As the country is currently running without budgetary support, a political commentator in the country has asked government to bow down to the demands of donors saying the country will not survive without donor aid.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) suspended a loan facility to Malawi due to overspending in the bills as well as on subsidies.
One of the political commentators in the country Humphreys Mvula said Malawi can’t survive without donor support as the country does not have investments in production.
“Malawi can’t survive without help from donors, there is a need for the country to win back the support from donors and we need to bow down to the donors’ demands as they want us to put tight measures in financial discipline,” said Mvula.
He further said that the country has not invested in money making ventures and relies on agriculture which has failed us.
Mvula added that government needs to speed up cashgate cases as demanded by the donors and there is a need to strictly check the system of handling cash as at the moment it is porous.
