22

One of the organizations in the country which was established in response to the negative effects of alcohol intake by youths, Drug fight Malawi, has expressed dissatisfaction in the way government is handling the National Alcohol Policy.

Executive Director for Drug Fight Malawi, Nelson Zakeyu, said government is taking time to implement the policy.

Zakeyu: We want progress.

”There is no progress when it comes to the implementation of the alcohol policy, we would love government to consider the policy as an issue of national importance,” said Zakeyu.

He further said that it has been long since the policy was taken to the office of the president to be scrutinised.

He added that government should look into the welfare of people as they are yearning to have the policy implemented.

According to Zakeyu, most children are being destroyed by alcoholism hence the need to quickly implement the policy.

For a long time Drug Fight Malawi has been asking government to implement the drug policy but nothing has been done.

  3. There no real sense of direction on the drug and alcohol use and abuse in Malawi. Something really serious needs to be done to protect our young people….

  4. Kodi kabungwe aka kabwera ndimapokoso bwanji??wosakawotcha minda ya chamba ku nkhota-kota bwa?ngati muli madolo…ndisamveso mukukamba za beer apa ndiuza masapota a Hules abwelenso.

  5. By fighting drug consumption amongst the youths it’s good also consider human rights not just force them by hindering their rights…think of your past during your youths days….

  6. beer should be sold only in the afternoon hours till ten oclock. I am afraid, malawi will have the citizens who will be very lazy. As am writing, these people are drinking right away in my sight. Very productive young guys. However, it might b bcz of idleness and lack of capital. I beg to remain.
