Speaking at Mpamba after the inauguration of Mzuzu-Nkhatabay Road which has been named after him, Mutharika described his leadership as transformative.

He said there  areseveral  development programs which the ruling  Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government has lined up, saying by December, the government would have finished five major roads.

“We are changing things in Malawi, this is transformation, we are laying good foundation for the future,” he said.

The splinter group of DPP tout Saulos Chilima, the vice- president who is vying for the presidency as a transformation leader.

But Mutharika said he is focued on road improvement and efficient transportation system, which he said  is important for the country’s economic development.

He said his government is committed to improve road infrastructure in the country to stimulate economic development.

Mutharika said a total of 17 roads are under construction countrywide and are at various stages.

“Currently, government is constructing both rural and urban roads. Some of the roads under construction include Lilongwe-Kasiya-Santhe, Zomba-Jali-Chitakale and Liwonde-Mangochi.

“In the North, we have Karonga-Songwe, Njakwa-Livingstonia and Jenda-Edingeni. On Thursday, I will lay foundation stone for Bolero-Nyika-Chitipa Road,” Mutharika said.

Turning to the opposition, Mutharika said he would crushe and stump on all the opposition combined of Lazarus Chakwera, Chilima and Joyce Banda in the polls.

“I will crush them, they know that, that is why they fear me,” he said.

Malawi is due to hold Tripartite elections on May 21 2019.

its 2018 trump or china doesn’t celebrate new roads they passed that stage in past decades waste of time and resources thus normal government responsibilities leave the DC to be doing thus and focus on major issues like sound economic policies and major reforms to strategically put malawi on prosperity road 2018 .

No, bwana APM. The opposition does not fear you. It’s the other way round. You are having sleepless nights. What more with Chilima movement splitting DPP into unmanageable pieces you can’t put together. That is why you are blurbing nonsense now and then.

Traditionally, roads or structures are generally named after our departed Greats. In my view the road should have been named after the sons of Nkhstabay such as Aleke, Manowa or Ching’oli and you are nowhere near qualifying as one of these. Definitely APM, from Lhomweland, is a misfit for the Mzuzu-Nkhatabay road.

When Malawians are talking of transformation, they don’t mean the construction of poor quality “highways” and main roads whose life span is no more than 3 years. When Malawians are talking of transformation they mean the following: Ethical, moral, critical thinking and problem solving political leaders at the helm of the governing party who would carry dreams and aspirations of Malawians. A leader whose dreams are impossible for ordinary Malawians to even imagine. Transform to Malawians mean that there’s no nepotism, tribalism and regionalism and instead unity in the diversity of culture; Malawians whose dreams are aligned to the common… Read more »

Mr President, if you were so confident of your position to win the next tripartite elections and crash the opposition; why is it that you masterminded the defeat of the proposed amendments to Electoral Laws from First Past The Post to 50 + 1. You were scared of either losing the elections or that you’d forced to go into coalition government. Looting would have then be very very difficult in your last 5 years of rule. It is a known fact that you have planted key individuals and experts to manipulate the vote counting to your favour to go just… Read more »

This is why we need to change Malawi politics to that of servant, selfless leadership as opposed to selfish and unethical type of political leadership which naturally is characterised by corruption. There are a number of countries which have achieved strong governance leadership clean of corruption and these countries are doing very well in and outside the continent.
