Prof Hussein warns Mutharika to tame his language

Political scientist Professor Mustapha Hussein has asked former President Peter Mutharika to guard against public pronouncements, which could bleed disunity and generate into chaos in the country.

Hussein was reacting to the remarks Mutharika made at a press conference he held in Mangochi on Sunday.

Mustapha Hussein: Mutharika must watch his language

The political analyst said the former President, being a lawyer himself, should be the first one to know that declaring a President illegitimate and illegal is wrong and that only the courts can do such declaration.

Hussein said: “This call could have not come from Former President Malawi Governments in Malawi come in and go through the ballot. Once the Malawi Electoral Commission has declared some as a winner, no one can challenge that. It’s only the Judiciary, which can declare and interpret something illegal.”

Hussein said such remarks from Mutharika has capacity to generate violence because every time followers take words from their leaders.

Speaking when he addressed the press conference, Mutharika described the Chakwera administration illegal and that the government does not respect principles of rule of law and human rights.

Mutharika, who was flanked by George Chaponda, David Kambalame, Aliki Mwanza, Charles Mchacha, Imran Mtenje , accused the government of lacking policy direction.

On economy, Mutharika said it is sad that the Malawi economy is in a poor state citing examples of failing Kwacha and high inflation rate.

Mr. Former President, You are a disgraced person. The spoiler. The dormant. The stagnant. You failed in several things and now you are coming in as a wise man. Too bad. Always wise Men bring in ideas of interest to the country. To remind you a bit. You failed to end the impulse at Chancellor college. All the falling of Kwacha and all the suffering of Malawians you are the contributing person. You were sleeping while driving the country now today your brothers are trying to undress your mistakes and make things done you are against them. What type of… Read more »

Nothing wrong here. He is in the opposition. He needs to do that so the govt party does not relax or fail to deliver what it promised the people. Everyone has freedom of speech. He has not asked anyone to uprise against the govt. You political analysts, you are the one who create dictators. The govt party will then say let’s do something about the former president so that he stops criticising us. You will then see them bringing up trumped up charges to make sure the former president spends most of his time in the courthouse.

How dare can a professor, say watch your language, doesn’t he know that all politicians speak the same language. Why can’t he ask, president Chakwera about the one million jobs he promised Malawians? The problem with politicians such as professor Hussein, don’t like the truth if such, they start saying shut your mouth because they don’t like to be exposed or the truth to be said.

Why is it that people in Malawi forget fast? If you recall, you will agree with me that Chakwera was in the forefront opposing anything from Mutharika both in and out of Parliament. Was it not him who led demonstrators who went about destroying/torching property, why was he doing that when he knew there was a leader at the helm? Surprisingly he is the first person to point out that there should be one leader at a time. Actually, most of these outbursts wouldn’t have been there if the rule of law and democratic norms were upheld. But if the… Read more »

Chakwera used to say the same things of APM and he was even boycotting sona on that premise yet you said nothing.now since you are salivating for appointment to boards you open your stinking mouth. Chakwera is an illegal and illegitimate president having declared by an illegal and illegitimate commission

Mutharika is a chaotic man. I remember one day, long ago he was asked his hobby. He said he love watching War films. However, this is not a good image to someone who has followers.

I think he was born with a problem of immatured brain.

Kkkkkk bwana Hussein do you need to be educated on this? The courts already said in their judgement that the appointment of Linka Kunje and the three others was illegal since DPP seemed to have four in MEC. But in actual sense I heard APM telling the journalists when in power that DPP had three (Linja Kunje, Jean Mathanga and the other one) while Duwa was appointed to represent CSOs and then MCP had two. Further to this, according to section 75 section 1 says there shall be a Judge appointed by Judicial service and other commissioners not less than… Read more »
