Mutharika vows never to allow MCP back in government: Let them remain in opposition

President Peter Mutharika has vowed never to allow the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) back in government,  because of its backward political policies that see the oldest political grouping in Malawi opposing each and every policy the government undertakes irrespective of benefits to the rural poor masses.

Mutharika:I will never allow MCP to rule Malawi again

Speaking during a whistle stop campaign tour of Dowa district to gunner support for his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) in the May 21  Presidential, Parliamentary and Local Government Elections, President Mutharika said the DPP will win the elections, citing the progressive and people centred agenda that the party promotes.

Mutharika said MCP as well as all opposition parties have no alternative agenda for the nation other than just satisfying their egos to get into government.

“Us in DPP will continue with our development. Our mission is to eradicate poverty and improve lives of the people by making sure that you have access to food, good roads, proper houses that do not leak,  schools, community colleges, social cash transfer, women empowerment programmes and many others,” said Mutharika.

President Mutharika who is seeking reelection for a mandatory final five year term, has so far taken his campaign to the rural areas in the central region, attracting massive crowds in an area believed to be MCPstronghold.

Apart from voting for him in the presidential poll, Mutharika urged people to ensure that they  also elect DPP MPs and DPP councilors over opposition candidates whom he said do not work to serve people’s interests but their party leader’s intersts.

“In 2014 you the people of Dowa supported me in the presidential vote but you errored in the parliamentary and local government you only gave me one member of Parliament. But this time I know you are giving me all MPs in Dowa. I thank you for this support,” said Mutharika.

The tour of Dowa, took Mutharika to Nalunga Trading Centre in Dowa East Constituency, Dowa Boma in Dowa South East, Chimbuli Trading Centre in Dowa North and Mathimba Trading Centre in Dowa West Constituency.

The MCP which ruled Malawi with an iron fist for 31 years under the notorious one party government led by late president Hastings Kamuzu Banda, this year clocks 25 years in opposition.

The oldest presidential candidate must be dreaming, did he see the crowds that attended the MCP rally at Mponela.This time DPP will have zero MP from Dowa.Now that Peter Muthalika is 75 + 5 (80) old, it is very obvious that the numbers that will vote for him will substantially reduce coupled with the fact that Muthalika has proved that he is not that good as a learned professor, look at Muthalika’s choice of running mate, look at the way he managed the corruption in Govt,at ESCOM and many Govt Parastals?What about lomwelisation policy?

But what would happen if the majority voted for MCP. Would our president veto? Does our constitution give him the powers to veto in this case?

distugusting is not evena word close enough to desrcibe this old idiot we call our president. There’s no medication in our hospitals, no electricity or water, women die while giving birth. He continue to steal money and enrich himself and his cabinet while the Malawian community suffers. He has to be removed. Other parties are not just looking forward to have power, they really want to change this country. i wish Malawiana people could wake up for once and make history in voting for people with great intensions of our country not this Mbuzi old animal.

You won’t stop MCP taking over Government. You are just under pressure Mr President. You will be out of Government on 22nd May 2019. It’s just two weeks, you may as well start packing. I hope you won’t collapse
