Chihana says Malawi needs strong leadership to deal with economic turmoil

Alliance for Democracy (Aford ) president Enoch Chihana has said Malawi needs a strong and visionary leadership to deal with the current economic and political problems rocking the impoverished southern African nation.

“We need the leadership that can sit down and examine each sector critically and find solutions for each and every problem. That is the only way Malawi can get out of its problems,” said Chihana Monday.

Without directly referring to the Peter Mutharika administration, Chihana said there was no way one person or group can manage to deal with the current woes.

The lone Aford legislator in the National Assembly then paid tribute to former head of state Joyce Banda for incorporating him into the government of national unity which she formed soon after the collapse of the Democratic Progressive Party government following the sudden death of late president, Bingu wa Mutharika.

“I made several proposals to government when I was minister of youth and sports. I proposed an internship programme for graduates so that they would have been placed in government as they waited employment elsewhere. I proposed that former MYP bases turn into agricultural schools where our youth could go and learn agriculture instead of loitering around. i made many proposals, they are there at the ministry,” said Chihana whose party, at its peak in 1994 swept all 33 parliamentary seats in the north.

However, Chihana was still upbeat that one day he will be elected president of the country and his party will be the ruling party.

He said Aford has now brilliant ideas and ideologies very attractive to Malawians.

When Britain went to war with Germany in 1939 a government of national unity, a coalition, was set up to tackle the problems the country would face. In its present state of virtual collapse Malawi would certainly benefit from a government of national unity. The DPP are clearly unable to deal with the problems facing the country. Unfortunately APM is too attached to his position as President and does not seem to want to put the needs of the country before his love of power and prestige. Having stolen the election that put him in power he is clearly unwilling… Read more »
