MCP’s Kazombo praises Mutharika: ‘Time to set aside politics to develop Malawi’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) Member of Parliament for Kasungu East, Madaliso Kazombo, who is also First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, on Friday surprised many during the launch  of  consultations for developing the successor to Vision 2020 when he used his speech to highlight  the challenge of divisive politics Malawi practices putting his party and its politics on the spot.

Kazombo: Why can’t we come together with government

MCP,  led by former church cleric Lazarus Chakwera, is  criticized for inciting post-elections violence and burning and demolishing public infrastructure which is key to development.

Kazombo was invited to the launch to deliver a National Assembly commitment to Malawi Vision  on behalf of the Speaker of Parliament Catherine Gotani Hara who was presiding of the National Assembly Mid-Term Budget session which she had adjourned sine die.

According to Kazombo,  Malawi has not achieved much in the Vision 2020 mainly  due to luck of unity among politicians.

Kazombo said Malawians political leaders in the opposition are busy playing tribalistic and regionalist politics which is retrogressive .

“It’s painful to see countries that copied Malawi’s Vision 2020 implementing it while we  Malawians, the originators of the document are failing to implement it,” Kazombo said.

Kazombo, who excited the audience at BICC auditorium with his  speech, told the gathering that the main problem with Malawi politics is that the opposition parties in Malawi do not work together with government to bring development.

“Why can’t we come together with government  and join hands to develop this country?” Kazombo wondered.

Ndale sakudya! (We don’t eat politics),” Kazombo thundered to the cheering crowd.

Kazombo, who was the first to deliver a commitment  and he used the opportunity  to strongly censor  his own MCP,  which has been sabotaging development projects in Malawi in the name party politics  since 1994 when it lost power.

The MCP legislator then asked the audience to recognize efforts by President Peter Mutharika  to development Malawi  adding that  Mutharika needed support from all politicians to continue developing the country .

At this juncture, Kazombo asked the audience to clap hands for President Mutharika  for being a true statesman and the audience obliged .

The Malawi Vision 2020 strategy was launched in 1998 as the roadmap to Malawi’s Development from 1998 to 2020

The launch of the Vision 2020  Successor consultations is expected to kick start national wide  consultations on the successor Vision.

Sources privy to MCP politics say Kazombo is in the Kasungu camp agitating for the removal of Chakwera. Kazombo used the forum to hit at MCP leadership.

When a writer hides his name he’s not worth to be a reporter. Whoever listened to Kazombo knows pretty well this is not exactly what he said. Gutter journalism. Look how the ducks have taken into it hahahahahahah

Good thing is that he was not speaking on behalf of MCP. Knowing DPP, they will shower goodies on this idiot for uplifting the party’s image.

Lets call a spade a spade. Kazombo was speaking about our country Malawi not atdogoleri. Timuyamike munthuyu. Mayufinu tazidziwani kuvomereza zikakhala bwino. Kodi zowotcha ndi kugumula ma office omanga manga zija zukukondweretsani? Mudzakhala mukubwezeretsa zomwezo mmalo momanga zatsopano, komwe nkuzichedwetsa. Tiyeni tigwirane manja titukule dziko lathu, zinyau tizisiye apo
