Presidential Press Officer Mgeme Kalilani has distanced himself from leaked Whats App conversation between him and President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika’s aide Ben Phiri regarding today’s meeting with University of Malawi (UNIMA) students’ union leaders.

In the leaked conversation, Ben Phiri is seen dictating what Mutharika should say to UNIMA students nicknamed ‘idiots’, proving what former legal advisor to former President late Bingu wa Mutharika, Allan Ntata said earlier that most of Mutharika’s decision are made by his personal aide.

Writing on his official Facebook page, Kalilani said he is not aware of the conversation, saying the text has been fabricated.

“Several friends, colleagues and relatives have called me inquiring about a purported leaked Whats App dialogue purportedly mentioning my name in relation to some important national activity.

“I have been sent the so-called Whats App dialogue. And would like to assure all that the text is a total fabrication,” said Kalilani.

He added: “With my occupation and the nature of our society, regrettably, such creations should be expected.”
