Fond push for federalism: Roll out civic education to Malawi citizens

Think-tank Forum for New Direction (Fond) has said it will roll out civic education on federal system of government aimed at providing specific information  how the system works by analysing the positives and also the negatives.

Fond general secretary Professor Godwin Mkamanga told Nyasa Times after the think-tank’s meeting in Mzuzu city  members of the grouping have since agreed to adopt  federalism system for their debate on 12th October 2014 at St John of God .

The debate that was supposed to take place on 28 September but has been postponed to 12 October “to allow more stakeholders to attend.”

Mkamanga said FOND will extend formal invitations to its members, all churches, political parties, government officials, traditional leaders, business communities, current MPs and those that did not make to Parliament, NGOs, senior citizen.

FOND has also said it “ will sort services of some lawyers that will offer assistance in case of arrest of organizers of the event on ‘Pro Bono services’.”

The group said it will campaign for federalism and offer civic education to the citizens.

“FOND is currently on design stage of identifying organizations that would assist define and produce material for civic education as well defining what Federation is verses current Unitary System both its best practices as well as disadvantages,” said Mkamanga.

According to Mkamanga, Fond has  identified what it has called ‘reverse qouta system’ of selecting students into the northern region secondary schools apart from what has been discovered at Nkhatabay secondary.

“ Data is being collected from Phwezi, Chaminade, Kaseye, Ekwendeni Girls, Mary Mount, Mzuzu government, University of Mzuzu  as one way of demonstrating the evils unitary system under DPP lead government. This information will be part of presentation during debate as one such serious example.”

The group said it welcomes government respresentative to the debate “ instead of wasting resources and time to bribe our chiefs as there are not the only stakeholders in such regard.”

FOND said it is collecting data on how many students who obtained between 6-15 points that are still sitting in villages between 2010 to 2013.

“ Information that was on agenda is around 121 students are still in their respective villages and the number keeps growing year on year.”

Members of the grouping have also cautioned traditional leaders to consult their subjects to allow debate before issuance of statements that are opinionated.

The group said  North Malawi has a strong case to demand federalism , pointing out that after 50 years of independence, northern region has no air transport connection to the rest of the world  and that none of their extractive industry has aided development in northern region, citing Paladin’s uranium mine at Kayelekela in Karonga.

President  Peter Mutharika has since  urged political and religious leaders to give dialogue and reconciliation a chance, instead of dividing the country.

    Fedalism is the answer to have Universal Development in Malawi…

    Fedalism promotes Universal Government, a government which is supported in any part of Malawi despite different political affliations…Good Leaders will always be promoted, lazy and corrupt officials are easily identified and delt with by law…No recycle of corrupt leaders…

    Premiers work hand in hand with municipalities for development…Premier is the President of the State and has a right to a guard of honour by the defence forces…

    Municipalities can own companies such as Railway, City Transport,Electricity Company, Water Company,Some City Hospitals etc to render best services to the Nation…

    Fedalism promotes Development,Provincial Governments have their own budgets for development, they find ways to boost the provincial economy such as Trade and Tourism,Imports and Exports, they also own provincial hospitals and have provincial surgeons…Municipalities are created in other parts of a country eg Mchinji can be a municipality, and it can develop its own infrastructure such as municipal roads…

    Some of the disadvantages are undeveloped municipality due to corruption and lack of service delivery mount a revolt and temptations arise for it to be incoporated to a developed municipality because the people wants service delivery…

    Provincial Governorship has-its own budget-Premier-speaker-legislature-Councellors,Mayor fall in this category…Cancellors make their own Laws which are debated and promoted into constitution by the National Assembly…

Time of Nyasaland Congress Party in 1958 and multiparty Democracy in 1992 it was you mbuli were taking shit. Today central and Southern are enjoying even tommorrow will be you will will enjoy again. we northerners we are freedom fighters

    1. Kanyimbi says:

      The truth is that you are greedy and everyone knows that. Just imagine you want to close Nkhatabay secondary school because there are less northerners there. I thought this school is a national school? So why do you want more northerners there? Musatipusitse Machende anu mwamva.

    you are crazy azibambo inu.. the best way is to let north to stand alone not Federal we are tired of these issues, southern and central we will be one malawi.

    if i were president mukananya… all these its because you want power. I think Peter is renient enough on this ku mutola eti?.. you think it wil work as the way chihana did God was with him because we cried as anation and he had back up from the whole country. nde inu one region Take care mulindi ana they shall cry one day

  7. OBAMA says:

    At No. 47. Let me tell you that you are a disgrace to the people of north if indeed you are a northerner of which I doubt. If you were you wouldn’t have said that nonsense. Let me tell you that from the tone of your comment shows you are not a northerner. You are just disguising yourself just to confuse us. My mother is from north and my dad is from south but I identify myself as a true northerner. I also love south but not as some people do.

