Bingu Back in Malawi
President Bingu wa Mutharika on Wednesday afternoon arrived back home from Nigeria through Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe after silently flying out of the country early Tuesday morning.
It was not clear why the Malawi President silently flew to Nigeria and more shocking was the fact that his government officials wanted to make the trip a secret.
“The President has gone nowhere he is around” Malawi’s flamboyant Information Patricia Kaliati told a local newspaper on Wednesday.
In the same quiet manner he departed on Tuesday, the President on Wednesday also returned without the tradition fanfare that characterizes Kamuzu International Airport whenever he is arriving or departing.
“The plane carrying the President has arrived. Immediately after disembarking he went straight to where his official vehicles were and left the Airport,” said a zodiak online source at the airport.
Zodiak online has no independent confirmation that President Mutharika flew to Nigeria but the website of Nigeria’s State House confirms that President Mutharika was indeed in the oil nation.
The confirmation is through a picture on the website of President Goodluck Jonathan welcoming the Malawi President.
The Malawi President, according to published reports, left Kamuzu International Airport around 5 o’clock in the morning on Tuesday with a small convoy.
Meanwhile, it is yet to be known why the President’s trip was kept a secret with the Minister of Information insisting that President Mutharika had traveled nowhere.
However, unconfirmed reports indicate that the President went to Nigeria to negotiate for oil supplies in the wake of the current fuel shortage that his hitting Malawi. - Zodiak Online
