Wise One: On ridiculous proposal to introduce pension for Malawi retired political holders

“Look, former cabinet ministers and MPs die like chickens once they leave office. They are used and dumped. Late John Zingale had to put up advertisements in newspapers soliciting support to pay hospital bills yet he had been MP for five years,” Moses Dossi.

Former cabinet minister and legislator Moses Dossi is reportedly in a crusade to convince government to start paying pension for retired political office holders.

Dossi: We should not die like chickens

Dossi: We should not die like chickens

Towards this futile quest, he has penned the President, Speaker of the National Assembly Richard Msowoya, leader of opposition Lazarus Chakwera, cabinet ministers and all members of parliament (MPs)lobbying them to consider his “brilliant” proposal.

While this proposal comes at a particularly bad time due to the prevailing economic turmoil we are all experiencing, it is a proposal that should never ever resurface again; at least from anyone in control of all their faculties.

First, as has been argued,legislators and cabinet ministers enjoy lucrative contracts with higher than normal monthly earnings, handsome allowances, attractive medical scheme and other mouth-watering benefits.

Out of all this, they are supposed to save something for the rainy day. In the least, if they were indeed wise and fit for leadership in the first place, they would.

Now to ask the already overburdened tax-payer to pay them: first these bloated allowances which they mostly squander like the biblical prodigal son, then their pension because they failed to save something for the rainy day, is not only an insult to the taxpayer BUT goes against everything we expect of wise leaders – who should, as a minimum, lead by example by demonstrating a culture of saving.

Let us start here. The thrust of Dossi’s argument is that the moneys that cabinet ministers and MPs make while in office are used for political campaigns and helping constituents who demand coffins and vehicles to ferry the sick.

Two things come out clearly from his self-defeating argument.

First, he is admitting that the bloated perks that politicians get, leave everybody else so poor that they cannot afford coffins when they die. Again, that while Cabinet ministers are allocated vehicles and fuel allowances, the taxpayers –who are their bosses – cannot even access ambulance services, when sick.

I would have expected Dossi to have been on a crusade to redress this sad state of affairs, and not bring this ludicrous idea he is championing under the guise of “doing it for others”.

Secondly, with respect to the impact that these politicians (and their dubious decisions and “bad laws”) have on the masses; by Dossi’s own admission, all they have managed to do this far is to create and deepen dependency via handouts.

Thirdly, Dossi seems to imply that when a person serves as a politician, the general public and generations to come, owe them a favour.I find this preposterous because the truth is the other way around.

The current crop of politicians and their predecessors, are the ones who owe us – Malawians of this generation, and Malawians of generations to come.

Why and how?Because as we speak, we are up to our necks servicing loans (debts) for development that is neither visible nor tangible.

Future generations will service loans (debts) for money that was wasted via cash-gate, propping up cronies,paying for voyages of bloated delegations, a whole lot of imprudent “entitlements” and what have you.

Now, who owes who?

Up to this point, mind you, I am giving Hon Moses Dossi the benefit of doubt with respect to his sanity.

With the next bit, he has succeeded in removing all my doubts.

“We are talking of a person who just days, weeks or months ago was chauffer driven. They can’t just snatch away our diplomatic passports as if we are thieves. We need to be respected. We once made crucial decisions for the nation,” said Dossi.

Come on Moses! Did your father not tell you that what goes up must come down? Have you not heard the admonition to “be nice to people on your way up because you’ll meet them on your way down?”

In the vernacular, don’t we say “kuno ndi kunja kumayanja lichero?

The fact that a person was once chauffeur-driven, does not entitle them to a life-time of being spoilt. Life does not work like that. You can go up, you can come down, and vice versa.

To conclude, let me convey free advice to the current crop of politicians.Folks in Cabinet and at Parliament, ifyou do not make hay while the sun is shining, by among other things:

  • Buying policies at NICO and/or Old Mutual;
  • Making sustainable investments to see you through when you “retire”(should read lose the next election);
  • Investing in your children so that come old age,you have someone to turn to, and
  • Know when to quit so as NOT to spend your last tambala on the last futile campaign in which you will lose;

please spare us.Do not rub salt on the tax-payers’ wounds by demanding “pension”. And while you are at it, don’t even think about it!

And more importantly if politicians do not ensure that Malawi becomes a better place when in office, when they are out of office,they will face the music.They will return to reality andre-join the broke majority.

Naturally, what follows is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth;as they feel the pain that the masses are going through.

Thisdosage of the cruel reality, though belated, is important because it makes aspiring and current politicians realize why making Malawi a better place should be their priority or priorities when in power.

