Support my development agenda – President Mutharika

Blantyre, March 30, 2017: President Arthur Peter Mutharika has asked Malawians to support his development plans in order to bring positive impact to the lives of people in the country.

President Mutharika made the remarks Wednesday in Blantyre during a whistle stop as he was coming from Mangochi where he went to fulfill some official engagements.

Speaking at the entrance to Sanjika Palace in Blantyre where a multitude of DPP supporters had gathered to welcome him, the Malawi leader said his government has lined up a number of development programs such as construction of a network of tarmac roads in all the districts, a secondary school in Machinga and a five star hotel and stadium in Blantyre.

“For these plans to be realized they require your continued support towards the Democratic Progressive Party led government,” said Mutharika.

He wondered why there are still some people who are spending sleepless nights in trying to take over his government by force warning such individuals risk facing the long arm of the law.

“I see that some of you are busy planning to topple this government. If you think you can take this government by force, with force I am ready to challenge you,” Mutharika warned.

The president also challenged results of a survey that indicated only 40 percent of people in the country are behind him.

“Some people are saying only 40 percent of people in this country are behind me. Look at this multitude of people that has come out to welcome me here in Blantyre. Is this the 40 percent you are talking about? If you don’t have better things to do you better keep quiet,” retorted Mutharika.

While in Mangochi in the Eastern Region President Peter Mutharika presided over the commemoration of the World Water Day during which he inaugurated a water treatment plant. He also commissioned a community technical college at Mangochi boma.
