The Foundation for Democracy in Africa (FDA), a development organisation committed to promoting participatory democracy, sustainable development and economic growth throughout Africa, has hailed Malawi for putting in place policies aimed at promoting growth and citizen participation in democracy.

The organisation says policies such as the public sector reforms, if well implemented, have the potential to promote effective delivery of services to the people and allow citizens to question government whenever need arises.

FDA president Fred Oladeinde said in an interview after meeting President Peter Mutharika, he said he is impressed with the strides Malawi has made in the last two years to ensure that democracy is enjoyed by all.

Said Oladeinde: “An efficient and effective public sector is very vital in the promotion of democracy as it also opens up channels of communication between service providers and recipients, promoting mutual trust and understanding.”

Oladeinde said with such innovations and policies one can only hope that government will be more efficient in all areas that need reform.

He said: “With the streamlining in government departments, expectations are that the government will be more effective in terms of service delivery and security which is very key to bilateral relations with Malawi’s donors and countries within and outside the region.”

It is probably prudent for the opposition MCP to praise the government, every… Read more »
