Chakwera: Listening to all sides of the opinion

Chakwera said although MCP has no stand on federal system of government, its members are free to discuss it and is calling for issue based discussions on federalism other than intimidating those with opposing views.

“First of all, we have to think why some sectors are coming up with this issue. We have a lot of powers vested into the leadership. Development to reach at the grassroots has been a problem too,” Chakwera said.

“Politicizing of national development, nepotism and partisan leadership are the order of the day. A lot of people are becoming poorer day by day while a few are getting richer,” the leader of the opposition stated.

Chakwera  pointed out that development should benefit everyone regardless of regions, tribe and political affiliation.

“This country and Malawians deserve better and a better. Malawi is possible with oneness when it comes to public debate on issues ofnational importance,” says Chakwera.

He said the party is currently listening to people’s views before it make its stand.

“We are listening and possibly we will come up with a position as to what can be of benefit to all Malawians,” he said.

The Public Affairs Committee has organized a public forum on the issue in the commercial capital Blantyre whose resolution are expected to come out Tuesday.

I would like to commend MCP President Dr Lazarus Chakwera for his comment on the above issue. It is really wise and prudent for him to remain neutral and listen to majority views even though some of his party MPs including the party’s spokesperson Dr kabwila is pro-federalism. Let MCP president and its followers research properly and consult grassroots on this issue other than just toying with those calling for introduction of federalism.
