Atupele says learner president will be ‘calamitous’ for Malawi: Urges vote for Mutharika

Atupele Muluzi, the running mate to President Peter Mutharika of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the July 2 fresh presidential election, is stepping up the pace of his campaign to boost re-election of the incumbent, urging Malawians  to cast their ballots for Mutharika  with a warning that voting untried and tested leader would be calamitous.

The United Democratic Front (UDF) president, who is son to former president Bakili Muluzi,  was speaking on Monday during his whistle-stop tour from Lilongwe to Blantyre.

He started his whistle-stop tour on Saturday from Zomba  to Monkeybay in the eastern region then moved to Lilongwe.

Speaking during a whistle-stop, Atupele, 41-year-old Minister of Energy said Mutharika has the experience to keep the country stable.

“Let all registered voters turn in large numbers on 2 July and vote for President Professor Arther Peter Mutharika, the symbol of four maize cobs. We should not make that mistake of giving learners the leadership of this country. It wil be calamitous,” said Atupele.

Atupele said the country does not need “opposition coalition of chaos’ apparently referring to Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and UTM Party president Saulos Chilima who  have partnered in a nine-party Tonse Alliance as presidential candidate and running mate, respectively

He said for Malawi to steady its ship on critical issues of  statecraft —in effect the art of governing competently— Mutharika is the person to give a vote to, promising  that a combination of democrats in the DPP-UDF alliance will bring comparative competence.

Atupele  also commended President Mutharika for his interest to push young people into leadership positions and pass on the button to run the race, saying apart from his appointment as running mate, the Cabinet has youthful ministers and several key positions in government have been given to young people.

He sad President Mutharika does not want younger people to be  squeezed  “asamafinyike” and that he want  Atuple to champion their plight so that they achieve their individual aspirations.

DPP and UDF have formed an electoral alliance to in a bid to garner votes following Malawi Supreme Court of Appeal’s interpretation of majority as 50-percent-plus-one vote in the presidential election.

Apparently Atupele is telling Malawians why his father, Bakili Muluzi, ruined our country when he took over the presidency in 1994………according to Atupele, it is because Bakili was a learner…

Government is not a synod and so running a government is very different from running a church. Chakwera failed to develop a small church, surely he is not fit to lead Malawi to prosperity. Let him go back to the pulpit. APM Bomaaaaaaaa, AAM Bomaaaaaaa DPP-UDF Bomaaaaaaa!

Malawi belong to the citizens

The truth shall set Malawians free. From what Atupele has just said,I feel sorry for him.He is ending his political career in this way laying to malawians that Peter Munthalika is a good leader.The truth is that Peter Munthalika is not a good leader.A good leader put citizens first.Thats rule number one in public office.A good leader guard the resources of the country so that citizens should benefits.A good leader does not steal K145 million in the name of donation. Kupusisa amalawi osapita kuschool.Muluzi adaba K1.7 billion, ndichifukwa ali ndi case Ku khoti.The following are examples of calamitous Presidents in… Read more »

Cairo try to use your brain,think for how long people have been voting for UDF and DPP, citizens are swimming in poverty.Atupele was in DPP why didn’t he support Peter.And Peter choose Chimulirenji to the shock of everyone.Peter and Atupele were in good terms why they didn’t support each other,if they were in one page..Like father like son.Atupele adapusisidwa ndi atate ake.The plan was after Bingu amayenera Kuti Atupele alamulire ngati ufumu.Koma Bingu adayika mg’ono wake, Muluzi sadapeze bwino.Mpaka kufuna kuphwesa chubu Chopopa yekha.Amuluzi amafuna chiyani.Zipani zosafuna wina wapadera asatsogolere.There is no democracy in these two parties.When you steal money… Read more »

So says a party President who lost in his own constituency. Autuple is like a leech sucking dry the blood of Malawians, a spoilt brat born with a golden spoon waiting for Malawians to send him packing and out of politics forever. Atupele is the son of the most corrupt, most tribalistic and most nepotistic Bakili Muluzi.

There’s all kinds of experience. One is experience at plundering government resources.

Malemu Tippex Arthur P Stole K145 million

This young man is as evil as his father. He who waits for the death of someone so that he takes over whether it’s wealth or a position is evil. Atupele and his father Bakili know that the days of. Peter Muthalika are numbered and he would easily ascend to the presidency after the former dies in office. The probability of Muthalika dying before 2025 are very high. His organs have reached their maximum use. Whether you like it or not Muthalika is a dead man walking. Bakili has always wanted to wrestle back power from udf. This is the… Read more »
