Mia promises job creation: ‘Moving Malawi forward with MCP’

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) vice president Muhammad Sidik Mia has promised that his party will shake up things when elected to govern in 2019 for effective in service delivery and job creation is on the top priority.

Mia: We will shake things up

He said this when he distributed MCP clothes to students who study close to MCP offices at Chichiri in Blantyre on Monday.

Mia said Malawians were tired of the current leadership which he accused of “failing to put in place favourable policies for the youth.”

He said once voted into power in 2019, MCP commit to creating at million jobs over five years “to ensure our people, particularly our youth, can secure and maintain good jobs that enable them to enjoy a decent life.”

Mia added: “We will concentrate investments in the sectors that are growth-oriented and job creating.”

The elections scheduled for May 21, 2019, will elect a president, members of parliament, and local councillors.

According to the Malawi Electoral Commission, the poll will be held under the theme “Consolidating Malawi Democracy through the Ballot.”

Malawi’s influential Catholic bishops have called for a “new era”, saying the country needs a “change of direction” to reverse the situation.

“We mean a total change in the way of doing things other than business as usual,” the bishops said in an April 29 pastoral letter.

The bishops said Malawi’s citizens have a duty to elect people they trust to implement their pre-election promises, or those who have demonstrated that they delivered on their promises while in previous leadership positions.

As a guide to voters, the bishops listed a number of qualities the electorate should be looking for in a leader, including honesty, selflessness, respect, decisiveness and a willingness to step down.

Yes, Hon Mia, it is possible to create jobs when MCP takes over government next year provided development projects are prioritized. First and foremost we will need a stable and robust power supply since electricity is the engine for growth in all economic sectors, particularly industry which in turn creates jobs.

Easily said than done. We need to look critically all Malawians from both sections of the political divide how we create jobs in a wholistic approach. Our population growth is currently at unsustainable growth and putting pressure on social amneties i.e. schools, medical service delivery,water and pressure on the environment-massive deforestation. We need seriously to look at how as a nation we are to address all these ills in the next ten years. I know it is easy to govern the mostly illiterate masses on quick fix promises but Malawi needs solutions to these ills now otherwise we will still… Read more »

malawi needs young fresh minds of a combination of wise n intelligent boys n girls in the diaspora n the same at home .it is an undisputed fact that our kids abroad have a better analysis of what happening home n how to turn it around.I beg to differ on the belief that Malaw’s ills needs someone within Malawi,our colleagues in the diaspora have been exposed to different esperiences which if applied correctly can prove fruitful in building a new Malawi.Job Creation by hon Mia is a good move but implementing that rhetoric into a policy that’s exactly where our… Read more »

U lying big time. Our solution is not in youths in diaspora. Poti mulimunja ndi ya muziganiza ife amene tilikuno ngopepera munama. We are brilliant and survive hardships than those who run away and only thinking of coming home as presidents. Ntchito zomwe 90% a inu uko mugwira zomvetsa chisoni

Mia my brother, these MCP guys will eat all your money and throw you away soon, you have wasted all your time and money with a party that can never win, even if you are gambling that if you come into power you will get Government contracts to reimburse your money, it won’t work cause these guys in MCP will never allow it. You will come out a poor man, MARK MY WORDS!