With respect to Dossi’s assertion that Malawi can afford this extravagant venture because “Malawi is not poor but Malawians are”; this again, defeats his absurd proposal.

If Malawi is not poor but Malawians are poor, what did the “have-been” politicians walking about with begging bowls do to change this state of affairs? Indeed what are the current crop doing to reverse this unacceptable state of affairs?

What did the veteran politicians contribute in making Malawi a better place for all?And does that earn them a pension? Definitely not in my book.

I rest my case.

  5. The Patriot says:

    Politics sometimes makes people lazy and dull! Remember the hardworking Dossi of old, before he became a politician? He would report on a football match and call himself ” the man on the touchline”. After that he joined politics , became an MP then a minister. Mr Dossi, please spare us the nonsense, we have had enough of politicians, old and new, the very old (in their 70s retired, serving ), the beautiful, the bad and the ugly. With so many politicians what has Malawi benefited? Only cashgate and corruption! Do these greedy , corrupt people really deserve our money for pension? NO! Shut up Mr Dossi and get a life, politics is not a profession, its a hoby.

    I really feel for you Dossi. But to say the truth this does not hold water. Being a cabinet minister or MP is a previlege position and if you are prudent enough one cannot die a pauper. You need to save for the rainy day.Sorry my bro this is a non starter.

  12. Mukharapwio says:

    main problem is that when people get into high positions they award themselves hefty pay,1030 night allowances per financial year these are spiced up by money collected from Amwenye/foreign businesses to gain favour.this leaves one to have huge sums of money and you start to live according to your pockets thus a string of girlfriends,donations to everyone,change of drinking place etc and you get used to that.then you retire/get fired you continue such playboy life within 4 months wham u’ve nothing u start wailing.pliz realign your expenditures you can do with nyika,spiced mphenembe,use nkhuni,mbatata,chinangwa and forgo pizza,cheese,champagne,garry daniels,italian shoes,french suits,makeup,sausage etc.u are the same people who when in government refuse vehemently when people cry that they are suffering.this is the suffering that we experience Dossi.You feel/smell it uh aha not unlike nyika with spiced mphenembe

    Moses Dossi is an attention seeking guy.He even penned Bill Gates when he was a minister in the failed party of UDF.Bill Gates never answered him.He thought Bill Gates got that fortune on a silver platter.He worked his arse 24/7 to get that fortune writing complicated Microsoft programs.He shouldn’t expect a dime from Malawian tax payers.Let him dig the field with a hole if he has nothing to do in town.Why has he remind us that he was once chauffeur driven.So what?Get a life Mr Dossi.Dont use a grey haired Chakwamba as a pawn for people to pity you.

  19. kwanunkwanu Phiri says:

    Yes let them die like chickens because they are stupid. You cant be MP, Minister and turn into begging within a short time. Come on go die, useless people.

  20. chatonda says:

    What is wrong with Asena from Lower Shire/ Chakuamba, Dossi and Zingale all of you were in positions of money but all are poorest down to earth. Do you have problem with saving because of eating Nyika and Ng’ona may be/ Please change your mindset. You are a disgrace to Malawi as a nation. Why becoming too poor after all the monies you enjoyed the other day? Shame to you all.

    Warning all the Senas, please learn from your old men and be civilized.

  26. JJ King says:

    Wise One, have you risen from the dead? You died last month and we buried you at Limbe cemetery last month.

  27. Steven Malamba says:

    With due respect Hon. Dossi is out of order by wanting government to be paying pensions to retired politicians until they die. I am a former member of parliament and I wouldn’t want government to be paying me money forever when I happily, together with the rest of my time in parliament received what was due to us at the end of our five year term. Then we cannot turn around and say give us more when we had intentionally misused what we rightfully got from government in the first place. How many retired politicians are already out there and how many will be coming out after every five years? Hon. Dossi is a wonderful wishful thinker on this one and he has goofed a great deal. And by retired politicians who does he have in mind? MPs, cabinet ministers, councillors? No way this cannot be. Ministers have almost everything free: housing, fuel, phones, guards, vehicles and big salaries. If they cant invest when all is free why should Malawians be further punished after they have left office? All politicians should always remember that one day they will be without an elected job. Hence they should plan for the future all the time. If anything Hon. Dossi should be talking about the review of the constitution on the benefits of retired presidents and Vice Presidents. They are now becoming a big team of retirees and hence a burden on the economy. Some of these are very young and will be retiring very young too. My proposition would be they should be getting benefits for the first ten years after retirement and no more. Otherwise next time Malawi will have a full classroom of retired presidents and all to be taken care of by you and me for as long as God knows? If the economy were to allow it, fine. But at the current backwards movement of the economy, I think we need to think about this seriously as Malawians. The guiding principle as we discuss this should be the economy and not individual office bearers. Let’s not bring examples of well to do countries because Malawi is not a well to do country. We should compare Malawi with Malawi! Otherwise we will not be doing justice to our country!

