Malawi Congress Party (MCP) officials, who spoke before the rally at Zingwagwa Secondary School ground in Blantyre on Sunday was disrupted by rains, went to town, hitting at the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) led government for being clueless and abusive.
MCP director of youth and political podium orator of the moment, Richard Chimwendo Banda, accused the DPP for the socio-economic woes facing the country.
He said the DPP has been “clueless” only successful in unprecedented corruption.
Chimwendo Banda, who is also a legislator from Dowa, asked the DPP government to address the plight of civil servants to alleviate their suffering.
He told the meeting that MCP youth had a conference and agreed to push for salary increase of civil servants “to reflect the rising costs of fuel which leads to inflation rising.”
Chimwendo Banda said MCP is also demanding an audit of money that is remitted to the Pension Fund.
“We are aware that some of this money has not been accounted for and as such, we demand that the government should quickly address this matter [before we remove them after May 21 2019 elections],” said Chimwendo Banda.
MCP secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka also took to task DPP government for what he described as “cheating” of voters by increasing electricity tariffs while increasing load shedding hours.
The party’s president Lazarus Chakwera and his two deputies Sidik Mia and Harry Mkandawire are engaging the electorate in the Southern Region in readiness of the next year’s watershed elections.
