Anglican bishop faults Malawi leaders for inflicting pain on ordinary people

Anglican bishop for Upper Shire Brighton Malasa has squarely put the blame on Malawi leaders for the problems facing the country.

Bishop Malasa: Leaders to blame

Malasa said in an interview that Malawi leaders do not have plans for Malawians whenever they are getting into government.

“Yes, we have some misguided civil servants who steal money from the government but largely our leaders are to blame,” said Malasa.

President Peter Mutharika has blamed the cashgate and donors pull out as the major reasons for the economic turmoil.

However, it had to take the opposition, civil society groups and the media to question the wisdom of the head of state to keep on chartering presidential jets in this bad state of the economy before he stopped.

Malasa told a local radio that the clergy always engage the President and his government over the appalling living conditions of people in the country.

“We don’t have to always to announce what we talk. Sometimes we discuss issues in camera. We have frank talk,” said the bishop.

Mutharika says the current economic problems would ease by end this month, sentiments contracted by his Finance bank Goodall Gondwe who has always been frank that it would take time before the economy gets back to its feet.

International Monetary Fund team is expected in the country mid January, 2016 to assess whether to resume extended credit facility to Malawi or not, a programme if approved would open gates for donors to come back after they left two years ago.

The bishop has said it all. Politicians get into power with no plans on how to correct the situations. When did Peter knew that there was cashgate in this country. I think he was telling people that he was going to change things for better? Actually he even said we would see positive changes in first 3 months of his rule. Its now a year and several months and yet he keeps on blaming the same cashgate he promised to correct. Who can therefore be serious with him? We are watching!Enanu tikudziwa kuti mumangozilowetza uchilomwe kulephera kuona ma shortfalls a… Read more »

Iweyo nde chule weniweni wooneka ngati munthu. Cant you for once engage your brain which you dont have and see that the blame for inflation on the leadership is misplaced? Why wont you put forth a counter argument to what has been said instead of just making noise? You are such a shameless hater. A stinking pig fart. Hating others wont help you. Get a life.

Come on Mr clergyman! ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. Did we not celebrate when JB of the Azungu-akuti fame and holder of an honorary PhD in economic management, simultaneously devalued the Kwacha n adopted a floating exchange rate regime; when the country is a net importer of goods and services? ………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….. We need to talk fundamentals here. The high interest rates hence low money supply in the system hence your empty pockets could have easily arrested the inflation but our inflation is largely imported; tragically, using a flexible exchange rate. This is the simple but complex quandary the country is in coz the current… Read more »
