thinking that you were solving the problem or piling problems? You were very stupid thinking that Cashgate was started by JB. Her sin! She is a woman,so you voted this criminal into power to spite JB forgetting that you were promoting corruption and nepotism. Now ! You made the bed,and you must lie on it! God bless Malawi!!!

  23. becks says:

    Malawi needs 10 Billys. You see all CSOs leaders have gone into oblivion. All have been silenced by DPP stolen money. BILLY BANDA, LUCKY MBEWE, MARTHA KWATAINE, HABIBA Oman, etc

    MUTHARIKA ACHOKE. NTHAWI YAKWANA YOTI ACHOKE. ASAFIKE 2019 AMENEYU.

  25. Malawiyano says:

    Federalism is the only answer to this mess especially if he was voted in by homeboys who are busy ill advising him day and night. Other regions don’t feel that they have a president because their party presidents had more votes in their regions than the one who went in through the court.
    Just introduce federalism if Malawians want to have a smooth Malawi leadership otherwise Malawians will never respect all these forced heads of state.

  26. Chingwe cha mbuzi says:

    Kodi banzi ya k10 mita munatenga ku dpp ija yatha kale. Please don’t take Malawians for granted. Mchitidwe wotokota chifukwa wapsa siwabwino. Akakunyambititsa ina k10 mita basi usiya kutokota. Koma umphawi abale ndi obvuta. By the way, Billy Mayaya, Kodi k50m munaba ku HRCC pamodzi ndi mnzako Undule ndi Sembereka munabweza??? HRCC has now lost financial support from Norway due to your cash gate at HRCC. IWe billy mayaya ndiye ubona liti?
