Malawi President Peter Mutharika has urged Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and opposition parties to work together with government in order to develop this country.
Mutharika said this in Zomba-Chisi constituency where he held a campaign rally in support of Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) candidate Mark Botomani ahead of by-elections scheduled for December 22 in the area.
The by-elections are taking place after the death of a DPP Member of Parliament for the constituency, Peter Mangulenje.
Mutharika said the problem with most Malawians is that they like pointing fingers at one another, a habit which is slowing down the development of the country. ”We must be united to end problems facing the country and stop pointing fingers at one another, we must be patriotic,” said Mutharika.
He added that his government is implementing various development projects to change people’s lives such as the construction of roads and community colleges as well as the implementation of malata-cement subsidy.
Mutharika then warned vendors who buy Admarc maize in bulk that they will face the law and he reassured Malawians that no one will die of hunger in the country.
