Malawi political expert backs donors’ new set conditions

Chancellor College political scientist Mustafa Hussein has backed the 20 new set conditionalities donors have given to the government, saying they are of national importance.

Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe: Donors have given us new tough conditions before resuming aid

Finance Minister Goodall Gondwe: Donors have given us new tough conditions before resuming aid

“Take the condition of the Access to Information Bill for example. The donors want the bill passed before they resume aid. This is what Malawians want, this is a condition of national importance,” said Hussein in a radio interview.

He said he has examined all the 20 new conditions and found out that they all favour Malawians not the donors.

Hussein’s comments come barely days after Finance minister Goodall Gondwe said the donors have slapped the government with 20 new conditionalities before the resumption of their aid to Malawi apart from the IMF conditions.

Gondwe was optimistic that Malawi would be on track with the IMF extended credit facility in February after the IMF team examines books at Capital Hill in Lilongwe in December.

I requested Nyasatimes to list the conditions so that we can comment on them.

I will not be surprised if most of the conditions have to do with transparency in the conduct of government financial affairs, accountability, ownership of the budgetary allocations by the citizens and getting rid of government waste of public funds on luxurious perks by those in public office (including the many State Houses) at the expense of spending on health, education and other essentials.

Why does Parliament not demand the publication of the conditions?
