Peter Mutharika told to brace for tough times


Activist Michael Usi, who is canvassing for votes through his Odya Zake Alibe Mulandu Network, has warned incumbent President Peter Mutharika to prepare for a tough exist during next year’s presidential election.

Usi made the remarks in Mangochi District on Sunday when he met traditional leaders and network’s coordinators in Mangochi.

After meeting the coordinators and traditional leaders at Kuiputi Primary School, Traditional Authority Jalasi, Usi said Malawians are no longer interested in voting for leaders who have nothing to offer.


“People want to change things. They want to have power [supply] in their homes,” Usi said.

In Mangochi, Usi met over 34 group village heads from the areas of senior chiefs Jalasi and Bwananyambi before meeting the team that is supervising the campaign in the district.

Just like in previous meetings in Machinga and Zomba districts, traditional leaders asked Usi to partner a person who is youthful and not corrupt.


On his part, Usi said chiefs have a key role to play in national development.

He further asked people to stop following politicians who are giving them handouts, describing the practice as a form of corruption.

“It will not be easy for the old man [Mutharika]; it will be tough. We are putting extra efforts in recruiting voters to help boot out corrupt leaders next year,” he said.
