Malawi leader congratulates Boris Johnson on becoming UK’s new Prime Minister

President Peter Mutharika has congratulated Boris Johnston on becoming the new prime minister of the United Kingdom.

According to a statement released by the ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Mutharika hoped Johnston’s ascendancy to the higher office will further strengthen relations that exists between the two countries.

“Your election manifests the confidence and trust that the people of the [United Kingdom] Great Britain have in you,” says the brief congratulatory message.

United Kingdom is Malawi’s major traditional donor apart from the United States of America and the European Union.

Theresa May, Johnston’s immediate predecessor resigned on Wednesday over Brexit after Johnston won the Conservative Party elections on Tuesday.

Brexit issue has produced two casualty prime ministers, David Cameron and May and analysts say if Johnston fails to handle the matter well, he might be another casualty.

He has promised to pull his country out of the European Union on October 31 by any means necessary, saying he will defy “the doubters, the doomsters and the gloomsters” by completing Brexit with a deal on deadline.

Standing outside 10 Downing Street after visiting the Queen, he gave a speech infused with patriotic pronouncements, saying the “people who bet against Britain are going to lose their shirts”.

I think Mr president you need to copy how patriotic the leadership of great Britain is.

If the public is not happy with your leadership style then you resign amicably as Theresa May the prime minister of UK did .

So here in Malawi, the public is not happy with Jane Ansar the way she handles Election so let her resign and pave way for smooth investigation of what happens on 21st May.

In a population of 65 million people, this guy was “voted into power” by 96,000 members of a political party. He is NOT trusted by the vast majority of the people. He is hated and despised my the majority of the population.

Just as in Malawi, leaders in UK do not represent the views of the majority. They have their own self interest and political agenda at heart. The voting system where the first past the post takes all is flawed and leaves us with Governments that more people are against than in favour of.
