Kalua: Recommendations are rarely taken on board

Kalua:DPP has not performed well

University of Malawi political science professor at Chancellor College in eastern city of Zomba, Blessings Chinsinga, gives President Mutharika’s performance an “average mark” due to his effort in stabilising political atmosphere while he has not performed well on the social and economic aspect.

“I am of the view that the country’s political environment has stabilised during the one year period that the current administration has been in power.

“This is because may be due to the fact that the President has not been responding to some provoking statements from other political sectors a development that could bring instability in political sense”, said Chinsinga.

The politics lecturer however attributed the impact of cashgate corruption scandal and flood disaster to have partly contributed failure to perform well in providing social and economic needs of citizens.

Mzuzu University based economist Dr Collen Kalua believes that government has not performed well as expected as there is nothing developmental that can be proudly shown to have been implemented on the ground.

“You go around the country and check for developments in the past year that this government has been in power, you will see that there is nothing. What we have heard those in government celebrating are ongoing projects that started during the Peoples Party regime.

“So you can see that it has not been rosy socially and economically as well because people have complained of poor social services delivery due to lack of government resources, you talk of drugs in hospitals, delayed or non-paid salaries and leave grants for some public workers, you talk of cries from the private sector of their arrears in billions, so there are a number of issues that still linger to be corrected to grade the government’s performance”, said Kalua.

Could I waste my time calling Blessings Chinsinga a professor? If so what kind of a professor who can give APM an average mark on his performance? What kind of an institution that can bestow a professorial degree on Chisinga who is himself below academic level? Bakili Muluzi performed better than Peter in his first term before he was attacked by the malady which destroys African leaders: The stench of corruption.

Guys if you put partisan in ur comment I think u are out of the subject even the way Dr kaluwa has said I don’t think a well educated person can say that, as if the pp government had any project apart from distributing mbuzi,chimanga etc.Now as a malawian the Dpp government has done its part I don’t think a complete human being can rate someone negative in everything as for me this government its in a right direction un like the cashgaters and all those who are good at critising even they know that something good has happened If… Read more »
