US Ambassador Virginia Palmer Trashes Malawi Media
US ambassador to Malawi Virginia Palmer took to podium to criticize the Malawi media for its lack of objectivity and poor reporting.
Speaking during the launch of National Agricultural and Irrigation policies at Bingu International Convention Center (BICC) in Lilongwe.
Palmer said it is very unfair for the media to report that there is hike of maize price and accuse the Peter Mutharika leadership.
“In fact, the media and some Malawians were supposed to thank government for pumping some money to ADMARC to purchase the maize.Moreover they maintained the same price for buyers in their depots,this is something recommendable bearing in mind that the government is losing for the sake of its people.”She said.
Some people have commended the ambassador saying her voice is timely owing lack of objectivity in the opposition and the media when it comes to presenting some issues.
Will the Malawi media now listen because an American has spoken?
