”In two years time, Malawi will not be where it is today and by the time I leave office in 2024, Malawi will be developed beyond recognition,” he said.

He was speaking on Friday in Karonga when he visited people hit by floods.

He said all development projects in the north would be undertaken, saying the Livingstonia-Njakwa road construction will start soon.

Mutharika told Malawians to ignore the opposition saying they have nothing to offer Malawians.

He said the opposition were bent at confusing Malawians, saying most of political parties are now closing shop.

“They should just come and join us, we should just be one party although I don’t like one party system, good bye orange,” said Mutharika mocking the third largest political party in Parliament, the Peoples Party.

He said he came to power because of the will of Malawians and the will of God and urged Malawians to walk with him until they reach the promised land.

He then officially opened  the Karonga-Chitipa road  renamed to Bingu Highway.

Peter,you do not compare yourself with Paul Kagame in a sense that he is a dedicated and patriotic leader.It could be tragically impossible for a leader of your characters to drive a country which was brutally devastated by genocidal war never seen in novel history of our continent,to prosperity and stability.On his speech,after defeating the marauding Hutus militarily,Kagame warned his people of the dangers of TRIBALISM which of course is a scourge of Africa.Peter,since you and your corrupt and tribalistic brother Bingu voted into powers erroneously of course,tribalism has reached its apogee and you do not warn your people to… Read more »

Peter Muthalika cannot be compared to Paul Kagame in a number of ways: (i) Kagame is serious about the fight against corruption unlike Peter who has made Bakili Muluzi who is facing corruption charges his political bed fellow or whatever adjectives one can use.There is little progress on the over 7 years old Bakili Muluzi MK1.7 billion donor money fraud and corruption case.Government pressure on the lead prosecutor and ACB Deputy Director General Reyneck Matemba led to his dramatic rescusal thereby delaying the case even further and bringing the Peter Muthalika administrations seriousness about the fight against corruption into question… Read more »

Why are you failing to pursue JB if you want to deal with corruption. In Rwanda they have set themselves standards which they are meeting. The police force is decent. In our country the police bed with thieves. The amount of aid we received while your brother was a leader most of it can not be accounted for. Come on Peter people like you who have lived in western democracies should bring something appetizing on the table yet it looks like it is an ordinary villager who is in charge. Really?

O………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….O The Kagame you are talking about had a vision for his country. Among others . . . . . . he had in place targets and timeline within which to attain them. . . . he had in place a performance assessment for his ministers and those that failed to deliver, were fired forthwith. . . . he revamped the civil service and motivated the civil servants hence improved efficiency. . . . he tightened national security and foreign direct investment flew to Rwanda effortlessly. . . . he intensified the fight again corruption, not just talking as you,… Read more »

I agree with you analyst. A president who appoints his cabinet based on allegiance ‘atandimanga awa sanandisiye’ can not develop a country.Over 50% of his cabinet is composed of people who are tired and sit in ministerial office just to make the ends meet. With Gondwe, Kalirani, Kaliati, Chaponda etc mmmm further outlook, thundery showers of economic hardships will persist
