There is no doubt that President Bingu wa Mutharika’s time is running short very fast. The positive thing about this is that it presents Malawi and Malawians a rare opportunity to sort out the mess the country under Mutharika is wallowing in.
To spell this out we are talking about:
· fixing the constitution,
· attending to the spiralling economy,
· introducing or revamping checks on poor governance,
· reinforcing the eroded respect for human rights, and
· in general sprucing up Malawi’s diminishing respect on the international arena.
Typical of any SWOT scenario, every opportunity comes with threats. And Malawians ought to be very conscious of these threats. It is very easy to do away with President Mutharika, who has gone past his best use by date; but it is not so easy to fill the vacuum that this will create.
In this regard, rather than ask our columnists to digest and offer solutions, the Nyasa Times wants to throw the gauntlet to Malawians. We would like to hear from our readers on the following pertinent issues:
1) Who should replace Mutharika in the event that he resigns as demanded by PAC or he has been forced out?
2) What sort of interim government should take charge during the transitional period?
3) What should Malawi do on the economic front especially with respect to the Kwacha devaluation issue?
