Chilima reaffirms commitment to champion implementation of national plans

Vice President Saulos Klaus Chilima has reaffirmed the commitment by his Ministry of Economic Planning and Development to champion the implementation of national plans.

Chilima: It is indeed high time we went beyond political freedom to inclusive wealth creation and self-reliance.

Chilima has also assured that his ministry will ensure that relevant policies are in place while the National Planning Commission (NPC) becomes the permanent home for defining the country’s long and medium term development plans.

The Vice President made the remarks Thursday morning when he virtually joined President Lazarus Chakwera at the inaugural National Development Conference in Lilongwe from Mount Soche Hotel.

Chilima is currently in Blantyre engaging senior management for the Agricultural Development and Marketing Corporation (ADMARC), Pesticides Control Board (PCB) and Smallholder Farmer’s Fertiliser Revolving Fund (SFFRFM) on Public Sector Reforms.

“As per the theme of the conference, fellow Malawians it is indeed high time we went beyond political freedom to inclusive wealth creation and self-reliance. Meanwhile, I have continued with my meetings here in Blantyre and I will give you updates later in the day,” he said.

Before he asked Chakwera to open the conference, Chilima joined previous speakers in commending the NPC for organising the conference under the theme: Beyond Political Freedom to Inclusive Wealth Creation and Self-Reliance.

Bwana SKC you are a very smart and in fact outsmarting Bwana Chakwera. For you are announcing all these initiatives on a daily basis to claim credit if any succeed and improve the functioning of the department or government and if they do not to say that the failure is owned by Chakwera as he did not support you. Chakwera should wake up. Wake up now.

Mr chilima also prioritise financial support to the newly established kokoliko holdings limited. That company can help end poverty for its mcp founders.

MPH = Meritocracy Pragmatism Honesty. This can apply to any country though it comes from Lee Kwan Yew of Singapore. Of course, Malawi will never become Singapore. But with MPH, we can make some progress.

Very true but do you expect the mediocre class of MPs we have in Malawi to accept a government based on Meritocracy? We would need a dictator like Lee Kwan Yew to impose Meritocracy. Otherwise every MP from the ruling party wants to be a Minister.
