Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) torchbearer in the May 21 2019 tripartite elections Lazarus Chakwera  and his deputy Sidik Mia on Saturday conducted whistle stop tours in Dowa where the main message was focussed on assuring people that once voted into power the party is geared to change living standards of Malawians.

Chakwera took time to lambast the governing Democtratic Progressive Party (DPP) for failing to govern the country due to growing corruption which is bleeding over growing poverty and promised the people  a better life.

He said MCP has set up good development plans which among others include uplifting lives of Malawi Police and the military, alleging that government is

stealing alloawances for the  brave soldiers from the Malawi Defence Force who are sent for peace keeping  mission in war torn countries.

On agriculture, Chakwera promised to revolutionise agriculture,saying the State produce marketor Admarc will be transformed into a commodity house to improve commodity pricing for local famers by adding value to their crops and reintroducing farmers clubs .

“Malawi is not as poor as people might think  but the the problem is corruption, lets stop corruption and use money collected through taxes efficiently,”  said Chakwera.

He also said MCP will introduce National Youth Service to train young ones into capable and ready leaders in various field of specialiation.

Among other  things, Chakwera promised that MCP will introduce a national demographic audit for the elderly medical facility that will see the aged access half the price on medicine purchased in all pharmacies.

MCP has also promised to introduce a consession tickets for students and vulnerable people when travelling in public transport.

Speaking earlier, Mia said Malawi cannot claim to be a democratic state and yet its people are living in poverty.

He said it is sad that up to now people are drinking water with pigs and dogs.

“A hungry person cannot claim freedom, our votes are about to change that. This corruption plague will surely come to an end,” said Mia, adding “we must make sure we bring change.”

For the DPP zealots (including APM) who keep accusing Chakwera that he keeps criticising government but offers no alternatives, please carefully read this clip. You will find the MCP leader and his deputy has briefly outlined what they will do after taking over government next May. We only hope DPP will not elaborate the same issues during their poorly attended meetings. We hope we will not include MCP strategies in their next manifesto. DPP are well known for stealing ideas. Remember the UTM’s 1million jobs to be created once SKC takes over government? DPP produced their own version soon after.… Read more »

Let’s suppose that MCP wins. Its reign will be dominated by fighting between Chakwera and Mia – just like it’s always been between a President and his vice, but this battle will start earlier in their tenure. They are both alpha males (read okula mitima) and it’s an unholy alliance. Both have got different agendas concerning the reasons they decided to team up. Atambala awiri salira khola limodzi…MARK MY WORDS!!!

Wait and see. You are not the decider. You will be shocked big time. MCP is a silent killer. You will be shocked with the real landslide. The MCP voters speak in soft voices in the closets of their home. Travel from Mpemba to Nsanje Boma. Travel also from Jenda to Karonga through Rumphi. You will be shocked.
