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.

The Global Business Roundtable is a Non-Profit Organization and is managed by global business leaders. Successful leadership is a key component in the structures of the organization.

    Chakwera 2019 Boma …….

  2. Kadauluka Kadzatera says:

    The word of God regards leadership of this world so highly probably because the leadership is entrusted with the responsibility of looking after God’s people. That is why the bible emphasizes that we should respect our leaders and in fact it urges us to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:2-3). You notice that the bible says we should pray for everyone (leaders inclusive) but it goes on to emphasize on praying for leaders. It is the leaders that portray their authority as being against Godly things because of the type of leaders that we usually have. In other words being a leader of a country is a noble and Godly service. People can be called and are called by God to lead a country. It is not a sin to lead a country but people lead countries sinfully because of their personal weaknesses. It is, therefore, unscriptural to suggest that Hon. Chakwera is lost by seeking the high office of presidency. And people should be careful with the comments they make against him as regards leadership because you never know he could be God sent!

  5. John Suzi Makhawa says:

    Chakwera you are becoming irrelevant. You think running government is like ubusa? It needs brains. Its not about miracles and manna.

  6. MATAKO says:

    Well said bwana chakwera our country needs leaders that have its interest at heart. We are a rich country in resources the problem are leaders whose interest is none other than enriching themselves. This is why our leaders do not want to eradicate corruption as it is their means to riches. We need leaders that are ethical and have serious intentions to develop our nation. I am sure God will find a way for Malawi to get read of myopic and corrupt leadership. We can not go on the way we are after 50 yrs of independence.

    Being always negative can’t change our country. Sticking to the same people who pursued into politics just to enrich themselfs, just because they you share the tribe or region, won’t get anywhere .

  18. Jim says:

    Mr Hardwik Mwenda it was no MCP who killed people it was people in MCP and those pple are not there for example Dr Muluzi was secretary general of MCP when Orton and family were abducted and Muluzi told Kamuzu that we given u a xmass gift,now can you chose who is better here.

  19. Peter says:

    THE LEADER DR. LAZ!!!!

  20. CHANCES ARE FROM GOD HIMSELF :: SAUL WAS CHANGED AND HE WAS NAMED PAUL, HE DID VERY GOOD AFFAIRS OF CHRISTIANITY.MCP IS NOW NEW MCP HAS CHANGED.
    IN THE BIBLE PRISTS, REVERENDS, PASTORS WERE TAKING PART IN POLITICIS AND THEY WERE THE ONE FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM OF PEOPLE.JOHN CHILEMBWE WAS PRIST, BUT HE JOINED POLITICIS, IN UDF THERE WAS REVEEREND DUMBO LEMANI, IN DPP [1ST] PRISTS AND REVERENDS WERE THERE, IN PP THE SAME, NOW DPP [2ND] REVERENDS AND PASTORS ARE THERE, THIS IS NOT NEWS, FIND ANTHER CHAPTER MALAWIANS
    IT IS NOT ONLY MCP IN MALAWI, FIND OUT IN THE WORLD HISTORY YOU WILL NOTE THAT REVERENDS/PASTORS/PRISTS TURNED TO POLITICAL RINGS, PLEASE IF YOU DO NOT WANT HIM, LEAVE HIM FOR MCP.

    Bambo Chakwera Musatichimwise go to church

  22. maganizo wa maganizo says:

    Iam also not forgetting that MCP killed a lot of people in the country.Do you rember,sangala,Gadama,matenje and many more.MCP will never rule this country until Jesus comes

  23. aurora says:

    u wanna be will NEVER BE THE PRESIDENT OF A NATION!

    1. Rev Golong'ondo says:

      Abale, Rev Chakwera studied Liberation Theology at college. So if you don’t know Theology, please leave him alone. What did Rev Martin Luther King Junior do in USA? What about Rev Jackson? What about your own Rev Chilembwe, Ngwira etc

  24. Alomwe Puffin Marijuana (APM) says:

    Welcome home aChakwera. Inu ndiye muli ndi vision yosintha dziko lathu. APM palibe chomwe akuganiza pa za tsogolo la dziko lathu. Akutangwanika ndizinthu za ziii, zosapindulira wina aliyense.

    Tikupempha ambuye azikutsogolerani.

  25. No body can decide who will rule Malawi apart from God who knows then some devil agents are busy castigating MCP. God knows better than anyone, dont forget DPP murdered alot of people, UDF the same mwina PP kapena. So dont waste your time and energy saying MCP sidzalamuliranso, you are no body, God is in control.

  26. Ralph says:

    be civilized guys when commenting, this MALAWI is us, not DPP, MCP, UDF etc, it’ll remain MALAWI even those parties and their life leader go. so let’s comment to build a better MALAWI.

  27. Budalazi says:

    Honestly speaking comments number 4, 13, 14 and 15 do not wish this country well. Ndinu anthu odabwitsa, if not so then you are tribalists. Take it or leave it, MCP is the only party that can assist Malawi develop. All these other so called parties are briefcase parties. Example if Bakili dies today, that is the end of UDF and if APM and Mwanamveka die today its the end of DPP. In fact DPP is the worst party full of thieves. Za Ng’ona mu MCP mukafunse Bakili kapena Gwanda. We are proud of MCP, very intac and not shaken!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. Dumisani says:

    Isn’t this Chakwera the one who received a huge salary increment some six months ago and cheated the nation that he did not? He even lied that he can show us his pay slip. That’s shameful for somebody we trusted so much. He is not in a position to point to others as greedy, let him be transformed first. Is it greedy having such salary increment, that fuel allowance,… when the nation is wailing. No politician to trust, none has people’s welfare at heart.

  35. Antobwito says:

    Bwana, the skills and knowledge you have acquired from that conference better you keep it for now and implement it later for the eagerly awaited BWAILA province where you are the President! Dont divulge more to the Sapitwas, neither the Shires but may be half to our neighboring Brothers the Nyikas! Otherwise we are rejoicing for having you Mr. President Chakwera to develop Malawi mostly the Bwaila province, the “ENGINE of MALAWI”! Real Government for Real Visionary Leader- Chakwera who puts people at heart! We are proud of you Mr./Dr. President Chakwera! Bravo, Bravo, Bravo, Bravo MCP,!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Malawi needs servant and transformational leadership like that of MCP

  37. Achimidzimidzi says:

    Welcome back, Sir. While you were away, the entertained us with his popular treason comedy. It was all laughter at Lumbadzi Police where he went to perform last week.

    However, since you are one of Malawian leaders, were you embarrassed? And how and when do you plan to transform Malawi yourself as our leader?

    Apparently, you don’t seem to have recovered from the elections defeat.

    Lastly, thanks that leaders know why we don’t trust them now.
