The people of Malawi are in deep distress after their President, Peter Mutharika went missing for almost a month now.
The President of Malawi, Peter Mutharika has gone missing for nearly a month.
The President according to AP has been out of the country for almost a month, prompting demands for him to explain what critics call his “absence without leave.”
However, many have suggested that the President might be in serious health crisis. The statehouse this week announced that the President will return home on Sunday.
Mutharika went missing nearly a month ago after he had addressed U.N. gathering of world leaders in late September in the United States .
The government has denied rumors that Mutharika is critically ill. The country’s information minister has described the rumors as “baseless, malicious and sickening” and threatened those spreading false rumors with arrest, AP further reported.
Malawi’s Parliament wants the president to disclose all expenses incurred on his tour, including those of his entourage.
Meanwhile, some concerned citizens have taken to Twitter to express anger and disgust over the sudden disappearance of the president. A hashtag #BringBackMutharika has seen many Malawians express their anger at the sudden disappearance of Mutharika.
Malawians last saw Mutharika when he delivered a speech to the UN General Assembly, calling for international assistance to address hunger in his country.
