President Peter Mutharika on Saturday blew millions of tax payer money to deflate dissent and rebellion in his ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Mutharika on campaign whistle stop in Lhomee belt

Mutharika was on a whistle stop tour in the Lhomwe belt after reports indicated the  Chilima Movement in his party is slowly gaining momentum in the tea growing areas which the DPP takes as their stronghold.

Out of the eight stops Mutharika made from Thyolo to Mulanje, he did not mention opposition leader Lazarus Chakwera and his Malawi Congress Party.

However, he made scathing attacks on the movement officials: Patricia Kaliati, Noel Masangwi, Paul Chibungu and others.

DPP secretary general Grazider Jeffrey hurled insults at former First Lady Callista Mutharika.

Non of the DPP politicians who spoke during the whistle stop tour mentioned veep Saulos Chilima.

Speaking at the finishing point at Limbuli in Mulanje, Mutharika said the rebellious DPP officials cannot intimidate him.

“I dont fear a two legged person, even a three legged animal or a four legged animal. I dont fear anybody, I only fear God,” he said in a charged tone.

The president said former president Joyce Banda tried to intimidate him but failed and he went on to win the presidential election of 2019.

Mutharika said the DPP is looking for 180 parliamentary seats during the 2019 polls.

Man Peter Muthalika i thought you are a normal person. You have been over seas for how long, and you still behave like bakili muluzi? I feel sorry for you because you have ears but you cannot listern, be carefull because men who treat themselves like strong men ends up like rubbish. Men like goudal gondwe, chaponda and ntaba cant tell you the truth because what they see is jail after your fall. Be cleaver man Peter mwamva!

180? Fools dream. Ngati munthu ukuzimitsa moto pamene umagona ndiye kunja kuli bwanji? The problem is that he is leaning too much on the guys that are themselves hated in the party like Chaponda, Mchacha, B. Phiri, Jefrey, Mtaba, Jappie, Chiumia taking some but a few from the regions south, center and north. Why the gentleman ignores the bedrooms voices of Callista, Kaliati, Winiko, Usi, Chidyaonga, Ntata who has been vocal for a very long time, the list is endless I don’t understand. Follow the voices of the former MPs eg Thyolo Thava. How many are they? Peter, you are… Read more »

Of course President Mutharika is going to go down on record aa one in incumbent president to have blown out unprecedented national budget just for the sake of not wanting to let POWER SLIP OFF his hands ever (but win elections) but with no agenda at all to develop this country. Languishing in poverty with No wonder thugs publicly BRANDISHING guns are still close to the president.
SHAME on THUGS!!!

Bwana, you’re displaying your luck of leadership at the wrong time ie when people are questioning your brain faculties. A true leader will never spew insults like a village savage; you’re better being measured and diplomatic in your response to demonstrate maturity. Secondly, a true leader would have called these DPP members aside and talk to them privately probably one by one and discuss their issues. After the meeting, jut drink from the same calabash and hug/shake hands. Look at what Uhuru Kenyatta and Olaria Odinga have done. Hugged and shook hands in public much to the joy of Kenyans.… Read more »
