Chakwera promises good livelihood through National Youth Service

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president, Lazarus Chakwera, on Saturday pledged to improve lives of young people in the country by commissioning National Youth Service (NYS) which he said will help to create employment in the country.

Speaking during the whistle-stop tours in Dowa, Chakwera said it is sad that for long time Malawi youths have been abused by politicians.

“The linchpin of the MCP’s youth policy is to build the capacity of the youth as key agents for social change and economic development. This should foster the determination of young people to improve the social, political and economic fabric of society. This is why we will create National Youth Service,” said Chakwera.

Chakwera is torchbearer of the nine-party Tonse Alliance.

He said the youth will be a priority for his   government because they represent a significant and growing human resource with potential to contribute to sustainable development.

Chakwera said in the current set – up the youth lack basic opportunities to develop their potential.

“The strategies of the  various challenges in life include develop a youth leadership programme through the National Service Scheme as a  platform for involving youth at all levels in the country’s development efforts.”

Chakwera said his administration will implement fully the provisions of the youth policy, which aims to empower the youth and encourage their participation in development processes as well as reach their potential.

The opposition presidential candidate received applause from people during whistle stop tours when he announced that Malawians will buy fertilizer at K4595.

He said this will accord farmers opportunity to improve their opportunity and livelihood.

Ngati panalibe Zoviuta za MYP idatheseredwanji. It was slavery, all what they were doing is Kulima, kupanga lare. Kumenya anthu, ndikusowetsa anthu asagwirizana ndi MCP. Pioneer inalienable yankhaza zoona. Unless you were born after or too young, then you cannot know.

Very strange he wants to youth league. Imazunza anthu. Poor policy. Let young people go to school firsts and those rubish later.

Chakwera is related to John Tembo who imposed him as MCP leader. Not surprising he is talking of bringing MYP – an institution which caused so much terror and death.

We already have community colleges which are helping young people to be independent. What are you talking about. MYP never helped if anything what they were trained was to hit us , harassing us, no peace. I remember how they were slapping us while waiting for Kamuzu. At a meeting ,you could not even move to go to easy yourself. Ooh no.God brought us out of the sufferings, we cannot go back.

MYP and National Youth Service are defined by one concept – using young people to perpetrate violence in the pursuit of party political interests. We say NO to going back to MCP terror

National Youth Service and MYP have one thing in common- the misuse of young people to advance party interests using violence.

That is the version of DPP not MCP because MCP is saying Malawi Youth Service. What you can do is just wait and see.
