Telling the Truth

I am surprised with this pledge to raise the profile of teachers to equal that of engineers, lawyers etc. How is Mutharika going to do this? This is obviously one of the empty promises Mutharika is fond of making. Where is he going to get the money to fulfill this promise?


Keep on investing more in education
Meanwhile there is no job on the market
Companies a closing down due to the water shortage and electricity loadshedding your leadership brought in
Therefore high unemployment rate.
I realy don’t understand your priorities coz all these things MUST work together.
As of now we are assured of one thing,


Education is really the beginning. Thumbs up Peter…apa bola.
