President Mutharika urges Malawians to vote wisely in May: ‘I don’t care about politics, am development leader’

President Peter Mutharika on Tuesday described the May 21 Tripartite Elections as “watershed” which will determine the country’s future whether Malawians will choose development or politics.

Mutharika: Malawians have a choice to stick with me as a development leader or choose politics
Check mate!Thousands of people welcomed Mutharika in Lilongwe on return from the Southern Region

He, therefore,  said if Malawians want the country’s developmental projects to continue he is the right candidate to continue as Head of State for the next five years until he completes his mandatory term in 2024.

Mutharika was speaking in Lilongwe during a whistle-stop near Old town Mosque where thousands of people gathered to welcome him from Southern Region where he went to visit and sympathise with flood victims.

He said Malawians will either vote for the country to move forward or for the country to retrogress.

“I am not a politician, I do not even care about politics; my agenda is to develop the nation and for continuity of developmental projects by my government,” he said.

He said since 2014 his manifesto promised to bring development to the country and he has lived up to his promises because he has managed to construct roads across the country, people are now living in decent houses under the cement and Malata subsidy program.

He said when he was elected as president in 2014 projects that stalled after president Bingu Wa Mutharika died were completed by his government.

“Projects like the construction of Malawi University of Sciences and Technology (MUST) were abandoned, but when I got into government, I managed to complete the projects,” he said.

Mutharika said opposition leaders always criticize whatever his Government does,  even developmental projects that are beneficial to Malawians.

“They say whatever development I have started once they get into government they will discontinue them; are these the type of leaders you want for this country?” he said.

Mutharika therefore advised Malawians to vote for him on May 21 noting that they should vote in large numbers.

On his return from the southern region president Mutharika made the whistle stops in several spots beginning with Ntcheu District hospital where he cheered patients who were injured in the Kampepuza road accident and from there he proceeded to Dedza District where he addressed the audience before he stopped at Linthipe 2 and  finally left for lilongwe.

DPP will carry the day. No doubt about it. Forget about about MCP PP and Freedom Alliance. Forget about UTM and Tikonze Alliance . Forget about UDF. The signs are clear. These people – DPP are strategically positioned and no Alliance can wrestle power from them . I have seen Mayi Kaliati now is in the villages – her Mulanje West Constituency. Waona game kuti politics is not on face book but in the rural villages thats where votes come from. Mayi limbiikirani chifukwa monga mwanena kale nobody came to assist you with campaign in your constituency. Mukapanda mukasamala you… Read more »

Airsotles definition politic from polis, the affair of the city. If he does not do politics then he does not do development from Aristoterian perspective.
