Malawi Congress Party (MCP) lawmaker and the chairperson of the Legal Affairs Committee of Parliament, Peter Chakwantha, has said the complains of many Malawians over unfavourable living conditions are dreadful and need a government with a heart for the people to listen and work towards addressing them.
Chakwantha, speaking on Capital FM’s flahgship interview program, Straight Talk, said Malawians “are suffering” under the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) rule.
“People in Malawi are sufferings. Things are not ticking,” said Chakwantha.
He said DPP is treading on unstable ground and holding the balance of power will be tough for them because of the problems they have created in the country.
“People are suffering; they don’t have drugs in the hospitals. Ambulances are grounded,” he said.
Chakwantha accused the DPP government of tweaking economic factors and cooking up macroeconomic indicators to paint a rosy picture when the situation on the ground is awful.
“Things will never work unless we change,” said Chankwantha.
“When DPP were in opposition they used to finger point Joyce Banda (former president) but now they are talking different language (as they feel the heat on the driving seat).”
Chakwantha said the renaissance MCP is moving towards “a giant in the making.”
“Malawi will be [governed] by MCP come 2019,” declared the youthful politicians.
He also dismissed reports of infighting in MCP.
“I don’t think we have squabbles. They are people who want to create divisions,” he said.
Chakwantha claimed DPP were insecure with the popularity of MCP and its president Lazarous Chakwera.
He said MCP has chances of winning next elections fair and square, saying Malawians are not happy with the Peter Mutharika administration.
Chakwantha said MCP and Chakwera are ready to provide quality leadership for Malawi.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
