Mutharika tells opposition leaders to think Malawi first

President Peter Mutharika has urged the opposition to think Malawi first, saying the current wave of protests which leads to destruction of property will take years to rebuild.

President Mutharika: The destruction we have caused in the last few months will take us years to rebuild this country

Mutharika said this on Wednesday at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe when he promoted two Malawi Defence Force (MDF) soldiers who went missing in the Democratic Republic of Congo but managed to return to their camp during peacekeeping mission.

“I would like to call upon opposition leaders that, for once, just for once, they must think about this country instead of thinking of themselves.

“The destruction we have caused in the last few months will take us years to rebuild this country,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika said the opposition leaders, whom he did not mention by name, have decided to ignore all the democratic and legal processes that were built since the rejection of one party autocratic rule.

“These people are vandalizing schools band terrorizing school children; attacking innocent people in their homes, breaking cars of innocent Malawians and stealing from shops in organised looting. They are taking away our property,” said the President.

As he spoke, anti-Jane Ansah protests were in progress just a few kilometres away from the Kamuzu Palace organised by Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to force the Malawi Electoral Commission chairperson accused of presiding over a messy election whose result was manipulated in favour of Mutharika himself.

APM you are the one to think Malawi first before your greed for power and enrichment of Lomwes through corruption and nepotism under your permission and watch!

Why do you behave like the Opposition is in control? Thus why you can not initiate dialogue as the likes of Nelson Mandela who was a true statesman

Kkkkkkkkkk you cant bribe the Generals with promotions if there is an individual in Malawi who doesn’t think about Malawi is him Mutharika & it’s not surprising cos he has a Green Card. 40 solid years away from Malawi how can he love Malawi? People you think that Peter Mutharika, if it were not that Chair Muluzi put his brother Bingu on the throne, Peter could have come back to Malawi? Big No!!!! He couldn’t have come. He doesn’t care about Malawi BUT the good life that Malawi is giving him more than a teacher period.

In my view, it is the other way round, i.e. it’s the opposition and HRDC, supported by 62%+ Malawians who rejected you who are putting Malawi first. On the contrary, it is your greed, among other things, which is putting the country several steps back.
It is you, sir, who is clinging to power by using everything at your disposal, police and so-called cadets, included, to terrorise and scare the people.
