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… Read more »

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… Read more »
