    Malawi president calls for calm, 18 dead in protests


    BLANTYRE (Reuters) - At least 18 people have been killed in clashes between police and demonstrators during violent nationwide protests against President Bingu wa Mutharika, the Malawian health ministry said on Thursday.
    Spokesman Henry Chimbali confirmed 10 deaths in the northern cities of Karonga and Mzuzu, where protesters angry at chronic fuel shortages(kikwete tatizo la umeme ni moja ya mapinduzi) and Mutharika's perceived autocracy ransacked the offices of his Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) on Wednesday.
    The others died in the capital, Lilongwe, and the southern commercial hub of Blantyre after police and troops fired teargas to disperse crowds demanding Mutharika quit as leader of the impoverished nation of 13 million.
    "These figures are based on those casualties that are coming through to the hospitals. Some died in hospital while some were brought by police already dead," Chimbali told Reuters. A further 41 people were injured, six critically, he added.
    The bloody crackdown in the normally peaceful former British colony is likely to intensify public anger against Mutharika, a former World Bank economist first elected in 2004, and could destroy his already troubled relationship with the donors who keep his government afloat.
    As riot police confronted groups of youths in the capital, Mutharika took to the airwaves to appeal for calm, saying he was happy to hear the grievances of opponents who accuse him of ignoring civil liberties and ruining the economy. (kikwete unasikiliza?)
    "Stop the rioting and let's sit down to discuss," he said(kikwete unasikiliza?) in a 12-minute address on state radio that also hinted at a fiercer crackdown. "I have a responsibility, based on the powers vested in me by the constitution, to bring law and order."
    The unrest is unprecedented in the history of Malawi, which was ruled for decades after independence in 1964 by the iron-fisted Hastings Banda, a UK-trained medical doctor.
    It is also a rare echo south of the Sahara of the popular uprisings that have engulfed north Africa and the Middle East over the last seven months.
    Mutharika has presided over six years of high-paced but aid-funded growth, and the sheen came off earlier this year when he became embroiled in a diplomatic row with Britain, Malawi's biggest donor, over a leaked embassy cable that referred to him as "autocratic and intolerant of criticism"(kuna tofauti gani na kikwete hapa?).
    The cable led to the expulsion of Britain's ambassador to Lilongwe, and in response, Britain expelled Malawi's representative in London and suspended aid worth $550 million over the next four years.
    The freeze has left a yawning hole in the budget of a country that has relied on handouts for 40 percent of its revenues, and intensified a foreign currency shortage that is threatening the kwacha's peg at 150 to the dollar.
    The dollar crunch has also pushed up fuel prices and exacerbated an already chronic energy shortage (ccm kwa umeme tutawaweka jela nyie), making a government economic growth forecast of 6.6 percent for this year look increasingly unrealistic.
    As the unrest erupted on Wednesday, state media broadcast a long economics lecture by Mutharika in which he harangued critics, including the International Monetary Fund (IMF). (kikwete IMF na donors hawakutaki sasa na wamechoka na wizi wenu)
    0rdinary Malawians say they are fed up with hearing that foreigners are to blame for all the country's woes.
    "The demonstrations have sent a message to the president that he's too detached from reality and has to act fast," said Fainess Mandewe, as she queued for fuel at a filling station on the outskirts of Blantyre.
    "We need fuel, we need electricity. Blaming donors won't help in any way."

    May Take
    1. Malawi nchi yenye wananchi milioni 13 inaelekea kumwondoa raisi wao kutokana na rushwa na hali mbaya ya uchumi. Je watanzania tupo milioni 43 tunatekeleza lini pledge yetu ya kumwondoa kikwete kwa uhuni wa rushwa, ajira, ufisadi na mengi yasioisha?

    2. Ukweli unaonekana sasa Waafrika tunafuata Arab Spring na tunataka best for ourselves na sasa yanahamia Tanzania. Je unataka tuanze lini?

    3. Wananchi wote waliouliwa Arusha, Mara na wengine wamekufa kwa ajili ya kutetetea haki za Mtanzania. Je upo tayari kuwapa heshima zao?

    The time is here and we will do it. Stay tune for brief announcement here JF.

    sasa mkimuondoa kikwete ndo mtaondoa rushwa. Polisi bado analipwa kima cha chini kama wakusanya kodi hao ndo watu tunategemea wapinge rushwa wakati wanataapika na ukali wa maisha.

    We should emancipate ourselves from mental slavery which has been undercutting the development of our nation, we have minerals, national parks, water bodies, good climate, fertile soil, mountains and so many other things which most of the developed countries do not have. We should wake up and stand as one group to fight for our rights, let us put aside our differences and demakmnd for our national cake. We should not stay beside and look because looking without doing is nothing. I totally agree with you that it's now a time for changes, time for liberation, time for revolution. We need active leaders who are not self interested rather public interested, people who lead and not rule, people who can dictate and not always smilling, people who can take strong decisions just to rescure our lost nation.

    Kikwete ataondoka madarakani baada ya miaka minne kuanzia sasa kama katiba inavyosema na labda (Mungu amnusuru) umauti au ugonjwa wa kumfanya asiweze kufanya kazi.

    Kikwete anachapa kazi na analeta mabadiliko ya kweli katika hii nchi kuliko Rais mwengine yeyote kabla yake. Abishae na aoneshe ni wapi ambapo hakuna maendeleo ya dhati.
