Mutharika lashes out at ‘nonsense’ critics over ground breaking ceremonies

President Peter Mutharika has hit at his critics who say he is busy with ground breaking ceremonies for development programs when the actual projects are failing to take off.

Speaking for the first time after Livingstonia Synod moderator Levi Nyondo accused Mutharika of concentrating on ground breaking ceremonies instead of ensuring that the projects take off, Mutharika said his critics are blind.

“This is nonsense. These people are blind, they don’t live here in Malawi. They cannot see what is happening out there. They should come out of their comfort offices to see the massive development projects out there,” said Mutharika.

He was speaking in Salima during the ground breaking ceremony of a Chinese funded cotton factory.

Nyondo said President Mutharika presided over the ground breaking ceremonies of Mombera University in Mzimba and a teachers college in Rumphi, projects which are yet to take off.

But Mutharika said his administration has fulfilled most of its campaign promises in the run up to the 2014 general election and has embarked on new development programs.

Speaking earlier, the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) secretary general Grazider Jeffrey said the Mutharika administration has development projects spread across the country.

“Those who say the government is just developing the south lack honesty, this is not true. This cotton company is not in Blantyre or Thyolo. This is the third time that the president has been here to launch develooment programs,” she said.

She said the DPP would crash the opposition during the 2019 general election because of its development agenda for the country.

Any fair thinking person would be doing him/ herself justice to just ignore whatever comes out of this president’s mouth when on the podium.
It only makes sense to himself and his henchmen. Forget he will ever produce measurable stats to support his claims, he cannot even cite 3 or 4 infrastructures or the so called developmental projects he claims to have done since started throwing stones all over the country.
All he know best is to legitimise theft and plundering of our taxpaye’s money.
HOPELESS cohorts of thieves!!!

Your Excellency Professor Dr Peter Mutharika, wakutsina khutu ndi m’nansi. Livingstonia Synod Moderator (Levi Nyondo) is a just a mouthpiece for many of his congregants. Please, please don’t ignore what he is saying. There is a saying that goes like “Kufa amayamba ndi makutu kusamva”. If these assessments by Malawians or Levi Nyondo are unfair then all you need to do is to provide Malawians the statistics on how many projects were promised/listed in MGDSI – III, Malawi Poverty Reduction Program, the number of ground-breaking ceremonies/projects versus those that have started and/or completed in the North, Central and Southern regions.… Read more »

I liked what Bingu used to say let works of my hands bear me testimony. What is there to show when everyone can see that the country is going down. Osamangolubwalubwa Mr Ibu. Your administration is the worst Malawi has ever had.

At least he was a lecturer so he knows how to package an argument. Unless he thinks that Malawians aren’t worth the trouble.
