MCP pledges to fight unemployment by establishing companies

The Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has assured Malawians that it will attract investments and  establish companies once voted into power  as one way of creating  jobs to the youths who command a large population of the country.

The party made this promise on Saturday in Mzimba Solola where it conducted youth conference and a youth rally done by the party’s  second vice-president Harry Mkandawire.

Mkandawire said the government of Lazarus Chakwera and MCP will establish new companies and bring back some companies which were there in Kamuzu’s regime and also to revamp the services of Admarc.

“Due to problems Admarc is facing, Chakwera  has planned to change the fiscal calender from 1st July to 1st April so that Admarc becomes vibrant again and be able to buy all farm produce from the farmers and at good prices while offering employment to our well trained youths who are just staying idle with their papers.

“We will bring back Farmers Clubs as Kamuzu used to do and those who can manage to buy fertiliser, the price will be reasonable and affordable for everyone under universal subsidy not coupon system as it is now.

“How do you expect a chief to distribute six coupons to a village of 500 households? I urge you chiefs to start identifying people to form clubs as time is just close for MCP to win elections and start implementing these policies with confidence.

“We will soon release our manifesto so that Malawians have enough time to understand it fully before elections on 21st May, 2019,” Mkandawire said.

He then appealed to the people to vote for youthful Jacob Hara for Mzimba Solola as MP and Chakwera as president on May 21 next year.

Earlier on, the party’ deputy secretary general, Catherine Gotani Hara complained that the Northern Region is always neglected in development and she applauded Chakwera that MCP is showing love to the region as about 20 NEC members are from the North.

She then asked the MCP to consider banning the tobacco buying companies from growing their own tobacco, once in government, as it disadvantages local farmers.

Gotani Hara also assured the people that MCP government will completely end corruption that has enriched government officials at the expense of poor locals.

“For the past four years, Chakwera  has been busy criticising corruption, regionalism, quota system and tribalism, nobody from the government side echoed him,” she said.

The party also introduced Mike Bango who will represent Kasungu North and John Bitu Kawonga for Chitipa South, who patronized the rally.

MCP systematically destroyed the Malawian private sector for 30 years in power. All successful entrepreneurs of Malawian origin were murdered, sent into exile and had their properties confiscated by the Malawi Congress Party. Only businesses allowed to flourish belonged to foreigners or Kamuzu.

The MCP single handedly destroyed businesses and retarded private sector growth participation by Malawians for decades. Imagine where the country would have been if all those businesses had been allowed to flourish?

So for them to say they will be good for business is a complete joke because their record is appalling.

Chilima is well known to be a good friend of all those involved in cashgate issues.
Birds of the same feathers flock together.
Malawians, be careful with some snakes in the grass.

All that was said at this rally is stupid
1. It is not government’s responsibility to establish companies. That role is for the private sector.
2. The new tobacco act has already banned tobacco buying companies and their subsidiaries from growing tobacco
3. Catherine Gotani Hara and Harry Mkandawire were in PP where they greatly benefited from cash gate and corruption.

Holly Molly! Going back to the future. Whose stupid idea is this?

Alamu Pumani Mwakula kuba

The north has a target of the the quota system of education by the Lomwe regime which must go next year. We must work together to remove this bad government. Only Lomwe people are being considered for jobs. Imagine huge districts like Mangochi, Kasungu and Lilongwe have no ministers. The sick Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba must be defeated.

Myth of Youth Vote

There will be no youth vote in 2019. Malawian youth vote according to their tribes/regions/ethnic groups. Unfortunately, Facebook and internet are not tribal spaces in the above sense. Politicians should not be deceived that featuring a youthful presidential or parliamentary candidate will win the so called youth vote. Apart from a few Facebook followers, Malawian youths are as tribal as their parents and ancestors. I am aware that social media can ignite debates that can filter into the broader/ wider comnunities. However, I dont think Malawi has reached that level interms of social media influence; instead, social media has potential… Read more »

MCP,You are hoodwinking who? You were in power for 32 solid years,What did you do to uplift the well fare of our people?What Malawians saw are Sanjikas,mausoleums and other few things like University of Malawi,Mzuzu Karonga Rd which Banda constructed to thwart rebels who he thought they could have used in waging a revolutionary struggle from TANZANIA.In the North,the government could have developed the NYIKA NATIONAL PARK the best in the world that also could have created thousands of jobs to our people of the three REGIONS.UNFORTUNATELY,the PARK is situated in the DEAD NORTH.Eventhough the two Regions of CENTRAL AND… Read more »

You must be very stupid and shallow minded. You all know Chilima won’t win by himself because he is also as corrupt as Pitala. Let Chilima find his own votes instead of stealing from MCP.

Ndiye kuti chiyani? I think your misplaced and misguided passion for Chilima will cause heart attacks to many. Have you ever asked yourself what will happen to the movement when Chilima fails to make it as president? Humble yourselves and sometimes remember Malewezi, Mpinganjira, Aleke Banda and Gwanda of Mgwirizano. All their movements are now extinct, nonexistent and defunct and all these words put together. But they began with more fire than probably yours. You can’t compare yourselves with MCP. You have no party address, offices, constituency committees, district committees, branches, areas, and virtually no grassroots party structures where elections… Read more »

MCP, today?You don’t know what you are talking about.most of the people have no grandparents because of MCP.You can not bring anything new to this country.Those who are wishing to vote for you are not remembering how most people suffered under MCP.GOD is with this country.Ask John Tembo,he sweated side by side but he was not given the chance to rule Malawi despite so many votes he was getting from Central Region.We ask the same GOD not to give chance to MCP.
