Malawi opposition leaders Lazarous Chakwera has called on genuine transformative leadership grounded in moral foundations for Africa and Malawi in particular to develop.
Chakwera noted that Malawi remains poorest country and pockets of poverty in other African nations can be attributed to greedy politicians who he said constantly interfere with investment projects.
“”I believe that the future of Africa and Malawi in particular is bright with all the resources that we have but we have to do business with integrity,” said Chakwera to reporters on Sunday at Kamuzu International Airport in Lilongwe on arrival from South Africa where he attended a four day Global Business roundtable conference, Sandton convention centre, Johannesburg, South Africa.
The Conference was held under the theme “Investment Opportunities in Africa”. It was sponsored by the Development Bank of South Africa and attracted reputable speakers from several countries including Ethiopia, Benin, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Nigeria, Kenya, Mozambique, Spain, Swaziland and Tanzania.
“Transformation can indeed take place within a short period of time. The problem is some politicians always interfere with procurement and what have you. This has to be discouraged”, said Chakwera.
Malawi opposition leader said Africa needs transformational leaders who set good examples to be emulated by their followers.
He said the country should ensure it adopt a culture of integrity and desist from wrongful self enrichment.
Chakwera, who was well received by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) members, said Global Business Round Table Conference will benefit Malawi as a nation.
He said the meeting was organized in order to allow political leaders and business community to find ways of tackling poverty among poor African Countries.
Chakwera said the conference gave delegates an opportunity to market Malawi to the investors from United States of America, Europe and other countries.
