Opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has launched its manifesto ahead of elections due to take place on May 21 2019, promising a better life for all not the few.

Chakwera: Launches MCP manifesto
MCP manifesto alunch

MCP presidential torchbearer Lazarus Chakwera launched the manifesto at Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe earlier in the day on Saturday before the public launch at Masintha Ground in Kawale Township.

Unveiling the MCP manifesto the visibly confident Chakwera said MCP has a “manifesto that guarantees wealth creation, human rights, and jobs for youth, economic growth and land reforms.”

Chakwera said creating a climate conducive to the country’s economic growth would entail job creation in the private sector and subsistence farming and youth employment.

The MCP leader said the 36-paged elections blue print also guarantees safety for person with albinism, the contentious issue at the moment.

He said MCP has put strategies in the manifesto to root out corruption in the country. Corruption is perceived as a weakness for the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

“The Malawi I want to build will have no place for corruption,” said Chakwera, a former church reverend.

Chakwera said the manifesto is guaranteeing national reconciliation, clean water for water, medicines for all and cheap fertiliser for all.

MCP leader said the party has built a clearer vision and a more coherent and emotionally compelling narrative that speaks to people’s expectations and that

In his speech, Chakwera expressed confidence of MCP victory on May 21.

“We will fight for every vote and protect that vote. We will fight in every constituency, in every ward. We will fight for all Malawians,” said Chakwera.

Chakwera said he was more certain now than ever that change was coming and MCP will win the elections resoundingly.

Nothing so special about this paper Mr Activists we have seen paper even in Muluzi tenure (vision 2020) for example including other sector plans and strategic documents. It’s too cheap for us to praise MCP bcoz of it’s manefisto. It will only make sense if you give them credit for improvement from their previous manefisto. It’s sad to see little effort made by most Pentecost churches include AG in improve socie economic development for the county. For example look at their investment in health, education and other sectors you will rank them poorly as compare to other churches and you… Read more »

I really don’t understand what you are saying. You seem to suggest that you have the monopoly of knowledge. And you sound very contradictory. How can you attack the manifesto and say it would have been better launched in 2014?

Again, what’s wrong with Mia joining MCP? Is he not a Malawian? I think you are bitter with something

Partisanship. Most people will say what they say without even reading or making sense of the document. The standard of the document i can say will not be different from that of documents of the rest. Most people cant read, those that do cannot analyse anything. If a plan does not say how stuff will be done, its tosh.

At this point they have no idea how… Read more »

I think you don’t understand the purpose of a manifesto and you simply hate MCP.

I think it’s good to appreciate other people’s efforts and learn to be optimistic and objective. Many Malawians enjoy saying it can’t happen. All they know is nothing can change. Let me tell you that Chakwera is the new president of Malawi and Chakwera will do things differently. You will actually witnesses it.

@Central The reporter failed to indicate that the 36 page document he is referring to is an abridged version, and that the full comprehensive manifesto has 72 pages.
