President Bingu wa
Mutharika collapsed in
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, just
after attending a peace and
security in Africa meeting
of the African Union (AU).

The President left Malawi
for Addis on a day return
visit Monday last week
where he also attended the India-Africa Forum Summit alongside other African Heads of States and the
Indian Prime Minister,
Manmohan Singh.

The Second India-Africa
Forum Summit was held
from May 20 to May 25 and
saw the Indian
government take
significant steps towards building ties with Africa,
with much emphasis on
trade and development.

According to impeccable
sources, Mutharika
collapsed in the conference
venue at the AU
headquarters as he
exchanged pleasantries with several dignitaries. He
was rushed to his hotel
room where doctors
attended to the President.

“It is not clear what the problem with the Head of
State was, but we think it
(collapse) may have been
caused by fatigue,” said a member of Mutharika ’s security detail, who accompanied the president
to Addis. He pleaded for

An official at the Malawi
High Commission in Addis
Ababa also confirmed to
Nyasa Times the
development. He also could
not be named.

The president flew out of
Malawi immediately after
presenting the State of the
Nation address during the
official opening of this
year’s national budget session in parliament. He
spoke at parliament for
close to two hours. The
flight from Blantyre to
Addis Ababa is about three
hours and thirty minutes.

State House Press Officer
and Presidential
Spokesperson, Albert
Mungomo and Dr.
Hetherwick Ntaba,
respectively dismissed the development and could not
comment further when

Deputy minister of
information, Trasizio
Thomie Gowelo also
refused to comment on the
“cheap beerhall talk”.

Mutharika turned 77 on
February 24, 2011 and
there are fears that his
health may be
deteriorating with old age
and that some observers have cautioned the
president against “over packing” his official itineraries. Nyasatimes
