Peoples Progressive Movement (PPM) spokesman Redson Munlo says his party will concentrate in politics of inclusiveness in order to accommodate all Malawians when voted into power in 2014, saying it is against tendency of recycling politicians at the expense of the youth.
Munlo said this on Wednesday in Blantyre when unveiling some of the PPM’s strategies to be used to bail out some of the hardships Malawians are facing due to poor governance of the previous DPP regime.
“Most of our leaders who have ruled this country since 1964 have messed up due to party politics whereby they advance their party ideologies instead of promoting a poor Malawian living in rural areas who ushered them into power,” said Munlo.
According to Munlo, Malawians said no to the British colonialism in 1964, ejected the one party system in 1994 and its time to say no to recycled politicians who only accumulate wealth for themselves instead of developing the country.
He further accused the leaders for accommodating political figures in the cabinet instead of including other experts like business people, academicians, media experts and other professional who can contribute to the nation without party colours.
“People are tired of these recycled politicians who are only there to fatten their bellies instead of alleviating poverty of the poor man in the village,” he said.
PPM president Mark Katsonga is also on record saying the “greedy” politicians who are being recycled form one ruling party to the other are suffocating the growth of the country’s democracy.
On his part Munlo said: “I would like also to assure you that unless we change the current administration which emerged from the MCP then passed on to UDF which later formed a breakaway naming itself DPP renewed to PP, but the very same old, tired and worn out tycoons Malawi will remain as poor as it is now.”
He also clarified that PPM was not party to some politician in the grouping of 14-member opposition parties that went to Mzimba twin by-elections to campaign for ruling People’s Party.
“Let me disassociate ourselves from what Kamlepo Kalua and Gwanda Chakuamba did in Mzimba and assure Malawians that what the two did was purely on their personal interests and not for the grouping,” he said.
Munlo also disclosed that PPM accommodates the youths evidenced by the appointments of Elliot Sam and himself who are below 38 years old on the posts of National Campaign Director and Publicity Director respectively.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
