Ex-President Mutharika Speaks: My Silence Is To Give New Govt Space

Former President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika says he has been quite so long for him to comment on national matters to give space for the new administration to govern without obstacles.

He was speaking during a press briefing at his private home in Mangochi.

Mutharika acknowledged that running government “is a huge task therefore it is imperative to support policies for the new administration.”

Commenting on internal wrangles in DPP, Mutharika said he is not clinging to the former ruling party’s leadership, saying “a functional reviewing committee will convene to guide the party on the next course of action.

“I will guide the party to the next convention. I will not leave you. I will fight for anyone who wants to sell the party to the highest bidder,” he said.

And commenting on the Fresh Presidential Election that saw him losing power to Prrsident Dr Lazarus Chakwera, Mutharika claimed that the election was specifically tailored to remove him from power.

“They introduced 50%+1 to remove me from the position because it has not been there in the law since Chakuamba case,” he said. – Reported by Austin Kachipeya, MBC
