Malawians criticise Chakwera over petty trips: President should not be ‘Kwendajenda’

Malawians have taken up in various social media platforms to criticize and mock president Lazarus Chakwera over his endless trips.

Chakwera  in Lumbadzi, Dowa where he visited Green House farm to appreciate new methods and technologies the Israeli funded initiative is using to produce export quality vegetables.

Chakwera was in Lumbadzi, Dowa on Friday where he visited  the Green House vegetable structure run by Israelis.

However, some Malawians feel such trips could have been undertaken by an official in the ministry of Agriculture.

Some people have even gone to the extent of mocking him, describing him as Siku Transport, here today, there tomorrow and Kwendajenda Transport.

Undaunted Chakwera visited greenhouse vegetable structures by an Israeli company, Inoseria Commercial Limited under Government’s Greenbelt Authority.

He said the adoption of modern farming technologies is key to turning Malawi into a food self sufficient nation.

The President said the initiative is key to feeding Malawi’s internal and external markets and for enhanced revenue generation.

“We are into a productivity agenda. The idea is rather than have tomato from South Africa in our shops, this is super grade. In fact, a standard higher than what we have,” he added.

The nearly K4 billion establishment has 16 vegetable Green Houses measuring one  hundred square metres each.

Visiting a 4 billion kwacha investment is what a President should do to encourage others to invest too and expose the investment to the market. I remember Kamuzu used to visit such undertakings too. This is not spending 100 million to open a 10 million project. Neither is it spending half a billion to go lay a foundation stone whose project shall not see the light of day

Chakwera is practising MBWA – Management by walking. The Bakili style. Typical of leaders who are clueless about office affairs.

This is what happens when the job description is not understood. This guy has run out of ideas for he has tried everything in the book to convince but nothing seem to work. Fulfilling government engagements when carriedout by the whole president is quite costly when you look at the entourage involved. It is up to him as a grown-up, sane and responsible person to gauge which activities he can undertake. Just across the border in TZ you will be surprised to learn how many foreign trips Pombe Magufuli has made since he became president. With ours, he will even… Read more »

This is a very powerful piece of advice. When will we be tired of moving in circles without any tangible breakthrough as a country? I concur with you Sir, what the president is displaying should not be new to us; it has been happening before but we still seem not to have learnt from our past.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 give a guy a break please mpaka Kwendajenda? I understand this is his first year in office he needs to feel it. There are sometimes I guess that he can’t believe that indeed he is the president of the Republic. It is natural. So bear with him he will come up to his self.

A Malawi ndi choncho kusowa zokamba, president akapanda kuyendanso gossip will have it kuti akudwala. Perhaps Malawians should be taught the job description of the president to understand what the president does, or is supposed to do. Last time we had a president who was holed up at Sanjika all the time and things were happening behind his back including K5 billion worthy of fertiliser crossing our borders duty free in his name but without his knowledge……. The president is a free citizen just like anybody else in this country and is free to get out of the state house… Read more »

Brother you comment like an mcp machinery, wa ‘yufi’ who is so obsessed with chakwera/mcp to the extent of being myopic to the danger signs the president is slowly showing.Your comparison of the president’s right to that of a common citizen is even more laughable as even a standard 7 pupil can comprehend that a president dips from state coffers through our taxes where as the common citizen uses their personal hard earned money, hence the need for the presidency to be very careful with the trips as they cost a lot of money for the taxpayer. Don’t politicise this… Read more »
