Usi held village to village meetings and Imbizos in Mulanje Central constituency where he is also contesting as a member of parliament.

“It is not acceptable that in 2019, 54 years after independence we still have families with no food,” lamented Usi.

Usi also said lack of farm inputs, markets for agricultural produce and high unemployment in the district, are heavily contributing to high poverty levels.

“This district is blessed with lots of farm produce such as sweet potato,  maize and fruits but the area has not adequately benefited from these due to poor markets.”

“Farmers end up selling these produce for the sake of clearing their storage as opposed to making profits,” said Usi.

Usi has since promised to search for reliable markets for farm produce as cost of fertilizers is universally subsidized to suit every farmer.

“The UTM-led government will reduce price for fertilizers at the same time provide reliable markets for farm produces to make sure that farmers benefit from the farming and lives are improved,” assured Usi.

“We are also going to create 1million jobs in the first 12 months so as to deal with the high levels of unemployment in the country and here in Mulanje in particular,” explained Usi.

Usi held a number of imbizos in Mulanje central constituency including at Mlatha, Zipangani and Golden.

A camera does not lie. No wonder, too much propaganda. Amalawi ambiri tidapanga kale chiganizo ndichifukwa chake kwinaku kukapezeka anthu ndiye kuti ndi ana okonda zisudzo nndi zina zoterozo.

These are the type politics that propagate poverty in Malawi. We don’t want such nonsense and this madness must stop. You mean you are shocked to others poverty levels today? You did not know all this time? Then shut up and stop politics. I for one can report that I witness poverty everywhere I go in Malawi. Say in Mwaza, Phalombe, Machinga, Ntcheu, Dowa, Lilongwe, Mzimba and Karonga. To be shocked today it’s very surprising and indeed shocking!

When I was in ‘varsity in the 1970s, it was difficult to obtain a doctoral degree. Today, there are so many. Doctoral degrees. (Finish the the rest of my thoughts pls)
