Bingu attacks Malawi Nyasa Times as McCain and Obama attacked the Media.


During the 2008 US Elections, both President-elect Barack Obama and Sen. John McCain attacked the media for the negative portrayal of their personalities, agendas or personal lives. As the Leader of the Free World, the USA and its politicians are considered as an example to the many African politicians. It is therefore not surprising that the President of Malawi(a third-world-country); attacks the media in his turn.According to an article posted on the Nyasa Times website, Mr Bingu wa Mutharika, the Malawi President is quoted as saying: “The Nyasa Times has been part of the vilification campaign against me and my government. It has concentrated on tarnishing my image internationally for reasons which I don't know. Much focus has been on negatives only and not on positives about my government” The Nyasa Times which has been voted as 2008 Malawi Best News Website has at times through its articles taken swipes at Bingu wa Mutharika’s policies especially as the Malawi Presidential Elections are fast approaching. Just like President-elect Barack Obama attacked Fox News and Sen. John McCain attacked the New York Times, the Malawi Media should expect even more attacks from Mr Bingu wa Mutharika or his rival, Mr Bakili Muluzi before the May 19th Malawi Elections.

The Ngwazi might have done some weired things, but our aim as Malawians is developing this country. We cant afford bringing down the president.

What Malawians should do in this case is to pray,because no man is an island,what you see from your friends steps when dancing cannot been seen when its you dancing.
God has revealed many things to His children that even kings dont know them,so you children of God say a little prayer every passing day for your darling malawi.God is good all the times

depart from all langauge of pontining figures but hate the devil who is causing all these problems,accidents,earthquarkes,ant-christ spirits,marriage brake ups,gays,corruption,hatrade etc.
Isaiah 54;17 says no weapon fashioned agaianst us shall prevail,quickly cancell all weapons of lack of wisdom to our leader etc.
God bless you malawi

Unity is the weapon in prayer becuase divided we fall.Lucifer wanted to divied God kingdom but God cases him until today.

Tell every malawian to resist from hatred because it come from the devil.Love your leader by praying for him.It deosnt matter whether he comes from your tribe or not,He is your president.
When you offer prayer to God for people,people will pray for you also.
God bless you lovely people of God

likewise,those who understand politics dont mingle politics and prayers, because we all know all about politics,even Bingu himself knows tha he is out of constitution he is carrying his duties againts God,constitution,what people want and infflinging peoples right,who are yu to tell us to say a prayer to ask God to let the traitor continue misschieving on Earth,instead of praying for him to die,so that God would bring a good leader,politics is agame of do or die,no permanent friend,nor permanent enemy but permanent intrerest,so those who have removed their leaders for change are not stupid, Malawians,wake up,if yu love malawi as your country

WHY COMPLAINING,HE IS THE BEST DICTATOR MALAWI HAS EVER HAD.I VOTED FOR HIM AND I HAVE ALSO CONTRIBUTED TO THE PROBLEMS MALAWI IS FACING TODAY BY VOTING FOR BINGU WA MTHALIKA.NYASA TIMES HAS HELP MALAWI TO ON THE MAP.

SHALL....SHALL...WHICH SCHOOL OF ECONOMY DID YOU GO THAT YOU FAIL TO DELIVER THE SKILLS. NOW YOU WANT TO CHEAT THE NATION TO VOTE FOR YOUR YOUNG BROTHER,A PERSON A COUNTRY HAS NEVER KNOWN AND IS FAILLING TO DELIVER TO EACH AND EVERY MINISTRY.WE DONT WANT FAILURES IN LIFE TO LEAD US THIS TIME.

WE WOULD PREFFER TO HAVE A MALAWIAN BROUIGHT AND GRADUAND FROM UNIVERSITY OF MALAWI LEAD US THAT YOU WHO PRETEND TO HAVE BEEN OUTSIDE WITH WIDE EXPERIENCE FROM REPUTABLE ORGANISATION.THAT IS WHY COMESA BOOTED BINGU OUT BECAUSE YOU (BINGU WA MTHALIKA) COULD NOT LIVE UP TO THE MISSION OF THE ORGANISATION.

SORRY TO BINGU THE DICTATOR. I PRAY FOR YOU TO DIE NOW.
