Malawi govt in lavish expenses over Mutharika inauguration

Government has booked all paramount chiefs at Mount Soche Hotel in Blantyre and senior chiefs at Victoria Hotel for the inauguration of Peter Mutharika who has been controversially re-elected as president.

President Mutharika inaguration on Friday and DPP victory rally celebrations on Sunday at Njamba

The inauguration of Mutharika and newly elected vice president Everton Chimulirenji takes place on Friday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre and on Sunday the two will hold a rally at Njamba Freedom Park.

According to a memo seen by Nyasa Times to all district commissioners and council chief executive officers, accommodation for the paramount chiefs has been booked at Mount Soche Hotel and senior chiefs at Victoria Hotel.

“Please take note that the council is requested to provide transport,” says the memo in part.

Mutharika narrowly won the presidential race with 1, 940, 709 votes against Malawi Congress Party’s Lazarus Chakwera who got 1, 817, 740 and UTM’s Saulos Chilima’s 1, 028, 258.

The opposition are challenging the poll result, arguing Malawi Electoral Commission officials manipulated the results in favour of Mutharika.

Dziko la anthu opusa zotsatila zake ndizimenezi. There is always money to massage egos of politicians but no money for medicine or decent infrastructure.

Its only in Malawi that such broad day light stealing of votes can be tollerated. I have never heard of any country on earth where election figures are tippexed and its allowed that the results are genuine. where as, when a voter makes s a tick that crosses the edges of the voting slip the vote is considered nul and void. Malawians, we are at the mercy of a few selfish individuals who don’t love their country but personal gain.
