Malawi federalism pressure group registered

A pressure group which was  formed to campaign for federal system of government in Malawi led by Dr Bina Shaba has been registered to operate officially as  National Federation Movement (Nafemo).

Dr Bina Shawa: Federalism campaigner

Shaba said the group  will be advocating  for the adoption  of federal system of governance in Malawi.

He said some of its objectives include to  protect national resources  from corrupt few and some who desire to take leadership  roles not to serve the people but to plunder the country’s resources.

Nafemo will also encourage  citizenry  participation  in national building  by taking the government  closer to the people.

“ We want to reduce corruption  by  making the running of the government  more open to the citizens. End regionalism and tribalism and all the ills that come with them as we  systematically remove the country from the tribe and region  of the serving president  which has brought us disunity and hatred,” said Shaba.

Nafemo will also campaign for equitable  distribution of  resources so that there is no more pressure  mounted to overwhelmed Capital Hill in as far as distribution  of national resources  is concerned.

“This will see all regions  benefiting  equally from the national resources  we have.”

He said the group will ensure ruling political parties do not  hijack the progress of other country but work as true vehicles of transforming  Malawi.

A tumbuka akuona ngati federalism will save them. Aiwala kuti most of them have invested in the south and center. The north will remain underdeveloped as long as the northerner only knows to embrace a victim mentality. Federalism won’t change that

Mandela of Northerners

There are some morons that criticize without a substance. Then I wonder whether they know what is our current political system. Malawi is still using a UNITARY SYSTEM. This system gives the president absolutely powers to do anything. It means for your area to be developed you must be at the mercy of the president whether he/she likes your province. That is the reason when a president visit a certain province people congregate like Jesus has come. They will dance like maniacs some even rolling on the ground to show that he is being loved. Once he/she goes back to… Read more »

Mandela of Northerners

I will support a federalism that will unite all Malawians, make our three regions important and needing each other, and in contributing to electing the president. The most important thing is when we elect our president. Each region must be given points according to the population of its region. The Southern region 35 points, Central region 30, and Northern region 25. In order for a political party to win the presidency it must have more than 50 points. The presidency must rotate among the three provinces because it might happen two regions may go into collision and oppress the other… Read more »

The system has its positives and negatives and one of the positives is that we will hear less or no more about QUOTA system.

Good point @Shona. Unless the northerners themselves embrace the spirit of developing their homeland, nothing will change. I bet even if we had a northern president, he would not develop the north. He would build personal investments in Blantyre and Lilongwe

If the aim is to share resources I support it , emphasizing the goodness of QUOTA.Merit system has already started biting because areas that are better developed with advanced learning equipments are producing best results,and many flock to those areas.
