Chihana says Malawi needs strong leadership to deal with economic turmoil

Alliance for Democracy (Aford ) president Enoch Chihana has said Malawi needs a strong and visionary leadership to deal with the current economic and political problems rocking the impoverished southern African nation.

“We need the leadership that can sit down and examine each sector critically and find solutions for each and every problem. That is the only way Malawi can get out of its problems,” said Chihana Monday.

Without directly referring to the Peter Mutharika administration, Chihana said there was no way one person or group can manage to deal with the current woes.

The lone Aford legislator in the National Assembly then paid tribute to former head of state Joyce Banda for incorporating him into the government of national unity which she formed soon after the collapse of the Democratic Progressive Party government following the sudden death of late president, Bingu wa Mutharika.

“I made several proposals to government when I was minister of youth and sports. I proposed an internship programme for graduates so that they would have been placed in government as they waited employment elsewhere. I proposed that former MYP bases turn into agricultural schools where our youth could go and learn agriculture instead of loitering around. i made many proposals, they are there at the ministry,” said Chihana whose party, at its peak in 1994 swept all 33 parliamentary seats in the north.

However, Chihana was still upbeat that one day he will be elected president of the country and his party will be the ruling party.

He said Aford has now brilliant ideas and ideologies very attractive to Malawians.

    Chakufwa what are you talking about? You and Amai were in government for 2 years, what have you done to Malawians and to our economy.

    People like you Enoch couldnot stand before the August House to speak about strong Leadership.

    Who is a strong leader?
    Answer: Is a leader who talk to Donors in a right way for resumption of donor aid but at the back convine with thugs to rob what he/she is suppose to look after = $30 million = mk20 billion within 2 years a shame to Chihana mathematics of Strong Leaders

    When Britain went to war with Germany in 1939 a government of national unity, a coalition, was set up to tackle the problems the country would face. In its present state of virtual collapse Malawi would certainly benefit from a government of national unity. The DPP are clearly unable to deal with the problems facing the country. Unfortunately APM is too attached to his position as President and does not seem to want to put the needs of the country before his love of power and prestige. Having stolen the election that put him in power he is clearly unwilling to relinquish the Presidency. I fear poor Malawi is destined to sink lower before the people themselves rise up and demand a change of government.

  12. Kabilaboza Kabuka says:

    Useless talk Enock, ngati chikukulephera chipani, nanga kuli boma. Ukukakamila AFORD poti anayambisa abambo ako, koma yiwala zolamula Malawi. Kagwere uko munthu wadyera iwe.

  13. Renegade says:

    This Enock is smart guy who wants a ministerial post so that he should eat what is left in this economy with his beautiful wife. Out of his speech, it looks that the guy is power hungry, gluttonous and self centred who has nothing to offer but to it what is left from economy.

  14. Mgoloso says:

    Kagwere uko Chihana,,,,munthu wakumpoto sazalamulira malawi,,,,cum wat may,,,,,akazalamulira muzandifuse dzina langa lakuchibwana,,,,,atumbuka tsankho inu

  15. The Patriot says:

    Visionary leadership indeed, mukutondeka kuusya Aford mukalimbane ndi ruling Malawi? Work hard Enock, revive Aford and grab all the 33 seats in Parliament from the North and then the nation will take you seriously.

    There a great point in what Chihana has said. Let’s look at the issue and current situation,
    not the person saying it.

  17. Clement says:

    Which strong leadership are you talking about apart from DPP? You are sick

  18. XXXXXXXXXXXX says:

    So bwana Chihana wants a Ministerial position just like JB did to him? No No No we can still hear your ideas even when you are an ordinary citizen. About you being President one day, we have no comment as we are not the masters of your destiny.

  19. Malawian!!! says:

    I don’t like this man cause he snatched Vitu K’s fiance and marry her. He left the guy in great pain he even cried like a baby in the front of the audience during prayers at The Amberssoders of Christ Ministries. Money is not everything Mr. Chihana.

    1. XXXXXXXXXXXX says:

      Sorry Vitu K but literally crying for a lady may not have been a good idea. There are plenty of them!

  20. kesterkalonga says:

    Mmmm akuzinamiza aChihana pm womwewo wakwana ngati anthu aku mpoto akulephera kuchivotera.Analephera bambo anu kuli bwanji inu.

  21. levelheaded says:

    What a trash from a confused Enock! You say Malawi needs a leader who can deal with the current economic state, at the same time you say there is no way one person or group can deal with the current woes. Is that leader not one person?

    Enock,you will answer to your father on how you are reducing your party to tatters. Your father used to be a respected figure who could wish his son to go after his legacy.

  22. alick says:

    Bwana I always wonder how you would be looking like if you were not rich. Mtumbuka weni weni ndithu kuti biiii.

  23. dannaman says:

    God gives malawi a man of God but malawians rejected him so just watch its a good idea did you saw what happen in Zambia the full president being in the front to call God’s mercy because the dame tough situation we are going through why not my mother malawi pray and fasting he say God never fails
