President Peter Mutharika is in panic mode. After staying put at hilltop Sanjika Palace for close to two months without campaigning, Mutharika is in a panic mode which will see him addressing five rallies in two days.
This is unprecedented for the 83 year old Mutharika who many of his supporters felt was uninterested with the fresh presidential elections slated for next week Tuesday.
According to a program we have seen, Mutharika will travel to Lilongwe on Wednesday by road stopping at Ntcheu for a rally at noon before addressing another rally at Biwi Triangle.
On Thursday Mutharika will ride on a Mota Engil Chopper for Mzimba where he will address a rally at Mzimba Boma at 11 o’clock before flying to Chitipa Boma where he will address an rally at 2 o’clock. He will address a final rally at Karonga Boma at 4pm.
Insiders said Mutharika is in panic mode after reality hit him that the fresh presidential elections are happening next week contrary to the lies that he has been constantly fed by his captors.
He forced Mota Engil to ‘borrow’ their Chopper for last ditch efforts to save his presidency which is slipping away from grip.
Mutharika is expected to hold one final rally on Sunday at the close of the campaign period.
