Minister Msungama accuses DPP  regime of failing to develop Malawi sport

Newly-appointed  Minister of Youth and Sports Ulemu Msungama said the government of President Lazarus Chakwera has a lot of work to do to improve sports in the country, saying the previous Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) failed during their time.

“There is really nothing to point at in terms of sports development by the previous DPP regime,” said Msungama.

“They let the country down big time and there are a lot of areas that we need work on,” he added.

Msungama said the new administration will review policies to ensure they have what it takes to develop sports.

The minister also faulted the DPP government for committing to build  stadia for domestic football powerhouses – Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers –  saying they are privately-owned entities  and they could build on their own and government only help them in securing land.

Msungama said government will review the stadia project for the two clubs.

But DPP spokesperson Nicholous Dausi trashed Msungama for what he called “mere political tantrums on sports development.”

“Any sane person cannot stand up and claim that the DPP government did not do any. Let’s move away from mere political tantrum, conjecture and malafidy,” said Dausi.

He said Msungama is deliberately turning a blind eye on the former government’s achievements in sports development.

i guess Kezzie Msukwa would have been more fitting for this position because he is an active sports person not this so called Nsungama. Being young does not mean one likes sports. Every since he assumed the office he seems to be finding fault with everybody and anything instead of working. The problems most of these Nyau people have never seen the inside of any office so that they should understand how an office operates.

Msungama is indeed empty headed. His thinking is below average. Look he has not set any agenda yet but busy yapping. Nyamilandu is indeed many many miles ahead of this dunderhead msungama in terms of sports development plans.

Idiot just start from where DPP stopped. You were appointed into that office because there is work in that office. If you feel the workload is too much then just resign. Out there are alot of young who can handle your office efficiently. No time for political rhetoric as campaign time is over

The campaign time is over & now is to get work ready & done in time. Stop pointing fingers to the past government. You’re incharge now taking steps ahead that’s what citizens are to see.
We need a united country even in politics should be the same. You’re pointing out the past, no man, do the job wherever is needed whether North, South or Central. We commentators, let’s not divide the country when raising up defects to be fixed.

How can government blame the opposition? Mr msungama you need to understand that all the blame rests with government, your government. Now that you are in government, we are blaming you for poor development of sports especially concerning the flames, which never win only draw and lose. Its not even funny when we go and place bets against our own national team!

What merit did Chakwera see in this guy apart from being a central region man? He can’t see the sports stadiums that DPP constructed across the country.

Stadium is not sports. When Malawi was in top form there were no these stadiums you are talking about. I guess you were born in 1994

you are right Msungama, DPP Failed to develop sports in the country, they said they will built a stadium in Blantyre to replace the dilapidated KAMUZU STADIUM, it was just lip service, look at the state of Mzuzu Stadium, pathetic. and they thought they will cool us down by building Nyasa and Wonderers stadiums? never those private teams should build their own stadiums.
