BREAKING NEWS: US Government Endorses Malawi’s Election “Successful”

The Secretary of State of the United States of America, Michael Pompeo, has endorsed Malawi’s recent Election as “successful” — just at the time when the Opposition is campaigning to create a state of chaos using the same Elections as their reason.

As Secretary of State, Pompeo is the third most powerful man in the US Government and speaks the policy position of the Government.

His carefully worded but concise and very precise statement is an implied backing of President Peter Mutharika’s re-election despite the Opposition claiming that the Elections were flawed.

Speaking in a press statement on Malawi’s Independence Day which fell on 6 July, Pompeo said “Malawi’s recent successful national elections underscore the nation’s commitment to our shared democratic principles.”

The US Secretary of State continues that “These values form the basis of our strong partnership and we look forward to continuing, and building upon, the positive relationship between Malawi and the United States.”

This unequivocal backing coming from the world’s superpower, the US, is read as a strong warning to the Opposition which has waged a campaign of violence to “create a state of lawlessness” using the same Elections as an excuse, according to President Peter Mutharika.

Led by Lazarus Chakwera and Saulos Chilima, the Opposition has staged the worst violent and most damaging demonstrations in the history of the country. Ironically, Chilima wrote a statement on 24 May conceding defeat and appealing for peace but never released the statement.

President Mutharika has told the nation in his address at Independence Day that “The violence you see is calculated to turn Malawi into a lawless state. That is why they want to undermine every democratic institution that ensures law and order in the country.”

Mutharika: Has consistently campaigned for peace and unity

Mutharika has displayed rare patience and restraint against violent attacks against him and party as he endeavours to keep Malawi peaceful and calm and save the country from those who are fighting to push it into a state of lawlessness.

Mutharika has consistently campaigned for peace and unity to create an environment that moves his country out of poverty.

On Saturday, Mutharika delivered a unifying and peace speech that has struck a quiet chord of peace loving Malawians.

He said, “We may have differences but we are not enemies. There is no Malawian who must regard a fellow Malawian as an enemy.

“We may vote for different parties. That does not mean we are enemies. We may come from different parts of the country, that does mean we are enemies. We are all Malawians. We are one people.”

The Elections which Chakwera and Chilima are disputing were virtually endorsed by all international and local independent bodies as free, fair, peaceful and credible Elections.

But the Opposition filed a complaint and sought to have the whole Election ignored. To the surprise of everyone, the same Opposition is waging a campaign of violence without due respect of the Court to do its job first. This approach has made the Opposition unpopular.

In this controversy, the endorsement of the US Government is understood as a clear warning to the Opposition groups who want to distabilise the country.

    This is a lier, the same US gorvernment has banned some big politicians from Malawi to enter in america becasue they are too corrupt.
    And also the Malawi police were instructed to teargas the American dipromat who was having a fairwel meeting with the President of MCP Dr Lazalous Chakwera in Lilongwe.
    If this was a mistake why malawi government never apologize to America and conderm the marplactice.
    Now the news is everywhere that the American is planning to close its embassy in Malawi.and more over the whole world knows that mutharika did not win the elections that is why the malawi electral commission used TIPEX to change the figures in favour of mutharica.
    80% if people who casts their vote they did not vote for mutharika
    So malawians are crying for their vote.and they are not gonna stop untli the trueth is out.

    The US shouldn’t fuck with our business, they tried to fuck with Maduro but Maduro fucked them. The 2019 elections was a mockery on justice and Malawians will not seat down and watch APM and the US mock the liberties of Malawi. Justice must be served. All we want is Justice.

    Add your comment Pompeii whatever you call him is no better than his no one most powerful man in the United states, his president..
    we Malawians know that Peter did not win the evidence is there..he used tippex to change results in his favor..he used pre- marked fake ballot from a printing company in a Blantyre, he changed results from Chilima, Atupele and Chakwera just to put6 himself in the lead, tell Pompeii to come to Malawi and see what we have been seeing before issuing such a statement…

    Malawi voice is Dpp propanda and fortunately the people who reads the online news are educated and aware of the despration you are in.
    I dont think that Mutharika can sleep with the dignity of a president .The fear is all over him of going being under house arrest soon .He is one of the most discredted president in SADC region,and what amazes me is that he is known to be highly educated .
    Mutharika your disgrace is around the conner just like mugabe

    Cheap propaganda at it’s best, which USA Secretary of state was speaking on the independence day.

    You are cheating yourself. Which whole world are you talking about. My friend, the world was here through EU observers, the Commonwealth, AU, SADC, all of these released their reports, saying elections were free and fair. Your statements lack facts and are fallacious. You have no support in the world, and brace for shame soon.

    If you think the American statement is fake, them tell the USA to disown it. Have you heard that the US embassy will be moving to a site along the Presidential highway? They are running away from being close to MCP offices and hooligans. It was unsafe.

    You should know by now that the issue in which one of the advisors is answering in courts happened when he was Minister in the People’s Party government, the cashgate masterminders whom you embraced during the campaign period. There is no connection whatsoever with the current regime. Think twice!
