Director of Communications at State House Bright Mollande insisted on Wednesday President Peter Mutharika is still in the United States on official duties.
He said he could not say when he is coming back, saying State House will put up an announcement on his coming back as they did with his going to the US.
However, this comment has attracted mixed views on social media.
Some people are arguing that the President is always surrounded with a couple of journalists from MBC and Mana who detail each and every official engagement he has outside the country but MBC has had no news of the Head of State for two weeks now which is surprising.
Mutharika is said to have secretly proceeded on leave after the UN general assembly, his last destination unknown but left behind a collapsing economy and a struggling nation back in Malawi.
