Dpp has said that

The Democratic Progressive Party has said that limited donor support and natural disasters that had hit the country have been the major challenges the DPP government has faced in the three years it has been in power.
DPP Publicity Secretary Francis Kasaila said that minimal foreign aid due to a combination of several factors including Cashgate and the freezing of donor support, but the party has tried to serve Malawians to its level best.
“From 2014 to 2015 the country experienced dry spell and 2016 we experienced floods that affected many districts of the country. We also lost 40% donor support because of Cashgate. These made economy to struggle and made the two and a half years toughest, but we have managed to serve Malawians without donor support,” said Kasaila.
President Peter Mutharika was sworn in on May 31, 2014 after a disputed poll, and a recent study shows his leadership has failed Malawians on governance, corruption and elections that it would not retain power if polls were held today.
On Tuesday, the AfroBarometre study revealed 88 percent of Malawians think this country is going in the wrong direction under the DPP leadership but government spokesperson Nicholas Dausi dismissed the findings as not being a true reflection of the situation on the ground.
Meanwhile, Kasaila has said that the timing of the survey affected the findings.
“At the time the survey was conducted, November/December, we had serious challenges of electricity, food situation, and therefore people were really angry, not because of the way government is doing its business, but because they were misinformed,” Kasaila said.
When asked to rate performance of the DPP led administration in the three years, political analyst Joseph Chunga said that the Afro-Barometer findings are nothing but a true reflection of Malawi today.
“If you have a country where 88% of its people, regardless of their political affiliations, are saying that their country is going in the wrong directions, for me that is an indication of how people are feeling about the DPP regime three years down the line,” Chunga said.
With less than two years to the next election, the Peter Mutharika administration is hoping things will get better as soon as possible to stand a chance of re-election.