    At No. 43 if you don’t understand the freedom of expression is better you shut up. When we say federalism does not mean that dividing the country. Malawi shall be called Federal Republic of Malawi where we shall have one president who will be responsible for affairs of the all nation Malawi as some of his powers will be reduced as the states will be run by governors.

    This issue of federal is good for the following:-

    – It is also a good idea where the national president’s job becomes easier as he will not to be blamed when the other regions is not being developed. People will be blaming their own leaders in their state NOT the president.

    – The pressure to the national president will be reduced as he will be much concerned to the national security, rule of law and human rights violation than development.

    Federation is not an evil thing I had a privilege to talk to a certain Kenyan who has stayed in Malawi for a close to 6 years. She told me that federal system is one of the good idea and in fact Malawi could have adopted. It shows transparency in development. No-one will be blaming the president. She said that there they call it COUNTY. She said that one county in their country was so underdeveloped and the county governor currently was a minister of information during the unitary state like we have in Malawi now. When Kenya switched to federal system he went to his home for campaign and won the election to county governor. She said as of now this county is one of the most developing county and other countys in Kenya are going in that state to learn how this guy has done. Most countys in Kenya are emulating from this county.

    The problem with Malawians are so limited in the mind and resistant to change. They object to something before they analyze it with deeply. We always think in a closed box. Chonde a Malawi tiziyenda or tizifufuza kaye. Even when multiparty came you are the same guyz who were saying multiparty ndi nkhondo. This time you are the same people enjoying the privilege of multiparty democracy. It may start by the people you call confused but at the end of the day you will appreciate it.

    Finally my advice to the Reporters. I have heard that Uhuru Kenyatta is coming to Malawi try to ask him about federal system and he will tell you more.

The gap is widening and soon it will become as wide as a gorge, where u will fail to jump. You are so noisy.

  16. Minofu Jekete says:

    I think the idea of federalism is crazy and cannot be financed by Malawi because it is very costly for Malawi to administer. Let all Northerners go back to the North and leave the central and Southern Region to us. Give them Independence and not federalism. Let them be on their own. That would be a better solution than federalism.

    1. Please, exclude Central Region. We are also for Federalism!

    Know that every sensitive move starts from the northern region of Malawi and has never failed. why?. Because we are able to read and lead the movements. Wait and see. we are already decided and joined to avoid falling along the way. You sophisticated thieves remain in forth coming southern region state. We can easily join with our neighbor friends of Central region of which you are too much scared of. Look at your President, it is not even believing that it sleeps at state house because of forcing a bone into clay pot which to break soon. Wait and see how the intellectuals mobilize the move for the dull to dance.

    You people from North why can’t you advocate for self rule (INDIPENDENCE) that way it wiii assist you foolish people

    1. Nyasa says:

      @Uziwa-Uziwa
      They can’t advocate for independence because they know pretty well that they cannot survive even for a single minute. Have you ever seen a parasite leaving its host voluntarily? They can’t survive without us (Southern and Central regions). Let them dare do it and you will agree with me.

      1. Dumisani Chikadya says:

        The South faces hunger perennially but the north has been affected only only once. And usually food grown in the north feeds the South. Now, who needs the other to survive?

  25. Nduna Ya Mkhumba says:

    Ifenso kuno kumwera tinatopa nanu. You should actually be asking for independence. I will help you to rig so that the YES can win.

  32. CS says:

    when we are thinking about fed gov ,we should also think of dividing the country into say 5 regions, dependening on the population .for example central region shoul be two regions and southern region should be two regions as well, for it to be fair.

  33. Li says:

    i guess there are students country-wide just sitting with good grades too, i doubt they are concentrated in one region. i have been sympathetic but the more you hear from them the more you see personal motives other than the good for all. it is clearly search for power !!! anyway as long as it is a healthy debate them its welcome but spare us the thinking that the so called ‘quota system’ has affected the north region only. it smacks ignorance of highest order and this is ‘reverse nepotism’! as an academic myself i long for the day when the ‘quota system’ shall take into account the hard-to-reach schools where students are disadvantaged. the present situation perpetuates what was already happening before quota system. still the students from private schools and mission schools are the ones sending students to the university. dont forget that the much said quota selects only 10 best performing students from each districts which translates to 270 classroom space. the rest classroom space (1630 spaces) are on merit basis taking into consideration district size. i guess we need to be sincere and truthful in making these arguments. By the way, ‘quota system’ was as a result of a study of the initiative of the previous university council during Bingu’s era and it was implemented.

    1. Linga says:

      Whats wrong you? Is it fair that a student with 15 points is left out because he comes from the North and a student with 25 points picked simply because he comes from the South ? You call this uniting the country? Why should Northerners pay for rapid population growth in the South? Why should Southerners benefit for low population growth in the North? Federalism is not dividing the country. It is power-sharing. It is devolution of presidential powers so that people on grassroots are able design their own development projects without the involvement of people who come from a far.

