A person between 80 and 89 years is called an octogenarian.

Mutharika, who lost to Chakwera in the court-sanctioned fresh presidential election held on June 23, was born on July 18, 1940.

He celebrated his birthday at his retirement home in Mangochi, describing his 80th birthday as a great in his life.

Chakwera extended his best wishes in a message issued by his office.

“The State President of the Republic of Malawi, His Excellency Dr Lazarus Chakwera, wishes the former president Prof Arthur Peter Mutharika, a happy 80th birthday,” reads the brief message from State House.

Mutharika, who served as a one-term president following his loss to Chakwera, took to Twitter to acknowledged people’s support towards him in his life.

“Today is another day as I have added another year on the cards.

“I thank the Almighty God for taking me this far and all of you for always being with me throughout my academic and political journey,” tweeted Mutharika.

Some Malawians were taking on social media to wish Mutharika a happy birthday.

Many others took the moment to reflect on the Mutharika administration administration and his public persona.

Chakwera should focus on running the country- which so far he has failed miserably. There is no need for him to ironic- he (Kandigus) is also heading there- just a matter of time

Chakwera has been in office for three weeks only and you say he has failed. Are you are ok in your head or you’re a cadet?

God is keeping you in order that you repent. You have never ever gone into house of the Lord and Pray Him. But being arrogant to God and people of Malawi ulape Muthalika.

Mind your tongue Maunits,I beg you to first forgive yourself and later forgive Muthalika and please do not jump a gun. God controls everything,in fact even our hearts, to soften them or harden them. BUT I FOR ONE AM SURE OF THIS ONE THING no not even ONE MAN chooses to be BORN not even a mother or a Father BUT God and God only. The Salvation Of Man is sorely in the Hands of God. He visits through the HOLY SPIRIT regardless of earthly standing. I assure you most of religions of the world do not meet God’s requirement… Read more »
