The subject for this week’s continued debate was Prof Matthews Chikaonda, who is already in the news for other reasons.
We, at the Nyasa Times have – in the interest of fairplay – pended our presentation on him until his side of the current story has been heard.
There is a school of thought advocating that the Professor be dropped from consideration all together because any further debate on him would be a waste of resources.
We stand to be guided in this regard by you our esteemed readers.
Sneak Preview next week…
Mr. Goodal Gondwe, M.P. was born on 1st December, 1936, in Kayiwonanga Village. The village is in the area of traditional authority Chief Mtwalo in Mzimba, in northern Malawi. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Bankers (FIB) and holds a B.Sc. in Economics from the University of London.
In 2008, Gondwe was voted as Africa’s best Finance Minister of the Year at the African Banker Awards, held at the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington DC, USA.
The Nyasa Times at one point was calling him the “Engine room for Malawi economic achievements.”
In focus will be the following questions:
- With the bad publicity that the “Mutharika brand” and the DPP is now wallowing in, if the DPP revisited its strategy and put Goodal as number one or confirmed him as the running mate to Peter Mutharika, would it matter at all?
- Does Goodal Gondwe stand better chances in other parties as “the main man” or a running mate?
- And most importantly, does good old Goodal still have what it takes to “save” Malawi or is he now a spent force?
