The main opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has said the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is sidelining its counsellors in meetings of development programs.
MCP spokesperson Dr Jessie Kabwira made the remarks in Lilongwe on Monday during a news conference.
“It so sad that since the elections, only DPP and United Democratic Front (UDF) councillors are the one being invited to developmental meetings at district and city councils.
“The tendency of politicizing developments has been a stumbling block to the country’s economic growth and we believe it’s high time we put politics aside and move forward.
“This country is for all of us regardless of where we come from and our political affiliations. The leadership should not be on the forefront bringing in divisions,” she said.
MCP through her spokeswoman has been critical to the DPP administration and labelled President Peter Mutharika government as incompetent.
“Stop calling this government as a caring government”, Kabwila in on record saying.
Kabwira said the DPP-led government is behaving as if they are not ready to government.
