President Peter Mutharika Tuesday challenged his critics to either join his administration or shut up for labelling him as a leader without vision.
According to him, those who continue to attack his style of leadership have so far not offered any solutions to the numerous challenges rocking the country.
The Malawi leader said this during the official opening of a 13.4 km stretch of Lilongwe City West bypass funded to the tune of K3.9 billion by African Development Bank (ADB).
“These people will shiver and collapse after the seven projects from China have been completed. Is community colleges and Malata subsidy not a vision? Is bringing the forex into the country not a vision? These people just know how to oppose. If this country is going the wrong direction, show us the right direction then,” said Mutharika attracting applause from party supporters.
The first citizen also hinted on plans by opposition to fight for the phasing out of subsidies, a move he said is only meant to slow down his developmental agenda.
Commenting on the road project, Mutharika hailed ADB for the development, saying it will transform the capital city’s status as well as ease congestion.
Said Mutharika: “My dream is to develop the capital city to international standards, that is why we have lined up a number of dual carriageways in and outside the city.”
In his remarks, ADB resident representative Andrew Mwaba reaffirmed the bank’s commitment to continue supporting the country in its development endeavours.
