MCP wants Malata-cement subsidies abolished

180

Malawi Congress Party (MCP) has called on government to abolish Malata -Cement subsidies arguing that funds should instead be channeled to Farm Input Subsidy Program (Fisp).

Juliana-Lunguzi

Lunguzi: Funds should be channeled to Fisp

Speaking in the national assembly, MCP legislator  for Dedza East Juliana Lunguzi called on government to add more funds to Fisp.

“In Malawi we haven’t reached a point of  subsidising houses, we are  very far on that. If we can have subsidies on production people can have money to build decent houses.

“As of now there is no food for the very sick people in public hospitals and the country is facing hunger situation, if more funds would have been channeled to production of food things can  work,” said Lunguzi.

Malawi government, through the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, launched

Malata – Cement subsidy  to provide decent houses to Malawians.

The programme which was approved by the National Assembly in the  2015/16 financial year is expected to use K7 billion.

  10. All subsidies (malata cement and fisp) should be abolished bacause poor Malawians are not beneficiaries of these subsidies….For example; Poor Mw’s are requsted to pay an extra/entry fee of K4,500.00 on top of the recommended fee of K3,500.00 to buy 1 bag of NPK and another fee to buy 1bag of UREA… Making K8,000.00 for 1 bag…. ACB where are you???? SELFISHNESS PEOPLE WHO DOES NOT LOVE THEIR WARMHEART MALAWI… SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

  11. Malata Subsdy Inayamba Chifukwa Mai J Banda Anayambitsa Prgram Yomangila Nyumba Anthu, Tsono Inu A Mcp Ngati Mukufuna Kuti Ithe Best Way Ndikungobweletsa Program Yanu Yokhudzananso Ndi Malata.

  12. You approved this budget in the first place. Kkkkk. Yavuta ndi nsanje a Congress coz this programme is a plus to the current DPP BOMA. Mukadzalowa mboma do abolish inuyo. This is a Blue print of DPP manifesto. Tisiyeni………

  13. MCP…..This is what made DPP win.They promised Malata/cement subsidy..Inuyo simunawine because we all know kuti MCP yomwe inatukula malawi No one is remaining except the last man onthe touch line JZU…. This programme is even happening in Israel already developed nations zimangosiya mayina….U guys in MCP are afraid of DPP approaches of following its manifesto kkkkk.Wakeup Lunguzi u are too young tobe reasoning mwa chikongeresi……Try to abolish it and see what the beneficiaries will react like…..Once again Cheat ur wives/husbands on The goodness of mcp not US….tikuziwani bwino!

  14. Nazoso izi! Malata ndi cement zotsika mtengo zikugwilizana buanji ndi kusowa tchakudya mchipatala? Paja musaiwale kut a JB adawoletsa chimanga mu mkhokwe za mdziko muno. MCP mbolish!asatinyase! kungova kut ndi a all-oposition basi tizingovela iwowo? Next term all-oposition idzakhala UDF, popeza DPP idzawinaso

  15. mbuzi za mcp musalowerere za mbanja mwa eni manifesto amenewa ndi a Dpp not mcp inu muzipanga za manifesto anu bwanji mukulibana ndi manifesto achipani china mwasowa zochita eti muli ndi manifesto anu ku mcp ndani anakuuzani kuti manifesto awa muchotse foolish kongelesi

  16. Economists will agree to MCP idea of abolishing subsdy…… Politicians will agree to DPP subsdy program….. They say: Usampatse msomba koma mpatse mbedza adziwedza…. Malawi z agro- based country….. Investing in Agriculture, we go inject more money into our economic circle…. This subsdy programs wont take us anywhere……..

    • yeah t hav to wait…… but it has to shout out when the driver seems to be slping…… they say subdising cement and malata to enhance poor peoples standard….. however, if that program get into system…. do u thnk its the poor who go benefit from it? if a person is failing to buy mbeu how can he/ sh manage to buy cement…… think broo b4 u politicise……

    • They say MCP does not provide alternatives, whats this? An ill timed subsidy. Improve the economy and I assure you Malawians will build houses and better ones than those you are building for them.

    • R u kidding @Kelvin Mpango? Why didn’t most poor Malawians build decent houses during the economic boom of Kamuzu Banda and Bingu administrations? Even FISP has proved to be the waste of resources coz it is not transforming de lives of de beneficiaries. It has helped to instill dependency syndrome among our small scaled farmers. It is de same people every year which should not have been the case. So if MCP says it (malata and cement subsidy) is not good for our economy but fisp they r just trying to divert our minds. I would say both have their pros and cons coz shelter is also a basic need a human being must have and they hav implications to our economy.