      1. mmihavani says:

        You stupid fellow. Even people from South and Centre have been left out. By the way most of them are from the north because they cheat during exams and fail entrance tests. They cant cheat on entrance because the exams are conducted among candidates from all regions and schools. Zobera basi

    2. the one who trembles at the word of God says:

      You say merit based on population? is that merit or quota?, you fool of an academic! If you cannot see quota in “meit based on population”, then i fear for the students that you lecture to.

  34. FCK says:

    Fond formation is a good idea and their plan to conduct civic education on federalism, because it will allow people to have an informed choice of being pro or against federalism. And inviting government to the debate is also most welcome.
    Lets embrace this idea and support it so that we all as Malawians may know advantages and disadvantages which will allow this nation to forge ahead united with federal system or by the present status.I am not even convinced that Peter Mutharika can be the best person to talk of unity when He is openly practicing tribalism and nepotism and he is the one who has made Malawi to think of federalism and He is the worst President we have had, nepotistic and tribelistic unfortunately his tribesmen have no remorse they support and celebrate, so perhaps within the process of civic education they will see the need to be patriotic, otherwise no option but to have it a go.

  35. rosie says:

    kkkk but nyasa times, which is which? Oh the irony!! Federalism is a system of government in which power is divided between a national (federal) government and various regional governments (as defined by the american constitution) on the other hand federism that a fetish that revolves around fat over eating. Some of these mean look like they are supporting the latter as their tummies have been on display.. If they gave you something to report on please tell them to check their spelling next time. They are disseminating the wrong information!!! kkk maybe they do want to push for FEDERISM!! WHATEVER THAT MEANS!! HAHAHAHAHA YOU GUYS HAVE MADE MY DAY

    I am coming for that…we dont need federalism,we need seccession.In short,independence.

  39. Professor Mambosasa says:

    “Give dialogue and reconciliation a chance” says Mutharika. Does he really know what he is talking about or its just one of his several hallucinating comments. What has Mutharika himself done to try solve this problem? The problem is this man is spectacularly clueless. There are deafening cries on his desk taking dangerous proportions but like he did with the academic freedom saga, he is busy snoring on his presidential seat, perhaps dreaming about the luxuries he left in Washington. All is well with him. Mr Mutharika must be shaken to action in one way or another otherwise the man is no where near a self starter. We have a very risky man as president.

  40. Kwelume says:

    So we are representative enough. Who are we representing? I am sure if one tried to check the negatives behind this push , they will isolate them, and we will all be surprised to read the list

  41. Kangaroo-Court says:

    Why federal s being pushed now?wht z the main reasons of having this?is it power hungry?wht will br the benefits of having federal type of government?

  42. Mugonapamhanya says:

    I think the referendum should be about choosing between secession and federalism. I think that secession should be the way to go to make the people of the North happy because Federalism will never solve their problems. Federalism is a bigger form of quota system in everything. For example, a state will decide what percentage of it students should go their schools and what percentage should be left for others. Even in work places, affirmative action or group area’s act is applied. National Budget is divided proportionally distributed according to the population and size of the state. Additional resources come from taxes from private sector activities. And as you can see, the North is the automatic loser of all this. Soon after Federalism. they will start calling for secession. So don’t waste peoples’ time and money, just secede if you want to.

  47. Tozer Tsono says:

    Duh! The Quota system is divisive not people seeking a redress of their ills in a free society.
    Sanctions are diving the nations between the ruling haves and outsiders have nots
    For those practicing the Quota system, they have no sound basis for it except to favor the majority tribes in the Central and South. How can unfairly and illegally oppressing the poor folk of Northern Region be a viable government solution to lack of drive not intelligence in the South and Central?
    Why can’t you practice the Quota system when picking presidents? A Northerner can also become president since all presidents came from South and Central? Would that fly with the DPP government or people in the South and Central?

    There are so many ills visited upon the Northerners not just through education oppression but employment too. The parents and their students are left to fend for themselves – shut out in a tacit Federal System. The purpose for going to school is thwarted when Mr. Big tummy President issues a decree to maintain the Quota system. The Northerners have not be rewarded for their efforts and contributions to the so o speak support the education in the South and Central, despite being the least developed region. Besides Malawi, what other country in Africa or SADC region of nations practices the Quota system, Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, South Africa, etc,? These are some the recently independent nations. Shame on you government of Malawi with your Hutu tricks

  48. Noxy says:

    Fond Fond your statistics will entangle yourself as this will reveal that the North has benefited a lot from Malawi structures.80% of companies have in Malawi top positions filled up by Northerners.The statistics must be broad and not only Education,but also health,housing,scholarships,Agriculture,mining etc.This behaviour has demonstrated that North believes in regionalism approaches which is not health in the present time as the country now has nationalised through intermarriages and other relationships so to say.This push for federalism is advocated by a few disgruntled individuals who wants to be top politicians.I have asked many from the North most of them say these people are speaking for themselves and people look at them as mad people.A move to divert Peter Mutharikas attention from development activities to useless issues and call him a failure.Cry my beloved country.This organisation called Fond is poor and wants to get funding for stupid things.
