United Independence Party (UIP) president Pastor Helen Singh has called on the electorate to shrug off politicians who have looted the public coffers and are seeking votes to continue their plunder.
“Unscrupulous and greedy politicians have swept the coffers and yet they are looming around to seek your sympathy to vote for them again,” observed Singh at a rally she addressed on Saturday at Monkey Bay in Mangochi.
She called on Malawians to reject politicians who are interested in self-enrichment other than developing Malawi.
Singh said Malawians are fed up with the leadership which they have and they want to see “new things beginning from politicians and other development agendas not recycled politicians who keep on ill advising the government of the day in a quest to reap hefty chunks of money at the expense of the poor.”
She said Malawians should give a chance, saying she will be a different type of female leadership unlike the incumbent Joyce Banda.
Sighn said her first point of departure to Banda-style of leadership will be to declare her assets should people vote her into office.
“I will declare my assets,” she said, criticising President Banda for taking oaths but never walk the talk.
UIP president said the problems the country is facing need a visionary leader.
