The Malawi Government has asked opposition parties to stop criticising it and instead to start presenting solutions to the problems facing Malawians.
This follows remarks made by Malawi Congress Party (MCP) spokesperson Jessie Kabwila who said government has failed Malawians especially on the hunger situation.
“The DPP government has failed the country as people are sleeping on an empty stomach and we as the opposition will always speak what is true,” said Kabwila.
She further said that people in the country are in deep problems and want the president to step down because he has failed.
However, government spokesperson Jappie Mhango said the opposition are supposed to assist government and not to criticise for the sake of criticising.
“The opposition is there to assist government in bringing solutions to the problems facing the country,” said Mhango.
He added that in Malawi the opposition are always criticising the government rather than bringing solutions.
Mhango has since called upon the opposition to provide their contributions on how government can solve problems facing the country.
