Chilima’s mindset change lecture also on Zoom: State House cancels cocktail

State House has moved in quickly and silently to cancel a cocktail party which President Lazarus Chakwera was set host Friday  at 6pm, the same time Vice President Saulos Chilima  is scheduled to a public lecture on mindset change.

Chilima: His public lecture to focus on mindset change

The cancellation has averted a potential clash and social media debate on whether it was right for State House to organize a cocktail party,  five kilometers away from the public lecture.

Chilima’s lecture was announced four weeks ago yet State House Head of Marketing Martha Chikuni issued an invitation on social media showing that President Chakwera would be busy with the cocktail while his deputy would be talking mindset change and development.

Chikuni was taken to task by social media users on opinion leader Onjezani Kenani’s Facebook wall where they said the cocktail was not necessary and it was sending a bad message.

However,  Chikuni responded that the cocktail happens every last Friday of the month but those commenting put to her way only this time it was being publicised.

Meanwhile, the public lecture by  Chilima is proceeding and will also be on Zoom apart from various Television and radio stations.

This will be the second public lecture that Chilima will be delivering after the first one on ‘Moral decadence’ at the Great Hall, Chancellor College in Zomba in 2018.

Spokesperson for the Vice President, Pilirani Phiri said all was set for the public lecture.

“The lecture is on this Friday and it will focus on mindset change as a precursor to personal development, national development and smooth implementation of public sector reforms,” said Phiri.

The lecture  will also be live on Zodiak Broadcasting Station channels as well as on Mibawa Television who are offering live coverage for free.

According to the programme that Nyasa Times has seen, the convener of the public lecture is Dr. Asiyati Chiweza, Associate Professor of Public Administration at Chancellor College.

The lecture will also include question time where the Vice President will take questions from the audience after presentation.

Chilima is also Minister of Economic Planning and Development and Public Sector Reforms. He also leads the UTM Party.

Very good initiative by the second in command, will tune in through Zoom. Looking forward to something that could go beyond and alter the status quo. This has come timely with the reforms taking momentum. Increasing Civil servants salaries is that step towards reforms. Now, this cocktailing issue each and every month is a big blow. Let them first and if theres evidence on the ground that the rubble is being cleared, only then, only then we can cocktail even every weekend, but at the moment this doesent reflect well when citizens and its economy and reeling due to the… Read more »

Everything have it’s time…! Mindset change is inn cocktail party is completely out of order at this point in time! What we know is partying, enjoying…, but starting to get our feed on the ground and do something instead of finger pointing on others like Mwenyes, Chinese or Mzungus who steel our resources…, will not help! When do we wake up from this slumper?!

Malawians, what is the fuss if some people will be at state house eating snacks whilst others opt to watch or attend the public lecture? Surely we can be able as a country to walk and chew gum at the same time?!

You should say ‘My only hope’ not ‘Our only hope’! Not everyone worships idols like you. Some of us have our brains intact