  39. Analyst Mwini Dimba says:

    Commenting on this Dossi noise I feel somehow it is a waste of time. But here we are talking of someone who went on a bigwalk begging in the UK at some point when he still had some little influence. Why then did he go about begging when he knows well that Malawi is rich? Foolish Dossi

  40. Bibo says:

    Being a fellow soccer lover like Moses Dossi, I have for long regarded Dossi as one of the few standouts when it comes to people whose minds are partly soccer-tainted and partly drenched in the concerns of the poor. Dossi at one time attracted my applause when he tried to hassle for funds to construct a multi-million dollar soccer stadium in Malawi way before the Bingu national stadium was even on the drawing board.According to Dossi, he had connections to do so, but the fact is he sounded like a person who cares for his country and who understands the poverty of his motherland. Dossi was chauffeur- driven prior to that and enjoyed every good thing the world of money can expose you to.

    Dossi and company then enjoyed as a politician but against the backdrop of an impoverished society he already understood with a majority who contributed to his cozy lifestyle below poverty line. Now, what happened to the Dossi whose conscience made him a good citizen? Didn’t he and his fellow former cabinet ministers not serve for the future? Were their paychecks hand to mouth?

    Dossi must understand that being a cabinet minister is not a right and you are in no way owed by the tax payer at any time. A ministerial position is a privilege that can end at any time. This is why total responsibility is required regarding investments and savings when serving as a cabinet minister.The fact is cabinet ministers in Malawi are a liability to the tax payers because they are not technocrats to change the shape of the economy and improve people’s lives, but act as political mouthpieces and messengers of the president.

    For Dossi to demand privileges and entitlements on behalf of his fellow former cabinet ministers is a sign of lack of understanding of the role and entitlements of a minister which is the result of his lack of responsibility. Tax payers don’t owe him and his friends anything.It’s unfortunate these former cabinet ministers are impoverished now, but who is to blame? I guess not the tax payer,not government but themselves.

    Well well, who the fuck is this dossi guy? Real idiot and a thief too who do you know what the hell he is talking about. Can’t he see what this country is going through? Stupid! Shut up your mouth and don’t ever talk about it again, rubbish!!!

  43. wanda says:

    Poor Dossi, still thinking like an idiot and how come you were a minister. No wonder Malawi is so poor.
    We are swimming in absolute poverty thanks to you, acheya muluzi, bingu, joyce and peter- not forgetting hastings kamuzu. Uisova.

  44. The Analyst says:

    Wise one! You should have just said buying insurance/assurance policies without mentioning NICO or OLD Mutual lest you be accused of advertising for them or failing to recognise the existence of other equally deserving insurance companies in Malawi.

    This notwithstanding, the advice about saving for a rainy day needs to be extended not just to the politicians but to the rest of us also; and needs emphasis. Below, thus . . .

    From whatever little we earn, we must save. No matter how little!

    Some are cursing me, “how can I save when my current income barely meets my basic needs e.g. food, clothing, transport, rentals e.t.c?.” To you, I say . . .

    “What each one of us calls our necessary expenditures shall always grow to equal our incomes, unless we protest to the contrary.” – George Clason (The Richest Man in Babylon)

    . . . This is why ukayamba kumene nchito or akakukweza, salary imachuluka. After a while salary ija siimakwananso and you find yourself in debt. The sin is; you adjust your expenditures upwards hence eating up all your incremental income (which takes you back to square one) or more than the incremental income (which then makes you worse off).
    . . . The problem is we confuse “wants” and “needs”. But if we prioritise, we shall realise that what we consider as our needs (things we cannot do without) are merely wants (those we can do without). Interestingly, what may be looked at as “wants” are “needs” but at a right time e.g. buying a car yoti uzikwera basi nkumazungulira matuni muno, or getting married. These are decisions that have a big impact on our ability to save. If we prioritise our expenditures, we shall always have a little something to save.
    . . . And never think that your savings are too small for a sensible investment!!! Nooo! While we think big, we can always start small. Rememeber . . .