    • subsidy aint bad Joseph Diverson…… but u cant subsidise your commodities when your economy is at trough, now Malawi is trying to recover its economy, thus, can subsidy help in recovery plan? …. subsdy is a program to go when your economy is at boom in order to solve inflation….. during Bingu administration our economy was at boom….. subsidy program was a welcome development……

  17. here is a lot of Malawians that think, that politicians should start taking responsabillity and grow up, instead of chasing the next vote. This Beloved Country of ours is bleading.Who carers. We all want our freebees without thinking about this country of ours and where are we taking it to.Love you Pauline. Keep up your hard work.

  18. i do agree with them unless thy change the system of identifying those to benefit, zikufanana ndi imput sudsdy yomwe amapindula ndi anthu ochita bwino…

  25. Power is derived from people, electorate or voters. If some people won election on promise of decent and affordable housing program let them run the program. If it fails people will vote them out. But if there is no money for the program, government will be forced to review the implementation process. They will have to go back to people and say, look guys, wait until we have money for that. This is simply about money. But housing is a very important for developing countries. Talk of poor like me. Those who are rich, oppulent and well to do may see the program useless. Remember UN sustainable development goals. Gender, climate change, fighting poverty, child mortality, shelter, decent clothes, food, basic education………. they are all very important and priorities as per UN goals.

  26. Chipani cha MCP ndi chopondereza zoonadi ndi chifukwa chakedi nthawi ya Kamuzu munthu ukamanga nyumba amakupanga interrogate. Asiyeni nawowonso amphawi apumeko kukadula udzu chaka ndi chaka. Ngakhale kuno ku RSA boma likumamangira anthu nyumba mwinanso za ku Malawi zo ndi zabwino.

  33. Ever since subsidized or free commodities have never benefitted all Malawians. Bakili had free farm inputs, Bingu had FISP, Joyce had Mudzi Transformation Trust and Ng’ombe zaulere and APM has Cement-malata….we were there.! I choose to disagree with MCP.

    • Davie o u don’t know wat u are talking about how can u work hard without resources for the work. Can u work hard when your salaries are lower than you spend, before comment mukuganiza. Just stay quite if u don’t know anything.

  39. I agree with MCP zithu zafika on finishing line zoona mpaka odwala kumapephetsa zakudwa mumidzi kuthawa njala muzipatara. Bwana APM stop your campaign mapilisi a TB ndani angamwe asanadye.

  40. Very intellectual idea honourable Lunguzi. What this government is doing, it’s like it has been put in a bottle so that it cannot further liberty its thinking capacity.It is very pathetic to see people in vast areas,struggling their lives for food while the government is diverting alot of money to Malata Subsidy Programme. This is the extreme typical sign of failure. They just think as if everything is good. They don’t visit the rural areas where the duty of the government needs to be shown. This pains me really.

  41. In mature democracies gvt . takes note of such briliant ideas and go back to the drawing board and adjust their projects. But in Malawi such is taken as nonsense because only gvt. has the best ideas. But surprisingly if on the next day the same idea is brought by the donors and mind you these are young boys and girls from IMF and World Bank the whole government machinery trembles. What a shame. Malawi needs to do business unusual otherwise we are doomed with this mindset. Bravo Juliana for the courage. Look to God for more wisdom.

  42. Nkhaniyi ndiyomveka ndithu koma ndimene limatangwanitsira dzinja nyumba ikakhala yosalongosoka umachita kusowa mpoika feteleza komanso zokolorazo mwina kumaonongeka kumene, mmalo mosamalika kuti zizagwire ntchito yake bwino.

  43. Hungry people sleeping in decent houses kkkk! There is no need to introduce other programmes when we are failing miserably to implement already existing ones. This is madness at its best.

  44. Hahaha mmesa inu a Congress mumati a Malawi amagona mnyumba zosathonya? Juliana! Juliana!Juliana! Ng’oma yolira kwambiri sichedwatu kung’ambika. You think by making noise in the parliament you will gain anything? Talk to the government on one to one then you will get what you want. Politics of confrontation has never worked in Malawi. Ukhalira kuwuwa choncho akufinya suzamvekanso. Fusa anzako ali kuti lero? Kodi suwona wolemekezeka ali kumenekowo akhala 15 years the likes of Njobvu yalema but they don’t talk trush like you do. Uzadabwatu tsiku lina zitakuonekera. Politics is a dirty game! Ask the spirit of your late father to guide you.

    • Man osamuwopyeza Juliana a Malawi opusa ngati inu sindinakuwoneni mukufuna munthu asalankhule chowona jst bcoz ndi gvt kkkkkkkkkkkkkk……. I support Juliana’s idea and its true.

  45. Munthu oganiza sangagone mu nyumba ya malata ali ndi njala. We Malawians depend on Agriculture, government should think twice on that.
