Chakwera fails to live up on promise to meet Leader of Opposition

President Lazarus Chakwera has failed to live up to his promise of meeting Leader of Opposition in parliament to discuss issues of national importance.

President Chakwera: No meeting yet with opposition leader

Chakwera made the promise after taking the presidential oath that he would be meeting the Leader of Opposition in parliament every three month to exchange notes on issues of national importance.

Leader of Opposition Kondwani Nankhumwa said he has received no communication on the promised meetings.

“However, I don’t want to take it as a delayed engagement. The President has a full five years to rule this country and he has only done six months. He needs time to settle down. At an opportune time, he shall come out,” said Nankhumwa in a written response.

Chakwera is said to be at working Christmas working vacation in Chikoko Bay in Mangochi but a few weeks ago, Presidential Press Secretary, Brian Banda said the Malawi leader remained committed to fulfilling the pledge made during his inauguration on July 6 2020.

Too early to point him fingers.

The H.E has been in government for only 6 months and he inherited the government with was completely rotten.

Lets give him time and we should put him in prayers so the he sould fulfill his promises.

Who is the Leader of opposition? Because we all know there are squabbles in the Main Opposition DPP on who is the LOP. So the President does not want to take sides and legitimize Nankhumwa who has no support of the Party Leadership. Let DPP iron out their differences and provide the country with one name. HE will meet that person. Otherwise dont drag HE into internal DPP politics. PERIOD

I think it is because there is no leader of opposition yet, DPP is still fighting within itself for this position. So the right response from Nankhumwa should have been “he will meet the leader of opposition when DPP finally settles down”
