Malawi President Mutharika faulted for ignoring northern region

MZUZU-(MaraviPost)-A political analyst at the University of Livingstonia, George Allan Phiri, has faulted President Arthur Peter Mutharika for completely ignoring the Northern Region; saying the President is depriving his electorates in the region of their political rights.

Speaking in an interview on Wednesday, Phiri said since 21 May polls results, President Muthalika has not visited the north; despite major activities such as Mzuzu Universit graduation, the Ngoni Cultural Festival, Umthetho and even the fierce fighting of Msakanene and Nkondezi Villages in Nkhata Bay District where about five people died.

“Even though the events were not government oriented, he has also missed major activities like the Ngoni Heritage in the region. In my view, the situation is not healthy. He has always said he was voted by many Malawians in all the regions, then why is he ignoring some of the electorates that voted for him in the north?” Wondered Phiri.

However, State House Press Officer, Mgeme Kalilani has refuted the allegations; saying the President has scheduled tasks to perform in various places across the country and in few weeks time, he will be in the north to perform the same.

Since he was voted again into power on 21 May tripartite elections, President Arthur Peter Mutharika has never stepped his feet into the Northern Region of the country, a situation which has sparked a debate among followers of politics in the country.

His controversial victory during the May 21 polls, is challenged in court by UTM’s leader, Dr Saulos Claus Chilima and Dr Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP). The two allege that the polls were marred with innumerable irregularities; and so there should be a rerun.
