‘Stop blaming government!’ Opposition parties told

66

Opposition parties in Malawi have been urged to join government in finding solutions of mitigating the social and economic challenges the country has been swallowed up with.

This has follows the developments that politics in Malawi has been reduced to parties interest without the welfare of the people.

In an interview with Malawi24, President of Umodzi Party Professor John Chisi said Malawian politics is conducted at a level of inefficiency which is a direct result of decades of faulty socio-political traditions.

Chisi added that the response to Malawi’s political problems must be systemic, and must take into account every aspect of the national life of citizens. Umozi Leader cited the failure by leader of Opposition and Malawi Congress Party President Lazarus Chakwera to provide fruitful solutions.

Chisi: Bemoans lack of cooperation.

According to Chisi, there has to been no time when politicians from across the political divide in country have united on certain strategic issues and some crucial moments.

Chisi argues that both opposition and government have failed to worked together to redeem a vital national partnership.

“If Chakwera was leading us as opposition leader, this could not have happened. Him being the leader of opposition, he has all the power to negotiate with donors. He is mandated to provide solutions to government rather than just criticizing. It is negligible and superficial on the face of the nation’s problems. And true still, this act does not reach the very core of our national problems. We should not forget that politicians operate in a system; and we all have a role to play in this system to correct its sorry state.

“What needs to be done for politicians is to put Malawi ahead of parties and mere wielding of power borders on socio-cultural, political and civic consciousness factors that must be entrenched, before any meaningful structural and physical development,” explained Chisi.

He further implied that Malawi is not going to endure these hard moments unless it goes back to donors. In absence of 40% the country will not be able to get drugs and fuel.

He pointed Umozi as the only party that has tried to be critique to today’s Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) administration.

Chakwera: Drilled.

Stated Chisi, “The only way to solve these problems is going back to donors with clear strategy and negotiates despite the likes of Goodall Gondwe have already spoken on behalf of donors that they are not coming back yet donors never told us. We have been blinded and Malawians don’t understand the consequences of that is closing doors for donors.

“As far as Malawi is concerned we have never heard donors saying they are not coming back. There is hope that donors can still give us money. We are the only party as Umozi that has told the government what to do, because government has been saying that we should give alternative views and advised on creating a think tank for people to negotiate on our behalf. In absence of 40% the country will not be able to run.”

Accordingly, the perpetual nay saying of opposition parties, need to change. Socio-cultural, political and civic consciousness is necessary precursors to other advancements in a nation’s development. For decades Malawi opposition has been good at towing down the government’s line.

  1. Vuto si opposition ayi koma Boma ili ndilopanga zinthu mobisa.

    A president athu ndi Mr Know It All. Samafuna nzeru za ena.

    Mr Chisi mwayiwala inu kuti opposition inathandiza maganizo kuti asagulitse banki, koma linatenga opposition side useless.

  2. Why do you go to opposition when you are stuck. When things are oky you fail to extend. the olive branch to them. The problems locking this country are man made. The manufacturers are DPP. Let them find solutions. Kodi abale wap kalyala amayimba bell.

  3. African politics is like hunger power but not offering concrete solutions to what people are going through but condemnation on gvt instead of supporting and work together for the people and not individual party or leader.

  4. Aaaa ndani amene akamba zamenezi kulibwino chisi unkhale bili ware wakamba vinthu vaupuwa mani nichita kukambila pitala ni hippo crocodilo sanya chipuwa munthu kuti ungene kuma barbashop kupeza kuti magesi kuli ok

  5. Bwana Chisi,

    The opposition is doing the right thing not the way you are thinking Bwana:
    They are demanding to have a full report of the MWK92bn .
    They want a full report of MWK577bn
    They want a full report of the people who went on a UN trip with Peter
    They want to know the amount of money which was spent on a UN trip
    They want a full report on Chasowa’s death
    They want a full report on the death of Njauju of ACB
    They wand a full report on the why Bingu was given the name of Danneil Phiri immediately after his death.

    Now Bwana Chisi , where does the claim of not wanting to work with the DPP government coming in ? Do you want Malawians not to talk in their democratic country ?

    We are all ware that there is something which you are fighting for your family only not for the nation . All that you are talking only fits you and your family members , don’t worry you will get it , we are all aware of your evil plans .

  6. Kubwera kwa chakwera ku mcp ndinkaona ngati tiona opposition yabwino kusiyana ndiya ababa aja (JZU).Koma mmmmmmm worst opposition. Bibi yeniyeni. Kabwila kumangolalata ngati munthu opanda ubongo.

