Hospital Administrator Tom Chisale refused to comment but hospital sources say the 78-year-old economist-turned politician arrived at the hospital with his brother, Foreign Affairs Minister Peter Mutharika, and State House Chief of Staff Edward Sawerengera.
“He was wheeled into the Intensive Care Unit. First Lady Callista and three of the President’s four children are also here,” said one source.
It is not clear what Mutharika is suffering from but unconfirmed sources say he suffered from cardiac arrest.
Health Minister Jean Kalirani, police chief Peter Mukhito and several Members of Parliament were seen pacing around hospital corridors. The hospital has virtually been cordoned off with people trying to enter the hospital turned back.
