President of the main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP), Lazarus Chakwera on Saturday asked President Peter Mutharika to explain to Malawians why the Head of State is maintaining the Health Insurance Policy in United States of America.
Chakwera was addressing a political rally at Kaliyeka School Ground ahead of 1 November by-elections polls.
Mutharika told a news conference at Kamuzu Palace that he was disappointed that some people were spreading false information about his health.
The Malawi leader reasoned that had it been that he was ill he would not have returned from USA because he has good medical insurance policy in America.
But Chakwera asked the President to explain to Malawians why he is maintaining the health insurance policy in USA and yet fail to improve the health delivery services in the country which he is ruling.
“This is a clear testimony that the President has no trust in his country’s health care system that is why all his children are in USA. As Malawians do you really believe that this kind of a person can develop this country,” said Chakwera to the mammoth of crowd who unveiled themselves to the rally.
During the rally, Chakwera said MCP will win in all five wards and one constituency.
Chakwera said MCP is now very strong than ever before.
“We are becoming strong because Malawians have seen that DPP has failed to run this country,” said Chakwera.
Chakwera accused the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led Government of stripping assets and bankrupting not only ESCOM but even to other parastatals.
“There is rampant corruption at ESCOM procurement is being done without tender awarding contracts to party zealots,” claimed Chakwera.
Meanwhile, Chakwera has sent a stern warning to MCP members to avoid being used by the ruling elites.
“I know how much money are you getting, I know where you are meeting, one day I will not hastate but to reveal all the clandestine deals of double standards that you are doing,” said Chakwera.
Chakwera and his Vice President Richard Msowoya have been campaigning in all areas where there will be elections.
Places where there will be elections include; Kasungu Bunda ward, Lilongwe Kaliyeka ward, Dedza Bembeke ward and Zomba Sadzi and not forgetting Mchinji south Constituency.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
