Tonse government for wealth creation, says VP Chilima

Vice President, Saulos Chilima said that the “Tonse Alliance” led government will be championing wealth creation in its quest to make life better for all Malawians.

Chilima said people are looking for jobs and good business opportunities

Chilima, who is also Minister of Economic Planning and Public Sector Reforms,  made the remarks Friday in an interview after an interface meeting at Sunbird Mount Soche in Blantyre with the heads of public offices and parastatals in the Southern Region.

“We need a good country, good leadership and a good environment; people are looking for jobs and good business opportunities and we want a country where people are independent,” he said.

Chilima said the government will strive to implement and fulfill promises the Tonse Alliance made so that Malawians should be independent from the bondage of poverty.

He said: “People should not be at the mercy of others either as beggars or surviving on handouts, this is not the kind of a country we want.

“We need new infrastructures and there are projects that are ongoing which we will continue and there are some new projects which we will have to embark on.” the vice president said after the interface meeting with parasatatals.

Chilima also assured Malawians that Government will follow legal processes to ensure that parastatals are held accountable to their previous operations that were deemed suspicious.

He, however, said that this should not be deemed as political witch-hunting but merely letting the full arm of the law to take its full course.

The Vice President started engaging heads of public institutions, parastatals, local councils and private sectors last week to set the tone and the pace for the public sector reforms.

We are being led by the most clueless leaders. You promised us universal fertiliser subsidy, one million jobs, inclusive government, stipend for the elderly, etc. These already look unachievable. Liars.

Never has there been a politician in Malawi who the masses has project intelligence on than this man, when in reality he is uninspiring, Chilima isn’t progressive, he represents everything that is wrong with us youths in politics.
Chilima is a populist who says what the masses want to hear, changing direction according to trends not principal while enjoying luxurious lifestyle.
Unfortunately Malawi youth we are yet to have our own Sankara’s Lumumba’s who are true decolonial socialist liberals

After realizing that creating 1 million jobs is impossible, he has started wealth creation. After that he will come with something different.

HAPPY FOR YOU BWANA VP, PLEASE CONSIDER GIVING CONTACTS TO DESERVING MALAWI’S
SO THAT WE CAN EMPLOY MORE PEOPLE AS WE ALSO EXPAND OUR TAX BASE.
MORE IMPORTANTLY GIVING BACK OUR JOB OF NOCMA FUEL HAULAGE THAT WAS GIVEN TO TANZANIA’S BY CORRUPT NOCMA OFFICIALS.
