Mutharika echoes DPP ‘Nyekhwe’ warning: ‘Calmness not stupidiy, Nalikukuti can bite’

President Peter Mutharika on Sunday echoed the now popular Nyekhwe song by Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) supporters that those who plan to make Malawi an ungovernable State of lawless to derail Mutharika’s development agenda will be dealt with.

UDF’s Muluzi speaking as Mutharika listens

“Yes awona Nyekhwe,” said Mutharika at a jam-packed Njamba Freedom Park rally jointly organised with United Democratic Front (UDF) in Blantyre when DPP supporters chorused the song while he was making his speech.

The DPP and UDF supporters  erupted to sing in  Malawi’s lingua franca, Chichewa: “Olimbana ndi Adad awona Nyekhwe! (“Those opposing President Peter Mutharika we will deal with them!”)

In his speech, Mutharika  issued a stern warning to leaders of Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC), Malawi Congress Party (MCP) and United UTM Party over plans to cause anarcy in the country

Mutharika said he has tolerated enough of stupidity and lawlessness and that time has come to defend the nation.

“My clamness should not be taken for granted; when I am quiet, it does not mean I am stupid. Even Nalikukuti [ a non-venomous snake], if provoked, bites.

“So, enough is enough and should they try it this time, I will react and in full force,” Mutharika warned.

Mutharika said he witnessed the sad effects of the July 20, 2011 demonstrations where 20 people lost their lives and that he did not want to react for fear of losing lives.

“It still pains me when I remember about the death of innocent Malawians in 2011, but I will not tolerate this anymore.

“No one is above the law and Timothy Mtambo, Dr. Saulos Chilima and Dr. Lazarous Chakwera are not bigger than government,” he said.

He said should the HRDC, MCP and UTM who plan a State residence shut down on March 25 overcome the Malawi Police Service and Malawi Defense Force; the demonstrators will meet the UDF and DPP supporters.

“People have been killed, property destroyed; if they think I am joking let them try, we will meet there and they better wake up and smell the coffee,” Mutharika said.

In his remarks, UDF president Atupele Muluzi said UDF chose an electoral alliance with DPP because the past nine months Mutharika has shown that he is patient and peace –loving person among other attributes.

“We opted for DPP because of its political values and ideologies such as peace and stability, democracy and also development . This is what UDF hopes for,” he said.

He also said Mutharika had hinted  in April  2017  that the two parties should work together to develop the country.

Mutharika’s rally at Njamba Freedom Park was the first after the DPP and UDF entered into an alliance on February 16, 2020 in Lilongwe.

DPP and UDF have a history of working together.

During Mutharika’s first five-year term, DPP went into a working arrangement with UDF to guarantee votes in the National Assembly and support the government’s legislative agenda. In that period, Muluzi held various ministerial positions, including Health and Population the last time he was in Cabinet just before the May 21 2019 elections.

Mr President do not listen to your clueless advisors who failed to secure you a clean vote into office. If you act stupidly know that prison is waiting for you. Politics of one party state will not work. In fact Mr President you are surrounded by sycophants. You are being misled and its unfortunate that your politician wife cannot notice this. You winning or losing the next election will mean nothing. Start being the nice guy because I a not seeing you president after May 2020.

Muntharika is the most stupid, useless old fool i have ever seen, even his supporters knows that for sure, they only continue fooling him around because of tax payers money he buys them with. If he knows he’s got support then why not signing off every demand his detractors are asking for and tell them “bring it on”? Kamuzu was more powerful than any other leader who ever ruled malawi that he could easily bend any law to favour his leadership but noop, he called for a referendum to test the loyalty of the people and when he saw the… Read more »

We have heard this “I will deal with you with full force” for a million times! It is no different! You are stupid kumene because at the thick of things, you chose to hide at Chikoko Bay and kumayenda misewu yamthengo kuli kuzemba when people called on you to acton Jane Ansah. It is obvious you want her to do it again. Malawi wathu siwoyendetsera chibwenzi chanucho. We want action not threats. Unalephera kupoletsa moto wa Academic Freedom, ndiye izi ukwanitsa iwe headless chicken?

Seriously Chem’bwana this is boring. Why can’t you boys at Nyasatimes summarise everything that was said at the rally and give the readers one piece. Start with Gilizrda (Whatever they call her), to Atupele, to Mchacha to Dausi.
Next you will be bringing us something like “Ndale sizifuna phuma” Says Atupele. And there we go back again to Njamba. Come on man!

Fraud DPP government is no bigger than Malawian people. We will fight to the end and ensure that the DPP and UDF dynasties come to their natural death.
