‘Yes Ndiimanso! Judas Iscariots can leave DPP’: Mutharika gets rapturous welcome on return from UK
After a successful tour of duty to the United Kingdom (UK)’ President Peter Mutharika returned home on Saturday to a rupturous welcome at the Kamuzu International Airport in the Capital City Lilongwe.
And for the first time in four years, there also was a mammoth crowd that gathered at the gates of Kamuzu Palace that welcomed the President.
The arrangement was that it was going to be a usual arrival where he gets off the plane and head straight to State House.
But in both places, the mammoth crowd demanded that he should address them and Mutharika obliged.
At the airport the atmosphere was electrifying as the uncharacteristically large crowd chanted his name in most parts of his brief address he could barely be heard in some cases.
“Aimanso! Aimanso” (He will stand again) chants were deafening as the President started his address, to which he responded “Yes ndiimanso!”
In his speech, Mutharika thanked the people for their continued loyalty and support to the party.
“There are Judas Iscariots in the party who have been claiming that you people have abandoned me. The fact is it is them that are dumping the party.
“Let us work together towards 2019. Show the betrayers that we are united people. Show them that Peter has support,” said the combative Mutharika, looking energetic, fit and well.
The President told the crowd that he and the DPP are set for 2019 Tripartite elections and their catchphrase is ‘victory’.
“In 2012 after Bingu’s death, people abandoned the party. You and I worked together to revive the party and we won in 2014. We will win again in 2019. They are afraid of us. Some are betraying me. They want to create a chance for MCP. They (MCP) know that they cant beat me if I am the one standing.
He added: “I will not allow that. That is why I say let us stop the betrayals, tiwanyenyanyenya, tiwapondaponda, tiwangonjetsa.”
The President called on the members in his party “to stop the habit of betrayal and aim at working together to build the party”.
“I want them to know that I am unshakeable and I am going nowhere. We will destroy them in 2019. We will tear them to pieces and trample upon them,” said Mutharika to defeaning cheers.
At the gates to Kamuzu Palace Mutharika also repeated the message that DPP has faced hard times before and it is unbreakable. He told “the Judas Iscariots” that they can leave the party.
“Some are bent on confusing the party. Those who want to leave the party should leave. The Judas Iscariots can leave. The party suffered in 2012. But you and I worked to revive it and we won on 2014. We will again in 2019,” declared Mutharika.
Mutharika was returning from Britain where he attended the Commonwealth meeting and proceeded on a state visit to Scotland where he afdressed the Scottish Parliament.
On his trip , Mutharika said he has wooed over 50 investors to come and start different businesses in Malawi.
He said he has, among others, signed an agreement with one investor interested to start a sugar manufacturing company in Nkhata Bay, and the owner of Malawi Mangoes promised him that they would like to extend to Salima.
Among other highlights of the trip, the President said he signed an agreement with the First Minister of Scotland to work together to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, and opening a dental and pharmacy school

Yes Mr President, the Judas Iscariots should leave the party. Ena akufanizira zitosi za mademo ndi Julius Malema. Julius Malema left ANC and he is still a force to reckon with. Zathuzi zichoke tione ngati maina awo angakumbukilidwe the next 72 hours. Enawo anadzolowera kulanda katundu wamasiye. Ndata was founded and constructed by the late Bingu and the late Ethel. It is only proper that their biological children inherit the property. Zomwe akufuna enawo ndi kuba kwenikweni. Ndamvanso kuti soon after APM’s arrival with that thunderous welcome, Mr Chakwera has started using dampers/ matewera to avoid the obvious. Chakwera is… Read more »
This has gone beyond party politics Hatton. Malawi is in dire straits and we simply can’t afford to have the type of political leadership we currently are exposed to. Time has come not to support part leaders and political parties alike just so blindly. No wonder the world is saying that Malawi’s Human Development index is one of the lowest in the world; its because of people like you who are pulling the average down.
Zoona Mr Ntaba nawonso analanda katundu wamasiye kusiya ana akuvutika

Za ziii! It’s not funny telling us you’ll destroy MCP. Please tell us you’ll destroy poverty! Tell us how you will destroy blackouts and ensure that rural electrification takes place so that even villagers should start using clean energy and save our trees. Don’t think you’re being funny when you say ndiwanyenyanyenya. If you’re half as intelligent as your papers suggest, please tell us how you’ll turn around our ailing health system. Even those idiots chanting for you can’t afford health care when they fall sick. Their children go to schools that have no learning materials and demotivated teachers. And… Read more »
So who is Judas Iscariot in this case? Is the one very close to the president?
We are now on real campaign battle. MCP n DPP with other small parties let’s GO GO.
But I see MCP with Chakwera carrying day. Chilima the most fearful guy and his APM will not make it with less votes from South most MTL
In APM we trust
Peter Mutharika and his cronies (and many other politicians in Malawi) are political entrepreneurs who steal democracies by oversimplifying Malawi’s complex transformation challenges into cheap slogans that, like mirages to thirsty persons, promise quick resolution of their pain, knowing that such promises won’t materialise. Some of the empty promise makers may, as has been the case with cashgate and continuing state looting, have been part of the problem by diverting resources and policies to their own, private interests, instead of pursuing inclusive development. Such empty promises nefariously exploit people’s hope. They gain ground because groups and communities left behind in… Read more »
Wow. So the DPP made sure it had party followers at the airport on yesterday. Now I know where all the truckloads people were heading to. Akadakhala kuti adabwera pa okha mwina zikadakhala zomveka….
