Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe: Donors coming back

Gondwe said the European Union has already committed US30 million for the budgetary support whilst the World Bank has committed US80 million for the budgetary support.

Economists say this will improve the ever dwindling economy of the country.

EU and World Bank officials were not available for comment but Malawi is on track with the IMF extended credit facility which has gave confidence to donors on how the government is using its finances.

Gondwe said this on Friday in Lilongwe when EU was signing a K40 billion agreement with the government on a justice project.

The project will see 100000 poor ordinary Malawians accessing lawyers to be paid for by the project, ordinary people not walking long distances to seek justice in courts of law and decongestion in prisons.

Courts, police, prisons and Malawi Human Rights Commission will directly benefit from the project.

    For a number of years now,Malawi has been in last 10 poorest countries in the world.Shame!!! This is not accidental,but a sustained economic sabotage by Muthalika and his hungry gangs of wolves.Certainly,Malawi has impressive natural resources to turn the nation into a bread- basket of the region,but ineptitude,uncontrolled corruption,lack of transparency,nepotism and political instability are viciously hindering national economic growth despite the fact that we have one of the best Finance Ministers in the continent.The President we have or we have been having,are in the first place,deadly corrupt and above the law,they have no notion atall about economic planning.For instance,Muthalika has been hiring private Jets for his own interests while telling people to eat rats and grasshoppers.The first one the government paid US$361million transporting myriad of his Lomwe illiterate junks to the gaze on NYC Skyscrapers,the second one also involved millions of dollars to Ethiopia to receive pseudo PHd degree,he also hired a Jet to Nigeria to receive a useless PHd degree also costing the Malawi’s poor millions of dollars and most recently,he used US$693 million to hire a Jet to the UN Conference in NY carried with him multitude of useless homeboys and girls.Now what kind of economy under these wastefulness scenarios would hold on or expand to the fullest.As long as Malawians are accustomed to elect leaders of their tribal affiliations as if other groups or societies are damned.For your information,there are uncountable skilled and brilliant intellectuals from other ethnic groups who would play formidable roles in building our country to the next generations.Right now,not only the Tumbukas are living under inhuman treatments,but all Malawians,Chewas,Lomwes,Yaos,Senas,Ngonis and the rest.Mind you brothers and sisters,we are running behind time,this is 21st century and we are tragically stagnant,what is the future of our children,their children and future generations. Name callings: ALomwe,ATumbuka,ASena,A ngoni,AYao,ATonga and the rest will never ever develop our country instead we shall remain political lepers of Africa and laughing stock of the World.MAY GOD HELP US!!!!

    Here is more money for cashgate.

  5. The Patriot says:

    Good news but we hope our leaders have learnt a big lesson…..avoid cashgate and be accountable! Tisamve kuti wina akufuna kugula ndege!!!

    At long last, this is good news. Access to legal redress is an indispensable component of a democratic system and rule of law.

    It it also encouraging that the financial performance benchmarks are on track to a point that some loans will begin to trickle into the Government coffers.

    However, there remain shocking and embarrassing instances of financial mismanagement some of which apparently, have called for refunds by the donors. The refunds will mean a drain of the meager resources from other essential allocations.

    It is hoped that the culprits will be dealt with the full force of the law. There is no room for impunity.

  7. Satehouse says:

    This is not a government to trust with donor money. Any donor giving money to Malawi govt is doing so at owners risk because the money will certainly be stolen by govt officials.
