Men we trusted to lead have failed- Malawi VP Kachale

It has been long enough since the country has been dancing to the leadership tune of male presidents, it’s high time women are given a chance to lead, that was the main message the country’s vice president Khumbo Kachali took to the masses who gathered at Chitundu Primary School ground in Mayani, Dedza.

Addressing a rally Saturday in the area, Kachali called upon people to give total support for Malawi’s first female President Joyce Banda, saying her leadership has shown that women are those who have development-centered politics.

“Men have ruled us before but look here in Mayani, what do we have to show that the past leadership did? Now, through our prayers, God did not wait for the next elections to come.  He listened to our prayers and gave us Dr Joyce Banda who for the past months has managed to turn around things and the economy is now coming back to normal, this is the president we all need to cherish,” he said.

He therefore called upon fellow men to give total support to President Banda and the People’s Party (PP) led government.

“For the past decades, women have been there for us, preached our messages in their homes, have danced for us during political rallies then now that we have a famale president, why can’t we say thank you and support her? After all what she is doing is more than what we did before,” he said

Taking his turn, the party’s First Deputy Director of Youth Jimmy Bauleni Manna called upon the youths to be organised and participate in developmental activities for the betterment of the country.

“We want to change the perception that leaders have had towards us before, parties have misused us before but this is not the case with the current leadership of PP,” he said.
