HRDC is wrong: Chakwera still the darling of Malawians

A veiled claim by Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) that the Tonse Alliance-led government is slow and has lost direction cannot go without comment.


Chakwera: His administration remains on track despite contrary
views

This assertion is allowable only in the context of democratic fundamentals of free speech but fails to present facts as they ought to be.

The art of running government affairs vis-à-vis HRDC’s concerns presents a need for citizens and other stakeholders to demarcate with caution all the proof points that determine success and failure in a given political term of service.

Slow vs Speed

HRDC thinks in eight months of Chakwera rule, government has been slow in implementing campaign promises. What has clearly been in abundant lack are concrete examples to back these claims.

For instance, the Tonse administration has fulfilled probably one of the biggest campaign promises, Agricultural Inputs Program (AIP), which targets over 80% of the population. Recent updates from the Ministry of Agriculture indicate that over 3.2 million households have already acquired cheap farm inputs representing over 80 % success rate. At the speed the farm inputs are been distributed to all corners of the country it is safe to say few weeks from now all 3.6 million targeted households will have bought the cheap inputs.

Coupled with good and consistent rains, it is already evident that all arable land in covered in green with food and cash crops. Just days ago, a group of experts under the Famine Early Warning Systems Networks issued a report that projects a bumper harvest this year due to the AIP intervention.

In less than four months from now – even before Chakwera clocks a year in office – Malawi will experience probably the largest stock of maize ever experienced for decades.

HRDC may also want to be reminded of how the Chakwera administration has improved real income among Malawians through raising the bracket of taxable income from K45,000 to K100,000 in the very first budget. How can giving hundreds of thousands of employees more buying power be associated with slowness?

What about raising of minimum wage to K50,000? Isn’t that a promise fulfilled in time?

For a common man, these few of the many interventions already in place is evidence that the Tonse administration has conducted its business with required expedition within the confines of the law.

For other issues yet to be realized, HRDC needs to appreciate that Chakwera has 42 months to finish his first term. Judging all his promises within eight of the 42 months is being economical with truth.

Everyone will be accorded a chance to tick the proof points as they come, and at the end of his term Malawians will judge the leadership with sober minds.

Remember, everything is carved in a stone of time, and may time be the currency of our judgments.

Kumeneku timati kunyenga ndi yosakwana. Darling wandani? Oh no. Lets talk about the bloated cabinet and the useless promises that he made. Lets talk about the failure to control the crana virus and employing ma polisi to harrass innocent people who donot understand why there is a lock down. Let’s talk about the already blatant misuse of power by purchasing new vehicles to his party goons. Even anthu akumudzi can not claim kuti amvakukoma since he entered. So lekani kulemba za mti, za mabi and so on and really hold mbusa wa ngolo accountable. yosakwana.

You’re failing to know that 5 years equals 60 months AND NOT 42 plus 8 (which is 50 months)😂😂. This shows you lack thoroughness in doing your job! And this is reflected in your weak arguments.

It is now time to start engaging instituitions that are seen not to be performing directly because generally, a good working environment has been provided by the leadership. What else can a President do? We do not have provisions in our law for making executive orders

Chakwera is slowly but surely performing.The bottom line is that hr is performing AIP close to 90% , tax free band for salaried employees raised from mk45000 to mk100000 NEEF will soon start disbursing loans , construction of houses for our men in uniform has already started ,Admarc has started selling maize
at a subsidised price of mk8000 a bag akanakhala ma vendor a DPP ndi UDF bwenzi piano anthu atayamba kale kukukuta mano chimanga chikugulitsidwa pa mtengo wa mk15000 thumbs ndilikele Kaye pompa
