The Malawi leader made the remarks on Sunday at Nchalo trading centre in Chikwawa during a whistle-stop tour of the inspection of development projects in Lower Shire.

Mutharika said the Democratic Progress Party (DPP) administration has lined up a number of projects such as the construction of roads, railway lines, universities, technical colleges, water facilities and hospitals to change the face of the country and improve the livelihoods of ordinary people.

“All these projects will not only change the outlook of Malawi but contribute to all aspects of development in the country.

Suffice to highlight that my government has set-aside K8 billion in the 2019-2020 budget to be tabled in parliament soon. This money will ensure that eligible youth have access to loans for executing different businesses that seek to uplift their livelihoods,” he said.

Mutharika called for unity of purpose among people regardless of party afflictions to join his government in implementing the development activities.

“This is not time to vandalize road infrastructures or demolish people’s houses as what opposition parties are doing. Rather, let us work together to move the nation from abject poverty to prosperity,” he said.

Member of Parliament for Chikwawa Central, Salim Bagus hailed Mutharika for his determination to develop the country by implementing different infrastructures.

Earlier in the day, President Mutharika toured Nyachipere Bridge, Nsanje Boma, Bangula Trading Centre and Ngabu Trading Centre among other sites to address the people.

He’s an illegitimate leader with no mandate to govern Malawi hence this man is in denial the general masses didn’t vote for him. It’s very unfortunate that he’s being misguided by greedy beneficiaries who’re not patriotic Malawians. You cannot sell rotten meat even if you try to spice it & thats the free advice for you Sir.

APM is the chosen Leader of this Nation whether one likes it or not – Chakwera who is likened to Jonah of of Bible because he chose to run away from what God had called him for – and he is yet to repent from what he has done or else he will face the fate of WRONG DECISION. The sad thing is that him being the spiritual man he is not able to see what are the circumstances of his choice – shame he has completly stopped listening to the commandments of God and insteady he is following the… Read more »

The reconciliatory speech of a statesman determined to work with anyone to develop Malawi. This includes fake accent ex-reverend Nyolonyo Yona Lazarus Chakwera and Arafat Hamdani. Take it or leave it you two rascals.

It’s not a crime to have a fake accent. However, it’s a crime to tippex votes when a majority of people don’t want this gogo. Tippex president no wonder he is your president in the south. Let him stay there.

Mps please don’t approve any budget until the case in court is concluded, its just money for another cashgate. We don’t trust thieves to manage our countries purse. Let only hospitals and essential services continue running.
