DPP justifies Mutharika absence in North Malawi

The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) has justified President Peter Mutharika’s failure to visit the northern region for a year, saying it was for security reasons.

Mzomera: Mutharika will come to visit the north

DPP regional governor for the north Christopher Mzomera Ngwira said this during a parade the party organised in the region ahead of a mega political rally on Saturday.

“We advised him not to visit the northern region because of the violent protests. The violent protests were a security threat to our Head of State,” said Ngwira.

He said the president is set to visit the region anytime soon after this weekend’s DPP/UDF mega rally which is expected to be held by Mutharika’s running mate, Atupele Muluzi.

Mutharika last visited the north in April last year.

All the regions were hit by waves of violent ‘Jane Ansah must go’ violent protests which were aimed at forcing the Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson Jane Ansah and all other commissioners resign from their positions following a court ruling which found them incompetent in the handling of the May 21, 2020 elections.

Malawians have been taken for granted for far too long…Security my foot 🦶!

Malemu Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba

Pitala is a dead man walking. He has chosen mwana wa Mbava yayikulu as his successor. Mlomwe chake chatha apa. APM was born between 1936-1938. Do you think he has the energy to travel up and down. Inu kumpoto just prepare to see his remains aka viewing of the evil 😈 president who has killed the north through the quota system of education.

At least we know that people were paid to attend the parade in Mzuzu. What does one gain to pay people to attend a meeting, just to make those watching on TV that DPP is popular in Mzuzu?

You mean there is violence every day in Mzuzu for more than one year?

Don’t we as Malawian taxpayers pay for the His Excellency’s magnificent motorcade.

This includes multiple 4×4 cars, several armed police vehicles, motorbikes, and plenty of well-trained bodyguards armed with heavy machine guns.

Not to mention the might of the entire Malawi Police Service to block off all the roads for hours on end.

So we are to believe that despite all this, the poor, terrified president is scared of a few unruly protesters armed with little more than stones?

Amazing.

Malawi belong to the citizens

Time is ticking, DPP and UDF alliance kutha ngati makatani ndithu,kkkkkkkkk.

I believe that the president has not been north of the city of Lilongwe since the election last year. That is to say, he has not visited Dowa, Kasungu, and so on in the Centre. I further believe that brief appearances were laid on for propaganda purposes as he has passed through districts like Ncheu on the way to his bolthole in Blantyre.

Am I wrong in my beliefs?
