MP Bisnowarty challenges Malawians to focus on development, not politics

Member of Parliament for Lilongwe City Centre, David Bisnowarty has challenged his constituency and the nation at large to focus on developing Malawi and put politics aside.

“Instead of us being so focused on politics all the time, we have to change our focus to developing the country,” Bisnowarty said on Sunday.

He added, “we should work on building infrastructure in areas that are within the city and that’s why am saying let’s focus on development and bring change to the people.”

Bisnowarty was speaking after donating K100, 000 worthy of roofing materials to a woman, Margret Frank, who had a roof blown off her house last Wednesday following heavy winds in Kauma.

He encouraged the community to plant more trees to address the adverse effects of climate change like heavy winds which the area is so exposed to due to lack of trees.

“We have a big issue of global warming that is affecting the world. Kauma is one of those areas affected because it doesn’t have enough trees. There is a lot of winds and storms that are destroying houses here.

“If we plant more trees we won’t be facing such disasters, prevention is better than cure but we are certainly not doing the prevention. Last year we planted about 5000 trees but it’s not only about plant trees, it’s about building better houses that can withstand such disaster,” he said.

Christopher Jere, block leader for the area, admitted that much of the disaster in the area are happening due to the lack of trees but said the community is working hand in hand with their member of parliament to address the challenges.

    Why did this foreigner, with his meagre resources that make him as rich as a one eyed man among the blind, join Malawian politics. Was it to help us malawians or for himself? Why cant these foreigners be satisfied with victimizing us as employees? Am seek and tired of this. We need real liberation and ownership of our country. Fotseki

    During campaign you were busy ploughing area 49 up to Dzenza Secondary school road and a water bouncer was always seen watering the road everyday to prevent the infamous dust of area 25. Since Bisnowaty won election, he is no where to be seen. So what are you telling the people. If you dare to come in 2019 and start your stupid tactics, we will stone you and the tractors.

    Shortsighted, selfish, greedy (wo)men are indeed political animals, but those who care about their country, who genuinely want to see it develop, thrive, move up from the bottom of the list of the world’s poorest countries will put aside selfish aims and dedicate their lives to helping Malawi thrive. Bisnowaty is 100% correct… now let other MPs follow his drive.

    Why is this man thinking that politics and development are two different things? This is wrong as politics is a platform where development and direction of the country comes from. This man is just as useless as the rest of the DPP thieves.

    Malawians need to be involved more in politics as they continue to be screwed by people calling themselves politicians. Good politics means, responsibility, accountability and transparency and therefore good plans for all citizens. Bad politics is what is being practised in Malawi and the results are right in front of your very noses: corruption, poverty, executive arrogance, poor infrastructure, Cashgate, no water, no electricity, expensive everything, poor housing, deforestation, poor health facilities.

    So my fellow Malawians, if anyone comes to you and tells you that politics is a preserve of the thieves, tell them to screw themselves as they are the people who have brought our once beautiful country down. It is your business to have good politics and politicians who will serve your interests in parliament to bring about development the WHOLE country needs.
