Mutharika was speaking at Nyambadwe School Ground in Ndirande township after inaugurating construction work for Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers stadiums.

“By developing sports in the country, I am directly developing the youth. I am set to empower young people in the country that is why out of 32 cabinet ministers 16 are young people,” said Mutharika.

The Malawi leader described the two teams as a hub of football in the country saying for over half a century, they have contributed great footballers for both Malawi and continent of Africa.

Mutharika also seized the moment to condemn political violence in the country. He said since launched violent protests, the country has lost a whopping K62 billion.

Taking his turn, Football Association of Malawi president Walter Nyamilandu thanked President Mutharika for the project saying it would go a long way into empowering the two teams financially.

“You have not only given the two teams a permanent home, but you have also given them a permanent source of income. The football fraternity will forever be grateful” said  Nyamilandu.

During the function, Mutharika donated two buses to the two teams.

Big Bullets stadium is being constructed at Moneymen in Zingwangwa, while the Wanderers one is at Soche

It saddens me that there are actually some Malawians that believe this man and tout him as a good leader. Even his USA students are on record questioning his qualifications. And from his leadership skills I doubt he even has a first degree. It was probably much easier back in the 60’s to forge qualifications. It is obvious he does not understand the law or even the basics of our constitution.

That’s a great move no any former or any prospective President has ever thought of developing football in the manner you have done. Only the jealous and the fool can object on this fact – As for me thumbs up for you APM.

Yes thank you mr president, but I have already made my decision to vote for Tonse alliance and this divisive gesture will not change anything.

We have so many football clubs in this country all of which are struggling financially, Bata and Wanderers are the top teams in this country and this donation will just give them an added advantage that will negatively impact on the other teams to complete fairly.

Stop divide and rule tactics to achieve your evil political agendas.
