MCP will deliver on economic transformation — Chakwera

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) torch bearer in May 21 Tripartite elections, Lazarus Chakwera has said the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration has “miserably failed” to deliver on its socio-economic promises to Malawians  and  sad his party is ready  to deliver on economic transformation.

Chakwera  made the remarks on Saturday held a political rally at Gymkhana Club in the eastern city of  Zomba.

He  said it is sad that Malawians are suffering due to some negative impact of social and economic policies of the current regime which he said is favouring just few  people.

Chakwera charged that the government had lied in promising that it would fight corruption, improve living standards, transform the economy, provide good governance and ensure equity and equality.

He said there is no need for Malawians to keep DPP in power as it has failed in the five  years it has governed the country in the three key categories of often feeding Malawians lies and stealing from them and torturing them.

“DPP is a party of untruths. In its manifesto, it promised prosperity for all, but it ha sonly  delivered  prosperity to a select few; promising justice for all, but created a State where [Robert] Chasowa and [Isaa] Njaunju’s murders remain unsolved; promising security for all, but failing to even provide security for its own parliamentarians and opposition supporters being attacked by DPP cadets,” said Chalkwera.

Chakwera said with his running-mate Sidik Mia, they are geared to turn  Malawi  into  awonderful place to live with their servant leadership  as they would embrace good governance where institutions will be measured by a credit score, mobilise financial resources needed to carry out the key investments in infrastructure and services and spend public resources judiciously on the key priorities, among others.

In his thematic message of “prospering together” Chakwera hinted that, there was no way that, food meant for three  children would be enough to feed ten children, meaning to say, “all people of Malawi should be given equal opportunities” regardless of region, district and tribe that one may come from.

On this note, Chakwera emphasized that, unlike the current government, it is only MCP that is  geared and very much set to truly unite Malawians, through fairness in the distribution of opportunities.

MCP leader unveiled the Party’s Shadow MP for Zomba Central, Steven Burgess while his vice, Sidik Mia, introduced to the crowds all Shadow MP’s and Ward Councellors that in the forth coming elections that will contest in various constituencies and wards in the region.

In his turn,  Mia urged the people to use their vote as the ultimate weapon to uproot the current corrupt government administration that has only aggravated  the suffering of Malawians over the past four and half years they have been in power.

Earlier the day, business went on standstill in the Malawi’s old capital city of Zomba when the MCP demonstrated its Eastern Region political strides through a landmark  Youth Conference where over 3000 youths had gathered at Chikupila School  ground in Zomba Central Constituency led by the party’s National Youth Director, Richard Chimwendo-Banda, had matched through the city’s M1 road to mingle with mammoths crowd of supporters that gathered at Gymkana ground.

The youth conference which was the 42nd to be conducted countrywide had among other things equipped the MCP with knowledge on how be disciplined, hardworking and productive in terms of their contribution towards the development of their country, Malawi.

With due respect bwana Makwinja, the people who brought shame to MCP moved to DPP. Have you noticed that since Dausi joined DPP the so-called cadets, who can even terrorise parliament, have become worse than the MYP. DPP brutally murdered Chasowa and Njauju. There was no albino killing s during MCP. OK, you have mentioned the road passing through Chakwera area. But do you know that a railway line in the same area, lying in waste ( because DPP thinks it’s not a priority), was built during MCP?

@mtete: Nothing can be worse than MPY and MYL, as these were like Hitler’s youth groups. And MCP, almost like the Nazi Party in its terror activities.

Jodi guile amaona? Ali ndi maso Otis nkuona chitukuko? Mwina ndabwe amaona kuti nchitukuko. Chakwera is still blind. Even if you show him development, he made a decision not to see good. He started by deserting the altar, because he could not see anything good.

You are not serious Dr. Chakwera,so are telling people that Govt has done nothing,is that true?So you don’t have eyes to see.Even you don’t see the tarmac road leading to your home that it is the DPP Govt.that has done that?The first thing for you to do is telling Malawians about what your party did in the past.If you are the man of five senses you would have been ashamed of yourself.As long as I know Malawians of good will ,who remember well what your party did in the past can not vote you into the office of President.Compare yourself… Read more »

Omakwinja supporting DPP blindly. The party that has brought immerse misery to Malawians. Albino killings, Chasowa murdered, Njaunju, 21 innocent people in Mzuzu, Maize gate, tractor gate, lift gate, 145 million. Generator gate, fuel gate just to mention but a few. Zomenya anthu sitinena. Where is Nasnje port? Where is Mombera university? Where is university of marine? Fake promises thieves.