    “Wealth, like a tree, grows from a tiny seed. The first Kwacha you save and invest today, is the seed from which your tree of wealth shall grow. The sooner you plant that seed, the sooner shall the tree grow and the sooner shall you enjoy its fruits.” – George Clason

    That way, even if a rainy day comes we shal dance to meet it n gladly swim in its waters. We shall not depend on or burden our children or friends or the government asking for alms. And most importantly we shall preseve our diginity. Kupemphatu kumachititsa manyazi!

  45. Charombanthu says:

    I entirely agree with you Wise One. Dossi’s argument does not make sense at all. By the way, does he extend this gesture to the famous national footballers this country has had and are now in dire straits? Does it extend to the famous musicians this country has produced and many other public figures who carried the Malawian flag all over the globe but are now destitute? My foot! Get life Mr D.

  46. Beaton Taombe says:

    Good article and i totally agree with the writer

  47. Libido man says:

    Agree 100 percent with your nice write up. Dos is a moron just like most of our leaders. They question is how come we elect them to into key decision making positions? Someone who can not manage finances for his household is entrusted to manage constituencies and and ministries? No wonder we are poor!!!!

  48. Pachilambo Usauchi says:

    Mr Dossi, this must not be fighting for your own course. MPs and whosoever know that being an MP is a short career that is for Five years at a minimum. Planning in this regard is paramount.

    These so called honourables when they are vying for this office, in most instances they abandon their careers to go into politics,

    Now, these MPS become millionnaires when they go to parliament. I think any sane person would plan especially drawing from the lessons from other MPS who experienced miserable lives after parliament.

    Ndasamvenso zimenezio mwamva !

  49. mtumbuka1 says:

    The wise one, I’m a big fan of yours and I appreciate the way you articulate stuff but when I read the article about Mr. Moses dosi it appeared to me like an opinion ( his personal opinion) maybe because he is sharing the bitter cake with the chakwambas of this world and the other guys who never thought of the rainy day while working. To me Mr dosi had a point, when these guys gets elected their constituencies becomes more of a parasite than supporters….so let’s give these guys something when they retire please. People like bakili will never bother anyone cos they stole enough and won’t be living in denial till they die,they were riding the bike while the Moses dosis were sitting on the carrier. These poor heroes of ours screwed up and they deserve our utmost sympathy.

  50. nobel says:

    That’s laziness kkkkkk! Can u serve as an MP or cabinet minister and fail to save for tomorrow? Oh? This reminds me; Malawi needs to ban foreign medical aid or education for govt sponsored officials if these services are to be improved.

    What a bad luck for AMoze

  52. Otanjere says:

    Spot on! Pa G-spot kuti khooo! Kodi iwe olembawe nde uti uti? Wish u were my friend. Well said.

    Gud idea, but this will have to start with the NOW legislators/Ministers not the THEN

  54. Tonse ogwira ntchito amatidula ku salary ndalama za Pension.Nawonso azidulidwa adakali pa mpando. Pension yaulere ichokera ku, kuti ikwanire ma MP kuyambira 1964.

  56. KULYOLYOPERA says:

    zopanda nzeru make hay when the sun shines in short make your savings when you are in political office not when you are out
    its very stupid for someone who was spending as if he will die tomorrow to be assisted with persons who he or she was not caring

  57. Man no sober says:

    Ana anjoka, adzifa imfa zowawa choncho ……welcome to Malawi prison

  58. ine says:

    It is my prayer that the rubbish which Dossi has proposed will not be attended to by any of the three arms of government; Executive, Legislature and Judicial.

  59. Jo says:

    Every type of contract has its good and bad side. Political appointments is one of such, when these politicians what to stand on an election they promise that they want to help people and not to enrich themselves, so what is this man talking about. Government should not listen to this theft, thousand and thousand of malawians are starving in villages lacking essential basic needs .My free advice to all who wish to be politician is that go into politics and expect nothing, if you want to be rich you will be embarraseed like Dosi.

  60. Naliyela says:

    Good critique!!! Malawians let us have a hardworking spirit and make some savings/ investments not expecting the so called retirement benefits.

  61. mbaci says:

    Thus very strange though he calls it brilliant I proposal. …After all do our politicians ever retire. ?

    1. me says:

      they don’t retire, they get booted out after losing an election.

  62. XXXXXXXXXXXX says:

    If I were Dossi I would just collapse. This truth is brutal!

  63. Zaire says:

    Mr Dosi,that’s nonsense!

  64. Malawiboy says:

    If Malawi has a pension scheme for the general population, then politicians should be entitled to it as any other citizen of Malawi.
    If it is 1 Kwacha a day for the average citizen, then that should be what they are entitled to.
    With that in mind, maybe politicians will see it in their own interests to make a pension worth getting.
    Who will pay for this?
    Don’t worry Malawians, You will.