  9. Mr .J. Chisi mwanena zanzeru, onse andale muno mu Malawi tikadakhala ndimaganizo otelo dziko lathuli bwezi lilipatali, chakula ndikusa vomeleza chomwe nzako ali, basi kumangokokana m’malo moti tithandizane nzeru zotukula dziko. Ndiye tiakonzeko a Doice wa Amikondo, DPP sidakhalepo chipani chotsutsa chifukwa ticket yomwe imalamula idali ya DPP, pamene PP sidalamulirepo boma, chifukwa apresident awo amayendera chiphaso DPP osati chawo cha Pp. Inu Amikondo mudavotelapo PP ndikupambana kulamula dziko? Boza yaye takana kuwapotoza amalawi.

  10. Dziko ndi lathu lifunika kupeleka njila kuti litukuke osamangotsutsa ngati mcp kusutsila jealosy. Kulankhula kwa mzeru bola andale athu akanatelo dziko likanapindula koma otsutsa akumalawi ndi oasautsa dziko.

Inatikwana amalawi ndithu mitundu yonse kupatula achewa inadzunzika ndi nkhaza za chipani chimenechi poti achewa sankadula makadi mkona amaifunabe koma the rest mitundu inayi palibe angakhumbire za mcp chipani chinadzunza ichi ambiri amakuwakuwa apa alekedza 15 years za mcp amangomva sanadziwone koma ifeyo tayambira 20 kupita kutsogoloko sitingachite kuvotera mcp achewa omwewo

  12. first ask the donors the reason why they don’t want to help malawi. becouse the government knows the truth but they tell you lies.from there then we can help tO find the to aproach the donors. becouse to my side I know that the government they don’nt want the to follow and do what the donors want. like close the door where the the government are stealing. they want to be god to the donors.

  13. mutsamatione kuphusa chifukwa choti ife onsauka ndie mwanziwa amw komaso mutsamatiwopsese boma.lanulo akutukwana ndindani..chotimudziwe.ndichakuti nsitingaimbile m.manja zinthu zachibwana pokapo tilolela kukwanilitsa chomwe chili mutima mwanu pepani nsimwano ayi kma mtima ukuwawa dzikomoooo…..

  14. In this sence boma ndi cabinet .Tsopano tikanena kuti opposition athandize Kodi azigwilitsa njira yanji pothandiza upangiri wawowo?

    i azigwilitsa

  15. If those on the driving seat have run out of ideas on solutions to the problems Malawians are facing, then the best thing is to resign. We have a number of cases in which the government was advised by the opposition as well as the CSOs but the government did not take it ie the selling of MSB.

  16. This is not true even bwana Saulosi Chilima have been reising the same point,zipani zotsutsa boma sizingathandize boma to find the solutions of current economic problems, or developments. This is the duty of the government xcluding the opposition parties, just to remind mr Chisi and Mr Saulosi that malawians voted DPP and its president to rule the country in times of better or worse, DPP must find the solutions on its own more especially according to their manifesto, kodi iwowo a DPP mmesa anali a opposition? amkatani osamuthandiza Joyce Banda to find the solutions of developments or economics therefore ku malawi sikukanakhala zisankho chifukwa boma likanayenda chifukwa cha opposition,Chilima amayenda door to door kupanga campaign kuti akhale vice president mmalo moti akanangopanga contribute mzeru zawozo kwa Joyce Banda, nthawi zina atsogoleri athu amayankhula zopanda pake, leave the opposition alone

    • Thats why kumalawi munthu amatha kuphunzira mpaka ku university koma akamaliza maphunziro ake amakhalabe mbuli.Sitikudabwa malawi imatulutsa ma graduates every year.Koma dziko silikutukukabe. Amalawi timakhala ndi mentality yoti boma lokha ndiye lopanga chitukuko mdziko.Tikanena kuti #Opposition timatanthuza kutsutsa polakwika then kupereka solution ku boma yokonzela polakwikapo. Maiko ena anzathu amagwira ntchito choncho. Zomwe akunena achisi ndi za mzeru ndithu kuti opposition izipereka solution. Osamango bwebwetuka ayi ngati iwo munthawi yawo adachita chinthu chamzeru.

    • Thom BrightBanda do you remember kuti DPP inali opposition party? Kuya kukhala or kusakhala mbuli but remember that this doesn’t happens in our democracy, ikanakhala DPP kuthandiza PP last 2 years, lero ndiwowo akufuna kuti opposition iwathandize, how?

  17.
