Government spokesperson Patricia Kaliati has spit fire at opposition leaders for tearing apart President Peter Mutharika’s state of the nation address.
In an interview, Kaliati described Malawi Congress Party(MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera and Peoples Party (PP) acting president Uladi Mussa as empty headed.
“The opposition have nothing to offer to Malawians. All they know is attack the President for nothing…they do not even have academic qualifications, ask them to show you, they will never show you,” she said.
She said the President delivered the best ever state of the nation address that the country has ever seen.
Chakwera said on Friday the President’s speech was empty.
“All I see is the description of ailments in this country but there is little prescription,” he said.
Mussa described the Sona as flat, saying the President had failed to articulate how his administration would deal decisively with persistent food shortages and the continued dwindling of tobacco prices.
But Kaliati said the two party leaders were just “frustrated individuals.”
