MCP says corruption major problem in Malawi

Malawi Congress Partry (MCP) has said the major problem in the country is corruption and has called on President Peter Mutharika to root out the evil.

Mkaka: Corruption biggest setback in Malawi

 MCP deputy secretary general Eisenhower Mkaka said: “If we root out corruption, we will be on our way to economic development because Escom, water boards, the health system are all failing because of corruption.”

He said the major challenge for Malawi in 2017 will be how to root out corruption.

Mkaka said President Mutharika presided over a broken nation in 2016 with economic turmoil, saying state of affairs crumbled ranging from key sectors of agriculture. Education and health.

“The year 2016 has been one of the worse years economically,” said Mkaka. “Everything has failed.”

But ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) spokesman said despite the country facing “serious challenges”, there are initiatives being undertaken to revive the economy and crackdown of graft.

To me rooting out corruption means removing DPP from power. DPP is the axis of corruption in Malawi.

We will continue to see corrupt practices as long as DPP is in power.

When corruption has become a deep rooted network, it prevails everywhere. At its level in Malawi, it simply indicates that it started some 40 years ago;just very difficult to eradicate it by lip service.Chakwera said it that all previous governments have failed to remove it and added that there is no one person with gravitas to correct it.
