Malawi Punch investigation reveal that Malawi Government chartered plane to USA where it arrived in Washington DC and later connected to New York. It is not known as to why the government secretly chartered the plane.
According to information we have gathered through well-placed sources in Washington, President Mutharika is said to be at New York Presbyterian Hospital where he was treated for a Urinary Tract Infection.
Our source denied that the Malawi President was conducting business in the states and said none of the government delegates met any US Minister for business of bilatetal discussions. He further indicated that US government has no interests in Malawi.
According to information, Peter Mutharika’s convoy has not yet left the hospital for the past 2 weeks. Malawi Punch could not determine the state of the President following the operation.
Malawi government dismissed reports that the President was sick and maintained that he is conducting business in the US, despite information clearly revealing that he has not made any public appearance for the past weeks and nothing has been reported on Malawi Broadcasting Station, which usually broadcasts every move made by the president.
Meanwhile, Malawi diplomats through the High Commissioner tried to seek audience with US President Barrack Obama, but were turned down and referred to the Secretary of State John Kelly who promised to meet them as soon as his schedule is cleared.
