This was the headline in Sunday's edition of Nation on Sunday, describing a survey conducted by the newspaper which shows that Pres Joyce Banda is a failure.
The Nation said in a survey of 1, 200 people, 71 percent said Banda had "failed to meet their expectations.”
The people cited the problems of fuel, plummeting living standards, floatation of the kwacha, devaluation and arrogance of the presidency.
Rights activist Billy Mayaya told the newspaper that the president "had lost the plot" because of her own making.
"People have become disillusioned with Joyce Banda's presidency because she is no longer inspiring confidence. She is only reinforcing the culture of executive arrogance that has led to the downfall of presidents before here," Mayaya added.
Chancellor College political analyst Blessings Chinsinga of the academic freedom saga, was also quoted as saying despite reversing the late Bingu wa Mutharika's bad policies, she hasn’t made the "wow decision" which Malawians can be proud of, citing her not making tough decisions on the automatic fuel pricing, devaluing the kwacha and its floatation, saying there were sound policies but the results not immediate.
"Malawians are also disappointed because they expected a break from the politics of the previous administration, but they realised that things were unlikely to change, especially with the PP convention that brought in people that were in the past administration that caused the current problem Malawi is facing," Chinsinga added.
But presidential press secretary Steven Nhlane said he expected the outcome of the survey because the media had given the Banda administration "bad publicity such as the outcome of the extensive coverage of the strikes that set a background for a negative outcome."
Nhlane, a former editor of Malawi News, said all donors were "happy with the way government was handling things...I wonder why it is Malawians who seem not to see government's efforts."
