Opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) President, Peter Mutharika, has claimed that Malawians want him to rule the nation come May next year.
The former ruling party leader observed the citizenry deserve quality leadership to build a stronger nation and that is found in him.
Mutharika was speaking Monday and Tuesday this week when he conducted whistle stop meetings in the country’s Eastern Region.
The DPP 2014 torchbearer, among other areas, visited Malembo, Monkey Bay, Namwera and Mangochi Boma in Mangochi district and Giramu, Nselema, Ntaja, Nsanama and Liwonde in Machinga district considered the stronghold of opposition UDF.
Mutharika said he will ensure that the Marine University, his brother’s dream, to be constructed along the Lake Malawi is fulfilled and provides training in marine science.
He also said he will introduce vessels on Lake Malawi that would help improve transportation and simplify access to the shore.
While citing development activities his brother late president Bingu wa Miutharika initiated, Peter assured Malawians once elected he would continue with “all the works of my late brother.”
And writing on his Facebook page christened ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ about the visit to the Eastern Region, Mutharika expressed his satisfaction with the people who attended his rallies.
“I am overwhelmed by the happy people of Malawi especially those from the Eastern Region whom I have had the privilege of spending time with in the past two days.
“Machinga, Mangochi, Namwera, Monkey Bay, are some of the places I visited. My visit at the Monkey Bay Hospital reminded me of the daily needs that Malawians are looking for in the local hospitals. They need food, they need medicine and they need professional care which is what my government starting from May 2014 will make sure to provide,” wrote Mutharika.
Malawi needs my leadership and Malawians deserve a better sustainable food reserve to build a stronger nation, claimed Mutharika.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
