Chakwera speaking during a Tambala Night fundraising dinner event for MCP held in Blantyre on Friday, said citizens should reflect on the situation in the country.

He said the problems that Malawians are facing now can only be solved by MCP, a party with a national face.

Chakwera said Malawi is deep in economic crisis, highlighting the shortage of drugs in public hospital, water scarcity, frequent power outage and insecurity.

“It is clear that a few Malawians are enjoying life while the majority further slip into deep poverty,” said Chakwera.

He then called MCP members to stop the “politics of mediocrity” and serve the party which will bring rescue plan for the nation.

Chakwera said MCP is fundraising to help rebuild and prepare to get into government so that the lives of many Malawians change for the better, so that a better Malawi is realised for the majority.

He also called other political parties to join him as they offer a solution to problems that has rocked the country.

MCP president said MCP will bring “economic liberation” as the party will run government on principles of genuine accountability.

He said MCP will run government and manage public resources on principles of justice, equity, democracy and transparency.

Chakwera said MCP members should be in forefront to fund the party, saying the party believes in sacrifice, commitment and dedication

“We are aware of parties that fundraise in a dubious way. For MCP, Tambala Night is the approach we have taken and shown for fundraising,” he said.

Chakwera appealed to Malawians to trust him and MCP, saying his party will facilitate change, unleashes potential and distributes development fairly and equitably.

Speaking during the same event representing opposition Peoples Party (PP) Member of Parliament for Zomba Malosa constituency Akajuwe Roy Kachale hailed MCP for inviting them to the event.

Kachale, who caught attention of everyone when he said the slogan of MCP “kwacha” before his speech, took his time to praise Chakwera calling him a “true leader “ that every politicians has to emulate.

“I need to honour my leader of opposition here, he is true gentleman,” said Kachale, son of former president Joyce Banda.

Vice General Secretary of United Democratic front (UDF) Gerald Mponda also spoke and called for unity of purpose for opposition parties.
