Chakwera offers hope for Malawi in 2020: ‘A fantastic year ahead’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera  has assured his followers that despite the loss and hardships encountered in the past year, there is reason to look forward to a better year ahead.

Chakwera:  Malawi economy favors the rich, shrinks the middle class, and crushes the poor

In his New Year address, Chakwera noted that the country’s citizens have been subjected to numerous hardships over the past year.

“Perhaps you have suffered the pain of losing friends over politics because the 2019 campaign was so divisive; Or the pain of losing a child to a curable disease because our public hospitals continue to be robbed of medical supplies through pilferage; Or the pain of losing a friend in a car accident because our public roads are death traps due to the substandard work done by those who built them.

“Or the pain of losing a business opportunity or enterprise due to an economy that favors the rich, shrinks the middle class, and crushes the poor; Or the pain of losing your income due to the unfriendly business environment that is forcing companies to cut costs by cutting jobs; Or the pain of losing your land or crops due to government policies that leave rural farmers and their crops unprotected against foreign and urban predators,” he said.

Chakwera noted that many people are entering the New Year with unhealed injuries and unresolved injustices but he offers his service as captain is no stranger to unhealed injuries and unresolved injustices.

“What I have learnt in my own journey of injury and injustice, and what I want you to remember is that if you know you are fighting for the right cause, for the right reasons, and on the right side of history, then you must never give up the fight. Now, to carry on this fight for our lives and for our country, we must renew our strength and review our battle formations,” he said.

The MCP leader said although 2019 was a bleak year, the party and its supporters managed several milestones on the campaign trail and the subsequent election trial case emanating from the May 21 elections.

“The way we do that is by looking back to see what has already been accomplished and looking forward to see what we must do to accomplish what remains undone. When you look back at 2019, you will see that you and I accomplished so much for our country.”

He concludes that although it is for the judges to decide the merits of the case, as a petitioner, he is hopeful and confident that justice will prevail.

Chakwera you should learn to accept defeat. You can help Malawi in other capacities than being president. For example you can use your party’s chairmanship of parliamentary committees to scrutinise government contracts and conduct to ensure it delivers for all. Fantastic year for us is not about you wishing or winning, it’s about you opposing the government fairly and for peace and prosperity. It’s about you condemning hrdc violence.

What hope is being offered here by Lazaro? I wish this man became a president so that Malawians know how crooked he is! He stole church money from the Malawi Assemblies of God and went into politics for riches in 2013. Unfortunately God does not bless thievery and he lost the election in 2014. This time around he is waiting for the outcome of the court case which will send him into oblivion
