 Malawi President: Peter Mutharika

As it were, all the attention in this month’s elections is on who is likely to be Malawi’s next President.
So far, the presidential candidates have said enough in their campaigns for people to make up their minds on who to vote for.
The competition among the candidates is very stiff. Even being in government, as the case is with President Peter Mutharika, does not seem to be an added advantage. The problem here is that his five-year rule has been full of misery due to allowing corruption, stealing of public resources and general abuse of power. Therefore, all the presidential candidates are starting from the same level.
Naturally, Mutharika would want to be a step ahead because of what he has done for the people of Malawi. He has recently promoted teachers and police officers. These promotions were long overdue and, maybe it is done now for the sake of buying more votes.
