Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera on Sunday ended his Southern Region tour by attending a church service at CCAP’s St Michaels and All Angels church, cheering the patients at Catholic run Mlambe Hospital before attending a meeting at Lunzu.
Chakwera, the former president of Assemblies of God Church in Malawi, who also donated some items to the patients took some time to offer prayers for the patients, asking God to heal them.
He was accompanied by his wife and some party officials clad in MCP party cloth.
There were people who cheered at Chakwera when he was leaving the hospital and he waved back to them.
Speaking later to elated MCP supporters, Chakwera said he would offer a “rescue plan” for Malawi after what he said has been wrecked by the Joyce Banda administration through the infamous cashgate scandal where billions have been plundered from the state coffers instead of developing the nation.
Chakwera said steps taken on the matter by government are largely cosmetic, warning that his administration will not tolerate corruption and nepotism.
He appealed to Malawians to trust him and MCP, saying his party will facilitate change, unleash potential and distribute development fairly and equitably.
“We are the solution to the problems as we have the experience to deal with problems that have ailed Malawi for the past 20 years and continue to face in the face today,” he said.
Chakwera urged voters to consider electing him and MCP candidates in parliamentary and local government.
