Chilima racing against time on ‘taskforce,’ Storms Eastern Region

“The aim is to track progress.”

Workaholic and vibrant Malawi Vice President Saulos Chilima is running out of time on the ‘taskforce business’ and he has engaged an extra gear to speed up progress.

Chilima in Mangochi

Fresh from the northern region, the firebrand politician, Chilima is this week operating from the eastern region holding progress reviews of Public Sector Reforms in District and Municipal Councils as well as inspecting public projects.

However, besides this schedule Chilima will also be finding time to Chair the Public Service Systems Review Taskforce which is racing against the 90 day deadline.

Writing on his social media utility, Facebook page Monday evening, the Vice President said: “During the same week, I will also be chairing the Public Service Systems Review Taskforce on Allowances, Procurement and Employment Contracts as we wind up towards the 90 day time-frame as mandated by His Excellency, Dr Lazarus McCarthy Chakwera, President of the Republic of Malawi”.

Chilima: We need to have good roads

Chilima indicated that he started the day with the Taskforce business and later engaged Machinga, Mangochi and Balaka District Councils as well as Mangochi Municipal Council.

The aim of the meetings, he said, was “to track progress of reforms particularly on strides aimed at achieving financial sustainability and improving service delivery” .

The Vice President added “We have since advised the Councils to isolate areas that will generate revenue especially from Tourism and Mining sectors so that these industries benefit communities”.

Chilima is expected to meet the Public Service Systems Review Taskforce Tuesday before visiting public projects under the Ministry of Defence and Agriculture in the afternoon.

All talk no beef. Chilima is wasting his time and government resources.All his reforms and restructuring gets no where as Chakwera has his own agenda. By the way Chilima if you want to play at being a soldier as you dress like one why not leave politics and become a soldier

How many task forces shall we have? It seems every issue requires a task force. Why do we waste so much time with nonsense ideas which never materialize? We are very good at launching things and before results are seen, we launch even more and in the end we achieve none. Wake up you guyz…we need results Not meeting and tours. Not introductions and No familiarization tours. It’s time for action….That’s what we want to see.

Thes2 reforms will not work as long as Chikhosi remains chief secretary. This stupid guy has messed up the whole civil service. He is giving high positions to unqualified people like Bendulo.

He is just wasting public resources with his endless visits to public institutions. Malawi is a country that is never short of praise singers. Someone is wasting public money with these visits and we are clapping hands that he is doing a good job. Chilima is a first rate conman. He fooled us while in DPP. This time he will fool himself. After all he is serving his final term as Veep. Let’s wait and see where he will be come 2025. Our beloved Chakwera will serve two terms. Where will this leave Chilima?
