Mutharika busy preparing national buffet, said aide Ben Phiri

Special adviser to Malawi President Peter Mutharika, Ben Phiri has responded to the calls from various sections of the society asking the Head of State to come out of the cocoon and address Malawians on labyrinth of social and economic dire straits the country in going through.

Ben Phiri: Mutharikas special aide says 'soon and very soon the President will address the nation'

Ben Phiri: Mutharikas special aide says ‘soon and very soon the President will address the nation’

Malawians are asking Mutharika to intervene in various contentious issues which include widespread strikes by workers demanding higher pay and calls by civil society organizations to the first lady to refund the money which her Beautify Malawi suspiciously took from the coffers of Nation Aids Commission.

Malawi is also currently experiencing increase in prices of goods and services on daily basis due to the depreciation of the local currency, the Kwacha.

But speaking during the ‘Straight Talk’ interview program on the privately owned Capital Radio Tuesday evening, Phiri said Mutharika is indeed missing on the public podium because he is currently “ busy in the kitchen cooking something to give Malawians.”

Said Phiri:“The reason why he is not getting out is because he is busy right now in the kitchen cooking and by the end of the day I can assure you fellow Malawians that we will enjoy the pudding, we will enjoy the food that will come out of it.  Soon and very soon the President will be talking to you fellow Malawians.”

Phiri pleaded with Malawians to give President Mutharika  ample time until he finishes preparing the national buffet on development and economic progress.

He however did not explain when Mutharika will finish his “cooking”.

“Soon and very soon the President will be talking to you fellow Malawians. All I can do is to plead with you to give a bit of time to the President so that he gets in all sectors of the economy and social problem and by the end of the day things will be better.”

He said Mutharika is “working hard” to address problems facing Malawians.

Mr president will you please write a list of Ben Phiri’s duties as a personal assistant? Because you and him seem not knowing what are the duties of a personal assistant, he is not supposed to comment on any matter related to your office as a president because you have a press officer there in the opc so anything related to your duties as the president should come from such a person and that is what we are expecting from you guys,it shows that there is a conflict of job description in your office between your office staff and your… Read more »

Be careful with insulting the President. No need for that. Be wise you are cursing yourself. Why cant you have constructive criticism? If you have ideas to help Malawians please tell us.
