Vice-President Saulos Chilima has advised  Minister of Civic Education and National Unity that he will be engaged in a separate meeting to discuss the set up of the ministry and a further roadmap of the reforms that the new ministry will be embarking on.

Mtambo: We want to create a new mindset and political culture

Chilima said in his briefings on discussions with Minister on on Public Sector Reforms he heads.

He said the Ministry of Civic Education and National Unity, whose mandate is to civic educate Malawians on various social and economic issues has outlined three reform areas that include institutional and legal reforms being a new ministry.

On his part, Mtambo said seeks an urgent set up of an Advisory Team to support fast-track the processes of setting up a functional Ministry.

He also wants to institute a legal and policy framework for the Ministry of Civic Education and National Unity stipulating its mandate  and establish an institutional framework for the Ministry with reference to working relationships with the government machinery.

Mtambo said his ministry wants to develop a coordinated programme and strategy to mobilize citizens against corruption, fraud, overpricing wastage and inefficiencies in public service.

“Corruption is affecting development; citizens have not taken an active part in fighting corruption; there is no sense of ownership of government resources and public goods,” he pointed out.

“We want to create a new mindset and political culture where citizens own government and directly feel the pain when public resources and goods are misappropriated,” added the minister.

Mtambo said  his ministry want to develop an innovative radio programme in collaboration with Ministry of Information  and the Anti-Corruption Bureau on  state broadcaster MBC that provides updates, information and mobilise citizens to get engaged in the fight against corruption.

Malawi belong to the citizens

If you want people to hate corruption revalue our Kwacha.All bad things in public sector institutions happens, because everyone wants more money, for things which are too expensive and in a situation where to find money is difficult.

In fact I saw it from the beginning that this terrorists was behaving more like a free radical. This is the most silly decision where a whole president create a ministry just to appease the terrorist without any guiding TOR. It’s like building a house when you don’t have a plot. It is like you haven’t built a house at all.
