Coronavirus forces Malawi President Mutharika to reduce public appearances – State House

President Peter Mutharika has drastically reduced his public appearances as a strict preventive measure against the raging coronavirus pandemic.

Mutharika on lockdown

Presidential spokesperson Mgeme Kalilani said Mutharika will rarely appear in public as his appearances attract more than 100 people.

“The measures he announced as preventive  against the coronavirus also affects him and the cabinet,” said Kalilani.

Kalilani also said that he has limited the number of people he meets every day, ranging from 10 to 20 only every day.

He said this also applies to his cabinet, saying the ministers now adhere to the government strict preventive measures against the coronavirus.

Malawi is one of the few countries in Africa not yet registered any patient of the pandemic but by the coronavirus  has hit neighbouring Mozambique, Zambia, Tanzania and the country’s economic powerhouse, South Africa.

He’s must be infected by ndipo afa pokhala nkhalamba ya zaka eyite.
There is no foreign hospital to run to now and you will get the harsh reality of the poor state of our hospitals.

He means going to UNGA thus the only time u see this joker up and running! Presidents around the world are addressing their people in personal either on tv about Covid19 and he send his press spokesperson on such an issue of national importance! “cowardly” not leadership like it! if communist leaders like Putin wore his PPE and went to see patients….thus love for his people right there.

How many times has he appeared in public since last year’s elections? He is ashamed that he had to use tippex to win 38%. Not even half. Don’t you think ma president amagemulana? They do. No wonder there was zero current or former foreign presidents at his sad inauguration. He is a joke of an old man. He is such a loser. He lost all the dignity from other presidents. Agogo kapumeni mwakalamba.
