Malawians from all walks of life will on Thursday 23rd March 2017 be glued to their radios as social commentator and rights activist Michael Usi is expected to hold a special ‘Address to the Nation’.
The special address will be aired on four local biggest radio stations according to an advert that is being aired on various media houses.
The selected radio stations are Zodiak, Times, MIJ and Joy.
In previous similar addresses, Usi who is also popularly known as ‘Manganya’ in the Comedy Industry has been critical to the government on its weakness.
Usi offers insights to the nation through the stage being an actor as well as an activist.
He has always maintained that Malawi has failed to make the best of independence and has been full of embarrassment 53 years after independence.
On the other hand, he also provide solutions and suggestions on how best to tackle challenges Malawian citizens face in their daily life but he has been given a deaf ear by authorities.
But Usi also expressed concern with the tendency of Malawians of not taking up matters affecting the mother Malawi.
“The problem we have in Malawi is that when organizations and individuals address social issues, nobody takes up the issues and it dies a natural death,” said Usi.
But he has always never to just sit idle and watch politicial monopoly.
It is obvious that Usi will again this time around pounce on President Peter Mutharika’s administration which has been marred by heavy corruption.
The famous scandal likely to be narrated on is that of the dubious purchase of Maize from Zambian government famously called Maizegate that led to the sispension and later firing of Agriculture Minister George Chaponda.
