People’s Progressive Movement (PP) President Mark Katsonga has promised to reform the Agriculture Development and Market Corporation (Admarc) to become a cooperative owned by farmers should they win next year’s polls.
This, according to PPM President Mark Katsonga, will help farmers benefit from their agricultural income generating activities.
Katsonga, who spoke during the whistle-stop tour of Neno district Sunday where he also sold the party’s twenty-one point plan, also claimed that through the initiative, all profits made from domestic and export sales of produce will be distributed to farmers.
He expressed concern that most farmers remain poor despite contributing significantly to the country’s economy.
The twenty point plan is focusing on shifting the national policies to benefit citizens.
He was also optimistic that his party will form the next government, reiterating that they will abolish the consolidated account and create a “Central Government Account”.
“The new account will be more transparent to remove its vulnerability to abuse by the executive arm of government and it will be subjected to strict parliamentary oversight and quarterly audits.
“PPM vision is to provide leadership of integrity as this will guarantee the people of Malawi a secure environment, an environment conducive to a vibrant democracy and economic prosperity underpinned by good governance,” said Katsonga.
He further reiterated that PPM will break the vicious circle of poverty, corruption and injustice by promoting an open and accountable democracy, equitable and rapid socio-economic growth and total respect for the Republican and its party constitution.
