Chakwera (L) with Youth Decide Campaign leader Kajoloweka: Youth demand involvement in Malawi government

At a news conference held in Mzuzu, Kajoloweka said President Chakwera should include capable youth at Cabinet-level and other decision making positions to l ensure government policy benefits young people.

“The Minister of Youth should be a capable young person of 35 years or below,” said Kajoloweka.

He also said there should be transparency and accountability in all public appointments.

“We need transparency and accountability in the appointment of public officials and boards into public bodies including parastatal board,” said Kajoloweka.

He said government should also take action in any “dubious appointments and ghost workers.”

President Chakwera is yet to name a full cabinet list and other keep positions in governments including the boards of the statutory corporations.

Chakwera, 65, a former church preacher, became Malawi’s 6th President after amassing 2 607 043 votes against immediate past president Peter Mutharika’s 1 751 877 votes in the June 23 2020 fresh presidential election.

You do not have to be ‘mmasikini’ to care about ‘umasikini’! A lot of the youths are disproportionately engaged in thieving and corruption in the country because they over-value instant gratification, fame and even unaccounted-for wealth and never value societal benefits of integrity, patience and hardwork! It is enough to push for youth-friendly policies without regard to who actually effectuates those policies!!!!!!
