Mutharika has failed to lead Malawi, governance record poor – Coalition

President Peter Mutharika has failed to lead Malawi, especially when it comes to governnce, the Malawi Human Rights Defenders Coalition has  said.

President Mutharika: His administration ratedpoorly on governance

“This administration has badly performed on good governance. We have several examples on this; cases of corruption have been the highest ever. The cases of abuse of funds are escalating,” chairperson of the Malawi Human Rights Defenders Coalition, Timothy Mtambo said in a published interview.

Mtambo noted that the way the Mutharika government handled the electoral reforms, also buttresses how the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration has failed in upholding the principle of democratic governance.

“The government was not transparent in the whole process, they did everything secretly and the bills were only presented in parliament after subduing to the force from CSOs.

“And despite themselves presenting the Bills in Parliament, the government ironically worked hard to shoot down the electoral Reforms Bills. This was a slap in the face of Malawians and to say the least this is hypocrisy of the highest order. All this just proves that the current administration is nowhere close to transformational leadership,” he said.

Mtambo said the DPP government has been “full of contradictions” such that it performs contrary to what it has put on paper.

He noted that the government launched the Peace Policy but the same has been “heavily massacred” by the same government.

“We have seen political violence involving members of the ruling party but no serious action has been taken, including just condemnations from the leadership,” he said.

Mtambo said the performance of State-owned businesses like Electricity Generation Company (Egenco) and Electricity Supply Corporation of Malawi (Escom), has been so poor and appointments of members of the boards and executive management have been against procedure and the law – apparently there has been concerns of nepotism.

Government spokesman Nicholous Dausi has his dismissed the comments saying they are “too ridiculously subjective, illogical and flawed” for anyone to take seriously.

Loser nation. Loser president. Loser people.

You can’t remove us in 2019. You are too young. Mwachepa. We will scatter all those ballot boxes on roads after voting. We will jam the National Tally Centre so that it only tarries fake data after midnight if at all such data will be there for Zodiak to announce. We will make sure that the National Tally Centre is still in Blantyre near our heartland Ndata so that our cadets can harass all opossition and kick their asses without fear of reprisals from the other tribes. We will ensure that our cadets never sleeps while you stay tuned to… Read more »

Why is Mtambo’s story being re-written so many times? There is need to improve but it s not worse as potrayed by these CSOs.


failed govt indeed


When CSOs fail to get bribed by the so called corrupt government, they bark at every tree like a rabid dog! We know many CSOs want to tarnish every positive effort by this regime…regardless single progress they may see just because they have not been bribed. We are also aware of the many donor dollars that have been abused by the CSOs but they can’t mention it.
