The main opposition Malawi Congress Party(MCP) President Reverend Dr Lazarus Chakwera has accused president Professor Peter Mutharika of living a ‘fantasy life’ while millions of Malawians are suffering.
Chakwera, who is also the leader of opposition in Parliament, was speaking to a local media house on Thursday evening. He said that President Mutharika has demonstrated to the nation that he is a failed leader.
“You live in Mutharika Republic, whose capital is the State House, where our taxes supply you with an endless supply of free water when Malawians have no water, free food when Malawians face hunger, free electricity when Malawians live in the dark ages.
“free travel when Malawians walk with no shoes, free fuel when Malawians cry at the pumps, free 100-million Kwacha cars with bullet-proof doors to protect you from imaginary enemies when Malawians have nothing to protect them from your disastrous…….
“The Mutharika Republic you live in and of which you are President is a different country from the one the rest of us live in, because the rest of us still live in Malawi, still live for Malawi, still go to school in Malawi, still go to hospital in Malawi, still raise our children in Malawi, still work for Malawi, and still,” said President Chakwera.
Chakwera then called upon members of press, human rights activists and Members of Parliament to squeeze president Mutharika and the ruling Democratic Progress Party.
“I call upon all members of the press to continue giving this Government restless nights by probing into every inflated claim it makes about its achievements to expose everything that is nothing more than empty talk,” said President Chakwera.
