Off the wall of Hellen Chabunya on copying Chilima transformational idea

I quickly joined many Malawians to congratulate our President in launching the Malawi Agricultural and Industrial Investment Corporation (plc.

I eagerly tuned in to listen to this highly publicized event. What came out clearly is that this has been rushed to out maneuver Dr. Saulos Chilima’s commitments to Malawians who firstly articulated that he would institute this organization.

Our President has launched an institution with a recently appointed Board only but with No office, No operating policies, No employee at all at present.

So infact all the glitz was to launch a name…launch an idea that Dr. Chilima had already articulated.

I question here, should we then have had the President launch this at this point giving hope to populace when this at best is presently just an idea???

Resources wasted today could have been directed to farmers for much needed agricultural inputs.

Let’s not forget that this is a commercial entity with a goal to make money…we needed more thought in the tax incentives and operational approach that is dare I say it Nationalistic.

Now the President and old friend Goodall Gondwe proudly stated that they have now delivered transformation to Malawi. They then go on and proudly say that this institution that has been launched in name only will deliver tinned fish, canned fruit etc just as already pronounced by Dr. Chilima. They further copy Dr. Chilima and say pension funds will be directed to this. Didn’t we hear SKC say this already???

Take note that the cry by the business sector and farmers in particular, SME and general populace for a development bank was on premise that commercial banks were not forthcoming, expensive and lacking long term lending capacity. Now with this set up where Bank(s) are in forefront how certain are we that this will solve the hurdles earlier identified.

On a positive note though, is that this takes out concerns on government governance however, the national goal still needs to be pursued. If the way in which MSB went down we need to extremely cautious if indeed government will let this be an autonomous institution.

But talking on MSB now government says proceeds K13bn (have) been put into this new institution as government equity. Question is which institution, the idea!!!??? Is this money really still around?

In summary Malawians we have been duped, our money wasted on yet another launch in name only just so people can gain political mileage.

This madness has to stop! Stop toying with our ambitions and aspirations for Malawi… We need tangible solutions and none of these games….

Why not implement it now.What leaks from cabinet plans is what Chilima talks in public to appear as a wiser man on the block.I always clap hands to who impliments now! He claims he tails government what to do,yes,good ride Mr VP.Who scores the marks is the implimentor,now,not tomorrow.Keep on Mr VP to prove your stupidity.He believes he is the only tactical guy from CHANCO,kkkkkk wait and see,where is Kasambara Mr VP?

am so sorry to have replied this, but i see luck of reasoning in your statements. being a royal dog of the government should not make you blind to the extent of prajalism. i dont support chilima nor your side but i think you have never been in a physics and chemistry worlds where the inventor is respected much. if your party is doing everything that chilima is manifesting, it is only greedness and the will to refute his words. be civilised, look forward and think of your own things and ideas

Ellen does not know the true origin of these ideas. IF THESE IDEAS ARE COMING FROM CHILIMA, LET HIM IMPLEMENT THEM NOW! OTHERWISE HE IS NOT GETTING OUT OF DPP RULE AS VICE PRESIDENT BECAUSE HE HAS NOT FINISHED CARBON-COPYING DPP IDEAS PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!! WITH HIS BUNCH REALLY HAS NOTHING BETTER TO OFFER TO MALAWIANS EXCEPT ARRESTING PEOPLE AS HE PROMISES IN ALL HIS RALLIES! MEANING HE WILL BE A POLICEMAN, A JUDGE AND LEGISLATOR HIMSELF. ALL THESE YEARS HE HAS NOT LEARNT THAT RUNNING GOVERNMENT REQUIRES ALL THE THREE ARMS OF GOVERNMENT WHICH ARE LED BY DIFFERENT PEOPLE AND HE… Read more »

Helen , next time, do a little research on a subject before you publicize your thoughts. I know you are positioning yourself in readiness for UTM elective convention, but avoid embarrassing your leader with unprofessional write-ups like this one. To give you a tip, just google and see how planning for this institution dates back to 2014. By the way, i am not DPP. I am tambala

Between Chilima and APM, who takes from the other? This is why Chilima is not ready to quick his position – wants to take government’s plans and publicize them as his ideas. Chilima knew about this initiative long time ago when APM started announcing that government will create a Bank for Agriculture and Industrial investments.

Only stupid people can take Chilima seriously – he is a big crook like Mayi ake aja (JB)

The word transformation is not a monopoly of baby Chilima. Before him, people like Kunkuyu had their transformation what what! Chakwera was also talking about transformative leadership. So, please, find other things to attack Peter on. APM woyee!
