It has been revealed that Malawi President Peter Mutharika wrote a letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon telling UN that he opposes the United Nations decision to be awarding Dr Joyce Banda with honorary titles without consulting him.
The letter was sent in March 2015 through the office of the president and cabinet following the United Nations’ decision to award Malawi Former President Dr Joyce Banda as a champion of Women Empowerment and Gender Equality in Africa besides engaging Dr Joyce Banda to pioneer women’s groups aiming at reducing the gender inequalities in Africa.
“We can confirm Mutharika was very furious with the news that Dr Joyce Banda is being honoured and he immediately decided to take the matter in his own hands. He wrote to UN, AU and other international organisations to not invite Dr Joyce Banda without his permission as a president of Malawi but the truth is he is bitter that despite Dr Joyce Banda not being a president anymore, she is still making headlines worldwide.” Said the state house source.
Mutharika is on record to have authorised his information minister Nankhumwa to fabricate CCTV footage to implicate Dr Joyce Banda in cashgate with false information and also encouraged Nankhumwa to stand up and make false allegations against the former president that she had something to do with the death of dictator Bingu wa Mutharika.
“The problem with Peter Mutharika is he is immature psychologically as he wants all fame and praise to go to him even without any achievement to see. That’s why he is jealousy of JB. Peter is desperate to see JB becoming unpopular that’s why he wrote letters to UN and AU to stop honouring her. But the UN hasn’t answered him because they know he has no authority over JB and they know he is a hater that’s why donors are also having no confidence in him. All this talk about olive branch is fake. Peter is an emotionally immature man he can’t take it that JB is still popular and all he wished was an opportunity to destroy her that’s how cheaply he thinks.” Said the source
