APM changes Malawi’s development levels from, at first, Singapore to, now, USA levels

Barely a year after assuring Malawians that he will develop the country to levels of Singapore; President Peter Mutharika has backtracked and now says he will develop Malawi to levels of United States of America.

Mutharika: What pessimists think about does not matter, Malawi can develop

Speaking on Wednesday in Lilongwe, Mutharika—who returned to Lilongwe after a three-month absence—promised the people of the capital city that he would develop Malawi to the level of the United States of America or London.

The remarks are a sharp contrast to what the President said last year when he promised to develop Malawi to levels of South Africa and Singapore.

Speaking at Biwi Triangle on arrival from Blantyre, Mutharika who was in high spirits, said he is geared to transform Malawi in the next five years if voted into power again.

“If you give us another five years, this country will be transformed. It will be like South Africa, Singapore, London, America or Canada,” Mutharika said while laughing.

Not long ago, Malawi was ranked the world’s second-fastest growing economy, only superseded by the oil-rich Qatar. This landlocked country without minerals to talk about had peaked in economic growth.

The world has had economies that defied the odds to shed poverty and become prosperity. Singapore offers Malawi a reason to think positively and a lesson to emulate. It assures the so-called third poorest nation on earth that with proper planning, dedication, sacrifices and unity of its people, it is possible to make a difference.

The Chinese have developed on the basis of their own theory. The same applies to the Japanese, South Koreans, Rwandese and many other countries that are doing well.

Malawi can rebuild and do what other countries did.

My belief is that APM is now in Lilongwe to pack his belongings at Kamuzu Palace.

The past 6 years what have you done? If so you claim that you have developed the country then why don’t we have medicine and equipment in hospitals?
APM from now onwards no one should be going to India or South Africa when they are sick.
We need good roads in the past six years you failed to build motor ways from Nsanje to Chitipa and from nkhotokota to Mchinji.

Malawians are poor In mind and when someone with rich mind speaks, they fail to understand the thought or the rich mind. No wonder many don’t understand APM.

This stupidity must stop. You can’t even develop to the level of Zambia. Give this man another five years, let alone ten, and he will move the Capital City to Thyolo.

Given another five years, he will transform Malawi into London, South Africa, Canada, USA and Singapore. He said this while laughing – yes, laughing at his own joke! The man is a complete idiot to even imagine that people will fall for such nonsense. Yes, we are all laughing too, you stupid man. No one with half a brain would believe and trust you.

President Mutharika is really going senile. How on earth can he get Malawi developed to USA standards in the next 5 years. What was he doing in the last 6yrs? Absolutely absurd. This is total hogwash.

this guy APM should stop taking Malawians for fools!…..he can’t say he would take this country to development levels of SA,US, etc when during the past 6yrs Malawi has lagged many years behind Zambia and Tanzania.

In short APM is a fool and doesn’t deserve any term.
