Mutharika warns politicians against dividing people on cultural lines

President Peter Mutharika has warned people to be on the look-out against politicians whom he accused of using culture or culture identity to divide people.

Mulhakho wa Alhomwe Festival for 2019:  President Mutharika with Finance Minister Joseph Mwanamvekha

Mutharika said this at Chonde in Mulanje during the commemoration of Mulhako wa Alhomwe annual cultural festival.

“Politicians should not use culture to send people to beat or kill other people, that is not Malawian,” said Mutharika.

Mutharika’s sentiments come at a time when the president himself has come under intense criticism for using the Mulhako wa Alhomwe to promote his political agenda and that of his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

During the occaassion, Mulhako wa Alhomwe chairman Leston Mulli openly said he is political and supports President  Mutharika and his DPP.

Mutharika urged Malawians to be peaceful and love each other.

“I know there are some people who don’t want peace. They have gone on rampage destroying schools, burning them,” he said.

He then asked his supporters not to retaliate when attacked by people sent by what he called failed and frustrated politicians.

AN EXAMPLE OF DIVIDING THE MALAWIAN PEOPLE IS BY CHEATING THEM ON THE MUCH NEEDED UNIVERSITY OF MOMBELA IN THE NORTHERN REGION.

APM is in the forefront dividing people on everything: Racial, Cultural, Nepotism, Share of Employment, you name it.

How can a president of the Nation be a Patron of one Cultural grouping.? He should be a Patron of Malawians and not just Lhomwes

Since the launch of Mulhako by the late President Bingu, this establishment has been marred with favoritism/ tribalism. It’s very clear they remain unrepentant of tribal politics. They’re cannot speak healing when they’re a cause of the current political impasse. You cannot advise other politicians when you still practice tribalism.

This is not a cultural celebration but a political gimmick …Remember Nansete,a Lhomwe chief neglected for talks with Chakwela and we all know the rightfull paramount is the youthful Chimaliro but because he is not blue,green or red that is why he stays on the sidelines. Culture from the word “cult” is a private practice for a particular group of people and it is not a competition. Lomwe people must stand out and speak against partisan politics because these politicians are using the tribe for a bad end. At the end of a day DPP and Lhomwe are becoming inseparable… Read more »
