‘Malawians are watching!’, Prophet Mbewe warns President Chakwera on skyrocketing fertilizer prices

Freedom of Worship Association of Malawi (FOWAM) has written President Dr. Lazarus Chakwera, urging him to take swift action to stop the skyrocketing prices of fertilizers.

The association has warned that Malawians are watching how the Tonse Alliance government is backtracking on its campaign promise to reduce the price of fertilizer.

Prophet Mbewe: Warns government on fertilizer prices

In their open letter dated August 19, 2021, FOWAM president Prophet David Mbewe argues that the unprecedented rise in prices for the farm inputs goes against the campaign promises of the Tonse Alliance government.

“Malawians were promised that if voted into power, fertilizer price will be Four Thousand Four Hundred and Ninety Five Kwacha (K4, 495). You are now into the second year of the Tonse Alliance government, but instead of farmers benefiting from lower prices of farm inputs, the contrary is the reality,” says Mbewe in a letter he has co-signed with the association’s General Secretary Ras Jerafaya Geoffrey Phomea.

Mbewe says the increase in fertilizer prices is a clear testimony that the will of the people is taken for granted.

He has urged President Chakwera not only to remember, but must fulfill his campaign promises.

He has also asked the Office of the President to engage in fruitful discussions with fertilizer suppliers so that the price of fertilizer must go down K4, 495.

“It is our trust that you definitely want your administration to go down in history as the promises keeping administration. Please, do the needful. Malawians are watching!” Mbewe and Phomea warn.

State House Director of Communication, Sean Tsanzo Kampondeni, had not yet responded to your questionnaire on the reaction of the President.

Whoever is Supporting the Increase of Fertilizer in Malawi, He doen’t belong to Malawi. If other pipo can manage to buy at a such high price, do u think b4 u say something or u just say coz u can? These 2 Men must stick to their promises, other day they will regret. Malawians needs Cheap Fertilizers as promised

K36,000 is not too much money. Most farmers afford.

I agree with u, Doba ndi mbuzi yeni yeni because what is happening is quite the opposite on what they promised the masses. They have to fulfill their campaign promises, otherwise tangochokani mwaulemu, if u cant manage.

Correct me if am wrong koma the impression I was given during campaign was that fertilizer will be brought at lower price for everyone. Anyway, am grateful that some people in Malawi has managed to get fertilizer @ lower price but politicians next time elaborate your statements please.
