President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has distanced himself from rumours hovering on the social media alleging that he is interfering in the internal matters of the Republic of Zimbabwe.

According to reports, it is alleged that Mutharika said he will not cling to power once his term is over be like the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, His Excellency Robert Gabriel Mugabe.

In a statement released on Saturday, Minister of Information and Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi trashed the allegations, saying it’s not true that Mutharika uttered those statements in Machinga.

“President Mutharika has never addressed a rally in Machinga, and has never held a meeting in public or in private where he made that statement where the unfortunate suggestions by the article have been drawn. In any case, President Mutharika is an international diplomat and international law expert who understands the obligation of non-interference that nations are expected to comply with.

“Zimbabwe is a sovereignty state, and as such they are entitled to determine their own internal matters as they see fit. Suffice it to say Malawi has no business to dictate to the people of Zimbabwe how they should conduct their affairs,” reads in part the statement.

Added Dausi: “The people of Malawi and those of Zimbabwe are assured that the Government of Malawi remains resolute to its policy of not interfering in internal matters of other countries.

“Government is aware that the opposition parties in Malawi are running a desperate campaign to tell lies against the President and his administration in order to create chaos in the country and abhorrence in the international community because they know that they have no credible strategy for winning the 2019 elections.”
