The adage, “a picture is worth a thousand words” applies here as ruling People’s Party (PP) supporters in full attire could not contain themselves as they mobbed Professor Peter Mutharika, President of opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) at Kamuzu International Airport who was on his way to the United States for a well-deserved R and R.
Apparently the Peoples Party ladies were at the Airport to see Off President Joyce Banda who is on her way to Nigeria for a short vacation. According to a story on Marapost the President is going to Nigeria to consult her Nigerian oracle T. B Joshua on the upcoming 2014 Presidential Elections.
Arthur Peter Mutharika (born 1940) is a Malawian politician, author, educator, lawyer, advisor and consultant. He has worked in the area of international Justice internationally. He is an expert on international economic law, international law and comparative constitutional law. He is rumored to have powerful friends in the Barack Obama administration and will likely get their endorsement as the elections get closer.
The DPP unlike past opposition parties has a hefty war chest and will compete on an even keel with the ruling PP.
This picture above cannot bring comfort in the bowels of the Peoples party.
