Zambia: Mutharika Turns Into a Laughing Stock in Zambia

Malawi's beloved leader Peter Mutharika became the subject of social media ridicule when he visited Zambia over the weekend to officially open the agricultural showcase in the neighbouring country.

A snap review of the views of Zambians on the Malawi leader who won after beating twelve contenders in 2014 showing how much Malawians trust him showed that his impressive feat back home did not inspire anything in Zambians who doubted if Malawians are not mad for voting for Mutharika to be their President.

A Zambian Ricky Jhala was one of the people who poured venom on Mutharika wondering how he could open an agricultural fair when the economy in Malawi was falling down. His views were at least fair when compared to some who were supported in the onslaught by a man whose Facebook profile shows he is a Malawian Walusako Chiwona who started mocking Mutharika while pretending that he was a Zambian.

Jonathan Katundula opened the can of worms by saying that Mutharika talks with a funny accent. Reactive comments supported him and later started questioning how a man who cannot manage to speak could be a Professor.

"It is a fake I am sure," wrote Chiwona confusing Mutharika with his aid Ben Phiri who bought a PhD last week which state house Press Officer Gerald Viola who has been embroidered in office abuse refuses to acknowledge.

"Malawian president... ... what's with those nasty goggles... he doesn't look like a Professor," commented one Samuel Chibale on the awkward tinted glasses that Mutharika likes.

However others were in love with Mutharika with one person indicating that he liked the way Mutharika laughed.
